Photogenics Tipped as the most important creative software release of 1995, Almathera's Photogenics puts unrivalled graphics power at your fingertips. Now you can try it for yourself with our exclusive demo... We were impressed with Photogenics when we reviewed il in AF68. No, dial's an understatement. We were completely and utterly amazed at the power, flexibility and ease of use of this brilliant new image processing package from Almathera. That's why Amiga Format editor. Nick Veitch described it as: “The image manipulation tool the Amiga has been waiting a long time for" and awarded the program a massive 95% - earning it the accolade of a Format Gold. And now you can find out why we were so impressed by loading up our exclusive Amiga Format Photogenics demo. You can't save your creations but in just about every other way, the program is complete - you can still load images in a variety of different formats and then you can use Photogenics' remarkable array of tools to do whatever you want to them in full AGA colour. Unfortunately, this means that our demo only runs on an AGA Amiga or an Amiga equipped with Workbench 3.1. If you don't have AGA you'll only be able to view your creations in 16 grey scales. Other than that owners of non-AGA Amigas get exactly the same program as for the A1200 and A4000.

Welcome to Amiga Format. By choosing this magazine you have just made a very wise decision: this is the world's most popular Amiga magazine. And that means more Amiga users know us, trust us and choose to read us than anyone else.
Why? Because Amiga Formats readers know they can trust our judgment and buying recommendations. Because we thoroughly test products, for one thing, and because we're not afraid to tell the truth.
No matter how harsh it may be.
The proof? Commodore itself regularly chooses Amiga Format to prepare special editions of the magazine to be bundled with its machines. And surveys have consistently shown that retailers trust Amiga Formats reviews above any other magazine. ¦ ™ I So you know you can read Amiga Format ™ with confidence. Welcome to the world's U | U I biggest community of Amiga users! Publishing Nick Veitch, Editor _ This JUIo In View After a bloodless coup, your favourite Amiga magazine has a brand new editor - well, a hardly-used one anyway.
Hello. Yes. (hat's right it’s me. I'm sure a lot of you were perplexed and horrified to learn that Steve Jarratt was off to bigger and better things, but fear not. For your favourite mag could not be left without a steady (ish) hand at the tiller. For, haring successfully pulled the Zorro card from the stone, I am now the editor of the world's best and biggest-selling Amiga magazine.
While this is undoubtedly good news for me, what with having to do twice as much work every month and being blamed for everything that goes wrong, w hat exactly does it mean for you? That's a very good question, and one that can only really be answered by seeing what you think of the next few issues and writing in to tell me.
I know that all of us here aim to give you a month's worth of entertainment, information, excitement and thought-provoking reviews, features, news, tutorials and help, as well as a forum for expressing your views and opinions.
One thing that certainly will not change is Amiga Format's commitment to truth and accuracy. I'm not saying we never make mistakes, even we do that occasionally. But I will say that you will never be deliberately misled. We don't forget that it’s the readers, not the manufacturers or distributors, that make ?
This magazine what it is. And we certainly T don't think that you would be daft jfe enough to continue buying the magazine if we consistently gave high scores to bad products.
So there you go. We're honest, and we know that's the best thing to be because we're smart enough to realise that you’re smart ‘ enough to realise if v we were not truthful.
Or something like that anyway. Well, I'm glad we got that sorted out.
Proceedings to protest against any of the liquidation agreements being processed in the US rather than the Bahamas, where the company is registered. One of the main differences between the regulations under the different systems is that under US law the investigators would be able to do a much more thorough probe of the finances in the period leading up to liquidation. Hmmm. The really bad thing is that this is likely to hold up the proceedings for up to a month.
To compensate for the lack of an announcement, we have a great interview with an ex-Commodore engineer, who spills the beans on some of the fantastic things the company was planning before liquidation and may well still be planning when a deal comes through.

Something which has undoubtedly been on your mind over the last 30 odd days is what on earth is going on with Commodore? I really wish we had something new to tell you, but at the moment Commodore UK are keeping mum.
It has been hinted that the resurrection of the company will not be as simple as “Commodore buys self, business as usual", but that the new company will have pulled off a master stroke. Just what this involves is uncertain, but rest assured that as soon as we have more concrete details, you'll be among the First 100.000- odd people we tell.
The latest, unconfirmed, news is that now Irving Gould and Medhi Ali, former top brass of the company, have finally.lhrowii their oar into the I I hope you will agree that the ponderous !¦ CBM situation doesn't seem to have ¦ adversely affected the Amiga market too W much. There have been some cracking new W releases, both in terms of games and perhaps ( more extraordinarily, in terms of some of the F hardware coming out. I am looking forward to the Cyberstorm 060 accelerator and version 4.0 of Lightwaiv. Both due pretty soon. But just lake a look at the stuff we have had to pack into this
month's issue.
The .Amiga seems to have held its own over Christmas in the games market, as the biggest platform in terms of sales. This is set to remain the case for some time, judging by the likes of Cuardian. Bloodnet and even Death Mash which, altboiigh it gets only a reasonable score, is sure to attract cult status.
Well, that's about it for this month. I hope you enjoy this issue and if you have any ideas about what you would like to see in the magazine, please drop me a line. ® POWER COMPUTING LTD 44a b Stanley St. Bedford MK4I 7RW Tel 01234 273000 Fax OI234 352207 Next Day £5.00 2-3 Days £2.50 Saturday £10.00 Deliveries are subject to stock availability Allow up to 7 days for cheques to clear r _____ i TOWER CASES ¦ The A1200 Tower comes complete with 3 x

tlem_ WITH THIS MONTH'S COVERDISKS YOU CAN... Manipulate
images to your heart's content with Photogenics, another
exclusive for Amiga Format.
Try to do better than Alex Ferguson with Audiogenic's brilliant footie management game. Super League Manager.
It'll take all your football knowledge and planning skills to get your team to the top of the league.
Snip a r League MATCH OF THE DAY The CD” and A1200 versions of Super League Manager will have an inbuilt arcade bit based on Wembley International Soccer, while the A500 game will be linked with Emlyn Hughes International - available free of charge to those who purchase this version. You’ll be able to take charge of the team directly when they're chosen to appear on Match Of The Day.
Super league Manager is a fooiball management game with a big difference. To be a winner you bave to be intuitive, making the right decisions at the right time, though you’ll have to do your homework on the opposition as well as keep a beady eye on your own team. There are no detailed stats about every aspect of each player's game it’s up to you to ensure that their training is interesting and varied
- make them run cross-country every day and you're going to have
one unhappy team on your hands. The trainer gives vou the
low-down on how each player's performance has changed from the
previous week. All players are different - giving them a wage
rise might not make them happy, though it often helps.
All the club's finances are at your disposal and the weekly Gazette is a mine of information so study it well. Remember though, you won’t get your first ropy until after the first match. You can scout and bid for other team’s players, but make realistic bids otherwise your counterpart tells you to go away.
Sufier league Manager trulv is one of the biggest demos we've ever had. Basically, this is the full game (every feature is included), but you only have six weeks and six matches to prove your worth. Of course, all the info we need to include here takes up a full game manual but having had lo condense it into two pages, you'll nnd much to explore that we couldn't find space to explain in detail. Everything is accessed by clicking on the icons, so investigate the desk, then get the lads ready for the match. Enjoy.
BACKING UP YOUR COVERDISK We've been scouring high and low for the best Coverdisks to bring you and this month we reckon we've come up with two excellent programs guaranteed to set your pulses racing.
Copying your Coverdisk is very simple. Just follow the stages below... Iboot up with your Workbench disk, and find the Shell icon, in your system drawer.
Double-click on this to go into the Shell.
EXPLORING YOUR DESK... Ithe telephone: your access to the outside world enabling you to barter for players at other clubs, but an incoming call could be the chairman, physiotherapist, the sports reporter from the Gazette or even the police.
2 Fixtures: a week-to-week guide of all your forthcoming matches.
3 Manager: click on the name icon to enter your own name - preface it with Mr. Mrs. Miss, Ms or whatever you prefer.
4 The day of the week: click on Tuesday when you've decided that Wednesday is long overdue and the day's work is done.
5 Tea coffee: remember to slurp your drink - forget and people might think you have other things on your mind. The tea lady will spread gossip if you don't drink up.
6 Water the plant regularly: if you neglect it the chairman may feel that you are unfit to run a football club.
7 Incoming mail: best to keep up-to-date with correspondence and remember to be kind to the fans, for they pay your wages.
8 The Gazette: the football manager's Bible. Every Sunday, after the week's fixtures the Gazette rates every player, reports on every match and Emlyn Hughes (God bless *im) trundles through the week’s latest soccer gossip.
Team info: the low-down on every player, his salary, and all the training options which you can specify for a particular day of the week. On Friday, the icon changes and from here you pick the team for Saturday's match.
Who's who: every other team and every other player in the four divisions are listed here.
And you can bid for any one of them, providing you have the funds available. Click on the fold in the top right to cycle through the team.
Calculator: contains all the info regarding club finances. You can ask for a larger overdraft, as well as set the admission price at the gate.
N| Horfcbmth SisT fr» df.: t. dfl: 2 Type in the following line exactly as it appears here, taking care to put the spaces in the correct places: DISKCOPY FROM DFO: TO DFO: 3 When asked for the source disk, insert the Coverdisk and press Return. All of the information on this disk will then be copied from the disk into memory.
4 Once your Amiga has read the info, it will ask for the destination disk. Insert the disk you want to copy to and press Return. All information on this disk will be destroyed.
Click on the top right of the page to skirt through the formations and when you're happy, click on Set. Now you can pick the team. For instance, if you want Scott Hacket to play at number eight, click on the number and the shirt will turn blue. Alternatively, click in the top right-hand comer to go through the other players. Once all the shirts are blue, click the mouse button and then click on Friday and you're ready for the big match.
5 On an unexpanded machine, the Amiga may ask for the source disk again, as it copies in chunks. Finally, type Enddi to close down the Shell. Your copy is complete.
DISK NOT WORKING?
We take every care to test the Coverdisk software, but Future Publishing cannot accept any responsibility for any data loss or other damage occurring during its use. If your disk is faulty, send it back, including a stamped addressed envelope for a free replacement to: Amiga Format (insert the name of the disk) Disk.

Photogenics Tipped as the most important creative software release of 1995, Almathera's Photogenics puts unrivalled graphics power at your fingertips. Now you can try it for yourself with our exclusive demo... We were impressed with Photogenics when we reviewed il in AF68. No, dial's an understatement. We were completely and utterly amazed at the power, flexibility and ease of use of this brilliant new image processing package from Almathera.
That's why Amiga Format editor. Nick Veitch described it as: “The image manipulation tool the Amiga has been waiting a long time for" and awarded the program a massive 95% - earning it the accolade of a Format Gold.
And now you can find out why we were so impressed by loading up our exclusive Amiga Format Photogenics demo.
You can't save your creations but in just about every other way, the program is complete - you can still load images in a variety of different formats and then you can use Photogenics' remarkable array of tools to do whatever you want to them in full AGA colour.
Unfortunately, this means that our demo only runs on an AGA Amiga or an Amiga equipped with Workbench 3.1. If you don't have AGA you'll only be able to view your creations in 16 grey scales. Other than that owners of non-AGA Amigas get exactly the same program as for the A1200 and A4000.
FINDING YOUR WAY AROUND FREEHAND TOOL: A Opaint -like freehand draw tool. Use it to sketch and touch up your Photogenics images.
FILLED AREA: Like the continuous freehand draw tool but the area you draw is automatically filled.
LINE TOOL: Draws straight lines between two points.
POLYGON TOOL: Just like Dpaint. This tool enables you to create filled and outline polygons. Draw your polygon by clicking the left mouse button to mark each point and then click the right mouse button to close the polygon.
BOX TOOL: Draws filled and outline boxes and rectangles.
CIRCLE TOOL: Like the ellipse tool but restricted to perfect circles only. Can draw filled and outline circles.
ZOOM OUT: If you've zoomed in on an image then you can zoom out again so that the entire image is displayed by clicking on this gadget.
MAGNIFY: Zooms in on the current window. There is no separate window for the zoom, the current window contains the resized image and you can use the scroll bars to move around the magnified view.
FILL TOOL: Using this, you can fill with defined tolerance (the fill tool can cope with shades of the same colour) and use whatever paint modes you like, including a clone option for some weird effects.
CUT BRUSH: Enables you to cut a rectangular region from the current image which Photogenics transfers to a new window. Think of it as a handy cropping tool.
PIPETTE: Select the current colour from anywhere within the Photogenics image.
SMEAR: Create interesting effects by smearing your pixelised 'paint' on your digital canvass just like rubbing your finger over the image when it's still wet.
PAINT MODE: Clicking on this button brings up the paint mode selector which lets you pick the current painting mode from a scrolling list. Combining brush modes with paint modes can produce some startling effects.
BRUSH PREFERENCES: Click here to adjust the size, pressure and transparency of the current brush.
UNDO PAINTING: Clears all of your painting since the last fix operation. Use carefully.
BRUSH SELECTOR: Clicking on this button brings up the brush selector from where you can choose your brush type from a scrolling list. The brush options include crayon, airbrush and pencil.
FIX: Makes all paint operations performed since the last fix permanent. You can still undo this operation if the undo feature is enabled. It's vitally important that once you're happy with a paint operation you fix it before carrying out any further work - so that you don't lose hours of work in the event of a mishap.
FILL PAINT LAYER: Fills the current paint layer with the selected colour.
PHOTOGENICS AT-A-GLANCE IMAGE SELECTOR: The image selector displays thumbnail representations of every image you load. Rather than select an image by finding its preview window (which can become difficult if more than a couple of images have been loaded), you can simply click on its icon and it springs into view. These icons can also be picked up and dropped into either the secondary image or alpha channel boxes.
? | Brushes [ a fiirBrush I BallPen Cloth Crayon FeltTipPen u_ „i, _ _ n _ _ napKepren Neon Pencil Sponge 'rent Secondar PREVIEW: Photogenics can load images in a variety of formats such as IFF, JPEG and GIF. Each image you load is displayed in its own window on the Photogenics screen as a HAM8 preview (or as grey scale if you have a non-AGA machine). Resizing any one of these preview windows automatically resizes the preview image, but doesn't effect the image data itself.
Ill Urates |BI& NegBright Pamt Pixelise Posterise Randonise Refract Roll RubMix RubTexture RubThru RubTint Saturation ¦ Sharpen fj ShiftHue § ShiPtRGB 1 Solarize Hi Stellate 1 Tile III TmeBrick Tint v ALPHA CHANNEL: An alpha channel is a mask that sits over your image. Any paint or effect you apply only affects the parts of the image not covered by the alpha channel. Paint affects the current image in proportion to the brightness of the corresponding pixels within the alpha channel.
BRUSH PALETTE: Lets you choose an alternative brush.
Photogenics offers a variety of brushes such as an airbrush, watercolour, crayon and neon.
STATUS: It's worth keeping your eye on the Photogenics screen title bar because it contains all manner of useful status information, such as how much memory you've got left and the current paint and brush mode.
Jjgjjg Rose.JP6 mode: Rub f hr a, flirBrush size Z4J [undo] Chip 166BK Fast 1325k - 5:21ph g TOOLBOX: The heart of Photogenics is its toolbox window which contains the program's many painting functions. For a rundown of what each tool does, refer to the diagram on page 12.
PAINT MODE: When you click on the mode button in Photogenics' toolbox, this window appears. The paint mode requester lets you pick the current paint mode from an enormous list. As always, the best way to get to grips with them is to experiment.
SECONDARY IMAGE: Some effects (rubthru, for example) require you to have a picture in the secondary buffer.
This enables you to paint through your selected image to reveal the image in the secondary buffer. Placing an image icon in this box by dragging it over from the image selector automatically makes that picture the secondary image.
PHOTOGENICS TUTORIALS Our illustrious sister magazine, Amiga Shopper, is running a series of Photogenics tutorials starting with the April issue which goes on sale on Tuesday, March 7.
The six-part series by graphics expert Graeme Sandiford will be based on the Amiga Format Coverdisk and will show you how to get the most out of Almathera's sensational package.
In the meantime here's a brief tutorial to get you started with your Photogenics Coverdisk.
1 Select the Loaders option from the Windows pull-down menu so that Photogenics' loaders window appears This window displays all the available loaders. The full version of Photogenics features many more loaders, but for the sake of this tutorial, all we'll need is the plasma loader. Click on plasma and a window appears asking you to select the size of your new plasma image. Click on 320x256 and then click the OK button to continue Photogenics generates a plasma image which is displayed in a preview window.
2 Don't worry if your plasma image doesn't look exactly the same as ours - because it's a fractal image, there's a good chance that the one you see will be very different from ours. Once you've finished admiring your plasma image, resize it to a more manageable dimension Now click on the freehand mode button and then draw on to the image with the left mouse button held down Impressive eh!
3 Now that we’ve added a paint layer to our image (all painting operations remain a separate layer until you fix them), let's have some fun. Click on the mode button to display the mode window You'll notice that the current paint mode is Paint but you can change this by selecting a different mode from the list. When you select a mode it's automatically applied to the freehand drawing we did earlier Have a play with the paint modes on offer. It's particularly worth experimenting with Solarize. Mix.
Emboss. AddDust and Falsecolour.
Your Coverdisk should be working fine, but if not, these hints, tips and corrections may sort out the problem for you quickly and easily.
GOT A PROBLEM WITH YOUR COVERDISK?
CALL 0191-385 2627 MUSIC-X AF58 A600 owners, and anyone else with only Chip RAM, should follow the instructions for A1200 owners, otherwise they will find they have little room for samples. Also, many people seem to be getting a message- regarding missing fonts. The fonts are on the disk, OK! If you boot up from the Music-X program disk, like it says to do in the instructions, there is no problem.
PAGESETTER 3 SOLUTIONS Although it is not actually a Coverdisk, some of you have been experiencing problems with PageSetter 3, the upgrade to our great PageSetter 2 Coverdisk (AF63).
The problem seems to involve people running this software from a floppy drive. It has to be said that Gold Disk's install script and documentation are less than perfect.
Firstly, you do not actually have to run the floppy install program to run the software, you can just boot from disk one and run the program from disk two (although the print option will not work). To solve these problems, the easiest thing to do is make some additions to a copy of your Workbench disk. Here are the steps you should follow: If you want to boot off any other disk, copy the fonts into the FONTS: drawer of your boot-up disk. This is not complicated - it is how the Amiga works (and the PC and the Mac).
PAGESETTER 2 AF63 There are no problems with this program, but a few people seem to be having difficulty with fonts.
PageSetter 2 works with CompuGraphic fonts, but it needs an .ate file. If your font doesn't have one, PageSetter 2 won't recognise it.
Assign Fonts: PS1Fonts:Fonts Assign CGFonts: PS3Fonts:Fonts Assign s: PS3Page:
3. Now save the file (using Escape then x if you are using ED)
and reboot your machine with this disk.
4. From Workbench, select and delete the Tools and Utilities
drawers (or otherwise make room for the library files).
5. Open a Shell and type the following: copy PS3lnstall:s page«?
S: copy PS3lnstail:libs FontEngine.library Libs: endcli (If
you are using a GB keymap, the superscript 3 is obtained by
pressing Alt-3)
6. Reboot from this disk again. Insert the PS3Page disk and
double-click on the program’s icon. It should now run, and
print to your selected printer.
7. To install more fonts, you should use the original Install
program, because this updates the special font list PageSetter
uses to tell which fonts are available.
THEME PARK AF64 Not a problem, but a cheat for this rather good demo of a rather excellent game.
If you press the C key during the loading screen a message appears, informing you that the cheat mode is active. You will now have lots of cash to buy oodles of rides and things!
LIBS, FONTS AND ALL THAT There are lots of files and commands associated with the normal operation of software. You may not see them until you try to install software: LIBRARIES - These arc compact routines which are compiled as a separate library. They contain commonly-used routines so programmers can write new utilities without having to re-code all the basic routines all the lime. Libraries should be located in the LIBS drawer of your start-up disk.
FONTS - Amiga fonts come in many varieties, but the most common are bitmap fonts. The majority of programs use the system fonts, but some use their own. In this case, the font must be present in the FONTS: drawer of your start-up disk.
ASSIGN - The assign command is used to make pathname shortcuts. It does this by creating a logical or virtual device - one that doesn't exist, but points to a pathname that does. The usage is: Assign devlce name path name So, if you had installed a program from disk called Point and installed it to a hard drive in the utilities drawer, your command might look like: Assign Paint: hdO:Utilities 3 HOW TO CONTACT AMIGA FORMAT The best way to get an answer from Amiga Format is to make sure you're addressing your letter to the right person (or, indeed, department)...

Cl- That’s correct.
© So that w-ill make it a lot easier to create something resembling Ami iUX)S portable on to the HP RISC?
CL: Exactly. That was one of the principal reasons for choosing the HP chip.
© So you’re effectively creating a custom HP- RISC for the .Amiga. CL: Exactly, that was the plan. We’re basically What happened to all the dinosaur games? There used to be loads, but suddenly they all disappeared. Amiga Power investigates, and explores some intriguing new dinosaur game extinction theories. And! There’s an in-depth review of Empire's Dawn Patrol, a couple of our fine Coverdisks (although we’re not absolutely sure what'll be on them yet - an arcade- perfect Pacman, probably, and perhaps a demo of the excellent Guardian), and the next bit of Cam's popular Cannon Fodder 2 guide.
Amiga Power - it makes all other Amiga magazines extinct.
Jonathan Davies, editor, Amiga Power TOTAL COMPUTER SUPPLIES Amiga Format has stopped taking advertisements from Total Computer Supplies because we have received several complaints against them from readers.
© As we understand it, the Hewlett Packard RISC chip had been chosen as the basis for future Amiga development?
CI~ That is correct.
© Did the Amiga design team lake the decision to go to HP RIS(: or was it Commodore?
CL: It was a Commodore decision. We spent a lot of time looking at available processors and trying to decide which one best met the needs that we had in mind. We chose it based on a number of different concerns: first of all, compatibility with existing products. HP, because of their having bought out Apollo (graphic workstations developers), have an interest that their processor is 68000-compatible, so there’s a 68000 compatible emulation mode for the PA-RISC © Docs that exist already?
CL: Yes, that already exists.
AMIGA GAMES OUTSELL RIVALS Amiga gam** accounted for more than SO par cant of all salat on floppy disk over Christmas according to tha latatt figures relaasad by Gallup.
SansJMt World Of Soccer was tha biggest-selling game on any format and sold eight times as many copies as the second placed tMe according to Gallup Senior Software Analyst Dorian Bloch. ‘In weak 52 of 1994 Amiga titles accounted for more than 50 per cent of all games sold on floppy disk.
And Amiga budget games accounted for 60 per cant of tha market* ha said.
PC games ware left trailing in second place thanks to the SWOS sales.
"It was certainly a rosy Christmas for the Amiga.” said Mr Bloch.
Chris Ludwig was one of the last people working for Commodore before the company went bust.
Here he gives a fascinating insight into Commodore's plans and what the future might hold for the next generation of Amigas.
Amiga Shopper has been reborn. The March issue has been redesigned, we have gone full colour and increased the number of pages of top- quality features and reviews too. Plus we have stuck two brilliant disks firmly on to the front cover. Coverdisk 1 is a special version of DICE 3.0, the popular Amiga C development system and Coverdisk 2 has a complete database listing every product ever reviewed in AS and the best of our top 100 PD programs. We have a massive feature on programming languages and a review of Ramiga's Z5 system. This issue is so packed I've run out of room to tell you about it
so buy it!
Sue Grant editor, Amiga Shopper O Is dial emulation in haidw*arc?
Cl.: It’s both, basically. The instruction architecture is similar to a 68000 in many ways and there’s some software emulation tricks that can be done as well, so between those two pieces it makes migrating easy. It doesn't guarantee compatibility, but it makes the migration path much shorter.
© HP Ls doing that work themselves?
MEET THE UGLY SISTERS “Whoever takes over the company I hope they have a driving instinct and vision to bring forth the best that the platform has "Our system will Avin e&ij'nBj ¦ ¦ - uoducta. Which iub »r Hie very end of oeat tne pants actu rake it to n £et becaifle the peo at the top have a UK Cat fflUKlWMCUeUKJMdea of where they want to go, and that's very important.” ? |The Baguley Column lP~l|E?- I A V creating a custom PA-RISC chip based on the PA- 150, the latest one, that would allow us to have really fantastic performance.
'2- How far have you got with that work?
CL: We’ve got software simulations of the chip set running. Essentially. We’d be taking the planned sound enhancements for AAA as well as all the graphics enhancements that we’ve designed for the RISC release and obviously the CPU port there as well. You’d just need some other standard pans and you’ve basically got a one-chip solution, that's scalable. Another reason for choosing the PA-RISC was that the PA-RISC Is designed around allowing you to have a multiprocessor system, with othei processors acting as enabling processors. Then we could have higher end systems where our chip is actually
just a subprocessor doing graphics work while another PA- RISC is doing the major computation.
'Z- So tell us what AmignDos would look like «xi such a machine. In what way would it Ik* able to retain the AmigaDas that we know?
CL: The plan was simply to port AmigaDos to the chip. So Exec will be ported, graphics will be ported. Intuition will be ported, all portions of AmigaDos that currently exist will be ported, the idea being that the system will be wholly an Amiga, with the capability of running Windows NT as well. Because it’s a PA-RISC. There will already be native compiled versions of NT.
You’re basically talking about a box that can run two Operating Systems. Three if you count Hewlett Packard’s system.
The- new AmigaDos would not Ik* compatible with existing software?
CL: That’s correct, people would have to recompile their existing software. But, again, because of the chip’s degree of compatibility with the 68000 line that shouldn't be a gargantuan effort.
'7j Is all of this something that can realistically Ik* done now when someone ends up buying the Amiga name?
Cla Absolutely. It’s a matter of ensuring that there’s some vision at the top of the company in order to let something like this go through.
O You’ve had more contact with other potential buy-out teams apart from the Commodore UK management team?
CI Yes, definitely. We’ve had more contact with teams that have gone away now.
• Zi Do you have a personal favourite buyer? Who has most
impressed you?
CL: All I can really say Is. Whoever lakes over the company 1 hope they have a driving instinct and vision to bring forth the best that the platform has to offer.
O Would this include CEI and the UK Commodore team?
Cl- Yeah... O You don’t sound wry sure.
CL: It’s difficult to say. I think that the UK team have a real clear idea of where they want to go, and that's very important.
O Is the AAA chip set definitely out?
CL: I don’t know that it’s definitely out. Dave Haynie spent a lot of time getting a system out that would, at least from a hardware perspective, work. 1 think the big problem with it Is that in the long-term we’d be better off trying to leapfrog the feature-set entirely so that we have something new and innovative, and that’s why we focused on the RISC-3D stuff.
The specifications of the AAA seemed pretty impressive. Is the custom RISC really that much better than AAA?
CL: Oh yes, definitely. Our system will beat the pants off a Saturn. We’ve designed it around being a really fantastic system, exercising the best of the resources that Commodore's always had. We've got some really good stuff planned.
O So you can envisage having a wide range ol Amiga products, from tin* games player to the professional user - is that hard to market?
CL: Yes it has been hard to market. That’s it. It’s one of our assets, and getting rid of it by just concentrating on one end would be a mistake.
C- So you've got built-in there all sorts ol texture- mapping and other capabilities?
CL: Yes. Basically the blitter has grown features that allow it to do texture mapping and other stuff but faster and with better video modes, so that we’ve got a greater resolution than the consoles have, because at the high end we’re going to need that resolution.
• This is an edited version of an Interview by Brace Lepper end
Brian Biakri which appeared in french magazine Amiga News.
Bought a new CD today.
Protest Songs by Prefab Sprout. Nothing surprising in that, you may say. All you overpaid computer journalists spend your ill-gotten gains on wine, women and song. While that's a point of debate, the fart is that I already had a copy of this album. However, it was on vinyl, and, as everybody knows, vinyl is completely passe these days. Everybody who is anybody now buys Cds.
With only a few traditionalists and Djs clinging on to the ancient vinyl.
I suppose in a weird way computers bear a certain resemblance to the record industry. Every few years some great new breakthrough is announced which renders everything that has gone forward invalid. Got an A500? Forget it. Go out and get yourself an A1200.
Suddenly the computer you spent so much money on is out of date, and all the kids on the streets are sneering at your old. Out of date, computer system.
"But it hasn't got the latest XB37 flibber chip in it! It can only do 23 million operations per second! You can't play Mortal Street Fighter VIII on it! How can you do anything with that?"
Many people think that switching from vinyl to Cds was a cynical exercise by the record companies to get more cash out of their customers. But I think that computer companies have a valid reason for constantly striving to update their machines. As technology advances, people expert more from it They expert more flashing lights and bigger and better games bursting with stunning FMV sequences. Serious programs continue to get more and more complex, and the memory and processor requirements continue to get bigger and bigger.
Given that computer companies make their money out of selling computers, of course they try and keep selling you new ones. Unless you take the somewhat questionable route of charging a royalty from the programmers, they have to make their money through selling hardware.
I remember a letter I received a few months back from an Amiga owner. They were complaining about how they couldn't get any new software for their machine. Why, said this Amiga user, was it that he couldn't get any new programs to run on his Amiga?
What sort of machine did this user have? A 512K Amiga 500 running Workbench 1.2. The unfortunate truth of the matter is that computers are expensive. Not just in terms of buying the machines in the first place, but also in terms of keeping up with the rest of the world. If you buy a new computer you should not really expert it to last any longer than two or three years. Not that it will break (although computers do have an annoying habit of breaking down just after the warranty has run out), but it will be out of date, and the amount of new software released for it will begin to dwindle.
Before anybody says it I know that old machines such as the Amstrad CPC are still going. Indeed, Future still publish a magazine for Amstrad computers Amstrad Action), so there are obviously still users out there.
However, they are few and far between, and they really are the hard core of fanatical users. Unless you fancy being a fanatic, you have to look to the future.
Anyway, I don't own a record player any more, and the CD only cost me a fiver. So there!

Photogenics upgraded HiQ have launched a new range of PowcrStation upgrades to give a whole new look to your A1200.
Following hot on the heels of Ramiga's Z5 Tower system (reviewed page 86). The new HiQ upgrades provide an A1200 or A600 with some of the benefits of a big-box Amiga but without the cost.
HiQ are no strangers to the retrofit business - veteran Amiga owners may remember the A1500 casing which the company- launched for the A500 bark in 1990. Instead of attempting to manufacture everything from scratch (like the A1500), however, HiQ’s latest PowerStations draw upon the vast pool of quality multimedia cases designed for PC compatibles.
The PowerStations don't recase your A1200 or A600 - instead, all three simply extend the expansion capabilities of your machine's existing casing.
The top-of-lhe-range PowcrStation is the Multimedia system (pictured left) which is available either as a complete SCSI CD- ROM system for £329.95 or as an empty casing (complete with all necessary cabling) for £129.95, Main features include a 200 watt power supply which drives both your Amiga and any peripherals, five drive bays for the addition of CD-ROMs, additional floppy drives, a high-speed SCSI-2 interface (based around HiSoft's Squirrel) and twin 10 watt speakers with volume, bass, treble and balance controls.
A MiniTower Power-Station system is also available for £99.95 (empty case) and £299.95 with a 200 watt power supply, five drive bays and the option of a SCSI-2 interface.
Check out next month’s AF for the definitive review of both PowerStations. HiQ can be contacted on 0181 909 2092.
Panasonic get smart!
Panasonic have slashed the cost of colour printing with the release of their new KX-P2135 24-pin colour dot matrix which has a retail price of £189 - the street price may be as low as £150.
For the price of a 9-pin dot matrix, this new printer offers a print resolution of 360x360 dpi thanks to Its 24-pin print head. Panasonic's unique QuietPrinter technology provides a whisper-like operating noise level of
43. 5 dBA with print speeds of up to 250cps in draft mode.
Built in to the printer is a 20-sheet feeder plus a fiat-belt push tractor feed. Add to this the printer's wide range of fonts (three draft and seven NLQ) - each available In 10 different sizes plus proportional spacing - and it's easy to see why the KX-P2135 offers such good value for money.

Recording to a recent report in industry bible.
Computer Trade Weekly, sales of console games fell by 51% over the heavy-selling period of Chrimble 1994.
Does that surprise anybody? It might surprise the average parent who forked out for a console because they thought that because it had a chip inside, it was therefore a computer. No, don't laugh (hell, go away and develop something that makes a SNES print out a word, any word... and you've made your millions).
Fit the Stdft of this boom, people were wandering around the shops looking at what appeared to be computer graphics and listening to what sounded like computer sounds on machines that looked hi-tech. These machines were not burdened with a need for technical knowledge. None of the ’New From Japan!' Signs had ROM or RAM. HD, SCSI. Agnus. Port FDD. Bps. Dpi. VGA, SVGA or I O on them. These machines could be used by anybody. Go on, get one for £229 and a free game! Easy.
“Can my niece use one of these things for anything other than games?" Came the question - I asked it myself in a survey for New Computer Express.
“Not right now sir, but there are plans for peripheral add-on devices that will enable your child to interface with the Japanese stock exchange, create paintings and even play games... er, communicate telecommunicatively with their mates... erm colleagues at school."
"How much are the games?" Quoth me.
"Well you won't need to worry about that for a while sir. Altered BeastlSuper Mario will keep your little ‘un going for ages and by the time he's...“ "My niece is a she actually..." "Of course she is sir... by the time she's finished with that then all the other games out now will be cheaper. These things are toys you know sir. There's infinite amounts of gameplay... erm.. interactivity to be had. And the more people who buy these machines, the cheaper the games will get. Market forces sir."
Well, yes. The games have got cheaper. Sony has just dumped a million carts on the market for around £4.99. This entire console boom was a glorified Mighty Morphin' Ninja Sylvannia Hoola Hoop from the kick-off (have you played that on a console?). Nothing productive was ever going to come from these bits of plastic - nay. Nay Tim, there is the Sega channel in the USA! - Well, I rest my case.
The saddest upshot of this marketing duck-shoot is that millions of kids who could have been learning to program, type, write music paint and draw creatively, have been reduced to the levels of twitching conduits for more ad-spend.

NO ID I don’t want you to get the idea that I have anything against consoles. I don't. They are fine and dandy in their place. What I object to is the rubbish being spouted in the mainstream press that because the consoles have reached some kind of nadir, the rest of the home computer world must suffer. There should be no correlation here people! But, because of the cackophany (sic) spouting from the ad departments of the leisure industry (who, by the way, were well aware of the unmitigated tripe that they were talking) every other non-IBM PC or Mac will be tarred with the same brush.
Hrammph and pishaw! The Amiga must survive.

* • y T • OBI The original. Frontier: Elite II, scored an
impressive 90 per cent in our review in AFS4.
Braben’s closer encounters One of ihe most popular Amiga games ever is Frontier: Elite II. And in lime honoured tradition, Gametek are releasing a sequel. Frontier: First F.nrounters for both A1200 and CD».
Writer David Brabcn is one of the biggest names in game design, responsible for evergreen oldies Elite and Virus. Again, the action takes place in an 'astronomically correct universe', though you can be sure we'll check its accuracy.
Gametek claim First Encounters will boast a host of new features including new ships, enhanced combat sequences and a band of alien fiends, The Thargoids, to battle. As in Elite II the aim is trade and raise money to buy bigger, more powerful ships and embark on wanton destruction in galaxies afar. Due in March.
Tactical Manager 2 Football management games, eh? Can't seem to tail, particularly in the charts. Black I-egend's detailed Tactical Manager hit the number one spot last year and the sequel is almost complete. Daringly-titled Tactical Manager 2, it will feature improved graphics and menus, an increase in the difficulty level as well as a plethora of other extra bits fans of footie management will no doubt appreciate. Whether the enhancements warrant another full-price release remains to Ik- seen. And see we shall, in the month of March.
Eighty per cent rated (, F’66) seafaring trading game. Voyages OJDiscovery has yet to be released due to problems in translation from the German version. Fear not. For it is due any time now. Black lx-gend also have racing games Turbo Trax and leading Ixtp on the boil, more of which, next month.
W0LFENSTEIN CLONE Grandslam are working on an, as yet unnamed 3D Wolfenstein-clone.
Wolfenstein is a first-person perspective shoot-em-up which has appeared on PC and Macintosh and by jove, it would be nice to see something similar on Amiga.
It's still in infancy development-wise but _ tlu tZT ihOUld b*UPOnUS 0004000 T I WO™ l079O In the more immediate future, Will Grandslam’s new game match the Mac Grandslam are working on an upgrade to and PC version o* Wolfenstein7 the CD31 version of Nick Faldo's Championship Coif, which features improved graphics and most reassuringly, a more concise control method.
And there's more. The mighty sounding Seventh Sword Of Mendor, you won't be surprised to learn, is a role-playing game. Your task, when the game is released, if you choose to purchase it, is to step into the land of Arcuran and find the aforementioned sword. It all takes place in a massive gaming area and we should have a comprehensive review next month. If it's finished.

COMPETITION In conjunction with AF, Wella Shockwaves have a
complete Amiga rendering system worth over £3,000 to give away!
Invisible Cities and Flair are working on a new game called Shockwaves Express, and here is your opportunity to actually design elements of the game itself - the logos, the characters, the levels, the graphics... if your ideas are cool enough to make it into the game, you stand the chance of getting your name in the credits - f and walking way with three f grand's worth of Amiga kit!
EXPRESS I Win an Amiga 4000, 2 f with 16Mb RAM, 9 a Warp Engine accelerator and a copy of Lightwave 3D!
COMPETITION!
Wella Shockwaves are gonna put you in CONTROL!
Shockwaves Express: the plot... Shockwaves Express is set in the future world of 2007 where information is a valuable commodity. But with a network overrun by hackers, corporations have been forced to abandon cyberspace in favour of more conventional means.
Teams of skilled street skaters cruise The Strip acting as info-couriers delivering data by hand - for a price.
Progressing through eight different ‘hoods, the player has to meet and beat the challenge of delivering these mysterious info-packs using skateboards, hoverboards, surfboards and snowboards. Making your way from location to location, you have to avoid obstacles, defeat rival gangs and react quickly under adverse conditions.
But as you fulfill each contract and progress through the game, it becomes obvious that there's more to the job than meets the eye... Shockwaves Express: the compo... Invisible Cities and Flair want you to help design Shockwaves Express. We need narty new characters to take control of, with names, uniforms, skills, attributes and emblems.
We need enemy characters to inhabit the different areas of The Strip. We need different sort of obstacles for the couriers to overcome. And we need a radical Shockwaves Express logo.
But don't stop there. If there’s anything else you want to design - entire levels (it's a sprawling eight-way scroller), buildings, boards, vehicles - just let rip with your imagination. The more outrageous, the better.
Obviously this is going to take some time so you have a couple of months to the closing date - let's get everything in by Friday, March 31, eh? Send all your artwork, scripts and Amiga graphics to: Shockwaves Compo, Invisible Cities, Unit 16, Business & Innovation Centre, Riverside, Sunderland SR5 2TA.
Shockwaves Express: the prize... An Amiga 4000 80Mb HD with 2mb Chip RAM, 16Mb SIMM, a 40MHz Warp Engine plus a copy of Lightwave 30. (Sorry, but the Commodore monitor is ours!)
The Squirrel SCSI interface could change the way you use your Amiga. In our six-page special Jolyon Ralph SCSI, Nick Veitch reviews the and you win £800 of Although SC.SI has become synonymous with hard disk interfacing on the Amiga, there is a lot more to SCSI dial makes it far more flexible than alternative systems such as IDE.
SCSI stands for Small Computer Systems Interface, although it was developed at a time when a small computer was about the size of your fridge. SCSI isn’t a piece of hardware in its own right, but it's a standard for communication between different devices.
Your Amiga requires a SCSI interface card (also called a host adaptor or SCSI controller card) to enable it to talk lo SCSI devices (lucky A3000 owners have a SCSI host adaptor built-in) and allows for up to eight devices to be connected together.
Because the SCSI host adaptor itself counts as one this means that normally up to seven devices can be linked to one SCSI host adaptor. These devices include hard drives, CD-ROMs, lapestreamers, scanners and more. Each device has to have its own SCSI ID number between 0 and 7 (with the host adaptor usually set at 7).
SCSI devices are linked together in a chain. At each end of the chain a terminator (a park of resistors) must be fitted which, like buffets on the end of a model railway track, prevent nasty things happening to your data. Unlike model railways you aren’t allowed branches in your SCSI chain.
To add to the confusion there are in most c ases two ways to connect your SCSI devices - internally or externally. Internal devices are cheaper, use power Irom your Amiga and, because they fit inside your Amiga c ase- (if you have a big-box Amiga), lake up no extra desk space. External devices have their own cases with power supply and connect via I he SCSI port.
On most cards this is a 25-way female
I) connector, identical to the parallel |H»rt which can be
unfortunate - plugging in SCSI devices to your parallel port
or printers to your SCSI card can result in a quick electronic
death for the equipment involved. Some more expensive SCSI
controllers have miniature 50-way connectors, although cables
for these are often very expensive.
The internal anil external devices all live on the same rhain. So both ends of the chain need terminating. Because almost all SCSI devices have switchable or removable terminators this is very simple, just work out which devices are the last internal and external devices, make sure each has a unique SCSI II) number, and the end ones are terminated.
T his may all seem very complicated, anil because most people only have one hanl drive (if any) why bother? The reason is flexibility. You may have to pay more for a S iSI-based hard disk system but you then won’t have to waste money on a CD-ROM controller - SCSI handles CD-ROM fine.
SCSI is constantly evolving and there are newer variations on the standard that improve on the old format. The current SC ISI standards arc: M nrrrr A good example of a SCSI chain. The host adaptor card is terminated at one end, the end of the SCSI chain is also terminated.
SCSI-2: standard S LSI-2 uses die same hardware as the original SCLSI but offers more efficient data transfer Itetwecn devices to give a faster performance, plus it has extended support for devices such as CD-ROMS. Most St LSI controllers on sale for tin- Amiga now are SCSI-2 and some older SCSI controllers (GVP ones, for example) can be upgraded with a simple Rt )M swap. SCSI-2 now offers speed advantages over older non-SCSI-2 drives.
Till- maximum data transfer speed for St LSI-2 is around 5Mb per second, although unless you have a very fast hard drive and a very fast Amiga you are unlikely to see this. It may also be limited by the speed of transfer from the St LSI controller to the host machine’s memory.
SCSI-2 Fast: is the next stage on from SCSI-2. I.ike SCSI and SCSI-2 it uses 8-1,ic parallel data transfer between devices but it does so at double the speed of St -SI-2, making the maximum possible transfer speeil around 10Mb per second. Hard drives labelled SCSI-2 Fast work quite happily on SCSI-2 or even SCSI-1 systems, but obviously not to their full potential.
SCSI-2 Fast controllers lend to be expensive and only available on Zorro III cards for the big-box Amigas.
SCSI-2 Wide Fast: unlike SCSI-2 Fast which does 8-bit transfer, St LSI-2 Wide Fast uses I fi-bit transfers to again double the speed of transfer which means even bigger, faster anil more expensive hard drives. There aren’t any SCSI-2 Wide Fast controllers available for the Amiga yet.
For most uses standard St LSI or SCSI-2 are perfectly acceptable. If you need to work with digital video, or you just can’t put up with anything other than the fastest possible hard drive then you need SCSI-2 Fast (but don’t even think about doing digital video without at least a 68040 processor and heaps of RAM).
A SCSI interface makes many add-ons accessible to your Amiga. The most useful of these include: TAPESTREAMERS Tapcslrcamcrs have tended to go out of fashion over the last couple of years with magneto optical drives and similar systems eating into the market. However, tapcslrcamcrs are still by far the cheapest way of backing up large volumes of data regularly (a 10 metre data cassette can hold up to 8Cb of compressed data). Old cartridge-based systems, such as DC600 or DC2000, have now been more or less completely replaced by DAT DDS and 8mm (Exabyte) systems.
Why buy a tapestrcaincr? If you have 500Mb of valuable data on hard drive it soon becomes obvious that it is impossible to back up on to (loppy disk. Modem hard drives are more reliable than before, but accidents do happen.
Two weeks ago my entire hard drive crashed, but I had a back-up and was up and running again within a few hours. But you may not lx- able to keep data on your hard drive - if you render long animations Continued overleaf v CD-ROMS many people are waiting for a read write system to become affordable.
Unfortunately affordable CD-ROM read write systems are not around the comer, you will still need to spend well over £2,000 on a system capable of both reading and writing to Cds (using the gold CD-recordable discs) and even then the discs are around £10 each and once they are full you can't erase old data and re-use them.
Recordable CD-ROM is just starting to make an impact in the back-up market - it is nearly as economical as DAT to run and it is far more flexible and useful. When you have your back-up on CD-ROM finding and accessing one file from it is simple, but the initial set-up costs are still extremely expensive.
CD-ftOM has been the computer success story of the 1990s. A single silver CD can contain up to 6S0Mb of data. At last huge graphical adventure games are possible, encyclopedias can be put on to computer (the world's biggest-selling encyclopedia of any kind is now the Microsoft Encarta CD-ROM available for PC and Mac) and 600Mb of Public Domain software can be yours for little more than the price of a music CD.
And now any SCSI CD-ROM drive can be used with the Amiga, which means you have the whole range of PC and Macintosh drives to choose from which is a particularly pleasing prospect because some can be picked up for as little as £100.
However, there are two problems with CD- ROM. Firstly it's slower than hard drive, although most modem drives are at least double-speed (spinning twice as fast as the original CD-ROM drives), and new quad-speed drives are now becoming affordable - and secondly you can only read from it. Although software publishers like this idea (you can't easily pirate a CD-ROM disc) to hard drive, dumping them to tapestreamer tape when finished is the cheapest way to store them and clear your hard drive for the next job.
DAT DDS systems are the most popular at the moment. They store up to 2Gb uncompressed on to a single-sided cassette, the same type of tape used in the DAT (Digital Audio Tape) systems that failed to take off in the hi-fi market but now live in every music studio in the country. More advanced models can store between 4Gb and 6Gb on the same tape using hardware compression and decompression techniques.
DAT and its big brother 8mm Exabyte (which is based on the 8mm video cassette format) both work in the same way, which is identical to the home VCR using a single-sided tape with a helical scanning head. Like a VCR a tapestreamer needs to be looked after with regular cleaning.
Although most of the time you use a DAT drive with back-up software such as (Quatinbark 6.0and .4miltark 2.0it is possible using the Tapeworm software from Moonlighter Software (call Ramiga 01690 770S04) to access a DAT tape like a large, slow, hard drive. Although for general use this is not ideal taking up to one or two minutes to find a file, for certain tasks (like storing rendered frames directly to backup tape) this combination can work well.
SYQUESTS The SyQuest drive is a very simple idea - take all the electronics from a hard drive and put it in a box. Now put the actual hard disks in a small plastic cartridge that can be removed. Then, once this cartridge is full you remove it, buy a new one and swap them round at will.
SyQuest drives used to have a bad reputation for reliability (it was very simple to destroy the cartridge by knocking it when in use), but these problems have long since been sorted and SyQuest is now a very reliable and well-trusted system.
Modem versions store up to 270Mb on a cartridge (the original only stored 44Mb), but it is still an expensive way to buy data (if you only buy a few cartridges a large hard drive may Ire better value).
MAGNETO OPTICAL DRIVES The magneto optical drive is a cartridge- based system somewhat like the SyQuest in operation, but unlike die SyQuest it uses a laser to read and write to the cartridge.
Unlike writc-once CD-ROM, magneto optical data can be erased and written over, just like a normal hard drive.
Available for several years the magneto optical drive has failed to come down to a sensible price, with the full-size 600Mb and 1Gb units still costing well over £1,(MM). It's smaller brother, the 128Mb (and now 256Mb) 3.5-inch cartridge has proved more popular and offers very good value for money. It’s slower than a hard drive (and SyQuest) but the data is kept more reliably (there arc no moving heads that could crash your disk).
HARD DRIVES You can't use an Amiga for anything serious without a hard disk, and if you're really serious about your Amiga you'll know about the first law of hard disk space.
Your programs and data always expand to fill the space available. That's why your drive is always 98% full. That’s why my 600Mb drive is always 98% full.
Try to work out how much space you need. Then double it. Double it again.
Take that number and if it's less than 200Mb then keep on doubling it until it isn't. Not that you’ll find many 200Mb drives available nowadays. As more anti more people buy 500Mb and larger drives to start with, it's becoming uneconomic for hard disk manufacturers to sell small capacity SCSI drives.
1-ast year 120Mb SCSI drives were becoming scarce forcing the minimum available size up to around 240MI . Now the entry level SCSI drives are around the 300Mb mark. You'll still find smaller drives available of course, but these tend to be end-of-line discontinued stock.
If you really don't need 300Mb of storage then low capacity (ie under 200Mb) IDE drives are still available and interfaces are available for most Amigas that don’t come with IDE as standard.
OTHER USES There are many other devices that can be connected by SCSI. Scanners often come with SCSI interfaces (the Epson GT-6500 has an optional SCSI interface), but so far no Amiga software supports scanners via SCSI. Some printers used to be available with SCSI interfaces, but this seems to have gone out of fashion. There are plenty of bizarre scientific and medical devices that communicate over SCSI. When it comes to flexibility SCSI is hard to beat.
The Squirrel SCSI unit is a unique way of adding a whole host of SCSI devices to your A1200 or A600. Instead of using the more conventional expansion route- the trapdoor slot - this interface uses the all-but-redundant PCMCIA slot.
The advantages of this method are immediately apparent. The Squirrel does not occupy die valuable trapdoor slot, so you can still add RAM expansions, Software for mounting CD devices is included with the Squirrel unit as well as some useful Aminet utilities.
Accelerators or combo cards to your Amiga at a later dale.
The interface itself is pretty small, being a mere 10cm long and about two high. A standard 50-way SCSI cable is attached to the rear to enable you to connect any SCSI device you fancy, from a CD-ROM drive to a tapestreamer.
As you may have gleaned over the preceding three pages, SCSI mechanisms are far more diverse and give better performance than their IDE counterparts.
Because they are a standard, and because the Squirrel conforms completely to that standard, it opens up a whole new realm of data storage and retrieval possibilities for your Amiga.
You will be able to interface to every SCSI mechanism, presided you have the necessary driver software. In many cases this is already supported by the Amiga, so Continued overleaf O TRAPDOOR PROBLEMS One potential problem that we should bring to your attention if you're thinking of getting the Squirrel is that the PCMCIA interface does interfere with some memory expansions in the trapdoor slot.
This is not the fault of the Squirrel, or of any other PCMCIA device. The Amiga hardware allocates a particular address range to the PCMCIA slot which cannot be changed. Standard autoconfig memory cards used in the trapdoor slot also try to access this memory if they exceed 4Mb in size.
There are some newer memory expansions and accelerators for the A1200 which do not use the autoconfig system, but allocate their own memory addresses. In these cases they can contain more than 4Mb of RAM.
«“ if you add a SCSI hard drive, or a SyQuest mechanism, you can just plug in and go. This means you can take advantage of a whole host of external SCSI mechanisms, the ones normally sold for use with Pcs or Macs.
The SCSI mounter utility automatically mounts any SCSI devices you have attached. A customised copy of HDToolbox is also included with the Squirrel, for setting up and preparing devices for use.
The Squirrel comes with CD driver software, so you can use any SCSI CD mechanism, not just those sold through HiSoft. The software also includes the now obligatory CD32 emulation system, so you will be able to run the majority of CD32 titles - both games and serious discs. The SCSI interface even supports the extended protocol for insert and eject requests - so you can even open and close the CD mechanism door through software. Magic.
SQUIRREL SCSI Now we get down to the business of transfer rales. Well, obviously because the PCMCIA slot is a slow interface, you aren't going to get lightning fast speeds on most of the hard drive mechanisms. If the OTHER SQUIRREL SCSI DEVICES Double-speed CD-ROM £179 (external) £119 (internal) SyQuest 88 44Mb £349 (external) £289 (internal) SyQuest 270Mb £499 (external) £439 (internal) 270Mb hard drive £229 (external) £179 (internal) 540Mb hard drive £319 (external) £259 (internal) Amiga you are using has to use Chip memory for data caches (if you have no RAM expansion at all) and has a
medium RAM buffer, the maximum transfer rate you are likely to achieve with a hard disk is around 1 Mb second.
Speed isn’t a problem with CD-ROMs though, because even the best don't manage a transfer rate breaking into 1 Mb second. Thus, you should be safe for all current Cds, and plenty of those planned for future release which may demand quad-speed drives. The CD already has a double-speed drive which is required for a few of it's titles.
The Squirrel it fully SCSI-2 compliant, which means that you can connect any nice new SCSI-2 drive with it. There probably won't be any noticeable speed increase, because although SCSI-2 mechanisms can achieve transfer rates of over 5Mb second, the PCMCIA interface is a bottleneck. However, the interface does support the protocol standard, and DISTRIBUTOR HiSoft 01525 718181 PRICE £69.95 SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS A1200 or A600 SPEED •••• The speed limitations are caused by the Amiga hardware, not the Squirrel.
MANUAL • • • • • An extensive tome which gives useful information about SCSI systems.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • • • Installation is very straightforward, and using it couldn't be easier.
All the advanced features of SCSI-2. It also has a full implementation of original SCSI which supports media eject calls.
The construction of the unit is sound, and it even comes with those little rubber stick-on feet to stop it from sliding around.
The trailing cable from the back of the unit is not overly long which is a good thing because there's nothing I hate more than a long and unwieldy cable. If you desperately need a longer cable, you can always gel an extender.
Perhaps the most amazing thing about the Squirrel is its price - £70 for an interface which makes every single SCSI device available for your A1200 or A600.
The implementation is superb, though you may like to ponder on the concept that the speed of transfer is only limited by the very nature of the Amiga PCMCIA port. But then, consider what else you would use the PCMCIA slot for (virtually nothing), and SCSI through the trapdoor is limited and available on only a very small number of expensive cards.

“The sensible SCSI solution for the A1200 A600 at a great price.” 93% The Squirrel CD-ROM drive is the first of a range of great-value SCSI devices being released for the Squirrel. Although the drive we tested was a triple-speed type (the SuperTriple), they are also available in the more standard double-speed. You don't really want a cingle-speed one - although they are cheap (regularly advertised in Mac mags at about f 100), they are not really fast enough for any animation viewing from disk, and they aren't suitable for CD32 emulation either. This unit is fast, with transfer speeds up to
450K second - enough to play MPEG files, and also good enough for transferring to hard disk or loading in data for raytracing.
The bundled software is reasonably easy to set up. There are a few files that have to go in different places, but isn't that always the way? For CD12 compatibility, the software attempts to find a boot sequence on the CD, and use it if there is one. This is much simpler than all that Zappo shenanigans, and surprisingly effective too because the Squirrel seems to handle as many, if not more games.
It is a full SCSI mechanism, so if you already have a SCSI interface, it is possible to use the Squirrel CD- ROM range and because it is a SCSI drive, you can use it on any other SCSI-compatible computer.
At this price, these and the other mechanisms in the Squirrel line, bring the price of Amiga SCSI devices down to Mac and PC levels.

¦ rjryn rnr, rrr riiiLZjJM II i 1MB RAM UPGRADES KCS 3.5 LEVEL II Datastore When we reviewed this incredible music package (AF29) we awarded it the coveted Gold rating (a whacking 92%) and that was with a retail price of £279.
We said: "Contains all the elements you could possibly need to use your Amiga in a serious environment". KCS
3. 5 is much more than just a sequencer, it also contains a whole
host of functions, in a multi-program environment (MPE), to
allow you a great deal of flexibility in creating music:
record notes in KCS. Edit them in Tiger and print out your
score using Quickscore.
• KCS 3.5 requires 1Mb RAM, although 2Mb, a hard drive and a MIDI
interface is recommended.
TV*TEXT PROFESSIONAL V2 FULL PACKAGE Our TV Text Coverdisk was ideal for those exploring the joys of video titling for the first time, but this new version will give your titling a whole new dimension.
This brand-new-direct- from-the-USA version includes AGA support, which allows up to 256 colours on-screen, it permits text to be typed directly on-screen, provides full outline font support
- so you can squash, stretch and scale your fonts without any
loss of quality.
It also includes a Player program, allowing images to be scripted and sequenced, and contains wipes, fades and other effects. In addition to the original 220-page TV Text manual (also available separately) v2 contains an AGA manual and five extra disks packed with 50 outline fonts for use with TV'Text and other packages that support outline fonts. AF Gold-rated.
TV*TEXT PROFESSIONAL V2 UPGRADE With the exception of the original 220-page TV'Text Professional manual and the five disks of outline fonts, this TV'Text V2 upgrade contains everything that is in the full v2 package.
If you have previously purchased the manual or already have access to a wide range of fonts, this option is definitely the right one for you.
See your titles come to life with the extra enhancements of this AGA version.

The AF office has been reverberating to the vOlt sound of
machine gun fire this month. Death Mask, in two-player, F Urn
head-to-head mode is the reason. It isn't the best game ever,
nor is g» it Doom or Wolfenstein for the Amiga, but
importantly, it points I J the way forward. It shows the Amiga
is perfectly capable of handling pacey, JD graphics and with a
bit more imagination and care in the level design department,
Death Mask could spawn a corking sequel. Get to it, Apache
programmers, for we want more.
We were both surprised and delighted a few months ago when Guardian CD52 dropped on the mat. And we're even more pleased that the A1200 version has arrived, because it gives more folk the opportunity to find out for themselves what a corking shoot-em-up it is.
Pleasingly, the games section of the magazine is bulging and the only problem with the amount of games hitting the shelves at the moment is that it limits our space for previews, though you can rest assured - every forthcoming Amiga release for the next few months will be listed in our April issue. Also, next month, Steve McGill picks the best of your MKII moves, of which there have been a superfluity.
AMIGA FORMAT AMIGA FORMAT'S REVIEW POLICY Every month we scour the worid's software houses for the latest and greatest Amiga games. We try to ensure we keep you as up-to-date as possible, and we'll stop at nothing to bring you the best, definitive, no-nonsense reviews of the games that matter.
WHAT OUR REVIEW SCORES MEAN 90*% The creme de la creme of games. Only the very best, most playable and original games are awarded an AF Gold - the most highly-prized rating there is.
80-89% These games are very good, but due to minor flaws are not the finest examples of their genre.
70-79% Good games which are worth buying, especially if you have a special interest in a certain game type.
60-69% Average releases with limited gameplay and appeal.
Games in this category tend to have significant flaws.
50-59% Below average games like this are unlikely to impress your mates or your wallet. Try to avoid if you can.
40-49% Overwhelmingly poor quality games with major flaws and appalling gameplay. They're an embarrassment.
Less than 40% The absolute pits, the lowest of the low. Don't even consider borrowing 'em.

while the other has the might of a force field to take on
board.
In this time of indecision, this period of inactivity in the house of Commodore, let us be positive.
We have Amigas. We like our Amigas, and we want to use our Amigas. And in the context of games, it's vitally important that software support is forthcoming.
Recent reports indicate that the Amiga's share of the computer games market over the Christmas period was an impressive 56 per cent. Yes, 56 per cent, leaving the PC and Mac trailing.
People are still buying Amiga games in droves. Predictably, many have suggested that last Christmas was indeed the last Christmas for the Amiga, but if programmers can write some decent, original games (and Commodore can get some boxes on shelves) then there is no reason why next Christmas should not be white.
Desperation. Our friend, the player on the left has used up all his ammo and has but a knife which he wiggles, somewhat pathetically up and down while his foe blasts him with a shotgun.
Doom-laden Look, this game is Death Mask, and it really is a step in the right direction. It's available on CD32; there's also a 1 Mb version (fewer levels and slightly inferior control when using CD32 pad) and not, as you might expect, an AGA-only version. Goodo.
A first-person perspective shoot- em-up, you wander along corridors, search rooms, collect power-ups, annihilate the baddies, destroy the nuclear reactors and head for the exit to the next level. And by God, it's fun.
Bloody good fun.
Yet mongers of doom abound.
"This isn't Doom," they cry. "Nor is it Wolfenstein," others quip with glee. And they're right. It isn't. Graphically, it falls short of the mark, though it doesn't look bad - sacrificing looks for speed is often, and in this case, a worthy move.
The enemy move in blocks rather than gradually advancing, which reminded one commentator of Terry Gillian's Monty Python animations. And whenever you're involved in bloody combat, it's always at 180 degrees, so you can't conceal yourself and get in sneaky shots, and if you haven't picked up some decent weapons you can get shot to pieces early doors.
More gripes. In two-player games, both protagonists are identical - both wear red tops and both look like they're sporting brown paper bags over their heads as if preparing for a Post Office raid. And some have found it far too easy to complete. Make no mistake, this game could be better, but at least programmers Apache have shown a way forward. Team 17 have Alien Breed 3D on board, Grandslam a Wolfenstein clone in the pipeline and there are others ready to hop on a similar bus.
To Death Mask. There are three ways to play: one-player against the fiends, two-player against the fiends (that's friendly toward each other, although you can shoot each other by ¦ Once you've got the big gun, your aim is to hunt down your opponent like a small animal.
Every time you access the map, they can spot where both of you are and react accordingly All part of the fun.
Rattle and hum But what you really need to play Death Mask is VOLUME The sound is amazing, from the clunking footsteps, to the rattle of gunfire, to the atmospheric background hum broken by the occasional drum thump Linked to speakers or a decent TV. Lights dimmed, it's compulsive fare s SB A z 77% o « Ul 'mistake') and a magnificent, two-player head-to-head where you aim to do it to them before they... you get the idea.
The head-to-head option has 10 different maps of varying complexity and it’s in this mode that Death Mask excels. These battles can turn into a race to collect power-ups around a maze of corridors before inevitable carnage; or a one-on-one, out-and-out blast to the death and in some circumstances, a pedestrian game of cat and mouse - the most tremendously tense of affairs.
A map facility kindly offers advice as to your position (though you can't look at the map and move simultaneously), which is much needed when you have considerably superior firepower to your opponent, your sole aim, to hunt him down like a small animal. Trouble is.
Not, admittedly, a pretty sight but one which confronts every person who dares to wear the Daath Maak. Rather dramatic, eh? Good.
Death Mask Publisher Alternative Software 01977 797777 Price: £29.99 (CD32), £25.99 others Versions: Cdm A500 A600 A1200 System r Release ( date CD32, 1Mb, Works on Zappo CD drive Out now Death Mask is somewhat linear when battling the computer baddies.
Wander and fire is the order, which doesn't afford the game a deal of longevity - often you have the choice to whack the fire button, blasting one after another repeatedly, or retreat to a quiet comer. And in the two-player game, one can open the map and do nowt, while the other can shoot around, using the map and do the job, preparing a safe route to the exit.
Alternative are the first commercial softie to release this type of game (Psygnosis' Hired Guns took a slightly different form) and no doubt many more will follow suit over the coming months.
Death Mask, despite its various shortcomings is enormous fun, head-to- head mode in particular. Despite reservations, a hit. ® VERDICT: Head-to-head, this is the best two- player game to date in '95.

Guardian A1200 3750 • :s A few months ago we got very excited about a CD32 game, something which, admittedly, doesn't happen often, mainly because most CD games are ported from their floppy counterparts, thus ensuring we’re already well versed in their gameplay. Not so Guardian. Kiwi programmers, Acid Software, responsible for the quirky racing game Skidmarks, took us somewhat by surprise when this plopped on the mat.
If Super Stardust is posh Asteroids then Guardian is deluxe Defender, only with more frills than the Queen Mother's curtains. The action is in 3D, first-person perspective and the idea is simple. You shoot things. Everything. Clear away the alien craft and move on to the next level
- not quite as easy as it sounds.
Through a 3D landscape, swerving to avoid the buildings, picking off the enemy, the scanner tells you that someone is right behind you. Palms moistening at pace, you deftly tap the pad to flip the ship 180 degrees and suddenly you're face to face with foe Blow him out of the skies, alien ship in smithereens and off you go.
Mastering control of the ship is by no means easy, which only adds to the problems of collecting the (essential) power-ups as they appear all too briefly, before shattering on the ground.
Dead as a dodo There are two arguments concerning Guardian. Some players think it a classic, a throwback to the days of 'real' arcade games where you plough through the levels again and again, while others reckon the structure suffers badly because Guardian contains no password facility - yes friends, when you is dead, you is DEAD.
Fortunately, each game differs - you never play the same level in the same way and because there is no time limit, it's a case of destroying the enemy before they smash your installations.
Although best played with a joypad, this version has an option to use the mouse in conjunction with the keyboard, which, as you can imagine, takes some getting used to. Advice desk: use a joypad.
But whatever your weapon.
Guardian is a thrilling game. Shooting Guardian A1200 Publisher: Guildhall Leisure Services 01302 890000 Price: £29.99 Versions: A1200 A4000 System requirements: AGA machines Release date: Out now Guardian is as tough a shoot-em-up as they come - even the early levels can be soul-destroying - enemy craft appear from all directions, but then, I guess, many of you could trash us lot on the high score table.
Despite the attractive graphics, objects don't slink into view as you glide along - they just appear and depart suddenly, which is disappointing. But Guardian shouts loudly on playability and the rest matters not a jot. Few shoot-em-ups will match it in '95. O VERDICT: One of the Amiga's finest shoot-em- ups, Guardian will keep you hooked.

Armed only with his trusty mouse and a keen sense of adventure, Steve McGill points and clicks his way through Core Design's latest role-playing escapade.
Dragonstone Core have an outstanding reputation for top-quality, lush, arcade-graphic RPGs - Heimdall, Heimdall 2 and Darkmere to name but a few.
But things seem to have gone horribly wrong with their gameplay strategy lately. Take Universe as a prime example. It looked absolutely fantastic, the plot was engaging, but the game mechanics were horrible and unnecessarily awkward Even the Core rep who brought it in to show us took several attempts at picking up objects and various other things Dragonstone Publisher: Core Design 01322 297797 Price; £29.99 Versions: A500 A600 A1200 System requirements: 1Mb Release date: Out now And this pedantic tediousness has been carried on, although in a different form, with Dragonstone. This time round
though, there were no reps to give us a demo or suggest the best tactics and strategies. This time, we were left to our own devices.
Stone me In fact, it’s just as if we'd gone to the shop, bought ourselves a copy, rushed home, read the minimal instructions, thrown the disks into the drive and...and...and...and. And we felt totally ripped off.
Dragonstone looks great. Dust what you'd expect from Core. But it feels and plays a bit like Sabre Wulf on the ZX Spectrum. Now, in our book that's a good thing Sabre Wulf was a landmark in the history of computer games. But, unlike Sabre Wulf, the game doesn't contain enough to keep you interested.
In a vain attempt at injecting some interest, the crude mechanism of having irritating creatures such as hobgoblins and ores chase you all over the place has been implemented.
Sure, the monsters are easy enough to kill, but it's inevitable that they'll hit you at some point and eventually drain you of enough energy to kill you. This quickly tests your patience and leaves you ruefully staring at the box wondering: 'Why the hell did I buy this?'
Or not, in our case.
That's right, if you haven't paid attention to us and have gone out and bought the game, you're going to feel mighty ripped off Because unless you're a perverse stoic this game is quickly going to bore you to tears.
Dragonstone rapidly becomes an exercise in robotic joystick mechanics.
The only reason we stuck at it for as long as we did was to make sure that it didn't suddenly hot up and become a lot more interesting. Alack and alas, it didn't. What a dreadful, dreadful waste of disk space. . O Flight of fantasy?
No... with a Blizzard or Cvberstorm Accelerator, your Amiga will fly!
If you've ever sat and waited for your Amiga to catch up, you'll know that an extra boost of power would be just the ticket.
But. The only problem is the cost... isn't it?
Well not any more. When you compare our cost per MIP with other hoards you'll be surprised at just how little you'll have to pay to enhance the performance of your Amiga computer.
Then, the sky’s the limit!

8.3,CXI Facsimile: 01 “3 83KMO MARCH 199S GAME REVIEW £J There
is one major problem with Base Jumpers and it is this.
When you are playing in two, three, or four (human) player mode, and one (or two, or three) perishes, they are forever out of the game. Until you start again. This considerably decreases the fun (and there is a great deal on offer) because, of course, you want to tackle your friends for a length of time.
Much of the joy disappears when your mates die and you have to continue on your lonesome, for then you can't leave them flailing as you mount ladders at pace, collecting letters and jumping on the heads of roaming security guards, vampires and their ilk.
Oh, and the other problem is the price of the game.
Let me explain Base Jumpers is a game where you climb to the peak of a level on ladders - occasionally utilising the extra bounce of a spring. Upon reaching the summit, the screen switches to a fiendishly daring parachute mode where, after hurtling off of a roof, you attempt to impale your opponents on pipes and the odd protruding flagpole before opening your shute as late as you dare. That's it. It's completely fab, in a rather limited and unsophisticated way.
En route, there are letters to collect, arrows and explosives to avoid, magnets to shy from, chasms to traverse and spiky pits to hop over.
Argy bargy. But Base Jumpers shouldn't be a full-price game. Knock a tenner off and recommendation is forthcoming.
Too pricey for simple pleasures. O Base 3umpers Publisher.
Grandslam 0181-680 7044 Price £25.99 Versions A500 A600 A1200 1Mb Release date Out now Steve Bradley revels in the simplicity of a game featuring little folk and lots of ladders.
But, he asks, is Base Jumpers really a step in the right direction?
Simple fare, indeed. The combinations of letters can swoop you into one of 11 sub-games as well as reward you with a points bonus. Actually, the letter combinations can change the game in a pile of ways, most of which your correspondent has yet to discover.
Base Jumpers is somewhat tedious in one-player mode, lacking in depth and in variety of play, but when friends are involved it can be a gas, particularly when four are fighting it out on screen.
Players who scroll off the bottom of the screen shoot forward, losing points in the process and the subsequent parachute shoot-out is more involving because the computer's 'shutists avoid J U if] p VERDICT: Simple, yet quirky and enjoyable platform fare, if somewhat costly.

Product Code Description Price Name Address Phone No Post Code MARCH 1 995 GAME REVIEW Steve McGill explores the cyberspace world of a futuristic adventure game and discovers intrigue, vampires and a woman called Deirdre Tackett.
Cybernetic surgery, smart drugs, neural implants, hacking, phreaking, cyberspace net-surfing, vampiric bloodsucking, illicit street trading, schizophrenia, street-tech weaponry, designer violence, bioweapons, religious insanity, and more, more, more constitutes the newspeak plot of this surprisingly absorbing adventure from Gametek.
But first, the bad news. If you don’t have a hard drive, forget it. There are 12 disks in all and access times between locations and courses of action are debilitating, easily adding an hour or more on to a typical session's play.
Hard drive owners, however, are in for a treat, albeit a mechanically flawed one. Bloodnet plays like the interactive William Gibson, Bruce Sterling, RU Sirius novel that you always intended writing but never quite got round to.
The plot is everything. New York City of 2094 is caught in the icy harsh grip of bloodsucking vampires and tyrannical mega-corporations. You play the role of Ransom Stark, an ex-Trans Technicals employee who spent too much time in cyberspace and eventually lost his grip on reality.
Luckily he was saved by a woman called Deirdre Tackett. She surgically inserted a neural implant into Stark's skull which, as you find out in the intro to the adventure, saves his life more than once.
Coffin fit Van Helsing is searching for Tackett. He needs to acquire a program designed by her. He dupes Stark with a bogus job and eventually manages to turn him into a vampire. Only the neural implant saves Stark from the horror of becoming a fully-fledged vampire under the will of Van Helsing. And that's when the adventure starts for real.
It plays and feels like the sort of RPG you would play round the table with friends. At the beginning you can generate the statistics for Stark by answering a series of 12 questions, the answers to which affect the final scoring. Fine tuning is allowed on five separate categories.
IT'S GOOD TO TALK Ransom Stark has a neural implant that gives him instant recall and photographic memory of conversations.
GAME REVIEW MARCH 1995 y Much like Beneath A Steel Sky, this is a conceptual view of cyberspace. Blimey!
Cyberspace travel is fraught with danger, so several safe locations have to be found.
Once done, the serious business of recruiting fellow mercenaries, exploring futuristic New York and jacking into cyberspace can be investigated. And this is where the game really bites.
Information Superhighway.
Nevertheless, this activity has to be delved into if vital information is to be acquired. And gaining certain types of info requires certain types of gear and equipment, all of which have to be searched out in the real world.
So, despite some tedious game mechanics, such as the inventories of the characters and the combat system, this adventure is powerfully overwhelming in its narrative and pace.
It feels as if you're taking part in a book.
Adventure fans, Internet fans, hackers, crackers and phreakers are all going to love it. It bites.
Exploring New York is easy. It's just a matter of clicking on the little red triangles on the map. This lets you get on with the serious business of finding out more about what's happening in the underground and in cyberspace.
Cyberspace travel is fraught with danger. A deck and an interface is required and safe locations have to be sussed out or Stark could find himself assassinated while still surfing the Bloodnet Publisher: Gametek 01753 553445 Price: £34.99 Versions: A1200 only System requirements: AGA machine Release date: Out now VERDICT: A compulsive and compelling journey to the outer reaches of cyberspace.

Skeleton Krew 1 hi a HI 2 0 Believe il or not, this takes place in a lift. You just keep shooting the creatures until they're all dead. Then you get the chance to do it all again with the next set of creatures.
Skeleton Krew Publisher: Core Design 01332 297797 Price: £34.99 Versions: A1200 A4000 System requirements: AGA chip set Release date: Out now If) ft ft X u ft 2 Tedious: annoying, banal, boring, drab, dreary, dull, humdrum, irksome, laborious, lifeless, monotonous, prosaic, prosy, soporific, tiring, uninteresting, vapid, wearisome.
Guess what? All of the above definitions of tedious apply to Skeleton Krew. Apart from the graphics and the choice of control systems, this game's got nothing going for it whatsoever.
It's almost as if Core had spent all their time designing the graphics and the monstrous adversaries and forgot about inserting any gameplay into the thing. And, in retrospect, to cover up for this inadequacy it appears that they've opted to disguise the omission by making the game so difficult to play that they hope nobody'll notice the oversight.
Firstly though, you have to take a look at why the game's so bad. The plot's an arbitrary bolt-on which adds nothing to the non-existent atmosphere.
It plays like an isometric Gauntlet with none of the good bits. There's no incentive to make progress, no sub tasks to be engaged in and, apart from spare lives, nothing worth collecting.
All the action centres around shooting things and finding the exit to the next level. There are even sections where you're trapped until you kill everything in your way. So basically, all there is to do is, move, dodge, shoot, move, dodge, shoot, ad infinitum.
In fact, the glaring questions that remain to be answered with Skeleton Krew are, why did Core release it in this state? Why couldn't they have held on a bit longer and worked on some game mechanics, such as those used in the Alien Breed series, to make the game interesting and inject a bit of lastability into it. As it stands it’s worrying that such a shoddy product has been put on general release by a developer with Core's pedigree.
Or put it another way. Avoid Skeleton Krew at all costs. The asking price is £34.99. Not only is that an insult to the Amiga market it’s aimed at, it's also an overpriced rip-off.

CLOANTO Steve McGill takes to the skies with Empire's latest to discover whether it soars into the realms of stardom or crashes into oblivion.
Dawn Patrol THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE EHSITIUXTY 2 Let's take a quick look at what made and still makes Knights Of The Sky the best flight sim ever on the Amiga.
• - A permeating sense of atmosphere was deliberately developed
and consciously exploited by Microprose. The flight envelopes
of the planes were spot on. You could shoot moving ground
vehicles and bomb churches. You can't do that with Dawn Patrol.
But the biggest clincher was the serial link option. You could choose any World War One aeroplane to fly in the head-to-head dogfights. Tremendous.
Dawn Patrol Publisher: Empire 0181 343 9143 Price: £34.99 Versions: A500 A600 A1200 System requirements: 1Mb, hard drive installable Release date: Out now There's something fundamentally wrong with the structure, design, execution, feel, playability, lastability and marketing of Dawn Patrol from Empire To coin a sadly unavoidable cliche.
Empire have tried to squeeze a quart into a pint pot. And oh my golly gosh!
(and other euphemisms of outraged incredulity) they've made one hell of a sticky mess So don't tell their mum.
She'll be mad.
But not half as mad as me. I was really looking forward to this release. I thought it was going to be the one that would finally wrest the crown of best biplane simulation away from the firm grasp of Microprose's 1991 release, Knights Of The Sky (AF29; 88%).
Unfortunately, Dawn Patrol seems to be vying with Red Baron (AF3239%) for best-looking but most unplayable air war romp. So, having said that, it's time to qualify some of those sweepingly damning statements.
The main fault is the poor frame update. The majority of the blame lies with some of the pointlessly frivolous cosmetics that have been bolted on - features such as unnecessarily complicated wing curves, wing struts and an accurately detailed undercarriage. These details slow everything down to a crawl that makes the plane feel as if it's fighting against the inertia of a struggling processor rather than cutting an elegant aerodynamic swathe through the air.
F I fill t,f It may look like an exercise in 3D object orientation. But this time it's the Red Baron who's in trouble.
It fatally detracts from the playability and furthermore it fails to help the game out during the complicated turning, climbing, and diving manoeuvres.
Empire have opted to have the display shrink in from the right and left edges of the screen, consequently, you never lose the sense that you're playing a computer game rather than flying over a virtual wartime France.
Mission impossible It's a shame really. A lot of time has obviously been spent on research and presentation. For example, information on lesser-known aces and their brave, gallant, foolhardy, inspirational missions is structured around an interactive book.
You find out about their exploits and philosophy on life and then get the chance to fly on some of their more famous outings. Not only that, but you can customise certain aspects of the missions such as increasing the number of opponents and their destinations. In all, a good idea, but not good enough to save Dawn Patrol from mediocrity.
As it stands, flight sim fans should only be looking in one direction and that's Knights Of The Sky at 12 O'clock on the Kixx label - £ 16.99. o i= I RST COMPUTER CENTRE HOW TO ORDER Order by telephone quoting your credit card number.

GENLOCKS Steve McGill paces anxiously along the touch line
while the lads give it 110 per cent on the day in what is most
certainly a game of two halves.
Fantasy Players win games and players lose games - it's all about players really." - Bobby Ferguson (commentator).
Not many Friday night television programmes have the power to make you leave what you were doing, go home, sit down in front of the telly for half an hour and indulge in a bit of jolly-japes uninhibited chuckling.
An auction system for the players and assemble a credible team that should make it through the upcoming season.
At least, that's what they do in the television version. Fantasy Manager caters for up to a maximum of 15 fantasy managers - six minimum - and they can opt to either bid against each other for players or take turns at buying players at their face value.
As soon as each manager is satisfied that they've assembled a team that will see them safely through the trials and tribulations of the season, the fantasy game for real begins.
Fantasy Football League hosted by mildly funny bourgeoisie, "did you spot the cultural references in that joke", David Baddiel and the sublimely hilarious, flat cap and tab, Frank Skinner, is one of the few that can.
The basic premise of Fantasy Football is sound. A host of minor celebrities are given a fixed amount of imaginary money and a list of players from the English Premiership. Each of the players has been assigned a value that roughly correlates with their worth in real life. Fantasy managers then bid in Fantasy Manager Publisher: Anco 01322 292518 Price: £19.99 Versions: A500 A500+ A600 A1200 System requirements: 1Mb Release date: Out now Considering the potential for laughs, visual jokes, puns and puerile humour, Anco's offering is decidedly lacklustre.
The front end makes no use of the mouse or anything convenient like that.
Selection of players, either from auction or placement into the team, beggars belief. There's no summary of selected players, and no undo function to compensate for mistakes.
It's more than slightly annoying and can lead to more wasted time than waiting in a bread queue in Russia. At the very least, it's frustrating. If it wasn't for the animated scoreboard during games, there’d be nothing to save the game from the ignominious title of Glorified PD Database.
The message is clear, if you want to play Fantasy Football, there are cheaper, more enjoyable ways to do so. Check your favourite paper. It's worth it.

Steve Bradley desperately wanted to bowl a maiden over, but we told him to review this new cricket game from Grandslam instead... It's International Test Seri es Crl sket Graham Gooch's Cricket has appeared in four guises, including data disks, and despite its handsome appearance, bugs still proliferate.
Fielders occasionally chuck the ball to the wrong end and certain types of bowling scupper the batsmen.
But it remains the benchmark for the cricket simulation. Some will prefer It's Cricket, undoubtedly (I do), but Gooch is fabulously playable. Cricket fans should get both, but don't expect perfection, just the best available for the Amiga.
Audiogenic's Graham Gooch's Cricket has monopolised the Amiga cricket scene with its chunky graphics and frantic, if flawed, gameplay.
Grandslam (or rather, Nightowl Software) have approached this (let's call it IIC) with slightly more religious fervour. The nine Test countries contain pictures of each player, but none of the Presumably timed to coincide with England's glorious attempt to wrestle the Ashes from the Australians, urn now safely in the Aussie's hands, the curiously-titled. It's International Test Series Cricket arrives when most of us can but dream of the sound of leather on willow.
It's International Test Series Cricket Publisher: Grandslam 0181-680 7044 Price: £26.99 Versions: A500 A600 System requirements: 1Mb Release date: Out now OVERALL SCORE VERDICT: An essentially fun and intelligent idea, but slightly flawed gameplay.
Player's names are on the picture. A real pain when you have to pick a Sri Lankan bowler to trot in from the pavilion end.
PLAY THE FIELD There are two types of bowler, spin and speedmeister. Spin offers four mouse-controlled options including the delightfully titled wrong 'un, yet when battling the computer teams it seems more a case of damage limitation, for no matter how short you pitch the ball, the batsmen simply step forward and nudge it or sweep it majestically across the turf. In two-player mode, it's all too easy to opt for seam straight at the stumps, limiting your opponent's choice of shots and dismissing a team for less than 30.
Batting is tough. After the ball has been delivered, you have a couple of seconds to select one of 12 strokes.
First you have to shuffle toward the ball then press the joystick button, one, two or three times followed by up, down, left or right. The timing must be split second to connect with a decent strike.
Fielding is equally fiddly. First you shift the mouse pointer over a player, click on him, shift over to the ball and click again to get the chap to hotfoot to its position. Ball collected, you position a wobbly arrow over the stumps and hope to run the batsmen out.
It's certainly more thoughtful than Gooch yet IIC is untidy. The graphics are sparse and the sound is awful. IIC is a step in the right direction but only the bowling stands the playability test.
Nightowl are planning add-on disks and if they tweak the gameplay, IIC could be a force in the future. Still, I would sooner play this than Gooch.
The Best Selling Word Processor and Database for the Amiga... Pen Pal Surely out-and-out puzzle games do not need to be weighed down by the burden of a plot. But seeing as X-IT has the best plot ever, read on. Bill is halting his fish and chip consumption for health reasons. Last time he ate them, aliens kidnapped and dumped him in a deep space junk yard Now, that's a quite tremendous yarn.
Before young William can order one of each three times and a bag of scrimps, there are blocks to be pushed, puddles to avoid, electrical fields to bypass, icy and exploding blocks to contend with and if all of this weren't distressing enough, a clock ticks merrily away while your fevered brow fevers some more. Oh, and you have an energy level to maintain. Tsk. Puzzle games, eh? Hard work.
X-IT Publisher: Psygnosis 0151 709 5755 Price: £19.99 Versions: A500 A600 A1200 System requirements: 1Mb Release date: Out now X-IT, like most good puzzle games, is both vexing and rewarding in roughly equal portions. Scream as you make a blindingly obvious error for the umpteenth time, sliding an icy block into an impossible corner Cheer as the solution becomes all too obvious after you've studied the screen, making fulsome use of the handy pause facility in the process.
Kindly, you aren't forced to plough through level after level - the options screen allows you to sweep to different areas of the game, a welcome feature, although undoubtedly, the codes will be landing on my desk shortly. X-IT is good fun, not groundbreaking or flashy, just solid on gameplay Sure, at 20 knicker, it’s a touch pricey but it comes recommended nonetheless.
Steve Bradley Or X-IT VERDICT: A simple and well-executed puzzle game. No more, no less.

and finds himself plagued with an unnerving desire to iron his underpants and fold his jimjams.
Valhalla, Before The War mighty rulers, having something to occupy their time and minds would make them happy, verging on grateful.
By now you might be wondering what all of this has got to do with Valhalla, Before The War? Not much, other than the pointlessness and never- ending tediousness of the gameplay.
There are four large levels - The Castle, The Dungeons, The Gallery and The King's Chamber. Within each, the player has to do the same thing - explore the bounds of the level, check out all the objects lying around, check out the pieces of furniture, and solve the logical puzzles to get to the next level.
Struck speechless The first Valhalla was hailed as the world’s only speech-based graphic adventure. The character you controlled spoke in a squeakily annoying voice that couldn't be turned off. And instant death awaited you every other footstep.
Thankfully, these problems have been addressed. You can limit the amount of speech and now death only lies in areas that are mostly obvious. But that leaves the basic problem exposed.
This is a fetch-and-carry game. It feels as if a best friend's invited you to their house and roped you into doing the cleaning or something. Now, some people might enjoy this time-consuming shuffling of goods and items all over the place. Good luck to them. They probably iron creases in their jeans too.
But anyone who's in the market for a real adventure are better catered for by Bloodnet. It has an involving plot, a believable background (Valhalla has a medieval setting despite the inclusion of lasers, grinding machines, electric lights and imaginable character interaction.
Sane people should give Valhalla, Before The War a miss. 'Zj In Thirties Italy, unemployment was dangerously high. Every politician knows that too many idle hands can lead to the overthrow of a ruling government. Therefore, in an attempt to stem the potential threat of insurrection, Mussolini drew up a brilliant plan - employ teams of men to build walls systematically throughout Italy. The specious logic being that, rather than feel resentful toward their The only downside, of course, was that the country would soon fill up with useless brick walls. But Mussolini's genius knew no bounds. To
prevent a veritable explosion in the pointless brick wall population, he employed other teams of men to pull down the newly built structures. Sheer excellence.

CD32 Games BUMP N' BURN Grandslam ¦ 0181 680 7044 ¦ £29.99 Bump W Bum tries hard to be the Amiga CDJ2 equivalent of Super Mario Kart on the SNES. But it fails, not miserably, but it fails nevertheless.
The driving perspective is the same as any of the Lotus games. Although it most closely resembles the first due to the race taking place over circuits rather than stages.
Unfortunately, Bump 'r' Bum's biggest fault lies with the size of the circuits compared to the number of competitors. Due to the small, tight dimensions of the circuits on Mario Kart, no matter where you are in the field, there's always someone either just ahead of you or in your slipstream.
Therefore, you're always in conflict, and by definition, doing something that's mildly exciting and entertaining.
Not so with Bump 'n' Bum. While it's nigh on impossible to take a commanding lead due to the way the competing cars have been programmed, it's all too easy to completely get out of touch with the rest of the field if you make fairly simple mistakes and drop behind.
Consequently, a lot of time is spent scenery watching while you pootle round trying to catch up.
Consider also that there are only seven tracks to race on. Compare that to the 32 of the original Lotus which had nice, well-designed circuits with 20 cars keeping a reasonable spread throughout the race and thus maintaining an even challenge.
The message is simple. If you own a CD 2 and are in the market for a top driving game, avoid Bump 'n' Burn and go for the Lotus Trilogy from Gremlin instead. It will last you longer and represents far better value for money.
FLINK Psygnosis ¦ 0151 709 5755 ¦ £20 This is an incredibly pretty platformer with lots of lovely parallax backgrounds and strange creatures inhabiting a surreal magical world Collect ingredients, build up magic energy by jumping on enemies' heads and cast spells. The spell-casting can aid in the fight against the nefarious denizens of the enchanted world, but more importantly it can help Flink gain access to the secret zones and metaphysical worlds.
In all, it's a nice attempt at injecting some interesting intriguing puzzley gameplay. Distractingly, some of the most annoying mechanics that can be put into a platformer are evident here - pixel-perfect jumps and instant death if said leaps aren't executed competently.
Considering that a lot of the charm of the game and the incentive to play it, lies in using the spells, instant death for a minor mechanical mishap isn't appreciated. It detracts from the appeal that Flink undoubtedly has and casts a dark shadow on its addiction factor.
If you can live with that, then you'll find that there's much of Flink that will appeal in a gentle, nothing-outstanding, kind of a way.

THE PATRICIAN COMBAT CLASSICS 3 Empire ¦ 0181-343 7337 ¦ £29.99 Campaign AF41 79% HistoryLine 1914-1918 AF43 94% Gunship 2000 AF4994% Fans of war and death applaud with an unnecessary amount of fervour as the third incarnation of the Combat Classics series arrives in a tank. And a big one at that. Campaign, HistoryLine 1914-1918 and Gunship 2000 line up for inspection Atteeeensheeeyon, as the military types say.
Daze 0171-372 7435 £16.99 ¦ AF51 89% Trading on the high seas hundreds of years ago remains a popular subject for computer games. The Patrician takes you back some six centuries to a time when people wore smocks, sailed the seas in dodgy wooden boats and computers were but a twinkle in Leonardo da Vinci's eye.
This is standard point 'n' click adventure fare, though well-executed. Hire and fire chaps, buy and sell goods and attempt to become a rather richer merchant than you were when you started. But do turn the music off.
Campaign is an extremely detailed, 3D strategy sim - the sort of war game which involves more mind blowing than mine blowing The battles are all set in the Second World War and these in turn are split into various campaigns.
Campaign is a hugely complex game, yet it's also surprisingly easy to settle into and find your way around, largely due to the decent control system and yes, a very helpful manual.
You can let your Amiga take over at various points to get on with the actual business of killing folk, but should you opt for manual control, then you can involve yourself in some solid 3D blasting. Much fun for the committed monger of wars.
On the line Stepping back a war is HistoryLine 1914-1918, Blue Byte's French-German encounter. You can choose to be either nationality and there's also a fulsome two-player head-to-head option.
HistoryLine is less text-heavy than Campaign and the action is turn based, so while one player fires, the other moves across an overhead-viewed scrolling landscape.
When the move is completed, the players swap and off you go again.
Control is via stick, mouse or keyboard and it comes on a stonking seven disks making you realise that hard drives truly are handy things.
There's a wealth of detail, it's all well researched and historically accurate and more accessible than most strategy fare for the casual gamer.
Most excellent, indeed.
On the fly Surely the finest Amiga helicopter simulation to date, Gunship 2000 affords you the opportunity to rise through the ranks of the American army, and the further you progress in your military career, the better the whirly bird you get to fly.
Thankfully, a generous offer of No Crashes enables you to develop the skills to fly the darned things - once mastered, the game becomes infinitely more satisfying. Weapons are plentiful and they include Cannons, Hellfires, Hydras and Sidearms - a gunner can also be used to help out when things get overly sticky.
The campaign areas are the Persian Gulf and Central Europe - where better to unload the odd Hellstreak. Oh yes, this is a fine flight simulator.
Combat Classics 3 is a decent compilation and although Campaign may be a tad ponderous for some it remains a worthy purchase. 5 REGULAR FREE GIVEAWAYS' WHEN YOU BUY FROM HREC "UNDER ' NEW MANAGEMENT" CREDIT CARDS NOT CHARGED UNTIL DAY, .OF DESPATCH, AMIGA TITLES Akira . .18-99 Flashback .... ..17-99 Aladdin (1200) .19-99 Football Glory ...... ,1699 Alien Breed Special Edition ...9-99 Football Glory (1200v| .

FOR THE HILLS 16 CINVMDMQEH: THE LONG WAY ROUND MAKING IT ALL
THEME SO EASY Theme Park remains one of the most popular
games around and Richard Marlin of Coalville imparts these
words of wisdom about the R and D screens for your
enlightenment.
1. Improving your rides If you put your ride-improvement vat up
to full (9999) for about two or three months and then put it
back to zero, you find that your rides keep on improving for
about six more months without you having to pay anything. The
cheat stops if you go to the Sandbox level, but when your
rides stop improving you can reactivate the cheat by doing the
same thing again.
2. Getting every ride FREE Step One: Make enough money for lots
of research.
Step Two: Go to the Sim or Full game option if you are on the Sandbox level Step Three: Put the Shop research up to full (9999).
Step Four: Wait. If you find yourself short of cash then put the Shop research down to nought. Always keep the research vat at 9999 or zero - never put it anywhere in-between.
Step Five: When you eventually get the arcades, don't turn off the Shop research. Wait for one more month.
.. ® .5 ° .S .« Ol c • S ] 6 3 £ c to c a a |11 if nil ?§ 2 = » s •= « “• * u S 2 1 “ Vi o § z 111 Step Six: After you have waited, go to the Rides screen and you should find that you have every ride.
3. Getting every single shop FREE Follow the instructions as for
the last cheat but instead of researching Rides, research
Improving Your Staff.
4. The Cheap Rubber Tubing Cheat.
If you want a Rubber Tubing ride but haven't got the cash for a big one, then simply open a small one and, while it is open, extend it to as large a size as you want
- you won't have to pay any extra.
A tip to make the people happy - at the park entrance, use one-way arrows to guide the people to a long Rubber Tubing ride. If you disconnect the ride just before the end, the people go backwards through the ride circuit, doubling the length of their experience.
Hey presto. Pleased folk.

ENEMY UNKNOWN COMMAND EARTH’S FORCES AGAINST THE ALIEN TERROR
mm fez ,r'§ yy&ai "This is the best game I’ve ever seen” 97%
COMPUTER GAME REVIEW
1999. You are in control of Xcom; charged by the world’s leaders
to strike at the alien menace that’s terrorising the Earth.
At first, you’ll scan, track and shoot down the slower UFOs, but that will just be the beginning. Whenever a UFO crashes, or lands, you must be there; leading a squad of armed soldiers from building to building, from street to street, using all your tactical skills to 0 capture or destroy the aliens.
V If you succeed in your first missions, your scientists and engineers will copy the alien technology to create more powerful weapons and craft for your forces to use. Gradually, you’ll build up a H terrifying picture of this Unknown Enemy, and their real aims and desires, then you’ll have to work out a strategy to stop them.
One thing is certain - it won’t be easy!

NEXUS 7 (Freestyle PD) There's loads of top techie trickery involved in this offering by Andromeda.
If you want exciting new effects presented in a slick, professional manner (admittedly more for the sake of impressiveness than entertainment) check out Nexus 7 now.
There are too many snazzy routines on show to list them all, but special mentions and accolades go to: Gouraud Pulse -a couple of irregular shapes, the first resembling a Mobius strip, animate and pulse with a particularly pleasing shading that resembles a hot coal changing heat from cherry red to furnace white hot.
Motion Blur-scaled, rotated, texture-mapped images are a bit of a cliche in demos these days. At first you think this routine is going to be more of the same, but the tortured face soon dispels that. It rotates and blurs and die horror of the image’s expression is amplified by the blurring. Digital high art indeed.
Texture-Mapped Bouncy Ball - apart from the fact that this ball looks good, special attention should be paid to the bitmapped transparency on show as the ball passes over the background. So much for the Sony PlayStation and its feature-laden hardware.
Plcuma Zoom- pay special attention to the message that crops up half-way through the demo: "Use your perception to penetrate the void of your mind". If you're one of those people who can see stereograms, put your eyes into the focussing mode you use and stare at the Plasma Zoom.
Freaky freaky.
Draw your own conclusions about the effects, but. For what it's worth. I think Nexus 7 is a stonker of a demo.
It's wordi more than a look, it's worth a purchase and a study.
NINJA (Network PD) Ninja is a short animation by the Melon coding team who bring strife where there is harmony, fear where there is security and stimulation where there is boredom. The anim doesn't last too long but hopefully it's the first of a series of Ninja adventures.
Firstly, you're introduced to the Ninja through various camera views and poses that convince you of his hardness.
One flyingjoumey later and the fruits of the Ninja's wakefulness are realised - some poor demented cross-eyed bloke gets his head sliced oil.
It's not too gory, as animations go, due to the restricted palette and a smirk may just roll off the corner of your twisted little mouth.
ROOTS (Freestyle PD) Apparently Pools should have been more comprehensive, featured better routines and have included several morphing images of the Sanity coders and designers.
Unfortunately, various mishaps beset the poor chaps and they had to churn out a demo that falls short of Continued overleaf 4 AJVUGs1 CD ZOM TITLES 17 BIT PHASE 4 fOOO GAMES ?

The music is reasonable and the quality of the original artwork is outstanding, resembling the style of painting used in the original Book Of Thoth, which Aleister Crowley used as a basis for his tarot deck paintings.
CYBERDROID (Saddle Tramps PD) Aside from that, the favourite routine on this side of the office is the rotating, texture-mapped pattern. At first you think that it’s nothing new, but within the rectangular action area strange shapes form until the whole swirl and whirl of colour forms on a humanoid head.
All round, there isn't a great deal of wow factor involved in Roots, but it's still worth checking out for the quality of the artwork.
CD WORLD (17 Bit, Cynostic) Last month AF reviewed a couple of disk magazines, Deadlock and Grapevine, both of which left us more than impressed. So we had high hopes for CD World bv Infinite Frontiers.
Unfortunately, it doesn't really contain anything in the way of invigorating editorial, content, or excitement to make it worth purchasing.
The sincerity of the reviewers is beyond question, but the basic grasp of what constitutes fluent, readable, attention-holding English isn't there and this is all compounded and compromised by the lack of screenshots
- a necessity for helping a potential purchaser of a recommended
game understand some of the trickier elements and quirks.
So, considering that this mag comes on two disks, costs three quid, boasts an average word count of 300 words per review - a tight squeeze in any reviewer’s book - with no pictures or playable demos anywhere to be seen, the price seems excessive.
The information can be found in a more digestible, attractive, understandable form elsewhere and that's basically it. Nice idea, shame about the implementation.
When the computers of the 250th century start getting too big for their boots, their human masters call in the Cyberdroid, an awesome wardroid designed specifically to kick silicon butt. Even harder than ED-209 and with more attitude than Robocop, Cyberdroid is one mean gauss gun wielding mulhal Tile basic idea of the game is to save mankind from legions of marauding robotic mcanics using a Continued overleaf e UTILITY COLLECTION 46 (Cynostic) The Amiga's Workbench may run rings around anything the competition can come up with in terms of flexibility and ease of use. But there's still room for
improvement. And it needn't cost you more than the price of a disk - the Amiga has a highly prolific Public Domain scene, and what better way of enhancing your machine than with a selection of fine Public Domain system utilities.
Cynostic PD collect and distill the best of these programs and release a regular collection, so let's take a look at what's new in Cynostic's latest Utility Collection: Aguide - This is a replacement for Commodore's own AmigaGuide, the hypertext utility for the Amiga. Programmed by Amo Eigenwillig of AESoftware, Aguide is a tool which provides a number of advantages over the AmigaGuide utility including custom screen and file requester support which makes the whole system a lot more versatile, not to mention a dam sight easier to use. Excellent.

_J§ Tired of Commodore’s AmigaGuide utility? Arno Eigenwillig's Aguide provides a direct replacement with a number of enhancements.
AddressBook - Address books are remarkably useful, and this one is a fairly simple little utility that can be run in the background and brought into view only when you need to check a number, much like a standard Amiga commodity. The software provides full search and editing facilities, so you need never lose that important address again.
CatchDisk - Patches into the OS so that whenever an unformatted disk is placed into your Amiga's drive, the Workbench disk formatting utility is automatically loaded. Use carefully if you often use custom or foreign file formats!
FileShow - A small module which works in conjunction with Directory Opus. FileShow analyses a file so that you can see its type without having to analyse it with a binary file editor. Compact and bijou.
FloppyBase - A simple database which can be used to hold information on the contents of your floppy disks - a disk cataloguer in fact. It automatically reads the directory of each disk and stores it as a database record. You can then search the database to find out which disk any particular file might be on.
S * A X •0 0 Ul SpiroDraw - An easy-to-use drawing program which simulates the child's Spirograph toy. Fun for hi-tech kids, or technical writers too lazy to get on with their work!

The gameplay is pretty standard - move your Cyberdroid through level upon level of left-right scrolling platforms blasting waves of robotic
nasties foolhardy enough to take you on. Every now and then, the scrolling stops as you're confronted by a that-bit-harder-ihan-the-rest baddie who must be despatched to silicon hell (where all the dead calculators go) before you can proceed.
Which let you perform all those common AmigaDO.S-like housekeeping operations that are both necessary and tedious such as copying, renaming reorganising and deleting files, creating directories, formatting disks and so on.
Thanks to Filer's well-conceived mouse-driven front end, moving back and forth through the directory structure of even the most crowded hard or floppy disk is child's play.
Running on any Amiga equipped with at least Workbench 2.04, Filer can transform your Workbench in an instant. Operations which were previously only possible with complex and time-consuming AmigaDOS commands can be performed with little more than a couple of mouse clicks.
FORTRESS (FI Licenceware) If there's one game that did more to bring the original Amiga A1000 to the attention of the world's gamers way back in 1987 or thereabouts, it must surely have been Cinemaware's Defender Of The Croum. The strategy game set in feudal England was arguably the inspiration for such huge hits as One of the best aspects of Cyberdroid is its excellent rendered graphics that arc used both for the Cyberdroid character itself and the various baddies.
Although they're mono only, the effect is impressive.
FILER 3.15 (Cynostic PD) Possibly the most useful utility you could ever buy for your Amiga is a directory utility. If you can't quite stretch to the likes of Directory Opus or Info Nexus, the PD libraries have something to offer in the shape of Filer
3. 15, a fine Opus clone that has been specifically written to
take advantage of
3. 0-based Amigas.
Like Opus. Filer uses the now familiar split-screen interface with the source and destination directories displayed in two vertical columns.
Running along the bottom of the screen are a large number of buttons WITNESS (Saddle Tramps PD) If you're looking for a damned good PD Defender derivative then look no further than Saddle Tramps' new Witness. Released through the Central Licenceware Register (so it can be bought from any PD library that is an official CLR supplier). Witness is a classy shoot-em-up that borrows more than a few tricks not only from Defender, but also from Team 17's polished Pro 'ect-X.
Witness is set in and around our own solar system which is under attack from hordes of marauding aliens who have decided to seize control of all the major planets. Your job is to fly to each planet in turn to stop the aliens from gaining control. In true Defender fashion, the action takes place on a left-right scrolling moon scattered with settlements which you must defend from alien attack ships that attempt to abduct the planetary colonists. You certainly don't have everything your own way, though - these aliens shoot back! Witness is one of the few PD games that has the necessary polish to
make it a true classic.
Megalomania and Populous, and also spawned a large number of Public Domain games including this one from FI Licenceware.
Fortress seems a simple enough game - you control one of three warlords and, using a combination of strategy and brute force, you have to capture your opponent's lands so that they fall under your control.
Like Defender Of The Croum.
Capturing land not only expands the size of your empire, but also increases the number of troops you can enlist into your army thus increasing your chances of capturing more land.
Sounds easy, doesn't it? Don't you believe it! As the Romans found to their ultimate cost, the larger your empire, the harder it becomes to control the rebellious masses and uppety generals in faraway places.
Very few Public Domain games offer the sort of compulsive and sophisticated gameplay that keeps you glued to your machine for more than a couple of hours, but Fortress is the exception. Like its commercial predecessors. Fortress is guaranteed to keep you burning the midnight oil.

THE MARK OF ZORRO Well, here we all are again for another month of barely concealed brilliance which is R I the serious reviews section.
I The big product this month is 1 the Ramiga ZS, a Zorro J expansion system for the I A1200. This is a seriously exciting piece of kit although it didn't get a Gold award. The reason for this less than top score was that there was a lot of scope for improvement and it seems that Ramiga are already looking at some ways of doing just that. We'll keep you up to date on developments.
There are plenty of other things to keep you busy this month. Magic Lantern is certainly worth a look if you are interested in animation and the Studio review is essential reading if you have a printer.
Finally, this is the last month you'll see my picture here, because I'm moving to the front Of the magazine at last. So next issue, this section will be hosted by a surprise new appointment! Be seeing you.

CO ROUND-UP 108 That there Holbom chap has a look through this month's releases on CD.
8S HOD « *u»BO 9 '0*1" It's a common problem: you buy a couple of peripherals for your A1200 and you run out of space.
Anyway, all of the really cool peripherals (such as graphics cards, multiport serial cards and so on) for the Amiga come as Zorro cards, which you can't use on an A1200. Typical. You spend all of that money on your Amiga and you can't get all of the really good stuff.
Ramiga 25 The new Z5 system can expand your A1200's horizons. Kevin Stapleford puts it to the test.
BOXING THE A4000 You could flog your A1200 and buy an A4000. However, given that you aren't likely to get that much cash for a used computer (one careful owner, low mileage on the floppy drive), this is likely to be an expensive option. And seeing as you've just spent all of this money on your Amiga, why should you sell it all to buy another one?
It's a bit like haring to sell your car and buy a new one because the furry dice won't fit in the windscreen properly.
Fortunately, selling all your worldy goods and moving west is no longer necessary. The Ramiga Z5 is a system which takes the guts out of a standard A1200 and transplants it into a completely new case. Not only this but it also adds five Zorro II slots to your A1200 so you can now fit all of those cool peripherals to your system. Plus, it also adds a real-time clock and allows you to keep using the A1200 peripherals you may already have fitted to your machine.
Actually, putting Zorro slots into an A1200 is not that difficult, because the expansion slot on the bottom of a standard A1200 is basically a modified Zorro slot.
Despite this. I've not seen any designs for building your own. You should also note that the slots are Zorro II, unlike the slots in the A4000 which are Zorro III types.
I lowcvcr, only a few cards (sudl as the 4091 and Retina Z3) are Zorro III only, so most cards should work in this unit with no probs. You would be well advised to check before upgrading to this system if you want to use a specific card.
The case is a pretty standard PC tower affair with space for three 5.25-inch disks and five 3.5-inch disks inside. It's certainly pretty tough, with the outer case being made of steel w hich should stand up to most of the things you might feel like throwing at it when your latest masterpiece of programming crashes for the fiftieth time. At the front of the case is a rather An Amiga 4000 version of this system is also available with seven Zorro slots. This is called the Z7. Unfortunately, we were unable to fully test this product but we have heard a variety of good reports about it. As with the
A1200 version, it works by completely replacing the case of the Amiga with a full tower system. The motherboard is moved into the new case and a daughterboard plugs into this, giving the extra slots.
This has much more space inside for hard disks than the A4000 (which can only hold three hard disks), and also adds another three Zoito slots to the Amiga, giving a total of seven.
Contact Ramiga on 01690 770304 for prices and further details.
Cute display which can be configured lo show what clock speed your machine is running al. Useful? Not really. But it does make your machine look more like an expensive PC should you want it to do so.
This also doubles as a disk activity monitor, with the first digit flashing when a disk (hard or floppy) is accessed. At the rear of the case a variety of holes have been cut to give access to the various pons (such as serial and video) on the back of the A1200. The expansion slot (which is covered over with a blank plate on most A 1200s) is also catered for with a small metal panel which slides off. This means that you can fit expansion cards which plug into your accelerator (such as the SCSI card for the GYP 1230+ accelerator).
The A1200 motherboard fits inside against one side of the case, and two new PCBs arc fitted to this to give die Zorro slots. One of these fits on to die expansion port of die A1200 motherboard and the second is attached lo the first one. The second, bigger, board holds the Zorro 11 slots and the real-time clock. Various other connecdons (such as the keyboard and clock panel) also fit on to this board.
Al 200 EXPANSION MARCH 1 995 There is also a connection for a PC-style power supply on this board, and this is essential if you want to make serious use of this system. The manufacturers claim that the standard A1200 power supply can cope with two Zorro cards, but our experiments revealed that a new power supply is vital if you plan to use an accelerator in die Ramiga Z5. Simply put, if you are actually planning to use the Zorro slots in this unit, you need to get a new power supply, because it would be a pity if the A1200 [lower supply was overloaded and exploded, destroying your Amiga and
your desk. This sort of thing can put a real downer on an otherwise positive day.
As you might expect, the keyboard has to be moved and there are two options for this. You can either take the cxisdng A1200 keyboard and put it into an external case or plug in a 102-key PC-style keyboard. If, for whatever reason, you choose die PC opuon, some of the keys are remapped by the interface to take the function of the special Amiga keys which, as you might expect, are not present on a PC keyboard. The PC interface is also accompanied by a small bit of software which allows you to remap these keys or even program other keys with frequently used keypresses. The choice is yours...
Although the Z5 adds much to your system, there is a price to pay. It's a bit like life - you gain something only to find that you've lost something else on the way. The most important thing you lose is the PCMCIA slot. It doesn't explode or anything, but because of the way the motherboard sits inside the case, the Continued overleaf e HERE'S ONE I MADE EARLIER... Fitting the Ramiga Z5 is a simple process, although anything which involves taking your Amiga apart should be approached with caution.... X HI o 0 Cl After removing the A1200 motherboard, fit it into the ZS casing. All of the
sockets have holes already cut in the rear of the case.
The first PCB fits on to the expansion slot on the edge of the A1200 motherboard. As well as providing the connections for the busboard. It's also a pass-through for A1200 peripherals.
The main board (also called the busboard) then fits into the case. This contains the Zorro II slots and the real-time clock.
The floppy disk drive is also relocated to the front of the case in one of the 3.5-inch drive slots. Other disks or peripherals, such as CD-ROM drives and tape streamers, can also be fitted.
RAMIGA Z5 Adds Zorro II slots to an A1200 as well as a real-time dock and a rather fancy dock display.
VALUE ••• For what it is, it seems expensive, especially as a bare PC case of this only costs around £60.
“A nice system which, iff a little pricey, does allow you to make more use off the A1200.” 76% Ramiga 01690 770304 PRICE £399 £50 (high-capacity power supply) £100 (fitting by Ramiga. Includes one year's warranty).
Ift ¦¦ X u X £ DESIGN • • • • A well-designed and flexible system, but a power supply is vital.
MANUAL ••• Very poor. It's badly translated and is lacking in many important bits of basic information.
FITTING • • • • Reasonably easy to fit. Although the poor manual does not help.
?« PCMCIA slot is inaccessible because it is right up against the bottom of the case.
This means that you can't use peripherals such as the Zappo CD-ROM drive or the Overdrive hard drive on this system.
Well. I suppose you could use it (because the socket is still active), but it would involve cutting a hole in the bottom of the case or rewiring the socket to angle it. Whether the fact of gaining Zorro slots outweighs the loss of the PCMCIA slot depends on whether you have already invested in PCMCIA peripherals. Ramiga have promised that an adaptor will be available soon to solve this problem.
The other possible problem is with the IDE drive. The busboard sits over the A1200 motherboard, obscuring the holes used to hold the IDF. Drive cradle.
Although there is a section of the busboard cut away to allow access to the IDE connector, there is nowhere to fit the drive. It would be possible to mount a drive in one of the drive bavs at the front of the machine, but this would require an extended cable, which is not recommended with the unbuffered IDE interface fitted to the A1200.
The interface was not designed to work with a cable longer than a couple of inches, and there is always a chance of data going missing between the motherboard and the drive if you use a long cable. If this happens in the middle of writing out some data, you could have a serious problem,.
You could put the IDE drive in the bottom of the machine and fix it down with some duct tape, but this is hardly an ideal solution. You could always buy another IDE interface (such as the Tandem card from Golden Image), hut this is another expense which could affect the viability of this product for some users.
Although this system is extremely well designed, there arc some real problems with it. The trouble with the PCMCIA slot and the problems with mounting the IDE drive are regrettable, and could be a minus for some users. Despite these drawbacks, this product certainly works and allows you to fit a Zorro card to an A120(1 while still using an A1200 accelerator.
The benefits of this are pretty obvious for somebody who has invested money in an A1200 accelerator, but it's not a cheap solution. As it is. This system is only marginally cheaper than selling up and buying an A4000. Although it definitely has some advantages over this.

1. You're stuck with the columns and rows of a spreadsheet-style
layout but this is much faster than Oatastore's interface.
2. Scroll bars make it easy to quickly run through a huge list of
records in search of a particular entry.
3. Address label-style printouts are a breeze to set up and
output using the intuitive label window.
4. Currency columns can be set to display a total at the bottom
of the screen, which is the quickest way to display such data.
Sorry, Softwood, but this just about covers the basics and no more.
VALUE •• Good at what it does, but there are Shareware programs which do more.
“Sparse in exciting features, but what's there is fast and easy to use.” 70% Considering the quality of Softwood’s word processor range, you’d expect Final Data to be good, and although it is a neat little mover in some ways, it falls far short of Dataslore's list of features.
Cheaper and easier to use than Datastore (though the ease of use issue is of little importance when the Digita product is so accommodating). Final Data is more like a list generator with search and print functions built in. It is also very reminiscent of the database program bundled with Pm I’al. Even to the extent of using the same example files.
Supplied on a single disk, it is easy to install, takes up very little room, and works well with hardly any memory on cither hard drive or floppy-based Amiga*. .As with Datastore, the program's front end is a near copy of that used hy its word processing brothers, so Final Fo iy and Final Writer users should find it comfortingly familiar.
Final Data is a flal-lile database, but much llatter than most. Records are displayed on screen as single rows made up of as many columns as the user wants, and it isn't possible to display the data in another format for more interesting or flexible printing. The simplicity of the approach, however, does have the advantage that you'd have to be completely compuphobic to find Final Data anything other than a doddle to use.
Final D&f&a One advantage that the package has over Datastore is that calculation fields are much easier to set up than in the Digita program. When a user needs to set up a column which calculates the VAT payable- on items purchased, or one which calculates using the values held in other columns, a little window opens with point- and-click selections for the type of calculation required.
Datastore users have to type in the calculations manually, and Digita's manual is less than comprehensive on the possible operators which can be used. If you have a lot of data which requires this sort of calculation and you don't need the extra functions Final Data could well be the perfect wallet-saving solution to your database requirements.
Other than this application, the program is best used for producing merged mailing lists for Final Copy and Final Writer, which was the reason for the program's ancestor appearing in Pen Pal boxes in the first place. There's no option to create customised record formats, and no use of imported graphics, so lovers of visually stimulating software had better look elsewhere.
Fast and easy-to-use, with extremely rapid searches, all of Final Data's features work well. I just wish that it had a few more of them.
Digita and Softwood are at it again! Not content with taking each other on in the word processor stakes they've now moved the conflict to low-cost databases. Steve Kennedy tries to figure it all out... SPEED • • • • • Could be faster, but only with rocket- assisted take-off and a long runway.
MANUAL • • • • Lots of detailed info on the program, with a good section on the available Arexx commands.

2. Boxes are easy to create and customise, but using them slows
down the program.
3. Pictures can be inserted anywhere on screen by creating a
picture frame and importing an IFF.
4. A side bar of icons similar to those in Wordworth takes a lot
ot the mouse work out of everyday use.
Datastore is more expensive than Final Data and offers more features - it’s a flat-filc database, which means that the records are stored in linear fashion like pages in a book rather than the much more complex (and expensive) relational databases with fancy cross-referencing and other advanced features.
For the home user, this makes exploring the package very easy, and as a result the Amiga owner with average experience can get stuck in with little or no need to refer to the 46-page instruction booklet. Installation is taken care of by the standard Amiga Installer program, and because Datastore is supplied on only one disk it takes up very little hard drive space.
Using it on a floppy-based system isn't too tedious, so you needn't feel left out if you don't have a hard drive.
When loaded, the program opens on a custom interface similar to Wordworth's and the Record Creation tools stand ready for the first-time user to create his or her own record format. As a bonus, there are plenty of pre-supplied examples, and you can use the templates from these for your own database. There are also databases listing all the articles and Coverdisk items presented in Amiga Format and Amiga Shopper during 1994. Don't say we're not nice to you people.
Creating a new database is very easy, and it only takes a matter of minutes to set up an attractive format for your data.
There are tools to create boxes, set up fields, and import IFF pictures. Colours can be used to give any box a more appealing look, and any font you have- available can be used for both screen components and the data itself.
Users can decide to stick with something simple such as the address book example used in the manual's tutorial section, or go for a wacky, glitzy look.
There's enough flexibility to keep most database users happy, though it has to be said that a lot of colours, boxes and graphics slow the program down quite a bit, particularly when the images and extra fonts are being loaded in.

MANUAL • • • • Good with decent tutorials, but could have more info on specific features.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • • • Makes falling off a log seem a tricky exercise in precise bodily control.
Floppy disk users would be advised to slick with the basics and maybe use just a few coloured boxes unless they like- swapping disks and waiting while the Amiga's very own 3.5-inch coffee grinder goes into action.
Once a database is created, the most important aspects of any package are the security of the data, how easily it can be retrieved, and how flexible the report printing is. Datastore scores well in all three areas. Password protection, for instance, is taken care of by simple file settings, and passwords can Ire saved with the database to make life easier for floppv users.
Data retrieval is taken care of by the Search and Query functions. Users can jump to a record by asking the program to find a string or a number for fast searches, which is really useful for long lists such as phone books or video cassette databases.
Queries, though, are much more powerful.
By telling the program to find all records containing data which matches the Query criteria, users can syphon off a portion of the database and save it as a suit- set. Possible criteria are the usual Boolean 1 a ss Than, (neater Than, Equal To set, so it's easy to search for all phone numbers beginning with 0171, all videos which were loaned to friends more than a month ago, and so on. Once these sub-sets have been created and saved, users can view just the records in a sub-set at die click of a button.
Reports can be generated based on these Queries, and the example used by the manual, a list of club members who are behind with their subs, is a perfect example of creating well-targeted merged mailing lists for use in word processors.
Reports themselves can Ik- quite flexible, so there's nothing to stop you using this package to generate invoices and the like.
Thoroughly recommended as a database for the home user. Datastore does everything it needs to without fuss or fumbling, works well with the minimum of system resources, and is kind to novices.
Can't say much belter than that for the price, now, can you? O Everything you need for home data storage and retrieval, with especially good design and layout options.

ggtr.
I r You probably don't remember when we last reviewed Magic Lantern in AF5-I. So I’d better explain everything all over again. The basic idea behind the software is that it takes your still frames and turns them into an animation. Well, that's not exactly gripping stuff is it? But it would be if the resulting animation was very smooth, and could be played back using virtual memory direct from your hard disk.
This is very useful, because now you don't need 10Gb of memory to run a minute-long sequence, you just need a fairly large hard disk partition. But then again, this sort of effect is possible with programs such as the excellent (UariSSA (AF61 Coverdisk).
But Magic Lantern has a few more tricks up its sleeve. The first of these is stereo sound support. You can get the playback to include standard stereo Amiga sound samples by loading them into the play list. This means that you can synchronise the sounds with the animation (although perfect frame accuracy is somewhat elusive).
Even more impressive though, is the ability to optimise the animation for a whole host of display cards. The previous version supported the Retina and Picasso cards in 24-bit mode. The new version adds support for the Spectrum, generic EGS cards, OpalVision. Retina Z3 and native Amiga modes, including AGA, HAM-E and DCTV formats. Moreover, you can select 8-bit. 16-bit or 24-bit modes for the majority of the display cards, saving a lot of space and time if lower colour resolution is acceptable.
The software automatically picks up on the system software or the required mode, but you don't necessarily have to have the appropriate hardware to create an animation. This means that you can create a file to run on a Retina system even if you don't have one.
Sound and vision combine to open the eyes of Mick Veitch to this animation system.
As for the playback speed, I would suggest that if you want to guarantee anything above 12 frames per second, you should get a 030-based Amiga, especially if you want to add sound. Of course, some cards perform better than others - the Z3 Retina is always going to be faster than the older Z2 model, the Rainbow is faster than the EGS and so on - Magic I intern doesn't give them a rocket-propelled start for the 400m hurdles, but it does saw a few inches off the legs of the hurdles. Given that many of these graphics systems do not actually have animation systems bundled with them. Magic Ixintem
could be well worth considering.
The only real direct comparison is with the MakcKacesystem for the Retina and Magic Ijintem would win in die 12th round on a technical knockout, but not without sustaining a nasty cut above the left eye.
Some aspects of the control just aren't as speed eeee Optimised playback is very good quality and smooth too. Even from hard disk.
MANUAL e e Very poor considering the complexity of the software, but it does give you the basics.
ACCESSIBILITY e«« The file import could have been a little more intelligent, but it's easy really.
Ramiga 01690 770304 PRICE To be announced SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS Workbench 2.0, 1Mb good as they should be. For example, to select a range of numbered images, you have to type into a string gadget the name of the start and end images, instead of just clicking and dragging down the list.
Neither arc there any sophisticated editing functions. Your frame list just appears down the left-hand side. You can insert and delete images singly, but not in blocks. Block support would be the minimum requirement for being able to insert loops and pauses in the animation, as it is this is just too tedious to do.
It does work though, and comes with stand-alone players for playing the D1FF files (as it calls its proprietary compression system) direct from hard disk or from RAM, if you are blessed with an abundance of this valuable commodity. You can also choose whether you want to optimise for space or speed, if you want double- buffering and various other choices. O Significant improvement on the last version, but still more to do.
VALUE • • • « If they get the price right (sub £60) then this will slightly compensate for its failures.
“A rather basic, workmanlike animation system, which nevertheless works well.” 76% It's been a while since anything new and exciting has happened in the video-titling market - apart from the forthcoming arrival of the German Monument Tidcr. Although PowerTitler has been available in Italy for some time, it has onlyjust been translated for the F.nglish- speaking market.
Power!iller is, in fact, a suite of three separate programs, or modules. The First of these is PowerPonl, which is a font conversion program. Next is the ambiguously-named PowerCrawl, which has absolutely nothing to do with crawling, but can be used to create horizontally scrolling titles. The Final module is Pmorrl'agr which handles the creation of vertical tiding. The idea behind PowerTitler, as is frequendy the PoweiTitler If you want to add text to your videos, you need a titler. But do you need this one? Graeme Sandiford reports m » o z V tt £ case with such software, is to provide a
comprehensive and easy-to-use titling solution. Indeed, the publishers claim that you don't even have to even know what a computer is before using PowerTitler. While this may be a bit of an exaggeration - I'm assuming that you can at least tell the difference between die rodent mouse and the computer type - the modules are all very easy to get to grips with.
As I have a hit of a font fetish, the first module I tried out was PowerFont. This is the part of the suite that enables you to DISTRIBUTOR ClassX Development 0039 587 749206 PRICE £To be announced SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS 1Mb RAM SPEED • • • Reasonable. PowerTitler is no slouch, but it is not likely to set any speed records either.
MANUAL • • • • Although it's quite a small tome, it's big enough to cover all the programs' main features.
Convert and enhance ihc fonts you intend to use in your titles. The program can load any kind of native Amiga font, such as Colour, CompuGraphic and ordinary Amiga bitmap fonts. However there is no support for PostScript fonts, but this is not much of a handicap because there are many good CompuGraphic fonts available.
Once a font has been loaded you can apply the program's built-in text effects such as outlining, bevelling and antialiasing. You can also brushmap an IFF image to a font and edit the font's palette.
PowerCrawl can be used to create horizontally scrolling titles - kinda like the scrollv messages at the end of demos, only they don't wiggle their way around the screen in a headache-inducing fashion.
You are given control over the scrolling speed, kerning and alignment of fonts, generating flash effects, brush editing, horizontal positioning of the titles and the screen resolution to be used. To produce the text for the titles you can either type it straight into the string gadget or load an ASCII file.
PowerPage combines many of the text manipulation tools of PowerCrawl v ith a host of wipes and fades. There are 42 effects in all, each with a self-explanatory icon. Each effect can be previewed before being applied, so you don't have to wait for several pages to lie processed just to find out how the changes will appear.
Well that's most of the system's features, there is nothing particularly revolutionary about it but 110 important features are missing. Except one, that is.
No AGA-support. Any graphics application which lacks support for the AGA-chip set is at severe disadvantage.
A minor fault that I also found annoying was that none of the programs were capable of multitasking. If it weren’t for these two failings this package could be ideal for beginners. Although an AGA version is planned, for the time being this is another average program with a great deal of unfulfilled promise, O ACCESSIBILITY • • • • A simple interface makes PowerTitler extremely easy to use.
FEATURES • • • Although it has all the features you'd expect, PowerTitler is hampered by lack of AGA-support.

ABOUT 31 QUIT 31 INFO NEXUS It's one of those sadly inane
facts of Amina life that if productivity and efficiency are
required, the filing system lias to be kept in order. This
can be achieved with recourse to the Shell, but it's a
time-consuming and tedious task.
That's why. For the sake of convenience, a directory utility is needed.
Directory utilities on the Amiga can be compared to catalytic convenors in motor cars. If you think of the Shell as the spurious noxious by-product of the Amiga Operating System's power and convenience, then you're well on the way to understanding why a file manager utility such as Info Nexus can be such a life saver for the user.
It's inevitable that any .Amiga directory utility is going to be compared directly against Diredory Opus, and in a straight fight of function, customisation and power. Info Xexus comes out haltered and bruised against the might of Opus. But.
Opus costs £20 more than Info Xexus. So you'd expert it to.
The time comes when you need a directory utility to keep your hard disk affairs in order. But do you need this one? Steve McGill investigates... POP '1ST ROLL Although a bit gimmicky, the Pop And Roll menu system is easy to get to grips with.
Hit the right mouse button to pull down the menu you require. Then it's just a case of selecting with the left button.
ALPHABETICALLY The main question you've got lo ask yourself is: do I really need the power of Diredory Opus' Well, six months ago, as a leaving present to sister magazine Amiga Power, 1 installed Opus on their A1200's hard drive. It let them get on with the humdrum tasks that take up so much time when using the Shell.
More importantly, it saves them time when viewing their readers' Gallery entries (titled In The Style GO- Despite their fatuous hatred of all things they perceive as technical and their initial resistance to its installation, they use it all the time now.
But Opus is overpowered for the use they put it to. Info Xexus could just as easily have fitted the bill. The most used and convenient function buttons are logically- RLL | SERHCllJ.
Laid out underneath the source and destination windows.
The program uses a menu system called Pop And Roll, so rather than mining up to the top of the screen and pressing the right mouse button to access the menus, you only have to press the right mouse button anywhere on screen. This gives you access to a load of handy functions such as filter switching, pattern matching and file sorting.
Info Xexus doesn't actually offer any new features to rock the Diredory Opus boat and anyone who already owns Opus will probably turn their nose up at Xexus. But, if you're in the market for a fairly straightforward, what-vou-sce-is-what-you- get directory utility, you could do far worse than buy a copy of Info Xexus.

Sandifford puts you in the picture about the new version of
Pegger that could revolutionise the way you use 24-bit
graphics.
Although JPEGs are quite common now, not all software supports them directly - unless Pegger transparently converts them.
The Join! Photographic Experts Group are the people responsible for that most wonderful of 24-bit image formats, the JPEG - one of the most important developments in the field of computer graphics. Storing graphical information, especially 24-bit data, has long been one of the quickest ways to fill a hard disk or other storage media, but the demands have been lessened thanks to the introduction of the highly compressed JPEG format.
JPEG is a 24-bit format that uses compression algorithms to decrease the file size of 24-bit images while maintaining the quality of the image, Peggera creators have obviously been impressed with this format, because they have used it as the basis of their image-compression system.
The fact that I only had to wait a few seconds, is one improvement over the first version of Pegger. When dealing with 24-bit images the loading time can be up to twice a quick as with Pegger 1.0. An improvement in speed is not the only refinement - the Snoop feature has also been improved. It is now possible to snoop on specific programs only and this can be done by simply selecting a program in memory or by selecting its location and director)1.
R The Snoop program can still be used to convert files in a particular directory or compress and decompress files for programs within a specified directories.
Version 2.0can also snoop across networks such as Parnet and commercial offerings.
The program works seamlessly with all the programs I tried including Imagine.
Lightwave. Brilliance and VistaPro.
It was a nice feeling to be able to load JPEG format textures into Lightwave, without having to convert them first.
However. JPEG is now pretty much the de facto 24-bit format, and the number of programs that do not support it is dwindling. But the popular programs I just mentioned still lack that support. When it comes down to it. It's just a matter of whether you feel that the convenience is worth the price. Personally, at a price of £34.95,1 think it is. ® Pegger 2.0 is the latest manifestation of this space-saving suite of programs, but what is the point of having a program like Pegger- Well, one good reason is that graphical programs that do not have built- in support for JPEGs can make use of this
wonderful format. Of course you could buy any one of several PI) programs to convert the JPEG files that are to be read by the program. Where Pegger differs from such conversion programs is that it works in the background automatically converting image files to and from the JPEG format.
With Pegger, Lightwave can automatically support JPEGs - both for output and input texture maps.
All of this is almost completely hidden from the user, in fact once the program is up and running all you have to do is load images as normal. To illustrate this, right now I'm loading a JPEG into Wordworth
3. 1. A small window popped up telling me aJPEG was being
decompressed and giving me the option to cancel this
procedure.
After a few seconds up came the JPEG as if Wordworth actually supported JPEGs.

Primers have caused more sleepless nights than any other Amiga add-on. We should know because month after month, the Amiga Formal Workbench postbag is crammed full of letters from disgruntled printer owners.
The range of problems is diverse hut one crops up over and over again - printer drivers. Although Commodore tried their best to supply a good selection of drivers, many printer owners find the official drivers either won't work with their printer or the quality leaves a lot to be desired.
Printer enhancement programs are nothing new-even the printer Badged as the ultimate Amiga printing utility, does JAM'S Studio Professional 2 live up to this claim?

The heart of Studio Professional 2 is a vast range of brand new printer drivers which replace Commodore's own efforts.
Written from the ground up completelv in Assembler language. Studio drivers are supplied for all manner of printers including HP DeskJets and LaserJet compatibles (most non-PostScript lasers use IIP l-aserjct emulation). Canon Bubblejels, NEC, Seikosha. Epson, Oki.
Panasonic, Star. Citizen, Brother and more. Even if the printer you own isn't featured, you can bet that one of the drivers will be more than suitable.
All these printer drivers are fully Preference-compatible so applications that use the Amiga's Preference printer system Itenefil from Studin Pm 2. The Studio manual also includes a section devoted to getting it to work with packages including Professional Page. Wordworth and PageStream
3. 0. This level of detail is continued throughout the manual
with every aspect of Studio's operation explained. There's
also a reference section which displays the effect of all
Studio's .r () dither patterns.
Bundled with Studio Professional 2 are a number of tools to make printing easier, including a picture-printing tool which, as well ;ts IFF. Can import and print images in Targa, GIF. JPEG. IFF Deep and any other OS 3.0 Datatype-supported format. You're not restricted to single-page images either, but can print poster-sized pictures over several sheets on a low-memory system.
The acid test for printer enhancement utilities is how much better your printouts become. Although it takes time to adjust Studio to your system, perseverance pays off and comparing the quality of Studio's drivers to the standard Workbench ones is like putting a Van Gogh alongside Steve Bradlev's Dpainl scrawls. If you want lo improve your image, then Studio Pro 2 should be top of your shopping list.
STUDIO PROFESSIONAL 2 COLOUR ME BAD An impressive aspect of Studio Pro 2 is its Colour Management System (CMS) for colour printers. CMS calibrates the colour and monochrome output of a printer so that it matches a monitor or other colour source (a scanner, for example). Supplied with CMS is a range of phosphor-type files for monitors from NEC Sony.
Philips and even HDTV (High Definition TV).

iy it* ireei iMa'mro't JD-ROJiIj] round-j The number of Amiga
CD-ROM releases is increasing every month. Jason Holborn was
there to meet the new arrivals and put them through their
paces.
The Assassins Collection £19.99 ¦ PD Soft ¦ 01702 466933 Amiga CD-ROM lilies have often been less than user friendly - unless you happen lo know AmigaDOS inside out - and beginners generally need not apply.
The Assassins CoUrclion, however, is the exception - every single as pec! Of this excellent disc is highly polished and oozes complete professionalism.
Even the greenest beginner can load and run any of the games from the MagicWB irons and custom Interplay- "The best collection of Public Domain games on CD-ROM.
Get it now!” 95% generated menu system. Many of the games are specific to this collection, so there's plenty to keep even the most hardened Public Domain games fan happy, The Assassins (jillrclion is certainly the pick of this month's CD-ROM offerings. Buy it now.
ULTIMEDIA £29.99 ¦ PD Soft ¦ 01702 466933 If you're a multimedia or desktop publishing fan then this CD-ROM collection from PDSoft should be of interest.
For your £30 you get two CD-ROMs containing lots of GIF format images, textures, animation files and sound files. Sadly, the animations and sounds are not stored in native Amiga file formats although the discs include Amiga utilities (converters and players) to handle the PC .FLI and .WAV file formats.
For the vast range of high quality images alone. Ultimedia is worth checking out.
FRESH FISH VOL £19.95 PD Soft ¦ 01702 466933 Normally. I'd be very enthusiastic about a new Fresh Fish CD-ROM but if s hard to get excited about Fresh Fish Volume 7 because everything on this disc can also be found on Gold Fish 2, which also features hundreds of megabytes of software that you won't find on Fresh Fish 7. I guess it's simply a case of bad timing. Even the content is unusually weak - unless you're a GNU fan. The disc's 109 new programs hardly justify the £20 price tag. Get Gold Fish 2 instead.
"Ultimedia is a good source of multimedia and DTV files.” 82% 65% ffl A 0 i JO 0 3 Gold £29.99 ¦ PD Soft Fish 2 TRAVEL ADVENTURE!
£19.99 ¦ PD Soft ¦ 01702 466933 With the advent of Kodak's PhotoCD technology, getting your hands on high-quality 24- bit images no longer requires an expensive flatbed scanner - simply snap away, take your film along to a High Street developer and they'll send it to Kodak to put your slides on to Compact Disc.
Washington DC photographer Nick Shears has taken advantage of this technology with the release of Travel Adventure!, a collection of travel photos from around the world.
Available in GIF and TIF format the quality of the photos is top notch. For multimedia producers and graphics fans, this disc provides a fine selection of quality artwork.
¦ 01702 466933 Fred Fish's Gold Fish CD is generally regarded as die best PD CD-ROM tide you can buy for your CD-equipped Amiga so I was pretty excited when Gold Fish 2 arrived. Gold Fish 2 is not simply an update of Volume I, but a totally new collection of PD. The two discs contain all the new PD programs released on Fresh Fish Volumes I through to 7 (550Mb of it!). Gnl' libraries.
CD-ROM admin tools and so on.
E z o ¦ e * “A collection of high-quality photos from around the world.’ 78% “An invaluable source of PD utilities from the master himself.” 85% Games Power £19.99 ¦ PD Soft ¦ 01702 466933 PD game compilations are a popular choice with both Amiga CD-ROM fans and CD32 owners starved of decent new titles. This latest disc from PD Soft was originally produced by a German company called Media Team and contains over 500 games plus - unusually - a handful of commercial 'demos and a nice selection of tips for well known full-priced games.
.Although not quite as polished as the Assassins Collection, ’own Games is still worth investigating.
TOWN OF TUNES £24.99 ¦ PD Soft ¦ 01702 466933 Town Of Tunes originates from Scandanavia and is yet another compilation of SoundTracker modules and music-related utilities for both the Amiga and PC.
Utilities on offer for those of us sensible enough to have a Motorola under our bonnet include sample editors. MIDI tools, a tracker and various sound converters. The main attraction of the disc is the massive selection of modules which are arranged into separate directories in alphabetical order.
In terms of value and content. Town Of Tunes loses out to Weird Science's Sounds Terrific double CD (AF66 80%). Which is £5 less.
65% IMAGINE ENHANCER £49.95 ¦ Gordon Harwood ¦ 01773 836781 If PD compilations are the most popular types of Amiga CD-ROM then compilations aimed at the 30 rendering nut aren't far behind. This disc was first produced by German company Oberland - every file and directory is listed in German. Imagine Enhancer is aimed at Amiga and PC Imagine users alike. There's the usual selection of 3D objects, texture maps and attributes. An uninspired release.

Could you please help me with a problem I'm having backing up the hard drive on my A1200.
HARD DRIVE HASSLES For a year my hard drive was perfect, with OctaMED V5. Final Copy. Deluxe Paint and lots more programs installed.
But when using Workbench from hard disk, I could not open any of the Prefs (such as printer and input) because my machine kept asking for iffparse.library V39 (my version was 37). I decided to reformat my hard drive and reinstall Workbench from disk using FastPrep. This was PRIX FIX I am writing with my solution to the problem faced by your reader trying to install Microprose FI Grand Prix on an A1200 hard drive. I phoned Microprose who were helpful but said that it could only be installed to the Sys: partition. But I found a way to install it on to my Work: hard drive partition.
1. Make a drawer for Grand Prix and then drag the contents of the
four disks into this drawer.
This should create four sub-drawers called F1GPD1 through to F1GP 4 which contain the contents of each disk.
2. Amend your Startup-Sequence so that the following assignments
are made (this is assuming that you've placed the game in a
drawer called Grandprix).
Assign flgp disk 1: WORK:grandprix flgp disk 1 Assign flgpdisk 8: WORK:grandprix flgp disk 8 Assign flgp disk 3: WOHK:grandprix flgp disk 3 Assign flgp. Disk. 4: WOHK:grandprix flgp disk 4 This should give you a hard drive version of a great game made even better for no disk swapping. It works for me.
Andrew Garrood, Southsea, Portsmouth successful and all my libraries are now correct and my progs are installed except for one - OctaMED V5 (from the AF62 Coverdisk).
Every time I attempt to load OctaMED I get a plain grey screen and a message saying Program Failed. On asking why, I get the message Cannot Find Object. 1 could go through the format process again with FastPrep. But this involves clearing all of the drive. My question is: is there another way of getting OctaMED back without reformatting the lot?
Edward Ash.
London Blimey Edward - you really are making life very difficult for yourself! Just because a program fails to load doesn't mean that you need to completely reformat and reinstall your hard drive from scratch. The problem that you've described is usually caused by an application failing to find a data file that it needs in order to load correctly.
Such files are usually placed in the correct location by the application's installer script but things occasionally go wrong. Take the iffparse library, for example. Technically, your machine should always have had version 39 of this library installed but an older version was probably installed by a naughty installation script that didn't check before it copied the file on to your hard disk. In this case, all you had to do was to copy the file on to your hard disk from your Workbench 3.0 back-up disks.
Bv the sounds of it, what you need is a Public Domain utility called SnoopDOS 3.0 which can be obtained from most good PD libraries. This handy tool monitors any programs that you load and displays a list of any files that the program attempts to load. If the program fails to load a given file then you'll know what to copy on to your hard disk.
GRINDING DRIVE 1 have an Amiga 500 with a 512k Chip RAM expansion in the trapdoor slot. When I switch on my Amiga with no disks in the drive, the orange drive light goes on and makes the sound like its loading a disk. This goes on for about six seconds then stops.
"hen I put a disk in, it does not load, but when I put a disk in and then turn on the Amiga, it does load. With some disks I have to load Workbench and then load the disk but this does not always work either. I've taken out the RAM expansion but this has no effect. Can you help.

Lamboum. Berks Bit of a tricky one this. My guess is that your disk drive is on the verge of kicking the bucket. If you Continued overleaf • IF YOU HAVE A QUERY... ~At Amiga Format we aim to answer V as many questions j as possible, and attempt to sort 'ISWfc out all of your W problems.
Ot course, there JgSSK are always more rfjrn questions than I yj answers, so we Jm prioritise queries ¦ according to the Jason Holborn following factors: Jason Holborn
• FREQUENCY. If a lot of people seem to be having problems with
their Supersonic KY3000 printers, then we will print one letter
and the definitive answer, encompassing all the most frequently
posed problems.
• DIFFICULTY. If the problem is actually something which only
someone with some insider technical knowledge would be able to
solve, it is more likely to be answered in these pages than a
problem which arises simply because you haven't read the
documentation.
• IMPACT. Quite simply, a question which involves you not being
able to use your machine or some peripheral or software will be
given priority over a difficulty which is little more than a
slight inconvenience.
Unlike some magazines we won't just concentrate on the areas of expertise we are most familiar with, we will take on any problem (as long as there is an Amiga involved). As you will appreciate, we do get a lot of Workbench questions every month. If you want to get yours noticed, here are a few tips: DO
• Be concise.
• Detail the actual problem as best as you can.
• Where applicable, describe the sequence of events that caused
the problem.
• Give details of the equipment you are using (including which
version of Workbench and which model of Amiga you have).
• Make sure your question is relevant and wouldn't be more easily
solved by getting in touch with the dealer from whom you bought
the goods.
DON'T
• Spend three pages telling us about your Aunt Ethel and only
then explain your problem.
• Write in with questions like: ‘I added a hard drive to my Amiga
and it doesn't work. What can I do?' (Which machine? Which
drive?)
• Send an SAE expecting a personal reply.
The chances are extremely slim.
Please bear these points in mind and remember that we are trying our best to help you.

VIRUS MENACE A friend at work has just bought a Zappo CD-ROM drive for his A1200 with hard drive. I have worried him to the point of sleeplessness with the following questions:
1. Is it possible that a CD (or a Tile on a CD) could be infected
with a virus (which obviously could not be deleted) that would
haunt you for ever more?
2. Considering that Cds in general have to be booted with the
hold-both-mouse-buttons-down technique, would it be possible
to load in a virus checker first just to verify the existence
of a virus?
If so would it check a C.D drive anyway?
3. What if a seriously nasty person submitted a piece of software
intended to go on to a CD compilation to a company and the
software was cunningly hiding a low-level format command
(perhaps date-triggered)? Don't say it couldn't or wouldn't be
done because in my experience the impossible can be done and
frequently is!
Simon A O'Hanrahan, Broadstairs, Kent In answer to your first question, it certainly is possible that a CD-ROM could contain a virus but PROLOGIC SOUND Do you know of any software that would allow me to manipulate independently the left and right channels of an audio sample?
The reason I wish to do this is that I have a surround-sound amplifier and I'm trying to add my own surround-sound effects. This is done by recording the left and right channels in opposite phase. I have the Techno Sound Turbo 2 sampler and its software which enables me to invert the phase, but this inverts both channels together. I also have the AF62 OctaMED Coverdisk which also has a sample editor but have not found any function which would help.
With more and more ProLogR surround- sound Tvs and amplifiers being sold each year, the world of surround-sound is becoming more and more interesting. And with the A1200's audio capability, the Amiga could and should be part of it Paul. Leeds So you're bit of a home cinema fan eh? Me too!
I've just treated my front room to a Denon ProLogR AV amp (which, if anyone is interested, is the best home cinema amp you can buy for under £500) and the sound quality is astounding.
ProLogR certainly is the future and I'm sure it's only a matter of time before Amiga CD-ROM it's highly unlikely. Most Amiga viruses are boolblock viruses which a) don't work with CD- ROMs and b) are so easv to spot that the individual compiling the CD-ROM would have to be a serious gimboid not to notice it.
The only types of virus that could possibly infect a CD-ROM are Trojan Horse (the virus waits until a specified date before wreaking havoc) and a Parasite virus (attaches itself to other programs).
Although these are more difficult to spot than a bootblock virus they can be detected with a decent virus checker such as John Veldlhuis' VirusChecker utility . Any CD-ROM developers worth their salt check and double check any CD-ROMs that they produce so that no virus can slip through the net.
OK. So it is possible but highly unlikely.
All A1200 CD-ROM drives need to be booted from either floppy or hard disk so it's perfectly possible to launch a virus checker before your Startup-Sequence transfers control to the CD- ROM drive if this makes you feel that bit safer.
Finally, question 3. If such a mindless vandal decided to write such a program then you can bet that it wouldn't go unnoticed for long. The reason I know this is because it's already been attempted
- a rogue version (for your reference, version 3.3) of Steve
Tibbett's VirusX was once distributed which actually wrote
viruses to disks rather than killing them. Suffice to say, this
rogue program wits tracked down and removed from the Public
Domain within a week.
EXPANSION WORRIES
1. First of all. Hard drives. I bought an A1200 with an internal
GVP IDE 200Mb hard drive a while back which I prompty started
to experiment with.
I can't remember the details, but I made a mistake and ran GVP’s FastPrep 2.0 formatting utility that came with the hard drive without knowing what I was doing. Anyway. I now have the system properly running with three partitions - DH0 (92Mb). DH1 (92Mb) and Workbench (5Mb). This seems to work fine, but I wanted to know if this would affect the warranty.
2. Is there a Workbench or Public Domain titles feature ProLogR
sound tracks. I'm not sure if this will work, but you could
try manipulating the channels independently by saving out your
sample as a mono sample of each stereo component, loading in
one of them, inverting the phase and recombining them. You
should be able to do this with Techno Sound Turbo 2.
Most modem A1200 RAM expansions and accelerators can use exactly the same SIMM chips as an A4000.
Program I could use lo organise Ihc Files on my disk lo make il more efficient?
3. Occasionally when the Amiga accesses the hard drive I hear a
fairly loud clanking sound twice. Is this normal, or is there
a problem? Normal hard drive operations do not seem affected
by this.
4. On a different subject, I am looking to increase my Amiga's
memory. Could you please tell me what the difference is
between 32-bit SIMM RAM for an A4000 and an A1200 RAM upgrade?
Could I use SIMM memory with my A1200? Could I use a virtual
memory system and what kind of drawbacks would that have?
5. I recently bought your PageSetter 2 Coverdisk from a friend
and have finally managed to import and paste text, bitmap
graphics and CompuGraphic fonts. However, I am not able to get
any colour either on the screen or on printouts. Could you
help me please?
6. Finally, I have your AF65 Pixel 31) Professional Coverdisk.
However, when I try to load it from Workbench on my AI200 with
as much free memory as possible, I get the message Not Enough
Memory. Please could you explain this?

1. How you set up your hard drive is up to you and has no effect
on the drive's warranty. Although most Amiga hard drives come
pie-formatted, this service is provided for those people who
don't want the hassle of setting up a hard drive themselves.
If you feel that you're not happy with that set-up then change
it. This is precisely why most hard drives come complete with
set-up and installation software.
2. There are plenty of Public Domain directory utilities
available but the best program you can buy for your hard disk
is Directory Opus (AF4 5 98%) which costs £49.95. Opus is
available from Wizard Developments on 01322 272908.
3. Don't worry, this is quite normal.
4. A4000 SIMM chips can be used with the A1200 but you'll need to
buy a RAM expansion board capable of handling SIMMs. One such
board is Power Computing's A1208. If you want to use virtual
memory, you need an accelerator card Fitted with a 68030 chip
and a memory management unit (MMU).
5. PagrSettrr 2 does not support colour because it's a black and
white DTP system only. It does support halftones, however, so
you can produce grey scales.
6. There’s a very good reason for this - Pixel 3D Professional
doesn't work on an A1200 unless it is equipped with Fast RAM.
You can get around this problem, however, using the fix
program on AF66's Coverdisk. O ZAPPO COMPATIBILITY Having
received a Zappo CD-ROM drive for Christmas, I was eager to
buy some CD software Wanting to use the CD-ROM for games as
well as the serious side. I wrote off to a few companies
asking for software lists. Rather than clarifying the
situation, the responses only made me more bewildered, so
could you please answer a few questions for me?
1. When will more serious CD titles be coming out? I appreciate
that it's early days yet but software companies will have to
supply customers' needs, won't they?
2. In your review of the Zappo CD-ROM drive (AF61). You said that
there were only three titles that failed to work - fames Pond
3. Lotus Trilogy and Ryder Cup Challenge. In the software list
that I was sent 39 per cent of titles wouldn't work.
That's 35 out of 90! Have you got it wrong (I very much doubt it being the wonderful mag you are) or is it the nice chappies at the software company? They even claim that Ryder Cup Challenge worked. What's going on?

1. If you examine the advertisements in Amiga Format, you'll
discover that there's actually a mountain of serious CD
software already 2. If you read our review of the Zappo
carefully. Discs that didn't work with the drive evaded our

Tict to cJed Over the last few months DTP expert Marcus Dyson has been explaining H| I _ how to tackle desktop publishing on J the Amiga. This month, in the final part of our tutorial, he recommends some essential items of software and hardware that could expand your horizons and make your DTP life easier.
In recenl issues we have attempted to show you how simple DTP on the Amiga can tie. We said, all you really need is an Amiga, a copy of Amiga Formal issue 63 (which had a full copy of PageSetter 2 on the "' Coverdisk) and a desire to produce great page layouts.
Although we weren't really lying, there arc one or two other things which can make the life of an Amiga layout artist even easier. This month we're going to look at the peripherals and software applications which transform DTP from a chore into a pleasure.
SCANNERS I he greatest pain in any DTP-er’s life is getting quality images into the Amiga to use in their documents. While we all know that a good picture in the right place can transform even the most mundane of layouts, getting these pictures into the machine is a different matter.
Paying for professional repro house scans is one option, but it's a costly one. If you need to capture pictures regularly there is a belter, and ultimately cheaper solution. Buy a scanner.
Scanners come in two kinds, (well three actually, but drum scanners are prohibitively expensive) hand-held and (lathed. A good hand-held scanner should cost you between £80 and £240, a flatbed costs over £600. Both come in colour and mono versions, and while the cheapest option is a mono hand-held, if you are shelling out for a flatbed, you may as well go for a colour one.
Most scanners' hardware is of similar quality, but they are differentiated by the quality of the software which accompanies them, the resolution that they can scan up to, and the price. If you wish to scan something 10cm by 10cm and print it out at the same si .e you need something that can scan at twice your printer’s output resolution. If you wish to enlarge your scans, you need something with an even higher scanning resolution.
A scanner can also save you hours of wearisome graft over the keyboard. If you have to key in lots of text from printed copy, a scanner with OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software can do the task for you. Some hand scanners come bundled with OCR software. If you already have a scanner, you can buy it separately.
Power Scan. £120 Mono, £240, Colour, Power Computing, 01234 843388 This nifty hand-held device comes in both colour (200dpi) and mono (400dpi) flavours, and both are the best of their kind. The scanners come complete with their own software, which is very good and has some image processing features.
Epson GT 6500, from £600, GT8000, from £850, Power Computing, 01234 843388 The Rolls Royce of desktop scanners. Not to say that they are big. Ugly and ostentatious, but that they are extremely well engineered and perform faultlessly. The cheaper scanner (the GT6500) has an optical resolution of 300x600 dpi but software interpolation takes this up to 1200dpi. The GT8000 is considerably more expensive, but if you are aiming to use the optional transparency adaptor to scan 35mm slides, it is definitely the one to go for.
Both scanners are driven by a loader for Art Department Professional, so once you have done your scanning the image is right there in your image processing package for editing, cropping and manipulating. Both scanners come with all sorts of software options which affects the price considerably, so shop around for the best deal for your needs.
CD-ROM DRIVES Everybody wants one these days, and everybody should have one! There's a CD-ROM revolution happening, and not enough Amiga owners are on board. But what can the Amiga DTP-er hope to get from the Nineties record player? PhotoCD, that’s what.
You can dispense with the expense of a scanner if you just take your piccies down to Boots and tell the nice assistant that you would "like them putting on to PhotoCD please.” When the shiny gold disc arrives back in about a week's time, you can get the images straight into ImageFX from your CD-ROM drive.
CD-ROM collections of fonts arc increasingly common now, and if you have a DTP program that can accept Adobe PostScript Type One fonts, and most of the quality ones will, there is an endless selection of fonts available for surprisingly little outlay.
TYPE CONVERSION AND CREATION PROGRAMS If your DTP package can't handle Adobe Type One fonts, you need a package that can convert PostScript fonts into a format you can use, most probably CompuGraphie. The only such package for the Amiga is Soft-Logik's TypeSmilh, which enables you to convert between type file formats and also to edit the letter shapes of a font to create your own typeface, or even create one from scratch using the program's powerful structured- drawing tools. TypeSmilh also enables the user to create all of the line and character spacing information which makes sure that the
typeface looks good when it is used.
If you are any good with structured drawing packages such as ProVeclor, which was on the Amiga Format issue 58 Coverdisk, then TypeSmilh could save you ever having to buy another font again.
And it enables you to create speciality fonts that are hard or even impossible to find.
TypeSmilh - every D I P user should have it!

IMAGE PROCESSORS Once you've got your image into your Amiga you may be surprised to find that it is too big, or too small, or that it is in 2-Tbit colour when you only wanted black and white. Never fear, there is a whole genre of programs dedicated to transforming images from what they are to what you want them to be. These programs are called image processors.
Art Department Professional 2.5, £199.95, Silica 0181 309 1111 A little long in the tooth now, ADPro (as it is lovingly known) held the title of premier Amiga image processor from its initial release (as plain Art Department) in 1990. Although its interface was always a little clunky, version 2.5 improved on this by enabling VVB3.0 owners to open ADPro documents on a public screen of whatever resolution they preferred.
ADPro s file format repertoire is nothing less than stunning, and its impressive range of operators allow many useful and creative effects to be applied to an image.
ImageFX 1.5, £149, Silica 0181 309 1111 ImageFX has caused quite a stir since it was first released in 1992. Not only is the interface prettier than ADPro s. but this package also gives you a FROM THE TOP: ADPro is a well-established image processor, although it now has serious competition from new versions of ImageFX and Photogenics.
Personal Paint is not just a paint package, but includes some very respectable image processing tools.
TypeSmith: an essential tool tor the font designer.
The Power hand scanner is a reasonably cheap method of inputting images for DTP use.
A e a n r 1 p s o I m P T s s g e o n o g MARCH 1995 rendered screen to show you what's going on with your image as you operate on it. And as well as the image processing functions. ImageFX also has a fairly comprehensive range of paint functions, which is something ADPro fails to offer.
Personal Paint 6.1, £54.95, Ramiga 01690 770306 ImageFX may lie the image processor with added paint functions, but Personal PainI is the Amiga art package with added image processing.
If your image processing requirements are quite basic (but not too basic - Personal Paint is pretty powerful) then this is the perfect alternative to a dedicated image processor. Not only does it replace Deluxe Paint as a fast 25tvcolour paint package, but it also has more than enough image processing features to keep all but the most advanced 1)TI’ users happy.
STRUCTURED DRAWINGS AND CLIP ART LIBRARIES The problem with scanned images is that they have to be used at a size appropriate to their resolution. This means that there is a limit to the size they can be used at, and if you are using a large scanned image very small (or any other bitmap image for that matter), it wastes a lot of disk space and memory and takes much longer than necessary to print. One solution to this problem is to use structured art.
Structured, or vector, art comprises mathematically defined objects, so the drawings do not take up much room in memory or hard disk space. But the real advantage of structured art is that the images always print out at the best resolution your output device is capable of, regardless of what size you use them at.
There are two w-ays of obtaining structured art the first, and possibly the more difficult method is to draw your own in an appropriate structured drawing package. Regular readers of Amiga Format already have 1‘roVector 2. from the Issue 58 Coverdisk. But they and other readers should keep an eye out for the upgraded ProVector 3. This package is the Amiga's most friendly and powerful structured drawing program.
If you aren't too good at drawing, then there is still a way of getting good quality images. Most Public Domain libraries keep extensive collections of structured clip art. And there are also some commercial collections.
A MODEM OK. So you might think that a modem is not a real desktop publishing peripheral, but anybody who takes their DTP work seriously can't afford to be without one these days. It's not just a matter of downloading fonts and clip art from numerous sources, but what about getting hold of that missing copy that you urgently need from an advertiser or contributor?
If you're wired you can get anything you need in next to no time. And with the advent of the JPEG picture file format, even true colour images can be thrown around by telecommunications reasonably easily.
The list of useful desktop publishing accessories can go on. And on, and on. The items listed above arc just a guide to some of the most common or useful accessories. But before you invest in any kit. Look at your DTP requirements and assess what you actually need, otherwise you could have permanently empty pockets!

We haven't really got the space to cover every scrolling technique that AMOS luts to offer but if you want to know more, why not treat yourself to the Amiga Format book
Ultimate AMOS'- Most arcade games use screen scrolling in one form or another. Jason Holborn shows you how to achieve this impressive effect in AMOS Professional.
To scroll a SuperBitmap smoothly, adjust tha position of the viewport origin so that the SuperBitmap is gradually shown.
IF you’re a would-be games programmer then there are a number of effects that have to be mastered in order to write arcadc-stvle shoot-em-ups and platf orm games. These include learning how to manage a large number of sprites simultaneously, how to create animations, how to add intelligence to on-screen objects as well as getting to grips with a number of graphical effects such as screen scrolling. We'll cover most of these effects in coining months, but.
For now we'll concentrate on screen scrolling.
If you've ever played the Amiga games Banshee or Seek And Destroy, you will have already seen two fine examples of screen scrolling in action. This is a technique which allows you to move either die entire screen or just a small rectangular region smoothly in any direction to create the illusion of movement. It's a device that isn't just restricted to shoot-em-ups either - in everything from football games to beat-em-ups and arcade adventures to platform games, screen scrolling is an invaluable tool for the programmer.
As you'd expect. AMOS Professional is fully equipped to handle screen scrolling in whatever form you want. Whether you want to scroll the entire screen or just a small portion. AMOS Professional can handle the job with both hands tied behind its back. What's more, once you've developed your scrolling routines, there's no AMOS Professional offers two different methods of scrolling the screen - software scrolling and hardware scrolling - each of which has its own pros and cons. Hardware scrolling, for example, is handled exclusively by the Amiga's own video hardware and is therefore very fast.
But it does have its limitations. For starters, hardware scrolling can only scroll entire screens and. As a result, it's very memory intensive and should therefore only be used when you know that you've got memory to spare.
Software scrolling, on the other hand, is considerably more flexible because it can handle any rectangular region that you care to feed it. As you might expect, this flexibility comes at a price.
Because software scrolling is handled through software rather than directly by the Amiga's hardware, it's nowhere near as fast - its speed is directly affected by the amount of screen data that's being scrolled and how deep (the number of bitplancs) the screen is. For the purposes of this month's tutorial we'll be concentrating on hardware scrolling.
Tutorial HOW IT ALL WORKS To understand how hardware scrolling works, you need to know a little about the Amiga's video hardware. In a nutshell. Amiga screens are comprised of two elements - a bitmap and a viewport. The bitmap is an area of memory that holds the actual image data (pixels) and the viewport is essentially a video window (not to be confused with Workbench windows) that displays that image data on the monitor.
The viewport is automatically linked to the bitmap when you first open an AMOS Professional screen but you can also control what part of the bitmap the viewport displays by altering two offset values which hold the X and V position of the viewport’s origin (the top left- hand comer of the viewport).
Hardware scrolling takes advantage of these two offset values by progressively increasing or decreasing one (or both) of the viewport offset values. There is one major problem with this technique, however. H the viewport and the bitmaps are the same dimensions (320x256 for a low-resolution screen, for example) then the viewport gets confused when it runs out of bitmap data if it is scrolled just a single pixel left right up or down.
To get around this inconvenience, hardware scrolling uses something called a SuperBitmap - a bitmap that is much larger in size than can actually be displayed at any one time in the screen's viewport. If. For example, the SuperBitmap is 640 pixels across and the viewport is 320 pixels, only a maximum of 320 pixels could be displayed at any one time leaving a further 320 pixels for the screen to scroll.
Hardware scrolling is one of AMOS 1‘rofessionats most impressive features yet. Considering its complexity, incorporating hardware scrolling into your own AMOS Hro rsswnal creations is surprisingly simple.
All that is required to get tilings moving is a single command - Screen Offset. This enables you to alter the offset values of any screen. The Screen Offset command has the following format: LISTING Rem Hardware Scrolling Demonstration Rem ••• By Jason Holbom Screen Open 0,640,256,32,Lowres Flash Off : Curs Off Screen Display 0,114.40,320,286 Load Iff -PH0T0DEM0:BACKGR0UND.IFF* O Screen Copy 0.0,0,319,200 To 0,320,0 VPOFFSET=0 : SCRSPEED=4 0 Repeat VP0FF8ET=VP0FF8ET+SCRSPEED If VP0FFSET=320 Then VPOFFSCT=0 Screen Offset O.VPOFFSBT.O Walt Vbl Until Mouse Key Screen Close 0 , End Screen Offset
SCRN, X, Y SCRN - The SCRN parameter holds the number of the screen that you wish to scroll. This screen needs to be opened before calling the Screen Offset command.
X Y - These two parameters hold the X and Y positions of the top left-hand comer of the viewport relative to the top left-hand comer of the SuperBitmap.
Scrolling a SuperBitmap -moothlv is just a matter of adjusting the position of the viewport origin so that the SuperBitmap is gradually shown.
Simply calling the Screen Offset command once won’t make anv real difference it’s a similar process to a frame in a film where the illusion of movement isn't achieved unless the display is updated rapidly over and over again.
It would be rather impractical to hold the entire region to be scrolled in memory at once - if the screen was to scroll at a rate of 50 pixels per second (that's one pixel per frame), the bitmap would have to be a massive 3.000 pixels across for just a minute's worth of scrolling.
For a 16-colour display widi a vertical resolution of 200 pixels (NTSC standard), approximately 300K of memory would be required to hold this massive bitmap. I think you'll agree that this is hardly a practical option on a standard 512k A500.
The easiest (but, admittedly, not the ideal) way of getting over this problem is lo wrap the bitmap around so that the same bitmap is used over and over again. This technique causes a noticeable jump if the second half of the screen doesn't exactly match the first, so you need to ensure that the start and end points of your background image link together to form a seamless join.
That's enough of the theory - there's a listing on this page for you to try out in the comfort of your own home. This listing needs access to a file called Background.IFF which can be found on the I’hotogmirs Coverdisk on the front of this magazine. Just type it in, press FI to run it and AMOS I'ro rsswnal will ask you to insert your I'hotogmics Coverdisk. Do so and you'll be treated to a demonstration of hardware scrolling.

Hurrah! Amiga Format finally gets on-line! You can even use FutureNet to find out what's coming up in the next issue of Amiga Format before it hits the streets!
Why is il that in these days of electronic publishing people still read magazines? Why do they still insist on buying these archaic devices composed of mashed trees and nasty chemical inks? Alter all. Isn't this the age of the computer, with the ever-growing Information Superhighway being built on our dcxirslcps?
Of course it is. However, the computer revolution is still underway and for the time being, magazines are still the best way of providing information. But things are changing.
Late last year. Future Publishing set up the first part of an experiment into alternative forms of publishing. This experiment is called FutureNet, and it is designed to look at how magazines could work on the Internet. Now Amiga Format is part of this experiment.
It uses the World Wide Web. Which provides a graphical user interface for the somewhat confusing beast that is the Internet. Instead of having to type long arcane commands, the user moves around by simply clicking on pieces of highlighted text.
For instance you could look at the contents page of Amiga Format ami click tin any article you fancied reading. All of the text and graphics would Classic CD Wdcomr to ihr Qawk CD Horn |Mgr' 1

articles from other Future magazines. This is a Classic CD
page.
Then be sent down the phone line to your machine, where you could read it at your leisure.
At the moment, FutureNet is concentrating on taking material from the various magazines which Future publish and transforming it into a format suitable for the Internet, but this will soon change with original material appearing on FulurrNet.
Watch this (virtual) space!
FutureNet is at the Unique Resource Locator http: www.futurenet.co.uk futurenet.html. The Amiga Format section of FutureNet is at: http: www.futurenet.co.uk computing amigafor mat.html. Please feel free to have a browse around FutureNet and let us know what you think of what we've done so far. And what you think could be done to improve it. You can send E-mail to the magazine through its pages on FutureNet or at: anifomiat@luturenet.co.uk When you start getting into (lomnis, it's easy to lose track of how big your phone bill is likely to be. If you aren't careful, you could run up the
sort of bill which would have BT inquiring as to how many years you are likely to take to pay them.
Fortunately, help is at hand. T here are a variety of programs which can give you a running total on your phone hill, and one of the best ones I've come across is Phonebill v J.2. T his extremely useful program can take the log liles from more or less any Amiga program and give you ail estimate of your bill.
As you might expect, you need to do a little bit of fiddling to set up dialling codes and take into account charge bands such as standard or cheap rate. But once you've tailored the program to your needs, I’honrbill v ?.2 could lx- exceptionally useful for keeping tails on just how much the money grabbing so and sos al British Telecom are likely to demand from you. Zj THE GREAT AMIGA MAGAZINES DEBATE H you have an opinion about magazines, how do you make it known? Well, you could, of course, send an E-mail to the writers of the magazine or if you were still living in the nineteenth century,
you could even use that quaint old pen and paper method and send a letter to the editor But if s always better to put your opinions forward in a public arena. After all. It's good to find out if other readers agree with your opinions.
Fortunately, there is already a place to make your opinions known about this magazine and others This is the AMIGA MAGS echo This Fidonet echo is the place where you find opinions aplenty about the state of the art of Amiga computer |oumalism. You'll also find several prominent Amiga journalists answering queries and putting forward their opinions.
This echo should be available from any reasonably sized Bulletin Board, and most Sysops will be only too happy to get hold If it if you ask them nicely. If you have any difficulty, you can read the messages in AMIGA MAGS on Metnet. The Bulletin Board which hosts Son Of Spong!. The Amiga Format BBS Son of Spong!

6 Skirsa Square. Glasgow G21 SOW Tel: 0141 946 2191 Please note, we will not be held responsible for any media lost in the post One of the hottest new pieces of 3D software around is Hollywood I X from American company Synergy International. It enables you to create amazing effects quickly and easily using Lightwave 3D v3.1 and above.
Hollywood IX needs a system with Kickslart 2.1 or higher. 2Mb of Chip RAM and 10Mb of Fast RAM or more. We found that 18Mb and above is required if you are using LiglitWave 3.3. If you have a copy of Art Department Professional or ImageJX. Then you can use all of the effects in these packages, as well as the ones supplied with Hollywood IX.
We were verv luckv enough to get hold of the latest release which has undergone a major overhaul, which is just as well considering it costs $ 290 (about £200).
To use Hollywood IX you need to have Lightwave running first anti then load the Hollywood IX package. When it's loaded you are presented with a series of pictures, an animated box and a description showing you what each ellect does.
Actually being able to see the effect means you don't have to waste time doing test renders. The software is so easy to use that the manual really isn't required. To use an effect, you just click the picture that you want to use. Tell the program what images you want then click Render ami wait for the package to do all the hard work for you.
Hopefully Hollywood I X will be distributed in the I'K soon when we’ll give it a full Afreview. 'I) LIGHTWAVE BUGS AND HOW TO CURE THEM... Many people have written to the 24BH Club asking for the lightwave patch we mentioned in AF67 hoping that it would solve all the bugs found in lightwave. It actually only fixes some minor bugs, but we have found a way around some of the more dramatic ones.
Here's a typical example of a lightwave bug: enter lightwave and load in a picture you want to use in the Modeller as a backdrop, go to Display on the top menu bar and choose BG Image on the side bar. Select Z Axis and choose the Image you have loaded from the layout The image appears in the bottom window. Zoom in a few times (use the key) and the screen corrupts. After a few more clicks the software bombs out There are many other problems in Lightwave that can be cured by doing a very simple thing... work with in NTSC model If you boot up your Amiga and hold down the two mouse buttons, you
can select the video mode you want to work in. Select NTSC and let your machine continue to load. If your monitor rolls at this point then it is not compatible with a 60HZ NTSC signal. If Workbench boots up OK. Then run Lightwave and load the same image into the program. Enter the Modeller and you will see a strange wipe effect that the PAL users miss out on.
Display the image in the background again and zoom away to your heart's content.
Anyone running the Modeller using Double PAL mode promotion (on the A1200 or A4000) and trying to use the Moving Preview option will encounter a breaking up of the screen. There is no way of using this option in a Double PAL mode.

DON'T TAKE THE RISC After reading vonr article on RISC technology (AT66) I have a few questions. In the part headed Jargon Busters you say: 'Exec and the rest of the Amiga's Operating System will become redundant when Commodore switch to RISC technology '. Does this mean a RISC- based Amiga would just be a RISC PC clone running Windows NT?
Would this machine be able to run existing Amiga software such as Final Writer and Lightwave, or would it just run Windows NT software?
I have owned an A500 for three years and I am thinking of updating my system in a few months. If the answer to these questions is yes I feel that the Amiga will become just another RISC computer and not a true Amiga.
ChrisJohnson, Hyde. Cheshire Any decisions on the exact specification of the new machine are some way off, so let not get too carried away by this. With an entirely new platform, al least initially, ii would certainly be easier for the RJSO- liased machine to run an off-the-shelf operating system such as Windows NT, or one of the many others available.
This would mean that Commodore or Amiga International need not spend huge amounts of time and, indeed, money re-coding the entire Amiga OS to run on the RISC platform, and give them more resources to make the hardware crs good as possible. It would also mean the new machine would have a large library of software available at launch.
Backward compatibility with existing Amiga software would be difficult, but not impossible, to achieve. The most likely scenario would be that an extra processor card would be used as an optional extra.
SELL, SELL, SELL I have thought of an idea for a computer game which I think would sell very well. The trouble is I can't program and I’m not sure how to get companies interested.
Would they take my idea seriously or do I need to produce a demo version? Even if a company likes my idea, how can I be sure that they won’t market it themselves as if it was their own work?
David O'Conner, Dinnington, South Yorkshire A very interesting question. Most games companies are ready and willing to accept good ideas from anyone. Normally the thing to do would be put together a presentation, including a storyboard of how the game would work How you would be remunerated is a different matter. Ideas are pist ideas.
According to copyright law, ideas are not copyright material, but the expression of the idea is. I) I wrote a story about a man who lived his life backwards in time, it wouldn I stop someone else writing a different story around the same idea and submitting it for the Hooker prize.
It woubl be very unusual for a games publisher to pay you just for an idea, but they all work in different ways. It might be worth your while tiying to find a programmer to work with you by placing classified ads in the press. Then you could present at least a partially completed game to a publisher. My advice would be to sort out the idea in your head, make some veiy deluded notes and gel on the phone. Maybe you could also refer to our feature in AF67 about how to gel a game published.
QUITE OUTRAGEOUS I have been a long-time reader of your magazine and until recently- considered it one of the best. That is no longer the case. Before I end my association with your mag, here are a few gripes to ponder.
Firstly a change of name would be appropriate, something like A1200Format would Ik- a more accurate description because about 90 per cent of your content and serious reviews are only of interest to A1200 A4000 owners.
Your Workbench and Mailbag sections are 99 per cent dedicated to A1200 owners, while the unemployed and unfortunate, like myself, struggle along with WB1.3 because we can't afford to upgrade because of a cash shortage. Another cross we have to bear is paying for Coverdisks you know we can’t use because we don't have WB2.
Another ploy is to put Work With Any Amiga on the Coverdisk.
Take ClariSSA, it can be loaded but is severely crippled by the lack of Arexx rendering it useless. Another is when you say a Coverdisk needs 1Mb. I Mb of what? I have 4.5Mb of Fast RAM and 0.5 Mb of Chip RAM but these programs won’t run because they need I Mb of Chip RAM and Workbench 2. A prime example here being Pixel 3D Pro.
Out of the last five AF game demos only one worked, the latest failure being a software error in Zeewolf or could it be another RAM problem. Perhaps in a future edition of Ah' you should print an editorial statement that you no longer support any Amiga with less than WB2 and I Mb of Chip RAM, then people like myself will not be misled by less than accurate statements.
J R DrinkaU, Retford, Notts FAST OR SLOW?
After reading a few of your magazines, I decided to purchase an A1200.1 received this with a copy of your Special Edition '93. From this publication, I understand that I now own a 32-bit machine, with 68020 CPU running at about 14Mhz.
You also say that it runs six times faster than the A600. So why, despite its great capabilities, does the A1200 slow down when the screen gets busy on games like Zeewolf, Syndicate, Frontier and Chaos Engine?
The A1200 should be able to handle these games in its sleep! Surely, its software should be equally as impressive as the games for the Panasonic 3DO, on which the CPU, I believe, runs at only 12Mhz.
The A1200 almost goes into reverse when the screen gets busy on Zool 2. But the Sega MegaDrive - a mere 16-bit machine - handles Sonic with apparent ease. Can it be that programmers are getting lazy by programming in 16-bit then allowing the A1200 to do the hard work, and emulate an inferior machine to play yesterday’s quality games. If this is the case, when are we going to see games which fully utilise the A1200‘s capabilities? Or perhaps the machine isn't as agile as we are led to believe.
Mark Bridge, Warrington, Cheshire There is certainly a case when games are written for all Amigas that some of them do not take full advantage of the Al200's considerable abilities.
AGA-specific games should not have this problem though and when you see lightning fast serious applications like the Photogenics image processing software running on the A1200 it does make you wonder why some Amiga games appear a tad lethargic.
I throw the pages of Amiga Format open to any games programmers who would like to answer these pertinent questions.
In the meantime, Mark, please accept the small consolation on becoming the first ever winner of an exclusive Amiga Format sweatshirt to amaze your friends and confuse your enemies.
Oh, and if any other readers want a sweatshirt, turn to the Readers' Offers pages (116-117) where you'll find them modelled by the Art Department.
You seem lo have some legitimate gripes, anil some not so worthy ones. For a start, although I know that some other people support your view. completely rejute Ihe allegation that Amiga Formal is an AGA-only magazine. That is an outrageous, wholly inaecurate and quite hurtful statement, particularly lo the people on this magazine who wink very hard to bring you the best for your Amiga, whatever size, shape or Workbench version it may lie.
First of all, would like lo dispute your figures. In Ihe January issue which would have been on sale as you unole, there are only 19.5 pages which deal exclusively with A1200. Or even WB2 products in information. This represents 22 per cent of the editorial content of the magazine - hardly grounds Jor complaint, esfierially as such a large percentage of the A migos now in use 1)0 have WB2 or better.
In the games section I I pir cent is WB2 or aboie. And in the serious section this rises to 53 fun cent. Even these high figures hardly rrflert the percentage of active ownership. This is particularly relevant in the Workbench section, where most pleas fin help are from beginners, and most beginners have A1200s.
A fart which seems lo pass you by is that we do not create the soflware, we merely review it. We review what is released. can hardly see Ihe magazine refusing to review The Lion King just because it was A1200-only, and the same goes for Photogenics.
It seems to me your complaint is really with Ihe industry. Perhaps you should petition the hardliner manufacturers and software publishers telling them to slop supporting new technology and start writing for machines which haven't been sold for four years.
The only consolation ran idd is that if you had bought a PC. When you bought your Amiga, you wouldn't hr able to run more than III per cent of today's soflware.
As regnnls Coverdisks. There have been some inexcusable mistakes on our part, particularly with Pixel Pro (this will run under I. 3 by the way). All we can do is promise not to do it again. We will address Ihe subject of compatibility by including system requirements on Ihe disk labels. A lot of people don 'I seem lo read them anyway - we had many returns of our Lion King demo from A 11)11 A60II owners, although it stales quite clearly on the label that it is AGA-only.
DIFFERENT STROKES It turns out that Amigas have personalities too - not just its ape descendants! Hid you know that some of the later .Antigas are different from the rest of their race?
Yes, it's true and here's why.
We brought the issue of your magazine with the demo of eewolf on the Coverdisk (A -66)anri found it didn't work on our A12(X)s. The game looked so good that we asked a friend to try loading it on their machine, again an A1200. It loaded and ran with no problems.
All the chip versions seemed to be the same in all three machines according to Syslnfo, so the discrepancy, we thought, must lie with the disk drives.
THE MAN AT THE TOP Write to Commodore UK managing director David Pleasance do Amiga Format, 30 Monmouth St, Bath BA1 2BW.
The two machines which would not load Zeewof had Panasonic internal drives. I iowever, after SICK AND TIRED I have been a Commodore purchaser for a few years now from my C64 to my A500 and now my A1200. And I am sick and tired of people criticising the Amiga. When you complete your management buy-out will you start advertising the Amiga on TV? I am fed up of seeing Pcs. Nintendo and Sega advertisements on TV every day. The Amiga is the best machine in the world and I would love to see it on TV because this is one of the best ways to get the Amiga back on the road.
People say that your machine is dying, if that's the case how come there have recently been excellent titles released on it such as Cannon Fodder 2, Aladdin and Mortal Kombat IP Gerry McNally, Glasgow You're not the only one who gets fed up with people criticising the Amiga!
Assuming the management buy-out goes through - and currently we are getting increasingly optimistic signs from the liquidator that it will - we will relaunch the new company with a new marketing plan. This will reflect the product line we plan to produce and the messages we need to communicate to our audiences. Advertising, whether on television or otherwise, will be under consideration, along with a number of other marketing tools.
Finally, you're right about the great Amiga titles that are currently being launched - it's a sure sign that the publishing houses realise the value of the Amiga and its huge user base.
A new Coverdisk should be on its way to you if you had a problem with Zeewo f.
Swapping the disk drives from one machine to the other it was clear that they were not to blame!
We have found that some or the later AI200s have a real mixed bag of chips and components in them, they check out OK with software inquiries but if you lift the lid they are all different - particularly those made just before Commodore ceased trading. Did Commodore struggle to meet demands last Christmas and push out substandard Amigas? We have our doubts.... Lesley and Matthew PS Doesn't David Pleasance look like Jeremy Beadle.
0 A typing error crept in to the David Pleasance column in AF68. The reply to the letter And Now For The Good News said: "...the 16-bit systems are capable of delivering this." It should have read "...the 16-bit systems are incapable of delivering this." The typist responsible for the error has been sacked and the entire Amiga Format production team have been shot.
Well spoiled tlhe driiv problem, not Ihe Beadle look-alike). I commend your experimental and pioneering nature.
Indeed, there were problems with the Zcewolf demo. Unfortunately, Zcewolf slipped through the testing net because the fault didn V appear on any of the A 1200s in the office. It has long been a problem that there is no such thing as a standard Amiga, and game companies have lo balance their disk protection systems against the potential problems of gelling them lo work.
There is a happy ending to this one though. We informed Binary Asylum of the problem and they have now fixed Ihe disk-loading system for the full game.
They have also kindly re-coded Ihe demo for us, so if you sent your disk back lo DisCofty I Jibs because of this fault, a new disk should have reached you by nmv.
A TAXING QUESTION Many clubs are advertised in your magazine that offer PD and technical support but it's all for a cost. What age do you need to be- to run a club like one of these and do you have to pay tax for membership fees. I have started an Amiga 600 1200 40(H) club which uses a BBS im disk. It is free anil we have a large range of topics including spoi l. Amigas. TA' and much more.
Il would be nice if you could publish this Idler because we do not have many members so far. If anybody is interested could they please write lo the following address.
Steven Goff Fugitive BBS. 32 Church End, Towcester, Northants, NNI2 7PX My understanding of the lax laws are that charities are the only organisations which don’t pay lax, and you certainly can V register your club as a charity.
Although you may be eligible lo pay lax, if your club doesn't make a profit, there is nothing to pay tax on. If you are selling up Ihe club as a commercial concern (you are going to make money out of it personally) then you would have to register these comings. Your local lax office or Citizens’ Advice Bureau can advise you further.
GchhI lurk, and please accept a small donation of a box of second-hand disks, on its way to you now (well, nc needed lo clear out llie cupboard anyway).
PLEASE HELP ME One of my favourite games. The Great Ciana Sisters, has corrupted, anil is no longer playable. I have enquired with several software dealers about how to get a replacement but to no avail. I believe that the software house that wrote the game no longer exists. Please could you publish this letter in the hope that one of your readers hits this game somewhere in the back of their collection and they would Ik- willing to sell swap il.
J Fraser, Westerham, Kent know the feeling. One of my favourite games is Sword Of Aragon, which seems lo have passed into history.

Selection of images from.
A weeks, this image proves thvTSmiga art demands as much attention as traditional MOUSE FRIEND By Lars Martensson. Sweden PD fans will recognise Lars' work from the graphics for many well-known demos. Drawn in 256 colours, the reflective surfaces, which were hand drawn with a limited range of colours, are very impressive.
GOLDFISH By I'alan Chan. Ruskington Valan is a convert to the Amiga from Mac and PC graphics and uses Lightwave. This image illustrates the powerful Depth Of Field option - see how the weed in the foreground is slightly blurred. Brilliant!
KAWASAKI By Martin Edwards. South Glamorgan This hand-drawn image was constructed in 256 colours using an A4000 030 running Dpaint IV AGA.
Credit must also go to Martin's wife, Jane, who had considerable influence on the image.
MODEL By Patricia Hodgson. Cleveland Surprisingly, this subtlely shaded portrait was drawn on a standard A500 Plus running Dpaint III.
Drawn by hand from a photograph, Patricia says the most difficult part was the hair. Note the use of dither patterns to give an illusion of more colours.
THE BOT FAMILY By Cary Ryder. Shrewsbury You don't need an A4000 running Lightwave to create wonderful rendered art as this ray-traced image from Gary Ryder proves. Gary created the image using an A1500 with 4Mb of RAM and a copy of Activa's Real 3D 1.4. SNOW LIFE By laurence Shichle This isn't technically the most impressive or the most striking Imagine-rendered image we've ever featured but it's the simplicity and bold colours that really make it work. The gorgeous blue hue adds to the atmosphere immeasureably.
