i DEI1I5 By JOHO BUIIEBS (ammodore prepare far TWO bundles
which Commodore believe will attract entry-level Amiga sales
through the spring and summer have just been unveiled by the
firm.
Summer sales Computer Combat is the name of the latest A1200 pack - not surprisingly billed as Commodore's biggest and best value introduction ever to the Amiga computer.
The £349 bundle contains seven software packages - split between productivity programs and some recent games aimed at showing the computer’s versatility.
They include Psygnosis platformer Brian the Lion. Zool 2 from Gremlin Graphics and Total Carnage. ICE's conversion of the coin-op shoot-’em-up.
Three of Digita International's productivity programs are packed with the machine - word processor Wordworth v2. Personal organiser Day-by-Day. And the Print Manager utility.
But after several years’ inclusion in Amiga bundles. Electronic Arts’ art package Deluxe Paint has been replaced by Personal Paint 4 from Italian developer Cloanto.
Commodore say that after a run of packs containing the EA program, they believe the time is right for a change and Personal Paint is an ideal replacement.
The software supports HAM screen modes and is claimed to offer a huge array of image processing tools and the ability to support many file formats.
And Commodore have continued their policy of rotating software packed with the CD32, now offering buyers two 32-bit games including Psygnosis's Microcosm.
It is joined by Renegade’s Chaos Engine and while stocks last the £299 Spectacular Voyage pack will include the four games from the Dangerous Streets bundle it supersedes.
Microcosm took programmers three years to create. It is set inside a human body where the player mans a miniaturised craft sent to save an important dignitary from virus-like villains.
The Bitmap Brothers' Chaos Engine takes place in a Victorian age in which ten mercenaries seeks to destroy the out-ofcontrol chaos engine.
Dangerous Streets contained the games Dangerous Streets, Wing Commander.
Diggers and Oscar.
"I consider it paramount that every new bundle should be better than the last," said Commodore managing director David Pleasance. “But it gets tougher every time."
The A1200 Desktop Dynamite bundle which proved popular with buyers over Christmas will be available from dealers while stocks last.
? And newspaper Computer Trade Weekly questioned its suitability for the industry entertainment of MONITOR Man has been dropped from the games industry's classification artwork just weeks after the body representing Europe’s software houses launched the age rating system.
And two games makers will not be following the ELSPA system, which is intended to ease Government and parental concern j over the suitability of some software for young children.
Nintendo and Acclaim say that although they agree with the system's objectives, they would like to take a global view on the situation and are looking to the US for an alternative. I Other companies are also believed to be hoping that' a replacement comes along, although many are simply relieved that Monitor Man has been removed from boxes.
There was criticism that the character was outdated interactive the 90s.
“Several members decided that Monitor Man was not appropriate. And as a result the ELSPA logo has been put in its place," said ELSPA chairman Mark Strachan.
‘We’ve been working on this system for a year. It was passed unanimously by members and will go ahead."
He added that while some firms were looking towards worldwide classification, he thought such a system would be impractical because of different standards across the world.
Amiga Computing II MAY 1 994 Telephone help goes automatic AN automated telephone answering system just set up on Commodore's official helpline enables Amiga owners to discover solutions to their problems in an efficient way.
It registers the caller's question to a chain of answers and by elimination arrives at th® solution they are looking for.
Calls vary from dealers asking how to resolve a fault in the machine to users wanting toj know how to plug it in.
“We introduced this service to allow callers to solve problems themselves with recorded information," said Commodore’s customer service manager Terry Maguire.
“This frees up the receptionists to get engineers out to users more quickly."
ICL's Peter Horridge added: "Most caller are happy to use the automated service. Bui we mustn’t forget that we have to keep a balance between automation and humani contact."
The help is available to holders of an ICL warranty by telephoning 0345 626090.
Network grows for Interworks CLWYD-based Amiga specialist Ramiga have expanded further recently by setting up European distribution for California-based Interworks' networking products.
The firm's range of solutions will be support by professional training programmes and technical support by telephone and a bulletin board.
They include networking software ENLAN-DFS v2 and the I- Card PCMCIA Ethernet card for the A600 and A1200.
The l-Card package includes a 16-bit Ethernet adaptor and a driver compatible with Commodore's SANA-II networking standard to allow the Amiga to tie-in with the firm's ENLAN-DFS.
Each ENLAN-DFS package enables up to five Amigas fitted with Ethernet adaptors to share directories and peripherals, and is supplied with all software needed to network the computers.
“Interworks have always been interested in developing a much closer working relationship with our overseas partners." Said company president Allen Brooks.
“This new partnership between Interworks and Ramiga established a path dedicated to building and supporting a professional reseller channel throughout Europe.” I-Card and ENLAN-DFS cost £292.58 each from Ramiga International (0690 770304).
FaH modem falls under tlDD COMMUNICATIONS prices have fallen further, with US Robotics (0753 811180) now cutting the price of their Sportster 2400 fax modem from £149 to £99.
The move comes as rival manufacturers launch cheap mcdems. Telephone prices continue to fall and just weeks after on-line system CompuServe cut costs for British users.
The Sportster 2400 is aimed at home and small office users who do not need high data rates. It supports Group III. 9.600 bits per second send and receive fax with 2,400bps data throughput.
The modem is BABT approved and comes with a five-year warranty.
SPEECH has been added to language software specialist Lcl's range of Amiga courses following the success of Micro Spanish, their first program to feature talking.
The firm say animated cartoons that speak and speech from a native speaker make their French. German and English courses a more enjoyable and effective experience than ever before.
Pictures, adventure games and music Speaking the language Amiga Computing MAY 1994 IIEIU5 BRIEFS are also used in an attempt to take students from beginner to GCSE standard.
All three courses - each costing £24.99
- are claimed to follow the National Curriculum closely and the
attainment targets of each program are given in their
manuals.
Upgrades from earlier versions cost £5 plus the return of the onginai disk to LCL at Thames House, 73 Blandy Road. Henley on-Thames RG9 1QB. Tel: 0491 579345.
[032 in IGI promo COMMODORE have teamed up with TGI Friday to help launch the restaurant's new Kids Club and further boost the Amiga’s image with the young.
Children joining the club have the chance of winning one of three CD32 Dangerous Streets bundles - each worth £299 - and receive goodies including a magazine. Frisbee and T- shirt.
Details of the Amiga promotion will appear on all placement settings at TGI’s 13 restaurants for the next few weeks.
Silica join Debonhams SILICA Systems, the London-based hardware and software dealer, are to expand their High Street presence by opening computer shopping areas in Debenhams stores.
The first to open will be in the shop on Oxford Street, London, and there are plans to step up the operation in provincial cities such as Manchester.
The company already have their own shops in Sidcup and on Tottenham Court Road. London and trade from Debenhams in Croydon and Ipswich.
[loch matching A SOFTWARE-based real-time clock that runs alongside the Harlequin 32-bit frame buffer has just been announced by Zen.
It will enable a breakfast television- style clock to be displayed in broadcast material produced with Amigas, and can be moved about the screen.
Amiga Centre Scotland (0896 87583) will be selling the program, but price remains to be fixed.
Ujordiuarth update WORDWORTH 3 compatibility problems have been ironed out of the software with the release of a technical update by maker Dlgita International (0395 270273).
Version 3.0a of the word processor is free to all registered users, and also features an improved operating speed and a “general tune-up" of the package.
“Our programmers have done an excellent job in responding so quickly to customer feedback.” said Digita boss Jeremy Rihll.
“Users will notice that Wordworth now feels tighter and faster, includes enhanced file export filters and drag and drop editing."

tor PAL Amlgaa LightRaue to run lightUJaue ANIMATORS can now
use graphics software Lightwave 3D on European Amigas not
fitted with a Video Toaster, according to Ramiga International
(0690770304).
Lightwave is regarded by experts as one of the premier graphics packages for the Amiga, being quick, powerful and very easy to use.
But until now it could only be used on American systems fitted with NewTek's expensive Video Toaster in a complete package costing around £2,000.
Ramiga claim that custom hardware module LightRave emulates all the functions needed by Lightwave 3D. And that they can sell the two products for £799.
The company also say that LightRave delivers faster rendering than a Toaster-equipped Amiga and has support for most 24-bit graphics cards.
Full screen preview animations are promised, and because images are stored in standard Anim formats they can be transferred and edited by other programs.

Graphics sgstem uses uideo speed A NEW version of Great Valley Products' IV24 video graphics system will soon be launched to take advantage of the A4000's faster video bus.
The developers say it will be twice as fast as the existing board when installed m the A4000 and perform as well as before in other Zorro-based Amigas.
The IV24-A4000 software has been upgraded and will be accompanied by ImageFX v1.5. which fully supports the IV24 for frame grabbing, video processing, painting and rendenng to tape.
The British distributor is Silica Systems, who can be telephoned on 081-309 1111. At press time prices remained to be fixed.
And Buying an Amiga has been written for the newcomer. It is claimed to give independent advice on how to get the best computer and a glossary of terms relevant to the machine.
Publisher AmaKey Design (0908 370230) say they aim to provide low cost titles that everyone can afford and intend to make updates as and when hardware and software change. Each title costs £9.95. moderns extend Siren range SIREN Software have added Best Data’s Smart One line of modems to their range of Amiga products, with prices starting at just £69.99 for a 2.400 baud model.
But according to Siren's Simon Cobb, the Smart One 1442FX costing £199 offers the best features and value for money.
It operates at between 1.200 and 14.400 bits per second, can send and receive faxes at 14,400bps and is fax Group Ill- compatible.
The modem comes with N-Comm 3 software, a two-year warranty and beginners’ guide. Fax software is available from the firm for an extra £49.99. “Although a cheaper 2.400 standard modem is available .
This is not really cost effective because you run up higher telephone bills." Explained Cobb.
Uideo help for ImageFX British suppsrt extends enline ONLINE information giant CompuServe (0800 289378) have announced a range of new services aimed at their 35.000 British members.
The company's product marketing manager Martin Turner says the first new service - expected within the next few weeks - will feature reviews of films, movies, books and theatres.
A Newswire feature due around the same time will contain news and sport information from around Britain. And the company plan to extend their financial and travel services, although Turner declined to give more details on these improvements.
“We recently launched four travel databases provided by the Automobile Association which are already proving to be very successful said Turner.
‘Within fhe coming months we expect to introduce a number of leading UK-focused news, travel, entertainment and financial products.’ Members pay around £6 per month for unlimited access to more than 70 basic services during off-peak hours. There are additional costs for access to other areas and during prime hours.
A VIDEO tutorial showing how to get to grips with Great Valley Products image processing tool ImageFX 1.5 has just been released.
“First-time users will benefit from the itemised coverage Of the tool panel, preferences settings and many other features of ImageFX." Said GVP’s product manager Gary Nash.
“Experts will appreciate the time-saving tips and professional techniques offered to make every project look better in less time."
GVP's British distributor Silica Systems (081-309 1111) did not have UK availability details at press time.
The three-and-a-half-hour Video Guide to ImageFX covers everything from basic procedures and concepts to hi-end techniques aimed at saving time and creating the best images.
There is a step-by-step guide to the tool panel and an introduction to configuring the software for a user’s individual needs.
DIGITAL Processing Systems' Personal Animation Recorder now available in Britain allows animation sequences to be recorded and played back in real time direct from hard disks.
Previously only available on American systems, the DR-3150 card plugs into Zorro slots on the A2000. A3000 and A4000 - replacing the record VCR and single frame controller.
Component digital recording techniques enable the recording and real-time playback of full resolution animations, avoiding bad edits, missed frames and drop-outs well-known to VCRs. Support is available for common Amiga image formats including 24-bit IFF and the card is claimed to be fully compatible with programs such as Real 3D. MorphPlus and Imagine.
Sequences built from pre-rendered AmigaDOS files can also be run from the £1,968 card, and the set-up can be expanded with DPS's AD-3000 Video Capture card. The AD- 3000 - costing £1.051 - carries out real-time continuous video captures for adding human-style movement to animations (rotoscoping), time lapse and other special effects.
The DR-3150 needs a dedicated hard drive, with a 500Mb model expected to give between three and five minutes of storage capacity depending on image complexity.
Both boards are sold by Amiga Centre Scotland, who can be telephoned on 0896 87583.

ctnnjf - rv«5* return re coucxn In' the Iwc HarmaMo r GRAPHICS Stars their shies Denny HtHin bring5 news of an astronomically powerful new program, as well as the rest- of the news from the States- news irtual Reality Labs Inc have just released a new version of their acclaimed desktop planetarium program. Distant Suns. Release 5,0’s biggest improvement is full AGA support for A1200 and A4000 owners.
You can now pull up 256-colour images of planets, moons, and other celestial objects - about 25 are included with the program, and you can add your own to the database.
The user interface has been improved with a new tool + box with 20 buttons covering the most commonly used functions. A total of 8,000 stars from the Hubble Guide Star catalogue are now included, supporting stars down to 16th magnitude (so dim that most amateur telescopes can't resolve them).
If that's not enough for you, VRLI are considering creating a Distant Suns CD-ROM with the entire 16 million star Hubble Guide Star catalogue.
If you have a CD-ROM drive on your Amiga and you're interested in that (or in a version of VistaPro on CD packed with landscapes). VRLI ask that you drop them a note or fax them and let them know.
You're no longer limited to just star gazing. Distant CUP ditch S[SI-a card for the (14000 GVP have cancelled development of the A4098 SCSI-II card. This follows their advertising of the A4098 SCSI-II card, a Zorro III DMA adaptor for the Amiga 4000, for the last few months. GVP marketing manager Steve Peoples said that the company weren't satisfied with the card’s performance due to the DMA problems that plague the A4QQ0 040.
Rather than release a card that wouldn't perform well on the majority of A4000s in the field, GVP halted development until Commodore can provide a solution for the Zorro III DMA problem.
If you have deep pockets, though, you can still get a fast SCSI-II solution from GVP. The soon-to-be-released G-Force 040 40MHz card for the Amiga 4000 will have an optional SCSI-II FAST expansion card. Because the card mounts on the G-Force processor board, it's not affected by the bad-Buster Zorro DMA transfer problems.
Suns will now render planets as 3D solid objects, complete with optional gnd-maps showing latitudes and longitudes, You can zoom in and view each planet from eight different angles.
Other improvements include new Arexx commands for automating your viewing and more precise field-of-view adjustments. Distant Suns v5.0 requires AmigaDOS v2.04 or later. 2Mb of RAM (with at least 1 Mb being chip . RAM), and a hard drive. The program retails for $ 99.95; upgrades for owners of any previous version are $ 39.95. Add $ 10 for overseas air mail shipping.
VistaPro. The popular 3D landscape rendering program, is in for an enhancement as well. Version 3.1 was being finished up as this article was being written, and is expected to include better AGA support, as well as Support for the Picasso. Retina and OpalVision display board.
Also new is the ability to export your landscape files in AutoCad DXF format, so they can be brought into 3D rendering programs.
Pricing wasn't available as this went to press contact VRLI for upgrade information at phone (805) 545-8515; fax (805) 781-2259; or write them at 2341 Ganador Court. San Luis Obispo, California 93401 USA.
Shoot the Ifloon Following on the heels of Microbotics' acquisition by Paravision. Hard-disk utility manufacturers Moonlighter Software Development's product line have been acquired by Intelligent Designs Inc. The company will continue to support and develop Ami-Back, Ami-Back Tools, and TapeWorm- FS.
Proof of the company's continued commitment to the products is IDI’s announcement of Ami- Back 3.0. which should be available early this summer.
The updated hard dnve backup program will be the first ever to use an objed-onented user interface, which should make it easier to use for novice users, but more powerful for expens.
New features include support for the Tar tape- backup format, useful for transferring files to Pcs, Macs, and Unix machines; SmartScnbe, an intelligent Scnpt-recwJing feature; backup or restore of multiple devices in a single operation; and full support of AmigaDOS 3 features.
The new user interface is helped out by thorough on-line documentation with a comprehensive index. Ami-Back 3.0 will retail for $ 89.95; a discount will be available for registered users of earlier versions.

Imagelllaster Redux Black Belt Systems' new ImageMaster fVT 1.5 adds a host of new abilities to what was already one of the most feature- packed image-processing programs on the market.
Many of the image operators - such as radial wave, dome, and caricature - have been greatly improved, and there are new operators such as Gaussian Blur.
Display speed on AGA machines have been increased, and ImageMaster R T now supports loading and saving all the major Amm formats - Anim5, Anim7, and Anim8.
The interface has been revamped, with new area selection capabilities, zebra stripe area selection indicators, and more accurate selection boundaries.
The morphing interface has also been upgraded, and there's a new easy-to-use spline-based sequencing interface.
And if you're using ImageMaster’s paint functions, the new drawing tablet support. ImageMaster Rf has done away with paper documentation in favour of on-line hypertext help.
Normally I don’t like this option - it's nice to hold a complete manual in your hands when you're working with a program - but Black Belt have outdone themselves with their help system. ApAssist is a very easy-to-use, fast hypertext program that allows Black Belt to embed illustrations in their help files.
With a program as complex as ImageMaster, having the documentation on-line is actually a plus. ImageMaster R Ts retail price has been dropped to only $ 99.95. Upgrades are available for $ 25 for US users, and $ 30 outside the US Orders must be in American funds, but credit cards are accepted. Contact:

1T 15 i MJMJ igjjBj EDITORIAL Hi Dinging the changes T I noticed from ali sms that are still uom most of interested games a agazines don't change the way they j I i I look all that often, and it is even rarer that they make an effort to change the style of their editorial content.
This month, we have begun a process of change which, over the next couple of issues, will tailor AC to fit your tastes and preferences even closer than before.
Your answers and responses to the reader survey carried out late last year are the impetus behind this process, and without you the change would not have taken place. So just who are you anyway?
We have always appealed mostly to the older reader with a broad range of interests, rather than the single-minded teenage games player, but the last year has seen a huge rise in the number of mature enthusiast readers the magazine attracts. Over 90 per cent of you, for example, are over 18 - a much higher figure than shown by the previous survey.
Consoles seem to have siphoned off the younger users to leave a more stable readership with productivity and enthusiast pursuits highest on the list of favourite Amiga uses, and the number of you who are interested in programming has also increased.
As a direct result, we've decided to make a few changes. The general re-styling of the front cover and main features pages was an attempt to give the magazine a more 90s look and feel for the older reader, and we have introduced more programming tutorials, but probably the biggest change is in the games department.
Gamer, our long-running games section, was never property integrated with the rest of the magazine in terms of style or content, and though we believed it was relevant to the sons and daughters of many of our readers, we noticed from all surveys that most of you are still very interested in games.
To bnng you a modem games section with the modem reader in mind, we've decided to scrap Gamer completely and start from scratch. The new approach concentrates on presenting as much information as possible while incorporating a scoring system to which readers can relate.
New games will be compared, briefly, to existing games of the same type, and the method by which we score all games has been radically changed. From this month onwards, all games start with 50 per cent, and go up or down if the reviewer thinks they are better or worse than average.
To most magazines these days. 80 per cent is an average score, and anything below 70 per cent is truly awful. Under System's new scoring regime, a game would have to be very good to score 80 per cent, and 70 per cent would still be a good score worthy of a medal.
The debate over scoring, however, is Still going on in the office, with two equal camps fighting it out for the upper hand. Some support a percentile system, others would like to see games marked out of 20 or even ten.
We'll be looking at how the scoring works over the next few months, so if you have an opinion on how it should be done, please write and share your views with us.
GRATIFYING Our coverage of serious hardware and software has been tweaked rather than changed because a gratifyingly large number of you stated that you were satisfied both with the level of coverage and the style in which the more technical reviews are written.
Only a few of you thought them too technical or confusing, but to ensure that we reach everyone we will be placing more emphasis on jargon busters and explanations for beginners without, hopefully, exasperating Our more erudite readers.
Where possible and relevant, we will also strive to bring you background information on new products and the markets in which they will be sold.
Profiles of the developers, and overviews of. Say. The videography industry should pul product reviews into perspective and give readers a better understanding of where the latest wizzo gadget comes from.
A criticism of this style has. In the past, preached that reviews should concentrate solely on the subject at hand, but we feel from looking at the views of our readers that you are a bunch of well-balanced people with broad interests.
If we can present the information you buy the magazine to read and, in addition, inform and entertain you with related material, we hope you'll agree that the magazine will be a better overall read.
The use of background and related materia) will also be prevalent in System, our new games section, so we hope you enjoy the new feel to reviews.
If not. And you object strongly enough to write to Ezra Surf, please do. We are determined that before 1994 is out we will have reached a formula with which the vast majority of those who pay our salaries are content.

R ' P "A" Users of Workbench later than 1.3 can use the official Commodore installer program which we have especially adapted to de- archive the contents of the CoverDisks with the minimal amount of fuss.
The installer is simple to use; just follow the instructions and click the buttons. Make sure you boot from your CoverDisk with the disk write enabled when de-archiving Personal Fonts Maker and Epoch Master.
When installing Spooler and Dtree boot from your Workbench disk or hard drive as the programs are installed onto these disks, although any auto-booting disk will do.
Hard drive installation Hard drive owners should simply copy the dearchived programs across but will need to make an assign for Personal Fonts Maker to work properly. Load up Ed then load the start- up-sequence file located in the S directory.
Just before the LoadWB command type in: Workbench 1.3 Users with 1.3 machines should double click on the lnstallPFM_1.3 to de-archive the Personal Fonts Maker program. We will be working to adapt the Commodore installer so that it works on 1,3 machines in the future.

For all occasions ersonal Fonts Maker is a superb.
? O Take it down to the letter with tloanto's completely stunning Personal Fonts fllaker program. Design your oum character set in this fully working application fully functioning application which allows you to create your own fonts.
These can be incorporated into your own page layouts, used to improve the Workbench look or downloaded into a printer for finer print quality.
After completing the de-archiving procedure. Open up the Personal Fonts Maker disk icon and then click on the PFM icon which will load up the application. Ignore the Audio requester by clicking on the Proceed button.
The interface may look fairly complex at first but by following this tutorial carefully you should be able to design your own fonts very quickly. The interface is split into five different sections, four of which are present on the main display at all times.
Most of the screen is taken up by the font editing grid, This is where you actually create each character. To the left are the design icons and above them the font statistics.
Beside the main display there are the menu options at the top of the screen.
The first thing to do is to understand how the editing of characters is achieved.
Characters within a font can either be on or off which is indicated by the button marked OFF When saving PFM fonts only the characters marked ON are saved. This saves space, unlike Amiga fonts which save all the characters whether they are On or Off.
Click on the Off button so that it reads C and you will notice that the grid change colour slightly. This is just to inform that yc can now go about editing that particul?

the draw button.
Using the Load Brush option from the Brush menu at the top of the screen you can load in pre-designed brushes from popular art packages such as Deluxe Painf. Any brush can be rotated, flipped and resized using the options in the Brush menu.
Some of you may prefer to reduce the grid’s size so that you can edit the character almost at its actual size. To do this simply Tools of the trade i 1 ±r I Brush Definition Rode ON on Hod* Bru»t Mii.dlr Upper t *M Brush Re ; 7e Slretch ® Preit Right Button. II • Po-. Il ton: MM Ret"**?

H you make a mistake you can always cick on the Undo button and if you are totally unhappy with your character design, dick on th CLR button which will wipe the slate ctean. So to speak.
ARROW BUTTONS The character's position within the grid can be altered by clicking on the four arrow buttons to the bottom left. These will scroll the character in the selected direction and
• rap it around should pixels bleed off any of fw edges.
You can also flip the character both vertical and horizontally by clicking the buttons alongside the scroll buttons. These will flip the character from the centre axis in the gnd Apart from the standard drawing of pixels. You can grab a defined section of the character using the brush tool. Click the brush tool and then drag a box around the area in the grid you wish to grab. Using the same technique for drawing pixels you can Nothing can be more time-consuming when you have to add the same effect to several characters within a font.
Fortunately Personal Fonts Maker has the ability to perform macros which can be called to perform a certain task.
Draw a square on the editing grid and then press Ctrl-A.
The square will be outlined with a shadow. This is called a macro - a series of commands saved as a recording and then played back. Let s create a new macro.
First clear anything you have entered into the editing grid with the CLR button. Select the Macro menu at the top of the screen and then select Start Record.
At this point a requester will appear asking you to select a macro. Click on the C: option and then type in the name of your macro in the text window of the requester - ' Font: 1 0 S Char. :33 XS ize: 37 0 Space: 37 Kern ing IB 0 Default I ¦ tvOry attribute associated with the character you are presently editing cast be accessed from here Recording macros The macro requester allows you to define recorded sequences which can be played back at any time with a simple key press «I» : Record Necro Out Shadow.ni r lota.wr DrawSquare for example. The C indicates what letter you should press
in conjunction with Ctrl (the macro hotkey) in order for the macro to run You can view all the macros presently Click On the loaded by selecting examine Macros Proceed button at which point the pointer will turn into an M indicating that a macro is being recorded. Draw a square and then return to the Macro menu and select End Record.
Now CLR the grid and then press Ctrl-C. You should have a square on the editing grid - the exact square you drew when recording the macro. You can store the macro permanently by selecting Save Macro.
The Controlled Execution option in the Macro menu allows you to perform macro functions over entire fonts at a single time. Select the macro you wish to use from the requester and then type in which character range you wish to effect in the From and To boxes.
When you click on Proceed the program will set off the macro execution over the range you specified.
WINDOW TYPING The final button, and certainly one of the most important, is the ab button. When you click on this a window will appear at the bottom of the screen. By clicking in this window and typing you will be able to see the effect of your designs.
You can continue editing the character with the window open but if you really need to get rid off it simply click on the ab button again.
Now let’s take a look at the font gadgets above the editing buttons. The first gadget is Font. When you first load up Personal Fonts Maker the program automatically loads in two fonts, provided you have enough memory.
By clicking on the Font 1 2 symbol you can alternate between the two fonts, the number of which is displayed alongside the 1 2 button.
The Char gadget allows you to flip through all the characters in the font. Most click on the reduce or enlarge button respectively. Copying and pasting characters is made very easy lhanks to Personal Fonts Maker's user-friendly interface. To copy an icon simply click on the copy to buffer button and to paste it on the copy from buffer button.
The Or button needs a little more explanation and is used primarily with the brush, flip, scroll and copy buttons. When you Or a character with another all the pixels that are black (on) are drawn but any white pixels (off) are ignored. A prime example is to cut an area with the brush and then stamp it down elsewhere on the grid. With the Or button selected none of the white pixels will cover pixels that were previously black. The best way to see the effect is to experiment with a combination of Or and the above buttons.

- -Hi What's in a letterf Spaced out Sieing up font characters
occupy 32 to 255. Though there are exceptions to the rule. Use
the arrows to flip through the characters which are shown in
the editing grid. Remember to turn the corresponding character
On before you begin editing.
The horizontal size of the editing grid can be controlled using the Xsize arrows - the minimum size is 1. A proportional font allows characters to be designed in different widths.
The letter I for example would take less space than say the letter M. This also saves on storage.
You can alter the spacing between characters with the Space gadget. This dictates how close the following character will be to the one you are presently editing. It also informs the printer how many dots the printer head has to be moved to the right after the character data is pnnted.

Gadgets or ? ~ ~ ? T Reference point Font creation made easg diately following the last character which was pnnted or displayed.
The Default gadget informs you which reference character you are editing. By clicking on the reference character you will be presented with the quick character selection window.
If you click on a character you will be taken back to the main editing screen with that character in the editing grid. By clicking on the Mode gadget all the characters that are Off will be displayed. You can toggle them On and Off by clicking over them with the nght mouse button.
When you are comfortable with the editing tools you will no doubt want to design your own font. The best step is to first design yourself an Amiga font which can be used with word processors and on the Workbench itself.
GUIDELINES Before you start there is one more very useful editing tool you should know about that will make the job easier. Personal Fonts Maker provides four special guidelines that you can use with the editing grid. The guidelines allow you to specify vertical positions down the character as a reference aid. They help to maintain a coherent relationship from one character to another.
The guidelines should be positioned at the height of the capital line, the mean line, the baseline and the underline position, To move a guideline click on it with the mouse and drag it to its new position.
At the point when you click on the guideline a menu will appear showing each one. Its colour and associated key - F1 to F4. When you are ready to release the guideline, press the appropriate F key and it will drop into position When you move through the characters the guidelines will remain fixed in place.
To save your Amiga font you should select Export Amiga Font from the Project menu. A requester will appear asking you to type in the name of your new font. Click on Proceed to save it.
The requester looks for the FONTS directory on your Workbench disk. If you have only one floppy drive you may have to perform some disk swapping. Second drive and hard drive owners needn't worry.
The Attributes menu allows you to assign The fonts you design in Personal Foni Maker are known as bitmap fonts. Th€ are made up of pixels, the smallest ima$ a computer can display. The pixels ca either be on (black) or off (white) and on!
The black pixels are displayed when It font is printed or displayed.
When the computer comes to dispia the font the black and white pixels a converted into binary, which is how con puters operate. Originally, computer could only write fonts in set dimension but the Amiga has the ability to print font in a variety of widths.
Outline fonts are made up from matfx matical points which indicate lines a curves Therefore, when they ar enlarged or reduced they maintain the|* shape, unlike bitmap fonts which becom blocky and unreadable.
Certain text formatting commands to the you are currently editing. In order to invol formatting option from the menu all need to do is to select it.
A tick indicates that the option has be selected. To de-select it simply select 1 option once more and the tick will removed.
The Project menu features certain optia that all users of the Personal Fonts Mai should be familiar with.
The reference character set display alongside the Default gadget can be edit via the Edit Character Set. This option effl tively dumps the reference set into the ec ing buffer so that it can be altered in i same way you would edit any other fa The character set can be saved to repla the one that is loaded by the program.
The Printer test option allows you select from four accompanying optia which act as a printer test so that you 9 your font in action. You can choose to p( out a Character or an entire Font.

Thanks to Bam Yee. Tree is now available for the Amiga in the form of Dtree. To use Dtree users should either boot from their Workbench disk or hard drive. When Workbench has loaded, insert the CoverDisk containing the Dtree program.
Open up the Dtree drawer and double-click on the InstallDTree icon.
Follow the instructions in the installer to get Dtree up and running.

Simply click on the one you want the font size and printer output settings are the printer FFDL sequences. The FFDL sequences specify which characters in the font are On. Off and how they should be interpreted by the printer.
Some example FFDL sequences are given in the PFM.man document on the Personal Fonts Manager disk. You can always test the FFDL settings by running the Printer Test options in the Project menu.
When the font and FFDL settings are correct you can then go about downloading the font. Selecting Write Font Data from the Project menu, you can either send the font directly to the printer or to a file.
If you write the font to a file you can send the data at a later date. Simply double click on the file's icon and it will automatically call the PrintRawFiles program from the PFMjools drawer which will download the font. Don't worry about inspiration as Personal Fonts Maker includes a grand selection of PFM fonts ready for you to use.
Tree [path] eg: tree There are a variety of commands that can be used with Dtree in order for it to display the information you desire.

Computing COVERDISK I Spooler Author: J Vande Ginste Not
Workbench 1.3 Print spoolers have always been a favourite on
the Amiga but it seems that the PrintManager2.0 program given
away on the January 93 issue of AC has been causing quite a
few problems.
Take away those printing blues with this superb print spooler utility Fortunately, we have totally new spooler Workbench Screen M |il| SpooterList hi I nttitl uit | at I ?
Stale [Hlf I I File program that is far easier to use than PrintManager2.0. Spooler allows you to print text files in the background so that printing doesn't interfere with whatever you’re doing at the time.
Spooler features a very user-friendly interface from which you can monitor the progress of your printing and view any other text files that have been stacked.
To use Spooler users should either boot from their Workbench disk or hard drive.
When Workbench has loaded insert the CoverDisk containing the Spooler program.
Open up the Spooler drawer and double click on the InstallSpooler icon. Follow the instructions in the installer to get Spooler up and running. The installer will create a directory in RAM called Spool and assign SPOOL to it.
It will then ask you if you want to add Spooler to your User-Startup file located in the S directory, This will add the following commands: ¦akedir rj»:spool assign SPOOL: rairspool run HL: c:spooler PIT: If you copied Spooler to a directory other than C change the last line to reflect your new path.
In order to use Spooler all you need do is save or copy your text files into the SPOOL directory. Spooler will pick up anything that goes to the SPOOL directory and churn it out to the pnnter.
As an example, let’s imagine you have a text file called AboutMe in a drawer called TEXT on the Workbench and you want to copy it to Spooler. You would type: copy SYJ:TEtT »bflJtlt« to SPOOL: As soon as the file is copied into SPOOL Spooler would pick it up and inform you in its window that it is being printed. If there are other text files already in SPOOL then the new one will be stacked above them. When a file is printed it is erased from the SPOOL directory. Below is a list of those messages and buttons: Idle .Spooler is waiting for a file Printing A file is being output to
the printer. The name of the file is displayed in the File- Display window. Progress is indicated by a horizontal bar Finishing This is the same as pnnting but Spooler will end as soon as the file is printed Halted ...Printing has been stopped Epoch dlaster U1.1 a I E HKiy-twHawsTttittetm FteMtM Gtoal Searth I indexed Search, fraraar*Vyson 11., 8J Fhtchardt?94. 1 J*L Man Cftom.

Set the date manually by clicking on the button next to the System Date button. Enter the date in the form dd mm yyyy and hit Return. The calendar will change to reflect your choice. Clicking on System Date will return the calendar to the present date.
Once you have selected a date you can assign information to it in the diary. In order to enter data all you need to do is click in the diary window and type.
You also have a further five fields to the left of the diary window where you can specify a start and finish time, an occasion, a category and a location. If that's not enough you can enter up to 500 lines of Author: J Pritchard Not Workbench 1.3 Almost all Amiga owners have a database, calendar and address book, but wouldn't it be useful if all these programs were combined into one application? Epoch Master does just that.
Written in Blitz Basic. Epoch Master features a calendar which runs from the 16th Century to the year 2999. A powerful address and phone book, and a totally programmable sub-database system.
After de-archiving the program and re-booting your Amiga with the Epoch Master disk in drive DFO, simply click on the Epoch Master icon to load the application.
Don't worry too much at the seemingly complex interface because it has been designed with ease- of-use in mind and looks can be deceiving.
When you first boot up you will be presented with the calendar interface. If you have a clock on board the calendar date will be set to this time.
There are four main sections to the calendar: The main window which displays the days of the week with the corresponding date below; to the right, the date selection window which allows you to select any year, month and day within Epoch's range: the calendar diary at the bottom where you can enter specific notes for a specific day; and to the far left, running from top to bottom the main control panel.
Along the top of the screen, just below the title bar are four buttons which make up the diary's main search and delete functions. When you press the right mouse button the main control menu is displayed which allows you to control the program and create new Epoch files.

To select a date, simply use the date selection buttons on the right. The buttons indicate the days, months and years. You can select a new range by Amiga Computing There are a variety of options open to you when Spooler is in a certain state.
These are: Idle FF Sends a FormFeed to the printer Printing Halt .....Stop when the current file has been printed Go Continuing printing after being halted Skip Stop printing the current file and move onto the next Halted When Spooler is in the Halt mode you can select a new file from the SpoolerList window.

To save, load or create a new calendar you need to press the right mouse button to bnng up the main options menu and select Project. You can quit out of any menus by selecting the Q button in the top-left corner.
To enter the address and phone book section simply click on the Address Book button to the far left of the calendar screen. You will be presented with the main address and phone book window with the current page number and the total number of pages used at the top of the screen.

As with the calendar, the right mouse button brings up the main menu. From here you can load, save or create a new address and phone- book file and perform various search functions. The first column of buttons in the main display are used for cross referencing searches.

When the application has been dearchived you will be told where the dearchived files are. Click once again on Proceed to finish.
If at any time you are unsure as to whether you want to continue installing you can click on the Abort Install button.

the W part of many in the Amiga industry, coupled to a deep
recession and Commodore’s recent financial crisis, may have
led some of our readers to believe that the Amiga's future is
nothing but bleak.
The facts as we see them today paint a very (Afferent picture. The sue* | cess of the A1200. And CD32’s capture of the
* biggest slice of the fledg- ng CD-ROM market, look set to give
Commodore a sta- | Die base from which to develop I :ne Amiga
into the late 90s.
"Where do we go from here?” is still the most pressing question on most users' lips, however, and in an attempt to gauge the mood and direction of the industry we set out to ask a number of ndustry insiders to give us their view of the Amiga and its future.
The first and most cheering impression is the gn degree of optimism present among those
• c make their living from the machine, espite the short-sighted
view taken by some US companies, many of whom never appreciated
the importance of European market, most UK firms Ljpproached
had adopted a positive c took.
Recent figures showing the Amiga as j a strong front-runner in the games market have helped boost things further, and general confidence seems to be f On an upward trend.
Despite the recession, intense campetitian. And Commodore's Financial moes. The Hmiga is still Britain’s most popular home computer bn a long wag.
Steuie hennedg looks at where the Hmiga ran go From here and haw Commodore are Fighting bark From the brink ACS have therefore felt more frustration than most at Commodore's lack of marketing momentum.
I asked the same questions as those I put to Rue Stanley, and his answers , offer an interesting contrast to the view from the • middle of the market.
Amiga [entre Scotland Martin Lowe and ACS have for years been involved at the high-end of the Amiga market in broadcast TV and video, developing the Harlequin 32-bit card for that purpose and distributing a range of graphics packages, video add-ons. And other professional products.
As a specialist organisation servicing what for the Amiga is still a relatively small market Ideridian Distribution Now Britain’s biggest importer of Amiga software. Meridian Distribution sell almost everything from basic paint programs to high-end music and graphics packages, and are therefore in a good position to cast a weather eye over the market as a whole.
I spoke to Meridian's Rue Stanley, whose disposition remains staunchly cheerful at all times, and asked her how things were compared to the good old A500 boom days.
Compared to the boom period ol the A500's heyday, how healthy would you say today's market Is?
The Amiga market is very healthy. In fact, in the years that we have been selling software our business has doubled.
In which areas do you feel that the Amiga Is currently strongest and weakest?
I consider the main strengths of the Amiga to be in the video market for titling, animation, home office use. DTP. And so on. Networking and business applications are the least exploited areas.
How confident do you feel about the market for the next two years?
I am very confident about the Amiga and I’m looking forward to introducing many new products.
From tbe horse's mouth The days when approaching Commodore executives and asking them for information was akin to a frontal assault on a machine gun nest are well and truly over, and in today's more enlightened atmosphere it seems that you only have to phone and say hello to be buried in facts and figures.
Commodore (UK) boss David Pleasance has been one of the most open and informative executives since taking over the home computer world's equivalent of the England football managership, and on the subject of the Amiga's future he can be refreshingly forthcoming.
I asked him a range of questions on this and on the state of the market in general, and touched on the painful subject of past mistakes. His answers reflect the growing mood of confidence that the Amiga, having survived a world recession and a few bad patches of its own, is still the number one home computer in Europe.
MISTAKES Starting with past marketing initiatives and the relative failure of the Amiga in some productivity areas, David admitted that Commodore had made mistakes.
"We have never successfully segregated the Amiga range, and the high-end machines have struggled to Shrug off the image that the Amiga is a glorified toy - we were marketing the product entirely wrongly." He told me.
"I believe we are on the verge of successfully doing that for the first time. Macs and Pcs have always offered a complete solution for £6,000 or £7.000 including the extra hardware, whereas we have sold the Amiga 4000 as a standalone product at £2,000.
“The purpose of the A.C.E. initiative (see panel) is to gather all our third-party hardware and software expertise under one umbrella for the first time.
Can you provide a rough guide to the rise and fall in sales since 1990. And which types of hardware and software have fared well or badly?
The software products that have fared particularly well are graphics packages, word processors. DTP. Animation, and programming tools.
How well would you say the new Amigas are doing? Do you look forward to the AAA machines, and is new technology strengthening the market or confusing it?
I think that the new Amigas are doing very well, and we are looking forward to the new machines. I believe that technology strengthens the market and gives it a chance to grow.
What can Commodore do to improve your confidence in the Amiga?
They need to shout louder about how great they are. Multimedia is the latest buzzword in the PC market. The Amiga has had brilliant multimedia capabilities for years, but general awareness of this is still too low in the computer market place.
“As we start marketing this concept we should be taken much more seriously, We will have five or six j
A. C.E. centres within three months, which is part of a master
plan we've been working on for some time."
With the high-end and future developments in mind. I asked David when the AAA chip set would be available and what the next range of Amigas would look like.
There have, for instance, been rumours that AAA was being dropped.
"Absolutely not. AAA is integral to our future. We lost a couple of good engineers which set us back a bit. But the first AAA machine should now be released in the Spring of 1995."
And are Commodore still taking the Rise route?
“Yes. We are taking a Rise core and adding a 3D Amiga Computing FEATURE li- there's a ‘feel good' factor in the air uihirh mas absent before tbe fills launch Commodore'* 64- bit Rise processor should be at least as powerful as the 66MHz Motorola PowerPC chip 3DQ has been an absolute flop in the States, and Jaguar is seeing a low level of support because developers aren’t keen on a new cartridge-based system, so our only real competitor is CD-i."
This reflects the comforting thought that the Amiga has already proved itself a tough street fighter by pushing the ST into an early grave and leaving no room for the ill-fated Falcon, so with the PC still a more expensive option there is precious little other competition.
So long as there is a market for a quality inexpensive home computer, the Amiga should sell well. But exactly how well is it selling?
“We’re not releasing exact figures because we want to keep our marketing information to ourselves for the time being," David replied guardedly, “but I can tell you we have 98 per cent of the home computer market under the £500 mark. The March 1994 Which? Magazine votes the A1200 best all-round home computer in that price band."
And will the A1200 continue in its present form or will we see upgrades?
“Probably the biggest mistake we made was the quick jump from A500 to A500 Plus then A600, which confused a lot of people. We won’t be doing that again, but developments from the new high-end Amigas will migrate downwards to the home machines over time.
Any new machine with better specifications will be priced above the A1200."
Rendering engine surrounded by the AAA chip set. This allows complete compatibili* ty with Windows NT and the existing Amiga.
Will you be using the Motorola PowerPC chip?
‘No. We are developing our own chip in allegiance with a couple of well-known companies (David refused to be drawn on their exact identities) and we should have a high-end graphics workstation which is far ahead of the present A4000 in terms of power."
So what about the home market and the machines on which Commodore is building its future? Was he happy with the sales of A1200 and CD32 machines?
“We’re extremely happy with the A1200, which has surpassed all crur expectations despite the fact that we’ve never advertised it. With the low price and the bundles we've produced, it is selling all year round rather than just at Christmas.
“CD32 is disappointing because the console market has been down on predictions. Sega and others are about 40 per cent down as far as we can tell, but we’re encouraged that we have the lion’s share of the CD market (44 per cent according to Gallup).
Basically, we’ve proven the cynics wrong.- And you're confident that you can retain your market share?
"We're in pole position for an excellent Christmas.
In which areas do you feel that the Amiga is fc currently strongest and weakest?
It is strongest in games and the home computer area, but weakest in professional broadcast videographics, and commercial and educational multimedia.
Can you provide a rough guide to the rise and fall in sales since 1990, and which types of hardware and software have fared well or badly?
We're only involved in the area of graphics In which directions do you predict that the market will move?
Towards the total integration of TV, video, audio, and computers.
How confident do you feel about the market for the next two years?
Not very, unless Commodore is radically changed.
Of the A500's heyday, how healthy would you say today 's market is?
Rather precarious.
How well would you say the new Amigas are doing? Do you look forward to the AAA machines, and is new technology strengthening the market or confusing it?
The A4000 is a great machine technically, but crippled by a marketing and pricing policy which means no professional dealer would touch it with a barge-pole.
Again, the technology of the AAA chips is very exciting, but Commodore engineering don't have the resources to develop it property. New technology is essential for the survival of the Amiga.
What can Commodore do to improve your confidence in the Amiga?
Commodore UK needs strategic thinking and planning rather than quarterly sales targets.
It needs marketing expertise covering both the professional and the consumer markets;.
To recruit a base of professional dealers; to support proven quality products and dealers rather than hare-brained schemes and vapourware; to encourage third party developers; to price the Amiga sensibly; and to tell the public, dealers, and developers what they are doing.
And video, but this has done reasonably well despite lack of interest and support from Commodore UK.
The Amiga Centre of Excellence initiative, Commodore's latest attempt to promote the Amiga as a serious tool, is possibly their only concerted effort so far to bring together the best third-party software and hardware together under one umbrella and give the Amiga a chance to show itself off at its best.
In the past, prospective end users have had to rely on magazines for second-hand information, or computer shows for brief first-hand glimpses of equipment which is usually scattered across several stands in a large hall.
The first A.C.E. site to get off the ground is based in Pentrefoelas, north Wales, and should hopefully be followed by several others over the next few months.
Situated in a large renovated stable block, part of an award winning village regeneration project, the centre offers a stark technological contrast to the surrounding Welsh countryside.
I put it to Peter Simunovic, the centre's Croatian-bom managing director, that he was a little off the beaten track.
“Not at all. Because of the M56 and A55, we’re less than two hours from Manchester airport, which is the same time it takes to get from Gatwick or Heathrow to the centre of London.
We don’t have many traffic jams around here."
And did he predict success in luring clients out of London into the wilds of Clywd?
“Certainly. I completed a major multimedia project with the North Wales Tourist Board before we opened here, and we're talking to other Welsh organisations and the Scottish Tourist Board.
What A.C.E. also offers, I soon discovered, is a wealth of the best Amiga hardware and soft- ware around. A4000s and A3000s packed with everything from the new Mo-Miga 1.2 gigabyte optical drive, to Vlab digitisers and GVP IV24 cards bedecked the main demo room as interested locals watched the cream of Amiga equipment put through its paces.
Probably the most heartening aspect of this sort of collection is that there was hardly a question one could imagine remaining unanswered by at least one of the expanded Amigas being displayed.
One person walked home with a colour print of herself thanks to a Sony camcorder, Vlab, and the Primera pnnter, while others explored the London underground system using Mick Tinker’s superb CD32-based touchscreen information program. As the A.C.E. programme gathers steam, and further centres open in other areas of the country, we should see a general improvement in the Amiga's productivity image.
IIII. In the hole Amiga Computing FEATURE Hi Bedford-based Power
Computing have been working in the Amiga market for over
five years, developing their own range of hard drive.
RAM. And scanner peripherals, and distributing a range of
productivity add-ons covering everything from the low end
of the spectrum to expensive A4 flatbed scanners and laser
printers.
They are smack bang in the middle of the market and in an ideal position to judge the way in which the Amiga is developing, so I asked Power’s capo di capi, Tony laniri. Not generally known for his reticence. To answer the same seven questions put to Martin Lowe and Rue Stanley.
Compared to the boom period of the A500's heyday, how healthy would you say today's market is?
Very healthy. The release of the A1200 4000 poured new life into the Amiga and it hasn’t looked back since.
In which areas do you feel that the Amiga is currently strongest and weakest?
The problem is that very few people take it seriously. Commodore are now actively trying to enhance the Amiga’s reputation and push it further into the serious market. The games image is left over from A500 days and is very difficult to shake off.
The strongest area has to be graphics and video applications. Where else can you get a full 24-bit card for less than £300? Multimedia packages such as Scala are virtually unequalled, Mpeg boards are now available, and FMV on the CD32 gives incredible scope for software.
How confident do you feel about the market for the next two years?
Confidence at Power has never been higher. We will continue to develop for the Amiga, and the release of the AAA Rise-based. NT-compatible machines next year gives plenty of scope for the next few years. Also, Commodore are restructuring and David Pleasance is doing an excellent job.
In which directions do you predict that the market will move?
We believe the games market will move towards your massive graphics adventure game that oozes realism. The professional side of the market will move even further towards graphics and video applications.
Can you provide a rough guide to the rise and fall In sales since 1990, and which types of hardware and software have fared well or badly?
We've always had steady sales and Still sell as much now as in the A500 boom days. How well would you say the new Amigas are doing? Do you look forward to the AAA machines, and is new technology strengthening the market or confusing it?
The A1200 is a success story. For your money you get a fantastic all-round machine, and the A4000, though too expensive for most pockets, is a mean machine.
CD32 is selling well, even with the lack of any real CD games (most are just updated A1200 games), and the launch of FMV opens up new avenues for pop music and videos. Any new technology such as AAA will certainly strengthen the Amiga's position.
What can Commodore do to improve your confidence in the Amiga?
Had you asked this question six months ago. I would have said “take the Amiga seriously", but now I'm pleased to say that Commodore are actively pushing the Amiga into the serious market place and concentrating on multimedia where the Amiga excels.
The serious market. The result was the first of a series of regular seminars, held at King’s College, London, on March 14, which was attended by leading developers Ule haue stmg- gled to shrug ul the image that the Rmiga is a glorified too - me mere marketing the pmduct entire luronglo David Pfeasaxe, up, CBM (UK) Amiga Computing MAY 1 994 Andy Bishop and Andy Gould are the men behind Premier Vision, a company special- ising in multimedia, music, and graphics applications, selling projects to companies such as Granada Television and British Gas.
Recently, however, the two Andies decided to make their own move alongside the
A. C.E. initiative to give the Amiga a boost in “Probably the
biggest mistake me made was the Quick jump from U5DD to H500
Plus then H600.
Which confused a lot of people."
In the Amiga industry and a gaggle of interested video experts from, among others, the BBC and ITV.
They were treated to a display of high- end Amiga video and multimedia technology including Hellfrich International's new FEATURE Professional, Zen technology’s broadcast- standard character generator, and Scala MM30Q.
Peggy Plus Mpeg card and a new Jpeg digital video card, DPS's stunning Personal Animation Recorder, the Mo-Miga
1. 2Gb (yes, gigabyte) optical drive, Sunrize’s AD516 sound
card, Bars & Pipes The effect was impressive, and the movement
towards this sort of non-partisan seminar approach, where
products are allowed to speak eloquently for themselves before
a live audience, Should see a great improvement in the Amiga's
high-end profile. Judging from the many searching ques
tions asked by the video professionals in the crowd, interest
levels were certainly high enough to hail the idea as a great
success.
As Mr Bishop put it: “If we don’t do this sort of thing, who will?" Z57 As the Amiga still holds 50 per cent of the games market, and has a headstart ? In CD-ROM with CD32, the machine’s leisure talents seem set to carry on
- , delighting new owners for some time J to come.
Worries over the US and
* European markets aside, the Amiga has a firm hold in the UK,
and Commodore's better late than never awakening towards
promoting the Amiga in video and multimedia should reap some
sort of reward sooner or later.
IMPROVEMENT It is too soon to say whether Commodore’s long neglect of the machine's high-end potential has caused too much damage for A.C.E. or companies such as Premier Vision to overcome. But since the Commodore PC range was dropped and the Amiga concentrated on as the company’s only hope of survival, we have seen a huge improvement in both effort and attitude.
Christmas 1994 will be the testing time. If CD32 scores a big success as Commodore predict, and the A1200 continues to sell strongly, neither of which seem unreasonable hopes, Commodore UK at least should finish the year on much firmer ground than they started it.
However, further efforts in marketing and promotion are required to make up the ground lost during the A500 boom when a blinkered management sat back on what proved to be mercurial laurels.

shifts towards the fO. Simon flays fast forwards to a future
where we could be using little shiny discs for euerything from
games to mouies and music remain exclusive to the system it
was for.
Technics have already unveiled three prototype Video CD players at the Consumer Electronics Show held in Las Vegas last January: a mini system with a built-in player, Since Commodore released its Full Motion Video cartridge, a new world of opportunities has opened up. Digital technology has spawned completely revolutionary forms of entertainment.
Hollywood has just opened its eyes to its new toy and many of the major studios are becoming actively involved in interactive movies.
Now, movie tie-ins really are becoming movie tie-ins. Not only are games including footage from movies, but actors are actually filming extra footage for specific inclusion in games.
Sylvester Stallone has already been filmed against a blue screen for Virgin's conversion of Demolition Man.
Lawnmower Man 2 is being developed simultaneously with the computer game licence and incorporates some of the comput- ecently there's been a great deal of ' -A confusion at the very mention of Lf FMV. At first it sounds like a hype method to kick-start the sales of CD driven consoles, but on closer examination it could to prove one of the most important innovations for a long while.
Many of you will remember the battle of the video formats at the turn of the 80s. A war that saw young systems like Betamax and Philips 2000 go to early celluloid graves.
Not wishing to repeat such corporate genocide, many of the leading lights of the electrical world have come together to agree a standard format to which they can all comply.
Although Philips were the first company to produce a commercially available system, they too have adjusted their machines to comply with this new standard.
This means that whether you’re using a CD32, Cdi, 3DQ or a PC with a CD-ROM drive you’ll be able to enjoy any Video CD title.
However, it should be noted that the Video CD standard only applies to linear riOri-inter- active software. Games software will still Amiga Computing MAY 1994 a portable player with a flip-up LCD screen and a five-disc multi-player.
As a response to these activities the music industry have announced that they will be adopting the system. Picture Music International (part of EMI) have announced their first batch of releases.
The straight reissues are Queen’s Box of Flix (three discs); David Bowie's The Video collection; and Pink Floyd’s Delicate Sound of Thunder.
Updated titles will see Tina Turner, Iron Maiden and the Pet Shop Boys all undergoing some minor surgery (not before time) before going on sale.
BMG. Who fall under RCA’s massive corporate umbrella, also plan to release a number of titles. Although Eurythmics is the only confirmed release, at least another three are promised.
Meanwhile. CD32-compatible products from Philips are reaching the shops. Priced at around £16. Their current releases include the movies Patriot Games. Black Rain. Top Gun.
Star Trek VI. Naked Gun 2'A. With Ghost.
Fatal Attraction and Hunt for Red October in line for an April release date.
With a million systems expected to be in the home by the end of 1994, even computer Interactiue software Seventh Quoet er-generated VR film. However, American companies Media Vision and Hyperbole Studies have taken a joint decision to push the cinema doors a little further open with virtual Cinema.
“The synthesis of the film and the novel*, Virtual Cinema is a software engine which places the user in a 360 degree environ* ment with access to the personal thoughts of the characters involved. Using live actors, this interactive software asks you to explore a 3D world, interact on a social level with the characsoftware houses are keen to get into trie act.
It's rumoured that at least 14 of the Manga titles have been signed up. Including Akira.
Fist of the Northstar and the Dominion series.
While things are being kept tightly under wraps, an industry insider had this to say: “We think that the format will attract new users, and one way of attracting them to buying an FMV module for their CD32’s is by releasing a range of animated films."’ BMG and PMI's Video CD's music titles are being produced by Omnimedia, a company who are more just a little familiar with CD- driven multimedia software.
Not only have they been responsible for British Airways interactive CD training manual. But are now gearing themselves towards releasing titles of their own.
First off the production line will be an interactive novel for children. Treasure Hunt, by A J Wood, contains many different aspects of FMV technology. Omnimedia's Artistic Director, Yvonne Cavalier, revealed more: “Treasure Hunt’s an interactive book, it's a bit of everything. It'll use a blend of traditional animation in conjunction with original illustrations.
“You basically follow a fairly linear storyline, until you reach a still screen. This will ask you to solve some puzzles which will help reveal the location of the treasure.” Stolen, And out on FMV A sequel, which works on the same premise, has already started production, and another educational disc called Toy Shop based on the National Curriculum is due for release priced at around the £25. Ajf ters. And study their personalities and thoughts. The first interactive movie for a home machine will be the Hitchcockian thriller Voyeur on the Philips Cdi. Starring Robert Culp and Grace
Zabriskie. Voyeur gives 65 minutes of live action footage using some 47,000 frames of broadcast quality video.
Some of the biggest names in the movie industry are becoming excited at the potential FMV gives. Syd Mead of Blade Runner fame is working on a title called Cyberrace, and even Steven Spielberg is now involved on a project called The Dig.
Virgin will have the first games to utilise FMV to the full. 7th Guest thrilled PC owners with its graphics long before live footage was added for the up and coming Cdi version, and Conspiracy will see Donald Sutherland make his debut in the silicon cinema.
At present, product available for the CD32 is very scarce.
But, with the attention the music and movie industries are taking in the 12cm disc, it’s quite obvious that CD technology with its massive storage capabilities, isn't a passing phase and is indeed the next celluloid step forward.
What is FHIU?
Full Motion Video is made possible through the miracle of Mpeg (Moving Picture Expert's Group). This acronym threw together experts from every industry who felt the desire to create a video reduction system.
Motion The committee was over 200 strong and took just 18 months to devise an internationally agreed standard.
The beauty of digital video is that it manages to turn film into a digital signal, while throwing away 99 per cent of that signal and still producing a picture quality that can rival the best VHS can ever achieve.
When you process film into digital video, you transfer the image into a torrent of electronic computer bits (ones and 2eros) that cascade out at a rate of 160 million a second.
To transfer this information to CD means vastly reducing the amount of bits that the system processes down to a more manageable 1.2 million per second - the rate that CD reads digital audio.
However, Mpeg isn't just one process. It is in fact several techniques strung together which acheives the enormous 99 per cent reduction.
The first act is to transfer each frame of the film onto a broadcast-quality Digital Video Recorder, to do this means running the film through a special projector with a built-in camera.
Now in tape form, the information is fed into the Mpeg encoder which is an extremely high powered computer equipped with some extra image grabbing hardware. The computer firstly shrinks the images from broadcast quality down to a more basic quality, somewhere around S- VHS level. This reduces the bulk of the code (around 80 per cent) but still leaves you with an image that looks good on a TV.
REPLICATED Next the computer images are processed into two entirely different ways, First each picture is looked at as though it were a single image, then each is broken down into a pixel image.
It’s at this point that the Mpeg system really begins to come into its own. Normally a computer would write down the position of every dot in each still. Mpeg looks at the differences between pixels and removes replicated pixels.
For example, if a frame contains a picture of a red car. And part of that red car consists of exactly the same pixels. Then the system recognises that they are the same and only needs to keep one copy of this, On a greater scale, the same technique can be implemented on a frame-by-frame basis. The system is geared to compare areas within frames and recognise repeated pixels.
Mpeg works meticulously until there is high detail and a great deal of rapid movement. This is where the film companies have had to compromise and learn to hide errors.
For instance, when the first clips of Top Gun were released they were pretty appalling. Now.
The film companies seem to be getting the hang of it, and the production quality exceeds VHS and is moving towards LaserDisc standards.

* -£C o Wordworth VE*|°N ooooo Digita’s Wordworth 3 claims to-
be the number one Umiga word processor, and has a hatful of
neui features to reinforce the argument.
Steuie Hennedg places it under scrutiny ince the release of Wordworth 2.
The Amiga word processor market has been moving forward at a fair old pace, and competition from Softwood s Final Copy and Final Writer packages has made the tussle for top spot an entertaining spectator sport.
? O In response to Final Writer, version two of which we’ll be examining next month.
Digita have come up with Wordworth 3 and a host of new design and layout features.
Always quite strong on the pure word- crunching front, Wordworth has in the past suffered by comparison to Softwood's packages in the design and graphics fronts.
Lack of integral drawing functions and a general sluggishness when handling any graphics containing more than 16 colours severely restricted the program's use as a DTP or layout tool, and most of the new features found In v3 have been targeted at this weakness. • As a package, the new box contains a bonus set of official Agfa Intellifonts, 50 in all. And Digita's version of Wolf Faust's Print Manager program, which you may remember seeing in its shareware clothes on a recent AC CoverDisk.
This easy-to-use print spooler coupled to a respectable list of high quality fonts makes for a solid and useful freebie, and compares well to the extras offered by other packages.
The program uses Commodore's installer and continues to offer floppy disk installation, though using such a complex package from floppies could lead to marital break- fls a bonus, those with jt ii mil ran haus the tent start m one lolour anil gradually change to another for a gradient effect downs or worse. As an aid to those stuck with floppies or who have precious little hard drive space, minimum and custom configurations are also offered.
Custom installation is the most useful of the two. And allows the user to specify which loader and saver modules will be installed. For example, if you had no plans to use the TrueType font format, a mainly Mac and PC format which Wordworth 3 now supports, you needn't install the filter which enables the program to read these fonts.
MODULES By carefully selecting which document, font, and graphic import modules to install, it is possible to save quite a bit of space, though minimum installation is probably still best for those restricted to floppy drives.
If fully installed, be prepared to see Wordworth 3 gobble up about 3Mb of hard drive space, and another 4Mb if all 50 Intellifonts are copied to hard drive.
Once installed and the program has been serialised, one’s first sight of the new screen layout can come with a hint of ddjd vu. So similar does it appear to Final Writer.
A bank of colourful and very neatly drawn buttons down the left-hand side of the screen and the new ruler with tools for font, justification, and text styles gives Wordworth 3 a very snazzy modern look.
Pages are represented, complete with drop shadow, as sheets on a larger desktop, across which the user can scroll if a document has more than one page.
Documents can be set up so that pages appear sequentially one below the other in the usual style, or four across to accommodate double-sided pages and brochure or magazine-style layout.
When four across is the chosen display method, jumping from one page to the other can be achieved by using the scroll bars to move left and right, a method which is very useful when editing a double page spread, though not nearly as useful as the excellent variable zoom.
This new feature offers a number of viewing magnifications, from 25 to 400 per cent, with every setting in between at the user’s discretion. In other words, no matter which font, screen mode, or page Size is used, there is always a view magnification which fits the document being edited, and this is a great improvement over Wordworth 2. Another very useful tweak is the removal of the text style (bold, italic.
Amiga Computing 46 MAY 1 994 underline) and justification commands from the left edge to the top ruler bar where they can be found on most modem packages.
They are joined there by an all-new pair Of drop down menus for font and font size, which make choosing a font much easier and quicker than before.
Drop down menus (or lists) are an allround and consistent design approach for Wordworth 3, and can be found wherever there is a choice of more than one item from a requester or gadget, but the font selection list is easily the most useful application of the lot.
Rather than use a separate requester to feature. Creating an object can be accomplished either by using the Object menu or summoning the floating object tool box by clicking on the appropriate button from the button strip. Choosing the text frame icon and dragging a box out on screen places a blank box of any size anywhere on-screen.
A huge advantage with the Wordworth 3 text frames is that they can contain any number of lines of text, so proper headline- style boxes are possible, unlike the more restrictive Final Writer text frames.
In addition, each frame can have multiple columns and any fill, border, and font styles available to normal text on the page, so that uour ear a complete document can be built out of them. This flexibility puts Wordworth 3 firmly into the DTP arena, and though it's still not up to the likes of PageSetter 3. There isn’t enough difference when creating most documents to warrant the user owning both packages. For a great many simple and some not-so-simple document types, Wordworth 3 would be perfectly adequate.
Also brand new is the extensive text effects option, capable of some weird results which may or may not be useful depending on just how wacky your page layout requirements are. In a similar manner to text frames, text effects are added as Objects and have their own requester which controls the final effect.
When the frame is first placed, a quick double click reveals the requester, into which the user types the text to which an effect is to be applied, then selects from one of five effects, line, circle, arc. Spiral in, and spiral out. A selection of presets is available for quick formatting, but there’s plenty of scope for experimentation.
All effects frames can be rotated to the make a time-consuming search through your fonts, all those that Wordworth 3 will use can be found in the drop down list, from where a new font is easily selected.
The new design and drawing tools are many and varied, some more useful than others, but all are welcome additions to a modern word processor. They are grouped loosely under the title of Objects, including all structured drawing tools, text effects, and tables. Of most use in page layout and as an aid to design, though, is the new text frame exact angle of the user's choosing, and shadows can be added with their offsets also controlled to the last millimetre.
As a bonus, those with colour output in mind can have the text start in one colour and gradually change to another for a gradient effect, and if this isn't enough, the individual letters can be set at a specific rotation from the baseline.
Though just a little bit dinky and of limited use in most documents, the text effect feature is very handy when creating a letterhead, fax header, or other layout in which a logo of some sort is required. Even if not used, it is great fun to play around with.
TABLES The last new feature available as an object is the table generator, with which users can quickly create a simple table of a user-defined number of columns and rows.
Again, there is a dedicated requester for the table feature, controlling fill colour, text flow around the table, and colour and weight of the lines used to draw it.
No settings are offered for a table heading. Caption, or other advanced features, but though fairly basic there is no doubt that many users would find automatic table generation a real boon, The ability to format any text within the table's boxes, and shrink, expand, or remove any of the rows and columns offers a certain amount of control over design, so Final Writer is the obvious comparison for Wordworth 3, and many of the improvements in this release seem to have been prompted by Softwood s flagship word processor.
It is difficult at the moment to judge which is the better product, as Final Writer 2 is being released as this review goes to the press - look out for the full review next month - but it is safe to say that Wordworth 3 has a definite lead over the first version of its main rival.
Some of Final Writer's features remain unbeaten, particularly its more flexible implementation of the button bar idea, its style tags, and its faster graphics handling, but as Wordworth now incorporates good word crunching with powerful design features, it has leapfrogged back into the lead.
Plashbath!
Amiga Computing there's enough to make the feature very worthwhile in reports and other documents where data is to be presented.
To aid those typing raw data into a document. There is a simple calculate function, new to the tools menu, which will calculate the total, maximum, minimum, or average values for any row or column of figures in a table.
Alas, there's still no graph or pie chart generator such as found in. Say. Word for Windows, but this PC monolith costs £400 or more, so who's complaining?
One final group of features new to objects are those relating to grouping and SO on. Any object, be it a simple line or an imported IFF, can be grouped with others, then moved around together. Objects can also be moved forwards and backwards to achieve layering effects, and any object or group can be copied to every page in a document, making the duplication of a company logo very easy indeed.
CRAFTED Locking objects is also catered for, an underrated feature which can save a lot of hassle. When happy with the placement of an object, the user can lock it in place, making it impossible to upset a carefully crafted layout or move a large picture and incur a time penalty while the screen updates.
As all imported pictures can be previewed in full colour or as crossed out box, users can elect to turn off large images to save time, giving Wordworth 3 all the advantages previously only enjoyed by Final Writer.
Though the new objects features have attracted a lot of attention, they are not the most important from a word processing point of view, and the many improvements and tweaks found in Wordworth 3’s more sober areas are every bit as welcome and.
In some cases, more useful.
The find and replace routine, for example, now offers users the ability to look for paragraph breaks and tabs, hard spaces.
Host useful of though, is ttie template option, uihiih is much the some as Final lllfita's master page appfoech.
The user can sane a document as a template to lie used as a blank uiheneuer a neui document of that I kind is created page numbers, and has a wildcard option which makes global search and replace a far more powerful tool when working with large documents.
Writers who work with both Pcs and Amigas will tell you that nitty-gritty differences such as this can be the difference between one WP and another.
A new font requester which offers better control over text is also a welcome addition.
From the same window, users can now select a font, change its tracking (space between letters), select superscript or subscript. And elect to use design or text kerning.
KERNED The former is used for larger font sizes where letters have to be kerned (roughly equivalent to how much they are “fitted") closer together to avoid, for example, a headline looking too spaced out or becoming too wide.
Most useful of all, though, is the template option, which is much the same as Final Writer's master page approach. By creating a basic layout including a letterhead or template to be used as a “blank" whenever a new document of that kind is created.
Fax sheets are a good example of this kind of template, but invoices, letters and other often used formats benefit equally from the use of templates.
As objects which have been carefully created can't actually be saved out (though they can be cut and pasted between documents), the template is the only way to quickly recreate a useful layout.
On balance, the bugs aside (and we can only hope these are quickly dealt with by the dispatching of a patch disk to registered users). Wordworth 3 is a worthy reply to the challenge of Final Writer, Though still slow at times, its speed when using graphics has been markedly improved, and a long list of new or improved features has removed many of the deficiencies suffered by its predecessor.

Macros To be fair, it isn’t that ADPro doesn't support multi-processing, it’s just that to fulfil its potential required a fairly in-depth understanding of Arexx. In the past ASDG naively felt that the user base, inspired by the software, would devote time and effort into Arexx and in turn ADPro.
However as they soon discovered, graphics enthusiasts are artists by nature and have neither the time nor the inclination to master a programming language.
And to be honest, when you pay so much for pro image processing software, automation should be guaranteed and not left in the hands of a user who wants results, not programming lessons.
As a result. ASDG fought back with the release of FRED, a program which heralded the effort for improved multi-processing.
Although a big improvement, it was mainly useful as a off-line sequence generator and image compositor - ideal for those lucky Uideo software can be highly romplen, but with macros it is possible to simplify things -at a cost. Paul Hustin discouers how HOPro and IhorphPlus approach one-key for the k© desktop uideo masses appeared to finally solve the problem of ADPro automation. With the arrival of ProControl, a friendly interface at last appeared to heal the sometimes torturous accord between ADPro and Arexx.
ProControl not only brought unrivalled multi-processing to both ADPro and MorphPlus. But also offered it up within a beautifully clean and concise interface which transformed hours of hard graft in a text editor into a matter of seconds and the occasional mouse click.
EXCITEMENT However, after the initial excitement cooled it soon became clear there were still a few areas that could benefit from a slightly ProControl still required a high degree of user experience when it came to creating special effects, and compositions which evolve over time, As a result, there was still a gap in the market, which has now been filled by Multiframe from Macro Systems - the German manufacturer better known for their hardware exploits such as Vlab. Retina and Toccata.
With the arrival of Multiframe. Macro Systems have taken an impressive first step into software publishing. Like its counterpart, the program provides yet another friendly alternative front-end for the creation of DVEs
- alias digital video effects.
Although this would appear to spell out direct competition, there is a subtle difference between the two packages. Although ProControl is capable of DVE generation, it tends to be much better suited to complex image manipulation using multiple operators in a single pass - which don’t change over tim The reason for this is that ProControl GRAPHICS Ill mm i mim mr K l« HUM (MM (MKIIM KIHIIUIKI Mir mn
• iwuarwi kmi rr M*f Just pick your process and let Multiframe do
the rest Given the assorted swings and roundabouts of both
Multiframe and ProControl it's very difficult to give a
“yes no" decision on which is the best investment. In a perfect
world the ideal solution would be to invest in both programs
and exploit the best elements of each.
For those who have no interest or aptitude when it comes to fine-tuning scripts, Multiframe is probably the ideal choice. It asks very little from the user in exchange for an impressive array of instant DVEs.
On the downside it lacks a lot of flexibility in relation to ProControl. A prime example of this is the need to re-process sequences. Let’s say you needed to crop the image, alter the resolution, turn it into a negative and add a ripple.
You’d require three complete passes over the entire sequence - which on larger projects could take a very long time.
However, if you applied the same changes using ProControl, everything could be done in a single pass, but would require a much more in-depth understanding ol ADPro and the idiosyncrasies of ProControl.
For the pro videographer it's safe to say that Multiframe is just too useful to ignore, while artistic technophobes will find it a breath of fresh air in the sometimes stuffy and complex world of Amiga DVE generation.
Generates the Script as you add the parameters - in effect you still write the script - and as a result multi-processing a single image into a sequence or combining multiple frames with the assistance of an alpha channel still requires an understanding of Arexx and the inner workings of ProContrOl.
MultiFrame, on the other hand, lacks the infinite flexibility of ProControl but does provide a point and dick approach to the generation of DVEs.
Rather than generating the script as you go along, you're provided with selection of pre-written processes to which parameters are added. As a result there's an inevitable trade-off between instant special effects and user control.
As you can see, Multiframe is very graphi- cally-onented with button selections controlling almost the entire process. At the top of the screen you're provided with various options to select your source graphics, add alpha images - if composition is required - and assign the output directory for the end results.
IMPORTANT After selecting your image(s), the first step is to set the number of frames to be generated. Alongside this sits probably the most important button on the screen. This Single or Multiple source toggle allows you to define whether the files are to be generated from one image or an entire sequence.
Obviously if you wish to process an existing multiple frame sequence, the parts must be saved in a background directory and Uerdict numbered accordingly - the same applies for the foregrounds and alpha sequences.
On the other hand, if you wish to generate a DVE sequence from a single source, numbering isn't a problem - just select the file, define a single source, specify the number of frames, and apply the effect with the necessary parameters.
At this point, a sequence will be automatically generated with the effect increasing incrementally over the frames. Wonderful stuff - instant DVEs at the touch of a button.
However. Multiframe doesn’t stop there.
Unlike ProControl. The program also supports spline-based time line control. As a consequence any process can be fine-tuned to speed up and slow down according to a user-defined spline.
To adjust the spline, a simple click on the Path button reveals the spline window with a definable number of Knots and tension controls with which to adjust the curve and subsequently the application of the effect during the sequence or anim.
AUTO-DISPLAY Next up comes the excellent frame buffer screen which allows you to select between the Firecracker, Retina. OpalVision. DCTV or Harlequin as an auto-display device.
By toggling various buttons you can define whether the image should be automatically displayed on the chosen board either before, after, or before and after processing.
Like spline control automatic 24-bit previews are unique to Multrframe and make life
- and early error detection - much easier. Of course, the
requester also offers preview on the Amiga screen - in fact,
both can be used or toggled between as required.
Following the impressive Path and Frame buffer controls come a senes of slightly mundane system options which allow the Specification of defaults such as the program’s temporary store and Rexx directory.
In addition, you’re also supplied with a GPI button which leads to the general purpose interface set-up screen. From here you can control external devices such as single frame controllers, digital recorders and assorted DVE devices with the assistance of an optional hardware add-on.
Apart from the four remaining buttons for the loading and saving of defaults, about information and quitting, that's about it for the initial set-up.
When you've added the necessary information. All that's left is to select the process you require, add the necessary start and finish parameters and initiate the process.
As you can see there's a selection of 54 assorted processes covering a wide variety of effects. However don’t be deceived by the Ripple example - this is the only one which provides a graphic interface on setting up.
All the others simply use start and finish text boxes - all of which require parameters to be typed in.
Due to the need for specific parameters it’s often essential to pop back to ADPro. Fire up the desired operator and experiment with various settings to ascertain the best start and end parameters.
To assist in this, a small flip switch on the main screen allows you to jump between the two programs when necessary. In addition another very useful button allows you to automatically delete the contents of the output directory, either with or without a warning requester.
A particularly pleasant aspect of almost all the available processes is the ability to save parameters, which means you can soon build up a library of effects which can be called upon whenever necessary.

Europa House, Adlington Park, Macclesfield 5K10 4NP Telephone: (1625 859333 Fax: 0625 879962 FEATURE Hi A couple of months back, we reported on the growing trend to import pornographic images of all types into this country over international telephone lines. We also demonstrated both the ease with which it can be done and the variety of images - both static and moving - which can be found.
We explained how children have been caught distributing such material on floppy disks (like the one mounted on the front of this magazine when it was bought), and highlighted the concern over this new and extremely distributable type of pornography, especially considering the ease with which the very young can use computers when compared to many of their parents.
Beuond The article closed by reporting news of proposed forthcoming tightening of legislation to try to curb the phenomenon, although we expressed doubts as to whether telephone lines could, morally or practically, ever be effectively policed.
Since then there have been a number of developments, some frightening, some hopeful. Some curious. Public concern has risen; our original AC article was extensively quoted in the Guardian newspaper, and with television and other major publications currently preparing more coverage of the subject, the publicity shows no signs of abating.
Here, then, is our summary of recent developments, and some further ideas to help push the debate forward.
Omputer pornography. Like multi- media or the computer virus, it’s a phrase conjured up to explain yet another phenomenon of the new computer age, and like multimedia and the computer virus, the majority of the population have nothing but a vague idea as to what it is.
The difference is. Of course, that while technologically obscure jargon is of no real interest to most, a phrase as deviancy-rid- den as computer pornography most certainly is.
And when a recent court case involving the attempted rape of a six-year- old girl by a boy of 13, who had seen computer pornography, hit the headlines, the pressure to do something - or at least to be seen to be doing something - moved up a gear.
On February 9 of this year, a Home Affairs select committee at the Houses of Parliament published a First Report on the subject of computer pornography. It made a number of recommendations, mainly involving clarification of the law in order to encompass the peculiar legal grey area surrounding electronic data.
This is important because while it is easy to prove that, say. A pornographic video is indeed pornography, it’s an altogether harder proposition proving the same thing about a series of electronic bleeps coming down a telephone.
Sir Ivan Lawrence. Conservative chair- fis the Gouernment dithers on the subject of computer pornography, the techno-pornographers continues to outuiit the law. Phil morse returns to the subject he first reported on two months ago to catch up with the latest deuelopments man of the select committee, summed up the dilemma: “There is immense public concern about computer pornography. The technology advances that have been made recently have been moving ahead of the law.'
As the law stands, it is illegal to import pornography into the country in any “tangible" form - which means that if it is sent over a telephone line, it escapes the law's exact wording.
J lli! Current tethnologq make; tlia laui ueru flult to enforre As Labour MP Steve Byers warns: “To take an extreme case, imagine that a perverted teacher called up a number in the Netherlands on the school computer.
“He could have hard-core pornography which it would be illegal to buy in this country transmitted down the line, without breaking the law.’ IMPOSSIBLE Although the Mps who made up the committee acknowledged that it would be impossible to halt the import of pornography in this manner by legislation, they stated that a tightening of the law would nevertheless allow police to prosecute where they did find evidence that the crime had been or was being committed.
It is a view shared by the Crown Prosecution Service, the people who decide whether such cases should ultimately go to court or not, and the Police Federation, representing those who would actually be enforcing the law. But it's a view which the Government seem not to agree with. For merely a day after the real-life child computer pornography story made it into the paper. Home Office minister David Maclean announced that the government would not be changing the law.
In making their decision, the Home Office had no doubt listened to the advice of customs officials, who had warned that monitoring phones for pornography would be controversial and probably ineffective, and discovered some technical legal difficulties of its own to add to the excuses.
So why does the Crown Prosecution Service still insist that, yes. “it would be possible to enact such an offence"? And why does Sergeant John Ashley, whose work in Greater Manchester Police’s Obscene Publications division has made him a national expert on the subject, still urge just such a change in the law?
In short, why, if somewhere, somehow, someone has been caught importing computer pornography over the telephone lines, will the government not change the law to allow them to be prosecuted fully and properly?
The Home Office insists that “the technology makes [the law] very difficult to enforce". Further than this, it seems that some of the earlier loopholes highlighted will be closed.
But all of this still leaves the law at best ambiguous and at worst useless when it comes to the importation of computer pornography in the one way it most happens - across the phone lines We all realise, or at least we should realise, how utterly confusing and downright unintelligible computers and the computer industry can be to someone on the outside, with no inclination to use or learn about the technology people such as the average AC reader takes for granted.
Maybe a little techno-fear has a part to play Amiga Computing FEATURE This committee recommends... Too little, too earltj?
I The main recommendations of the Home Affairs select committee First Report on computer pornography were as follows: 30000 t To make composite pornographic images - those containing more than one image (say, a young-looking woman's body and a child's head) - the same as any other pornography as far as the law is concerned.
• To increase the penalty for transmitting pornography (ie within
Great Britain's boundaries) by any means, from £1.000 to
£2,500 and three months in prison - or both.
• To amend the Customs Consolidation Act to make clear that it is
an offence to import pornographic material into the country,
and to make this offence arrestable.
T To clarify the law to make it absolutely clear that possession of pornography on. Say.
A hard disk, is as much of an offence as possession on printed paper.
• That the Government should give serious consideration to
banning all advertisements (in magazines, for instance) for
obscene material distributed from abroad.
Tho Homo Office announces Michael Howard’s limltod reforms of the law regarding computer pornography
• That the law be amended to allow the police to use confiscated
computer equipment to continue the fight against computer
pornography.
°*Pose i -on,*,
• That the Home Office should consider whether training in
computers be made more widely available to police officers, or
even be included in the CID training course.
Por° fjfifc
• That head teachers receive guidance about dealing with computer
pornography, and schools report back any incidents of it in
order to form an accurate picture of the spread of computer
pornography in schools.
HdUQ ijour 5dt| fa; The report dismissed suggestions that bulletin boards in Great Britain should be licensed, on the grounds that it would be unnecessary and ineffective anyway.
Interestingly, it also recommended that the Government should involve the European Leisure Software Producers’ Association (ELSPA) in discussions with a view to what further steps might be taken to stop the sale or hire of violent and or pornographic computer software: a salient point, with ELSPA's classifications system currently suffering from teething troubles.
Scred What are your feelings on this subject?
Being computer enthusiasts, it s just the type of ideas our readers may have which are especially useful in a debate where many of the commentators are unsure as to what they re dealing with.
So have your say! Drop us a line at Pornography Feedback. ESP. Amiga Computing, Europa House, Adlington Park, Macclesfield SK1Q4NP, the pale in the government's reticence to update the law. One can understand hesitation in altering a law to govern something those doing the actual altering do not really understand, but the reality still will not go away.
While the Government dithers, technology moves on. Reports from Germany suggest that hard-core pornography is already available on compact discs which can be viewed on Commodore's CD32 games console. It's a far cry from Zool, and a damned sight more worrying.
An industry insider informed us that the complete range of Electric Blue pornographic films, from porn entrepreneur Paul Raymond, will soon be openly on sale in England on CD too.
It is clear that, whatever happens next, the twin race of technology vs the law does not stop here. In the meantime, porn most certainly is swapping hands on disks in our playgrounds, aided and abetted by its easy importation into the country over the telephone lines.
ETHICS It’s an industry, and one which we ignore at our peril. As always, education must be used as a tool where legislation fails. Sgt Ashley: "All schools should teach computer ethics. They’re all for teaching children how wonderful computers are. But they should also teach them about the harm they can cause."
But until the Criminal Justice Bill finally becomes an Act, it remains to be seen what will and will not make it into law. It seems doubtful whether legislation in the near future will be even midly effective, because in order to solve a problem you have to understand it.
If our Government continues to ignore the advice of those who have taken the trouble to study the problem, we will move no closer to a solution. £& Before the publication of the Commons select committee s report, the Home Secretary. Michael Howard, announced the proposed tightening of certain laws regarding the distribution of computer porn.
He outlawed transmission of data (ie the sending from your own computer of pornographic images), and for the purpose of prosecution, included moving images “electronically stored on computer chips and cartridges within the jurisdiction of the Video Recordings Act 1984 However, even if these proposals all become law. They do nothing about the wider problems highlighted in the select committee's report.

MuxHil- Are you moral crusaders? I thought I’d bought a computer magazine (March 1994 issue - Ed) but it turned out to be a copy of The Watch Tower instead. This really is too much. First of all.
The entire porn question has been completely blown out of proportion. Even some of the so-called revelations in The Cook Report have since been discredited as TV cheating, but here we are with yet another sad attempt by AC to improve sales figures by morally castigating the issue while making sure that everyone knows there are dirty piccies inside, Going bach to basics?
This isn't the first time you've done this, but for me it's the last. Even if you are serious in your staunch moral outrage (though given the number of topless pictures you printed I doubt it), what gives you the right to preach to me?
And as for some of your more salacious claims - what crap! Yes, there are sick and perverted people out there, and yes I have no doubt that there are some using computer technology to push their sick wares, but 99 per cent of all BBSs and PD clubs stock nothing more outrageous than Erica whatsit from Baywatch showing her. Er. Charms.
Let's face it. If this is your idea of porn then the tabloids print stuff just as pornographic. Personally I don’t see anything wrong with these types of collection.
They certainly brighten up the rather boring backdrops you get with Windows and Workbench, and before anyone starts accusing me of being a MCP, two girlfriends of mine use Chippendale backdrops on their machine’s.
By constantly (and cynically in my view) pursuing this “your child can get hardcore perversity from almost any PD 0100" route, you are now doing this country a lot of harm. Why?
Well, this country cannot move forward or compete unless we have a new generation who are computer literate. How many children didn't get computers which Christmas because mum and dad thought little Tommy might end up becoming involved in a sordid porn circle? I am not suggesting that we should just ignore the problem of the real disgusting stuff, but please let's get it into proportion and quit the sensationalist approach.
Darren Smithson, Reading You admit only in your final paragraph that we have a problem with the "real disgusting stuff", yet your letter shows that you misunderstood the purpose and content of the article.
We have not and never will be morally outraged over page three-style images sold openly by PD libraries. This is legal and. In the eyes-of most reasonable people, acceptable so long as it is sold to adults.
The recent articles in AC concerning computer pornography (May 1992 and March 1994) have concentrated almost exclusively on those images and animations which are obscene and which would certainly fall foul of the Obscene Publications Act.
By highlighting the deficiencies in the law and the way in which computer porn was (in the past at least) policed, we feel we have made a constructive and objective journalistic contribution to the computer industry as a whole.
You say that 99 per cent of PD is perfectly clean, but this was not the case before our May 1992 article, and the situation has only improved since increased public pressure brought about by the mainstream press and TV prompted further action by the authorities.
Read The Guardian's 23 February edition to see how our "sensationalistic” coverage can have an effect on the wider press, then tell me that we are In I have bought your magazine for two years and I’m generally pleased with it. Each month I usually find an article or a review I'm interested in and I can return to the others as the month goes on.
One thing that’s always annoyed me, though, is the general tone of the mag. Some of the reviews are a bit too technical even for a fairly knowledgeable person, and the games section seems designed for 16- year-olds.
The result is that I often find 30 or more pages do not interest me because they either blind me with science or treat me the wrong to attack a new angle on the pornography problem.
European bulletin boards working as commercial companies selling nothing but obscene pornography across the UK’s borders with nothing to stop them doing so is a completely new development and had we ignored it we would have been guilty of far more than risking offence to some of our readers.
We printed the images you find distasteful precisely because we too thought them distasteful. Had legal advice not cautioned otherwise, we would have included an example of bestiality. A subject which most of us find it hard to believe exists.
You don't have to see too many digitised animations of women having oral sex with Irish wolf hounds to decide that we have a problem which demands attention.
Would Parliament have debated amending the Obscene Publications Act to include BBSs, and would TV and Fleet Street have taken an interest without the lead given by specialist publications such as AC? Probably, but it is doubtful if they would have given computer porn the attention it has received to date.
Like a school boy. This is a waste of money, and considering the average price of a magazine is £4 with an average 180 pages, l spend about 6*p for nothing, Ian Peterson, Gosport Your reaction to some parts of the magazine was one which we found commonly expressed in our reader survey carried out last year, and since then we've been looking at ways of fitting the magazine better to the tastes and preferences of our readers. The upshot is the new look we've introduced this month, and we hope you like it.
- |inahsb have had no problems with it. Any supplier who refuses
to send items C.O.D. just doesn’t get my business.
Amiga Computing has no wish to sensationalise the pornography issue, and has never cynically used it as a sales booster (two articles in two years is hardly a record of consistent exploitation), but we will never take our eyes off the issue and if another new twist in this already twisted strand comes to the surface we will certainly run another piece on it.
That's what we re here for, and if the video industry had had a healthy independent press during the early 70s it is possible that the industry's image would not have been so badly damaged by the flood of XXX-rated videos which hit these shores. They might even have closed the legal loopholes as quickly as they have closed those concerning computer porn.
There is a small charge for the service which the supplier always passes on to the customer, but because mail order is usually much cheaper than retail, the small charge is well worth it. I also find that items ordered
C. O.D. tend to arrive very quickly, usually posted the same day
they are ordered.
Esp’ I believe that if the item's value is more than £50 you have to collect it from your local Post Office because the postie is only “bonded" to collect up to £50. But this is, I feel, far better than either travelling to the supplier or risking losing your money altogether.
It would be a good idea if all your advertisers could offer this service and state clearly on their advertisements whether or not
C. O.D. is available.
Roger Barefoot. Lame
C. D.D. solution I have just read the letter from Ian Belmont in
Carlisle in the March 1994 issue of AC and would like to
inform your readers that there is a foolproof method of
obtaining goods from mail order companies that puts the pur
chaser at no risk whatsoever.
In the early 80s I purchased a Sinclair QL with a modem and used my credit card to pay. The cost of the item was over £300. My credit card was duly debited, but the goods never arrived and the company producing the modem went bust.
It took many months to have the transaction reversed and get my money back into my account, so I decided there had to be a better way. After a bit of searching around and finding out that it was impossible to get items on approval or return from computer retailers I mentioned my problem to a friend who works for the Post Office, who told me about the Post Office’s cash on delivery service
(C. O.D.). This is a system whereby you can phone or fax an order
to a supplier, they then take it to the Post Office and send
it to you, you pay the postman for the package, and the Post
Office then pays the supplier.
I have used the system since 1985 and The C.O.D. system, much forgotten in these days of courier delivery and credit card phone sales, is indeed a sterling service offered by what is still a cheap and efficient national postal service, though how much longer the current government will allow this to go on before breaking it up and flogging it off bit by bit is anyone's guess.
Those who might be nervous about keeping large sums of money in the house in anticipation of the postman calling will be glad to hear that they can call at the bank before picking up the parcel at a local Post Office, so there's no reason not to give C.O.D a try.
Thanks for the timely reminder.
School absentee Why isn't the Amiga used as an education computer? Many children will have an Amiga as a home computer, they will be familiar with the Amiga, and it would be easy for them to use their own machine for homework projects.
Charitg plea The Acorn is expensive and despite recent claims it is not the parents’ choice as We have already been donated Amiga, Sega, and Nintendo games machines, and we have a team of translators sitting ready to translate the instructions into Russian.
We are writing to you in the hope that your publication and its readers can be of assistance to us. As a charity, we are now working in Russia, particularly St Petersburg, to try and bring some hope and happiness to sick children in two of the hospitals of this beautiful city.
Unfortunately, due to so many years of neglect and under-funding all the hospitals have become very run-down and neglected and many of them are in a terrible state. We are supplying a lot of their medical needs and have now undertaken to completely refurbish them.
However, there is one area in which your publication and its readers may be able to help us. The sick children of these two hospitals are in dire need of stimulation.
It is all the staff can do with their meagre resources to treat the children's medical conditions, and we are therefore appealing to all computer users everywhere to donate any games that they no longer want so that we can send them out to Russia for the sick children.
We have also overcome the electricity conversion, so all we need now are games, but please do not send text or adventure games as the children can't read English.
Please help us to show how kind-hearted and caring the young people of the UK can be by sending us any unwanted games to the following address: The Flanders Scottish Alliance Russian Appeal 3 2 Academy Street Edinburgh EH6 7EE Mrs Gwen Brown. Project Director (reg' charity no.

Why have you discontinued the programming tutorials you always used to run at the back of the magazine? I'm one of those people who learned most of his programming from magazine articles, but apart from Amos and a bit of AmigaDOS for beginners you seem to have abandoned the programmers among us.
Would it be too much to ask for a page a month on C or machine code? If you re-instated this sort of tutorial it would guarantee people like me at least one or two pages they'd read over and over again and make full use of. We don’t all use the Amiga for DTP and video titling, you know!
Leslie Farrows. Milton Keynes We dropped the programming column last year when we realised that few beginners were reading it because it assumed a certain level of competence, and the experts were frustrated by it because it was too basic for them. The plan was always to bring programming back, but we left it a little longer than at first intended.
In response to the reader survey, however, we decided to bring programming back with a bang. The Amiga Market section will from now on contain about four pages of tutorials.
To begin with we'll be looking at AmigaDOS and Assembler, but C and other languages should be covered if we think enough of you are interested in those languages.
A home micro, nor is it common as a business machine. It is time Commodore hurt Acom in the only real market they (Acorn) have got - the school.
Let's stop force feeding kids Acorns!
G Swam. Lees wood Commodore have tried in the past to penetrate the education market. Class of the Nineties being their last marketing push, but have found the entrenched Acorns hard to shift.
The BBC micro was Acorn's first real education machine and it had the immeasurable advantage of television and government backing, so Acorn quickly took a commanding lead which the Archimedes - heavily price discounted to education authorities - was able to build upon.
Amigas and Pcs have made inroads into the education market of late, but the Amiga has been hampered by lack of direct support from Commodore and a paucity of standard networking solutions.
Though we agree that education is an area in which the Amiga might find an improved market share, it is unlikely that schools will look much further than Macs and Pcs because these days they try to prepare pupils for the practical uses of computers they will find on their desktops at work rather than simply teach them the rudiments of Basic programming and computer literacy.

COTV AND A570 VERSIONS AVAILABLE NOV £39.95 inc p&p TECHNICAL if- Cap Flasher I have just purchased an A1200 but j'-. I am having a problem when run* 'J- ning programs. My problem is that on several occasions the computer has failed to respond to any Keyboard input after a few minutes.
At the same time the Caps Lock light will flash. Should I take the machine back or am I booting disks incorrectly?
Ray Masters, Wells Of all the faults that happen to the Amiga range the flashing Caps Lock key has to be the most common and it normally requires professional advice.
I would imagine that you are booting your disks correctly and that there is indeed a fault with the machine itself and not your technique.
If your A1200 is still under warranty and you bought the machine before Christmas all you need to do is call Wang (Commodore's repair services) and get them to send someone out to repair it.
If the machine was bought after Christmas you may have to contact ICL who now hold the warranty agreement with Commodore. However, if you have no warranty you could be looking at a fairly hefty bill - it all really depends on the fault.
Power to the people .¦¦"'em. At present I own a 1Mb A500 with i no external drives. At the moment I » cannot decide between buying an external drive or buying a 2Mb RAM Expansion.
So far I have used the Amiga mainly for games but it is very likely that I will be buying a printer for word processing and database management.
Will the extra 2Mb get rid of the slowdown I get from playing certain games (such as Sensible Soccer)? Also, will it mean that I have to swap disks less for games like Civilization? I believe that an external drive would be useful on its own but that an extra 2Mb is quite useless without an external drive. Am I right? Should I buy the 2Mb expansion or the drive, or both?
R Young. Sheffield o It is difficult to weigh one up against the other as both are
* extremely useful. My advice would be to buy the 2Mb RAM and try
and save for a small hard drive, say 40Mb. If this is out of
the question then buy the second drive as well.
Owning a hard drive would mean that you could install games such as Civilization and never have to swap disks again.
The more fast RAM you own the faster software will be. Although whether the speed increase would be noticeable is questionable. Fast RAM frees up the chip RAM which allows space for the computer to perform calculations. The more space, the more calculations can be performed.
Old architecture Prior to my writing this letter I owned to 2 an A600 with 1 Mb trapdoor expan- '*¦ sion and recently required a 2Mb PCMCIA card.
My A600 then developed a fault and instead of repairing it I upgraded to an A1200. But I daren't plug the 2Mb PCMCIA card into it as I have been warned by a local dealer that by doing so could cause problems and possible failure, owning to the card's 16-bit architecture as opposed to the A1200's 32-bit.
These cards are openly sold as A600 and A1200 compatible. Tell me the truth - will they work successfully with the A1200 or have I bought a bad egg?
R Lymer, Stoke-on-Trent The PCMCIA card is compatible with the A600 and A1200 and you cannot damage you machine by using it. As you say, the problems arise with the fact these cards have 16-bit architecture. As the If gou’ue got a problem with L our Umiga. HtUS mag just haue the answer to gour puerg... kl AMIGA COMPUTING ADVICE SERVICE J A1200 uses 32-bit architecture the card can actually slow the machine down, taking twice as long to perform rudimentary functions.
As an add-on they have failed and don't look likely to ever become popular. Your best bet is to purchase fast RAM which increases the A1200's speed considerably, and forget the PCMCIA card all together.

The normal and busy pointers have distorted accord- ngly and so is very difficult to edit them. Recalling the hard drive cures the problem but it always returns after a short while. Could you also I have an A1200 with a 64Mb hard drive and, as a complete novice, I am experiencing lots by your first question regarding the pointer preferences window. This window is normally In lo-res and I have never experienced it shrinking in size.
What I would suggest you do is get hold of some kind of screen grabber such as Picsaver or Quickgrab. This will allow you to grab an IFF picture of your pointer preferences window.
If you send this picture into me I may be able to offer more help. In the meantime, if explain why a utility disk I am using with a system information feature tells me that the device name for both my hard drive partitions is SCSI.Device, yet my user guide tells me that I have an AT IDE internal interface?
A Leak, Derby I must admit to being totally stumped anyone else has any idea what’s happening write in and I'll pass the information on.
Your hard drive connector is in fact AT IDE but the connector fools the Amiga into thinking that It is an SCSI drive. There are valid reasons for doing this and you can be assured that it will not damage your computer. There really is no need to worry when system info utilities tell you that your hard drive is SCSI.
Although A1200 herd drivo* are In tact IDE, the cable fool« the A1200 into thinking that they are SCSI Imtfv IX IlKk list Amiga Computing Hqper help I would like to put together a disk containing questions and answers as an examination aid. I have a copy of Hyperbook which seems to fit the bill very nicely.
(ft Would I be allowed to use Hyperbook as my aim is to sell my efforts. As I am dealing with a very minor subject are there any other programs I could use?
Dhart. W Sussex x Hyperbook is probably the best multimedia application you could v use to create a program such as the one you have described.
' There are others such as CanDo and Blitz Basic but these require time to learn whereas Hyperbook is fairly simple to use.
With Hyperbook you could also attach pictures to your questions improving the look and feel of the software you want to write.
So long as you only use the Hyperbook reader you can sell your program to anyone, anytime, anywhere.

Totally degraded .¦-"« Having replaced my trusty A500 JJ with a sparkling new A1200 I find V2 * to my dismay that I can no longer run my beloved Video Studio v3.0. Moreover, the originators, ZVP have apparently put up the shutters!
I’ve tried Fakemem and Degrader as well as the two-button start-up suggested by Commodore but without success. Am I missing a trick somewhere or have I really got to scrap the program?
W Windsor, Buckingham If you had told me exactly what your A1200 does when you try j£v- and load Video Studio I might have been able to offer more help.
Vou got problems too?

So saue those Shfs As it is, it would appear that the program is incompatible with the A1200, especially as you have tried using several degrader utilities which have not worked.
Before you decide whether or not to discard Video Studio try and get hold of Relokick from the PD as this may offer a solution. Relokick degrades the A1200 into a 1.3 machine. It’s not really much use if you own a hard drive but if you’re using floppy disks it may be your last chance at getting it to work.
Lass of memorq I have recently bought myself an Tj A570 CD-ROM drive for my 1Mb J. A500. But I wish to upgrade the memory of my computer as when the drive is connected my available memory goes down drastically, leaving me with about 850k.
I was under the impression that it was possible to put a 2Mb upgrade into the A570 but after a quick phone call to Silica I was told that an upgrade wasn't available.
Is there an internal 2Mb upgrade available for the A570 or not? And if there isn't, would I be able to use a DMA port RAM expansion with a through-port for the CD drive?
C Tosim, Merseyside I’m afraid that Silica were correct when they told you that the A570 Jjr*- cannot be upgraded as far as memory goes. Using such a piece of hardware is not recommended for 1Mb users so I would suggest that you seriously consider increasing your RAM capacity.
Fortunately, there are some very good DMA RAM expansions that will allow you to plug your A570 in a through port. It would be best if you contacted Power Computing who are renowned for high quality RAM expansions. Power Computing can be contacted on 0234 843388.
And not GB which is installed on my Workbench disk. What has gone wrong and what can I do about it?
£ Denne. Kent If the text is larger than before I would imagine that you have not installed the fonts that the program needs. If this is the case you will need to create a directory on your disk called Fonts and copy the appropriate character sets into it.
The reason that your disk is using an American keyboard is because you have not told it to load the GB keymap.
You need to copy the Setmap command from the System drawer and the GB keymap into the C directory and then type the following command in your startup-sequence: Jttnp c;gb Once you have saved the startup- sequence. Reset your Amiga and hopefully the next time it boots up the disk you should have a British keyboard and not an American one.
[rash dilemma Speak the language I have a home file program which I wrote in Basic. Originally, it involved loading , Workbench, then the Basic inter- preter then my program, just to run it. I thought I would make life easier by copying the interpreter onto my home file disk and then maktng it auto-boot.
Sure enough, the disk now auto-boots, but when I load and run my program I find that the print on-screen is larger than normal, and text that previously fitted now extends onto the next line. Also, when I try to type a new entry I find that I have an American keyboard , I own an Amiga A600 to which I have fitted a 60Mb hard drive and a 1Mb expansion fir) J) memory. Until recently the programs which I had installed onto the hard drive worked v' perfectly but now when I try to run some of these programs my computer crashes When the computer crashes I normally get the following system message:

Flint • taM Progrjn FaW (Enor CNOMN) When I do a soft reboot I normally get the following message: SdtaareFaiire-P»«sl«tUou«8iltwiTeConiTue-Enrr 800DXCMTzsk(B®4ffB In spite of what the first message reads I always wait for the disk light to go oft and for the clock to turn back into the pointer before double-clicking program icons.
I always use the same procedure but still these programs will not work. I have also noticed that the trashcans in both my hard drive partitions have ceased to work.
I am very much a beginner as far as computers are concerned and I feel I am out of my depth so I am writing in the hope that you may be able to help me solve this problem J Byrne, Gibraltar f The error 80000004 refers to an illegal instruction call and normally occurs when % an item of hardware is not working exactly as it should.
' What I would suggest is that you try to load the programs minus the 1Mb expansion as there could be a problem with it. If the programs work you know that if is the expansion that is causing the problems.
I presently own an accelerator and RAM expansion which fairly regularly crashes my machine with the error 80000004. When I am not using the accelerator my Amiga works fine.

only other suggestion is that you totally re-format your hard
drive and then reinstall the system software and your pro
grams. Admittedly, this is a laborious chore but if the
problems persist at least you will know that it is not the hard
drive or the installation.
Problems of this kind consist of a process ot elimination. Remove the expansion, reformat the hard drive and if neither of these work write in again and we It lake II from "..nrWHhw.ofnwnoqrupnn.lon.and.cc.r- orator s can cause your Amiga to crash there.

TUTORIAL Il DOS Stepping int f you own an A1200, congratulations, because you have bought one of the world’s most powerful home computers, capable of running advanced applications and playing superb games.
The A1200 boasts a 68020 processor. 32- bit architecture and the AGA (Advanced Graphics Architecture) chipset capable of displaying thousands of colours on-screen at one time.
What's more, the A1200 comes with a fully functional GUI (Graphical User Interface) known as the Workbench which is now into release 3.0. To become proficient with the A1200 a good understanding of AmigaDOS is required and this is exactly what this article intends to teach you. I would imagine that you have already read your Workbench 3.0 manual and are familiar with the basic workings of Workbench.
This tutorial will cover the many aspects of AmigaDOS and help you to get the most from your machine. Throughout the tutorial you will regularly come across the terms LMB and RMB These abbreviations refer to Left Mouse Button and Right Mouse Button and indicate that you should click that button on the mouse.
Our task in this tutorial is to create an auto-booting disk that can be used to store programs. While covering this you will learn about the structure of Workbench 3.0 and what functions the many programs have.
Obviously, the first thing we must do is to format a disk ready to become our auto-booting disk. Insert a disk into DFO (the Amiga's Build wur am auto-boating disk in the first instalment of Steue White's mlusiue tutorial internal disk drive) and click on it once with the LMB, Pressing and holding down the RMB select Format Disk from the Icons menu at the top of the Workbench.
This will bring up the format requester which will allow you to specify exactly how you want to format the disk. Below the actual name of this disk are four buttons labelled Put Trashcan. Fast File System, International Mode and Directory Cacheing.
These options can be selected or deselected by clicking in the appropriate box with the LMB. Explanations of these options can be found in your Workbench 3.0 manual in section 3-22.
Let's give the disk a new name. Click in the cho This ts ny first auto-hoot in? Disk ssi9fi 1: Ran:
* ENV: Ran: The tint part ot this tutorial shows how to create
the basic directories and assigns needed for a disk to
auto-boot New Volume Name box with the LMB and press the left
Amiga key and X together. This has the effect of deleting the
text that was previously in the box. Type in the following:
MyDisk Press Return and then click on the Format button to
actually erase the disk. If the disk was already formatted as
an AmigaDOS disk you could have selected Quick Format which is
a lot faster.
When the disk has finished formatting it will appear on the Workbench with the name MyDisk. Before we go on let's explain a little about how disks are structured.
An AmigaDOS disk is made up of three parts - the boot block, root directory and data area. The boot block contains the auto-boot information, the root directory contains all the information about the disk and the files that are on it and the data area contains all the data that makes up the many files.
Formatting a blank disk Is simpla thanks to Workbench 3.0’s totally GUI (Graphical Usar Interface). However, to Install a boot block you need the Shell When the root directory is erased all that's left is useless data in the data area. The Quick Format command in the Format requester simply clears this directory. This is why it is a lot quicker than the Format command as this attempts to clear the entu disk. The boot block contains the informatk which informs the Amiga if the disk is ai booting or not. When you format a disk it not auto-booting so we have to make it so using the Install
command.
The format for the Install command is: Install Cdrivc] [noboot] tCheck] [FFSl Drive can be either DFO:. DF1:, DF2:, DF2 or CC0: depending on which drive you connected to your machine. Most users only have DFO.
If the Noboot option is added then the bool block is removed and the disk is no longei auto-booting The Check command simptj checks whether or not the chosen disk i auto-booting and reports its findings. Donl worry about the FFS option as it is ignored.
So, to make our disk auto-booting have to install a boot block. Locate the St program and double click it using the LMB that it opens up. Type in: instill dfO: When you press the Return key the Amiga will install a boot block on the disk in DFO.
Of course, an auto-booting disk is no usa whatsoever without the necessary files. AI this point it would probably be a good idea tc explain the structure of an auto-booting disk a structure which your Workbench 3.0 disk depends on to work property.
Imagine an AmigaDOS disk as a huge fit ing cabinet capable of holding an immense amount of information. Inside this filing cabi net are sub-sections containing even mort information. This is basically how ai AmigaDOS disk is structured.
Your Workbench contains drawers am inside these are files and sometimes othe drawers containing even more files. Thes* drawers are called directones and are use- to keep the Workbench neat and tidy.
There are several drawers that auto-boo' ing disks rely on, These drawers or directc ries are called S, C, Devs. Libs and L. Ther are a few others but it is these that are th most important. The box-out "Giving direc tions" looks more closely at each one.
Now that we know which directories w need on our auto-booting disk we can creat them and copy the necessary files to them.
From the Shell type in the following: ¦akedir Nylisk:S ¦iktdir KyDisLC ¦akedir RyDisk:DEVS
• akedlr NyDisk:LIBS ¦akedir NyBistiL Don't forget to press
Return after each cor Fonut Amiga Computing TUTORIAL mand. The
MakeDir command creates directories on the device specified,
in our case MyDisk.
IflmigaDDS 3.0 Now type in: dir NyDisk: This will show you all the directories on MyDisk which should be S, C. DEVS, LIBS and L. We now need to create a file called Startup-Ssquence in the S directory which MyDisk can execute when it is loaded.
We must create the script file using AmigaDOS’s text editor called Ed which resides in the C directory. Type in the Shell the following in order to create a file called Startup-Sequence: Ed NyBisk:s st«rtup-sequence Notice that we don't have to tell AmigaDOS where Ed is. The Shell automatically checks the C directory for commands that have no path. We could have easily typed in: C;Ed ftyDisk;s stirtup*stquence This will create a file in the S directory of MYDisk called Startup-Sequence. Obviously, the script is blank so we'll enter some instructions so that when the disk boots we have a
fully functioning Workbench.
Type in the following listing, remembering to press Return after each line and I will explain what each line does after.
Echo ‘This is «jr auto-booting disk" Assign T: Rai: Assign ENV: In: LoadVB Endeli NIL: To save the startup-sequence press Esc, x and then Return. We will be improving this startup-sequence considerably in future articles but this will suffice for now. In the meantime let's take a look at each line.
Echo "This is $ y auto-booting disk* The Echo command works just like a Print statement in Basic. It effectively prints the following text, provided it is contained in quotes to the screen.
Assign T; Ri ; The Assign command allows directories to be referenced by a new name rather than their usual names, in this case T. It points any reference to T to RAM. T holds temporary files and is used by the system.
You can assign any names to a path.
Imagine you had a drawer called Text in another drawer called Writing on the Workbench disk.
Instead of having to change directory to the Text drawer you could simply create an assign to point straight to it, like: Assign TEIT: Workbench:Hriting Text Every time you wanted to load or save a text file from a word processor etc you would simply select TEXT: as the path.
A*)ign ENV: RAN: Another assign, this time ENV which points to RAM once again. ENV stands for Environmental Variables and is used by programs to store variables. You can use these variables but they are best left to the professionals.
LOADVB This command resides in the C directory and basically loads and activates the Workbench program. This command is not the complete Workbench program - it only activates it!
ENDCLI 11JL: The EndCLI command also resides in the C directory and terminates the current CLI window so that the Workbench can be exposed.
The NIL: command suppresses any output to the screen such as a text message.
• In the next article we will add the necessary commands so

contains all the information needed to set up a Workbench,
It basically calls commands from the C directory and runs them
in order to set certain parameters so that the Workbench will
function correctly.
C (Commands) The C directory contains all the AmigaDOS commands that control the Workbench. The startup-sequence in the S directory calls these commands in order to set up Workbench. The Install command resides in the C directory.
DEVS (DEViceS) The DEVS directory contains the device driver files for the devices that are currently active on the Workbench. It contains the driver files for things such as keyboard language, monitors and printers.
LIBS (LIBraryS) The LIBS directory contains files that are used by programs in order to perform particular functions. They cannot be run by themselves.
Certain programs may need particular libraries in order to function correctly.
This directory contains the device handlers, software modules that act as intermediate stages between AmigaDOS and the devices used by the Amiga. The machine calls these handlers and therefore the user needn't worry about them except when the handlers require installation.
Jargon buster S: Contains script files including the startup- sequence C; Contains all AmigaDOS commands such as MakeDir, Dir etc DEVS: Contains the device driver files for the devices that are currently active on the Workbench.
LIBS: Contains files that are called by programs in order to perform certain functions.
L: Contains Ihe device handlers, software modules that act as intermediate stages between AmigaDOS and the devices used by the Amiga T: Used to store temporary files.

Arnor Ltd (AMC), 611 Lincoln Road, Peterborough, PE1 3HA Tel: 0733 68909 (24 hr), Fax: 0733 67299 EQZEDlf t's not often that an old timer like yours truly is surprised by the antics of marketing men. It s even more unusual - if not unheard of - for the surprise to be a pleasant one.
H meeting oF minds As you've probably guessed I’ve just had such an experience, in a recent seminar hosted by Premier Vision. Although a new name to the Amiga scene, their founding fathers - Messrs Andy Bishop and Andrew Gould - are old Amiga hands with a wealth of experience in music and multimedia.
Now with the Premier Vision logo emblazoned across their chests the dynamic duo are determined to stamp out the scourge of sales prevention that’s haunted the Amiga in the potentially lucrative corporate market.
Obviously the new Batman and Robin of the Amiga business aren't simply in it for love, but this shouldn't detract from their efforts to provide a serious platform for the machine and its ever growing range of add-ons.
To introduce unconvinced corporate types to the Amiga takes more than a free ticket to the next box-shifting spectacular. As a result Premier Vision did a commendable amount of legwork and personally invited a select audience for a full day of Amiga introduction at a cost of £90 a time.
With the aforementioned price tag and the Amiga’s lack of corporate presence I was fully expecting a table of BLTs and tea and biscuits to myself.
SEMINARS With a mixture of surprise and disappointment I found myself in the heart of London surrounded by a full house of assorted suits, graphic designers, and independent TV production companies.
During this, the first of a number of planned quarterly seminars, the onus was on the Amiga as a video tool with representatives from as far afield as Australia displaying their wares.
One of the most refreshing aspects of the day was the leaning towards presentation rather than the usual box shifting: with only one or two exceptions all the exhibitors let their products sell themselves - which in most cases they did with great aplomb. To Paul Rustin reports on a reuolutionaru approach to Rmiga marketing o be fair quite a few of the attendant videographic types already had a reasonable knowledge of the Amiga and were there for a first-hand look at the impressive array of third party hardware.
The highlight of the day was the debut of not one but three digital video systems. At the cheaper end of the market came the £400 Peggy Plus Mpeg card which offers an answer to the problem of full frame video encoding and playback.
BROADCAST Unfortunately the card didn't have much appeal for broadcast types due to the encoding time, and S-VHS Composite output.
However for the semi-pro user with a Piccolo card and suitable video kit it provides an unbelievably cheap - if rather time consuming - alternative to single frame recording.
The last card to take the digital stage was the product that attracted most of the pros to the launch. The PAR - alias personal animation recorder - has already generated huge interest by not only offering live import and export of near D1 quality video but also full 16-bit audio when combined with the AD516 SunRize 16-bit sampler.
Like the Helfrich product, the PAR was put through its paces with combined live audio video recordings which played back perfectly. To describe the demonstration as An interesting newcomer was a brand new Jpeg digital video card from Helfrich International.
Although the actual name of the board remains a mystery, the pre-production model was on-hand to provide a fairly impressive display of what can be achieved on a pretty basic system.
Unfortunately the demonstration was hampered by linguistics as the German manufacturer attempted to explain that the slight pauses in playback were cause by a rather catastrophic hard drive crash the previous night which had seriously fragmented the drive.
But this did nothing to reassure the fairly cynical audience who instantly turned cold at the prospect of dropping a frame, even if the cause was nothing more than a temporary glitch.
To put the Helfrich product into perspective, it was running on a A3000 using a standard SCSI. Obviously with the addition of a healthy hard disk and a SCSI II that could transfer impressive would be understating things just a tad.
The assorted suits and corporate types were quite literally mesmerised by the ease of use and astonishing quality. When the price of around £3,500 for a complete pro system - with the essential IDE hard disks - was added to the equation, even the most hard-bitten Amiga bashers found it impossible to hide their enthusiasm.
Unfortunately that's about as much detail as a single page will allow, but rest assured that all of the above products will appear in AC as soon as they become available, as indeed will the host of other products that didn't get a mention - including the excellent revision to the SunRize direct-to-disk sampling software.
It only remains for me to thank Premier Vision for at last giving the Amiga the platform it deserves. Combine their efforts with the A.C.E. initiative and the promise of a new Rise-based Windows NT-compatible machine, and the Amiga could at last receive the corporate exposure it so richly deserves. A (50000 data roughly five times faster the erratic playback probably wouldn't have been a problem.
The board’s accompanying sound card is still in the design stage but once complete it should provide CD-quality.
16-bit audio to match its 25fps, 24-bit video playback.
Better still, it offers much improved encoding of existing graphics with conversion speeds between five and ten seconds per frame, but perhaps most important of all was its ability to digitise live video.
Thanks to variable compression ratios, quality can vary between composite right up to within spitting distance of D1 - alias broadcast digital video.
The board is set to retail for around £1.000 minus the audio card and won't require a dedicated hard disk - although a Gigabyte drive or upwards would be a prerequisite for serious use. At the optimum quality, such a drive should provide between ten to 15 minutes of broadcast-quality video.

please COMPETITION Question 1 - Where is Microcosm set?
Question 2 - Who are the two rival corporations?
Tie-breaker - I would look particularly gorgeous sporting a Microcosm T-shirt because... great giueawaij!
Camps galorp from Psygnosis arp up for grabs, not to mpntion somp rathpr sinanHg special odition pieces of fflkfocosm clothing To celebrate the launch of their first CD title, Microcosm, Psygnosis have produced some notably good articles of clothing, namely sweatshirts and long sleeved T-shirts. We’ve got loads to give away, as well as a whole selection of games.
Microcosm is set in a harsh, dark future world called Bodor. And traces the underworld activities of two rival mining corporations, Cybertech Inc and Axiom. Just recently Cybertech have managed to create a P lead over Axiom. President of Axiom, Argon Stark, seizes upon the idea of infiltrating Cybertech’s headquarters and injecting their president with a mind-controlling virus called greyM.
Although the plan is successfully implemented. Cybertech realises that Axiom have sent an intruder into their president. Following a frantic meeting, Cybertech executives decide to inject a craft with which to fight the assassin viruses.
The first prize in our competition consists of a supreme collection of brand new. Really excellent games: Walker. Wiz'n’Lte. And Hired Guns, together with a special edition Microcosm sweatshirt, long sleeved T-shirt, and a Psygnosis short-sleeved T-shirt.
The five runners up will receive one of these superb games: Combat Air Patrol, Lemmings Tribes. Prime Mover. Bob’s Bad Day and Globdule. Plus either a Microcosm sweatshirt or a T-shirt, or both!
To enter, send your answers to these three simple questions and the tie-breaker, on a postcard, to Amiga Computing Psygnosis Competition, Europress Direct, PO Box 2, Ellesmere Port. South Wirral L65 3EA. Don’t forget to give your name and address! Entries should arrive no later than May 31. 1994.
The pnze winner will be drawn from all the correct entries received. Result formation may be obtained by writing to our offices. The editors decision is final no correspondence will be entered into

Not surpnsingly, you can simply add display times in seconds or jiffies - 1 50 of a second increments - but it's also possible to specify that the timing is to be recorded according to mouse clicks during playback of the sequence.
In addition, you're also given the option to schedule the sequence to run on a time day month and year. And when this is added to the program's ability to add interactive buttons and sub-routines, you have the basis of a very respectable interactive point- of-sale system.
TRANSITIONS Moving on to transition control, you're given two alternatives; you can either select one of the 20 transition types which sit permanently at the bottom of the screen, or click directly on the icon itself which will produce a requester holding the entire range of 68 assorted wipes, fades, scrolls and block transitions.
As you'd expect, transition speed is user- definable, but perhaps most impressive is the mini preview window which actually shows the selected transition in action via two thumbnail dummy pages. Assuming you've defined the appropriate timing and added the transition of your choice, it’s time to move on to the next page in the presentation, In the case of video work this is most likely to be the titling page but there's a fairly impressive selection to choose from.
Along the right side of the main screen await all the available page options which from top to bottom include a basic black page, followed by a rather odd colour bar.
Quite why these have been added as defaults rather than simple IFFs is a mystery, but I suppose it's still early days.
Following these come the essential Title and IFF options. As the name suggests, the Title page allows you to add animated text to the page, which like full page transitions has its own selection of approximately 45 intros for either text, brushes or VSP’s own internally-generated graphics, such as the stars ower presentation has become synonymous with expensive software such as Scala and MediaPoint - both of which cost a packet and offer a bucket full of features which many users may never actually need.
As a consequence. Oxxi have come to the rescue with the imminent arrival of VideoStage Pro - alias VSP. In essence the program has been designed to offer all the video titling and multimedia essentials without the whistles and bells such as Midi, laser disk support, Canon ion cameras and so on.
Like any self-respecting presentation or titling package, ease of use is a high priority and in the case of VSP this is guaranteed via the entirely point and click interface.
As you can probably tell, the main screen is divided into four basic areas. Across the top are the usual array of load and save options plus a useful swap button which allows you to alternate between two projects As a result it's very easy to swap elements between various projects using simple cut and paste operations.
Below the tool bar sits the real heart of the VSP system. As you can see the program employs a page system to display either single pages, audio events, animations, Arexx triggers, active genlock pages and VSP's own index events.
Alongside every page sit two additional icons, one of which controls the timing information while the second handles transition to the next page.
Although rather insignificant looking, these icons hold the key to VSP's titling and presentation power. For example, a click on the timing icon will instantly reveal a pop-up requester which holds an impressive array of [Tent] Eras ......UHrlfriE Iltt* ! Hi |llot Color Si__

Layered text and graphic a, gradient fill* on atandard Amiga fonta and even support tor EPS graphic files Now before you run away in terror at the prospect of sub-routines and goto commands don't worry, there's no need to panic. This elementary approach to programming is very straightforward.
Basically the assorted index pages - shown as a senes of yellow control icons - are only there for those who wish to use VSP as a interactive presentation platform.
With the assistance of the various index commands, an author is given an easy method of redirecting the user around the script according to button and hot-spot selections.
For example you can construct a simple information system which will take the user down a particular route and then perhaps return them to the mam screen automatically.
Easq authoring Amiga Computing 3 33 £ d3d3 3as2D w4 " a-.oo- Snoolh Sera I I Is ScrolI¦ JOJ Scroll ?I Gallery An impressive range of page transitions most of which have real-time preview in the thumbnail graphics window 86 MAY 1994 in the Test Transition screenshot overleaf.
As you’d expect from a titling package, 3D, drop shadow, italics and outlined text are all on offer in addition to a selection of backdrops or IFF of you choice.
You can add buttons and hot-spots which can redirect the script, play a sample or issue an Arexx command. And of course anti-aliasing is optional on all graphic pages.
IFF pages offer much the same as far as text handling is concerned but they also provide the added benefit of optional animation.
Moving on we come to the sound event, which can be either a sample or MOD which will play asynchronous with the graphics according to the timeline - more on that later.
Below this you're provided with special genlock screens which exploit the additional videographic power of the ECS chipset. Add to that standalone Arexx control pages and the selection of index markers - user definable sub-routines or goto pages - and the selection is complete.
GALLERY The only other obvious element of the main screen is the rather mysteriously titled gallery window. Basically this is a graphical approach to cut and paste.
For example, if you want to copy an element to a various location you simple drag it into the gallery window, scroll to the appropriate position and drop it back in.
Although useful on larger presentations, the Gallery only really comes into its own when sharing elements from existing presentations. As mentioned earlier, it's possible to open two presentations simultaneously - in which case the Gallery can be invaluable in allowing you to copy pages complete with define effects and timing and drop them straight into another script.
Although timing control is handled fairly extensively via the individual icons for each page, the program also provides a method of fine tuning the presentation via the Timeline control window which pop-ups via a control button towards the bottom of the screen.
Once active, all the elements within the script are shown on a linear timeline with sg EJdjiJS 11 33 ttttgaaa ifcani InkiQ iM an NH MM U Mv r*MnMwan XIO lhiM»TnM»« Pravlaw |ll»£SEP L U WPM various drag bars displaying the particular timing information for the various events in the script.
As you're already aware, not all the possible events within a VSP presentation are necessarily graphical. As a result, the timeline provides a method of non-graphically will seem vaguely familiar.

COMPUTER SUPPLIE: 36 HOPE STREET, HANLEY, STOKE-ON-TRENT ST1
5BS UPDATES L t was only recently that the Amiga’s ¦
premiere paint package, Deluxe Paint, was knocked off the top
by Brilliance. Deluxe Paint has become the Amiga owners'
favourite due to its technical ability and the fact that
Commodore later decided to package the program with Amiga
models.
And even though Brilliance is technically better in almost all areas, it still hasn't managed to dent Deluxe Paint's popularity with punters.
Time now then for a new paint package to put on the gloves and challenge the champ, Personal Paint comes from Italian software house Cloanto, responsible for the Personal Fonts Maker program, and boasts some major improvements over previous versions.
Italian stallion Personal Paint v4.0 features the ability to draw in Ham8, which is exclusive to the A1200 and A4000 Amiga models, although the program will run on any machine with 1Mb RAM, including the A500.
It is fair to state that Personal Paint features a myriad of new features not supported by Deluxe Paint, but a paint package relies heavily on its ease-of-use - technical merit tends to come second.
The untrained eye could be fooled into thinking that Personal Paint is in fact Deluxe Paint, and to all intents and purposes the user interface is very similar. Most of the standard drawing tools are available plus a few new ones.
STANDARD Apart from supporting all present Amiga graphics modes, Personal Paint also has the ability to load and save files in different formats. Not only is the IFF ILBM standard supported but also GIF. PCX. CRYPT and C_Scr.
Crypt allows the user to protect his or her pictures with a passcode and C_Scr saves the image as C source code suitable for embedding into Amiga graphics programming environments.
Once an image is loaded. Personal Paint offers a variety of editing tools, most of which are available in Deluxe Paint. The arc tool has been much improved containing points which the user can drag in order to increase or decrease the curvature of the arc. The only problem with this tool is that when dragging points vertically or horizontally, the mouse stops at the screen edges and the curve can be extended no further.
This is a major error which needs to be corrected as soon as possible.
Personal Paint also supports retargetable graphics including Picasso and Retina.
However, when I tried to load a standard IL6M created in Imagine the program quit.
Why I don't know!
Going back to the editing tools. Drawing with extended pen nibs or brushes causes the program to slow considerably, and this on an A1200 with an 030 accelerator, FPU (floating point unit) and 4Mb of RAM.
Deluxe Paint, even with full screen brushes, renders them quickly and without slowing down and therefore Personal Paint loses points to its rival.
A useful feature is the Grab Application Screen which when activated allows the user to grab a screen of the Workbench or any other open application and dump the file onto the editing screen.
Personal Paint is capable of combining two pictures into one and creating a suitable palette. This is ideal for anyone who wants to combine pictures which contain different palettes into one single image or an animation in Deluxe Paint. In fact, an unlimited number of pictures can bo merged with very little colour reduction.
Of course, the quality of the reduction depends greatly upon how many colours your initial picture contains but an AGA machine should have no problem remapping colours.
It is Personal Paint’s image processing tools that make this a worthy paint package Many users may be looted Into thinking that Personal Paint is Deluxe Paint.
The similarities arc vast but both offer distinct facilities that when combined offer extensive graphic design abilities Steue White checks out the latest contender to the paint package cmuin. [loanto'5 Persona! Faint alone. It may not have animation or perspective facilities but the combination of advanced image processing and competent editing tools makes Personal Paint one of the best all-round paint packages available.
Apart from the customary blur, emboss and pixelise-type processing options, more advanced functions are available such as water-colour. The water-colour effect is truly amazing and gives a very realistic impression of such a painting.
A special tool has been added which allows you to image process on specified areas of the screen. This means you can draw a shape and then process any data under that shape without affecting the rest of the screen PROCESSING Unfortunately most, If not all of the image processing functions are very slow, even on the lower screen formats. Why the image processing and drawing tools are so slow is a mystery but it is a problem that certainly needs addressing and hopefully Cloanto will solve it with later versions.
Personal Paint is a great paint and processing package but there a few niggles that do let it down. The lack of animation or perspective hold it back considerably but as an addition to Deluxe Paint it is certainly worth the asking price. The wealth of image processing features provided justify the pnce alone.
Personal Paint costs £49.99. For more information contact Meridian Software Distribution on 081-543 3500.

Please place your orders on the Reader Offers form on page 91 INTERVIEW ver the last couple of years, pressure has been mounting for the ever-growing software industry to sort out its act and clean up its image into that of a sector which cares about the effect that its games could have on youth.
o ELSPA (the European Leisure Software Publishers Association) who represent the video and computer games industry in Europe, have recently introduced a voluntary code of practice for their members to put a ratings system on the boxes of games denoting to the parents what age group the title is suitable for.
The questions on the industry's lips are how effective will it be, and how useful is it at the end of the day - especially as you don't need to be a member to trade software.
Roger Bennet, general secretary of the ELSPA. Is put in the line of fire for the devil's advocate. Here is his interview: loo little, too late?
S What about the young buyers whose parents don’t take an interest in what their children buy? Is there anything you can do to look out for them?
(LSPR's neui self-regulatory
S) Fqr our readers, could you toll us about the recent
regulations introduced?
H We developed the proposal of establishing a voluntary age rating system to be incorporated on all [games] packaging. It has been discussed at great length over a long period of time and as you know, was introduced on February 9.
The reason for this age rating system is from research that's been conducted at consumer level - parents of younger children in particular are very badly informed about computer and video games.
The object of the system is to provide the opportunity of being better informed of the contents of games and to make clear which titles are suitable for certain ages.
In addition to which of course, it's important that when people are buying original software that it is seen to be logoed and identifiable in the sense that it comes from a legitimate and reasonable supplier, Therefore, too. Parents should understand what they're buying is legitimate and is produced by a responsible publisher.
38 Do your members have to abide by the new ratings or will they be struck off the list of ELSPA?
Images are unreal and I till that there is an auitul lot of. ' '"" of the youth of today to assume that they can't tell the difference detuieen fantasy and reality rules Ciuuld be seen as the games industry groining up - or struggling to auoid legislation.
But do they address the real issue of child protection?
Bdam Phillip inuestigates and we're confident that all members of the association will adopt it in due course, if not already - a vast majority are immediately adopting the system.
S But if they don t abide, what happens ?
Qthat would be a decision that would be need to be taken in the fullness of time, determined by the circumstances at any one stage - if anyone abuses the system of course, then that's a different matter altogether i ?Well. It's up to them really. Obviously, it's equally up to us to ensure that they are properly informed of how it works and there will bo by a campaign at retail level.
It is a voluntary circumstance and retailers may wish to adopt it but they're under no obligation not to sell any games if they're not suitable for children according to the rating system because it is not a mandatory system.
There has been pressure put on us by retailers to provide some form of guideline and therefore if retailers find that some product doesn't have a rating, it's up to them to decide whether they wish to stock it or not.
? We are providing purely a guideline for parents, not necessarily for kids. If young children want to go in and buy a game which is not suitable according to the age rating system, it is entirely up to the retailer whether they wish to sell it or not.
G Don’t you feel that highly-rated games will receive more attention, therefore help with marketing and increase sales?
Hwell. The same principle applies to video or films doesn’t it. Really... SI Video and film traders are legally obligated to not providing certified material to an age group below the ratings - ELSPA members have no legislation at all to adhere to... ?Since we had pressure put on us by retail, retailers will adopt a system whereby if it's not suitable, they may not sell it to the child. I mean if a child wants to get hold of it, he'll send somebody else older in to get it for him.
That same premise applies even under the lawful restrictions, so the rating system is a means by which people can identify products to be suitable for age groups.
This’ll provide software of a responsible nature from the publishers and it’s also a means of establishing a self-regulatory system which ideally will not require government intervention.
You must understand that the perception of this industry is fairly important and it's equally important that magazine publishers maintain a responsible attitude in the way they present products to the consumer.
The magazine publishing industry is very much a shop window and therefore, it is important... I'm not suggesting your magazine in any way... but there are magazines that have been seen to be undermining what we are trying establish, which is a responsible attitude.
S Is the ratings system simply a way to appease the government and other censoring bodies from clamping down on Amiga Computing the industry? Does your scheme offer real protection taking into account to the lack of legal legislation?
0 The fact is that the law already exists to ensure that games that need classifying are classified... S3 That law though doesn't apply to cartridges... 0 But that, I’m afraid, is going to happen... well. I'm not afraid, I'm rather glad it's going to happen. Under the current legislation going through Parliament, the Criminal Justice Act is being amended meaning cartridges will be included.
38 Do you feel that games such as Mortal Kombat are healthy titles for the young player?
Hwell, the initial Mortal Kombat was introduced by Acclaim, was seen by the Trading Standards Authorities, the British Board of Film Classification and ths Video Standards Council and was defined as being not required to be classified. Not just under the law but in real terms, because it is a fighting game, but it is a digitised program.
The images are unreal and I think that there is an awful lot of patronisation of the youth of today to assume that they can’t tell the difference between fantasy and reality.
My 14-year-old son plays computer games and I monitor what he plays.
$ What about the parents who don’t monitor what their children play?
0 Well, that's the object of what we are trying to achieve, which is to inform parents, or specifically those who are concerned about it but are not sufficiently au fait with the systems, to make them feel more comfortable about it... The European Leisure Son ware Publishers Association the trade organisation behind the ratings system % Do you feel that as games become more realistic and interactive, they should become properly certified like videos and films?
Hwell. They will be.
H A good thing?
0The arguments can rage in the same way as the arguments were made about the voluntary rating systems that it will encourage children to go for the higher-aged games, The same principle applies if you certify games formally in the way the BBFC classify video and film.
As more and more games require classification because of the real images shown in them, we have to work out a system with the BBFC to ensure that those games can and will be submitted in the same way that they are now on a voluntary basis.
We have to make sure that the BBFC can view the games in such a way that it is administratively practical and feasible.
I mean it is very, very difficult for software publishers to submit game details other than on video, in order for the classification to be given. We have to work out the ways Die fact is that the lam atarii Emists to ensure games that need ilassilwg are dassM 0-10 11-14 15-17 18* i imtMT c m umfiA i ire b v- ™ ua
r. ounttJouowN w oummiira That ratings box In full - Ilka tha
Monitor Man, It has already undergone changes tinea Its launch
Stop PCB5S wide system. Acclaim are similarly looking to North
America for a global solution and standard.
Many other companies have complained about the Monitor Man logo which has now been dropped.
Electronic Arts are using the new system but, according to Computer Trade Weekly, "are not happy to", and Ocean are hoping that “something better will come along" but have agreed to use the system .
Despite these setbacks, ELSPA is adamant about their plans and believe that goverment interaction is closer than people may think
• Since this interview, there has been a considerable amount of
dissent among software and hardware manufacturers concerning
the scheme. Neither Nintendo nor Acclaim, both ELSPA members,
are intending to follow the new system.
Nintendo UK said: “We have to take a global view.
We can't be parochial, unless legislation absolutely forces us to."
While not denouncing ELSPA in anyway for their motivation to get something done. Nintendo are more interested in the battle in the States to establish a worldin which a process can be established - we'll be doing that next week.
More games will be classified as time goes on inevitably, but of course the vast majority of games will not required to be classified formally.
In those circumstances, we believe that we have support from retail and from Parliamentary interests and from others within the industry as well as the Video Standards Council, People will have the opportunity of getting some idea of how suitable the graphic content of a game is in age terms.
A voluntary guideline can do nothing but good in that respect and inevitably in a journalistic press and from the media's point of view, you're damned if do and damned if you don't- We feel that it is important, that it is not hype for the industry.
The rating system is simply a means of establishing the industry as responsible - it addresses its products to the consumer in a responsible way and the people who buy the product with the logo and the age rating system on it can be sure that it is acceptable in every possible way.
W. Some people in the industry feel that it's too little, too
late - how do you feel about that?
0 No. I don't agree at all. It certainly supersedes anything that anybody else in the world has done - it's the first voluntary system that’s been installed anywhere in the world and secondly, look what happened to the video industry who did nothing.
Thank you for your time.

However before you transcode or convert from one video format to another, you must define your source. In the case of TBCPIus there's simultaneous support for two composite and one Y C, each of which can be switched live with a clean frame accurate cut.
Y C SIGNALS For those working exclusive in Y C.
There's also an option to accommodate two Y C signals, but to use it you’ll need to invest in a Y C mini din which splits the luminance - Y - and chrominance - C - into two separate male phonos.
Once achieved you plug the separate signals into the composite inputs and select Y C2 on the control panel. Now you can switch between the two Y Cs - but of course composite input is sacrificed in the process.
Fortunately GVP have had the foresight to That 5uncing Paul Bustin enplores probably the best professional uideo peripheral of the year, as bUP unueil the amaaing IbfPlus ven though the Amiga has had a long and illustrious career in the video business, time base correctors still generate puzzled expressions and vague conversation from even the most experienced Amiga videographers.
The reason is that TBCs - as they're more often called - have always been expensive beasts, swathed in mystery, only to be found lurking at the heart of the most pricey pro edit suites.
Now GVP1 are set to change that with the arrival of TBCPIus, a product that not only offers colour correction and a rock solid sync 98 MAY 1 994 but much more besides.
If you’re a little unsure about the subject, have a quick browse through the background info section and pop back later because it's time to dive head-long into the features and functionality of this excellent product.
Not surpnsingly TBCPIus is yet another peripheral that demands a Zorro slot whether it be version II or III, so am afraid an A1500 or above is a prerequisite. Aside from adding the card, the only other essential is to plug-in the supplied 25-pin connector, which bristles with ten assorted I O leads.
Assuming you've selected the appropriate input and output connectors for your particular kit, all that remains is to install the software and start to experiment.
On boot-up the first task is to select the include a comprehensive selection of preset project settings which offer automatic configuration for most systems.
False colour In addition, the card's Arexx support provides a few useful scnpts for fading down one input, switching and fading up on another, and of course where you find Arexx you're sure to discover user-definable macros which offer an even more flexible application of the card.
BASICS For now I'll leave the plus aspects of the card aside and concentrate on the basics.
Assuming your equipment is providing an input and the correct input mode is selected, the card will automatically sense the incoming format.
However, to ensure success and to pro- GRAPHICS It sounds good, the output looks great, but what exactly is a TBC. And what does it do? Essentially a TBC has two basic talents. The first is to provide a rock solid video signal which can then be passed downstream for additional processing or editing.
To achieve this the live video is temporarily stored within the board's onboard RAM. Any errors in the sync are corrected and the subsequent squeaky clean signal is then passed on.
OK. All very nice, but why is a rock solid signal so important? All video processing operations require a sync signal, and the better the signal is the better the end results will be.
For example add-on hardware such Background as genlocks, frame grabbers, chroma keyers, video mixers and video editing systems all benefit immensely from improved signal quality.
This also extends to tape duplication. If you lose a generation in normal circumstances the degradation of the signal can cause real problems if you then need to process the signal later on. However if you use a TBC during duplication you ensure optimum signal quality and perfect sync for downstream production - no matter how many generations are lost. In fact thanks to the TBC a later generation will lose little image quality, if any.
In addition to providing a rock solid sync, the second basic element of any self-respecting TBC is the ability to apply live colour correction to the In the case of TBCPIus this is achieved via the Proc Amp pop-up requester with which you can adjust brightness, contrast, hue and saturation - in addition to mono conversion.
Add sync adjustment and colour correction and you have the basis for a TBC. But in the case of TBCPIus this is only the beginning. In addition to the essentials the plus part of the system provides real-time frame grabbing, digital video effects, live user-definable image processing, video format conversion and transcoding all as standard.
Somewhat specialist - pro video product.
However, that’s only the beginning... Although TBCPIus has the option to add additional special effects hardware, the card also ships with a impressive collection already built-in. Thanks to the board's 1Mb frame buffer you’re provided with three strobe DVEs plus a single freeze frame effect.
Better still, the effects themselves can employ a user-definable delay. As a result you can emulate simple stop frame animation or go right up to user defined sequential snapshot freeze frames.
Although this may be stating the obvious, it’s worth stressing that all the effects listed are applied to live video and can be switched and combined with colourisation effects without a glitch.
GOODIES As you can see from the screenshots, strobe and freeze frame effects are by no means the only goodies on offer. In fact the board's built-in colour processing options can produce stunning end results. And of course.
When combined with the strobe and still Beginners jargon buster correction. Here again TBCPIus scores well via the Proc Amp pop-up requester which allows complete control over the colour composition of the signal.
With the various transcoding, format conversion, sync adjustment and colour correction TBCPIus adds up to an impressive - if W advance sync: An advanced sync signal transmitted 4.1 microseconds ahead of the video frame which allows servo-locking VCR's to precisely match the incoming video sync signal.
Chroma: The element within the video image which carries colour information.
Black burst input: A completely black video signal which supplies an external sync reference for TBCPIus when being used as a frame synchroniser.
I2C: A serial communication specification used widely in professional video equipment.
Vide a little added flexibility the input requester allows manual selection between two NTSC formats, four PAL. One Secam plus two mono modes running at 50 and 6QMHz respectively Assuming you're happy with you inputs, it’s time to move to the output requester and select between the six assorted PAL and NTSC formats.
All you need do is select the format you require, and the outgoing signal will be automatically converted and sent simultaneously to composite and Y C outputs.
As a result you're provided with a means of converting NTSC, Secam and PAL to either PAL or NTSC frame rates and resolutions, while simultaneously transcoding the signal either to or from Y C or composite with the minimum loss of image quality As mentioned in the background info, another common use for a TBC is live colour frame your imagination is the only limitation.
I’m impressed!
Like the rest of the system, special effects receive a high level of user control with options to grab either full or odd and even frames for both still and strobe effects.
As for colourisation control, you're provided with a slider to adjust the seventy of the chosen effect. Again all adjustments are made in real time - so you can add even more variety to the chosen effect.
An obvious extension of the freeze frame effect is the ability to grab and store the data on disk. As a result, superb frame grabbing is a key TBCPIus feature. Due to the broadcast quality of the strobe and still-frame features, grabbing single frames is second to none.
As you're probably aware. VlabY C offers more advanced frame grabbing features such Y C; An abbreviation of luminance and chrominance, used to represent a two channel video standard used by S-VHSIHI8 video equipment.
Composite video: A single video signal which contains all the Information necessary to form a complete video image.
Luma: The element within the video image which contain brightness information.
Sync: A sync pulse is the first element in a video signal.
As sequential grabbing via the IFR system, but if you're after full frame grabs that hardly ever require deinterlacing. TBCPIus is quite simply the best in the business.
Aside from the unbeatable image quality, TBCPIus has another huge asset for the professional videographer. Although there are quite a few real-time 24-bit grabbers on the marfcet, most suffer from a noticeable pause between hitting the button and the actually grabbing the frame.
But with the assistance of TBCPIus the grab is instantaneous. Obviously during fast action and close edits this can be invaluable, and of course the lack of interlace flicker means even fast action can always be stored at optimum quality GRABBING Unfortunately there is one minor limitation in the grabbing department. Although you may have a colounsation effect running at the time, the actual grab is always saved out in its original form, so you’ll require the assistance of ImageFX, ADPro and ImageMr to emulate the desired effect after grabbing the image - see ImageFX on-line box for more
information.
Like the effects section, stillstore offers a good deal of user control with options to select between odd or even fields plus full frame. When a suitable image is captured, you’re provided with the option to save out in the following formats: IFF24, Jpeg - with user-definable compression and optional smoothing. YcrCB and Caligari.
As you've probably gathered thanks to the brief mention of the ten-way 23-pin connector, input and output are taken very senously on the TBCPIus.
The various inputs include two RCA phono composite ins which can also double-up as an additional split Y C. As well as the aforementioned RCAs, there is also a single Y C mini-DIN.
In addition to the basic video ins, there is Not surprisingly GVP have built in a good deal of affinity between TBCPIus and ImageFX. As a result TBCPIus appears in the scanners list and can be controlled directly from ImageFX for frame capture.
Basically all the control elements available in the Stillstore requester are repeated within ImageFX, so as you can see from the examples producing video compositions using two buffers and an Alpha is very straightforward.
As mentioned earlier, colourisation effects are ignored so also a sync reference or black burst-in which with the assistance of a T-connector can provide a sync reference pass-through.
Finally there’s an additional - and separate - stand-alone key input.
Output does equally well with simultaneous Y C and composite-out plus a separate advanced sync which can be used with downstream hardware.
As well as the basics, there is also an option to add linear time code to the equation via an optional SMPTE EBU timecode reader generator. Although not yet shipping, the chip should be available by the time you read this article.
With this addition to the system you’re provided with ability to both read and generate Vertical Interval Time Code - VITC - and Longitudinal Time Code - LTC - in all SMPTE and EBU standards, which of course makes the system even more attractive in pro studio situations.
Due to the SMPTE option, twin phono LTC connections are provided as standard and simply require the addition of the time code Chip to become active players in the board’s I O repertoire. Lastly GVP have also added an l?C remote control connection for video kit equipped with the appropriate data bus.
UPGRADE Although expansion has been mentioned in relation to the board’s optional SMPTE chip, SMPTE is only the beginning of the available upgrade options.
In a obvious attempt to court the pro market. An optional Comb filter can be added to the system allowing TBCPIus to split an incoming composite source from a camera, tuner or Laserdisc into separate chroma and luma signals, thereby allowing the board to process the signal as if it were a true Y C input, resulting in a much improve output signal.
For those looking further into the future.
You'll have to add them once the image has been imported, but as you can see the creation of weird effects isn't exactly difficult.
As for ease use there's no complaints whatsoever, specifically thanks to the board's ability to freeze the image prior to actual importation.
As a result you can sit back and repeatedly hit the freeze button until the best possible grab appears and then import, rather than grabbing direct, only to find the import isn't what you wanted.
GVP have also added a digital features bus and a video expansion bus. The plan is that these existing ports will allow the addition of direct-to-disk video recorders. 3D digital video effects generators. Jpeg non-linear editing systems. RGB YUV transcoding as well as chroma, luma and linear keyers.
My only concern was GVP’s track record for developing proprietary expansion ports which would obviously limit third-part support. However after conversion with GVP’s Gary Nush and Letitia McMaster, I'm assured the buses aren't as proprietary as the manual would have me believe, and in fact most third-party hardware should work without modification - we shall see.
RAM expansion is another speciality of the board, with an option to add up to 8Mb of RAM - GVP's own brand of course.
Although not tested the manual claims that thanks to GVP's DMA technology transfer times of 3.58Mb per second can be achieved
- a figure far superior to normal Zorro II transfer. £jjf Amiga

Question One - Which dimension is Zool from?
Question Two - How many colours are available with the CD32?
Tie Breaker -1 drool over Zool because... The Amiga CD32 is the machine for the ardent games player who may also want a full computer system as their needs grow. This superb system takes the best of 256,000-colour Amiga AGA graphics technology, adding a multi-session CD drive, to give potentially 600Mb of ultimate animated graphics and digital stereo sound on each optical disk.
If you’re the lucky first prize winner you’ll be able to test out your new machine with Zool, the Ninja of the nth Dimension and number one smash hit game, which is about to become a big hit on the Amiga CD32. This massive arcade adventure game has stunning and addictive game play, with awesome graphics and full-screen parallax scrolling.
Zool is a totally unique and distinctive character, with a multitude of weapons tucked up his sleeve. There is a new world with new graphics, and there are 3D rendered shots throughout the game, plus a complete CD sound track. Four lucky runners up will each receive a copy of Zool together with a special edition Zool T-shirt.
To enter; send your answers to these three simple questions and the tie breaker, on a postcard, to Amiga Computing CD32 Zool Competition, Euro press Direct, PO Box 2, Ellesmere Port, South Wirral L65 3EA. Don’t forget to give your name and address and let us know if you don’t want to receive promotional material from other companies. Entries should arrive no later than May 31, 1994.
The prize winner will be drawn from all the correct entries received.
Result information may be obtained by writing to our offices. The editor's decision is final, no correspondence will be entered into.

T last, you have reached the point of no return. You are well on your way to becoming computer literate. Your friends (and enemies) might stop you and say “you techie", “you anorak" or “get a life", But no, you're proud of what you've achieved and know that while they're on the dole queue, you’ve set yourself up on the road to one of the largest and most rapidly expanding industries on the face of this planet.
Here, as the fin? Instalment of the series, is a look at a series of books that will continue to help and increase your knowledge of that value for money machine sitting in the living room.
Keep reading Amiga Computing lor the latest book reviews and updates for the choice books to spend your hard-earned cash on. Good luck... ffs the absolute Beginners series draws to a close. Hdam Phillips leaues you with a selection of boohs to help gou tahe the neat steps to enlightenment fllastEring Amiga DBS 2 Uolumes1 ft 2 Authors: Smith & Smiddy Publisher: Bruce Smiths Books Price: Vol 1 - £21.95 Vol 2 - £19.95 These two books give a full run-down of Amiga’s operating system, The first volume forms an extensive tutorial to help the struggling beginner to get up and running and by the
end. You’ll be a whole lot wiser.
The second tome acts a reference book for the first, featunng commands and examples to extend the user's knowledge. While the A1200 uses v3 of DOS. These are sfill highly useful and there is a volume for v3 if so desired in the form of another reference book.
However you look at it, these will help your understanding of the Amiga Shell immensely, and come highly recommended.
Hl5D recommended... Mastering Amiga Amos by Phil South is another solid book ideal for budding enthusiasts of this very popular language. Priced £19.95 and available from Bruce Smith Books, this receives high marks for content.
Knows it like the back of his own hand. The guide takes the reader through installing Arexx and its more prominent features while comparing it to the likes of Basic with various programming examples.
Make no mistake, this is a sturdy, heavy going book on the whole but well worth the time invested in it especially seeing that the instructions that Commodore provide are so... well... cack.
Author: Bruce Smith Publisher: Bruce Smith Books Price: £14.95 Already a best-seller, The Insider Guide' is a valuable tome well worth the asking price. By using simple step-by-step tutorials, the book takes the reader by the hand, showing the vanous basics of the machine.
From MultiView and copying files to Intellifonts and configuring sounds, the The Insider Guide' is a non-threatening book packed with useful info.
Amiga - fleat Steps Author Peter Fitzpatrick Publisher: Bruce Smith Books Price: £14.95 This picks up from where the Bruce Smith’s book left off. Twenty-two chapters cover a varying amount of topics from Amiga DOS, pnnting and the contents of the Workbench disks to even a few helpful hints on game playing.
There are a few slips along the way with a rather short-sighted approach to hard drives and their reformatting but on the whole, like its forefather, this is a simple to use and understandable sequel and even features a section on how to remove coffee once spilt on a keyboard.
Now that's what I call practical.
Amiga 1200 Beginner’s Path Author: Various Publisher: Bruce Smith Books Price: £39.95 Reviewed last month in this very magazine, the Beginner's Pack compilation features the two above books, a 60-minute video and four disks of PD and shareware software. The ? I I a J f* • J_ to the fllBDD video is an extremely basic guide to the very* fundamentals of Amiga 1200 operation - explanations of the keyboard and the ports at the back are absolutely ideal for the utter novice technophobe.
After viewing the cassette, the two books fill in the main bulk of the package and as described above, are about as good as you can find at present. The disks feature a variety of utilities and programs for your perusal once familiar with the basic setup of your machine.
A word processor, clip art. Music editor, virus checker and other handy items are included, making the Amiga 1200 Beginners Pack good value for money. Recommended Denng Rthin's Best Amiga lips And Secrets Author Denny Atkin Publisher: Compute Books Price: £18.75 Not structured in the same way the Insider’s Guide is, Denny Atkin’s book is still a worthwhile purchase for all kinds of tips and advice on the Amiga’s more hidden functions. Written in an easy if a little over- Americanised tone, this is an ideal reference book to dip into from time to time with the only real negative being the
price.
Dtatering Amiga Arehh Author: Paul Overaa Publisher: Bruce Smith Books Price: £21,95 Even though you might not know what on earth Arexx is at the moment. I’m sure that you’ll delve into it at some stage.
Arexx is the Amiga version of Rexx, a programming language that Commodore has made part of Workbench. While being a specialised area. Arexx is a useful language to know and this book, while on the expensive side is.

Public domain, shareware and licence ware, ot course. Mam Phillips follows this month's bargain basement offerings r f you flick through this magazine, you'll stumble across pages made up of listings with a phone number al the bottom. Unless you’re reading another kind of mag altogether, you'll see that these are the advertisements for the various PD libraries all round the country that offer excellent value for money and some of the most intriguing and interesting software on the Amiga scene. Like... Dithell in Space Programmed by: D Ithell Available from; D Ithell It's always a pleasure to
give room in these pages to a product that boasts playability and professionalism in one package. Dithell in Space is one such title which is both entertaining and addictive.
Set over 50 missions, the player takes on the role of the hero of the title, Dithell (presumably major, sergeant or other space adventuring title).
The game is a cross between Jetpac (the old Ultimate classic) and a sideways shoot- 'em-up. For example, the first mission is set on the moon - aliens have invaded and you’ve been sent to clear the little suckers out with a large laser rifle.
Using your jetpac. Move around the landscape blowing the xenomorphs to kingdom 110 MAY 1 994 Bon Appetite Programmed by: Boris Shor Available from; Scribble PD Disk No U233 For connoisseurs of food who wish to bring their culinary talents into the technological age then Bon Appetite could be an ideal cooking companion.
The program is simply a database to store all your recipes on. By entering details of ingredients, their amount, a description of the cooking techniques required and any other details, an extensive computerised cookery book can be built up for easy updating and unfussy presentation.
Just think - no more risking the treasured family recipe book as it sits precanously close come and picking up any bonuses or power-ups along the way - the latter improve the power of your gun and so on.
On completion, you're scooped up by your spacecraft and head into an asteroid belt to blow the rocks to pieces for points with your ship.
It’s this variety in gameplay that gives Dithell in Space an edge over the competition. The only real gripe is the sometimes highly sensitive controls that can send you hurtling feet first into the enemy, or an abyss.
Despite this, with the split-screen two- player game and effective use of graphics and sound as well, this is great value for money and a fun game to play.
Hoi RGB Remix Programmed by: Team Hoi Available from: Graphic F X Disk No AA 046 One of three platform-based games on offer this month. Hoi is by far the most attractive and enjoyable. Originally released as a full-priced game, it has now to the overflowing casserole dish as you add herbs and spices - simply print the database out and have no fear that the original is anywhere near the fruits of its chef's labours.

Featuring a dino in the lead role, the player must move around the varied and interesting landscapes picking up diamonds and generally avoid being stung by bees or cut into pieces by propellers and other varying hazards. Each of the levels is Smooth graphics and smoother game play make Hoi a must-purchase - a superior professional PD product MUSIC DEMO Etaof the ONTH Deural Assault [Produced by: Available from; PD-Soft Disk No 3636 I have been swamped, nay, marooned b music demos this month. After ploughin through all of them, I came to the conclusio that most are not worth the punters' mone
and, more to the point, lack any individw imagination.
Enter Neural Attack from Rage and' th PD and SHAREWARE quite different - one takes you under water, the other through a forest and one through a lethal construction site.
The penultimate level consists of the dino strapping on a jetpac and blasting anything that gets in the way, and the final stage sees your Jurassic dude rushing through a various obstacles too reach the end as everything begins to fall to pieces around him. Threatening to whisk him off down into an abyss.
The only negative that I managed to stumble across was the irritating law of gravity that seemed to plague the game - make your fall too large and it’s bronto burger time as your character dies (the death effects are excellence as well). The problem is that you don't have to fall very far at all.
Despite this shortcoming. Hoi AGA is a charming title which will appeal to adults and kids alike. Recommended.
Techno (Tlerda II Produced by: RamJam Available from: PD-Soft Disk No 3638 Italy is known for its passion and pasta.
Never before have I seen a music player program on the PD that can be described as so... errr... individual.
Coming on strong on two disks. Techno Merda II consists of four “songs" and user is offered a wide selection of interesting stills, anims and 3D ray-tracing, all presented with professional style and flair.
There are precious few computer cliches such as spinning cubes and others - in fact, these have been replaced with spinning Amigas, keyboards and a BP sign, which is an improvement.
While a couple of sections are on the weak side (the fractal piccy as an example), some the others are positively begging for a law suit.
The enim featuring Darth Vader as the head of BP isn't exactly good PR for the company that claims to help the world, but freedom of the PD is everything.
Overall, the producers of this demo seem to accompanying (in some cases, graphic) images. On playing the first, three simply- drawn faces peer back at you from the screen, opening their mouths to sing the words that appear, karaoke-style, at the bottom of the picture.
A mixture of incomprehensible Italian flashes up with the only two English words being particularly well used by the likes of Ice-T, Ice Cube, Cute-E and so on.
This is all funny stuff as a whole - one song that might wipe the grin cringe smirk off the viewer's face is the final track where you are shown a very basic drawing of a singer at a karaoke competition who certainly looks female but after a couple of minutes, turns out explicitly not to be... I’ll leave you to work it out (this program isn’t for kids and could also understandably be highly offensive to some of our readers).
A prime example of Euro-tra$ h, Techno Medra II is a relatively harmless and often amusing title simply due to the badness of the whole proceedings. Recommended only if you are a glutton for punishment.
Have looked around and sussed out what works and what doesn’t... other less observant programmers, take note.
ITIand 2DDD Programmed by: Cygnus Software Available from: Scribble PD Disk No V239 Call me cynical but I've never seen much point in fractals as part of computer entertainment. One pretty much looks the same as another and there is only so much you can do with them - take hard drugs and look at the screen for half an hour.
Mand 2000 stands out from the usual fractal crowd due to its ease of use and many features. Presented with a simple pre-generated image, the user is able to choose from many different facilities provided by the large selection of pull-down menus.
If you want to zoom in for more detail, simply double click on the area you want blown up. On the other hand, choose from one of the many zoom options which include “blob" and “awesome” to see what the computer can come up with.
The computer will redraw the fractal and [ailing all PD librarigs... ...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 labeled? I promise I'll at least look at your work.
Adam Phillips, PD submissions, Amiga Computing.
Europa House, Adlington Park.
Macclesfield SK10 4NP fill in the details, it takes a little time but considering the logistics involved, it's understandable.
For those pop video directors among you who like the look of a good fractal or two pulsating on the screen, a Movie Record option has been kindly included.
You can view the sequence back and cycle through the colours or alternatively, change the palette for differing effects.
While there may not be much point to the proceedings, this is surprisingly fun and satisfying to use. I am a cynic no more.
Sonic Attach Produced by: Dual Crew Shining Available from: PD-Soft Disk No 3645 Sonic 3 is upon us - well, if you've got a Mega Drive. Otherwise the blue-skinned character who can boast being recognised 99 times out of a 100 by the public at large has become unofficially involved with this music player, courtesy of Dual Crew Mjniiumm MAY 1994 Shining. Booting up the first disk of several presents the viewer with some visually appealing images and relatively sound piece of music.
Sonic is apparent in most screens and is well rendered if a little inaccurate in places.
The first feature for you to interact with is the mix-e-load program which allows you to mix your own beats, rhythms and bass from a large selection in memory.
This is actually pretty good fun and to be honest, is the best part of the package.
Eventually, you’ll find yourself confronted with a large list of music tracks to play and listen to.
These are all pretty average unfortunately but Sonic, the raver, dances his way around the screen to add to the frivolity.
Despite the lack of musical greatness, Sonic Attack does offer enough to while away the time with its good looks and slick programming.
Hotkti Programmed by: Michael Pratt Available from: Michael Pratt Another epic story makes an appearance on the humble pages of this ever-so-mod- est computer magazine. No, this title isn’t about boxing or how many sequels you can make before punters stop paying the cinema entrance fee - it’s about something far more important, something that reflects the true heroism of the renaissance, post modern, new age... Blob?
That’s right, a tiny planet many large and ridiculously huge light years away sits quite inconspicuously, called Blob. Aliens have turned up and wish to conquer this humble planet, with a modest population of estate agents and interior designers.
But, no, wait, yet a-bloody-gain there is another upstart who can save the day.
Who can clutch the reins of honour and courage - Rocky... It's presented in sideways scrolling plat- former with graphics akin to those found in The Fury of the Furries (reviewed in this mag a couple of months ago). The player must move Rocky round the screen collecting letters that make up the word EXIT. On doing so, a portal will open and you move on to the next level.
The adventure begin in the dungeons where the hero of all heroes is being kept.
This prison must be escaped from to move into the alien’s lair where the enemy computer must be switched off permanently and the end of game baddie destroyed.
There are 17 stages in all and the title is difficult from the word go with various traps and other cunning devices blocking your way. The controls aren't great - they feel a little unresponsive when it comes to jumping exactly the way you want to. On a couple of occasions, I dreaded some obstacles because it felt a little too luck driven.
Overall though. Rocky is a challenging game with good sound effects and reasonable graphics. There are enough novelties and skill testing to make it a worthy purchase (the price of a disk and two stamps). Recommended.
Dqnamic Skies Programmed by: Patrick Debaumarche Available from: PD Soft Disk No V1265 Dynamic Skies is a trip into the world of astronomy where us humans realise how mortal and rather small we really are compared to the rest of the known galaxy.
This program is a highly useful toolbox that gives details to the differing planets, nebulae and stars within a rather large range of this planet. Provided are a myriad of options and features to help you with your astral studies.
Suppose you have an urge in the middle of the night to take a closer look at that hulking sphere. Jupiter, from the comfort of your own window. Enter Dynamic Skies to show the rise set times of Jupiter. With a click of a button, you'll be presented with a simulated sky at the designated time.
If you’re still not happy, it's possible to animate the proceedings to see exactly what time is ideal to see the planet in all its full glory.
The package is easy to use if a little dull visually to the untrained eye. The update is rather slow when zooming in and out on a particular point even on the A1200, which can

universe Is the limit with Dynamic SkleS, a comprehensive
toolbox to aid you with your star watching lead to much
drumming of the fingers in impatience. The good points by far
outweigh the weak elements though. This for beginner and expert
alike.
It’s a great program and deserves the attention of your eyes and your wallet.

SURF NINJAS© NEW LINE CINEMA CORP. Psygnosis's high-tech shoot-em-up, Microcosm, infects the CD32 Ryder Cup Golf X On guard m Acid Software, the team behind the highly popular Skidmarks, have a new release lined up to arrive this summer. Guardian is a fast action 3D shoot-'em-up which will be available on the CD32 and A1200.
It features some very smooth and fast 3D polygons and borrows heavily from the Super Nintendo classic, StarWing. Guardian will let the playe.r fly wherever they want and have the ability to see the action from any viewpoint, A zooming camera will enable the game to be viewed from any angle and from any distance. This feature is almost certain to make it onto the CD32 version, but is unlikely to find its way onto the A1200 version.
Guardian has only been in production for six months and is nearing completion. Expect a lengthy preview in System very soon.
QOQQQ Team 17 rack 'em up Not a company to rest on their laurels. Team 17 are back with a brand new budget game. Following their recent success with revamped classics like Alien Breed and Project X, as well as original products such as Qwak and F17 Challenge, Team 17 are about to release Arcade Pool.
It is, of course, a pool simulator for one or more players, which features excellent animation, smooth movement of the balls plus authentic digitised pool sounds and crowd applause effects. Options include the chance to play eight-ball, nine-ball and speed pool.
One outstanding feature of Arcade Pool is that it will detect and use the AGA chipset for an enhanced display during play. At a price of just £9.99, Arcade Pool offers tremendous value for money, especially when it has been in development a lot longer than your average full-priced game.
Computer industry? Well, that’s what these pages are tor - to keep you up-to-date me what, where and why PLOVER ONE !_ n. rrrrrrt I rrrrrrl I , ' Yvtt9f I _ fsm:] B ij- JL-hJ In Team 17's Arcade Pool, you can play US pool Team 17 have always given gamers a grand deal when it comes to the pricing of their games, and their forthcoming CD releases are no different. Two brilliant value-for-money game packs should be in the shops by the time you read this.
Twice as nice at half the price The first pack contains Alien Breed: Special Edition, the fantastic arcade style blast-’em-up, and Qwak. The superb one or two-player arcade platform romp. The second pack incorporates Project X, the award-winning classic shoot-'em-up, and FI7 Challenge, the fast- paced budget racer.
Both packs are available at the superb price of only £24.99. CD32 owners who've been whinging about the lack of decent games for their machine can now stop worrying and start buying.
Also coming up from Team 17 is Body Blows, and it's going to hit the CD32 in some style. Entitled, Ultimate Body Blows, this enhanced version of the beat-'em-up classic will sport stunning new background graphics, improved gameplay, superb 16-track digital music and 23 characters in total. What looks like being the definitive Amiga beat-'em-up should be available now at £29.99. Bargain Daze This April, Daze Marketing release two new Silmarils games - Ishar 3 and Robinson's Requiem. The Ishar series has attracted an extraordinary following over the last two years. Neither Ishar or Transarctica
has been released as budgets yet.
They are still full-priced games, in full-priced boxes, but Daze are offering them direct to System readers for just £4.99 each. Daze realise that there are people out there who still haven't seen the RPGs that Silmarils make, and reckon that once they've seen these two games, gamers will be coming back for more.
• The hype about Sega and their new 32-bit Saturn machine is
continuing to rise.
The Saturn was expected to be a CD-ROM-based system with the possibility of a cartridge port.
Not only have Sega decided to include this cartridge port but a second, cartridge-only machine code-named Jupiter will also appear and will be released in Japan at the same time as the Saturn in November - although Jupiter has still not been officially announced.

Into the next Millennium After the success of Diggers and Brutal Sports Football, Cambridge-based software house Millennium have released details of their forthcoming products for late 1994 The first one to hit the shelves will be Mr Magoo. This licence was acquired from United Pictures of America and promises to be extremely faithful to the cartoons. The unique blend of cartoon anima tion and platform action is planned for release in September.
The sequel to the smash hit Brutal Sports Football is marked down for release in October. Entitled Brutal Soccer, this sports sim will feature sly punches, blatant kicks and. According to a Millennium spokesman, is "guaranteed to make Graham Taylor's vocabulary seem appropriate for a vicar's tea party".
Also scheduled for an October release is Neural World. Essentially a PC product, this will appear on the Amiga and will demonstrate that a computer can duplicate a basic brain. Your task is to teach creatures born underground how to survive.
Unlike previous products, the characters in the game will actually learn, and you can see their brains working to prove it. Their mission is to travel around the world visiting strange new regions, which are all based on styles drawn from art masterpieces.
Millennium's Pinkie and James Pond 3 are now nearing completion and should be available in June July. All in all, Millennium look as though they'll have their hands full through the year right up to Christmas.
SvsiEm Lechnologn 1 This section of the news will keep you up to date on forthcoming games technology from the major players in the computer industry In this section of the news we list the pieces of software that have been doing the business for us over the last few months, and tell you why they should be In your games collection Settlers This wonderful "God" game from Blue Byte could well go down as a classic. While it contains elements that liken it to Populous, it's not a clone. Settlers stands up on its own two feet because it has great playability coupled with neat graphics and an
especially user-friendly game system.
Cannon Fodder I love Cannon Fodder and so should you. If yod still haven't bought it then I must stand up and question your state of mind. Sensible Software seem to go on from Strength to strength; Cannon Fodder is one of the most playable games ever and also one of the most fun. A fast moving shoot-’em-up of the highest order.
The scores on the doors Dur brand new and revolutionary System score system explained As part of the new look and feel of the software section we have taken a fresh look at the way we score our reviews. In our opinion, review scores have lost their context as percentages; some products have been receiving scores which were only a few per* centage points short of perfection, when in truth the products were only marginally above average.
OK. So the scores might seem unnaturally low at first but that's only because other scoring systems tend to be on the high side and perhaps not as comprehensive or honest as they could be.
In the long run you'll receive a more concise and reader-oriented review that's geared towards the 0-20 .This is given to the lowest of the low 21-30......An all-round poor game that may have a single saving grace 31-40 Just below the average, perhaps let down by a few indiscretions.
41-55 Games of this score are roughly average with 50 being a perfectly average score.
Skidmarks Acid Software's racer has got gorgeous graphics, superb sound, is highly playable and unbelievably addictive. It's a very polished racer that totally destroys all of its competitors. I could go on for hours praising this game, but I really only need say two words - buy it.
56*66 This is an above average game and is worth buying. For this reason it would be awarded the BRONZE award.
Simon the Sorcerer Adventure Soft's game is cram-packed with puzzles, funny quips and silly asides. While it’s a title that you're not meant to take too seriously, it will give you plenty to think about if you're to complete it. Simon the Sorcerer is a very large, well thought-out graphical adventure that'll keep you happy and out of harm's way in the land of giants, fairies and dwarves.
67-77 A game of high quality that we have no reservation in recommending. Anything of this ilk would be given the SILVER award.
Man Utd Premier League Champions I’ve thrown away my copies of Sensible Soccer and Goal because Krisalis have created an ultimately more satisfying football game that will appeal to the true football fan.
The graphics are nicely presented and highly realistic.
Couple this with its level of playability and addiction and you've-got a hell of a game on your hands. Goal and Sensible Soccer fans will want to have this game's babies.
Buy it and float to football heaven.
78-89 A brilliant title. Definitely worth buying and almost the definitive of its kind. This standard of game would receive the GOLO award.
Labyrinth of Time The bottom line is that Labyrinth is a 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 the CD32 because this is a title which starts to truly show a little of the machine's capability.

Microcosm After three years of development, Psygnosis unveil their first title in the CD revolution. Simon Clays Innks inwardly at the miniaturised wnrld of Microcosm INTRODUCTION STORYLINE Set on a harsh, dark, future world called Bodor, Microcosm traces the underworld activities of two rival corporations.
Both Cybertech Inc and Axiom are at the centre of practically everything that occurs on the planet. They both have large mining concerns which dig further into the belly of the planet, systematically raping her of anything precious.
The majority of the planet is uninhabitable, with a high proportion of the population living in a very confined space.
Poisonous gases belch forth from the bowels of the earth, a deadly by-product of cut-throat mining operations, Life is cheap under the corporation regime with little concern for social conditions. In fact, the only thing that matters to the corporations is the title of Corpl.
Just recently, Cybertech's grip has tightened around the prestigious title, and little by little Axiom are falling by the wayside.
President of Axiom, Argon Stark, is desperate to re-address this disappointing situation, and investigates some rather aggressive methods of correcting matters.
It's only following a meeting with one of Stark's right-hand men that a more subtle means of ending the regime is formulated. Stark is introduced to a doctor, who has for some time been experimenting with miniaturisation. He claims that he can send a human being inside of another using his breakthrough in technology.
So the seed of an idea is set. Infiltrate Cybertech's headquarters and inject their president with a mind-controlling virus called greyM.
This would have a back-up system of designer viruses which would attack the vital organs if Cybertech try to meddle with GreyM.
The plan is successfully implemented, but during its inception Cybertech become suspicious, and realise that Axiom have sent an intruder into their President.
A decision has to be taken immediately. After a frantic meeting. Cybertech executives decide to inject a craft with which to fight the assassin viruses.
A panoramic view of the city 120 "n »• SILICON CINEMA Microcosm is probably the most impressive-looking piece of software ever to grace any Commodore machine. The first thing that greets you when you insert the disc is a 400-second introduction sequence. Rendered on Silicon Graphics machines and featuring a cinematic sequence of ray-traced images, Microcosm is a joy to watch.
The combination of CD sound and superbly constructed images really does put you in mind of a sci-fi movie. Shifting from moody street scenes to hi-tech robotic automatons and helicopters, it's totally absorbing.
The intro also combines real live action sequences which run alongside computer graphics, and add an extra dimension of realism to the piece.
Once into the game you'll find that the play area graphics are of the highest standard too. As you journey around the internal organs via vein systems, you'll be treated to a ray-traced version of Gray's Anatomy.
After the completion of each level you'll see more animated sequences, again rendered using Silicon Graphics and Amiga technology. Even the different craft that___ you guide through the body have been rendered and texture mapped to add that extra edge.
On a visual level. Microcosm is second to none and, its state-of-the- art look puts it in pole position in the graphical race.

an optical eye at the gameplay. Microcosm launches itself into
six minutes and 40 seconds of stunning introduction.
This Bladerunner-inspired sequence is probably the most sophisticated, cinematic piece of computer animation to emerge on a machine for the home.
The idea for the introduction was the brainchild of lead visualiser Jim Bowers. Following a brainstorming session, the nucleus of an idea was born. Loosely based on the "inside the body" films like Inner Space and Fantastic Voyage, the team started initial design work on the Amiga. Then transferred everything across to Silicon Graphics machines.
Using £10,000+ Indego systems, they set about creating the world of Botor. As the footage rolls, the first thing to greet the eye is a street scene.
This incredible section of animation, which features a futuristic truck rolling by and lasts under ten seconds, features 241 models, seven different light sources and over 85, 331 polygons.
Running Softimage on the Indego, a 3D model starts its life as a wireframe skeleton which can be manipulated and animated to ensure that routines are correct.
The next step is to fill the object and show that it has three dimensions. From here the image has textures and added detail like symbols or camouflage applied.
At this point we have a textured 3D image that has no shadow or light source, so these are applied, and from here the image can be pasted onto another image.
Much of the game involves live action sequences Mike Simpson of Pysgnosis explained the technique employed: "The live actors were filmed against a blue screen and then into modelled scenes. For example, in the lab scene in the intro only the actors are real - the whole lab is computer generated."
Using the same technology as used in Lawnmower Man, Microcosm had to be reworked from its original FM Towns format. As Mike told me: “The game had to be completely re-written, new and seriously clever code had to be developed to exploit the CD32 hardware."
Much of this technology also went into the reproduction of the game interiors, like the vein walls. Mike was on hand with the biology lesson: "A tunnel was modelled from polygons and a vein texture wrapped onto the surface. Lamps were set behind the point of view so the scene would be lit in the foreground and fade away into the darkness."
After eight months of re-coding Microcosm for the CD32, work has started on follow up projects, Mike showed me the direction Psygnosis are going in: "This is an ongoing process for us now. We've learned a lot since Microcosm. Scavenger 4 (which is initially on the FM Towns machine, but will undoubtedly be released on the CD32) is more interactive. The third game in the series will be even more interactive."
The future certainly looks much brighter for Pysgnosis's CD plans than the grim world they portray in Microcosm. Indeed, when I asked Mike about the future of games storage systems, he had this to say about their cartridge counterparts: "CDs are the way forward, and besides, you can't get 500Mb on a cart!"
121 When it comes to aural stimulation, Pysgnosis left nothing to chance, and, wanting to utilise the power of CD, enlisted the talent of ex-Yes keyboard player Rick Wakeman.
As with the graphics, the noise that emanates from the CD32 is indeed something to behold. Personally, I don’t remember a time when I've heard such a quality soundtrack from a title.
A montage of ambient riffs and beefy dance beats, the Microcosm soundtrack is a pulsating and interesting departure from the norm.
EQ Pysgnosis's first full CD title is a very tricky product to measure or assess. This is because there are two separate entities that exist around each other throughout the entirety of play.
On the one hand you have the cinematic introduction sequence and the sections that roll around the actual play (like level completion or death of your craft), and on the other the gameplay itself.
The first thing to say is that as far as ray- traced sequences are concerned, then I Microcosm definitely has it. That's all very well for the first couple of times you turn the CD on, or want to show off to friends, But, once this has worn off and you start jumping into the play, what are you left with?
The answer, again, isn't that cut and dried.
As you first start your epic journey around the body, you are indeed craving for more of those colourful artery walls, and it's even fun watching your own submersible split into a thousand pieces (causing the man you're trying to save massive internal bleeding).
A virus is an infectious particle consisting of nucleic acid (DNA or RNA) enclosed in a protein shell.
Viruses are acellular and able to function and reproduce only if they can invade a living cell to use the cell's system to replicate themselves.
The healthy human body responds by producing an antiviral protein, interferon, which prevents the infection spreading to adjacent cells.
Viruses are most commonly found in seas and lakes, with between five and ten million per millilitre at most sites tested, with up to 250 million per millilitre in a polluted lake.
Among the more common viruses are canine distemper, chickenpox and yellow fever.
Discovered in 1971, viroids are even smaller than viruses, and consist of one single strand of nucleic acid. They cause such things as stunted growth in plants and some rare diseases in animals and humans.
The origin of the virus is still unclear, but it is generally believed that they are degenerate forms of life, derived from nucleic acid that has broken away from higher organisms.
However, humans being humans, we become accustomed to things very quickly. So, once we've witnessed some spectacular visuals, the euphoria doesn't last for long and we need stimulation from the playability.
Microcosm is hard, in fart it's very hard. At times it's too tough, and becomes infuriating when you keep getting stuck at the same point. But that's shoot-'em-ups for you.
As a game, it plays adequately enough, with plenty of blasting action to keep you happy. If I had criticisms, they would be that Microcosm had more power-ups and weapons to choose, and that the internal walls that you guide your ship around had a collision detector.
In terms of product for the CD32, Microcosm is unmissable. It's not incredible, and it's not going to go down as a benchmark title. But in comparison to what else is available for Commodore's new console, it's streets ahead.
As a footnote, it's worth mentioning that as reviewers, we get to see a lot of product, and tend to get a little blase about software.
As an experiment we left the CD32 and Microcosm with some unwitting (normal) people, and they absolutely loved it.

* II t H l 1 * II PHOTon cannon vsoo One of the most Important
points in K240 is to have a docent-sired assault fleet because
otherwise you'll get hammered by the opposing alien forces The
only moment where the sound goes into overdrive is when you
fight against your alien opponent, and World War III explodes
across your speakers. But as with the graphics, K240 doesn't
really require unbelievable sound effects due to its nature -
although a few more effects might not have gone amiss.
K240 is a fairly sparse in the sonics department.
There are several bleeps and bloops occurring every so often to keep your ears active. The best sounds are the smatterings of female sampled speech, which are triggered when an event occurs.
Ooooo m The Terran Empire governs a vast area of space. Over 1,000 worlds have been inhabited and are home to countless billions of humans, as well as a minor population of alien races discovered during the great expansion in the 23rd Century.
A large imperial company called Tetracorp started out in 2221 manufacturing scout ships and sensory equipment for the Imperial fleet. Its assets grew and it soon realised the potential of space exploration and asteroid mining.
It began developing new techniques for extracting and transporting rare ores mined in the depths of space, which were so successful that by the year 2280 it had grown to own and fill the entire industrial world of Barnard Five.
By the middle of the 24th Century it had cornered the market in mining franchises.
It offered packages to anyone with the ambition to take over one of the asteroid fields, known as fragmented sectors, being discovered every year on the frontier of the Empire.
In the year 2380, Sector K240 was made available for colonisation by Tetracorp.
K240 is one of the fragmented sectors and occupies a cube of space 50 light years across. As a Tetracorp franchise holder, you have claimed a section of K240 and are ready to begin your mining operations in the asteroid fields.

Rnrrm r difficuliv: mi j NEXT PIPY END The type of game that K240 is doesn't really demand state-of-the-art graphics and to be honest it works a lot better with basic sprites and backgrounds.
There are two main screens which you flick between when playing. The first is the main asteroid view screen. When you begin the game you are presented with a 3D representation of your asteroid, showing rocky terrain and the sole building in your colony.
As you start to build your colony up, scaffolding will appear and eventually, depending on the size of what you're building, will turn into structures. These structures are all presented in a There are thousands of Asteroid, composed of rock and iron, orbiting the Sun. Most lie in a belt between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter, and are thought to be fragments left over from the formation of the solar system.
About 100,000 may exist, but their total mass is only a few hundredths of the mass of the Moon. Asteroids of note include Ceres, the largest known asteroid (9,400km in diameter) and Vesta, which is the brightest as seen from Earth.
The first asteroid was discovered by the Italian astronomer Guiseppe Piazzi at the Palermo Observatory, Sicily, on new year's day in 1801.
Basic colour scheme, but any futurist would be proud of the actual shape of the constructions.
Your colony looks rather pale and flat when compared to that of your alien opponents who tend to have much more extravagant constructions, but that's not really important when you're obsessed with completely destroying them in the first place.
The second view is the asteroid field screen which provides you with a map of all the asteroids. The map, at first, is predominately grey. Somewhere on the screen will be your asteroid and around it will be a black circle.
This circle is "known" space and as you progress and explore, the grey map will gradually turn black.
Im-m Trying to find a game to compare K240 to is quite hard.
You could in effect call it a "god" game and compare it to Sim City, but that's not set in space. I suppose it would be stupid of me not to compare it to its predecessor, Utopia, but the gameplay does differ slightly.
Utopia was reviewed way back in November 1991 and received a stupendous score of 93 per cent and a bright and shiny Gamer Gold award. The game is pitched in-between Populous and Sim City, fighting an opponent while you attempt to develop a viable city with all its attendant problems of taxation, population control and crime.
K240 is different in the sense that you have to build up a colony and simply destroy your opponent to win the game.
3f7yp o~ This is a damn fine space strategy game and a lot better than its predecessor. Utopia. The controls and buttons don't take long to learn and before you know it you're transported to a world of asteroids, mining, space battles and destruction.
OK. So it might not have spectacular graphics or sound, but it has it where it counts and that is in the gameplay and addiction departments.
As first it all seems too easy, but after you've captured a couple of asteroids you'll need all your brainpower to cope with the forthcoming problems and events.
I'm finding it really hard to fault K240, but I suppose if you play enough it will eventually get a bit unvaried. This will take a long time to happen because the later aliens are incredibly tough and will demand a lot of experience to beat.
Gremlin's space strategy is a truly engrossing game that will keep you awake until the early hours and I heartily recommend it as this month's game to get your mitts on.
«n iih Psygnosis have joined the recent throng of adventure releases with this offering.
Tina Hackett goes on the trail nf Innocent until Caught s anti-hero, Jack T Ladd 0dventure games are a popular genre and many titles are released constantly, all clamouring for a place in our collections. Psygnosis, however, are relatively lew to the adventure game scene, their only other similar offering being the excellent Hired Guns, a 3D, horizontal parallax effort set from a first-person perspective.
Developers DMA Design were the brawn behind Psygnosis's first attempt but for this release they've called upon the skills of Divide by Zero. A two-man development team. Divide By Zero have tried to create a game inspired by a more theatrical view point but with total player involvement.
INTRODUCTION We find ourselves in the future, on the planet Tayte taking on the character of Jack T Ladd. His name actually gives you a good idea as to the main theme to the game.
As an average Jack the lad, his character traits are all those that you would find in your stereotypical lad, plus, in this case, tax evasion and all manner of misdemeanours against the state.
His indiscretions have been spotted by the IRDS (the Interstellar Revenue Decimation Service - a corrupt and powerful federation department) who are none too pleased with Mr Ladd’s activities and give him 28 days to come up with the money to compensate for his wrong-doings.
Punishment for failing to do this results in some unpleasant form of torture, so Jack heads for the nearest bar planet to drown his sorrows, armed only with his tax demand. You, taking on the role of Jack, need to visit all manner of locations and interact with the various characters to raise the necessary cash.
As Innocent until Caught is your typical point 'n' click adventure it is inevitably going to be compared to releases like Monkey Island and its sequel. The game does to some extent try to emulate this title in that humour is incorporated at every available opportunity, but while Monkey Island was witty, Innocent is at times crude.
First impressions seem to suggest that you're embarking on the thinking man's Leisure Suit Larry, with its seedy locations and style of humour, but whereas Leisure Suit Larry was a title designed for the odd giggle, this one seems to try to hide its blatant double entendre-ridden street humour under the guise of a serious, atmospheric adventure.
The jokes such as "Are you over 21? - What, years or centimetres?" Wear a little thin after a while. The recent hit Simon the Sorcerer wins over Innocent both graphically and in humour, and Beneath the Steel Sky compares more favourably in both its atmosphere and its puzzles, which require a lot more thought than Innocent until Caught's rather linear approach.
4I§Y!§)1 IBM Iwn -1 I II _ %A* «tit EHI The soundtrack has obviously been composed to complement the gloomy, futuristic atmosphere and does to some extent do this.
However, it is so lacking in appeal that reaching for the volume control is the only viable option.
I jfi It soon becomes disappointingly apparent that the game lacks any sound effects. The game would have benefited enormously from the inclusion of some form of effects rather than the dire accompanying tune.
All walks of Ufa are within this game. Ladies of the night may help or hinder you 30% A storyline based around tax evasion is certainly a novel one for a computer game but throughout history the notorious stories of tax- related problems and evasion are in abundance.
Tracing it right back to the tales of Robin Hood, one of the oldest cases of taxation problems occurred when King John charged his peasant subjects over the odds in tax, Modern times are also ripe with cases of tax evasion, especially those of the rich and famous. More recently you may remember the entertainer Ken Dodd was in the headlines for allegedly defrauding the Inland Revenue. He was acquitted in July1989.
Others have not been so fortunate. Lester Piggott, the successful British Jockey, was jailed for three years in October 1987, after admitting a huge £3.1 million tax evasion swindle. Innocents' theme plays on our fears of the future, of misuse of governmental powers and on a topic that affects us all, rich or poor.
Innocent until Caught is a visually stunning game and a great deal of detail has gone into the backdrops. The graphics are in a style that rather than trying to create total realism opts for a more stylised, sketched look.
This works well in creating the futuristic feel of the game. The layout of the screen is clearly presented and so vital action is never missed. The auto-mapper screen becomes a very useful feature especially when you need to make a hasty exit.
However, the inventory screen has been badly designed in that you simply place all collected objects on the panel. After a while the panel becomes very cluttered and some of the objects become obscured so it is easy to miss some of your inventory.
The screen alsoupdates at a painfully slow rate at certain points in the game which spoils the flow and becomes frustrating.
_ While Innocent until Caught is in the main a blatantly mediocre adventure game, the many locations and film-based style of story add interest to this title. The sub-plots and episodic style of the game work well and provide some variety.
Its longevity is marred by the puzzle element which is a little too straightforward. For example, a character will tell you an object they want, you will find it and then be rewarded with an object another character wants.
The control system also leaves a lot to be desired. The mouse pointer needs to be placed very precisely before it will let you carry out any actions. It is also very slow to recognise what you wish to dick on. The style of humour, although an unusual novelty at first, becomes rather tedious and verges on the immature.
The interaction with other characters is at times a little predictable and slow. Innocent although not highly original in its approach or gameplay, does have its worthwhile moments and does evoke some feeling of excitement when you think you're on the verge of discovering another clue.
Mir, After a series of successful board game conversions, Gremlin are back with the second in the Hern Quest series. Here Simon Clays enters the fantasy world of the Legacy of Sorasil ack in the late 80s. Hasbro's Hero ¦ wM Quest board game series bridged I the gap between traditional die- I PI rolling gaming and the more surreal world of the role player.
Hero Quest combined a complicated system of rules with the more contemporary board game philosophies. This fusion proved to be an instant success, and Gremlin Graphics of Sheffield seized the opportunity to produce a computer version.
An exact replica, the computer variation set you on a series of missions, but rather than a "dungeon master" negotiating your fate, the computer handled your 30 isometric decisions.
Data disks were added and awards were collected, but then everything went quiet on the fantasy front. Now. After two years in development, a whole new series of adventures with a totally revised play system are set for launch, the first being the Legacy of Sorasil.
Like its predecessor, Legacy of Sorasil is viewed from a 3D isometric perspective. This method of display is not only effective for employing the game's Dungeons and Dragons style rules, but also gives it that extra edge in appearance.
The animation is well handled using clearly defined character sprites which leaves the user in no doubt as to who is who. While they're a rather dichM set of extras from a Tolkien book, the style suits the mood of the plot.
Each scenario places you in a different location, so you'll never find the landscapes repetitious or boring. For example, the first level places you in the gloom of a vampire's barrow, as opposed to further challenges which find you in forests, marshes and castles.
The legions of darkness are also in vast abundance and like the scrolling backdrops, vary from location to location. Likewise, all the varying denizens of evil have different combat animations.
Apart from physical combat animations, Legacy of Sorasil features a whole host of animations for use of magic. While limited in the early levels, as you .progress to the higher stages the screen comes alive with various spells, both from your battle-weary characters and the foes you face.
The once great empire of Rhia lies dying under a vicious stranglehold of evil. The land is overrun with corruption and pestilence; harvests have failed, livestock lies diseased and dying, and even the most arcane of magics has failed to halt the spread of evil.
In a bid to stop the malignant curse which haunts the land, Alamon the Mystic, noble sage of Rhia, uses his skills and detects the source of power that is the root cause While unable to pinpoint its exact emanation, Alamon comes to the realisation that the evil can be eradicated, but it will take the power of several long lost artefacts which are rich in power.
Beyond the Shadow Mountains lies the land of Kolchoth. Once a place where sultans and demi-gods resided in palatial splendour, the land lies in decadent ruin, a sad reflection of its former magnificence.
This once royal country was home to two ancient talismans, each of which is capable of reversing some of the evil. Beyond Kolchoth, in the land of Garathor, lies the amulet of Tambor-Rin, a powerful healing tool and necessary for Alamons’ plan.
To defeat the evil powers he also requires the might of the Oracle Stone- Legend has it that even deeper into the lands of darkness, in Iron-Wood Forest, the stone lies.
Alamon realises the task in hand is no easy one, and sets out to find warriors and mages capable of overcoming such hardship.
After searching the length and breadth of the country, Alamon finds eight brave folk. However, only four can be selected to embark on the perilous journey.
H3EB TT?
While there aren't too many titles that have employed this 30 isometric viewpoint, a few software houses have attempted this style, some more effectively than others.
Probably the definitive title in this category is Krisalis's Shadow- lands (Amiga Computing April '92) which was given the old Gamer Gold award. Others include the fairly average Legend and the outstanding Cadaver from the Bitmap Brothers.

• ™ u "V One of the sub-plots places you in a boggy marsh, trying
to negotiate your way through its murky depths, fight and
uncover a hidden relic Many of the influences in titles of this
nature come from the original ideas of J R Tolkien. John Ronald
Tolkien was an English writer born in 1892.
He created the fictional world of Middle Earth which featured two major works, his 1937 classic. The Hobbit, and his epic trilogy The Lord of the Rings written from 1954 to
1955.
His lands were populated by strange peoples like hobbits.
Dwarves and goblins. Tolkien's works developed to cult status in the ‘60s, and due to his popularity he had many imitators.
At Oxford University he was professor of Anglo Saxon from 1924-45, and Merton Professor of English until 1959. Tolkien died in 1973, without really knowing the full extent he would have on the worlds of role-playing and video gaming.
Legacy of Sorasil contains two very different ways in which the sound can be utilised. You can play to the accompaniment of a rustic tune or choose to use the FX option.
While the tune has a very dire dowdy edge to it, it does contain a great deal of atmosphere and mood that offsets the visual aspect of the game very nicely.
Conversely, you can opt to use the sound effects which give that extra dimension of real ity to combat, as swords clash with a samples crunch and spells boom as they rain down on the recipient. Both aspects of the sonics within SILVER

While it's not a major criticism, it's my personal opinion that the sound would have been that bit more special if the programmers could have involved the two elements together.
However, this Utopian ideal may fall flat on its face as the standard of sound and sample independently is very high.
It's worth remembering that because of memory restrictions, had the two been integrated then the standard that has been reached may have dropped drastically.
GwGtfEJQ-«i 53 G: unbc:. I myy v V G?° t This first venture in the Hero Quest Masters series is leaps and bounds ahead of its older brother, the original Hero Quest. The most obvious major improvement is the combat system.
In the original title when you're involved in a fight to the death the scene cut to a special combat screen. Now, when you're attacked or choose to fight a foe. The action continues in the environment you are exploring, This might seem trivial, but adds both continuity and atmosphere.
Really, there are that many changes from the original that the two are beyond comparison, and you can certainly tell that it's been in development for two years.
Although Legacy of Sorasil is split down into ten different adventures, each one relates to an overall plot. This works exceptionally well, as your characters develop and are awarded extra points to their various attributes.
Legacy is also very easy to pick up, using a point-and-click system in conjunction with the mouse. This is typical of every aspect of Sorasil - generally it's easy to use and even easier to find yourself absorbed within.
This combination of D&D style rules blended in with the visual aspects of combat and spell-casting will make Hero Quest Masters an instant success to RPG lovers.

System CnniHiB Dm ben qua* to exploit the uniqtie advertising medium of Hie computer gane.
Simon Days investigates the issues stirmniMi this newest method nf sdieg your products A H dvertising is everywhere, in every corner of all of our lives. In an average day your senses will be assaulted constantly as you make your way through what some would consider a minefield.
If you walk down any high street in practically any town in Britain today, you can expect to be bombarded from every direction. The most obvious advertisements will be visual stimulation from posters, screens and displays featuring attractive icons and slogans that stick.
In all probability this visual attraction will be supplemented by sounds formed into jingles or tunes that clamp themselves to your consciousness. The bottom line is that if people remember a particular tune or picture and associate it with a product, then this can be deemed a success.
This is the more obvious form of advertising on the street, but there are other ways of penetrating the senses. Supermarkets and fast food chains now use smells to stimulate a purchase. For example, a supermarket without an on-site bakery might deliberately waft an artificially-manufactured smell of fresh bread into the street to get people into the aisles.
However, this is nothing new. Ever since man has had goods to trade he has competed with the next trader to sell them; it is the nature of the beast to advertise in a free market.
Perhaps the biggest innovation for the advertising world was the mass production of the television set.
While the cinema had been a large vehicle for advertis- Qm a ers, it still didn’t grant access t to the home.
Once established in the Dhome, TV advertising grew and became a multi-million pound industry, with a prod- Quct's success and failure not down to its quality, but down to the exposure and success of its advertising campaign.
This has now reached such an intense level that companies now even sponsor pro* £grammes that fit the image W of their particular product.
For example, the ale- M drinking CAMRA member M Inspector Morse is funded by Beamish, the stout manufacturer, whereas programmes such as the weather have sponsorship from companies like Powergen.
But as well as advertising's merits of making people aware of new innovations and products, there is also a darker side.
Such things as misleading product claims and brand stereotyping are two examples of practices that the advertising world's governing bodies, The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) and the Committee of Advertising Practice (CAP) co-ordinate the fight against.
Together they instigate the British Code of Advertising Practice and have gained legislation to rid us of brainwashing techniques like flash advertising.
Banned because of its frighteningly effective method of persuading customers to buy products, this subliminal method places an engram-like image in the brain leaving the customer little or no alternative but to buy.
However, as technology has expanded through the home, so has the advertising potential. Perhaps the greatest growth expansion has been in the home computer market. Here in just short of a decade, prices have crashed as technology has gone through the ceiling.
Graphics, sound and memory chips are now so powerful that complicated images can be rendered and accurate sounds manufactured very quickly and economically.
One of the largest growth areas is in the computer game market, where both youth culture and adults alike sit in front of screens interacting and involved with on-screen sprites. It seems that this audience is a captive market and one which can be targeted extremely accurately using a relatively cheap form of advertising.
One of the first people to spot such potential was Danny Bobroff, whose company Microtime Media are now at the forefront of licence tie-ins and product placing in computer games.
The idea came some years back when Danny, who’s a computer games enthusiast himself, was sat glued to a monitor screen.
"One night I was playing Kick Off. I was a Kick Off freak, and it came to me: There should be proper ads on such things as the side hoardings of the pitch, after that the idea just grew and grew.
"At the time I was working in advertising, and I’d spent a number of years working in the industry examining and developing new mediums to advertise in."
At first, although Danny was completely convinced of the concept, both software houses and manufacturers were dismissive.
“Although I never doubted that computer games would be a successful medium to advertise in, I never knew if I could survive long enough before the idea took off, but I knew someone would succeed."
DISCUSSIONS The first success Microtime Media achieved was between United Biscuits and Millennium Interactive Software. After discussions with brand management for the Penguin biscuit and managing director of Millennium Michael Hayward, a deal was struck.
In the game, one of the objects of your Pond character is to walk over penguins which lie around the levels, and there are also loading animations which feature a selection of the aquatic biscuits.
At the time Millennium were a relatively small developer, and involvement with a strong brand added promotional weight and a larger audience to Millennium's James Pond Robocod character.
Keith Smith of Millennium explains how the tie-up came into being. "The initial idea was given to us by Danny Bobroff of Microtime Media. He'd lined up United Biscuits and told us that they were interested in reaching a certain age group via a games medium.
James Pond just happened to be reaching exactly that same targeted group."
Being the first game ever to feature a product tie-in, James Pond 2 was an experiment that was under the microscope not only of the companies involved, but the whole of the fast-moving consumer goods and software industries alike.
Fortunately for both Millennium and United Biscuits.
Pond was a tremendous success, having now reacheo the million sales mark over just about every format conceivable.
This all sounds extremely straightforward, but there were slight hitches and compromises during production on both sides, as Keith explains.
"Once the tie-up had been agreed, the graphics had to added. This meant that certain demands from the client were not possible, due to the complexity of the programming."
However, compromises were found and it materialised that as a promotional idea for the Penguin brand, United Biscuits were extremely happy.
Advertising The benefits to a company that spends vast quantities of money researching its consumers were that this method of below-the-line advertising allowed them to reach a finely targeted audience.
A measure of the success has been the number of subsequent developments which feature licence tie- ups. Certainly companies like Microtime Media and Danny Bobroff don't have the same problems convincing manufacturers of the massive potential of advertising within this framework.
Since the birth of the idea with the Robocod concept there have been many follow up tie-ins, quite a few the brainchild of Mr Bobroff, Most of the major players in the software industry have now had games which feature some form of advertising tie-up. Although Microtime Media haven't been responsible for all of the tie-ins. There's quite a few famous games which Danny has been responsible for the advertising aspect of.
United Biscuits featured again in Olympic Gold; Pepsico and Duckhams Oil featured in Formula 1 Grand Prix; and perhaps the most famous of all is the Chupa- Chups lollipop tie in with Gremlin's Zool. Although only the sweet level featured advertising for the lollipop company, it worked extremely well.
So successful was the Zool and Chupa-Chups relationship that plans are afoot for some heavyweight promotions. As Gremlin's Steve McKevitt told me: “It worked so well that Chupa-Chups European promotion for 1994 will incorporate Zool and Zool world as a key element. As we speak retail and consumer promotions are now being planned."
Another one of Microtime's successes was the Ocean and Walkers Crisps tie up. Using the Quavers brand and the Colin Curly character, Ocean devised two complete puzzle games.
Both Pushover and its younger brother One Step Beyond put the crisp-loving Colin on a quest for his favourite snack, and as Danny states: "It was a whole new games engine that carefully wrapped puzzle play with advertising as Colin attempted to reach the Quaver zone."
Since this advertising revolution, software houses themselves have been quick to approach manufacturers with ideas for tie-ups.
One of the most successful direct tie-ups is Gremlin's Lotus trilogy. This slick, scrolling racing game featured two of Lotus's most prestigious cars. While Gremlin had a very fast, detailed set of codes, they felt the game needed more, as Steve McKevitt explained: HIGH PERFORMANCE "It was our idea to link the product with Lotus, we felt it would benefit from the involvement of a real high performance car manufacturer, and let's face it if Lotus 2 had been called split-screen racer, people wouldn't have identified with it."
The tie in with Lotus enabled Gremlin to use imagery and artwork of real cars as well as being able to use useful information regarding performance.
As part of the deal, Lotus supplied promotions featuring the actual cars, and in return Gremlin had to follow a few stipulations.
As Steve told me: "The only parameters Lotus laid down was that they did not want the cars to be smashed up during play. So in this game if a car leaves the track it bounces back into play, rather than exploding."
Others who have previously majored their attentions on film and television advertising have been quick to spot the potential that computer games offer.
As Richard Robson, director of JAC Publicity and Marketing, points out: “The major FMCG companies now recognise this area as an important new medium, Tied up in knots?
Goal • Virgin Features Adidas logo and ball Bill's Tomato Game • Psygnosis m Features Heinz tomato ketchup and included a free sachet Global Gladiators • Virgin ' Included lots of gratuitous McDonalds style tie-ins McDonaldland • Virgin Speaks for itself!
Cool Spot • Virgin I V Tie-in with 7-Up logo
* J,.
Jaguar XJ220 • Core Design Arcade Racer using Jaguar's state-of-the art auto a International Champ Golf • Ocean Tie-in with Pringle golf sweaters Soccer Kid • Krysalis Tie-in with Golden Grahams breakfast cereal on Soccer Kid's football top ?
That is, a great way of targeting a specific market."
Like a great many of us, you're probably not only questioning some of the ethics involved, but also, what's actually in it for the games player. But the software houses, and companies like Microtime Media and JAC, are quick to respond to both of the aforementioned notions.
They all believe very strongly that the concept of advertising in computer titles is a healthy idea and good for the industry.
As Keith Smith says: "I can't see why people should think of it as an immoral practice. Young people are being subjected to more advertising messages than ever before.
"This is not a bad thing, it's just progress. If games are to be singled out, then once they've been torn to shreds the spotlight will fall on the likes of Take That or Jurassic Park."
Martyn Brown of Team 17. The company responsible for Superfrog and its tie-up with Lucozade reiterated the point.
“I don't think it does anybody any harm as long as the advertising isn't detrimental to the game."
MULTI-NATIONALS The industry is adamant that games players can only benefit from tie-ups and sponsorship from large multinationals. Involvement with such companies brings in much-needed development money which brings a higher standard of software to the player.
Danny Robroff explained some of the benefits to the games player: "Each campaign always features some benefit to the consumer. For example, in One Step Beyond a whole new engine was designed for the game, and it was still launched at the reduced price of £19.99, about ten pounds cheaper than most software.
"Penguin Biscuits featured such things as free Mega Drives and free copies of Pond, and also on-pack offers giving gamers £10 off software titles."
On the opposite side of the fence is the notion that games players are being exposed to a high level of advertising when they boot up their computers.
In television, people are exposed to short sharp explosions of hard-sell advertising; in computer games the sell is a lot softer. This is because the player very often sits at a monitor for over two hours and can therefore be subjected to much more subtle messages.
One of the key dangers are the false claims element of advertising. For example, in a game such as Superfrog, when our green friend walks over Lucozade bottles he has his energy restored to its full status.
Although the product does make similar claims, this potentially could lead children into believing such a notion is completely true.
This, however, is the tip of the iceberg in comparison to the prospects the future brings. Technological breakthroughs such as compact disc - with the ability to run such things as full motion video - open up new dangers for use by the unscrupulous.
At the moment in the United Kingdom there is absolutely no legislation regarding computer games. This means that techniques such as flash subliminal photography, which was banned as an advertising medium on television years ago, can still be legally used within the framework of such things as computer games.
Although no-one has yet to test the authorities, Richard Robson admits it's just a question of time: "It's highly possible that some unscrupulous operator will do it at sometime."
Indeed, such is the concern of advertising's governing bodies, that they have set up Project 2000. The main aim of this commission is to investigate all areas of new technology media, but included in this bracket is computer software.
Following a meeting with advertising's governing bodies, software houses and companies such as Microtime Media, it was decided that while there is no immediate dissatisfaction, the industry needs a code of practice to cover the future.
As Fionnuala Tennyson of the Advertising Association said of the software industry: “Legislation at the moment is not good enough with the strong element of advertising that is developing."
In the immediate future it's highly likely that products such as word processors and art packages will pick up advertisers from companies manufacturing items like pens and paper.
Reaching further forward into the realms of virtual reality and neural networks, like those written about in books such as William Gibson's Neuromancer, then a totally new can of worms opens up.
VIRTUAL REALITY The potential within this new electronic society for advertising is huge, and the day of VR worlds isn't as distant as you may imagine.
Soon, you’ll don your headgear and journey into a new world within your front room. A world where electronic ad hoardings will beat out their neon messages, across the hum of a chip-controlled neural city.
This could be a world full of possibilities, but also is likely to be crammed to the brink with just as many messages as your everyday high street, with every sense interfaced and interfered with.
This doesn't mean we’re necessarily heading for some Orwellian nightmare, because the advertising world, the software industry and companies like Microtime Media all want to see a code of practice introduced.
But as in so many other areas, technology is out-running the law, posing new moral questions which demand rapid sorting out and translation into workable legislation, before the damage has already been done.

ZOOL wnformsin every way to what you’d expect from a perfect cutesy hi game. And in doing so has become the perfect platform game... jke all things cute and colourful, yooif love this, and if you aren 7 msed to platform games you'll still love it."
M Amiga Format Gold 95% r'uui jS hihthtm Wyuuul he popularity of football has meant that it affects most people's lives in some way. Loathe it, or love it there's no way of escaping it - especially now, when it's brought to our homes via the technology of home computers.
There are an abundance of football games from the management strategy types to the arcade simulations. Both are becoming increasingly popular with your average gamesplayer which inevitably means hungry software house trying to cash in.
All manner of football games are continually released as the software companies compete for your cash, resulting in vastly differing standards from the good, to the bad. To the very ugly.
As a multitude of football simulations have been released, stretching back into the distant and murky past, it would be hard to give a full, comprehensive guide to every sim ever released, so we've picked out some of the best and most acclaimed of more recent times. Dini and Dini Productions and Sensible Software Introduction brought us the two most acclaimed titles that led to the battle of the giants - namely the heated competition between Sensible Soccer and Kick Off - in their quest to be the definitive football sim.
Other contenders in the fight were Krisalis's licensed releases, the Manchester United games, and it wasn't long before Ocean got in on the act too with their offering European Champions. All boasted playability, dozens of options, and fine graphics.
Not to be outdone by each other, sequel after sequel hit our shelves, along with many updated versions and data disks. It became more complicated for the average gamer to find what he wanted from a football game.
Life, far from becoming easier, is set to confuse even more with many of the promised forthcoming releases so we’ve separated the best from the rest from the past present and future and rounded them up for your deliberation.
Part one of our feature deals with what is currently on offer and next month we'll be looking at forthcoming releases.
Sensible Soccer came on the scene to challenge the Kick Off releases. The games world was amazed by the wide range of options and the authentic atmosphere.
Samples of crowd chants, gasps and boos along with sirens and drums create that all-important football atmosphere. The game is viewed from a slightly elevated position so there is no need for a radar or scanner. There are many options to choose from in Sensible Soccer, such as seasonal weather, match length and fully changeable teams. The sprites, although smaller than the norm, are still very detailed and easy to control. The game's appeal lies in its sheer playability and immediate controllability.
The game plays at a reasonable pace too, giving the player more time to plan shots, and thus giving a greater feeling of control.
¦If IIM Kick Off Kick Off 2 Goal (Anco Virgin) European Champions (Ocean) Recently released is this third Krisalis Manchester United licence, and from the looks of things it promises to surpass its predecessors. Changes made include switching the game view from side to above and adding a great strategy management angle to it.
A tacti-grid allows you to decide where and how your squad should play. Decide on a formation and your players will stick to it.
The game is also made highly realistic in that players have their own defined skill levels. Although inspired by Sensible Dino Dini is the man behind the Kick Off series. The first offering set new standards in football gaming as we know it. The second went on only to better this and wowed many a games player with its sheer controllability.
Things went from good to very good for Dino Dini with a third Kick Off in the making, but with Dino parting company with Anco, publishers of the previous Kick Offs, the licence was taken up by Virgin and the game given the new moniker Goal.
Goal impressed with its improved graphics, enhanced sound effects and frantic gameplay. View of Soccer, MUPLC has more clearly defined sprites and the whole game is well presented.
Details such as the replay function and being able to make informed substitution decisions because the computer will tell you what state your player is in, makes the game stand out from its counterpart.
The game looks set to be a huge hit and the interactive element coupled with the great playability will be a more than worrying challenger for games already on the shelves and those to be released.
The pitch can be switched between a close up or conventional overhead view, Match atmosphere is generated through 100k of sound effects such as supporters responding to the play, for example, cheering, if a player takes a shot on goal.
Although Goal is at first not as easy to control as Sensible Soccer, once mastered you can produce some very rewarding moves. Being able to "trap'* the ball and then kick it in the required direction needs practice but results in spectacular accuracy.
Man Utd Premier League Champions (Krisalis) Recently released is this third Krisalis Manchester United licence, and from the looks of things it promises to surpass its predecessors. Changes made include changing the game view from side to above and adding a great strategy management angle to it.
A tacti-grid allows you to decide where and how your squad should play. Decide on a formation and your players will stick to it.
The game is also highly realistic in that players have their own defined skill levels. Although inspired by Sensible Soccer, MUPLC has more clearly defined sprites and the whole thing is well presented.
Details, such as the replay function and being able to make informed substitution decisions because the computer will tell you what state your player is in, makes the game stand out from its counterpart.

Iifim 13S Stockport County fantasy football The Tournament After this brief reviewing session, the Tournament began in earnest. Lee Todd and Darren Ryan stepped forward to take on the AC team in a vicious game of Sensible Soccer. Match tension was high - with fingers flexed and focus at maximum, Stockport prepared themselves for the first semi-final.
The AC team in the meantime put on a brave face while fumbling for Valium and Beta Blockers in a vain attempt to hold themselves together for the first match... Lee Todd, SCFC vs Tina “The” Hackett, AC Team Lee made his intentions clear from the beginning - after a close call at Hackett'S goal right from the off, he had the control of the ball for the majority of the game.
In the meantime, to foulir of iarp crossover Tat left Hackett blushing irrsname.
The second half held few surprises
- although AC did manage to take a few pot shots at the goal,
Stockport drove the ball in to the net once again, bearing an
unarguable result... 2-0. Todd was into the final.
League tables To make life easier, finer details of the games and the different options available are con* tained within our league table.
Who better to give their football insights on some of the better footy titles to grace our screens than the lads who play the game for a living?
Stockport County Football Club is a team that can boast several trips to Wembley and the tallest player in the football league - a healthy six foot seven inches.
With this in mind, the Amiga Computing team made their way with head held high (about six foot) to the grounds for the ensuing tournament.
Before plunging into this clash of the titans and to give the players a warm up, we presented them with four titles from the current crop of football games to flex the hand muscles with.
Coal!
The latest offering from Dino Dini only managed to stir an "it's all right" from Lee Todd, Stocky's right back. The players warmed to it after a while though, as Darren Ryan, right left wing, claimed that he preferred Goal to everyone’s favourite Sensible Soccer, and Lee came to the conclusion that the graphics were the best of the bunch.
Manchester United Europe After the hissing and catcalls had Subsided and the Amiga had been safely saved from being thrown out of the window, Neil Edwards, goalkeeper, and Darren settled down for a play on this Man utd- sponsored game from Krisalis.
Even after several minutes of play, the consensus of opinion was that the controls weren't up to much and that the gameplay was so slow that "even Linford Christie couldn't play this one".
The rather tame sound effects were subject to a barrage of laughter as the ball bounced off the goal post with a rather limp ping. All in all, not a game that was met with thumbs up.
Manchester United Pro League Champion After fetching the Amiga from outside of the dub room's broken window and saving the disks from injury time, Lee Todd and Andy Preece, striker, had a quick game on Krisalis' Sensi-like title.
Comments made suggested that everything moves so fast that it's difficult to see what is actually going on, and struggling to control what was going on was even more of a problem.

latest sports game is a good way to raise that blood pressure, as Stevie Kennedy discovered »he Ryder Cup competition, played between Europe and the USA, is one of the few golf tournaments to interest many non-golfers, as our boys do battle with the Yanks for one of the most prestigious trophies the sport can offer.
True to the original. Ocean's game puts the player in charge of the 12 best professionals from either side of the Atlantic, playing over a gruelling three-day schedule in Which five rounds of golf and the elusive 14.5 points winning total will stretch most people's nerves to the knuckle-biting stage.
Choosing to play either as USA or Europe, and in the shoes of up to four golfers at any one time, the player's skill with a driver and a spot of deft team selection could be the difference between finishing as the grinning Tony Jacklin, or the crushed and bitterly disappointed Bernard Gallagher.
INTRODUCTION BRONZE auia d n 9 V«y I Hqf-HlHS The Initial yardage reading is the only distance gauge available WPH Team play gives the game a great deal more depth and playability Reasonable but sparse more or less sums it up as far as sound goes. The sampled cheers from the crowd when a hole is won are suitably rewarding, but they begin very clumsily without any fade-in and end almost as abruptly.
The odd tweeting bird, splashes when your ball lands in water, and a great sample of the ball landing in the cup when a putt goes down are the only spot effects except for the awful white noise used to indicate that you've hit a tree.
Ocean have made full use of the A1200's 256-colour mode to make Ryder Cup Golf easily the best looking golf game on the Amiga. The game's four courses (which include the Belfry and the Village, Ohio) are beautifully drawn, from the trees to the shaded fairways.
By stacking the various graphics in layers, a certain amount of parallax effect is achieved, and the most distant objects are faded into the sky to give the appearance of depth. Static screens are every bit as good, particularly those which are accessed during play, and the attention to detail is gratifyingly high.
There are a few bad points, though, and a few extra touches here and there wouldn’t have been out of place. As in most golf games, for instance, the golfer sprite, his swing action, and the club he is apparently holding remain unchanged whether he’s belting out a 300-yard drive or attempting a tricky wedge shot, and the shading could benefit from more attention.
Polygons aren't used on fairways or greens, so the shading is the player's only way of guessing the lie of the land, and as this is often a little too subtle, it can be very difficult to judge which way the ball will bounce or roll. A grid can be superimposed on the greens, but iron shots are unaided by any such technique.
Overall, though, there can be few gripes over graphics, which are definitely the game's greatest strength.
":1i The Ryder Cup was first officially played in 1927 at Worcester, Massachusetts, when Ted Ray's British team went down 9.5 to 2.5 points at the hands of the great Walter Hagen.
Twelve months earlier, the unofficial precursor to the cup competition had seen the British destroy the Americans at Wentworth.
Abe Mitchell, the captain of that first unofficial team, was shortly to be immortalised as the figure you can see on the top of the trophy, donated by British businessman Samuel Ryder, which the teams have competed for ever since.
Great Britain's first official Ryder Cup win came two years later at the Moortown course, and every two years since then, war permitting, the cup has provided one of golf's most enthralling competitions.
Despite a British win in 1957 and a draw in 1969, the Americans dominated the Ryder Cup until 1979, when the beleaguered British enlisted the help of the continent to form a European team for the first time.
Matches became closer and closer until, in 1985, Tony Jacklin's team finally won the cup back when Sam Torrance sunk his memorable putt and prompted a flood of joyful tears from all present.
The recent resurgence of European golfing strength, thanks to players such as Ian Woosnam, Nick Faldo. Seve Ballesteros and Bernhard Langer, has made the Ryder Cup one of the most popular TV sporting events of all, and millions of viewers tune in every two years to watch what has become a string of incredibly dose-fought contests.

* • i Hole previews are handy, but maps should be larger
Microprose Golf is the touchstone for simulation excellence,
and Ocean's attempt comes nowhere near it. In the Microprose
game, contoured fairways, realistic ball flight, challenging
gameplay and an attention to realism in wind effects, lie of
the ball and other areas more than make up for ordinary
graphics and poor sound.
Of the graphically-inclined games, PGA Tour is probably the only real contender, and Ryder Cup Golf beats it hands down. We won't bother to include Links, as it is so slow as to be unplayable, so Ocean have managed to place themselves somewhere in the middle.
Ryder Cup's most damaging weakness has to be the poor quality of the simulation itself. The flight of the ball is nothing like a real golf ball, and the avid real world golfer will be disappointed.
In addition, the hole previews do not offer a yardage gauge, making it almost impossible to decide whether to lay up before a stream or attempt to clear it with a good drive.
Ocean wouldn't be spoiling the player by offering some sort of yardage indicator, as all pros these days have almost Ordinance Survey-like information supplied by their caddies who walk the course several times before his nibs steps out on the first tee.
Three different methods are available for actually taking a shot, ranging from the easy-peasy combined shot to the trickier hook slice method. The latter is similar to the traditional power bar as used by most games, while the combined shot method uses a click selector for power and a moving sniper's sight which you click to stop at the desired part of the ball.
This is fairly easy, so the player can elect to introduce wobble to make stopping the sight at the correct spot a lot harder. The third method is the chip punch screen from which you select how much loft you require then choose from five types of chip and punch. Around the greens and when stuck under a tree, this method comes into its own.
On the whole, Ryder Cup Golf never really feels like golf.
The poor ball flight mechanics, a nagging suspicion that those fairways are actually completely flat, and the seeming lack of effect of the wind on the ball rob an otherwise neat play system of realism.
45% opinion rwi Ocean have produced a golf game which refuses to be categorised in the normal way. In terms of its simulation, the game is badly flawed, but the variety of shots on offer gives Ryder Cup Golf a flexibility in gameplay which many will find attractive.
Probably the game's best element is that it is a team event, and it is here that the drama of the Ryder Cup is at least partly reconstructed in pixel form.
Choosing from the last European or USA team (you can play on either side), the player has the job of selecting who plays who and in what order, making the role of captain one of the most important.
There's no point in putting your best players against the other side's weakest in the hope of quick points, because your own weakest players will take a real trouncing when their turn comes up, and as each player performs in a similar fashion to his real world counterpart, the golfing fans among us will have a much easier time of it.
As the three-day event unfolded, I found myself skipping from match to match in an attempt to bolster flagging rounds. Faldo and Woosnam can usually be left to their own devices, but some of the other players, if left under computer control, will be less predictable, and the game aids team play immensely by enabling the player to change the golfers he has under his control at the end of each hole.
This makes it possible to stay on your favourite hole and play each match as it comes through, and I managed to win four in a row doing just that.
On the other hand, the warm glow at winning a hole can quickly dissipate when the score board comes up showing that the other matches are losing ground.
The extra challenge of team play in an intensive three-day tournament lifts what is otherwise a very average game with good graphics, and had the golfing simulation been better, Ryder Cup Golf might have been a very good game indeed.
Ook at the state of this country, and the government is to blame for it all! Now it's not like me to start a political rant at the beginning of a review, but I have my reasons for this outburst. How many times have you thought that you could run the country better than some of today's hapless politicians?
Come with me on a journey into space to play the Syd Mead-inspired strategy war mining simulation that is Maelstrom.
Jonathan Maddock grabs his gun and shovel Well, now you can get first-hand experience of running not only a country, but a whole planet, courtesy of Maelstrom. Empire's brand new simulation.
PAS Systems have spent the last two years developing Maelstrom and have tried to achieve maximum realism not only in terms of the mechanics of running a government and fighting a foe, but also in terms of the interaction between people and factors in the game.
As in real life. Maelstrom features a galaxy that is never constant: its characters have moods, its technology is fallible, its leaders are whimsical, and its masses unpredictable.
Maelstrom provides you with all the tools for interacting with an entire galaxy while controlling your military, secret intelligence network, research and mining operations INTRODUCTION and heads off to war ni9r sssj ___ j__ ____ Ini BO-VV I,worn,I I tikkh II IHTHOOUCT jnvuii i h CL vs HI svwmniTc, two Imkii Nn«K«y gm ifm » n niNimi rtmrf rut- r rv nutm toow nw or ¦Tnmm rmrm immnn rrTirm The start of your quest and your helpful and intelligent assistant is there on the Televid to answer any questions you might have The sector map gives you a comprehensive representation of the entire

Knowing the explosive composition of Harmony's surface, you were looking for a means of take-over other than a space- ground assault.
During the flight, second thoughts entered your mind. Though you were not of the highest rank, your knowledge of the Syndicate's methods of colonisation turned you against them.
Harmony is a peaceful mining community and it bothered you that you were helping the Syndicate usurp the government. As this would’ve meant killing innocent miners and their families. When you reached Harmony, you defected and joined the people of the planet.
The people, pleased with this transition, appointed you to the position of Overlord. This puts you in charge of dll operations. You must stop the Syndicate before they capture Harmony and change the galaxy into a ruthless dictatorship.
4 Mi| 1114 If you're looking for an orchestral atmospheric sweeping soundtrack, layered with ear-enlightening sound effects, then don't buy Maelstrom because the sound is virtually non-existent.
I'm not saying that Maelstrom particularly needs amazing sound, but a slight touch of music here and there would've gone a long way to improving the game and giving it that much needed shot of atmosphere.
The only sound effects you'll hear are a few beeps and bangs and even they aren't exactly awe-inspiring. If you want good sounds, then you'll just have to go somewhere else I'm afraid.
Syd Mead is the man who inspired Maelstrom. Syd is a world- renowned industrial designer and futurist and is perhaps best known for his participation in designing Blade Runner. Mead has also been a major contributor to other feature films including 2010, Aliens, Star Trek: The Motion Picture and the Disney classic Tron.
This is not Syd's first game though, because back in October 1993 he had a hand in producing CyberRace on the PC and Macintosh for Cyberdreams, the company behind the highly successful Dark Seed.
Maelstrom isn't the sort of game that requires state-of-the-art graphics and most of the time the screen is full of words and figures for you to interpret to decide what you’re going to do next.
The only section where you get lots of visuals is when you're talking to various people through the Televid screen. This is used for contact with all the important people in the galaxy, including your cabinet on Harmony. In addition to talking to these people, you can also view their personal files for background information.
I suppose the only section of graphics worth mentioning is when you select the sector map or It's quite a hard task to find a game that you can compare Maelstrom to, as it contains a lot of different gaming elements. The closest game that I can think of is Virgin's Dune 2, which received 81 per cent back in September 1993 and was highly acclaimed by critics and punters alike.
The gameplay consisted of constructing new buildings, repairing any existing and damaged buildings, scouting out new areas of land, mining and destroying the opposing forces.
Dune 2 is one of those games that grows on you, if you stick at it.
There's plenty of depth and challenge in Virgin's strategy game and it's quite well executed. Dune 2 was a good attempt at a difficult genre to succeed with.
When an event occurs and you get a short animation. The sector map gives you a comprehensive representation of the entire galaxy, all presented inside a 3D grid, It's handy for finding those planets, but once you've found them there isn't a lot more the map feature can do. So it seems that this is quite a superficial addition that really isn't necessary.
The animations are quite nice, but they're definitely not integral to the gameplay and seem to have been put in Maelstrom so that you forget about all the other "basic" graphics.
Maelstrom is an incredibly in-depth strategy game and one which seems to have more bad points than good. For instance, because it is so open-ended you don't actually have much idea of what you must do.
When things like battles and the event animations do start to happen it does get slightly more interesting, but these events won't hold your attention for long. The game is supposedly very realistic in terms of interaction between people and factors, but total realism isn't always a good thing in computer games.
If you are a fan of this genre then you will definitely need a hard drive unless you've got the patience of a saint. It all comes on six disks and has loads of annoying swaps which constantly interrupt the game.
For a product that has taken two years to develop, I expected to get a lot more.
Maelstrom is just so in-depth that it actually makes playing the game not very exciting, not very entertaining and not much fun.
If you're looking for a decent strategy game then take a look at the excellent K24Q or Dune 2, but I would only recommend Maelstrom to the die-hard strategy fan.
Guy Miller Product monoger game designer eep in deepest Derby a sets of brains are ticking away. They are thinking thoughts about mass destruction and big guns. The brains in question belong to posse of game developers, and they might all have psychopathic tendencies, but as far as game design goes this is not such a bad thing.
Adventurers, Jonathan Maddnch quivered in a corner as System zoomed down to Derby to check out what’s coming soon tram Cora Design Cutesy, fluffy and cuddly game characters are out - this is 1994 and gun-toting, hyper-hi-tech. Exo-skeleton wearing, morbid mercenaries are in. The game developers I'm talking about all work for Core Design and their latest project is Skeleton Krew - a blastfest from hell.
Core’s blast-’em-up is a story about some awful cryogenic mutations known as Psykogenix who have overrun an entire city while under the command of an evil ex-mortician and erstwhile cryogenics experimenter called Moribund Kadaver.
News that Moribund has created a terrible Psyko Machine reaches the headquarters of the Military Assertainment Department. In desperation, the MAD call upon the services of a team of morbid mercenaries called the Skeleton Krew.
You can choose from three characters, Spine, Joint and Rib, with the fourth member of the Krew, Skulker the operations vehicle, appearing in a computer-controlled advisory capacity during between-level scene-setting sequences.
The action takes place in an eight-way scrolling isometric environment, with the main on-screen characters split into upper and lower sprites, thus allowing them eight*way directional movement and an eight-way field of fire.
System talked to three of the development “krew" to get the low-down on what looks like becoming one of the greatest 3D isometric games ever to appear the Amiga.
W lay 1194 K What did you do before you started work at Core Design?
01 joined Rare Ltd (a company better known as Ultimate Play The Game, creators of Knightlore and Underwurlde) in Twycross in the 80s, first as a graphic artist and then as their creative designer - putting together storyboards for a variety of games on the Nintendo Entertainment System. The most successful of these (in the US, at least) was Battletoads.
39 How did you come up with the idea for Skeleton Krew?
0 Chris Long, the Mega Drive programmer, had the idea of doing a two-player, 3D isometric shoot-'em- up. I then got together with James Ryman and we came up with the idea of the 'Krew, a bunch of psychotic anti-heroes with sexy exo-skeletons and big guns, battling against evil exmortician and cryogenic experimenter Moribund Kadaver - and his army of deadly Psykogenix - across six levels of morbid mayhem!
38 Three-dimensional isometric shoot‘‘em-ups are few and far between in the Amiga games world. Why did you choose to use 3D over the standard 2D view?
0 Mainly because of the fact that 3D isometric shoot-'em-ups are a rare beast on any games platform. We just thought it would be great to have a 3D environment to blast about in.
I personally get more out of playing a game where you’ve got 3D depth and more freedom of movement rather than moving in a single, sideways direction through a flat 2D environment.
39 What makes Skeleton Krew different from every other blast• 'em-up? Are there any unique features?
0 Well, it's got a 3D isometric viewpoint for starters! Mix that with the best graphics and animation you're likely to see this year, the best characters, the biggest and best explosions, more gore than a gorefest, a stompin' soundtrack, more action than a Steven Seagal movie, lastabil- ity, playability and blastability - we think we've got a shoot-'em-up that'll put all others to shame.
S Skeleton Krew is a major league blast-'em-up, but just how much violence is in the game?
0 Violence? Loadsaviolence. So much, in fact, that you'll have to keep telling yourself "it's only a game", but that's what it is - a game.
This is cartoon violence we're talking about here. It isn't real. Nobody really gets hurt. Only pixels and they don't feel a thing.
T 4- by design Jason Gosling Programmer S What did you do before you started work at Core Design?
0 Life before Core was spent producing rave flyers for a venue in Mansfield - a far cry from programming. For eight years before I came to Core, programming was a major hobby, though.
38 Skeleton Krew will only appear on the A1200 and CD32. Why isn't there going to be a A 500 600 version?
0 When we first started this project, the A50Q 600 was thought to be too limited for what we wanted to produce in speed, colours and so on. However, we haven't completely written-off an A500 600 scaled-down version of the game.
38 What "amazing" features can the A1200ICD32 owner expect to see?
0 Well, it'll be fast and the sprites will be much larger than most people are used to. Joint, for example, is 58 pixels wide and 48 pixels high - and that's big! There'll also be 2,000 colours on-screen at any one time and a full-screen isometric viewpoint.
01 think it's a very good for what it is - a huge storage medium and high-quality music system. Its full potential as a games medium is really up to individual game designers.
S3 This is apparently your first major games programming job. How are you finding things in the big scary world of game making?
0 Very down-to-earth. It's really not what most people imagine - nobody gets rich overnight, for example, and most people don't drive expensive sports cars. But money isn't everything and the work is very satisfying - when things go rights!
39 The sprites in Skeleton Krew are a bit on the large size. What are the advantages and disadvantages of using such big sprites?
0 The main advantage is that bigger sprites make it easier for the player to see what's happening and it's more fun to take control of a big character than a tiny little thing. The disadvantage is that there's a difficulty in keeping the speed up.
33 Apparently the game's characters can rotate their bodies a full 360 degrees, allowing them to fire in one direction while walking in another. How difficult was it fo implement this control method?
0 This was one of the most difficult phases of the project. There are over 120 frames to Joint alone, all sequenced according to several factors, including direction and whether he is shooting or jumping. The control will have to be customisable, ie a one button controller and keyboard or a multi-button controller.
James Ryman Production Designer S' What did you do before you started work at Core Design?
Q Like Guy, I'm a Rare escapee. Jeremy Smith (Core Design's MD) made us an offer we couldn't refuse. I'm glad I accepted. Core's a great, truly creative company to work for. Unlike some others I could name.
31 How did you come up with the idea for Skeleton Krew?
Q Guy and myself got together and used our warped minds to invent a warped world filled with warped characters to give warped thrills to warped people like us.
S3 Explain the processes involved in designing a game, from simple sketches to finished product r 0- &l! The first thing to do is get the initial idea. In this case, Chris Long decided it would be great to do a two-player, 3D isometric shoot-'em-up.
Then Guy and I fleshed out the concept and storyline, while Jason Gosling and Chris worked on the initial code.
Meanwhile, I'm sketching like crazy, wasting loads of trees on game ideas and character designs, while Guy works up the storyboard game design map designs for presentation to the powers that be. This gets the go-ahead and it’s game on... £3 A; a rule most shoot-’em-ups slowly become tedious. How will you solve this problem with Skeleton Krew?
Q By the inclusion of secret rooms, power-ups. Traps and the like, and a very basic strategy pu2zle element throughout the game - basic as in shooting one thing to make another thing appear and then shooting at that.
S3 You’re responsible for drawing graphics for the Mega Drive version. How are you finding it working in a 3D isometric view?
G! My true role is as production designer, which means that I am responsible for the graphical look and feel, character designs and atmosphere in all versions (A1200, CD32 and Mega Drive) of the game.
Three-dimensional work has its own problems, but then so do other types of game Hey, I'm a professional, I can overcome any problem!
Wandering around Laval 2.
And Ebryn comes up against a skeleton with an attitude problem There hasn't been a really good 3D isometric adventure on the Amiga since the Bitmap Brothers released Cadaver, so I think it's about time for another. In Core Design's forthcoming role player, you play the role of Ebryn, the son of an Elven king known as Gildorn.
For many years the villagers of Darkmere were terrorised by the mighty dragon, Enywas. The Elven Council refused to help the villagers with their fire-breathing predicament, but Gildorn couldn't condone this form of non-action, and with sword and a scrying crystal in hand he set off to slay the dragon.
The battle was long and hard, but Gildorn succeeded. Years later when he was old and weak, his son Ebryn had become a brave fighter. But due to neglect and disinterest, the land was once more becoming a magnet for evil.
Then one day, the skies grew dark and the wrath of the demons was cast down upon the village. Ebryn was given his father's sword, the one with which he had slain the mighty dragon.
As heir to the throne, it was Ebryn's quest to uncover the mysterious curse of Darkmere and avenge the people of the village - but this time for ever.
Darkmere promises to be a true role-playing game with an interactive style of play. Graphics-wise it's by far the best looking adventure that I've ever clapped eyes on.
There will be animated backgrounds on each of the 600 screens, plus exceptional graphics and animations including on-screen combat.
Darkmere features three massive levels, each with over 150 isometric 3D locations. Atmosphere is provided by over 100k of sampled sound in each level.

00Q0Q Railroad Tycoon Building railways is a highly unusual concept for a computer game and not surprisingly it may raise an eyebrow or two. However, MicroProse have taken a potentially dull subject and released an original and fun simulation in Railroad Tycoon.
Brought to you by the author behind many a good strategy game such as the well renowned Civilization, Sid Meier aims to capture in Railroad the essence of building an empire.
As an entrepreneur in the 1800s, you need to develop your empire by building railways. Although this sounds relatively easy, you're not the only one who sees opportunities for wealth in the railway industry. You will need to develop a competent strategy to see off your rivals.
To start the game you choose which one of the four countries you wish play in, each one having its own significant place in railway history, and its own economy.
For example, play in England around 1828 and you will need to consider that cotton used in the mills around Manchester needs to be transported from the harbours of Liverpool.
You have to keep a close eye on your funds; careful handling of limited finances is essential, so you'll find yourself having to decide between buying more trains or adding more facilities or stock purchases, for instance.
Decisions as to where to lay track, what types of train to use and when to schedule them lie in your hands. Your ultimate aim is to build the most prof* itable railway so you can retire to a prestigious position.
This is a very original game and darn good fun to bootl Definitely worth a look at this budget price- 58% Fly Harder Our second low-priced offering is an Amiga port-over for the CD32 via Krisalis' budget label, Buzz.
As a mixture between a blast-'em-up and a gravity-'em-up (let's call it a blas- tivity-'em-up for the sake of argument), the aim of Fly Harder is to find and collect energy spheres and drop them onto reactors.
The gravity element provides the difficulty here, and you're going to have to be pretty quick with the controls to manipulate your spaceship close to the spheres and then guide the spheres to the reactor. Having dropped all of the spheres onto the reactor, you progress to the next level. The story behind Fly Harder is that you are on an interstellar spaceship heading towards the planet Zarkow when you are informed that the Targoid insect people have installed powerful reactors in the planet's cavern system - reactors which will drain the planet's energy supplies and raw materials.
This is where your help is needed. As one of the ship's finest pilots you are sent to try and save the planet. And as if life wasn't difficult enough, the Targoids have invented a complex security system which you will need to get past before you can destroy the reactors.
The Targoids will try and block your attempts with laser barriers, for instance, which you must try and switch off to pass unhindered. The difficulty level of the game can be set. Degrees of Targoid aggression can be altered, as can the amount of gravity that affects you. So the game is accessible to the novice player while retaining a fair amount of longevity, even for the expert. The password system is helpful, as even though the game becomes highly addictive, it would be extremely annoying starting from the beginning every time - especially as the life meter isn't exactly over-generous.
Visually, Fly Harder is impressive. Backdrops are clear and detailed and give a feeling of depth and realism. The game clearly benefits from the CD's quick loading abilities and enhanced sound, too, with smooth scrolling making for great playability, and the sound effects adding much atmosphere.
Fly Harder is a good example of the direction in which the CD game should be going in terms of gameplay and scrolling, but does not really show off the machine to its full potential, probably because it is merely a port-over.
But it is a highly playable and addictive game. Although a relatively unusual title, it can be likened somewhat to Thrust. It's rather difficult to get the hang of at first, but will keep you glued to your screen for a good while.

Epic, F-29 Retaliator and RoboCop 3 being the most infamous. Unfortunately, RoboCop 3 aside, these previous efforts have achieved notoriety for the wrong reasons. While most would have to admit that they were all tremendously
ambitious projects, they were let down by rushed schedules and poor bug testing.
But. These initial hiccups did not dampen the enthusiasm of DID, who rather than consolidating their losses, have set about proving themselves to any doubting Thomases.
Ever since its inception some 18 months ago, TFX (Tactical Fighter Experiment) has attracted a great deal of attention. Its formal unveiling came at last September's European Computer Trade Show, where it completely stole the limelight and left the crowd gobsmacked.
It was released to rave reviews on the PC and has to date sold 70,000 copies. Meanwhile, back in Runcorn, the Amiga version is busily being polished pending its imminent release. Although TFX was released on the PC first, what most people will be unaware of is that the majority of the development was done on the Amiga.
¦it iim HI However, creating TFX on Commodore machines didn't come problem free, as lead programmer Charlie Wallis explained: “Using the A4000 was great, but the main problem we found was the lack of quality development software. The only way around this situation was to devise our own compilers, and code around them."
LAVISH This wasn't the only problem Charlie faced though.
TFX is an absolutely huge title, and the PC version is bathed lavishly in ground and structure detail.
The A1200, with its 2Mb of RAM, struggles to handle this quantity of detail, and is left feeling rather insignificant in comparison to the processing power of a modern PC.
However, Charlie is quite confident that the A1200 version will have everything that its PC counterpart boasts: “It'll have the same amount of colour, same detail, but you'll be able to turn the detail up and down, depending which machine you're using.
"It'll be a little slower on the A1200, but the A4000 should be capable of moving polygons very quickly."
While the A1200 version should appear on about ten disks and sounds a likely candidate for the hard drive, Charlie has tried to prioritise the disks for ease of access.
"TFX is huge, in fact the PC version boasts 13Mb of information, so to make disk accessing easier on the | Amiga, we separated all the campaign disks and prioritised them all to the relevant regions."
One machine that won't have to worry too much about disks is Commodore's console the CD32. Charlie confirmed that a compact disc version is well under way: "The CD32 version will have absolutely everything, in fart it'll probably boast more features than the PC ver- i sion. The CD32 has the planar chip, so we can apply texture to polygons and hopefully move them faster."
The action in TFX centres around a UN aerial peace keeping force. As a United Nations pilot, your career will throw you into five of the most volatile flashpoints in the modern world. These hotbeds stretch from Columbia and its infamous drug barons, through to Somalia, where famine is rife because of General Mohammed Aideed and the other warlords. You can also attempt to keep the peace in war zones like Libya and Yugoslavia, where the Serbs, Croats and Muslims continue to wage war.
TFX will be no different to many of the modern combat simulators in the respect that it’ll feature a campaign option. This will consist of the same mission structure as many modern simulator players are familiar with. Air Superiority, Interception, Anti-Armour, Close Air Support, Interdiction. Defence Suppression and Maritime.
MISSIONS However, if none of these are to your liking, then the game will also feature a mission creator, so you can define your own.
To assist you in the mission create option, DID have implemented satellite imagery. This has meant that the team have had to accurately map the majority of the earth's surfaces, including most of her key rivers, valleys and mountain ranges.
DID claim that they've developed an incredibly simple but extremely realistic system. Feedback from PC users seems to suggest that the Runcorn developers are to be believed.
TFX will also boast a whole range of external camera views and zoom facilities, and even on-board missile cameras. However, one of the most innovative features DID have thrown in is the virtual flight option. Viewing a bitmapped cockpit and pilot perspective, the plane will behave exactly as in true flight.
This means that as the plane rolls the player will see it sweep, but the pilot will remain stationary momentarily before falling in line with the rest of the cockpit. This is an aspect seldom included in flight simulators, but one which pushes TFX a little closer to the real thing.
TFX should also boast some very realistic graphics, with yet more attention being paid to detail.
For instance, when you strafe ground targets don't be surprised if tracer isn't whizzing over your shoulder, and if screenshots are anything to go by, be prepared to wince as bitmapped AAA explodes around your cockpit.
With the ievel of technical and graphical detail anticipated, if the Amiga versions come close to what PC owners have been revelling in then DID will surely have put Commodore machines safely back into the simulated skyline.
Simulator specialists TFX will feature three of the most advanced aircraft in the world, each of which will fly you into battle scenarios around the globe.
Of the planes in service in TFX, only the Lockheed F-117A Stealth Fighter has yet seen the light of day. The Eurofighter 2000 is still under test and the Lockheed F-22 will probably get no further than the prototype stage.
Although TFX will cater for the arcade end of the simulator market, the team have gone to great lengths to create accuracy, as Shaun Hollywood explains: “Initially we went through Jane's [techie defence industry publication - Ed] to find out the specifications of the planes. This wasn't that easy because some of the jets we're using haven't been declassified yet.“ After this Stage, DID enlisted a real pilot to help with the flight models, and to ensure that the flight envelope was accurate. Combat routines were coded from real footage so the team could be sure that the enemy planes would react
correctly to your missiles.
In an effort to recreate technical realities, the firm looked further afield and recruited an extra dimension of knowledge. Charlie Wallace enlightened further: "We had a professor from Glasgow University aerospace department, and an aeronautical engineer from Princetown..." UtlllT Ju QqflQQ system presented as a platformer with classy graphics, the size of the main character is small, very small.
Everything in fact is miniaturised to show you a large section of the level you're playing on and, like Lemmings, this adds to the gameplay rather than detracting from it. Cute could be a word to describe it especially with the Merry Men - furry Lemming-like creatures.
¦g4 (D D The actual gameplay is a mix of platforming skills and problem-solving logic. In true Flashback style, Bright leaps, climbs ledges, rolls along the ground and generally looks athletic and heroic.
After stepping out of the teleporter, the player guides this thumb-sized gymnast round the landscapes with the sole intention of unlocking the Merry Men from their cells. Then with them in tow, the Benefactor must return to the teleporter so that they can be whisked away to safety.
This basic design is enhanced and added to with the various challenging and varying puzzles met along the way. How can I leap that gap to flick a switch that will then create a platform for my rescued Merry Man to leap across onto and reach the teleporter? This question and many others need answering to ensure success within the game Fortunately, to save one’s sanity, these imprisoned folk are not completely useless like the Lemmings - if they come to the edge of something dangerous, they'll stop or try and leap across.
They can also help by being picked up and hurried along or, in the more amusing cases, given a swift kick up the backside and sent up into the air to reach a previously unobtainable platform From the demo, this co-operation is one the game's strongest points as a feeling of teamwork and co-Ordi- nation comes strongly into play.
There are some 60 levels to run, leap and plot your way through. These include six different types of terrain including Caves and Egypt to Future and Blizzard.
Add to this several notorious pets of the invaders, Minniatians, who have been placed throughout the game to guard the Merry Men. Judging solely from the first three missions, the Benefactor is one tough challenge and highly addictive to boot - this is looking like the next arcade puzzler to make teenagers and middle aged folk alike forget their respective generation gaps and try and help those Merry Men to get their planet back.

AU FOR JUST £279 'AMIGA , __ 'hsight11 Expert views on the latest applications Arexx Alex Gian concludes bis tu o-part insight into mel unls to use u ben you ’re wishing to construct your own Arexx interfaces • I 377 || 377 | I 267 HOUSE | I [TRIGGER FrflHE CONSTANT I HAVC TYPE | CURRENT RIPPLE IS •2 OF 2.
A00 RIPPIE DEL RIPPLE 1 PREVIOUS NEXT INITIALIZE LORD SAVE FIRST FRAME LAST FRAME Caption and grab required n the Iasi issue we began our look at the main elements of Arexx inter-process communication.
Continuing this overview*, we will use a simple demonstration program to show how messages are received at pons, how they are decoded, and how results are returned to the caller when the messages are ‘replied" to.
The demo program is not in C. Assembler, or Basic, but in Arexx itself, so that it can Ix* understood by all readers; the principles involved can then be adapted to the programming language of your own choice.
Tlit* slight bias towards C is due to Amiga OS realities - the basic principles apply equally to any language that allows die use of Amiga shared libraries.
Almost all Arexx activity in die .Amiga system shares a common feature - the sending of an Arexx message (called a RexxMsg structure) to an Amiga port, and the processing of that message.
This applies not only when you are actually sending commands to Arexx-compatible applications. Inn also when you launch an Arexx program, or perform any other Arexx system activity, eg open the trace console or launch a function host.
To build a program with an Arexx interface at the most basic level, all we have to do is to provide it with a port and a set of meaningful commands that it can process and act on.
The structure of the messages, as well as the ports, is always the same, regardless of the actual operations they perform. In this respect, the Arexx interface is rather consistent and easy to program. The differences lie in the contents of the messages.
The structure of the RexxMsg was introduced in the last issue. Since we can only the give the broadest descriptions here, you should also obtain some other form of documentation describing the system structures; if you have nothing else, the Commodore ‘include" files contain all this information.
Of the 128 bytes of the RexxMsg , the structure in the first 20 bytes (rmjiode) identifies it as a valid Amiga Exec message. The next two fields are four-byte Amiga pointers (APTR). Neither of them concern us yet.
The next four fields, rm_Action. Rm_Resultl. Mi_Result2 and rm_Args, are probably the most important from the communications point of view.
The first three are of type LONG which simply means four bytes each. The rm_Args field has slots for 16 pointers to strings of characters in memory that must end with a 00 umuinwir -' ~ ...... JFRUNE 123 of 23.
PREVIEW | PREV FRAHE ORIGIN X ]ORIGIN Y START ERASE | 38 | 28 | SPEED j 39 [. A jPERlOD j a [amplitude ?8 I 98 | PHASE ']levcl off byte. This is a C convention. Each of these pointers is also four bytes long. In certain cases (when a message needs to return a result in a string) rm_Result2 may contain a pointer to a string (STRPTR) instead of a long value.
The rm_Action field is the most important when we want to identify an incoming message. This will inform us what exactly the message is supposed to do. In our simple example today, we take it for granted that any messages sent to our demo host will l c commands, so we do not check for this.
In later versions we will use this field to check whether incoming messages are commands or functions, and also to send special requests to Arexx itself.
However, in addition to telling us about the message, the rm_Action field also gives us some additional information through so-called modifier bits.
In our example we check whether bit 17 of this field is set, which would indicate that a result is needed. Arexx sets this bit automatically on all outgoing commands if the OPTIONS RESULTS instruction is used in the program. The result is then be placed in the special Arexx variable RESULT.
So far this is all quite straightforward, but noW: we come to the one area that might cause some confusion initially. You probably already know that Arexx strings have some limits - for instance, they may not be more than 64k long.
These limits are imposed because of certain properties that the strings need to have in order to lie managed efficiently by Arexx. All Arexx strings, including those that are used as arguments or results in Arexx messages have a special structure, Simpler macros Our program combines a number of techniques with which we are already familiar, along with some new ones that show how the messages are passed around.
I must stress once again that it is simply a demo of a command host.
It is unlikely that you would ever write an Arexx program to return values as a command host, simply because you can get exactly the same effect with a much simpler macro.
You would write it as a command host in another language, though, so Arexx is a convenient language- independent presentation medium. Another reason is that the functions of the rexxsupport.library (part of the Arexx distribution) handle a lot of the drudge work involved in opening ports ans so on.
For a beginner, this code would obscure the main point of what we are trying to do. Once you have understood the central issues you can take care of the details involved yourself, or. Even better, use one of the several PD utilities that simplify Arexx interface creation (much like we are doing with rexxsupport.library here).
Therefore be sure that you have it installed with the rxlib rexxsupport.library 0 -30 0 command, preferably in your user-startup.
Mm AREXX called the RexxArg. Tills is the second structure you need to Ix.* aware of when building Arexx interfaces.
Use the functions CreaieArgstringt) and DeleteArgstringO from the Arexx interpreter (rexxsyslib. Library).
We are also going to use some functions from the Exec.library to replace some of their counterparts in rexxsupport.library that do not allow us as much flexibility as we need.
However, both of the above mentioned libraries are standard Amiga libraries, that is. They do not have the special Arexx hook necessary in order to be used from within Arexx.
In order to lx- able to use them we will need yet another special Arexx library, called rxgen.library, and whose job it is to allow. Arexx to use non-ARexx Amiga libraries!
This library* is available on Fred Fish disk 459. And you will not be able to run our program without it.
The RexxArg is composed of four fields totalling eight bytes containing information about its size and other Arexx-specific Stuff, followed by a variable length buffer where the actual string is stored.
Yet when you look at the argument slots in the RexxMsg stmc- ture. All you see are pointers to lx g-standard null-terminated C strings. So where is the rest of the RexxArg structure? Well, by definition a pointer to RexxArg points to the beginning of the string buffer, and all the rest of the information is at a negative offset from this pointed This means that apart from its Arexx bits, a RexxArg string appears to the system just like a regular string, and yet it has these hidden "extra bits" that allow it lx* managed by Arexx.
You can well imagine that diis setup invites several memory- managenx*nt pitfalls, which could easily corrupt the Amiga's memory and make it crash if they are not handled w ith care.
However, things are not that bad. Arexx itself, in the form of the rexxsyslib.library, provides two functions which create and delete RexxArg strings easily and safely. Use them to create the strings when you need them, delete them when you are finished, and let the Arexx system worry about the details.
In most other respects, the pointer that is returned from the Interfaced!
Functions will behave exactly like a string. The inverse, of course, is not true, and if you try to delete a non-RexxArg string with a library* function you will probably cause an immediate crash.
Our program is a simple command host. It opens a port called MYPORT and recognises three commands. The command HELLO returns a result that contains a greeting and the current time, the command SlIMSQ takes twro numerical arguments and returns the sum of their squares, and the command BYE shuts everything down. Any other commands are simply ignored.
To use the program, you launch it from one Shell window , and you invoke it Irom another Arexx program launched from a second Shell, eg: rx “flPTIOHS RESULTS; ADMESS •RrPOlT* •HELLO’; SAT IESUIT* In order to create the RexxArgs for our results, we are going to Flawed example i must apologise for a small error that got past me in the example program on the CoverDisk. In line 70, in the section marked Tin place of error code* ", we create a RexxArgstrlng that is not passed on to the calling program!
As the program stands, this RexxArg will not be deleted if a result has been requested - this could lead to problems, or at least to memory not being freed.
We must either not create the string at all. Or else return it as the result in place of the current dummy 00000011fx error code. Sorry about that.
Of course a result (RexxArg) that gets returned becomes the property of the calling program and is automatically deleted by it.
Make sure it is installed in the same manner as rexxsupport.library. Basically rxgen uses information about the offsets and register use of the non-ARexx library- functions to link them in to Arexx.
The main reason that we replace the functions of the vaitpkt(portnaae) - packet=getpkttportnaae)
- reply(pack*t,0) loop with their Exec equivalents, is that the
replvO function clears the secondary result field (mi_Result2).
As such, it is useless for reluming a result which we may
want to set ourselves.
Because these functions work together, maintaining an internal system record, they have to lx* used together.
Therefore if we replace replyO we must also replace getpktO.
Furthermore, the Exec functions take the port address rather than name as argument, so we need the FindPortt) function too.
It is however acceptable and convenient to use the rexxsupport OpenPortO and ClosePortO functions, as well as the GetArgO function which returns the string in the first of the 16 argument fields - this is the actual command received.
One of the good things about the rexxsupport.library is that it checks to make sure that everything it uses is opened and shut properly. So if an Arexx program receives an external HALT command, it will ensure that all ports shut down properly.
When using the Exec.library all these niceties are your own responsibility, and a real program would require error handling code. Again this highlights the advantage of using support libraries, especially if you like doing things the easy way.
Rexxsupport also provides the very useful Next() and OffseK) functioas. The former is a bit like peekO, and the later adds offsets to addresses, but all returned values are four-byte strings, and so am serve as APTRs!
