The unit slots into the auxiliary port on the left-hand side of your CD32 and (ionmu mentor establishes a link between your machines by means of a lead that connects to your Amiga's serial port. (ionmunirutor adds five new sockets to your CD32: MIDI In. MIDI Out. MIDI Thru. A4000 keyboard and A2000 keyboard. The ability to add a keyboard is a useful feature because it enhances the machine's level of interactivity. For op. .a: |Q Run example, you can enter text - handy if you want to use AmigaDOSon the CD32. The software comes on CD-ROM for the CD32 and on floppv for your Amiga. The programs include: Twin Txfrrns. Srmet. Mainvirw, V'irwlrk. Photol.ite and the Commsbook. Installing them is simply a matter of running the installation script. The Comm.slmok. which is made up of five sections or pages, is the main program used to communicate between machines and control the activities of the CD32. The Message page can be used lo overlay text input on your Amiga over the current display on the CD32. The Files page is where you do all your copying from the CD32 to your Amiga. Selecting a file is basically the same as using Workbench's default file-t equestcrs. The View page enables you to copy across pictures and animations to the CD32's memory, where they can be displayed in full AGA-modes. The CD page operates in a similar way to a normal (.D player, but as well as playing audio Cds you can also plav MPEG files such as movies. To change the transfer rate, you use die Settings page, which can also be used to set the default download directory. However, the real power of Communicator is realised when you use it in conjunction with a multimedia program. The package has support for Scala and Mcrlia mint. When used with either of these programs the CD32 becomes a host unit - displaying sound and animations, including MPEG and audio tracks.

Hello again. Yes. Thank you for your letters of concern, I am still the editor of Amiga Formal. A lot of yon seem worried that being promoted to editor of this illustrious mag is akin to being on Death Row. It's not quite as bad as that, and rest assured that I intend being here for some time (unless my Lottery numbers come up. Which is a bit unlikely swing as I don't buy a ticket).
We thought that this month we might just be able to announce the final result in the confusing contest that has become the Commodore saga, but while the end is certainly near, the final votes, so to speak, are not yet in.
The real problem with a situation like this is that not everybody is pulling the same way. The parties involved roughly fall into three categories: the creditors, the liquidators and the investors.
The investors, or potential investors anyway , such as Commodore UK and CEI, are keen to have the remains of the company sold on as quickly as possible, and so Is every other right-minded individual in die Amiga community.
On Ihe other hand, the creditors - the people to whom the now bankrupt Commodore eompanies. In all their guises, owe money - arc- more concerned with getting as much of that money back as possible. Some of them may have financial pressures of their own. So they may appreciate a fast result, but many can afford to wail if that means they'll get more out of the- deal.
The liquidators are caught in the middle. On Ihe one hand they are mindful that the value of the company, the money they could gel front any potential investors, is diminishing every day this sad tale drags on. On the other hand, they could be sued by the creditors if they aren't seen to be doing a good job. Added to that, they are sure to gel paid whatever happens.
So. While the management buy-out team, CEI and every Amiga owner on die planet are crying out for a quick decision. Ihe people who will make llial decision aren’t in any particular rush.
However. I'm pleased to say that it looks like the enlire process is heading to the courts for the final bidding phase, so a result can't be far away.
You may be wondering why there is a picture of an odd-looking mountain on this page. 'Ihe answer is reasonably straightforward. Arthur C Clarke has a new bonk out. It isn't a sci-fi novel, but a book of science-fact - a rather well-prndurrd examination of Ihe possibilities of terraforming Mars. What the hell has this got to do with your favourite Amiga magazine? Well, the Itook is illustrated with pictures of the planet as it undergoes terraforming which were creates! In I'ista Pro, which you may remember from an Amiga Formal Covcrdisk.
.Arthur used the software to construct images of how~ the landscape- would look in each stage of development, and the resulting book is very interesting indeed. Take a look at page 32 for the full story . In the meantime, here is a picture I rendered of Olympus Mons. The largest volcano in the solar system, on a spare A3000 we have- in the office. Not bad. Eh?
Before I let you get on with the rest of the issue. I'd like a quiet word with all the people who contact the mag by E-mail. This is absolutely the last time I'm going to explain. When sending an E- mail to the mag (at aniformaKb futurenel.co.uk), you absolutely must include in the subject line, one of the following topics: Mailbag (letters to the editor). Workbench (take a wild guess).
Competition (for ANY competition). Queries (for mail order and other mag-related questions).
Subsrriptious (for er. Subscriptions). Do not mark Ihe mail urgent - this only serves to annoy me. And will incur my wTalh. On (hat note, have a good lime with the rest of the issue.

Commodore Amiga International has finally cracked It and
that we will be seeing the legendary RISC-based Amiga In the
shops by Christmas.
But the Amiga has been out of the positive frame for a year now. And a great deal has changed... AMIGA FORMAT news fls SteueJobS (ex-Apple) from NeXT Corporation discovered to his cost, the price of entering the hardware arena can be high. NeXT have dropped their elegant, all-black machines and are concentrating on operating systems design.
Although we are all used to the Amiga, to Its custom chips and operating system that doesn't require 8Mb the rest of the hardware world will see product from Amiga International as 'new'.
Power Mac This means David Pleasance has got to be Incredibly canny about the way he plays the re-entry into the market.
There is stiff competition. Not only have Apple and IBM teamed up with the PowerPC processor and platform - well Apple have got the product out there, rumour has It that IBM have decided to line the walls of warehouses with their efforts - but Silicon Graphics and even Sun are attempting to get Into the act. Sun are making a minimum 25 per cent discount on their machines If you trade In "Any machine from any manufacturer" (I wonder H my old PCW will get me a few £1.000 off a SPARCStation?). Silicon Graphics are already ...Dauid Pleasance has got to be incredibly canny about the may he plays
his re-entry into the market.
Knocking out a sub-£6.000 workstation for high-end graphics... hell even the price of the Quantel Paintbox has dropped below £50.000. These prices might seem high (OK. They are high), but when you look at the kind of people who would be using the new Amiga, you can see that one side of the potential Amiga market is rapidly becoming a bear pit. Film. TV and other broad and narrowcast mediums that would have made use of a decent, low-cost Imaging computer are now being wooed by the big boys. While I'm not saying that the Amiga can't hack It (pardon the pun) I am saying that in order to win back
confidence and market share, the nascent company Is going to have to offer some heavy incentives.
_ With Sony, Sega. Nintendo. 3D0.
Atari and even Apple vying for the games market share, the Amiga is going to need some massive support. My advice is to remember the core markets - the enthusiast on an average budget. Pricing a new Amiga above £1.000 will be Its death knell. Give me the A1400 at £499 and I'll be a happy man.

The 11-month saga that has been (he unwinding of Commodore may finally be draw ing to a close. In the Iasi month the Commodore I'K team have had numerous meetings with the liquidators, tying up the details of their latest hid for the company.
The process has been more protracted than is usually the case because, for both sides to agree the hid. David Pleasance's I'K management buv-ollt team had to prove they had the financial support and the liquidators had to stale cxacdv what thev would lx- buying.
Because some of these companies are being wound up by different liquidators, it makes it difficult to determine just who can sell what. For example, the Commodore logo is being sought by a European l’( manufacturer, and is Ix’ing sold off by the liquidators responsible for Commodore Germany, who own the rights ? | The Baguley Column |p ||[Zpn I a I phase to it. But an encouraging step forward is the move of court proceedings from America to the Bahamas. Hearings in I'nited States courts tend to take longer because the investigations into the finances before a company's collapse arc tar more
thorough.
As we go to press it seems that CEI base placed a new bid with the liquidators.
.At this stage, this is of no significance other than indicating that CEI arc still serious about their intent to buy the Amtgu .As soon as one or other bid is found valid and terms arc agreed, the Contact Richard Baguley on baggers@clx.compullnk.co.uk V The opinions expressed in The Baguley Column are only oooaslonaUy those of AmlgA FortzuU.

tentatively estimated to be worth £I8m. Although, for an
international company, this is not a huge amount, it isn't the
sort of money you could borrow from a High Street bank.
Big money usuallv comes from merchant banks, but they aren't likely to risk their money in any venture where the return isn't more or less guaranteed. It is hard to imagine how any bank would finance a venture with so little guarantee of a quick return.
The alternatives to borrowing money from a merchant bank could Ik- to leant up with any one of a number of companies in the Information Technology field and there are plenty of keen players in the Far East. The other possibility is a partnership with a companion closer to home - perhaps someone like Hewlett Packard, who were one of the major component manufacturers for Commodore, and who were also planning to supply the company with the PA RISC chip for the next generation of Antigas, Where the money comes from may have no alfect 011 the direction of the company, but a tie to a major IT player
could well see them influencing the future Amiga products. 'Zz bidding process will move to the courts for the final phase.
The Commodore management buyout L'K team have already reduced the si e of their bid significantly from that of six months ago, so David Pleasance should be able to muster the cash to escalate the bidding war substantially in the time remaining, whether it will he by enough is another matter.
One of the many unsolved mysteries in the Commodore affair is where the L'K team arc getting their money from.
Although the exact amount of their current bid has not been revealed, the “The Commodore UK team have already reduced the size of their bid significantly from that of six months ago.” never thought It would happen, but this month I'm going to quote Margaret Thatcher. Not the one about how train drivers going on strike will 'simply not do", but the one about the Falklands war: 'The possibility of failure does not exist*. Can you conceive of a world without the Amiga? I can't. Pcs are all very well, but you can't buy yourself a PC for around £300, take It home, plug Into your TV and be off, can
you? The problems with Commodore have left a hole In the market which nobody has yet filled.
So what should David Pleasance do? Strange you should ask, because this month we have the edited version of the acclaimed postal course World Domination In Four Easy Steps On Only SS A Day by the acclaimed marketing guru Baggers. He has kindly added a special commentary to the course, which is In Italics.
Step 1 - “Get a stonking design sorted for your computer. Find a young, idealistic chip designer, give him the equipment he needs and make sure that you’ve got a good Can you conceiue of a luorid mithout fimigas? I can’t. You can’t buy a PC for £300, plug into yourTU and be off... contract which means all the designs he produces are yours."
Fortunately the Amiga already has this, so there Is no need tor Mr Pleasance to hang around In university bars sizing up the talent. Unless he wants to, that Is... Step 2 - “Create a marketing mystique. Run a series of ads showing the machine moodily lit, and obscured by bits of sculpture or use another such poncy artistic device."
Although the Amiga has a great Image already, people still need to know that It's back. Invest heavily In promotion. It'll pay ott In the long run.
Step 3 “ “Get product In the shops. What's the point of having the coolest product since Ice cream If the punters can't get It?"
There Is undoubtedly a certain amount of street cred In producing a computer (or a magazine) which has a. erm, ¦limited circulation', but the real money Is In selling big numbers of computers. Or magazines.
Step4“Neuer stand still. Invest In Research And Development. Alternatively, find somebody who has spent more than you and nick theirs."
Ahem. I'm sure that the latter bit won't be necessary, but RAD Is vital. Especially In a market which moves as fast as computers. Get that RISC machine out. Chaps!

And politicians all over the world are increasingly worried that the unregulated spread of information could pose a threat to national security.

The familiar tabloid concern of children gaining access to pornography was cited as an obstacle to the Government AMIGA PUTS VIRGIN ON TOP A startling sales performance at Christmas has seen Virgin bounce to the top of the video games heap. No mean feat considering that it's up against the likes of Electronic Arts, Acclaim and console giants Nintendo and Sega.
A vital part of Virgin's strategy was domination of the ever-so-importani Christmas period. A muscular line up included console and PC titles such as Earthworm Jim, Jungle Book and Doom 2.
But more important to Virgin taking the top s|« t were the big-selling Amiga titles such as the Disney-inspired Aladdin, and Thr I.ion King, plus Cannon Fodder 2and the biggest selling game of the Christmas period. Sensible World Of Sotcrr which Virgin handled on behalf of Renegade.

Information super hard shoulder Anew report published by Keynote makes fascinating reading for those interested in the wider implications of computer technology.
Gallup's survey of 1,000 people revealed the following results: just 18 per cent considered themselves to be a competent computer user and 37 per cent of interviewees said that they rarely, if ever, use a computer.
Only 19 per cent considered computers affordable for a small business or for the average family. 20 per cent used a computer for playing games and 15 per cent used a computer educationally.
A miserly 11 per cent said they made a conscious effort to keep up to date with developments in computer technology and the smallest percentage, 6 per cent, said they used E-mail. A further (i per cent said they liked the idea of computer shopping.
When age was taken into consideration, 31 per cent of lti to 24 year olds said their computing skills were up to scratch compared to just 12 per cent of 45 to ( 4 year olds. Just what these figures will read like in 10 years time is anyone's guess.

TBAM 17 M0VB HOUSE CompuServe, a leading British subscription communications network, aroused controversy after posting a licence in the Go Graphics forum stating that anyone using GIF iGraphic Interchange Format) files, or software that used such files would have to pus royalties in the form of a licence.
It turned out that CompuServe's hands were tied due to a compression routine used by GIF called LZW (Lev Zenipel Welch) which was developed and patented in 1985 by Unisys. Despite the LZW routines spreading freely throughout the Net. They were never Public Domain.
CompuServe's vice-president. Tim Oren suited that throughout the sorry affair. CompuServe were, “an unwitting partner to Unisys," during the seven year period of GIF's proliferation.
In an attempt to make amends CompuServe are now working on the development of GIF24. A 24-bit format featuring no loss of quality when it's compressed. To ensure that diversification of standards doesn't occur. CompuServe are committed to keeping G1F24 as an open standard that costs nothing to use.
Considering that the new standard hasn't vet been finalised and CompuServe intend developing it in co-operation with users and software developers. Amiga Format readers who would like to have their say in the matter can send their suggestions and comments to: gif24@csi.coinpuserve.com on the Net. Or to csi:gif24 on CompuServe.

YOU’VE GOT THE BEST - NOW TRY THE REST The April issue of Amiga Power is gorgeous. On the front is a brilliant space scene, created by ourselves using potentially dangerous special effects techniques to celebrate the Frontier 2: First Encounters stuff inside.
There's a feature about SWOS, in which we challenge Sensible about why it's so full of bugs and ask them what they're going to do about it then eh. And there are a fair few reviews, including a fantastic exclusive one of the tremendous Skidmarks 2. The disks are good, too. Packed full of demos and games - things like Super Loopz and an excellent four- player version of the old Atari VCS tank game.
Basically it's a really good issue - one which we can look at proudly as we lean exhausted on our spades. Oh, it's on sale now.

It's all done through a serial link connection between two A1200s. The course is split in half between each Amiga and the display has a healthy overlap so that confusion when looking from one monitor to the next is minimised. Control couldn't be easier. On each Amiga, two players use the joystick ports with the other two using selectable keys on the keyboard.

All those present were more than happy with the smooth gamcplay and friendly rivalry between competitors. One insider said: "This could Ik- the biggest thing ever to happen on the Amiga. If only more people were aware of the fun that can Ik- had with linked games."
Further features of the game include eight different types of cars to race, ranging from Mini Coopers to cows on wheels, and there are up to 30 different courses to drive on.

Word processors can do a lot more than just create pretty pages and print them out. Stevie Kennedy looks at some of the powerful features lurking below the surface and puts the three main contenders through the ultimate work-out.

Modem Amiga woiil pint essm is [i | often labelled powerful it it can use I outline louts. IuqHirt graphics. And make use ol colourful WvilWli screen displays, but there's a ( teat ileal more to a powerful wordsmith than these superficial touchstones.
If you’re using a pat kage to write a 70,000 word novel or put together a degree thesis lor a science subject, the sort oi features vou would need arc quite often not the usual ones highlighted on the bark of the box. You might need a complex indexing feature, or tile ability lo automatically number sections ot a document. It might Ire very inqrortant to you that you can quickly build a long custom dictionary, or that the package makes full use of footnotes and endnotes.
Again, lor more complex documents with many different sections or chapters, a slick method for generating contents anil an index would In' just up your street, and you'd probably want close control over how this is achieved. Commercial users, on the other hand, would Ik- more interested in mail merging and the program's ability to communicate with databases.
The list goes on. But it soon becomes clear that though Amiga word processors have converged somewhat in the way they look and the way they implement WYSIWYG (Whitt You See Is What You Gel), they are still very different under the surface. We took the three big power houses in the shape of Final Writrr, Winilunrlh and Protexl, and put them through the mill to see how they sh;i|M-d up under stress.
To test them we used a 32.000 word document to which copious footnotes, endnotes, a bibliography, index, and table of contents were added, a form letter lor mail merging, and a report which required section numbering, tables, and long indented quotes. These are tin- sort of tasks a modern package will Ik- asked to perform, and when a package fail's to do what you require of it, you end up spending more time working around its weaknesses than working on your project.
BY THE BOOK .TV riling anuhing of a considerable length brings out some of a WP's I hidden capabilities and gives the user I cause to thank the programmers for I nr hiding a menu item which goes unused I n ordinary circumstances. It's also a good I to put extra pressure on obvious | tratures like spell checkers.
Writing letters or short essays won't.
I foe example, pul too much strain on I asdic ex. Tables of contents or footnotes, but I a thesis will. Bookmarks, scroll bars, and
* ujnp-to-page buttons also come into their om when navigating
around a file which I la** more than 50 pages, and it is here
that I the real testing begins.
I tried the three packages on a couple I 4 different texts. One was of 15,000 words, I (be other 32,000, the latter containing a I Urge number of fictitious words and place ¦ o* character names. Both documents I •rrdc-d a table of contents and indices, I and. Because they were both manuscripts.
| thes required headers and footers I ci .mauling clear information about the author, date, title, and page number.
SPELL CHECKING Jpcll checking was the first stop, and in _a tests it became clear that Final Writer and Wordworth were more or less neck and
• rxk. With 1‘rotext holding a clear lead over both. The two
WYSIWYG packages have perfectly good UK English dictionaries of
o»et 1 10,000 words, and both will add new words to a user
dictionary as they go along, but checking long documents word
by word is much slower than Protext’s akrmative method.
Bs hitting the Escape key and using (be command mode Spell, 1‘rolext can lie instructed to scan an entire document twfiw h takes only a few seconds) and filter out all the words it doesn't recognise, then present them on screen as a list. Hitting S for store, I for ignore and so on at the rommand line makes spell checking a long document at least five times quicker than using a window and the mouse.
In addition, the Protext user can have as many custom dictionaries as they like, keeping one for casual or fiction writing and another for business use. This avoids conflicts when it might Ire fine to use words like "nope" or "this'll" in character dialogue, but not in other types of writing.
All three programs employ elementary grammar checking, such as picking up on TOP TIPS If your software only supports one user dictionary, you can still have more by building up dictionaries and making copies of the resulting files. Because dictionaries are usually stored in ASCII format you can merge them by loading both files and copying one into the other, or by using the Workbench loin command.
Repeated words, but both Protext and Final Writer have problems with dialogue. When a line of speech goes something like “Look out!" He yelled both spell checkers assume that the exclamation mark is the end of one sentence and conclude that “he" begins a new sentence with a lower case letter, even though, for dialogue, the above is grammatically correct. The same thing happens with question marks and can be very frustrating. Wordumth doesn't check for capitals at the start of sentences, so what can otherwise be a lack of attention works in its favour in this case.
To lie fair. Final Writer's speller preferences make it possible to turn this sort of checking off, and a 1‘rotext user can set an ignore marker to stop the error from living flagged a second time, but a bit more intelligence towards this common use of the English language would have been most welcome.
When chopping and changing large areas of text. 1‘rotext used to enjoy an advantage due to its use of block markers.
Just set a marker, jump down to any page you like, then sot another one and the whole block is selected. Wordworth and Final Writer, however, both now use Shift Selection which enables the user to hold down the Shift key and select just one word, then use the scroll bars and click anywhere else in the document to mark the end of the selection.
This method works at about the same speed as 1‘rotexl's block markers, and because the Amor package is quite slow at drag-selecting past the bottom of the page with the mouse, the two WYSIWYG programs compare very favourably.
Continued overleaf 4 - WORDWORTH ¦ The Style menu bar makes selection I of fonts, sires, and other common attributes in Wordworth quick and easy.
Softwood took notice and added a similar feature for Final Writer 3.
2 The button bar Is only capable of displaying as many icons as you can fit on a screen. Most experienced users hardly ever bother with the buttons.
3 Footers are simple affairs in Wordworth, but it is an advantage to be able to set them up in template form and never worry about them again. Not as flexible as Protext but quicker.
4 Choice of page numbering conventions is limited, but you can put a word such as Page in the template and have that appear on every page of the document 5 Auto Correct is an excellent tool which enables you to add commonly mis-spelled words to a dictionary. It can also be used to replace abbreviations with the full name.

- A- but there was a trace ol blood on the closet door. Susan
tried to stop the shaking in her hand and reached over to grasp
the handle. It had blood on it too. Terrified of what she might
find inside, she vanked the handle and tumped back. There was a
sound like someone punching a pillow and she felt the air from
a bullet hiss past her ear as Jarkovic slumped forward out of
the closet.
He was holding one dripping hand to his blood-covered chest while he tried to draw a bead on her with a silenced revolverl Susan screamed, more from rage that the man was still alive, and brought the golf club round in a wide arc. Catching Jarkovic on the side of the face.
There was a sickening crack, a groan of pain, then he lay still on the floor. This time the assassin was well and t uly dead.

XjjHs When il comes to indices and tables of contents. Final Writer tops Wordworth lor quick but flexible generation. Protext can be very powerful if the user takes advantage of the built-in commands to create multi-level indices, and Wordworth has a quick and simple approach, but Final Writer has the most complete automatic generation feature.
Text and paragraph formatting can be included so that the finished table has exactly the look you require, and there arc up to eight levels of indexing. This means that the user can have an index entry for Architecture, then a further subentry for Post-Modernist or Gothic with a further sub-entry for Cathedral and Gargoyle. This is one of the package's most complete and powerful automatic features and the same user-defined approach is taken for lists of illustrations and endnotes.
Prolext users can match this flexibility when it comes to using built-in commands, however, and the Amor package beats the other two hands down in terms of raw power. Academic writers will find the use with this sort of layout, outlining looks something like this: Title
1. Section heading 1 .a Subsection
l. a.l 1 .b Subsection
1. b.l Paragraph
2. Next section
2. a Subsection
2. a.l Paragraph
2. b Subsection and so on... Creating a document in this format
places extra demands on indexing and contents generators,
because the simple page number is replaced with a complex
paragraph notation.
Legal documents, scientific reports, and a variety of other formal texts make use of outlining as standard, and if your word processor can't handle this feature, then a whole document type is relegated to the dustbin.
Where a document has a footer set up for all pages, you might think that things can get crowded at the bottom of the page.
Protext footnotes, however, use as much space as they need, and push the main text upwards instead of pushing themselves and the footer off the bottom edge.
TOP TIPS You don't need to have Wordworth's Dig sense to make use of abbreviations - not if you have macros. If you have Arexx support you can automate standard Search And Replace functions to replace your own abbreviations with full words.
Make sure that your abbreviation isn't a real word though.
A similar set of commands can be applied to endnotes, an area which takes 011 special significance in academic and scientific texts. Both of the WYSIWYG packages have endnotes, and Final Writers can be edited for style and formatting, but neither Final Writer or Wordworth can match Protext in this department.
Of complete phrases and subject- referencing in an index particularly useful for theses or dissertations.
When building an index, the Protext user need only insert, say. The phrase Political Association as a comment line, then index this as a reference entry. The comment appears on screen but not on the print preview and not on the hard copy. Not as easy to use its Final Writer's automatic options, perhaps, but a great deal more powerful.
Wordworth's index generator has two sub-levels for entries, and can indicate page ranges where an entry occurs very frequently, but for many complex documents this isn't enough. For example, a dissertation on economics might require an index entry like this: INITIAL REPORTS... I I nother one of the specific types of
* r ' document created on a word processor is the report, a
format which requires most of the features we've looked at for
longer documents, but which also has its own demands. Foremost
of these is the outlining feature. If you're not familiar MAIL
MERGING One of the most common uses of word processors is mail
merging, a technique whereby a letter is typed once and then
matched with a data file to produce hundreds of copies, each
with a different name and address. All three packages perform
mail merging either through the use of data files (lists of
names and addresses usually) typed in using the word processor
itself or by importing files saved from a database. All three
Wps have sister database programs in the form of Prodata
(Protext), Final Data (Final Writer) and Datastore (Wordworth).
Marxism 245 and Lenin 252 and the labour theory of value 267 critics of 312-315 faU of 341 I ref: socialism D 24 Protext, though it can use only one level of nesting, is the only package of the three capable of generating such a cross- referenced index. Even Final Writer's facility to include a phrase in the index is restricted to phrases taken directly from the text itself.
Headers and footers are another area in which Protext shines. Unlike Wordworth and Final Writer, whose templates and master pages set headers and footers more or less rigidly. Protext can turn them off and on at will from one page to the next.
Files from other database systems can be used through the standard ASCII format, but Wortlworth also offers direct import of Suparbasa CSV files and those from the Mailshot Plus package. In terms of power, Protaxt is just ahead of Wordworth, with Final Writer lagging behind. The reason for this is that both Digita and Amor provide for conditional mail merging.
The need to produce a new address database every time you want to narrow the scope of a Form letter.
Final Writer users are stuck with having to jump between their WP and Final Data, I'm afraid.
Protext's advantage over Wordworth is the In and Not In tests, which could - for example - be used to find everyone not in Central London by searching for 0171 numbers and excluding them.
This seemingly simple extension to the test procedure gives Protext a unique advantage. It’s one which most home users would probably never need, but those running a small business should stop and think just how much time the In and Not In tests would save them.
This means that instead of placing a merge field in the text of your Form letter and having the package pick up all records in the database, a limited number of tests can be carried out to check the data in a particular field and filter out only those people at which the letter is aimed. You could, for example, use conditional merge to find just Birmingham addresses.
It’s perfectly possible to create a sub-set of your data by carrying out the filtering process within the database before exporting the merge file, but conditional merging allows for easy testing without Of the three packages we put on test, only Wordworth fails completely to allow for outlining, and though it would be possible to type the section and paragraph numbers separately, then manually indent each sub-section and paragraph, this time- consuming and rather fiddly approach is far from ideal.
Final Writer has a number of pre written macros. If you want any more, however, you'll have to learn the lingo... and replace all single carriage return characters with a space, thus removing them from the ends of lines.
Final Writer's Arexx commands are potentially as powerful, but less user-friendly. Any Final Writer owner with Arexx knowledge should be capable of programming macros to perform pretty stunning operations such as drawing shapes using the polygon drawing tools. Using scripts in this way ensures that the shape Is always the same site and In the same position.
Wordworth has a menu-driven librarian command which does the same job as Pretext's macro recorder, but Digita have made a deliberate decision to steer away from macros and keep everything on menus and in dialogue boxes. This way. All of Wordworth's features are easy to access.
Final Writer has an automatic oudining feature which works in a particularly quick and simple fashion. When typing a document to begin with, the user can choose styles from a selection of section name, topic name, and two levels of sub- topics (paragraphs), and then assign these styles to the headings and paragraphs throughout the document.
Once the report has been completed, choosing the outline option from the Tools menu automatically re-formats the document into a report format, adding TOP TIPS Use fields in your database as flags when selective mail- merging. It is easier to check a flag value concerning, for example, the country of residence, rather than trying to decode the last line of the address and work it out that way. For example, Bath could have England, Great Britain or UK.
MACRO MANIA Of the three packages, Wordworth is the only one which doesn't support macros of some kind, which is strange considering how powerful they can be. Final Writer has an Arexx port and over 200 of its own commands, while Protext sticks with its built-in commands and an automatic macro recorder.
:ed States merica, free-for-all ttion leafet It's possible to use Protexts Arexx port and any of the built-in commands to create Arexx-based macros, but with an automatic recorder and command mode on hand you'd have to be a masochist to go any further.
Pro text's hotkey-based macros are for pre-set strings of text such as the user's name and address, and they make it easy to build up a glossary of commonly-used phrases. By using the appropriate ASCII code, however, you can include the Escape key at the start of a macro, thus opening Command mode and giving access to much more power.
The Exec command can be used when in Command mode to launch any script which has already been defined using stored commands. These are available for use within documents and always begin on a fresh line with the symbol. When Pro text sees this, it knows that what follows is a command which can perform actions ranging from turning proportional spacing on and off to complex mail merge routines.
Exec files can be built up containing nothing but stored commands. For example, a macro which always comes in handy is one to scan an ASCII file numerals, one of the two standard numbering systems, are not supported, though numbering in the formats l.a.l and A. 1 .a arc.
Frotrxl, on the other hand, supports both styles of numbering and has auto- incrementing variables which automatically change when moved above or below another section number. Setting up an outline is therefore a case of indenting the paragraphs and subsections as you see fit, and placing the variables in the section heading.
Continued overleaf e section and sub-section numbers, and applying a user-defined indent as it goes.
The main limitations arc that automatic reformatting is not carried out. And Roman numerals aren't supported in the numbering system.
In large reports, it is often necessary to move entire sections or subsections around the document, thus changing the order in which they appear. Final Writer won't reformat the outline once it has been created, the only option being to load up a pre-outline version of the text, make the changes, then outline it again. Roman PROTEXT ?

containing the merge data, which is from a dub membership
database, and then instruct the program to read the fields for
name, address and telephone number.
2 When the print merge begins, these lines ensure that printing is paused while the program asks the user to input the current date. This could have been set using the Sys Date variable when using a battery-backed dock.
3 This format tells Protext to print the name and address on each letter, reading them off the mergefile as it goes.
4 The If statement is a powerful conditional mall merging tool which, in this case, checks that the member in question has a phone number, in which case the paragraph referring to a phone call is printed.
5 The El (else) line only comes into play if the current member has no entry in his or her telephone field and prints a request that the member write with suggestions rather than phone.

VjfJaj'. -JrvnivCrATga- Print preview in Protext shows how the document will appear on paper, including headers, footnotes, and footer information. Note the way the footnotes make room for themselves and the multi-line footer.
XjjlSs This is not nearly as cast as using Final Uvifrr's automatic indexing, and would look like this: "TOP OF DOCUMENT" DP 0 lone decimal place for numeric variables!
SV a = 1 Isets the main chapter to 11 SV b. = 1 Isets subsection to 1 initially!
• ‘START OF CHAPTER- * S*a.&. Chapter title A9A8?a&.&rb.&
Subsection title lA9A is Ascii code for a tab mark) A variable
which has a full stop after it automatically increments each
time it is used. And. If placed in another part of the
document, it takes on its new number, Protrxfs approach is a
little tricky to use at first, but a template can be set up for
report documents and the &a&.&b.& strings set to macro keys so
that you need only define them once.
In common with conditional mail merging, auto-incrementing variables aren't something you'd use every day. But for writers who use report outlining, the facility is one which alone makes Protext worth buying. If simple report outlines arc more your style, though. Final Writer is a good bet for fast, efficient generation.
Another feature of essays, reports and theses is the indented quote. This is usually an entire paragraph from another document which has indents on the left and right, and sometimes a text style different from the main body text. It's common that the author wants to place a FINAL WRITER footnote at the bottom of the page so that the quote can be fully attributed immediately. 1‘rotrxt is the most difficult of the packages to use in this respect, because the user is forced to place a new ruler before the indented quote, then apply a style for the text, and finally paste the default ruler back
in. Both Wordworth and Final Writer go about things with a great deal more ease.
The Final Writer user, for example, can define a style for the quote complete with different typography such as leading and font size, but has to resort to a separate TOP TIPS If you lack proper outlining features, you may find it useful to start off with just a list of subject headings. Then they can be all styled the same way, and you can simply insert the text in between them. A copy of this list of subjects can also be styled differently to act as the contents for your finished document.
Paragraph formatting requester to set up indents, justification, line spacing, and hyphenation. Wordworth uses a very similar approach (without the style lag option), but has one important advantage over Final Writer- inter-paragraph spacing can be set in Wordworth using any user-defined point size to add an exact amount of spacing between the quote and the rest of the document. Because this applies only to the quote, inter-paragraph spacing helps to mark it out as separate from the document, allowing for different spacing before and after for a section that really stands out.
Document titles are included in an outline on I request but the program defaults to Outline if none is specified. Notice that the use of Final Writer's style tags can make all the difference to the presentation of a document.
2 Topic names are printed and numbered without extra indentation so that they read down the page in a logical fashion. Too many indents would mean the final layer of a sub-topic being left with only a couple of inches of print room.
3 Indents are fully configurable, but the default has been calculated to give a good general effect, and it works well. This makes it an even quicker job to set up outlines.
4 Sub-topics are either given a lower case letter or a standard numeral. Roman numerals, for paragraph numbering in many types of document, are not supported.
Pretext also allows for such spacing, but only in terms of line spacing, though the package's excellent footnote facility is a boon when using indented quotes. I still prefer l.orosrript'% use of different layouts which can be applied at any lime, but then you can't have everything in life, can you?
CONCLUSION UN ow, you're probably expecting me to tti recommend one of these packages.
Well. I'm not going to because all three have their particular strengths.
I'd go for Wordworth as a general purpose power house. Final Writer for jobs which require good indexing or headers and footers without the hassle, and 1‘rotrxt for any seriously heavy requirements.
Though the oldest of the three and still demanding a much steeper learning curve than its WYSIWYG competitors, Protrxl 6.5- has many hidden talents, and its more keyboard driven approach would result in a much higher operating speed once the user had become expert with the program.
Final Writers Arrxx port and 220-odd commands remain an under-used feature which the A fcxx-convcrsant user could put to good use. I lowever, apart from index generation, outlining, and the ability to closely control the style of footers, headers, and endnotes, the program still lags behind Wordworth in several areas.
Despite its major speed overhaul for version S. I, Wordworth still seems slower for graphics, but it is more flexible for importing and exporting text and graphics, has belter typography controls, and includes its own table generator which helps greatly in creating reports. .As a WYSIWYG package. Wordworth's variable zoom feature, scoffed at by some, is also a godsend as far as I'm concerned.

Steve McGill finds out.
Dust because they're cheap a j When you've been flicking through the Market Place and other ads in Amiga Format, you've probably noticed that many budget games by independent coders are being advertised. These games are not PD - just exceptionally cheap. But are they worth it and is the re-emergence of the 'bedroom' programmer a good thing for the future of Amiga games?
£ The overheads involved in producing a full commercial game are daunting: programmers, designers, graphic artists and musicians have to be found. Marketing, advertising, publicising, packaging, distribution, wages, retail margins and shipping costs have to be met. And while all that's going on, journalists have to be wooed and enlightened about the philosophy and ethos of the game.
A daunting undertaking made all the more uncertain by the lack of any guarantee of a financial return. No surprise then that such a smorgasboard of overheads, organisation and cash considerations can be restricting, offputting and nigh on debilitating to someone with the ability, but not the means, to put together a good game.
Player- 1 Select
r. .i r l-.ir n i. r. But the roots and future of the Amiga lay
and lies in the hands of the enthusiasts. According to Richard
Holmes of Black Legend: "There are many talented Amiga
fanatics out there who never get the chance for their work to
be published."
Just why this is so is debatable. But beyond debate is the heartwarming reality that individuals can, and do, write their own games and sell them at a fraction of the price of commercial releases. In some instances, such as Gravity Force 2 (reviewed in PD Select, page 75, this month), nothing in the commercial sector comes close in terms of playability and out-and-out fun.
It took 18 months of work before GF2 was deemed fit for release into the Public Domain. The programmers didn't have to succumb to the creative restraints of anxious publishers and deadlines. And that, more than anything else contributes to the game's beauty.
Sometimes all that's needed to turn a home-grown game into a chart-bound winner is recognition. Perhaps that's why many programmers choose to go down the route of self-publishing. Good luck to one and all. Format salutes your tenacity, determination and conviction.
CAR WARS Orbital Software, 137 Coombe Lane West, Kingston, Surrey KT2 7HF Two disks, £4.95 Influenced heavily by the 8-bit game Trans Am, Car Wars wins the prize for unfinished business. The scenario appears to be a kind of post- apocalyptic desert, dotted around which are the various trappings of some sinister organisation or other.
The good guy drives a desert buggy resembling a cross between a door wedge and a telephone. It fires three different weapon types and can reach a fair old speed if escape is required.
Unfortunately, Car Wars is too difficult.
Consequently, disillusionment sets in rapidly and even at £4.95, it doesn't represent good value for money.
Verdict: Watch this space.
ROCKETZ by The Farm, Exclusive PD, 7 Beresford Close, Waterlooville, Hants, P07 5UN Too disks, £10 (A1200 only) Originally doing the rounds as a Public Domain release, Rocketz is a tidy little rumber that should gain converts and nooefully be improved upon in later ncarnations. It's a Thrust and Oids oenvative, that could easily be confused ¦rth Gravity Force 2.
The basic premise is sound - fly a spacecraft around caverns and levels and try to kill your opponent. Goodies rdude, different models of spaceship, a -.andy one-player battle mode, Afferent weapon types, snazzy AGA graphics, and air ducts that blow you off course Downers, when compared to Gravity Force 2, are the limited number of levels - eight in all. GF2has over 60.
Considering GF2 is PD and Rocketz costs a tenner. The Farm could have done better Despite that, it's enjoyable, pkerabie and should inspire anyone Ttrkmg about trying to sell a game.
Verdict A top game, somewhat overshadowed by Gravity Force 2.
MARTIAL SPIRIT by Steven Buddie, Black Paladins, Hillcrest, Veryan, Truro, Cornwall TR2 5QA One disk, £6 Advertised in the hallowed pages of Format, Martial Spirit boasts seven playable characters and two bosses.
Each character has two special moves which are reasonably easy to pull off.
It's a one-player or two-player game and there's a choice of three speed ratings. Our verdict on this game is mixed. It looks OK, feels OK, plays OK.
But there's nothing outstanding about it.
GRAVITY FORCE 2: Quit* limply one of th* best garnet published. Ever.
Due to the number of beat-em-ups that now reside in the limbo of budget land. Martial Spirits not going to set the world on fire. Tnat said, Steven's got the right idea, and who knows, if the game becomes popular, the mainstream software houses may just sit up and take notice.
Verdict: Not slick, not polished, but just gritty enough to put it on the better side of average.
And finally... There's simply no denying the fact that the Amiga, more than any other home computer platform, has a cornucopia of talented, able and motivated enthusiasts, dedicated to the longevity and potential of the machine.
It's inspiring to others and that, above all, will ensure the life of the Amiga well into the next century.
¦ There are many talented Amiga fanatics out there who never get the chance for their work to be published.

A fractal vision of JUIars Arthur C Clarke's masterplan for the colonisation of mars - completed with a little help from his Amiga.
Surely every reader of Amiga Formal must have heard of Arthur C Clarke. His contribution to science and literature is immeasurable, he is both an artist and a progressive thinker, penning the science fiction classic 2001: A Space Odyssey and also proposing the use of geostationary satellites for communications.
Although a prodigious writer of science fiction, his latest work is based entirely on fact. It was a combination of ideas inspired by Hawaii, the data processed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and a look at the amazing Vista Pro fractal landscape generation software that gave Arthur the inspiration for his latest work: The Snows Of Olympus.
Arthur has been an Amiga fan for years, and one of the programs that really leapt out at him was Virtual laboratories' Vista Pro. Long term readers of Amiga Format will surely remember the software, because the full version has featured on the Coverdisk of Amiga Format The Vista software started off life as a fractal landscape generator, creating random terrain and using advanced shading techniques to build up a SD picture of the landscape adding grass, snow, water and so on to create very realistic scenes of almost photographic quality. The software was further refined so that the user in ft
ft S a could be more specific about what altitude the tree-line was. Add fractal clouds, adjust the water levels and. In general, have more control over the landscape environment.
Virtual Laboratories then took the software a bit further and instead of just generating random landscapes. Irista was given the ability to generate landscapes based on real geographical data.
The data was taken from American scientific surveys, so now users could generate realistic looking images of real locations. Soon, geographical data from NASA meant that whole new worlds could be rendered with quite incredible accuracy- using Vista Pro.
Back in 1970, Arthur C Clarke had taken a helicopter ride, his first, over Kilauca, Hawaii's huge, active volcano.
This left a great impression on him. One he was to remember when he first leamt of the existence of Olympus Mons a year later.
A great deal of time later, when he saw Vista Pro on his Amiga, an idea formed in his head, an idea for a book about the terraforming of Mars. With the Vista Pro software he could easily create snapshots of what a Martian landscape would look like, were it to be covered with grasses, and watered with atmospheric rain.
Not only that, but by tweaking the customisable values in Vista, he could also create all the stages in between, from the very first signs of vegetation - probably something simple like algae - to the huge forests which could some day exist on our nearest The Snows Of Olympus £18.99 (ISBN 0 575 05652 5) Published by Victor Gollancz, Viiliers House, 41 47 Strand, London WC2N 5JE.

His book. The Snows Of Olympus, would normally cost you £18.99, but you can have one delivered to your door for the price of a stamp if you correctly answer the following questions and get pulled out of the magic cardboard box. We have 15 copies to give away, so just answer the following:
1. What year did the Viking landers arrive on Mars?
2. Who directed the film version of Arthur C Clarke's 2001: A
space Odyssey ?
3. What is the most abundant atmospheric gas on Mars?
How long is a Martian year?
Who claimed to have discovered canals on Mars?
How tall is Olympus Mons?

SoflWood Products Europe, New Street, Alfreton, Derbyshire. DE55 7BP. Telephone: 01 773 521606 Facsimile: 01 773 831040 T I he way we all communicate today has gradually evolved from early cave paintings by Prehistoric man, through Egyptian Hieroglyphics and eventually on to a method of symbols representing both letters and numbers. Early inscriptions in stone gave way to clay tablets, papyrus, parchment and ultimately paper, and the Greek alphabet became the basis of most of today's languages.
Books were created by hand until the mid 15th century when crude printing processes were first introduced. Albeit w ith continual refinements, printing methods have, until very' recently, remained the only way to distribute the written word and hence a host of information throughout the world.
The biggest leap forward has been achieved in the last ten years!
Through the adoption of computer generated text as a new standard, complicated layouts and designs can now be generated and printed at the touch of a few keys right on your desktop. And it doesn i stop there.
Archiving and record keeping works hand in hand with , these new methods of processing text and allows far faster data retrieval than ever before. This latest technology has not just revolutionised the world of print, but has opened the floodgates lo an explosion in communication possibilities throughout the world.
At SoflWood, our constant aim is to bring you these : powerful, up to date technologies with the best possible software for your specification of Amiga.
Our wtml processing packages have repeatedly won the favours vf magazine reviewers, who luive awarded Word Processing Publishing... Whatever specification Amiga you ow n. SoftWood have the perfect solution for your requirements.

Team 17's new All Terrain Racing is lovely to look at, but does it cut the mustard? ...page 44 ALIEN BREED 3D: The first-person perspective Doom- stifle shoot-em-up from Team 17 previewed. P39 PLAY AMIGA FORMAT l“’ The charts are ridiculous. Games AJI released months ago are hitting the upper reaches of the full-
• , price top 20. Why?
Because you can pick up a full price game _ for £4.99 from certain retailers. Like US Gold's patchy Winter Olympics which was int released 18 months ago. A retail giant buys up copies cheaply and on the shelves they go. Bargain, ell? Why was Premier Manager 2 in the top five for ages? Because you could buy it for £8 instead of £26.
What affect will this have on the budget market?
Wfcy should Kixx, The Hit Squad, et al, bother with
- •packaging games, knocking off a tenner and upwards when you
can nip out and buy Kick Off 3, a ¦slaltvely 'young' game for
£5? And why should you pay £17 for a re-released copy of 0-77,
when you can gat Micro Machines in Future Zone tor £10? You'll
¦¦ties though that in the stores, the real budget gaaws sell at
their recommended retail prices.
M this practice continues, our choice of Amiga gaaas will diminish. Budget labels won't bother to Mdeaie - the cost will be prohibitive, and High Saul retailers will go out of business. Can they aflosd lo pay huge rents and sell games for a fiver?
STEPHEN BRADLEY AMIGA FORMAT'S REVIEW POLICY CHART ATTACK Every month we scour the world'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.

No... with a Blizzard or Cyberstorm 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 boards 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!

Assemble an unfeasible amount of street bunting, swallow a packet of Kctory V's and rejoice Doom it isn't.

Net (as I one does should), happened upon a I message from a

I Anonymous convincing him that indeed,

17 had originally thought of dong a version for the PC but once
I Doom hit the shelves they decided L a®a 'st it. So when the
chance came, I were more than delighted to deve-:c the project
for the Amiga.
It's no fun... Of course, the Alien Breed series has I been around in various guises for years, I one verson staying in the charts for P some nine months, but Breed 3D will be I *» i tmate in the collection. Instead of the top-down view of its predecessors, this is a first-person perspective affair.
The game's world is all 3D and texture-mapped and complete with Gouraud-shaded graphics - in essence, fabulous looking and quite unlike anything yet seen on the Amiga.
Unfortunately, only the owners of AGA machines and CD32s will get the chance to play it. And their mates.
...being an illegal alien Unlike Death Mask, Alternative's recent venture into 3D territory. Alien Breed 3D features full rotational character movement - no 45 degree-only manoeuvres here.
Team 17 kindly suggest on their press release that we: 'Took out for real time inverse-kinematic objects."
Apparently, this means the aliens act individually yet as part of a whole. Or something. But that's not important right now, for Breed 3D is to feature a meaty head-to-head mode via a serial link, though, thankfully, you only need one copy of the game.

We've already played an early version and it is truly very impressive indeed.
And we know you'll be interested, though more likely ecstatic to learn of Afs exclusive playable Alien Breed 3D demo on next month's Coverdisk, and you'll surely want to read the definitive review too. The biggest Amiga game of '95? We await. Continued overleaf ¦ APRIL 1995 SCREENPLAY PUSSIES GALORE Team 17 01924 291867 This game has been described as "immensely comical", by Team 17'sAlan Bunker. Pussies Galore is a four-world, 50 frames per second scrolling platformer, due to make an appearance on A1200 and CD32 in April, and it's all about cats. If you choose to purchase the software upon
release, you will be Boris and your task will involve kitten rescue, from the clutches of one Evil Eric.

- MAKING GAMES Gametek 01753 553445 Gametek are stepping up their
Amiga profile with some gusto. Bloodnet, reviewed last month is
one of the best adventure games in ages and in the next few
months, no less than five titles are set for release on the
Amiga and CD52, of which. Frontier: First Encounters is, no
doubt, the most eagerly awaited To some it may seem an odd time
to release a rash of titles while Commodore remains in apparent
chaos, perhaps more surprisingly so because Gametek are hardly
known as a prolific Amiga softie.
Most magazines fell over themselves to top each other's scores when Elite II was released and it sold in droves, though there were complaints that it was bugged to the skies. Yet we still receive umpteen requests for help as well as reams of tips every month.
We don't print 'em though. First Encounters, Gametek claim, will be bigger and better (as you would expect) with enhanced graphics, finer craft and a full-on adventure plot. Let's hope so.
Bureau 13 is based, apparently, on a popular pen and paper role-playing game. Eee, the things they can do nowadays - they're turning it into a computer game, of all things. So what's the deal? Secret Government agents, no less, are investigating the paranormal, the supernatural and the Chingford Axe Murders. And some of these entities are, for the purpose of the game, extremely dangerous - you, yes YOU must annihilate them utilising the various attributes of the agents.
To add insult to injury, as they say, one renegade agent is hell-bent on destruction, so you must deal with him, and not spare any mercy while you're about it. Bureau 13- it's a point 'n' click graphic role-playing. Due in May.
Hair raising Gametek are big on Bs at the moment.
Baldies and Brutal: Paws Of Fury make up the threesome. Baldies first. The press release suggests that, "this is not to be compared to either Lemmings or Settlers otherwise some large Scottish people may be knocking on your door."
Now of course, most games would love to be compared with those titles, and as we haven't played Baldies, we simply wouldn't dare build it up, for fear of large Scottish people.
Tribes of small people working through various themed worlds - domination is the name of the game, as Depeche Mode would have it. Sounds kind of nice - we'll see in Duly.
Brutal is a cartoon-style beat-em-up and features all the usual beat-em-uppy stuff - different characters, special moves and tournament options. To increase the mirth factor, heads will roll at obscure angles and bodies will move in a manner not usually associated with the human being - you know, the sort of things that used to happen in Hong Kong Phooey. The month of Dune will, doubtless, reveal all.
More immediately in pipeline terms is Star Crusader, a Wing Commander- esque 2D space strategy adventure shoot-em-up, of which we should have a comprehensive review next month. Or the month after. The best news is that all the aforementioned titles will be available on both floppy disk and CD32.
Of mercies, large and small, we shall indeed be thankful.

The difficulty level is set on Easy, the music firmly clicked Off. Lump into Arcade mode, where you race against four computer opponents, then • choose one of three sets of tracks on the menu - Forest, Sports and Canyon.
There's a Space track too but you're not allowed to drive on that until you've raced through the others. Nor can you race on the Space track in the two- player head-to-head Battle mode until the Arcade mode is conquered. Why?
Because, the Space tracks are the second best, after the Sports.
Way to produce a two-player racing game without splitting the screen - no problem here, for it works just fine.
Any road up, ATRarrives and professionals as we are, we know the job really could not be done without taking another close look at Micro Machines. And again. Micro Machines is a fantastic game, friends. Fantastic.
But ATR is the subject of the month, so without much ado, on we plough.
Team 17 are not known for producing turkeys but their original foray into racing territory produced the monumentally uninspiring Overdrive. It wasn't a BAD game as such, but there were numerous superior racing games already perched on shelves. Keen to set the record straight, Team 17 got behind the wheel and came up with ATR.
In the mode Anyway, Arcade mode it is. Sports track selected Go for the novice four-by-four jeep, bound to be the most tame Then get to the shop and purchase your addons - power steering, acceleration, turbos, and grip. Race on. Promising start, in first place at the bend Knocked a bit then, second place though. Damn, why do the computer cars never skid on oil patches? Damn, why, when a computer car overtakes you, does it Stephen Bradley speeds up the back straight, takes his finger off the accelerator and lets the momentum sweep him round the corner... We're arguing about this game. Lofty
petrol pump attendant and part-time Formula One driver, Steve McGill harbours a certain affection for the young whippersnapper while your correspondent regards it with some suspicion, proferring the nod towards old rogue Micro Machines as the benchmark for such fare Why are we comparing these games? On the face of it, racing along desks and pool tables bears little relation to ATRs 'Grand' Canyon, Forest, Sport and Space tracks, yet the basic premise is remarkably similar.
Motor at such pace as to send your hapless opponent scrolling off the bottom of the screen, gaining points in the process. This process is the only Only one set of tracks stands the test. Decent circuits would gain ATR 10 per cent more.
Rfsacoear out of sight, never to be seen until the next race? And that's orr, * you qualify, of course, and to ¦me :-e next round you have to get aac -a soot at least.
So t s hare But then that criticism cojc pe eveled at many a racing 9 r-e oa-ticularty in one-player mode.
He-: ’-facnmes is no picnic on the Mm* = ;• ’able. No, what really irks with ATJ? S :¦« dubious quality of the tracks.
Spots e.eis asice (there are 28 comes •n all), the tracks are no fun to eoe »- :¦ Is particularly disappointing boci.ite the car control is excellent - fOu car sx.d happily around corners, ass * icc 'v on the snowridden courses, bat o. oo get the feeling that you're in ttar e qf a motor vehicle.
ATR drawn. Fme. QUjje the racing game 7 out of 10 Team 17 promised. ATR is "T~ OK, but no more than that.
Su* t-e courses The Sports tracks am kr s mply because they are the ¦os* cluttered of the four, although I Too- 17 nave insisted that cones orrc. - : , 'egenerate, even when you Iptrss* a ’i tr-e No Cones option. The F»ar tracks are awful. Annoying, ¦(¦trstxng Barely visible arrows direct .you seng t-e course but when you're moving at pace, cars all around, it's difficult to keep an eye out for them. The Canyon courses are equally poor, while the Space tracks are quite a frolic - particularly in head-to-head mode because there are limited passing places and you have to make your move at just
the right times on the circuit.
Power-ups litter the tracks - some reverse your opponents controls, some boost your bank balance enabling the GRAPHICS: 8 out of 10 Nice perspective, well drawn. Fine.
SOUND:_7 out Growling engines sound great ADDICTION: 6 out of 10 Sports tracks, yes. Others, no.
PLAYABILITY: 6 out of 10 Sports tracks, yes. Others, no.
Purchase of choice kit at the shop, while others send you into overdrive, shooting you forward at such speed as to make any benefit redundant.
This isn't the game we were hoping for. With a little more care and attention on the courses this could have been jolly. As it is, only one of the four sets of tracks stand the test. Decent circuits would gain ATR about 10 per cent more; as it is. It just ain't good enough.

As an exiled Kilmarnock football fan. A typical weekend routine in Bath runs something like this: Saturday - around about 3pm, ensure access to radio or a teletext television. Read top fanzine, The Killie Exile. Listen to radio or check teletext every five to 10 minutes. When full time finally transpires, look up match report on teletext.
Sunday - wake up any time between 10am and noon depending on last night's activities. Get dressed. Walk to newsagent on corner of street and buy Scottish papers sold there - Sunday Mail and Sunday Post.
Read reports on the stunning inspirational play and Kilmarnock's stylistic match performance. Check the Sunday Posfs crime count, that is, the number of fouls, bookings and sending offs awarded to both teams. Check the Sunday Mail's team of the day - Keep in touch with the scores on the doors as they happen with the good old teleprinter.
It takes you back to the bad old days of Dickie Davis.
Kilmarnock's Neil Whitworth is a permanent fixture - and mentally note which other Killie players are in there. Check rating out of 10 for each player in the Scottish Premier, paying particular attention to Kilmarnock players. Smile as the realisation dawns that European football is just a few matches away. The team’s ready, willing and able.
Normally I wouldn't write such an indulgent introduction to a review, but, due to the structure and design of Super League Manager, the above formula bears more than an uncanny resemblance to the routines needed to master the game.
Natural born manager Rather than overwhelm the gamer with a barrage of statistics and attribute ratings such as those found in Tactical Manager 2 or Premier Manager 3, Super League Manager feels more natural.
Amiga Format gave away a fully working demo last issue (AF69) so that you could see how it played for yourself. So, instead of describing the game, here are a few observations: The most important area to concentrate on is the players themselves. Training can be individually tailored for problem players, set for positional play, or doled out to the whole team.
Good team results are unattainable if you neglect this mechanism. Pay particular attention to the device that emulates the trainer’s comments. It helps immensely when choosing team formations and positions for the match.
The paper that appears on your desk every Sunday after the match is incredibly useful. In fact, it's essential. It keeps you in touch with what's going on in your division and the other divisions, how well your players have played and how well the opposition have done. It's not the Sunday Mail or the Sunday Post (no game could be that good) - Emlyn Hughes’ portrait graces the front cover, yeuch - but it gives you a run-down on every game played and rates the performance of every participating player accordingly.
Certain mechanisms, such as the tea lady and the potted plant, only seem to be there to slow the game down.
However, they can have an adverse effect on the game if you neglect to pay attention. Tedious or detailed? Only you can decide.
WHAT'S ON YOUR DESK?
One of the hints for improved performance stated in the manual is the recording of player performance and ratings on cards I dare say, if I didn't have anything better to do - like hoovering or washing the dishes - then maybe I'd consider setting up a whole load of little cards and taking notes.

PHOTOGRAPH: A picture of your team. Probably.
Big brother But hey, hold on a minute, isn't all this card filling in business uncomfortably close to the computer playing with me rather than me playing with the computer? A disturbing state of affairs.
Why couldn't some routines have been included in the main game to let the player record the data generated on each player on the Amiga? This data could be displayed on a table or something. Expecting the gamer to have a photographic memory or take notes on Tittle cards is a bit silly. It means the gamer is expected to work much harder than strictly necessary Gripes aside. Super League Manager is a compact and bijou little number The inclusion of a cut down version of Emlyn Hughes International Soccer seems idiosyncratic, but it does provide a diversion from out-and-out mouse clicking if you
feel so inclined.

SN13BU. Tel: 0793 490988 Tired of making 'bowled over' puns, Steve Bradley applies himself to the serious business of reviewing King Pin.
It could be right up your alley.
King Pirj uuuuuuuuuu W V W J J J V W W W For those who simply can't face negotiating numerous out-of- town roundabouts to get to the local alley, or indeed, those who are always in the tavern when Roseanne is on television, ten-pin bowling is basically skittles, only the task is that much more arduous, for skittles has but nine pins, not ten.
King Pin runs with the name Arcade Sports Bowling, and after the heady success of their excellent Arcade Pool, it seems that Team 17 are regretting Poofs competitive price of a tenner.
Three extra gold coins required for Look at the pictures. K- pin how,_ King Pin bowls along 7 out of 10 like a good'un, but does . C.ij,.. little else.
Bowling, friends. But no matter, King Pin tackles ten-pin bowling in much the same way as its counterpart did pool, only there are less options, though admittedly, the subject matter somewhat determines the result.
You bowl. Full stop. Apart from the varying matchplay options which allow teams and such like, there is an Arcade Spares Challenge where the computer chucks down pins and you have one ball to topple them, and a practice mode.
You can be male or female, balls range from eight to 16 pounds and, oh God, I'm struggling here.
King Pin - Arcade Sports Bowling GRAPHICS: 7 out of 10 OVERALL VERDICT You'll have to be awfully keen.
PLAYABILITY: 7 out of 10 ADDICTION: 5 out of 10 Executed with some aplomb.
SOUND:_7 out Watch Roseanne on Friday.
A right-handed, green-shined male with the 121b balls. King Pin features a full character profilo for the bowler. It's ten-pin bowling.
Look, it’s ten-pin bowling, the pin movement is smooth enough, you can vary the speed at which you deliver the balls, and you can add aftertouch for those wayward deliveries.
An arrow pings back and forth across the alley and you have to click the button at the right spot to deliver the perfect ball - the more power you put into the delivery, the quicker the arrow moves and the more difficult the shot is.
The Amiga players differ in ability so you can upgrade them as you improve. But as with many sports sims, the more human folk involved, the better.
Strike it lucky So what, dear reader, has King Pin to offer the casual player? Well, to be perfectly candid, not a great deal - if you don't like ten-pin bowling, then you ain't going to be that interested. And sure, it's as well executed a bowling game as there is, though there are some not-quite-as-competent PD games which, nevertheless, can skittles knock over But King Pin simply doesn't have the longevity of Arcade Pool, which, because of the numerous options, holds interest a deal longer.
My only real beef with the game (apart from the fact that it really isn't terribly interesting) is that whenever you turn off the music, which inevitably, you will, the next game you play, lo and behold, the darned tune returns.
Nevertheless, King Pin is without any doubt the only computer game which features a tannoy message asking ex-Af editor Marcus Dyson to 'go to reception, please.'

ST4 2RS. ENGLAND 01782 744707 Aki t sj It could have been packed with fabulous graphics and manga-style characters, instead Steve Bradley gives Akira one of our lowest scores ever.
Stop. Do NOT enter your local computer games store. Danger lurks. Manga cartoons are popular, computer games about manga cartoons are likely to attract the unsuspecting, the gullible, the people who buy games before they've read the review We know a lot of you were stung on Rise Of The Robots - we were helpless, the abomination was on sale before the magazine appeared Akira is on sale. It has been for weeks, cunningly timed to avoid as many magazine deadlines as possible.
Probably. And by now, ICE have sold a few and recouped some development' Akira GRAPHICS: 3 out of 10 OVERALL VERDICT Dull, poor, undistinguished. An eagerly-awaited pile of SOUND: 4 out of 10 unmitigated, dated, shabby tosh. Go home.
ADDICTION: 1 out of 10 What?
PLAYABILITY: 3 out of 10 You can. But you won't.
Cost. One of the games magazines was allegedly told not to review Akira unless they were going to score it 80 per cent or more. Cue belly laughs from the stalls. Eighty per cent? Or was it eight?
Akira is part platform game, part shoot-em-up, part motorcycle ride. Akira is a game which should have appeared on a budget label three years ago, and even then it would have been poor.
Readers, this game has been in ’development' so long, one wonders exactly what the writers have been up to. And surely, in that time, someone must have happened by and suggested that, 'things weren't quite right'.
OK. So you start on a motorcycle It's the Capsule gang against the Clowns (right) and you dribble along streets avoiding fire, jumping craters and hitting cones. The bike is difficult to control, the graphics are poor, you throw the pad at the screen in dismay.
Bad people On other levels you shoot teddy bears, ride a flying sledge, massacre a blob and battle a Scaramangian amount of baddies in a sewer. You really don't want to play this for more than five minutes. Offers to take up the joypad were spurned by colleagues hastily burying their heads in needlecraft mags.
The sprites have no character, the gameplay is shabby enough to warrant execution at the hands of bad people from the other side of the world, who first use torture techniques previously thought improbable. The graphics are faceless, the level design plain dull.
Akira is £30. If you've already bought it, one can only sympathise - and then suggest you should have learned by now not to dash out and buy games without reading AF reviews first.
The shock of loading this up could kill the faint hearted. Ti Shadow Fighter AGA Gremlin 0114 2753423 ¦ £29.99 ¦ A1200 A4000 ¦ Out now AN EARLY BATH FOR THE OPPOSITION!
A quite simply fabulous selection of characters." Says Gerald Hoppington of Ashford, in Kent.
"The Shadow Fighter AGA combatants look like they've just jumped out of a cartoon from the telly," according to Terry Simpkins from Horbury, West Yorks.
"I can't believe the amount of special moves your man can make. It's absolutely phenomenal. As beat-em-ups go, this is really smashing," enthuses Victoria O'Malley of Wexford, Republic of Ireland.
"One can simply indulge in awfully large number of special manoeuvres. I found the whole game frightfully amusing, too," writes Jasper Whittam- Bunter, Moss Side, Manchester.
"Oh ja, clinker von fumpeta fumpeta fumpeta, Shadow Fighter ja, ja," exclaims Johan Johanson of Sweden.
These are just some of the statements I've recently made up.
Shadow Fighter is one of the Amiga's best beat-em-ups - indeed, it's one of the finest on any platform. And now the graphics are even prettier and the game hard disk installable. Good work programmers.
Experience the nail-biting tension of a real manager in revo lutionary interactive animated matches!
Pupazz the demonic dummy is the games finest protagonist and is surely deserving of a platform run-out in the future. You can practice your manoeuvres on the evil little punch bag or type in the secret word and play him in the game.
Pupazz is backed by a huge range of protagonists - some carry basketballs, others wear bandanas similar to the little chap who appears on all the video games programmes.
Details - 16 characters, one and two- player options, 25 moves and more per character, difficulty options and the squeamish can turn off the blood.
Even the people who cross the street to avoid beat-em-ups will enjoy this game. Gj Play it dirty! Rig matches, place bets and offer bungs!
Complete feedback from press, agents, chairman and fans.
See your stadium develop in superb 3D splendour.
WW2Z Pupazz is a demor delight No matter how often you nrike a blow. I he just grins. It's unnerving Tell him to stop Now He'e a bloody weirdo.

RtnrvTrn oat imnri tttt a-i rn a-t aaaa Aaarghh. This month, AMIGA POWER risks everything to bring you ESSENTIAL INFORMATION about Frontier 2: First Entounters. And reviews Skidmarks 2.
With a spring in his step and silver platters under his arm, Steve Bradley spins the disks and records the results.
Will he sing a tune or wail at the wall?
CD32 Games PGA EUROPEAN TOUR Ocean ¦ 0161 832 6633 ¦ £27.99 The finest golf game on the CD32 by a long drive with a three wood. By John Daley. At altitude.
No other golf game can match PGA's simplicity and sheer playability although graphically, one wonders quite why it appeared as AGA-only on floppy disk. But no matter, we quibble, for this is a sports game in which even nonbelievers will partake a round.
You can pick it up in minutes yet the more you play, the better it gets. You can play as a professional or input your Grandmother's name and up to four can play at once. What more could one ask?
Buy it. A moan, though. Surely they could've given us a couple of extra courses - there are five - with all that wonderful CD storage space.
THEME PARK Mindscape ¦ 01444 246333 ¦ £34.99 Look, this is bloody annoying, and a lot of you were probably really looking forward to seeing Theme Park on your machine. The control method. Oh. By the way. This is a god-buiid-a-park-and- do-the-accounts-while-you're-at-it game
- you must have heard about it by now.
The control method is awful. It says in the manual you can use a mouse - you can. Except you can't input figures and letters which obviously makes the mouse redundant. But if you've already decided to use a mouse, then found it unsuitable, deciding instead to insert the joypad. You have to start the game again. Dohl Other than that, it's a straight port of the funsome floppy version. There is a tidy animated sequence at the start (no speech) but you'll only watch it three times. It's good to see that Bullfrog are releasing this high-profile title on CD32 but they really should have looked at
the control method from less than 40 yards.
Continued overleaf * safe job and as your ambitions escalate, plan the big heist in the Tower Of London You spend a lot of time wandering around pubs and places hoping to meet willing accomplices, checking out the 'filth' and casing joints. Robbery planning is a whole lot of fun but for the most part, the rest of the game is rather dull. Speech has been added to this version but it pipes only in parts. For the patient with a penchant for pilfering, The Clue may be worth nicking, or purchasing, as more commonly known, particularly because there are so few of this type for game for the Amiga.
More experienced adventure games players will probably find it limiting.
SKELETON KREW Core Design ¦ 01332 297797 ¦ £34.99 And we were so looking forward to Core Design's Skeleton Krew Wonderful isometric view, fabulous graphics, enormous sprites; it can't fail we thought. We were wrong Yes, it really does look most excellent, the Krew are mighty, robotic beings with bad guns, yet the game is interminably dull because there is so little variety in the gameplay.
You move through the levels and shoot the baddies - not in itself a bad thing but this is ALL YOU DO.
Skeleton Krew is the shoot-em-up follow-up to the bouncing Banshee.
But you really don't know why you're shooting this endless wave of aliens - there is no obvious reward for your hard work, no bonus games or anything. As difficult (for it is), dull shoot-em-ups go, Skeleton Krew is right at the top of the pile. And we were so looking forward to it. Shame on you. Cj THEY'RE COMING AROUND AGAIN FOR A TENNER good. Don’t buy Wild Cup Soccer.
Frankly, it's dire. Brutal Sporta Football (85%), however, is feisty fare, an American football-style game with an arsenal Arsenal would be proud of.
Gore galore. Ten pounds well spent particularly if you have friends.
Platform game you can get for the price on the CD52.
Buy. Buy.
Pond 3(70%) was to most. A couple of mags raved, we stood back and with forefinger and thumb resting on chin, pointed out that it was no great shakes. It ain't bad but if you're going to make a choice, take two.
Global Effect (68%) is an environmental god game, which is not a subject the CD52 is blessed with in abundance. You can create a planet, attempt to save a damaged planet or battle a rival god. Global Ehect is quite ridiculously complex, which rather butts in on the entertainment value. Patient gameplayers may eek a certain amount of satisfaction, but others will probably be both bewildered and frustrated. Shame.
Morph (85%) is a platform puzzle game in the Putty mode, which is a good thing.
Not for frenetic platform rompers, it's more a considered diet of problem solving and the odd bit of joystick wizardry. I said there was no justification for its £35 price tag.

Re-1 leleases _L *i f I H in An Continued overleaf ¦ AWARD WINNERS PLATINUM Empire 0181 343 7337 ¦ £34.99 Lemmings AF20 92% Civilization AF38 94% Frontier: Elite II AF54 90% A mixed bag, indeed. Lemmings, the game that made the Amiga, ahem, what it is today. A fabulously original and playable concept - chances are, you've made your mind up about this game anyway. But for the uninitiated.
Lemmings is point 'n' clickular saving of the tribes fare, and executed with some aplomb ‘tis too. But you've already got it, haven't you? It is four years old.
There's 6,000 years of empire building at your disposal in Sid Meier's Civilization. Commence with a band of settlers, build a city, start an army and in RIGHT: A benchmark of the god genre, Meier's Civilization takes hundreds of years to play.
The winking of an eye, it's hello new order. This, as you might expect, is not a game you can boot-up and casually click around with for half an hour. Oh no. You have to be military general, religious leader, diplomat, Kevin Keegan, Edwina Currie, Orvil... Civilization stands the test of time - it's one of the best examples of the genre. We like.
Space to fly and an abundance of trading opportunities. Weh hey. Frontier Elite II remains an incredibly popular game though many feel it's not up to the original (myself included).
Sure, it is huge but whether you want to expend so much time roving around SPACE HULK Hit Squad 0161 832 6633 AFS2T7% ¦ £14.99 Bang. Bang, and indeed, pop. Pop. The Space Hulks await careful investigation for they hold action and adventure for the player, particularly he who is the Imperial Captain Of The Dark Angel Chapter Of Space Marines.
The premise is this. Large derelict spacecraft (the Hulks) are blockachocka with aliens. Said aliens require removing. How?
You. Big chief, you.control the terminators, cunningly combining strategy and sheer violence.
There are two main screens - one is a first-person perspective of each terminator, the other, a planning screen where you direct operations. The aliens move considerably faster than your chaps dictating that the path to success lies along Strategy Avenue. Freezing the action allows you to oversee the terminators into position before striking
- it’s stop, start, stop, start stuff. Freeze screen, plan move,
execute move, then onward. And Space Hulk looks just fine
- despite its initial complexity, it's strategic fun with the odd
blast.
Doing very little is another matter. Oh, it's not a BAD game, just a bit dull really An odd compilation.

«- STARDUST Daze Marketing 0171 372 7435, AF55 88% ¦ £9.99 The recently released Super Stardust caused a bit of a stir at both AF and sister mag Amiga Power We loved it. In fact we loved its predecessor Stardust first time around but it failed to make an impression on the charts, even at £17.
Well it's a tenner now so there really is no excuse.
Stardust is a ray-traced, parallax scrolling version of arcade classic Asteroids The explosions are visually the best ever, apart from Uncle Super Stardusf s and there are enough levels to keep the most hardened blaster busy.
OK, so it doesn't break boundaries but then why change a formula which ain't broke? Quite tremendous, you'll agree.
B-17 FLYING FORTRESS Powerplus 01276 684959 AF46 91 % ¦ £16.99 The Amiga has a ridiculous amount of flight sims. I really can't keep up with them. What with your F- 15s, your B-17s, your F- 19s, your Knights Of The Skies - it's quite phenomenal. The 8-17 is a 60- year-old Flying Fortress, a plane used to bomb occupied Europe in the Second World War. A muddy funster of a craft.
The B-17's crew of 10 are computer controlled but can jump into any particular role you fancy (left back in Blighty sounds fine, thanks) - you can moves faster.
Included in this little lot is a ground-based simulator, hi-tech hardware galore, a multitude of campaigns and a head-to-head two-player option.
This makes B-17 look like an out- and-out shoot-em-up. If you like life in the slow lane and are prepared to do some serious homework then Tornado could be a revelation. It's technically very impressive but this rather affects the actual enjoyment of flying which is why I prefer the rickety First World War sims. But that's me.
In head-to-head mode, the weaponry is so sophisticated that you don't need to see your opponent to gun TORNADO: The keyboard is the tool of the crack pilot. If you don't know your Mos from your F-19 him down - no chance of dogfighting.
Stealth Bombers, chances are you'll be dead before dawn breaks. Bad news but a spotters delight. Continued overleaf pilot, gun, navigate - you know the sort of thing. Detailed stuff this; certainly not for those that like to get airborn immediately and blast down enemy planes. It's technical, realistic and fun for some members of the family.
TORNADO B-17 FLYING FORTRESS: Remote Birmingham postal codes aside, B-J7is a complex Action Sixteen 01276 684959 Second World War flight simulator. The sort ol thing Microprose always do.
AF56 80% ¦ £16.99 The depth, the realism, how quick the old Amiga is.

Rooieu r ELITE PLUS: David Braben is presently working on
Fluffy The Little Cuddly Tiger, a cute platform game like
Reinbow Islands No, that's wrong. He’s still finishing
Frontier II First Encounters.
[ ' 7 * i X) B 1 L - D c rhis is Rivers a ny are very slow bo TEAM YANKEE: Don’t be put off by the title. You don't have to be coach, you just direct your tanks to the correct field position and look for a touchdown on the other tank's territory. That's right.
IMPACT '95 Audiogenic 0181 424 2244 Not reviewed in AFM £9.99 The disk has 1987 firmly stamped on its plastic. But, we are reliably informed, this is Impact 1995. Featuring the original s 80 levels and a further Ninetiesmungous 48 That's 128 levels maths fans Look, this is Arkanoid. This is fancy Breakout, this is compelling. Unfortunately, you only get five lives and a password after every 10 levels. That's every 10 But fear not for pick-ups are at hand - collect the tokens and buy some decent kit like the extended bat. The fabulous magnetic mat and even the magic word multiball.
Audiogenic have even been kind enough to include a level designer - screens 81 to 148 only, mind and you can chuck in different coloured bricks and designs. Impact is a bit groggy really; it certainly won't change the way you see the world and surely there's many a PD version of Breakout Arkanoid doing the rounds. Still fun, though, + ELITE PLUS Action Sixteen 01276 684959 Not reviewed in AFM £16.99 Elite, Frontier: Elite II and shortly Frontier II: First Encounters. All David Braben, as is Elite Plus, a refined version of Elite with superior graphics and some pretty pictures. Elite Plus is a
space trading game, an old space trading game, but nevertheless, it remains in a class of its own. It isn't bogged down by Frontier's flying-about-for-bloody-ages-with-not-a- great-deal-happening yet it's still huge.
The 3D graphics look just fine and the combination of arcade and strategy opens a multitude of gameplay options. You can trade, building up your fortune in the process, or the daring may wish to engage in the bounty hunting of the erm, bounty hunter. The combat sequences are still better than a lot of more contemporary games and there really is no good reason why you shouldn't buy this. Apart from the fact it's £17.
TEAM YANKEE Action Sixteen 01276 684959 AF16 81% ¦ £14.99 Four and a half years old this.
Pensionable really, in these times of rapid change. But hold on there squire, for we know only too well that old can be gold. Take Pong. Go on. Team Yankee is about team tankees, 16 in all and you have to manoeuvre them to victory, crushing Russians in the process. It's basically a point 'n' click war strategy game, by the way. So how can you control 16 tanks? Well, the game has two modes - either control a four-tank unit in full-screen or control the lot in a four-way split-screen.
Team Yankee looks rather basic - it's getting on a bit, yet age does not diminish the strategic elements of gameplay. Units are moved by selecting the map then clicking on the destination and off they go. Win five battles and promotion is yours. The actual blasting is a mouse-clicking operation, as is turret moving. An ageing classic, though you won't pick it up in minutes.
3URASSIC PARK Hit Squad 0161 832 6633 4F55 73% ¦ £14.99 A viewed-from-the-stand shoot-em-up- cum-adventure, with a first-person perspective 3D section, sounds attractive. And indeed, Jurassic Park uer.
Blue, and cross.
Could've been, but you have to meander interminably, seeking action.
It's a game for The Happy Wanderer. Through parks, along rivers, down roads. You wander. Animals large and small occasionally appear, and you unload a couple of rounds of fire into their midriff before wandering on. Log on to various terminals around the park.
And wander on.
Yes, Jurassic Park is a Nice Game.
Pretty, too. Sumptuous graphics. Yet the same creatures appear time and again - dispatching them becomes irksome. The texture-mapped 3D levels are considerably better; frightening even, with dinos roaming through a maze of underground passages.
This cannot save Jurassic Park from the could've-been-a-lot-better bin. ® CLOANTO Personal Creates Stereograms!

Hundreds of you wrote in with the Fatality, Babality and Friendship moves for MKII. Steve McGill presents them in their full, gory, bone-crunching detail... In AF67, we challenged you to prove how good you are at Mortal Kombat II by sending us a full list of all the Fatality, Friendship and Babality moves. Hundreds of you leapt at the opportunity to describe the atrocities you could commit, often in quite gory detail. OK, so half of you who sent in tips probably read them elsewhere, copied them and then sent them to us (cynical, us?), but for the rest of you beat-em-up fans, here is the
complete list for all the MKII characters.

you can check out the details of each program at a glance. And we've included a PD Selection of the month category. Steve McGill puts together an explosive collection of the brightest and best PD... Select Lovers of the tasteful Athena postcards and posters (there are some) should feel at home with this offering.
In fact, if you imagined TRSI working in conjunction with Robert Maplethorpe and being commissioned by the above retail chain, then it's easy to imagine The Honeycomb as the creative ejaculation of their efforts.
Admittedly, some of the fantasy pictures in here have no discerning characteristics from any other fantasy illustrations. But they are die exception. The other images are either sexy, cheeky, funny, or disturbing.
Mildly recommended.
INDUSTRIAL FUDGE DEMO THE HONEYCOMB SLIDESHOW By _TRSI PD Library_Freestyle PI) No Of Disks_Two Price £1 per disk plus 50p p&p The Honeycomb is a slideshow which you are either going to love or hate.
Many of the images don't so much teeter on the edge of cliche and stereotype but dive fully clothed into the grey, yawn-inducing, endlessly debated world of sexism and ingrained patriarchal male power complexes.
Or something.
By_ Frontier PD Library_MG's PD No Of Disks_One Price 90p per disk plus 7Op p&p Hold the pickles, hold the lettuce, special orders don't upset us. All we ask is that you serve it our way.
Unfortunately. Industrial Fudge serves it up any which way but ours.
Lacklustre and lackadaisical, it makes a laconic lacerated lackey of those who choose to watch it.
It's not technically incompetent or anything, it'sjust not interesting. The Continued overleaf ¦+ DID YOU KNOW?
According to the Amiga Format reader survey results, 80 per cent of you have bought PD software. About 25 per cent of readers buy PD software regularly, 43 per cent buy PD stuff occasionally and 12 per cent of readers have bought just once.
PD Selection of the month JLJL GRAVITY FORCE 2 GAME _ Barf And Mad Lamer . All Good PD Libraries _One By_ PD Library_ No Of Disks_ Price_75p to £1.50 per disk Dexterity, cool, aggression, flying skill and a killer instinct are the main prerequisites needed to survive the death arena that is Gravity Force 2.
Appealing to the competitive ‘bad loser' in us all. Gravity Force 2 places you in the role of a gladiatorial space pilot pitted against a human adversary. There are over 60 combat levels - or arenas - that the battles take place in. The scenery can be shot out or bombed to oblivion. Which is just as well really, because if your spaceship hits said scenery, you die.
To help in your quest for glory, you can kill your opponent by shooting them, ramming them.
Or bombing them. Considering that both the bombs and the shots can be customised - blast area, recoiling shots, weighted shots and penetration of shots - and that almost every parameter to do with the game can be given the same treatment the attention to detail is nothing short of staggering.
And I've left the best bit till last. All of this battling can take place between two machines.
That's right all that's needed is a null-modern lead and you can play the game against fellow Amiga owners. Me and the other Steve use this option to hook up with sister magazine Amiga Power and mercilessly prove our game playing superiority. Top. Top stuff indeed.
If GF2 were to be given a full commercial- style package review, it would earn an Amiga Format Gold. Easily.
GRAVITY FORCE 2: Search 'em out and kill 'em action in full predatory display. Yesterday.

HYPERACE GAME By_Impact Productions PD Library_Freestyle PD No Of Disks_Two Price £1 per disk plus 50p pcsfp I've always thought that the best advertising for the AMOS programming language are the people who use it to produce games.
Assuming that's the case, then Michael Hay of Impact Productions has pulled off a Saatchi And Saatchi-stylc coup with top-down racer. Hy ieRace.
It features four racing cars and six tracks to race on. If required, each of the cars can be- controlled by a human player. There's top racing fun to be had with this with two players on the keyboard and two on joystick.
This one has a nice idea ai the beginning. While waiting for the demo to load, you're presented with an excellent pic of a woman being sucked down a tube into a void.
It turns out it's a journey down the optic chord into the imagination - a five-star sensory overload guaranteed to snap anyone's neural cortex into a misfiring, altered perception of refracted, scrolling texture-mapped imaging. Or something.
The real-time journey through this displaced imaginative wilderness Continued overleaf * TOOTHBRUSH 3 DEMO By_Dreamdealers Cryptobumers PD Library _Online PD No Of Disks_Two Price_75p per disk plus 75p pisfp At last! A demo with a theme, humour, and music that relates to and interacts with the visuals.
Based around some top toothbrush trickery and tomfoolery. Toothbrush 3 is a video-style demo. I don't mind admitting that this style rates among my favourite viewing material when sifting through the multitude of disks that deposit their cyber-ether in Amiga Formats office.
The main problem with Toothbrush 3 is the lack of variety after the initial impact, it's the equivalent of the same note being struck on a gong for the whole two and a half minutes that it lasts - monotonous.
Despite that let's hope the chaps behind the production release more demos of Toothbrush 3“s quality. Who knows, maybe they can produce a similar style of video narrative with the same impact as Mina Omistan from The Movement.
Go to it lads.
TOOTHBRUSH 3 This displays plenty of creative talent using a very simple idea. Keep it up!
Unfortunately, there are a couple of flaws which need ironing out. Firstly, the cars don't have much inertia.
Therefore, as soon as you take vour finger off of the throttle, they stop almost immediately. So there's no power drifts and fancy steering to help you negotiate some of the trickiest and tightest bends.
And to compound matters, sometimes the computer cars get stuck on sections of the course. Considering that the race won't finish until all four of the cars have crossed the line, this can be rather annoving - there's no way of escaping out of the game other than rebooting.
Nevertheless. Hyperacr is top PD fun and I have no qualms about recommending it.

Hvpomanic imbalance duly achieved, it has to be admitted that after a couple of optic sensor retina scans (He means llial he watched the demo three times - Fd) this production grows on you.
Prey offers a cornucopia of swirling colours and shapes. If you've ever seen those advertisements for ihe electronic boxes that flash lights into your eyes and allegedly aid meditation, then forget about them. Get hold of a copy of Prey instead.
You see, Prey is a lot cheaper and it will probably do you much more good in the long run. Trance-like states are possible to achieve with it, but only if you let yourself float in an uninhibited twilight dream state.
Inspires the games reviewer in me.
These guv's - Gengis, Claw .. Trajan.
Zcbig. Suny, and Hof - should be working on a Doom-stylc application.
The scrolling is smooth and accomplished, pretty much what you would expect of a demo called Motion.
The music is similar to most PD offerings although it does have a film noire French thriller quality about it.
PREY (AGA) DEMO By Double Star Freestyle PD _Two BODYSHOP 8 (AGA) SLIDESHOW By_Deck The Goodwin PD Library_Ground Zero Software No Of Disks_Three Price £1 per disk, plus 75p pisfp So where do you stand on the issue of slideshows full of glamorously alluring women? I'll nail my colours to the wall and say that 1 like taking time out for the occasional once-over. The more tastefully teasing the pictures, the better, as far as I'm concerned.
Anyway, Bodyshop S is apparently going to be the last in the flesh and fetish collection of high-qualilv, scanned-in, feminine-based AGA graphics. .As Deck The Goodwin pointed out in his letter accompanying the disk, these scans show the AGA chip set at its best.
Those of you into slideshows of women should find that they're much better served by magazines like Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire and Kile.
PD Library_ No Of Disks_ Price 75 ) per disk plus 75p piPp Being a massive fan of cartoons, it was with delight that I slipped this disk into the drive. There are 21 screens of black and white drawings of assorted Tiny Toons characters in various action poses and live full screens of colour art.
The colour screens on the disk aren't much cop. But the black and white drawings would be very useful for anyone producing fan ines.
Magazines, flyers or titles on video and so on.
Clip an used intelligently is always capable of brightening up any output, and if you want to give whatever you're doing a little pizzazz and a zany theme, check out Tiny Toons.
TINY TOONS CUP ART By _ David Heame Online PD _One VIDEOGEN UTILITY By_Derek Brockhouse PD Library Ground Zero Software No Of Disks_Two Price £1 per disk, plus 7 p pipp There's no denying that the presentation of domestic video footage can be spruced up and made more impressive bv adding titles to the production.
A total of 12 images grace this disk.
No doubt, someone somewhere will find them useful. They're PD in the sense that anyone can copy the disk and distribute it. If you do find the images useful then you should register with Derek and pay him a fiver.
.And that's where the problem with this disk arises. Although a fiver isn't all that much money, in plain truth, the qualitv of the images, despite working on any 1Mb machine, don't make 17deogrn worth buying.
Nevertheless, there are some video utilities worth more of a look than this.

Final Calc's name siiKKt‘sts lwo things. First that it comes
from Softwood, who also produce Final Copy and Final W'nler,
and also that it is some sort of spreadsheet. What it doesn't
tell you is just how ama ing this software is. In many respects
it is more powerful than I Ml us 1-2-3, the preferred
spreadsheet for professional users.
Final Calc is simply years ahead of any other Amiga spreadsheet. It has all the usual goodies (full Allexxsupport, context- sensitive help, adjustable screen modes) but combines them with an overwhelming range of powerful functions such as regression analysis. PostScript font CuK.i, Twito i) r .ur. im 11»_ ipo-.i & * ! 1 I ::!
Standard spreadsheet fare, but Final Calc's advanced features make it easier to create.
Support, a problem-solving tool, a macro recorder, background recalc, customisablc printouts and graphs - you can even save successive graphs as an animation.
The system requirements may be a bit tough, you will need Smb RAM and Workbench 3.0 at least, but this is simply the most powerful mathematical tool you will find on the Amiga.
One of the best things about the Final Calc software, is that it is highly configurable to your needs. Don't worry what sort of tables, printouts or graphs you need, this package can do it all. Final Calc should be out soon, read the definitive review in Amiga Formal... O “iF-VT'a-Vy ¦ 18 MM A fantastically powerful spreadsheet.

For this reason, it's inadvisable to expect the Nakamichi to re- sclect discs. It will work, but very slowly - you can't imagine how slowly. Don’t try’ to access more than one disc at once.
This can also cause problems when booting up because AmigaDOS likes to mount all its devices. So if you use all the CD drives, you may find your machine takes a long time lo boot because Workbench asks all the discs to identify themselves, and the poor CD unit has to shuffle between them.

ACCESSIBILITY • • • • Apart from the set-up problems, and the slight delay when swapping discs, it's just like having seven drives.
Automount them at boot-up, but mount them manually when required.
The accompanying disc includes some useful utilities for managing the thousands of huge icons which will be trampling over your Workbench screen (OK, so Cds are very big, but do they really need HUGE icons?). The only real problem with the drive is the time it takes to change Cds.
And the confusion Workbench can suffer.
This is usually only in the early mounting stage, so it's excusable if you want to use the unit as a server or with a BBS system.

Broadcast Can the new offering from Power Computing really
challenge the GVP G-Loc for top spot in the genlock stakes?
Steve McGill finds out.
MAIN: Surrounded by a sturdy full-metal jacket, the Maxigen 2 looks impressive. It also uses the BNC sockets that professionals allegedly prefer. Add to this the picture correction ability and you're looking at a top spec genlock.
INSET: With RGB Pass-thru, limited transcoding. RGB video correction and S-Connectors. The Maxigen 2 will slip into most DTV set ups with minimum hassle.
Most genlocks are capable of outputting a mixed Amiga graphic and video signal without any problems.
Viewed on a television or monitor, the signals generally range from good to excellent and could easily lull the unwary into a false sense of security about what they're purchasing.
NsujTROnic MAXIGEN II comnots VIDEO IN VSVNC ...... f r You see, monitors and televisions have proc-atnps and pre-amps that tweak and generally iron out any deficiencies in a picture signal before the viewer gets to see the original product. And that would be fine if the same picture sharpening and phase correction happened while recording these picture signals to tape.
Unfortunately, video deck circuitry being what it is, this doesn't happen.
The quality of recording depends on the integrity of the initial signal being output by the genlock. The I tetter the quality of the video deck being recorded on to, the more it will show up any deficiencies in the genlocked signal.
There are several means available to minimise this phenomenon - Time-Base Correction Iteing the ideal w-av of solving most problems. But this is an expensive solution that realistically speaking is only considered by pros and semi-pros. Other methods open are the use of sync-pulse restoration units and colour correctors.
These can be picked up for around £70.
They're a worthwhile investment for those of us on a reasonably tight budget.
MAXIGEN 2 BROADCAST Better still though, is if the genlock itself offers the ability to tweak its output.
The Maxigen 2 Broadcast does exacdy that, albeit in a cnidish and slightly offputting form. On the black anodysed aluminium front panel, there are six miniature screw heads. These take care of the video signal and you can add or subtract more red, green, or blue and tweak the vertical and horizontal sync.
MAXIGEN FEATURES RGB Thru port Y C or Composite input and output RGB signal.
Correction on video signal and Amiga graphics, Saturation control, Full travel rotary picture fader.
Inverse key, Video-thru.
Genlocked signal selector, V-Sync corrector.
Shielded case.
What's more, on the rear of the unit, there are another three screws which let you adjust the intensity of the Amiga ROB signal. This is particularly handy for fine tuning the output of the genlock to the tolerance of the head in your video recorder. Bleeding, over saturated colours can be minimised and reduced.
VDCO XIV • r r ¦IVCftSC MOGA i r CULUr, FADE AMIGA But these adjustments have to l e made manually using miniature screwdrivers, whereas OYP's G-Loc lets you adjust these parameters from a software panel. This is much more flexible and means that settings can be saved to disk or RAM and called upon when needed.
For example, say you hadn't taken a white balance with a camcorder and went on to film daylight scenes. Everything filmed would have a blue tinge to it. Easy, adjust the blue levels and balance them out with the red and green levels. It's not Power Computing 01234 273000 PRICE £299.95 SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS Any Amiga IMAGE QUALITY • • • • Up there with GVP's G-Loc. The ability to use phase and colour correction is a real boon.
MANUAL No manual was supplied with the review copy of Maxigen 2.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • • Easy to set up and use. Well labelled.
Set of jewellers’ screwdrivers required to adjust signal output.
IN'dXlGEW 11 perfect, but it'll look better than the original uncorrccted picture. Changing back to normal picture footage with the Maxigen 2 means more fiddling with screwdrivers. A time-consuming affair that could have been avoided.
Due to this, it's really very hard to recommend the Maxigeti 2, especially when you consider that it's directly up against GVP's GT.oc. The option of software control, limited video switching, transcoding, and audio mixing make the G-Loc the out-and-out winner. O Plentiful and helpful features. Could have been better implemented under software control.
VALUE • • • Reasonable but not good. Looks under specified when compared directly to GVP's G-Loc.
“Certainly a candidate for best Hi-Band genlock on the market. Facilities could have been better utilised.” 79% On the face of it the Microgen Plus genlock appears to be packed with features. But is it all that it seems? We asked Steve McGill.
Tin- following is a direct quote from the Introduction To The Microgm Genlock manual: "Ceremony for have acquired Microgen, the Genlock for all the line of personal Amiga computer, this genlock offers excellent throughputs to a contained price, in fact, united she to your Amiga allows you to register in normal videotape all the graphics and animation of your computer."
JUIicrogen Plus Now. This isn't meant as a cheap joke, but surely such a laughable translation deserves mockery and scorn poured upon it from a great height. What are you supposed to do if you’re a beginner and are relying on the manual lo help you connect the Microgen Plus to the Amiga and the rest of your video equipment?
My main concern lies with the impression this gives to the unsuspecting buyer. Firstly, they'll open the box, find a cheap-looking lump of plastic (the Microgen Plus) packaged together with a
231) femalc-to-malc connnector and a llimsy piece of paper which
is the user's poorly translated manual.
It's a shame i eally. Because in terms of features and potential benefits to the home DTV'cr. The Microgen Plus has a lot going for it: it caters for Hi-Band video signals, both S-VHS and Hi-8, and standard composite video. It doesn't transcode between the different signals, but at this price you shouldn't expect it to.
Other goodies include an RGB pass- thru which means you can feed two separate monitors. This makes it easier to work with art packages and the like, and also lets you get used to the differences between RGB and video output. And that's the sockets on the rear taken care of.
MICROGEN PLUS The front panel sports two single-pole toggle switches, a green I.F.D power light and a rotary fader. The first of the toggles has a treble-tluow mechanism. In the central position it acts as a straight video pass-thru - handy for checking the integrity of the video signal. The upper position outputs Amiga graphics only - useful for recording titles and graphics that don't require live video. The last £180 Is a good price for « genlock capable of delivering Hi-Band video signals. Sadly, the Microgen Plus isn't of a high enough quality to make it worthwhile.
35mfife.
Position docs the genlocking. That is, all instances of colour zero are transparent to the incoming video signal. All other colours arc superimposed on the picture.
The other toggle switch inverts the output so that all instances of colour, other than colour zero, become transparent.
More commonly known as kevholing. It comes in useful for all the most elicited uses of a genlock such its sniper sight effects, binoculars and telescopes. Lastly, there’s the rotary fader. I .ike most genlocks in this price bracket, the fading range is limited. Pity.
So. On the features front, things look reasonably good. But in use. It's a different story. Use of the toggle switches leads to all kinds of problems - the complete loss ol DISTRIBUTOR Power Computing 01234 -273000 PRICE £179.95 SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS Any Amiga IMAGE QUALITY • • Can't be trusted to constantly output a stable signal. Using the toggle switches leads to problems.
MANUAL • More of a hindrance than a help. More money should have been spent on a good translation.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • Easy enough to set up without the use of the manual. Absolute beginners may have problems though.
Sync being by far the most annoying. But almost as bad is the sporadic hiss of colour and the inability of the Microgen Plus to handle extreme overscan effectively - the left-hand side of the Amiga screen overlaps the video picture, and there's a constant jitter on the upper left-hand section of the screen. What's more, the plastic casing affords negligible shielding, inevitably leading to cross interference from other equipment in a DTV set-up.
The specs of the Microgen Plus look good on paper, but in the real world, despite theY C connections, the output is poor and lacklustre. The loss of sync is unforgivable. In this price range there arc- better value genlocks than the Microgen Plus available. 'Z) FEATURES • • • • It's got all the features that an ambitious up and coming movie maker could want.
VALUE • • Despite the availability of Hi-Band video, there are better value, better quality genlocks on the market.

But in order for it to be worthwhile, both sides of the unit's capabilities should be faultless and not compromised by the
other. Videon could be better.
NeuiTRonic Like Newtronic's Microgen Plus genlock, the spec of the Videon video digitiser and stereo sampler looks good. It grabs video signals from composite, or Y C I li- Band. Video sources in all resolutions (memory permitting) and colours-a boon in the flexibility stakes. Not only that, but it also doubles as a stereo sound sampler with a potential sampling rate of up lo 59KI t - but there is no sound sampling software included.
The promise of playing with a new video digitiser and stereo sampler had Steve McGill champing at the bit. But he was sorely disappointed... Strangely though, I'enonal Paint 6.1 from (loanto is bundled with the package.
And as a quick aside, it's worth mentioning that the interpretation of the Personal Paint manual is infinitely superior to that of the Videon manual.
But it's odd that a paint package has been bundled as an extra when sampling software has been excluded - it should have been included as standard. The manual recommends use of Audiomaster 2.
An odd recommendation considering that the later A udiomaster 4 is no longer available and won't work with A1200s. It doesn't instill confidence.
Neither does the build of the unit or the quality of the components used. For example, the case is made up of a flimsilv- built piece of bendy plastic. The potentiometers that control the input levels of the sound and picture are bog standard 47Kilo Ohm - the son you could buy anywhere at lOp a dozen, with discounts available on bulk purchases.
Of course, the design of the unit wouldn't matter if it delivered good- quality, faultless grabs. You only have to look at the casing of the Rotnbo scries of Vidi digitisers to see that external design aesthetics make no difference to the functional capability of the unit. They don't look great, but they deliver the goods where it counts - grab quality and image processing functions.
Sadly, the video grabs that Amiga Format managed to take with the Videon were very poor, verging on abysmal.
Incidentally, our source was fauldess. We tried live grabs direct from a Panasonic MS95B SA'IIS camcorder. This let us grab composite and Y C signals. Damningly.
There was no discernable difference between either type of grab.
The quality of grabs from running videotape witnessed a further degradation Continued overleaf 4 4* of die signal. Considering dial the video tape used was a Fuji S-VI IS Pro. The result was worrying.
For. Unlike the Vidi 12 RT. setting up the contrast, brightness and saturation of the incoming signal is as east' as llickitig a switch on the front panel. This acts as a pass through which, curiously, transcodes the incoming video signal into an RC.B signal. This signal is displayed on your monitor (assuming you're using a Philips CM8833. 1084 or similar) and can he adjusted using the contrast, brightness and saturation controls on the Videon unit itself.
IA 3 0 5 HI A When the picture obtained is satisfactory, it's just a matter of deciding what resolution and screen mode is going to he used for the grab and then clicking on a button.
The speed of the grabbing is reasonable, but the time it takes for the software to assemble a lull-colour picture is
• •Thumbs down for this unit. It deserves to be labelled Jack of
all trades and master of none."
A trifle pedestrian to say the least. The wait time in itself wouldn't be bad if the grab delivered was of a decent quality. But it isn't. Not once did we manage to take a decent, unspoiled grab.
The same can be said for the quality of sound samples taken with this unit. They tend to suffer from too much ringing.
Samples were taken from several sources - camcorder, voice recorder and a 60(1 Ohm microphone. All sources resulted in similar interference that couldn't be put down to anything other than the Vtdeon unit itself.
So. It's a big thumbs down for this unit. By trying to be all-encompassing in the sound and video department, it deserves to be labelled as a Jack of all trades and master of none.
If you're in the market for a sound sampler, go for Megalosound or Technosound Turlio 2. Both of these standalone samplers come bundled with software which means that they can be used for sampling as soon as you gel them home. Plus, the quality of sampling is much better.
VIDEON DIGITISER Videon makes allowance tor just about any input be it a Hi-Band video source, microphone, tape recorder or video recorder.
Likewise, if you're sniffing around for a video grabber, go for either the Vidi 12 or Vidi 12RT. Quite frankly, Videon isn't worth consideration unless you’re desperate for Personal Paint.

Trying to grab anything other than a still pic from a video camera leads to poor quality results.
MANUAL Atrocious. It would have been easier to interpret the manual from the original Italian than it would to understand this pidgin English.
ACCESSIBILITY 91* If you don't need to rely on the manual, the software is easy to understand and use.
FEATURES •••• Lots of features that could have been incredibly handy for a serious DTV'er.
VALUE • • Not worth the asking money. If you have £140 spare, look elsewhere.

COMMUNICATOR III The Communicator III unit and lead, Amiga, and
CDJJ software.
This is the message page where you can type text messages on your remote Amiga and have them displayed on the CD”*s screen.
There are also a variety of effects To 5 choose from.
I* l"S* E3 a As a multimedia delivery platform, the CD*2 reigns supreme. No other system provides as much power and as many features for the price. I iowevcr. Even CD32 can be improved upon, and several hardware developers have produced expansion units to use the CD32's capabilities more fully.
Communicator, however, has a different agenda, while it gives CD32 owners access to a keyboard and MIDI ports, its main aim is to link a CD32 to other models of the Amiga. It goes beyond even that - thanks to its multimedia support you can produce high-quality multimedia presentations.
(Communicator III has support for more multimedia programs, an improved hardware interface and a new Virtual (!I) feature which enables you to set a bootup mode that's retained even when the machine is off. It has fallen in price from £ 170 to £69 for the standard version and £49 for Communicator I Me (no MIDI ports).

and 2Mb Chip RAM recommended) speed e e e • Considering the
package uses the serial port, some respectable transfer rates
can be achieved.
Manual e e e Not horrendous, but sketchy in places.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • • • Simplicity itself - just plug it in and run the Commsbook.
The unit slots into the auxiliary port on the left-hand side of your CD32 and (ionmu mentor establishes a link between your machines by means of a lead that connects to your Amiga's serial port.
(ionmunirutor adds five new sockets to your CD32: MIDI In. MIDI Out. MIDI Thru. A4000 keyboard and A2000 keyboard. The ability to add a keyboard is a useful feature because it enhances the machine's level of interactivity. For o
p. .a: |Q Run example, you can enter text - handy if you want to
use AmigaDOSon the CD32.
The software comes on CD-ROM for the CD32 and on floppv for your Amiga.
The programs include: Twin Txfrrns. Srmet.
Mainvirw, V'irwlrk. Photol.ite and the Commsbook. Installing them is simply a matter of running the installation script.
The Comm.slmok. which is made up of five sections or pages, is the main program used to communicate between machines and control the activities of the CD32.
The Message page can be used lo overlay text input on your Amiga over the current display on the CD32. The Files page is where you do all your copying from the CD32 to your Amiga. Selecting a file is basically the same as using Workbench's default file-t equestcrs. The View page enables you to copy across pictures and animations to the CD32's memory, where they can be displayed in full AGA-modes.
The CD page operates in a similar way to a normal (.D player, but as well as playing audio Cds you can also plav MPEG files such as movies. To change the transfer rate, you use die Settings page, which can also be used to set the default download directory.
However, the real power of Communicator is realised when you use it in conjunction with a multimedia program.
The package has support for Scala and Mcrlia mint. When used with either of these programs the CD32 becomes a host unit - displaying sound and animations, including MPEG and audio tracks.
Communicator is a powerful tool for people who want to exploit the CI)32's multimedia abilities. Version benefits from improved build-quality and some handy software refinements. Ch FEATURES • • • • Although not primarily an expansion unit it would have been nice to have had a floppy drive port.
VALUE • • • • £69 for the full-version and £49 for Communicator Lite is a far more realistic price than the £170 previously being asked.

For a full review of this, see .4 69. but suffice to say that it's a small black box which plugs into the PCMCIA port and a thick cable with a
standard amphenol-style plug on the end.
What! Surely not another CD-ROM drive for the A1200 and A600?
Richard Baguley investigates.
The CD-ROM drive itself is a basically a bog-standard double-speed SCSI mechanism manufactured by Sanyo, encased in a pretty tough-looking metal case. At the rear of the unit are the two SCSI ports, so you can connect other units to form a SCSI chain.
Because mans CD52 titles use CD audio as well as Amiga-generated audio, you need to be able to mix both sets of sounds.
The CD52 has circuitry built in to do this, but the Power unit does it by routing the Amiga's sound through the CD-ROM unit and mixing it with the CD audio at the same time. It means you have quite a few cables floating around and cluttering up the place, but it does work.
Because of the wav the system operates, you can't boot up off a SCSI unit attached to it. Instead, you can either boot up from your internal hard disk or create a special floppy which transfers control over to the hard disk and sets the rest of the boot process going. This isn't a real problem - if you want to use the CD-ROM drive you are going to need a hard disk anyway.
One of the main selling points of a unit like this is that it can emulate a CD”, so you can use it to play all those lovely CD** games while still maintaining the flexibility of the A1200.
POWER CD-ROM Because it's not possible to boot up directlv from anv device on the SCSI bus.
The installation program can be used to create a special bootable floppy- which sets up the system and hands control over to the CD-ROM drive.
Some clever programming and other jiggery pokcry is used to emulate the special chips which are present in the CD but not in the A1200. This system works fairly well, but it did fall down on a number of CD*2 titles, such as The Chaos Engine and Beneath A Steel Sky.
Some CD11’ games use very weird tricks to get the most out of the machine, and it is unlikelv that these will work. Power Computing are aware of problems with some games, and the emulation has provision for configuration files which allow specific games to work.
A few of these are included with the unit and HiSofl are continually working on improving compatibility. If you want to DISTRIBUTOR Power Computing 01234 273000 PRICE £199.95 SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS A1200 or A600 SPEED • • There are faster CD-ROM drives bu t this is certainly no slouch.
MANUAL • • Reasonably good, although some details are misssing.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • All very easy to set up. No fiddling really necessary.
Check about a specific game, you should give Power Computing a ting on the number below because new fixes are being created all the time. It's worth pointing out that the Squirrel already works with many discs that the Zappo CI) drive has problems with.
Some other games (such as Tower Assault and Microcosm) worked, but the fancy graphic intros had a few problems, with some jumps in the Microcosm and slightly corrupted sound in Touer Assault.
Otherwise, the games played fine.
Apart from these few problems, the emulation seemed pretty good. All of the games which worked 011 the Power CD seemed to play just as well as they do on a CD*2, although you don't have all of the controller buttons (unless you beg. Borrower steal a CD** controller). 'Zi FEATURES • • • • An extremely good combination of SCSI interface and CD-ROM drive that should be a popular choice.
VALUE • • • • The Power package is particularly good value when you consider you are getting both a CD-ROM drive and a SCSI interface.

Qstore Vid eo Df C 18 Are you lacking colour in your life? Richard Baguley investigates a new graphics add-on for non-AGA Amigas.
Colours are rather like bottles of whiskey - the more the merrier.
If you're into rayiracing or the like this is especially true. After all, if your graphics program generates images in 16 million colours, it's a pain hating to view them in just 4.096 colours.
Commodore produced their answer to this dilemma in the form of the AGA chip set which formed the heart of the A1200.
This could display images in up to 262.000 colours through a new version of the Amiga's HAM (Hold And Modify) mode.
It's not quite 24-bit colour, but it's damn close and the files arc a lot smaller.
Where did this leave those with non- AGA machines? If you had an Amiga which bad Zorro slots fitted, you could invest in a 24-bit graphics card such as the Picasso II or PCS Sfmlmm and if you had an A500 (which has no Zorro slots), you could get hold of a X.' Vfrom Digital Creations.
The DCTVis a clever device which fits between the video port and the monitor. It achieves the spectacular feat of being able to display images at more colours than the Amiga's hardware would allow, by putting information into the top-right corner of the image which the DCIYunn then decodes and uses to produce the image.
The Video DAC 18 works in a similar way. It's a small black box which plugs into the video port of your machine. The video cable plugs into the rear of this and passes through the video signal. When you show an image in the special DAC formal, the unit kicks in and decodes the image to give you 262,144 colours 011 screen.
Because the video image is not altered as it is passes through the unit, it should still he usable with video peripherals such as genlocks. Even when you're showing a DAC image, this should be possible.
Images which are to be displayed 011 the Video DAP have to be processed into a special format, and this is achieved with the software on the accompanying disk.
This software works reasonably well, but it is pretty basic and there is no hint of such useful features as an Altexx interface. It's the only way to convert images into this special format, so you're stuck with it.
It does the job. But it would have been useful to provide an Art Defiartmenl Professional ssr ImageFX driver. It’s also unstable - it crashed three times on me while being tested.
DISTRIBUTOR Power Computing Ltd (01234) 273000 PRICE £39.95 SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS WB 1.3 or above, 1Mb of memory IMAGE QUALITY • • • Many images displayed serious fringing but were otherwise good.
MANUAL • • Minimal and badly translated. More detail on the utilities on the disk would have been extremely welcome.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • Relatively easy to use, although the reliance on the programs which accompany the program is irritating.
The quality of the images is good, although they suffer from some pretty serious fringing, and the viewing program included with the unit doesn't suppress the mouse pointer, which causes even more fringing 011 screen as it moves about.
The software is also restricted to working with 24-bit IFF images which must be either 320 or 384 pixels wide. It can't rope with common formats such as JPEGs and it refuses to deal with any images of resolutions other than this. This is more of an inconvenience than a problem, but the resolution restrictions are limiting.
The manual is a pretty minimal affair on two sheets of A4. It's badlv written and appallingly translated from the Italian original. Although some of the basic information is there. It's unimpressive.
This is a curious product. It allows you to get much closer 10 the sort of quality you would expect from a 24-bit card at a very low price, but it's obvious that many things base been cut back to keep the cost down. The unit looks thrown together and the software is poor and unstable.
Although it displays images in a mode equivalent to HAM-8, the problems raise serious questions about whether it would lie useful in the long run. Or whether you'd be better off picking up a secondhand IHTTY or a second-hand A1200. O FEATURES • • • It works in a range of resolutions and is accompanied by a vital set of utility programs.
VALUE • • • Cheap, but many serious corners have been cut to achieve the price.

Whoa there. Are we all suffering from some kind of .Y-Fi rs-esque collective deja- vu experience? Did we not see a review of the self-same objects about a year ago in Amiga Format} Well, almost, but not quite. A similar set of objects were reviewed for use with Imagine. These have now been dusted off.
Tweaked a bit, given more attributes and converted to Lightwave formal.
Is this collection - which features seats, a counter, salt and pepper shakers, plates, cups, stools, a payphonc, the best jukebox you've ever seen, a menu, some doughnuts and even a toilet - just for people who don't know one end of the modeller from the other? Well, no. It would he useful for those people, but it's also useful if you just need new, high-qualitv models in a hurry .
The models have all been optimised to just the right level, unless you want extreme close-up. Some of them exist in a lo-res variety as well, which is useful if you need to save memory - the jukebox alone is over 400K, if you take into account all the images which need to Ik- mapped on lo it. The rest of the objects average out at around 50K. Which isn't too bad, but any useful scene will probably have at least 10 objects in it, so you need more than a few bytes free after loading Lightwave.
The quality of modelling is high. The objects not only look realistic, but they are also no more complicated than they have to be - this is the real trick to a successful .ID career - especially if you want your excellent images to render in your lifetime. It is a question of appropriate detail - whether or not it really matters if your cutlery has a silver mark on it or not, given that you are never going to see it.
Some detail, particularly on the jukebox, has been taken care of with IFF maps. This may increase overall object size, but can, in most circumstances, reduce rendering time (particularly if the object has shadow mapping or any degree of specularity) because they dramatically reduce the number of polygons required.
DINER OBJECTS VOLUME ONE This is obviously a diner just before the health inspector comes around - It's spotlessly clean.
The objects set also comes with example scenes from the diner, which are well thought out.
It is not for Amiga Format to debate whether you should use these objects rather than create vour own. If you were making a film and vou needed a 30 second sequence in a diner, it would be much easier to pav location fees than go to the trouble of constructing your own set. Let the argument end there. Even if vou don't use these objects for anvthing in particular, they do have an educational value, because they arc fine examples of how to create models. Very fine. O DISTRIBUTOR RAMIGA 01690 770304 PRICE £54.95 inc VAT SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS Lightwave SPEED • • • • In terms of how efficiently
these objects are made, they render quickly.
MANUAL • •• A fairly brief introduction, but then there is little to explain. Perhaps the surfaces used could have been explained more.
FEATURES • • • • • Well-tooled objects, with excellent use of custom surfaces to create extremely realistic images.
VALUE • • • • In terms of how long it would take you to create them, these objects are very cheap.
“Expertly crafted and beautifully detailed objects for you to treasure, use or rip off.” ¦o 73 ACCESSIBILITY • • • The objects are logically ordered and stored, although the installation is a little haphazard.

AGA PAGESTREAM In a recent Amiga Format piece on DTP (AF63) the writer mentioned that PageStream 2.2 could be made to use 256 colours on an AGA-based .Amiga. For the benefit of beginners like myself who cannot afford documentation that should have been supplied with the A1200 instead of some third-rate games, would you be good enough to explain in some detail how to make PageStream 2.2 recognise the graphic talents of my A1200?
Alan Pywell.
Saltfleet, Lines In order to use 256 colours, you must have PagrStrram 2.22 m. least. If you're still running an older version then simply contact Soft-Logic and they'll happily send you a free update.
Alternatively, Comms fans will be pleased to know that the update is also available for download on a number of Bulletin Boards includingOI For Amiga on 0171 377 1358.
I am a proud owner of an A500 Plus with 1Mb of extra RAM and a second disk drive. I would like to buy a hard drive and would therefore like your advice on which one you think would be the best VIDEO STAR Once you've obtained the upgrade, all you have to do is to edit the PageStream tool types and add the line Golors=256 (note the American spelling). Unfortunately, this patch still only shows bitmaps as greyscale representations - if you want to take advantage of full AGA colour. YouTI have to upgrade to PagrStrram 3.0. FLASH, BANG, WALLOP!
I have an Amiga 1200 with a 40Mb hard drive an Amitck 2Mb RAM expansion and 33MHz FPL'. I used to have a TV connected via the modulator until the colour started to fade, flash and do all sorts of funny things. I purchased a Philips monitor thinking this would solve my problem. To my horror it hasn't although the fading and flashing isn't as noticeable as it used to be. Can you please tell me what I should do?
Micheal O'Donaghuc.
Counts Monaghan. Ireland When your screen starts to flash. I think you can safely assume that your Amiga isn’t working quite how it should be. Before you go any further, it may be worth unplugging your .Amitck RAM board.
.Although it's unlikelv that this is what is causing the problem, it's not unheard of. Failing that, the problem lies with your AI200 itself. I'm afraid all you can do is to take it along to a shop that carries out repairs on Amigas.
WAX MUSICAL I'm haring problems assigning synth sounds from my Roland EI6 synth to the 16 channels in the Music-X monitor. I’ve worked through all the Continued overleaf 4 for me to buy for under £500 (I also want as much extra RAM as possible with it). I am planning to use my Amiga to make music videos (written by a friend in OctaMED). Would I be better off getting a different Amiga or could I make decent videos using my A500 Plus, a camcorder and a genlock?
Dan. Lancashire Buying a hard drive for an A500 Plus isn't as easy as it used to be because most hardware manufacturers have moved on to the A1200. However. Power Computing recently launched an A500 Plus hard drive manufactured by Mtec the German behind the Viper range of A1200 accelerators. It can either be bought with a 360Mb drive for £259.95 or you can buy it bare (and add your own 3.5-inch IDE drive) for £99.95. Power can be contacted on 01234 273000.
Don't assume that because your A500 Plus hasn't got the latest graphics chips that it isn't man enough for desktop video. Before the advent of the AGA chip set, the A500 Plus was considered state-of-the-art. Buy a genlock and have fun with your machine!
IF YOU HAVE A QUERY... At Amiga Format we aim to answer as many questions as possible, and attempt to sort out all of your problems.
Of course, there are always more questions than answers, so we prioritise queries according to the following factors:
• 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.
IMAGINE THERE'S NO PROBLEM Can you please help me with a problem that I have been trying to solve. I have an Amiga 600 with 2Mb of Chip RAM. A few months ago I obtained your Imagine 2.0 Coverdisk from a friend but I've since encountered several problems using it. For starters, I have been trying to save rendered pictures so that I can load them into Dpaint IV. I have quick rendered them but I don't seem to be able to save them to disk - the rendered image appears, I press the left mouse button and I’m back to the Detail Editor.
I've tried the animation tool but I can't get it to work. I go to the Stage Editor, load my object, enter the number of frames and then I move the object using the Mov button. I then go to the next frame and Mov the object again. When all the frames have been set up, I go to the animation screen, press the Play button but nothing happens. What's going on?

J C. Walsh.
Cork. Ireland Assigning synth patches to MIDI channels is quite difficult in .11n.w-.Vbecause the program doesn't provide a quick and easy method of changing the sound which is played over a particular Music-X channel. What you have to do is to manually insert Program Change events that tell your synth what patches to play on w hat channels.
The easiest method is to set aside a track which holds nothing more than Program Change events. These events are inserted at the very start of the track using the Add Event tool from the Music-X Bar Editor.
To do this, select the MIDI channel you'd like the event assigned to. Plonk it down on to the Bar Editor display and then drag it up or down until it's set to the appropriate patch number.
This approach certainly isn't perfect (it assumes that you want to use the same sounds on every channel for the entire duration of your tune), so vou might want to experiment with it Oh dear, you are getting in a bit of a muddle!
Unfortunately, there's a lot more to rendering an image in Imagine than simply selecting the Quick Render option from the pull-down menu. All this function does is to provide a quick and easy method of previewing your image before you render it properly.
In order to save a rendered image, you need to use the Project Editor to set up a Project, define it with the Stage Editor and then render it from the Project Editor screen. It's all a bit too complicated to explain here so may I recommended that you invest in some Amiga Format back issues (see page 133) - issues 53 through to 61 carried a very good series of in-depth Imagine tutorials which explained how to render an image, how to create Imagine animations and went into great detail about many more of this excellent program's functions.
In the absence of a good Imagine book, the AF tutorials are your best guide to getting to grips with Imagine.
Imagine is one of the best rendering packages available for the Amiga and to get the most out of it, you need the in-depth AF tutorials.
Embedding Program Change events into your Performance Data instead.
UPGRADE WOES I wonder if you could help me with various questions I need answering?
1. Is it possible to use the Kickslart 3.1 chip in a ROM sharer
for my trusty old A500?
2. 1 have seen an advert in your excellent magazine that claims
there are two different versions of the Kickstart 3.1 chip
(the high version and the low version). What is the
difference?
3. Where can I get the Licenceware program Blackboard v3) Andrew
Magowan.
London
1. Vou certainly can use the Kickstart 3.1 chip in a ROM sharer
for your A500. Kickstart 3.1 conteson a single 512K chip
which, like the Kickstart 2.(14 ROM used in the A500 Plus,
will happily work on a ROM sharer.
2. There are three versions of the Kickstart 3.1 - one for the
A500 A2000. One for the A3000 and another for the A4000.
Ignore any talk of high and low chips - just get the A500
version of the ROM and you won't go far wrong.
3. You should be able to get hold of the Blackboard v3 image
processor from any PD library that is part of the Central
Licenceware Register (CI .R) such as KT's (Dept A E. 75 The

FLICKER FEVER I have an Amiga 1200 with a 4Mb RAM expansion and two external floppy drives. Is there anything I can do to make Pixel 3D Pro AF65 Coverdisk) open with a non-interlace screen? I can't use the program for more than 20 minutes without developing a galloping migraine.
Jayne Fjohnson.
Guernsey Unfortunately not. Unless a program has been specifically written to allow you to change its screen mode (most modern applications support this feature via the monitors database), then I'm afraid you're stuck with the screen mode favoured by the programmer.
If the flicker is driving you crazy, why not treat yourself to a dual-svnc monitor that supports the A1200's DBL (double) screen modes and then use the Workbench Mode Promotion feature to force Pixel 31) to run in flicker-free mode?
Your choice of dual-sync monitors that support the DBL mode is limited to Commodore's 1940 or 1942 units (if you can find them) or Mictovitec's excellent 1440 which can be picked up for around £300.
DON'T TELL DAD Please answer this letter because 1 need helpl Recently my dad bought a Commodore 1085S monitor for my A500.
Just lately, however, some colours on the monitor are not of the same contrast across the entire screen - they start to fade away to white in the top right-hand comer of the screen. This mainly happens with colours that have a high value of red in them. I checked to sec if any of the pins were damaged on the RGB connector but they all look OK.
I also have a 4Mb Reference RAM expansion and a Citizen 240C printer but these wouldn't effect it. Would they? Please help, if my dad finds out that I’ve knackered his new monitor he could get violent!
Name and address withheld From die symptoms you've described, it sounds as though your monitor is suffering from a purity problem (as IA' engineers call it). This is usually caused by the monitor being placed near to strong magnetic fields whic h interfere with the delicate nature of the- tube.
Fortunately, it's possible to rectify the problem using a tool called a degattser. This tool fixes puritv problems and a number of other common faults. If you don 't want to go to the expense of buying a degattser. You can try borrowing one from a friendly TV engineer.
.-Vs always in these cases, the best cure for your monitor problem is prevention - never place anything that produces a strong magnetic field (such as speakers or a telephone) trear vottr monitor (or vour disks for that matter).
C WHAT YOU CAN DO 1 have been using AMOS for about two years, but I recently decided to change to the ( language which I am not so familiar with. I therefore have a few questions for you.
1. In AF66 you said in Workbench that it is a good investment to
buy Cliff Rantshaw's book about programming in C. Is there any
way of getting my hands on it?
2. If I can't get the book, what is the title of the best Public
Domain version of C and where can I get it from?
3. Are Ihe C commands for the Amiga the same as for other
platforms like a PC or Mac?
4. Is it possible to port programs from an Amiga to a PC? If so
how?
Nick Leatherland, Alfreton. Derbyshire
1. I nfortunatelv. Cliil Ramshaw's book is no longer available.
2. If von want to get started in (.'programming then you could do
far worse than to treat yourself to issue 47 of our sister
magazine. Amiga Shopper, which has a complete ( compiler
called DICE on its (overdi.sk. What's more, von can upgrade
vour Coverdisk compiler to the latest commercial version of
l)l( F. for an extra special price of £98.95. a saving of
about £30.
3. The core commands used by (.'are exactly the same regardless
of w hether you're w riting programs on an Amiga running DICE
ora PC running Holland C. |tist make sure that your C compiler
supports the ANSI (American National HARD FACTS I own an A600
with Workbench Kickstart 2.05 with 1Mb of Chip RAM, a Citizen
240C printer and an Amitek 3.5-inch external floppy drive and
a 1Mb upgrade. I'm fed up with disk swapping and loading big
programs from floppy, so I have decided to buy a hard drive.
I've had lots of advice from friends and I'm still not sure
which hard drive to buy.
There is a 120Mb 2.5-inch internal drive from Siren or Power Computing for £160 or a 3.5-irtch 260Mb drive for £150 with 50Mb of pre-installed PD and Shareware which is quite tempting. Then there's the external 260Mb Zappo Smart Stor Plus for £196 from Indi. The Zappo has its own power supply so it won't interfere with the Amiga's power supply. In my opinion, this is the best drive but I want an expert's opinion.
On the other hand there is the Overdrive - Special Reserve have a 170mb Overdrive for £200.
I don't know if the Overdrive has its own power supply. Does it have its own power supply? If so, which is better - the Zappo or the Overdrive?
Bearing in mind that I've only got between £160 and £200 to spend on a hard drive, what drive CD-ROM ON THE CHEAP I own a standard A600 and I would like to get a CO-ROM drive to run CDTV software or PD disks but I am told that the AS70 is not compatible with the A600. I don't want to pay £200 to get a CD” drive, so can you tell me of any cheap compatible drives and where to purchase them?
Steven Lock, New Cross, London That depends entirely upon your definition of cheap, Steven If you mean sub £150 then I'm afraid you’re going to be sadly disappointed. You could possibly pick up a second-hand CDTV for around that price and then Parnet it to your A600 via the parallel port. This allows you to run CDTV software (on the CDTV, obviously) and Standards Institute) standard and vou won't go l.u wrong. Dilferences do occur, however, with machine-dependent commands (to open windows, screens and so on), which are verv different between the various machines.
4. You can port (.'programs between the Amiga and PC simply bv
copying the source code on to a 72DK PC disk using a utility
such as CmssDOS to covert the files. As stated in point 3.
Vour source code will only compile on both machines it the
commands used are ANSI standard WHIRLWIND TORNADO I ant
considering purchasing a GVP 1230 II 40MhZ accelerator board
with 4Mb RAM for my Al 200.
Primarily to speed up 3D games such as Tornado and Formula One Grand Prix, However. I have a few queries which I have not had satisfactory answers to. Such as:
1. Does the GVP board work properly once installed into the
trapdoor expansion or do you have to install the driver
software on to a hard disk to enable it to work?
2. What difference does the Kickstart remapping facility make to
the speed of the board?
3. Can the Kickstart be remapped if you don't have a hard disk. I
don't have one and do not wish to incur the expense of
purchasing one.
Pgreaees, Maldon. Essex would you recommend and which company do you think is the most reliable to get the hard drive from?
Kevin Brown, Aberdeen Choosing a hard drive for an A600 or an A1200 can be a source of much frustration as your letter more than demonstrates. Should you buy an internal drive or an external? If you go for an internal model, should you buy a 2.5-inch or a 3.5-inch drive? All these questions (and more) must be faced by the hard drive buyer.
Right, let’s go through each option in turn. First, an internal 2.5-inch hard drive. This is without doubt the cleanest option because it’s the type of hard drive that Commodore designed for the A600 and A1200 Fitting an internal 2.5-inch drive gives you a reliable hard drive that doesn't draw too much power and is quick and easy to fit. A 3.5-internal drive, on the other hand, will work with your machine but bear in mind that the A600 and A1200 Amigas are not built to handle them. As a result, you'll need to cut the Amiga's metal shielding for a 3.5-inch drive to fit correaly. Once it's in.
You also have to be careful of power consumption - 3.5-inch IDE drives draw a lot more power than their smaller counterparts and this could you'll be able to access all those lovely PD CD-ROM discs. Don't expea lightning fast access times though - loading data from CD-ROM down a Parnet cable is nowhere near as fast as loading data from a CD-ROM conneaed direaly to your machine.
1. The (-VP accelerator will work perfectly well on vour A1200
without am software having to be installed. Depending on vour
memory and hardware configuration though, the software (an he
extremely useful.
2. Kickstart remapping makes a difference to ()penning
System-legal software which calls R( )M routines. Most games
do not make use ol the ROM routines lor drawing graphics
though, so it won't make any difference.
3. You don't need a hard disk (although I think you should
consider buying one anyway). Because Kickstart is remapped
into Fast RAM. So it doesn't take up any hard-disk space. O
The Smart Stor is a good hard drive option for A600 and A1200
owners, but there are many other choices.
Cause problems if you've got a RAM expansion and an external floppy drive.
External hard drives are a great option if you’re not keen on the idea of opening your machine (therefore invalidating your guaranty in the process) to fit the drive, because they simply slot into your machine's PCMCIA port. The Zappo Smart Stor and the Overdrive are essentially the same drive, so base your purchase purely on a question of price and after-sales service.
You could also consider the Squirrel SCSI interface which can also enable you to add a CD drive ¦ * I Tel. 0116 234 0682 or Fax. 0116 236 4932 ¦Hie Official Amos PI) lahraf) is the largest mace of Anx» retard mace code and programs in the wurtd toda) Tlie htrarv is nn by Lot A .Anne TtKka and t* endiavd b taac aess S»atw are.

This month he turns his attention to blitter objects.
I H you missed the AF€7 AMOS Professional Coverdisk, turn to page 133 to order your bach issue NOW!
For details of our AMOS Pro manual offer, see page 128.
One of AMOS 1‘m nsionar s most powerful features is it' ability to move and animate sprites - the moving objects that are at the heart of 95 per cent of arcade games. Virtually all games use sprites in one form or another - whether you're writing a platform game, a shool-em-up, a beal-em- up, a puzzle game or it Dungeon Master clone, sprites are a vital component.
Take a shoot-em-up game, for example - even moving object you see (bullets, aliens, explosions and so on) is a sprite.
Sprites are somewhat confusing on the Amiga because, unlike lesser machines, it has two types: Hardware sprites Blitter objects (also called software sprites or bobs) Each gives you essentially the same result - a movable object - but it's important to understand the differences between them so that yon can choose which la st suits your game. I lore's a quick rundown of what they have lo offer.
Hardware sprites: Hie purest typo of sprite is the common hardware sprite which is generated and displayed completely separately from the main screen bitmap by the Amiga's display chip. Denise.
Hardware sprites suffer from a number of major limitations. For starters, only eight hardware sprites can Ik- displayed at any one time. What's more, each individual sprite is limited to a maximum width of just 111 pixels (although you can join several sprites together to form one much larger sprite) and vou can only choose between either three or 15 colours (not including transparent). Even then, using 15-coloui sprites immcdiatciv halves the number ol hardware sprites available.
In their favour hardware sprites are very fast because they are handled by the Amiga's display Hardware sprites are drawn completely separately from the main screen bitmap by the Amiga's display hardware. As a result they're faster than blitter objects.
Hardware, making them ideal for bullets or any object that has to move very quickie.
Blitter objects (bobs): Blitter objects (or software sprites, il you so prefer) are drawn directly into a screen's bitmap by the Amiga's blitter chip. As a result, the number of colours that each bob can use is limited only by the number of colours offered by the screen bitmap - open a 32-colour screen and vou can use 32-colour bobs. What's more, there’s no restriction on the size of vottr DOUBLE BUFFERING If you're writing a game or a demo that makes use of blitter objects then it's vitally important that the screen that displays those blitter objects is double-buffered.
Double-buffering is a clever system to ensure all animations that your program displays, such as screen-scrolling and bobs, are silky smooth.
Without double-buffering, you may notice flickering and jittering when bobs are moved.
S66I HudV Double-buffering works by doubling up a screen so that it actually consists of two entirely separate bitmaps - one which is displayed (the physical screen) and another which is hidden (the logical screen).
All drawing operations (moving bobs, updating animations and so on) are performed on the hidden screen. When this screen has been completely redrawn, the physical and logical screens are swapped so that the logical screen is displayed. The old physical screen (the one that is now hidden) becomes the new logical screen and the whole process is repeated. It sounds complicated but all professional games programmers use this technique to ensure silky smooth animation.
Incorporating double-buffering into your own programs is very easy indeed with AMOS Pro because all the hard work is done for you - all you have to do is to create the double-buffered display and that's it.
To create a double-buffered display, just add the command Double Buffer to your program operations will take place on the logical screen immediately after you've opened the screen that and AMOS Professional will swap the two bitmaps you'd like to double-buffer. From now on. All bob whenever you call the Wait Vbl command.

Tutorial 7 bobs. Providing you have enough memory, you could move a 320x256 bob around the screen.
As always, however, there is one major disadvantage with blitter objects - speed. Shifting screen memory takes time and therefore bobs are considerably slower than real hardware sprites.
Although you're unlikely to notice the difference with smaller bobs, increase the size or the number of colours that they use and your blitter objects become painfully slow. By restricting their size and depth, however, you'll find the flexibility of blitter objects far outweighs any disadvantages.
We don't really have the space to cover both hardware and software sprites so. For the sake of this tutorial al least, we'll Ik- concentrating exclusively on blitter objects.
With a blitter object loaded into memory, you're ready to start programming. Placing bobs on the screen is easy thanks to AMOS Prnfrssumats comprehensive selection of bob-related commands. To switch on (display) a bob. All you need is the Bob command. Here's its format.
Bob NUMBER. X, Y, IMAGE NUMBER: T he number parameter is simply a value that AMOS 1‘rijessionaluses as an identifier to keep track of individual bobs when two or more are displayed simultaneously. Each and every object you define must have its own unique- identifier number.
X. Y: The X and Y parameters define the position of your bob on
the screen. These two co-ordinates should Ik- expressed in the
form of screen pixels using the top left-hand corner of the
current screen as the origin (point 0.0). TIME FOR SOME FUN...
That's enough of the theory - let's get stuck in to some
programming. Listed below is a very simple AMOS program that
makes use of the spaceship graphic on our AMOS Professional
Coverdisk. It opens a screen, double-buffers it and then
smoothly moves a bob across the screen from left to right.
Rem ••• Bob Demonstration Rem By Jason Holbom, Amiga Format Screen Open 0,320.256,lB.Lowres Flash Off : Curs Off : Cls 0 Rem ••• Double Buffer screen... Double Buffer BOB'S YER UNCLE In order to display a blitter object on your Amiga's screen, you must first define the appearance of the bob (its imagery) by creating a sprite bank - a file that contains all the images you want to attach to any bobs or sprites that your program will use.
For this important task, AMOS Professional includes a powerful utility program called an Object Editor. To access it select Edit Objects from AMOS Professional's User pull-down menu.
We don't really have enough space here to cover all the functions of the Object Editor in any depth - it's such a powerful tool that it would take an entire chapter of a book to cover its many uses. Suffice to say that it provides everything you need to define the appearance of your bobs.
Once you've defined your bobs with the Object Editor, they need to be saved off to disk as a sprite bank which can later be pulled into your program at runtime. The command to load a sprite bank into memory is Load followed by the filename of the sprite bank - Load MyBobs.ABK. for example.
IMAGE: The image parameter is a value that tells AMOS Pro which image within the sprite bank you wish to assign to your blitter object. A value of four, for example, would attach the image four to your blitter object. Unlike the number parameter, this doesn't have to Ik- a unique value - it's perfectly possible to use the same image with several Ixibs simultaneously. What's more, you can animate a bob simply by changing its image number whenever the bob is moved or redrawn.
Moving an object smoothly around the screen is very easy under AMOS 1‘mfnsionnL All that is required is to progressively increase or decrease the X (for left right movement) or Y (for up down movement) co-ordinates ol the bob that you'd like to move.
The easiest wav of achieving this is to hold the bob's co-ordinates in two variables - MYBOBX and MYBOBY. For example - and update them by- increasing or decreasing their values accordingly.
Each time you update the bob's co-ordinates, you Rem ••• Load sprite bank... Load -AMOSBOOK:AbkFlles SpaoeShlp.ABK" Rem Get palette from sprite bank... Get Sprite Palette Rem ••• Set bob ooordlnates... X=0 : Y=160 Do For X=0 To 320 Rem Draw bob... Bob 0.X.Y, 1 Rem ••• Synchronise screen... Walt Vbl Next X Loop If the colour palette of the screen on which you're displaying the bobs, does not exactly match the palette of the sprite bank, then AMOS Professional provides a handy command which lets you assign the palette from the sprite bank to the current screen.
To do this, just add the line Get Sprite Palette to your program directly after you've loaded your bobs and defined the screen that will display them.
Need to redraw it so that the bob appears to move.
AMOS Pro doesn't provide any special commands specifically for moving bobs, all you do is to call the Bob command again using the new coordinates and AMOS Professional automatically removes the old bob image and redraws your bob at its new position. Take this small section of code, for example.
For X = 0 To 320 Bob l.X.150,2 Wait Vbl Next X This very simple program demonstrates perfectly the process of moving a bob smoothly from one- side of the screen to another. OK. So it's not very exciting but it's worth noting how the illusion of movement is created by progressively increasing the value of the variable X. Also worth noting is the use of the Wait Vbl command. Just like the screen scrolling we covered last month, all bob redraws have to be synchronised with the Amiga display hardware so that your bobs aren't redrawn more than once each frame. What's more, redrawing a bob without
synchronising it with the screen hardware produces an annoying flicker. It GET THE BOOK!

Center 'neu' for neu user) baggers Passuord: Even though the Internet, and the Usenet in particular, can seem to be full of rubbish, there are some real gems. The Newsgroup Comp.sys.amiga.armounce is one such pearl. This is the place where Public
Domain authors announce their latest programs and many companies give notice of new versions of their products.
For instance, this is where I first heard about the PCMCIA modem drivers mentioned elsewhere on this page and any number of classic PD programs have been previewed here. It's a good place to keep an eye on what new products are being released and what new versions of old favourites are making a re-appearance.
For instance, this newsgroup is where I heard about a rather useful little program called Telser.
This is a serial Telnet driver which enables you to use normal Comms software across an Internet Telnet link. If that sounds like tcchnobabble, I'll cut away the needless terminology.
38400:8N1:ISO A Telnet link is the Internet equivalent of calling another computer on a modem. You are presented with a simple terminal screen where you type commands which are sent, one character at a time, to the remote computer via the various other computers in the link.
This may look lika a normal session on CIX, but if you look carafully, you can sea something unusual. It's the first line - the telephone number has been replaced with the address because Telser responds to AT commands.
However, unlike a modem link, the characters you type are sent in a special format, accompanied by various bits of information (such as the name and address of the remote computer). Telser basically pretends to be a modem while actually setting up a Telnet link.
To the Comms software, Telnet looks like a normal serial device, and it even responds to standard AT commands, with the phone number being replaced by the address of the remote site.
For instance, lo connect to CiX, you would type ATDT cix.compulink.co.uk. To set it up, all you need to do is install the software, start off AmiTCP and set your Comms software to use Telser.device instead of scrial.dcvice. This seems a bizarre thing to do. But there arc a multitude of applications.
Let's imagine a typical situation: you are an Amiga Comms user in Leeds. You fancy joining a commercial E-mail service such as CiX in London or the WELL (Whole Earth 'Lectronic Link) in San Fransisco. But you don't fancy the phone bills.
In steps Telser. You set up an account with an SP (Service Provider, a company which provides Internet access for a fee) such as Demon Internet who have a POP (Point Of Presence, a place which you call with your modem to connect) a local call away. Using Telser you can then connect to any Internet site in the world for the cost of a local phone call.
You can connect to services such as CiX or the WELL using either normal Comms software (such as Ncomm) or an Ol.R (Off-Line Reader) such as Lucy. Somewhat cheaper than calling London or San Fransisco, I think.
Most commercial services allow you to access them this way, and an increasing number of BBS arc also getting Internet links. Well, American 0 ones are anyway, because the cost of getting new telephone lines installed there is not extortionate like it is over here, and ISDN lines are actually affordable. A big thumbs down to BT, once again.
Ft 0 2 2 to 11:33 00:1 Telser costs a measly $ 15 (£10) to register. For a program as useful as this, it's a small price to pay. The unregistered version is limited to one link at a time, so you can only have one Telnet link running at any one time. If you register, you can have as many running as your Amiga (or the Internet) can cope with, so you could be downloading your mail from any number of services at once. This would give you even lower phone bills.
Several months ago I asked a question, but I've still not found the answer. The question was very simple: why is Comms and the Internet such a male dominated thing? Where are all the female Netsurfers? Answers, on a postcard please, to...

Ti MODEMS ON A CARD Those of you who read PC magazines will
have noticed an increasing trend towards putting modems on
PCMCIA cards. These new modems are small (about the size of a
credit card) and not overly expensive. Because the A600 and
A1200 have a PCMCIA slot can't you just plug one of these
modems in and get dialling?
Unfortunately, not. The PCMCIA slot works in a different way to the serial port so you can't just redirect things. What's needed is a device driver for the modem which deals with linking the Comms software with the modem.
Up until now. This software has not existed, but a recently-announced software driver enables you to use most popular PCMCIA modems with an A1200 or A600. It was written by Erik Quackenbush. Who has to win the award for the best-named Amiga programmer ever. Erik claims that this device works with most popular PCMCIA modems, although you should contact the distributors to check if you have a specific model in mind.
* 50 0 •0 ui UK and European distribution is being handled by
Eyetech systems, who can be contacted at eyetechOcix.
Compulink. Co.uk. The driver costs £29.95. COLOUR KITS for MONO

The Gallery AUSTRALIAN RULES Wow! Afon the Net! Now all us Aussies, Yanks and Martians can interact a bit more in the best Amiga mag on the planet. Here's a couple of points for you. Mate:
1. Amiga Format readers need no more sound and music Coverdisks.
SuprrJAMI, Music-X, OclaMED, Tigrr Cub, when does it end' Yes, the Amiga has brilliant sound capabilities but I DON'T and these issues and programs are a waste of money for me. So I'm not busing any '95 issues with music- related Coverdisks. If you can't get something else, pul on some PD stuff (not a PD soundtracker!).
2. It's February 5 here in Oz and I've just got a fresh,
straight-off-lhe-truck issue of AF66 (December). How about
allowing for this time lag in the compos and giving us a
chance?
How about an overseas readers-only compo once in a while? Will a subscription get A here sooner?
3. Will CD32 controllers work on my A1200 and can I use one for
two- button MKIIi Why wasn't there a CD32 controller option so
we could have all the buttons?
4. When are you going to make an Imagine 2 manual? I recall a
manual being reviewed in Aea fair while ago, is it still
available?
5. Ciould you encourage your advertisers to print their Internet
addresses? It's much easier, quicker and. Best of all. Cheaper
than phone calls or letters.
Tablet worth £54 99 for the best Gallery picture. Plus, you could be commissioned for DMA, the team behind Lemming s. Indicate clearly if you don't want your details passed on. Send entries to: Amiga Format. Gallery, 30 Monmouth St, Bath, Avon BA1 2BW.
6. Why can't the English cricket team catch a cricket ball?
7. Where docs Australia lit in to the future of the Amiga. Mr
Pleasance?
Please don't leave us to the lazy, useless twits that were Commodore Australia. The evcr-loyal Aussie Amigans deserve better.
I do love AF, please keep up the good work.
Ryan 'Music Disk Hater' Bentley ryan_b@hedland.edu.au South Hedland, Western Australia OK, here we go by the numbers:
1. Don 7 buy the next issue of Amiga Format. It has the rather
excellent Bars&Pipes on the disk. I'm sorry that you don 7
like the music software that u e have put on the disk, but a
lot of people do. should think Bars&Pipcs will be the last
for a while though.
2. We do try and allmc time for overseas entries, but in the fat
flung comm of what ivas once a glorious empire, you seem lo
get further and further behind.
Subscriptions will get there sooner, because they go air mail, instead of travelling all the way on some cargo ship, not much belter than the ones your ancestors probably travelled out on.
3. It does, you can and I have no idea.
4. It is sadly out of pnnt. There may still be plans for an
official Amiga Format guide to Imagine.
5. Many of them are getting wired for action, and hofiejulh will
see the sense of including F.-mait addresses in ads.
6. Er, it was the wrong sort of sun on the pitch, they had a
nasty curry the night INGRES by luan Diax, Denmark Moody,
atmospheric and ambient.
New to the computing scene, Juan made the perfect choice in an A1200 and Brilliance 2.0. The use of 256 colours has let him experiment with some suitably subtle shading effects.
Before, the umpire was blind etc. Oh dear, if only Beefy wasn 7 a bit past it we'd give you the thrashing you richly deserve.
7. will pass on your comments to Mr Pleasance. have lo say
that I think Europe will be his immediate concern, but don 7
think the new company will leave any stone unturned in their
quest for Amiga dominance.
ROSE-TINTED SPEC PT 1 I have been comparing Amigas to ZX Spectnims, and have come to the conclusion that ZX Spectrums kick the Amiga's arse.
The graphics are highly superior and the game playability is out of this world. Also on the Spectrum die loading speed is so much faster than the .Amiga it's unbelievable.
A ZX Spectrum lover Indeed. It uses less electricity too, and you toon 7 have the expense of having to get one of those nasty ( 'J)-dnves. prefer the ZXSO myself. I never had any trouble with dust getting into the keyboard... ROSE-TINTED SPEC PT 2 I have an A1200 and I would like to know if anyone can supply me with a Spectrum 128K»2 emulator.
While I was at a friend's house. I noticed his old Spectrum poking out from under the bed. We set it up and had a go on some of the games.
Because of this I had a nostalgia attack and I want to play some of the old classics (in particular Target Continued overleaf to WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS When I am not dabbling with my Amiga, I like to pass the time with a little PMA (Photographic Mind Analysis).
I believe that a great deal can be learnt about a person and their inner workings by simply studying their photograph.
For example.
Steve Jarratt would like to think he is mean and moody, resting his head casually upon a hand in a 'here I am, come and get it girls, but if s cool if you don't want to' sort of way. The grim truth is, once alone, he openly blubbers like a snivelling wreck of a man, assuming everyone hates him.
With David Pleasance. His inner mind is written all over his face. The eyes stare blankly as if to say 'why me?', and although you can't see it in the photo, one hand probably nurses a half-empty tumbler of cheap whiskey.
Steve Bradley gazes impassively beyond the reader, quietly fascinated by something, implying his mind is amused by small things. Perhaps someone behind the photographer is waving a tiny carrot on a stick, without which.
Steve would maybe wander off and gurgle in a comer.
Nick Veitch looks like, erm, well, actually he just looks a bit chubby really.
John Graham. Hull I notice you didn't include a photo of yourself so we could poke fun at you. And your letter was typed, so we can't even analyse your writing. Take this AF sweatshirt, though you don't deserve it and do something more useful with your time.
APRIL 1995 READERS' LETTERS SENSIBLE OUTRAGE Sensible World Of Soccer was the biggest selling floppy disk game on any format over Christmas.
Although many of you are delighted with the game, there are also murmurings of discontent.
Here's a selection of points from our postbag.
5THP’ TWO GUITARS AMBER by Danny Chraslina. South Humberside GRATUITOUS by Andrew Powell. Canada by Roy Hook. Mid Clamorga I love Sensible World Of Soccer. I love the way the little players writhe on the floor when you foul them. I love the way the ref marches on to the pitch relentlessly and hands out cards willy-nilly. I love the total feeling of being completely overwhelmed by the sheer number of teams.
But where are the crowd samples from around the world? Is it just that my faithful old 1 Mb A500 can't play them or something?
Or have I got a duff copy? Hmmm.
Graham Lally GrahaLallysio 14amiga. Demon, co. Uk How did Sensible World Of Soccer manage to get 95 per cent? It's a pile of crap. The arcade section is good, but the management section is completely unplayable.
Whatever team you manage, you lose a pile of cash each week and your players' values constantly decrease. This makes it impossible to complete a season. You nearly always get the sack or start the season with a minus bank account.
I phoned Renegade and they said I should sell my best players to reduce my wages. What? Sell my best players, but this means my team will be weakened. I told them that the wages weren't a problem, but the running costs were.
I would be grateful if you could get Renegade to sort out this problem, because at the moment I've got an expensive pair of drink mats sitting next to my computer.
Darren Noyce. Stowmarket Suffolk Having accurate season data for hundreds of clubs from all around the world is brilliant and the new managerial side of the game is a welcome addition, but I could find no mention in your review of some of the downfalls.
Let’s look at the back of the box: crowd samples from around the world, it says. That's funny, all I can hear is one rather muffled sample played over and over. And when I try to turn off the chants with F10, they refuse to do so.
Why is the Auto Save Highlights option reserved for the A1200, when they worked on my trusty A600 in the original?
And what about the goalie tweaking you praised in the review.
I consider myself to be quite a good games player, but there's no way I can consistently score one goal a match, even with a decent team.
Why didn't Sensible include an option to alter the goalies' skills?
I enjoyed the game far more when I could score several goals against the Amiga instead of being consistently beaten 2-0.
Mike Edwards. Stoke Bishop, Bristol I'm an avid fan of Sensi, but I was bored with handing 8-0 kickings to my Amiga. I'm happy the computer teams are harder to beat. But how could you be so blind as to miss the fact in your review that the computer teams cheat? I find it extremely annoying that my ace centre forward is steaming goal- bound only to be brought down FROM BEHIND by a player who is clearly several pixels behind.
Also, does your version fail to go into l-will-score-you-git mode in the last five minutes of each half?
Ian Hayward, Deeside, Clwyd The playability has been tweaked out of the game. Where the original was exciting and enjoyable, 5WOS is slow, frustrating and tedious.
SA Tyne and Wear Well, there you go. Some people liked it some people hated it.
Sensible Software are hoping to release some updates for the game, so watch out for the next issue of Amiga Format «¦ Renegade and Chase HQ) on my A1200. Do you know where I could find an emulator?
Ben Carter. Old Lynn Road. Norfolk There are a feu’ I'll .X Spectrum emulators. Check out the ads in his issue for details Iin the ( niled I'll one I. and you can fulfil your nostalgic fantasies.
UFG IS NOT FOR ME I bought a copy of the magazine f Ihmale f uture Games and I am so angry. The mag made several below- the-belt remarks about (ID*8 and just went on about the new wonder machines that are hitting the shelves in some far off land. The thing that really got me was a joke Top Five Crap Consoles feature with CD' * at number three. The Sega Mega CD was not one of the five w hich compounded my anger.
I will not Ik- buying IFC again, and please, if vou see any of their staff wandering around the Future Publishing offices, gob in their coffee or something.
Jamie Dunn. Park North, Swindon I know what you mean, hut I think the staff of the magazine arc probably jus!
Envious because they can 7 work on a top magazine like Amiga Format. However, do suggest you spend your money a hit more sensibly in the future. If you pul £10 in a budding society, by the time one ofVFG s fare machines is actually available here, thanks to compound interest, you might actually be able to buy it,.. and find out that you ie still better off with an Amiga. I think that the L'FG staff already have foreign substances in their coffer - rest assured, their life is hell enough already.
PC OR NOT PC?
Can you tell me if there is any work going on for an Amiga card for the PC? I think I ant right in saying that it was going to be an AGA-based card, that allowed the user to run Amiga programs through Windows, or possibly on a separate monitor.
To be honest. 1 haven't the foggiest idea where the story came front, probably PC Plus, but they have also been saying that Commodore has been wound up.
And there will be no more Antigas.
Steven Hocking steven@broiico. Demon, co. Uk As you may have noticed elsewhere in this issue, the Amiga is far from dead. The conce il of an Amiga card for the PC is based on fact - it is something that the Amiga International tram are thinking about. I think it S a great idea - all those people who were unlucky enough to fall for the wrr-hy ied brainwashing campaigns of Intel. Microsoft and IBM will actually hr able to use their machines for something useful.
DEAR NEW EDITOR 1 would like to thank Future Publishing for bringing Amiga Format from strength to strength.
I have an A1200 with 2Mb of RAM and an 85Mb hard drive. I would like to know if, in a future issue, Amiga Formal could have a few pages dedicated to upgrades for the A1200. Such as memory upgrades.
I don't think the Amiga is dead - its voyage has just begun. Keep the two Coverdisks. I think thev are a valuable asset to vottr loyal readers.
Good luck being editor.
Anthony Pcrsaud, Hayes. Middlesex Thanks very much for your vole of support. Fm glad you are enjoying using your Amiga, and rest assured about the Coverdisks - we aim to bring you the best for your Amiga for a long time to come.
THE PENTIUM PROBLEM In AF6STim Smith devoted his column to the Pentium chip bug.
I lowever. By concentrating on the chances of the bug occurring, I feel he missed the crux of this matter.
The problem is not that there was, or is, a bug, because almost every designer and programmer will tell you, due to the complexity of modern hardware and software, everything has bugs in it. Even the Amiga had loads ol setpatches as revisions came out, so apart from having a good laugh, it is w rong to tr to lord this over the PC owners.
The real problem is that Intel did not and, as far as I know, were not planning to tell anyone about the bug even though they have known about it for at least a year.
If they had told people they might have lost a few sales, but programmers could have patched or worked around it in the software and then they would have avoided all this hoo-ha. When will these big companies learn that this sort of secrecy doesn't work?
Julian Cameron Jules9came.demon.co.uk You ore right. ,4 nd men when they did admit to the bug. Initially they said they were only going to fix it for spectjie users who could prove that it may rouse them a problem - incredible. How many Intel engineers does il take to replace a lighlbulb? 0.9987432512... DERISORY ROBOTS Nice to see the reviewers back on track with the Rise Of The Robots review (AF67). It's a shame so many people have bought it already because it was on the shelves before a proper magazine reviewed it. The Cl' Amiga guy still gave it 81 per cent, even though he admitted in his
review that nobody else in the office would go near it. Even lesser mags gave it ridiculous scores of above 90 per cent! The words 'hander' and back' spring to mind.
Jon Mahoney jonalhan9jona. Demon, co. Uh I don V know if we'd go so far as lo suggest anything like money changing hanrls. After all. The reviews are just opinion, and some people, someieheie, might have liked the game. Il may he that the rrvieuvrs on those magazines which did give it good scores are not very gootl.
In that their opinions don V correspond to the views of r uite a lot of people. In a situation when magazines give scores you don V agree with. suggest you stop buying them.
STOP COMPLAINING!
Well! Whatever next? Soft-I.ogik's PR people in the .i letters pages Can you spot the Amiga on the cover of Fish's 1990 prog rock extravaganza, and what does it signify?
(AF67). 1 agree it is a shame that PageStream 3 could not have got a better mark, but your job. Soft-
l. ogik. is to release good products, not to complain when had
products get had scores.
On a lighter note, a while ago in Afyou asked us to write in if we heard games mentioned in songs.
Well. I haven't heard any games, hut there is an A500 on the cover of Vigil In A Wilderness Of Minors by Fish.
Stuart Hedges. Pelts Wood, Kent Our resident Fish expert was unable lo confirm this, because we have locked her in a secure cupboard. think Soft-1.ogik are a comf any that has the ability to release good products, which is why the initial release of PageStream .4 was such a disappointment. Soft-higik are continuing to u rdatc the software, and we will review it again in the future, RAISE A TOASTER Friday. January 20. 11B( .2, just after Fantasy Football!sugar. Yes. It's Duckman.

H y ft THE MAN AT THE TOP Write to Amiga International managing director David Pleasance do Amiga Format, 30 Monmouth St, Bath BA1 2BW.
WHICH WAY FORWARD FOR THE AMIGA?
When will the CD" module come out for the A4000? It's much needed - all PC owners can easily get one but don't release the trapdoor CD thing like for the A1200. Go for a PCMCIA solution like the Zappo drive.
Will there be commercials for new Amiga releases? I really hope so! And not only in good old England, but in the entire Amiga using world. Set up a BBS in as many places as possible and connect them to the Internet. Why not get people from all big European and American computer magazines to look at an A4000 040T 060T (A5000?) And have a few people to show them off? Let them see Final Writer. Real 3D, X- CAD 3000, Sca a, PageSetter 3.0 AGA, Lightwave etc. Knock their socks off!
You should also look at making Amigas cheaper - an A4000 040 should cost around £900 with 10Mb RAM and a 240Mb hard drive.
John Gustafsson, Sweden A Cdu compatible drive for the A4000 has been designed but has to be subjected to rigorous testing once a prototype has been built.
We expect to be able to bring this to market in about four or five months after the management buyout is successful. It is our intention to produce TV commercials and these will be made available to the appointed distributors in each territory to use as and when they see fit.
There already exists a comprehensive Bulletin Board Network around the world linefeed many completely fabricated rumours stem from it), however, we acknowledge the room for enhancement and improvement of the system.
Many people from the software and hardware companies you mention spend a great deal of their time demonstrating the Amiga systems out-performing Pcs and we will support this activity fully.
When all the details of our plans for Amiga International are released, I believe everybody will feel much more secure about the long-term future of our favourite computer. It will be in good hands.
Wasn't the right choice for those particular requirements.

WITH THIS MONTH'S COVERDISKS YOU CAN... Do the write thing. Digita's exclusive Wordworth AFC Coverdisk package gives you real word power.
Enjoy one of the best-ever platform games for the Amiga, and be bowled over by the very wonderful Kingpin.
Steve Bradley certainly bowled a strike when he found these two brilliant game demos for you.
DE-CRUNCHING YOUR GAMES DISK Yes readers, it's one of those disks. Get yourselves two blank formatted disks and follow the on-screen instructions. It couldn't be simpler. Honest. Oh, and remember, the King Pin demo will not work on an A500, even with 1Mb. Our apologies.
King Pin and Bubble rnr Squeak Sir Francis Drake did ii as ihc Spanish Armada approached Plymouth Ho. David Bryant does it with a pipe. Camper van Beethoven took the skinheads along for a turn back in the late Eighties, Fred and Barney are regular participants and as for Roseanne, well, she docs it most Fridays.
Bowling. Be it Crown Green, indoor or tenpin. The rolling ball has gathered little moss over the years, steadfastly refusing to be rolled over by newfangled forms of entertainment such as fancy computers and Sky TV. Oh the joy of a strike, or the anticipation as your wood reaches the crown - will it be enough to win the St Helens And District Open, or are you doomed to defeat by the be-flai capped Yvarringtonian. Loyally supported by his Yorkshire terrier Jack.
But no, for the age of computing has caught up with (kid's Own Game. King Pin is here, I-I pounds of solid marbley, plastic-type stuff rumbling at you with only one thing on its mind - skittle slaughter. Five frames to go at here, two balls per go. Follow this closely. Using a joystick pad, position the bowler carefully around the centre of the aisle, then move the shaft up or You can trust Amiga Format to bring you the best quality software for our Coverdisks. And this month we have three - yes, that's three - great programs for your enjoyment... down 10 set the ball speed. The quicker you
bowl, ihe more difficult accurate aim is. An arrow shoots back and forth across the alley; you bash the Fire button when the time is right and.
Hey ho. Game on.
This demo is primarily for the A1200.
Although A600 owners can happily participate.
Apologies to A500 owners. The demo runs rather slowly on the A600 - the full version runs considerably faster as well as including different weighted balls, enhanced sound effects, tournament options and the chance to create your own players. And all for 13 sovs.
BUBBLE AND SQUEAK BACKING UP YOUR COVERDISK Copying your Coverdisk is very simple. Just follow the stages below... 1 Bootup with your Workbench disk, and find the Shell icon, in your system drawer.
Double-click on this to go into the Shell.
OVE 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: 31 MorhbwKh_ By far the finest puz ly platform afTair of recent times, and it seems, judging by the charts, largely ignored by your good selves is Audiogenic's Hubble 'n'Squeak. And by God, the ageing, patchy Winter Olympu s is at number one, simply because you can pop into a chainstore and pick it up for a fiver. Erk.
Enlightenment is at hand. Four enormous, and indeed, exclusive levels are included here for the purpose of sheer pleasure, the odd squeal of anguish, accompanying moments of air-punching joy as you finally contrive to steer your blue-caped pal to the level exit.
You're the small, thinning kid (you look a bit like the nipper with piano in Charlie Brown), your FIVE PLAYING TIPS
1) You can shoot things by pressing FIRE.
2) Press DOWN and FIRE when you want Squeak to follow Bubble,
repeat the process when you tire of him.
3) Bubble can kick Squeak. Stand them next to each other and
whack FIRE.
4) DOWN and FIRE also enables you to pick up and drop things.
5) Squeak can chuck Bubble in the air. Stand in front of him and
press UP and FIRE.
Name is Bubble. Squeak sports a fine blue outfit, a red nose and you have to scale the platforms, solve the little problems and head for the exit. Now, either you leave Squeak at the bottom of the level and knock out the nasties before returning to accompany him to the exit, or you take him along for the ride, utilising 'the big lad' with certain special manoeuvres. The demo recognises the CD32 joypad affording you separate buttons to jump and fire.
The full game is available in two versions; A500 600 and A1200. As well as having 30 levels, there are five fun end-of-world shool-cm-ups and 10 bonus levels scattered to boot. Enjoy. O Wordworth AFC overleaf 4 COMPETITION Five folk, using a combination of guile and wit can win themselves a copy of the full version of Bubble 'n' Squeak. Simply play through the demo and tell us the last password you receive, and while you're at it, jot down whether you want the A1200 or A600 version.

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.

Wordworth is one of the finest word processing packages available for the Amiga, and here's your very own exclusive Amiga Format Coverdisk version.
Graeme Sandiford shows you how to get started.
There is one type of software that nearly everyone has (or should have) - a word processor. However, not everyone has a good one. Which is why we have decided to bring you an exclusive version of one the Amiga's most popular word processors - Wordworth by Digita International Ltd.
Over the last few years. Wordworth has held the dominant position in the .Amiga word processing market. Each version of this popular Amiga word processor has incorporated features that were considered ground-breaking in their day. The latest incarnation. 3.ISE, is no exception and sports some extremely powerful and flexible features that have not been seen in any Amiga programs before.
The Coverdisk version (Wordworth AH} has been slightly cut down, but is still feature-packed and fully useable. You'll be able to sample the delights of Wordworth's brand-new easy-to-use interface, make good use of the brand-new Auto Correct feature and best of all. You'll be able to save your files.
Ye* that's right you'll be able to save your files, although only in Wordworth's own format. You'll even be able to print your documents, provided you have a printer of course - it's good, but not that good!
The program's a doddle to run. Just insert it into your internal drive, reboot your machine and you're away. However, please note that you can only run this version from the Coverdisk - it cannot be installed lo a hard drive or be used if you have booted up another disk such as a hard disk or a Workbench disk.
However, despite the program's simplicity, if you've never used a word processor before or would like to get the low-down on the program's new features, just follow the simple instructions 011 these two pages. Alternatively, you can use Wordworth AH’s built-in help system.

text (such as bold or italic).
However, you can't change your font because there is only one supplied.
5 Tab Settings Tabs can be left-aligned, right-aligned, centred or decimal. Left right and centred all behave in a similar fashion to the justify icons. The decimal tab aligns text with decimal points with the decimal point in the position of the tab. To insert a tab into your text simply select the kind you want and then dick on the horizontal ruler at the top of the screen at the point to which you want the text to be tabbed (indented).

¦ I t;.. vy z .£ THE REAL THING APRIL 1995 ' HOW TO USE
YOUR COVIRDISKS f GOT A PROBLEM WITH YOUR COVERDISK?
CALL 0191-584 0682 (MOM MU 2PM-6JOPM) Your Coverdisk should be working fine, but if not, these hints, tips and corrections may sort out the problem for you quickly and easily.
I PAGESETTER 3 SOLUTIONS Assign Fonts: PS3Fonts: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.
Although it is not actually a Coverdisk, some of you have been experiencing problems with PageSetter 3. The upgrade to our great Page Setter 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:
1. Make a copy of your original Workbench disk, or your usual
start-up disk.
2. Using a text editor (such as ED), add the following to your
start-up sequence (before the ENDdi command), or your user
start-up H you have one.
ZEEWOLF (AF66) Curious one this. Despite rigorous testing, some of you will have received Xeeimlf Coverdisks that won't work on your Amiga. This is nobody's (ault in particular but a peculiar incompatibility quirk - there is a problem with Zrewolf with certain makes of internal disk drives.
Both game producers Binary Asylum and Amiga Formal were unaware of this incompalibilty, but Binary Asylum have now sorted it out. And new versions of the game are now available that work with all internal disk drives.
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 arc on the disk, OK! If you boot up from the Musie-X program disk, like it says to do in the instructions, there is no problem. 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).
To get a new copy of Zerwolf, return your faulty disk and an SAE to Amiga Formal. Tenmlf Disk.
DisCopy Labs Ltd. PO Box 21. Daventry, Northants NN11 5RT.
PAGESETTER 2 (AF63) There are no problems with this program, but a few people seem to be having difficulty with fonts.
PagrSelter 2 works with CompuGraphic fonts, but it needs an .ate file. If your font doesn't have one, PageSrller 2 won't recognise it.
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!
PROVECTOR (AF58) There is nothing wrong with this disk, but it uses the ARP.library. as do many other Amiga programs. This library, like all other libraries, has to be located in the LIBS: drawer of the start-up disk. If you arc booting up from Workbench, this is the LIBS: drawer on that 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 PS3lnstall:libs Font£ngine.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 Page
Setter uses to tell which fonts are available.
The ARP.library is provided with the disk, in the LIBS: drawer, so you can just copy it to your boot-up disk. For example, put the ProVrclor program disk in the drive and type: copy dfO:libs arp.library Libs: THE LION KING AGA (AF67) A number of people have returned their l.ion King disks.
Even though there is nothing wrong with them. As clearly stated on the label and in the instructions The I.ion King is AGA-only, so it only works on an A1200.
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: I I HILARIES - These are compact routines which arc 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 time. 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.
ASSK .N - 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 device names path names So, if you had installed a program from disk called Paint and installed it to a hard drive in the utilities drawer, your command might look like: Assign Paint: hdO:Utilities IN GENERAL A few things to remember about Coverdisks: A With most disks, it's easier to boot up from the decompressed Coverdisk because this has all the fonts, libraries and devices needed by the
program.
• If you boot from another disk, you may have to copy over some
libraries and fonts. Use the Copy command or drag the files,
having first switched on Show All Files mode.
• To install software on to a hard disk, you may have to make an
assign or two. The assigns should be of the original disk name
and point to the new filc name.

36 . 01322 272908 When you’re buying from any
mail order company, it’s worth following these Amiga Format
guidelines: 1 Before you send any money for goods, ring the
supplier to make sure the item you require is in stock.
Ask questions about the company's policy on delivery and returns of faulty equipment. Make sure there are no hidden costs such as postage and packaging. Find out when you can realistically expect to receive your goods.
2 Always read the small print on advertisements.
3 Beware companies that do not include their address on their adverts. Avoid companies which do not answer or return your calls.
4 By far the best method of payment is by credit card. If ordering goods of more than £100 in total value, you are legally entitled to claim compensation from some credit companies if the retailer goes bust. Check your credit card company’s policy.

Issue 71 On sale Thursday April 13th BARS&PIPES PROFESSIONAL COVERDISK Possibly the best-liked music package, B&P features MIDI support, SMPTE codes and everything else you could want for professional-quality music production.
We've even included the extra Internal Sound Kit, so you don't need MIDI equipment to use this software.
The exclusive, and indeed, enormous playable demo of probably the biggest Amiga game of '95 - Alien Breed 3D.
Fully texture-mapped, and with Goraud shaded graphics, this is the game that most people thought the Amiga incapable of. It promises to be THE first-person perspective shoot-em-up on the Amiga. J Plus: and APRIL 1995 FORMAT FORUM announcement and put a flag in the ground by informing prospective developers now’ and not two months before launch.” Paul Ralph, managing director of Almathera, suggested: "establishing an Advisory Board composed of representatives from amongst developers, publishers, distributors and other contributors to the Amiga's development which could meet with him and senior
Amiga stalT on a quarterly basis to question, review and comment on progress afTecting the whole .Amiga community."
John Bittner, president of Zuma Group Inc. suggests Mr Pleasance should; Commodore Beard Trimmer into production to raise some cash."
I'll leave the last word to Keith Smith from Millennium; “Change football teams.
Chelsea are crap."
I can't argue with that.
• So, that's what the great and good think.
But what about you? What should David Pleasance do when the buy-out is finalised?

“Identity a single segment of the computer market where the current Amiga models have die best chance of success," and "focus all efforts on dominating that segment of the market." While another US-based president, John Merson of Dr. T's Music Software, offers, more prosaically, that he should: "Sell 500,000 computers into the Common Market countries and then software developers will bring out new Amiga products."
Along the same lines. Jeremy Rihll, managing director of Digita International, would be content if David Pleasance: "Put together 100,000 commemorative Amiga bundles celebrating its 10th birthday. And sell them all." While Tim Christian, managing director of Microprose UK. Is concerned that distribution of good software is given a high priority to ensure that: "Amiga formats arc not simply dropped in favour of the newer platforms."
Nick Walkland, PR manager of Empire Interactive, would just like to sec the new team: “Ensure there are some Amigas out in the shops," and if that fails, to: "Get the elcome to Format Forum, a new part of the mag where we invite you. Our loyal, opinionated readers, to reply to a question we set. The most informative, relevant and wilts' replies will be printed next issue. All respondents whose replies get printed will be rewarded with one of our fine AT sweatshirts, in addition to basing the satisfaction of knowing their opinions will be read by everyone who is anyone in the Amiga community.
To introduce this new section, we invited some of the industry's movers and shakers to answer the following: "Avsuming the management buy-out succeeds, what is the first thing David Pleasance should do?"
"Celebrate!" Said several people (or words to that effect). Many other replies made mention of the growing threat of low-cost Pcs. But industry veteran Bruce Everiss, organiser of the All Formats Computer Fairs, was the only one to suggest the radical: "Make a plug-in local bus 68040 board for the PC which is CD**, FMV and ACA-compatible." Sadly. Bruce's suggestion is rendered impractical by his closing line: "Sell it for £99."
Giles Hunter. MD of the retailing, publishing and printing conglomerate Guildhall Leisure was rather more practical: "Open the bottle we'll be sending," he suggests, "then get the A1200 out as soon as possible at a reasonable retail price." A view echoed by Richard Eddy, marketing director of Codemasters and also, predictably, by Mai Thomas.
General Secretary of the National Association Of Specialist Computer Retailers, who adds: "A new machine must be seen to be on the horizon for 1995," and that David Pleasance should: "channel the machines via the High Street specialist computer retailer."
Keith Smith, PR manager of Millennium Interactive, would like to see more communication between the hardware and software communities: “Make a positive and definitive Welcome to Format Forum, a new section of the magazine where we want to hear your views. This month AF's Dale Bradford is your host.
