AMIGA FORMAT From next month (Issue 72, June) the price of Amiga Format will rise to £4.50. The increase has been forced on Future Publishing by a 33 per cent rise in the cost of paper. To try to soften the blow we are offering a special subscription rate for a limited period of time. Turn to page 133 for details.

And
although the long-running saga of the Commodore buy-out is getting extremely close to being finally resolved, in some bizarre exponential curve of happenings it isn't quite there yet. Rather like the frog crossing the road, who can hop half the distance left to travel each lime, we approach the end in an ever shallower curve.
As I write this, the bidding for Commodore is still wide open. As I mentioned last month, all the protagonists have die means to [jay at least twice what the company is worth - so it's not a question of financial means or muscle any more, just one of sheer determination.
A major --- -- development came to light just as we were going to f press though.
The German PC giant Escom has put in a US$ 6m bid for Commodore and managed to procure the whole of the Rumbelow's chain which closed a couple of month's ago. Just what the impact of this will be on David Pleasance's management buy-out effort remains to be seen, but it would seem that Escom have grand designs.
Their interest in Commodore and their acquisition of Rumbelow's has certainly brought new interest to the buy-out story, particularly as Escom were previously only interested in the Commodore logo, so that they could badge their Pcs (the Commodore Pcs were very popular in Europe).
It seems likely, although we say this nearly every month, that something dramatic will have happened to Commodore by our next issue, so keep an eye out for it.
The other thing that is likely to cause reaction amongst Amiga fans everywhere, is that the price of your favourite mag is going up to the still-great- value sum of £4.50. Before you start powering up your Wordworth AFC Coverdisk to fire off a long, whingeing diatribe, let me just say this. AMIGA Formal, apart from when it only had one disk this time two years ago, has cost just under four quid since April 1992. So the price rise is barely ahead of inflation over that two-year period.
Also, something which you probably won’t have heard, the evil paper barons have hiked their prices by over 30 per cent, and there may be more rises to follow. As you can imagine, that sort of increase has had a dramatic effect on the cost of printing the magazine.
Faced with such an increase in paper costs, there are only two things we can do - we can either cut back in other ways, or put up the price of the magazine.
Actually, we have fallen somewhere in between, but the net result is that you will have to pay an extra 51 pennies for your AMIGA Formal as of next month (as we've shown you in our lavish illustration).
Subscribers shouldn't worry because they arc protected against any price rises - and they also get an extra disk, a lovingly-prepared Borkstage newsletter and loads of fabulous special offers and exclusive subscriber-only competitions. So, if you've been thinking of subscribing anyway, now would be an ideal time to do it Ivccausc we arc offering a special rate - but only for a limited period. In fact, it's cheaper to subscribe to AMIGA Formal now than it has been for, oooh, ages. For full details of our special Beat The Price Rise subscription offer, turn to page 133.
Of course, I don't expect you to all just accept the increase (although it only works out at just over £6 a year), so by all means complain to me if you like, but I'm afraid it won't make any difference because that's the wav it is.

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,

Boots were created by hand until the mid 15th century when crude printing processes were first introduced. Albeit with 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 slop 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 to an explosion in communication possibilities throughout the world.
At SoffWood, our constant aim is to bring you these powerful, up to date technologies with the best possible software for your specification of Amiga.

anybody heard anything on the Nine O’clock News about the
Government's Department For Information Technology getting
together with the Department Of Trade And Industry to help out
a brand new UK-based computer manufacturer based In Maidenhead
and using a name like AMIGA or like, erm, something?
I thought not. For a start we don’t have a Department Of Information Technology. What would be the point of that aside from setting dangerous precedents for departments with the word ‘Information’ in them? And secondly, while seeming to be quite happy to flog off industries left right and centre (Der Jaguar for a start) we don’t appear to have a good track record for standing behind our own IT Initiatives.
NOLU Call me a revisionist old fogey but I would have thought it would have been a good Idea of Mr Heseltlne to make a visit to our own dear David Pleasance and, over a pint In the local, discuss the possibilities of making Amiga UK a going concern for the future. It could well be an idea to have a domestic personal computer, alongside the Archimedes and Amstrad that could be used at the cutting edge of the Information Superhighway. It would be an even better idea to have a head start by having this AMIGA or Amlglla thlngle Installed In a few million households to start with. Fancy If this
installed user base were also loyal to the brand through thick and very, very thin Indeed.
Just think, a UK-produced home computer for under £500 that had an operating system that could already do most of the things that the other big O Ss are fighting over? A non- I mould haue thought it mould haue been a good idea for Mr Heseltine to pay a uisit to Dauid Pleasance.
Frightening piece of technology already familiar to the generation of users who are now entering business?
Naiue? Ves probably. This notion of supporting native Industries with Government clout does rather go against the current trend for... well for allowing market forces such as Japanese trade restrictions. US trade restrictions and European government support to take their natural course.
It’s plain daft of me to want a little slice of my taxes to go towards increasing Gross Domestic Product and employment In an Industry that could, In the next 10 years, see the UK in a leading position once the US-funded and controlled Information Superhighway (blah blah blah) does make its way Into every household.
I guess that we should wait until this UK-based information technology company that no one’s ever heard of because it doesn’t deal in MSDOS, Is able to stand on its own two feet before we sell It off to someone else. And If It can’t then, hell, what have we lost? Nothing to worry about, let’s go back to sleep.
JSJS Escom enter Commodore r lO NEWS MAY 1 995 ? | The Baguley Column |p l|Hfa just to put a spanner in the works, it has been rumoured that a couple of other US groups may be interested in the company!
Escom have already recently bought the Rumbelows chain of 231 shops which makes them one of the UK’s largest computer retailers too.
If Escom are successful in their bid for Commodore International, their large number of High Street stores will mean that when they begin manufacturing and selling Amigas again there will Ire readymade retail outlets available.
AMIGA FORMAT From next month (Issue 72, June) the price of Amiga Format will rise to £4.50. The increase has been forced on Future Publishing by a 33 per cent rise in the cost of paper.
To try to soften the blow we are offering a special subscription rate for a limited period of time. Turn to page 133 for details.
If you're a music fanatic then you'll already be delighted with Amiga Format's Bars&Pipes stuff. But Amiga Shopper goes one better and brings you the full version of the excellent Boom Box on Coverdisk 1.

• Escom join Commodore race ..pi0-11
• Codemasters look to the Amiga pi2-13
• Team 17 sign Ocean deal ......pi5
• FutureNet success pl6 the race for German PC
manufacturer Escom have placed a bid estimated to be US$ 6m for
the trademark, assets and intellectual property rights of
Commodore International.
Escom are Germany's second-biggest computer company and join American chain of retailers CEI (Creative Equipment International) and the Commodore UK management buy-out team led by David Pleasance in the bidding for Commodore.
Last month we confidently told you that the Commodore International buyout was entering its final phase. Under the original terms of the liquidation the final phase was to take only 14 days and Commodore International would have had a new owner by now. But the Escom bid further complicates the whole process and it will be a fewr more weeks before any result is announced.
But it should all be decided by the end of April and we will bring you the full story in the next issue of Amiga Format. However, MORE AMIGA MAGS Computers are boring. I mean, what could be more boring than an undistinguished looking off-white box that sits In the comer of the room making beeping noises?
When was the last time a computer did anything really practical? When was the last time you saw a computer doing the washing up or cooking the dinner, or making the beds? Eh?
All right, so I’m exaggerating a bit. Personally I think that computers are cool, but there are many people who think that computers are, by definition, tedious things that are of no practical use. There are also people who think that computers are the best thing since sliced bread and spend every working day Addling with them.
It’S rarely, if ever, that these two dlAerent types of people meet. If they did. What would they talk about? One would yawn widely and obviously while the other would happily rabbit away about how they managed to hack the Bank Of England and transfer the entire assets of the UK Government Into their name. I can't honestly see much chance of them really getting on.
Personally. I think that both sides of this particular divide are talking complete and utter tosh. The simple fact of Computers are simply tools, like a crowbar or a spade.
Eucept you can’t dig your garden uiith a computer.
The matter Is that computers are tools. They aren't the answer to all mankind's problems or the spawn of Beelzebub, the master of the Stygian pits of hell. Mankind is not going to be pushed Into a whole new era by the next big thing In communications technology (the Internet. In case you hadn't guessed). Computers are simply tools, like a crowbar or a garden spade. Except that you can't dig your garden with your Amiga. Well. I suppose you could, but you’d probably have a few problems playing Sturrf Car Racer afterwards, what with all the bulbs lodged In the disk drive and the Aower bed you'd
Just planted in your FPU.
Of course, computers are more Hexlble tools than most.
I can't think of any other types of tool which can do so many things, from playing some stonking games to settling your home accounts. It Is probably this flexibility which causes people to become obsessed with their computers. Once you understand the basics of programming and the like, you can write your own programs to do all manner of weird and wonderful things. Personally I'm not really Into programming but I can see the attraction.
Houieuer, I really do get worried when I see people getting obsessed with computers. Most of the programmers I know are well-balanced human beings (well, reasonably well balanced), but there are some I've come across who seem to have gone over the edge. My message to them Is: lighten upl Turn off your machine and go for a walk! Go out and hug a tree or something! It's only a machine, fer gawds sakel It's not as Important as the real world!

Booster month for CD3* It’s been a tremendous month for the CD32 with details of a new, improved SX-1 unit a new product from Premier Developments and a new Amitek CD32 bundle featuring seven major titles for less than £200.
Paravision have revised the design of the SX-1 expansion module because it could be unstable if moved or knocked and has poor casing design - when the lid of the CD player is fully extended the SX-1 moves and in extreme cases shorts out the console. The problem occurred due to the build of the SX-1 being around Smm too wide. Without resorting to a press release or public announcement Paravision have quietly fixed the problem.
Now the only obstacle to the SX-1 being the ultimate CD32 peripheral is the question of the CD32 power supply.
Because it was designed to power the FMV cartridge and the CD32 only, supply problems can occur when extra disk drives and hard drives are attached. Some Amiga Format readers have experienced trouble already. For more information, contact ZCL on 01543 25127S.
BUILDING ON THE success of the CD32, Premier Developments have released a self-assembly flat-pack Combi-Centre aimed at CD32 owners with an SX-1. Priced at £49.99, the Premier unit is designed to keep the CD32 console, SX-1, monitor, keyboard, disk drive, and other peripherals together as a tidy, attractive and integral unit.
ONE TO REMEMBER ProCD of Danvers Massachusetts is challenging British Telecom's right to copyright its listings of British telephone numbers.

THE BEST NEWS of all this month is that the Amitek have dropped the price of their popular seven-disc CD32 bundle by £40 from £239 to £199.
Rebadged as the Amitek Amiga CD32 Critical Zone pack, the whole caboodle comes bundled with: Cannon Fodder, Diggers, Liberation, Microcosm, Oscar, Project-X and Ultimate Body Blows.
Repackaged by Amitek and sold on by Silica, John Gilbert, Silica's press spokesman said: "The Amitek Critical Zone pack is already a best seller. Its new low price confirms the CD32'* status as a console with a long-term future."
Silica can be contacted on 0181 309 1111.
With the failure of prospective console smash, NBA Jam, to reach projected sales targets, game publishers are reappraising their whole approach to the market.
CYNICAL The recent Monopolies And Mergers Commission report on the restrictive and overpricing practices of Sega and Nintendo, has caused growing discontent among console owners. Consequently, sales are depressed. Some cynical pundits are already lauding the death of the console videogame.
“Innovation, courage and conviction, such as that shown by Codemasters in the past and now will be needed to inject new life and belief into the 16-bit videogame market," opined an industry insider.
Amiga Format believes that if the speculation over the Codemasters cartridge serial link proves founded, the consolidation of different hardware platforms through game links could be the boost that a games market faced with the onslaught of 'new generation' consoles needs in order to maintain its strength.
Les Ellis of top-selling multi-platform gaming magazine, GamesMasterwe 1 comed the concept of a Mega Drive serial link.
“This concept is tremendous. It means that anyone with a Mega Drive could go round to their Amiga-owning mate's house and have terrific fun," he enthused.
At the time of going to press, Richard Darling, managing director and cofounder of Codemasters, was unavailable for comment.
CD Vision have announced the release of five cull movies from the Redemption catalogue for use with a CD32 with a Full Motion Video unit.
The movies are: Female Vampire, Fascination. Flavia The Heretic, Haxan, Tender and Perverse Emmanuelle.
With 70 titles already in its catalogue.
Vision see the tie up with Redemption as, "...further evidence of our commitment to Video CD as a format."

Ocean and Team 17 are set to market and distribute some nine, cross-platform titles over the next few months and the deal should ensure that all the games will be given a high marketing profile .
Team 17's media manager Alan Bunker reckons thus. "This is a fantastic opportunity for two ambitious companies to work hand-in-hand, creating games for everyone, everywhere.
NEW PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE FOR AMIGA Grange Technology Limited have announced a new implementation of their OT-Prolog programming language. Designed to be used with all Amigas. QT-Prolog is a full implementation of the Prolog language used by industry and academia for research in the fields of Symbolic Programming and Artificial Intelligence. Look forward to a full review in a future Amiga Format. For more information, GTL can be contacted on 0123S 851818.
Jack in to Cyberjack Once again, the Amiga is at the cutting edge of film special FX technology.
Cyberjack's plot revolves around a luddite-ish cyber techno terrorists intent ridding the world of the evil influence of computer networks by wiping them out potent virus Out to stop the nasty bunch hard-bitten future cop Among the Amiga-generated images cityscapcs and vehicles. The heavy power used included an A4000 040 with Engine and a Raptor Plus rendering 128Mb of RAM.
The majority of the images were a resolution of 2,048x1,234 and they took approximately three to four minutes each render A typical image was created using over 15,000 polygons.
Look out for Cyberjack which will be on general release soon.

Flying high with Videopilot Ambervane have announced a £300 drop in retail price for the Videopilot V330 computer controlled edit controller.
Reviewed in the February 1995 edition of Amiga Format where it earned an excellent 85 per cent, the unit cost pennies short of a cool thousand pounds.
Citing “improved manufacturing techniques" as the reason for the reduction in price, the unit will now set back would-be computer editors a more reasonable £699 inclusive of VAT.
As well as the price drop, V3i, makers of the Videopilot edit controller, have announced a specialised software module which enables their V330 edit controller to provide two-frame animation in conjunction with Sony EV-S9000E and EV- 2000E VCRs.
Support is provided for manual and automatic modes, making the system n aiD Now multi-VCR computer editing will be available for all at a more affordable price.
Ideal for applications such as cartoon and character animation, time lapse recording, sc ientific process observation and security monitoring.

A surcharge of £ 10 is required on a Saturday.RJk Mainland) Some people would argue strenuously with me on this point, but I think using Amigas in music is a brilliant thing. Being able to play, construct and manipulate sounds and musical ideas on an Amiga has opened up the world of music and pushed the boundaries further
than anything else.
Electronic instruments can produce sounds like nothing else on Earth and if you've got brilliant ideas for music you’re no longer limited by having to learn a particular instrument lo produce the required results.
Iulelo Bars&Pipes Professional is a powerful, but complex sequencing program. Future Music's Maff Evans covers basic techniques and explores the wide world of MIDI to get you started in sequencing.
Using a sequencer anti some synthesizer equipment, you can either produce lilting melodies, thumping dance tracks or huge, powerful orchestral pieces.
Just think what Mozart could have produced if he'd had an Amiga.
In fact, many composers never heard their music played as they originally envisaged. The logistics and cost of setting up a full orchestra meant that only rich composers or those working for the nobility could actually get their material YOUR FIRST SONG Ithe first thing to do is set up the track for recording. Load Bars&Pipes and make sure that there are MIDI In and Out ports on each track. If not, double-click on the Toolbox icon to open the window and select Load from the File menu. Go to the Tools drawer and select MIDI In. Repeat the process for MIDI Out. Drag the Input icon to the left
pipe and the Output to the right for each channel.
Doing this means that MIDI signals will flow through the tracks.
2 Select a nice, fluid pad sound on channel one of your synth. Go to the first track in the Tracks window. Move the pointer to the channel square on the right of the pipeline, hold down the left mouse button and drag to Select 1. Make sure that the tap is blue (if not dick on it until it is) and activate the track so that there is a red arrow in the grey square to the left and the track turns from grey to white.
3 Click on the letter at the end of the input pipe to make sure that it reads R. Open the Metronome window and select Internal before closing it again. Open the Transport window and click on R to go into record mode. Play a few long chords (one or two bars long) to work out a tune, then, when you're ready, click on the Play From Start button in the transport window. After a two-bar count in, play your nice chords. When you've finished, click on Stop.

- tc; :i l -L 6 If you hit any wrong notes, use the hand or the
eraser controls to (respectively) drag notes to the right pitch
or delete them. If the velocities of your notes (how hard they
were played) is a bit skewiff, select the wand control and move
down to the bottom of the Edit window with the slider on the
right. Now draw a line across the vertical velocity lines to
flatten them out. When you're done, close the window with the
close gadget.
4 Now it's time to correct any... erm... well, let's say timing errors. Open the Toolbox and select Load from the menu. Select Quantize from the list and click on Load. Once it has loaded, drag the Quantize tool from the Toolbox to the Toolpad in the control strip of the Tracks window. Now it's time to apply the tool to the track. Make sure that the Quantize tool is in the square and the track is selected (white). Go to the Edit menu and select Toolize. The timing should now be spot on.
Played. If classical composers had access to the music equipment of today you can bet they’d be right there in the studio.
Fortunately, the technology is now available to everyone (and it's getting cheaper all the time), so anybody with an Amiga can get into writing pro-sounding material. Don't worry about whether you can’t play an instrument, it's just the ideas that count. Get stuck into the tutorial at the bottom of the page and the MIDI section and you’ll be away. Think about it: what else is the Aphex Twin if not the Mozart of the electronic age?
SETTING UP BARS&PIPES Before loading up Ban&Bi tes, make sure you've got everything set up properly. If you're just using Amiga samples, plug your Amiga's sound output into your hi-fi, making sure that you are playing back the sound in mono (either switch to mono 011 your hi-fi or use a Ycable). This makes your music sound better than playing through small monitor or TV speakers.
Connecting MIDI devices takes a bit more effort. For a start, you need a MIDI interface (which, if you’ve done any MIDI programming, you should have already). If you're just using a single mullitimbral sound module (one that can play different sounds on different MIDI channels at the same time), simply connect a MIDI cable from the MIDI Out of your interface to the MIDI In of your tone module. If you're using a keyboard, you also need lo connect a cable from the MIDI Out of the keyboard to the MIDI In of your interface.
If you've got more MIDI equipment, things are a little more complicated. If your MIDI interface has more output sockets, then simply connect them to the MIDI Ins of your gear. If. On the other hand, you only have one output, you'll have to daisy-chain the gear. This involves taking the MIDI Out from your interface Continued overleaf • 5 Double-click on the white track area (which should now have blue dashes on it) to open the Edit window. Go to the Show menu and deselect Staff-Hybrid to make it easier to see the effect of edits. If you prefer music notation, you've got the option to use that
later on. If you can't see any notes, select Note Range- Piano Roll Bounds from the Display Options menu and change the settings to increase the range. Click on the tiny black note to zoom out so you can see all notes in your sequence.

0333 335EC i_l XTT Playing back internal Amiga samples with Bar&Pipes Professional is carried out in the same way as with MIDI apart from one major difference - the AMIGAphone tool. This has to be placed in the output pipeline of any track on which you want to use samples (it drops into the pipe in place of the MIDI Out tool).
To use it go to the Toolbox and load AMIGAphone. Drag it to a track on which you want to use samples and drop it in on the right-hand side. Now double-click on it to open the Options window.
This can be left open for editing as you work. It's a good idea to have the Edit window for the track in question open so that you can play it back to see what effect your changes will make to the AMIGAphone settings. Here's a rundown of the controls: IFF Sanple:_____ THE AMIGAPHONE Track 1 Octaves: JiT 2 3 QEH3B 8 T I Transposes the sample's tuning by a specific musical amount. Drag the slider sideways to select a new value.
Modulate ! Alters the base octave for a sample. Note that the Octave Shift still has to fall within the range specified by Octaves: above.
Octave Shift: ! Determines how much a given note will change when the pitch bend messages are used.
Pitch Bend: !Sets the speed of vibrato to be used when modulation messages are used.
Vibrato Rate: to one piece of gear, then connecting the MIDI Thru of each piece of equipment to the MIDI In of the next. Some people claim this causes delays and errors, but with new gear, this isn't a problem. Once everything is set up. You're ready to go.
THE MIDI STANDARD In the early days of synthesizers, connecting machines together proved quite a headache. Most equipment required Controlled Voltage (varying levels of electricity) signals to be- played from one piece of gear to another, since most synths used voltages to determine the pitch, filter and envelope amounts.
Getting things to play in time was even more of a headache, due to the confusing Gate system, which seemed to vary wildly from one machine to another. To get CREATING A DRUM PATTERN Igo to the Toolbox and drag the Quantize tool to the input pipe of the second track. Click on the grey square on the left of the pipeline to activate the track, then dick on the mode square of track 1 to select P and track 2 to select R. Change the channel (the box on the right) to 10 and then select a drum kit on your synthesizer. Work out a drum pattern to complement your chords.
!This shows the sample currently selected.
Every time you load a new sample with the New button, it's added to a list which is accessed by pointing to the name and dragging up and down.
IFF Sanple: Brings up a requester for loading a new sample. These have to be m IFF samples - Raw and Sonix format samples can't be loaded.
Jthis shows the octaves that ¦the sample will play in. It depends on how the original sound was saved and CANT be edited in Bars&Pipes.
Octaves: ¦ Low-fidelity plays samples lat a slower rate than hi-fidelity, thus giving a lower sound quality (useful for using longer sounds without wasting memory).
Fidelity: ] Adjust the pitch of a ] sample by small amounts to keep it in tune with the rest of your instruments.
Fine Tune (Determines by how much to ‘wobble’ the notes when modulation messages are used.
Vibrato Depth: Ithis value shows how much to respond to velocity data (the higher the number, the more velocity determines the volume of the note).
Enphasis: !How long it takes before the sound reaches its maximum volume (a high Attack number gives you a slow fade-up to full volume while a lower number causes an instant start to the tune).
Attack: Ihow long a note takes to fade to off. This only works with long sounds or looped samples, because short percussive sounds cut off quickly anyway.
Release: I The basic volume of a sample. The velocity still controls a fair proportion of the volume if the Emphasis: setting is high.
Volune CREATING A BASSLINE 1 Click on the grey square to the left of track 5 to activate it and select a channel for a bass sound on your synth. Doubleclick on the track area to open the Edit window and go to the blue note in the control strip. Hold down the left mouse button and drag to select 16th notes. Click on the Pencil tool and start to enter notes by clicking in the piano area. Enter a bassline for the first bar which is on the same note as the bottom note in your chord. Close the window when you're done.
Around this problem, a number ol Japanese and American companies got together to provide a standard way of enabling svnihs and drum machines to talk lo each other. The result was the Musical Instrument Digital Interface, or MIDI.
MIDI came along just as digital synths were becoming popular. The advent of computer technology meant that computer messages could be sent along wires instead of unreliable voltages. The MIDI designers formulated a list of control codes and parameters to enable standard messages to Ik- formed from numeric signals (for example, a certain hex code stands for a Note On message, with associated data bytes for deciding the pitch and velocity).
Using MIDI messages, notes could be directly triggered on one piece of equipment from another, data could be dumped for storage and timing could be kept rock solid. Standard MIDI is serial data sent over 16 channels (each independent from the others like channels on a TV), but special interfaces and sequencers can add extra banks of MIDI channels.
MIDI message types basically break down into timing messages, notes, position and continuous controllers for bending the pitch or adding expression.
Oser the years, amendments and additions have been made to MIDI, including MIDI Time Code (MTC) for more standard synching. MIDI Machine Control (MMC) which enables you to control tape recorders directly from your controlling sequencer and MIDI sample dumps, for transferring digital samples between different pieces of equipment.
But it's not only sound sources which can be controlled by MIDI. Just about every new piece of electronic music gear has MIDI ports on the back.
Effects units (boxes which add stuff like chorus, echo, reverb and phasing to a sound) can Ik- hooked up so that you can call up new effects from your sequencer or keyboard or even change parameters as part of a song, for example increasing the depth of an echo in real time. Tape recorders can even Ik- controlled by MIDI, with the controls triggered by the icons on a sequencer and the tape sending a limecode for making all your computer sequences plav in time with a tape.
Perhaps the most significant development is General MIDI (GM). This Continued overleaf 2 Click on R in the Transport window, then click on the Play From Start button. After a two-bar count in, play the kick drum part of your drum pattern. You only have to enter a couple of bars, because it can be copied later. Now repeat these steps for the third track in the list and record the hi-hat pattern for a couple of bars. If you find that the Quantize tool is correcting your notes too harshly, double-click on the tool in the pipeline and change the resolution to a smaller note.
3 Complete the raw tracks for your drums, repeating the processes outlined above and recording the snares on track 3. If there are any duff notes or you want to change the velocities of any hits, open the Edit window by double-clicking on the relevant track and carry out changes. Note that if you only want to change the velocity of a single note, you can use the Pencil tool.
4 Double-click on the Song Construction tool to open its window and select the duplicate and bounding tools (fourth and seventh in the row).
Drag a box around the squares that show your drum tracks (they should be tracks 2. 3 and 4), then drag them across the grid to drop them after the original recording. Repeat the process until the drums play for the same length of time as your chords. Now play back and your chords should have a nice rhythm backing.
3 -T a 2 Go back to the Song Construction window and use the duplicate tool to make copies of the bassline to reach to the end of the rest of your tracks. If you play back this sequence, it will ail sound out of tune (apart from the first bar). This is because the bassline is just repeating the notes from the first pattern you entered. We need to transpose these to get them to follow the chords.
3 Go back to the Tracks window and double-click on the bassline track to open the Edit window.
Use the triangle (next to the front and back gadgets) to open the window fully. Select the Hand and Box tools and box in the first section of bass notes to be moved (the ones that play over the second chord in your song). Drag them up or down until they play the bottom note of your 2nd chord.
4 Often the temptation is to stick a bassline in which is just too low and booming. Experiment with different octaves using the following method.
Go to the Toolbox and load the Transpose tool. Now drag this to the output pipe of track 5 and doubleclick on it to open it. Alter the Octave reading and listen to the results.
is a particular set of specifications to make playing sequences on different pieces of gear easier. The first factor is that a piece of GV1 gear must have 24-voice polyphony - that is it must be able to play 24 single notes at once.
The 128 sounds defined as the G soundset must also be in a specific order, otherwise your lovely guitar riff will end up plating on the bagpipes. It's worth remembering that drums are always on channel 10.
Synth company Yamaha has just released a new sound module which uses an extended version of General MIDI called XG. So exciting and groundbreaking things are always happening in electronic music. Get yourself tooled up and you could be part of it.
MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE To get into the nitty-gritty of MIDI, it helps to know the structure of MIDI sequences. I don't mean you have to know what all the codes are - you only need to get into that if you're programming with MIDI. A grasp of the basic message types and how they work is all you need.
Notes MIDI notes are actually controlled using two messages - a Note On and a Note Off These tell a piece of gear when to start and stop playing a note. Some sequencers specify1 the duration of a note, but the MIDI data stays the same. Along with the pitch of a note, each Note message also includes a number giving the velocity (how hard a note was played), ranging from zero to 127. I bis usually determines how loud a note will sound, but can control any aspect of a sound depending on the synth.
Program changes MIDI defines programs as individual stored sounds (or an equivalent collection of parameters such as an effect on an effects unit). Using Program Change messages, you can call up a new sound directly from your sequencer. General MIDI has all its programs in the same order, so that calling tip a piano sound on one piece of GM gear will call up the same sound on any other.
Continuous controllers These control such things as pitch bend, volume and modulation. They're called continuous controllers because they are usually recorded and played back in a long stream as opposed to single, one-off messages such as notes. This is because pitch bend, volume and so forth need to change smoothly. It's no good having a lush fade in if the volume jumps from one level to the next.
FUTURE MUSIC Don't forget that if you want to find out more about electronic music, there's a whole magazine dedicated to making music with computers. Amiga Formats sister magazine Future Music carries all the latest product reviews and buying advice on all the new releases as well as tips, advice, help and hints.
Issue 30 features the first part in a major series dedicated to sampling - including advice on new techniques and how to improve your performance. Future Music costs just £3.50 and comes complete with a covermounted CD.
Sysex Sysex is SYStem Exclusive data. This enables you to dump all the settings from your synth via MIDI and store it on your computer (using an editor or a librarian program). The name is derived from the fact that each synth stores sound settings in a different way. The formal for the data states the manufacturer’s ID code and then organises the data according to the storage structure of the synth itself.
Each end of the system must know the other is there so that the data is stored properly (after all, there’s probably quite a lot of it). This data can then be dumped back on to your synth later - useful if you're running out of places to store new sounds on your synth.
STARS WITH STRIPES You may be confused about the terms 'striping', timecode', 'frames' and 'SMPrE’ which are bandied around. Don't worry, it's not that technical. This is all to do with a system of locking the timing of various machines together (especially when working with video).
SMPTE stands for Society Of Motion Picture And Television Engineers and is the name given for the code the TV, movie and music industry puts on to tapes to control the playback timing of machines.
The code splits into hours, minutes, seconds and frames. This is linked to the number of frames on film (24 per second), since you only need to be accurate down to a single frame of a film to play stuff in time with the image.
To use the system, the timecode (the SMPTE signal itself) is recorded on to a tape (either as control information on a professional video or a spare track on a professional muldtrack audio tape). When the tape is then played, it sends out the SMPTE signal to tell other bits of gear exactly where on the tape it is.
If you've got a SMPTE box plugged into your sequencer, the program can then look to the SMPTE code to make sure that the sequence playing back is at the same point as the tape.
Btm&Pipes enables you to arrange data and match timing using SMPTE time representations as well as the usual musical bars, beats and clicks (1 192 of a second).
This enables you to cue sound effects and music start and stop points exacdy at the right time - absolutely essential for adding material to video. © RECOMMENDED EQUIPMENT If you're making do with sampled sounds from your Amiga, you're not really getting the best results from Bars&Pipes Professional. To achieve top-quality sounds you'll need to get hold of some MIDI gear.
The first thing you need to buy is a MIDI interface which are relatively cheap nowadays. Next you need some kind of sound source. The cheapest way of doing this is to buy a tone module. These start from the £225 Yamaha MUS (which is decent enough, if a little basic). Korg's 05R W is an excellent module, with superb sounds and an easy-to-use control system for £599. Moving up a price bracket Roland's JV-1080 is arguably the best synth module currently available, with 64-voice polyphony and hundreds of sounds for a slightly more expensive £1,085.
The Roland JV-1080 is one of the best synth modules available - with a price to match.
If you want something with a keyboard attached, a keyboard incarnation of the 05RJW is available in the shape of the £799 X5 (which scored 90 per cent in Amiga Formats sister magazine, Future Music). At a more expensive level is the Alesis Quadrasynth, a superb-sounding 64-voice synth with 76 keys for £1,099.
If you like the flexibility of using samples, you could get a dedicated rack-mount sampler. E-mu's ESI-32 is an excellent machine (£1,199), as is the Akai S2.800 (£1,299). At the top of the range is the stonkingly powerful E-mu Emulator IV, with 128-voice polyphony and a maximum RAM of 128Mb (wow), but it costs a whopping £4.800. Time to start saving, then.

The future of videogaming 64 There are lots of mi non Ha thin alone! But, it takes two to tango. 99 LOST OPPORTUNITIES Considering that Hunter Killer was the first ever home computer link game, you'd have thought that the submarine cat and mouse scenario would have been better exploited and expanded on by now. Subwar 2050was released by Microprose at almost the same time on the PC and Amiga. We awarded it 84 per cent in AF67- the main criticism barring it from a prestigious Gold award being that it didn't include a link option. The ability to send out dummy robot- controlled subs as tactical
decoys could have turned the game into the sport of champions. But, alas and alack, it was not to be.
Where's the vision? So many opportunities for top serial link entertainment have been missed unnecessarily.
It seems that we're going to have to rely on visionaries such as Acid Software and Team 17 to produce the games that innovative, socialised gamers require and demand. Imagine the selling power and potential of an A1200 Super Skidmarks 2 and Alien Breed 3D serial link bundle. Especially if the A1200 was beefed up with a 68030 processor, 4Mb of RAM and two serial ports as standard.
We broke the exclusive news last month. Super Skidmarks 2 is the first simultaneous eight-player game to appear on the Amiga.
Achieving this sublimely innovative state is simple. Link two Amigas through the serial port, park two monitors beside each other, ensure that everyone is sitting or standing safely, and RACE! Truly, multi-player gaming is the future of videogaming.
With the Amiga, that future was here yesterday, it's here today, and judging by the impact of Super Skidmarks 2 in the Format office it’s going to be here for lots and lots of tomorrows.
So what are serial link games all about and why do they generate so much excitement in people who play them? As with all the best ideas, it's simple really.
All that's required is compatible software, two Amigas and a null-modern lead. Then, the Amigas will happily talk to one another. In the case of a game such as Knights Of The Sky, this communication consists of co-ordinate data concerning the orientation, direction, and placing of objects, such as an opponent's plane.
And collision detection; if the bullets have hit the enemy plane, and if so, has that information been passed on? It's that simple. Or that complex, depending on the criteria to be fulfilled by the game's parameters.
Most surprising is the small number of Amiga owners aware of the potential for fun and sport.
"Multi-player games are the future of videogaming," claims Peter Molyneux of Bullfrog. When Bullfrog games are developed, the serial link option is put in first. "That's how Populous was developed. It lets us gauge the ability of each player and makes it easier to decide on the toughness of the computer's artificial intelligence routines," he adds.
It's not quite clear why more women don't play computer games. Research hasn't been conclusive but several theories have been put forward ranging from the outrageously sexist, to the plainly ridiculous.
The most plausible reason is that computer gaming is generally perceived as a solitary, obsessive, male geek affair. And women, more so than men, tend to prefer communicating about things that don't involve computer games.
But the reason women don't play computer games is certainly not because they're less competitive by nature. Introduce your mother, sister, wife, fiancee or girlfriend to a game such as Lotus 2. Let them practice until they achieve proficiency and then challenge them to a race. Watch several cultural inference sociological power complex theories dissolve as you find yourself crumbling underneath the weight of their new-found skills.
And don't accept any excuses for defeat. Computer games are a neutral medium that don't rely on any particular attribute peculiar to men. If you beat them, it's because they’re crap. So rub it in.
After such a promising start, he started collecting linked games. His circle of friends increased and apparently he's getting shagged every day by excited hot chicks with long legs, big tits and enormous Iqs. Those serial links eh?
Hopefully, after taking a look at the various boxouts dotted around this feature, you'll be champing at the bit to get connected and get playing. If you haven't already indulged in the sublime world of linked games, check out the box that shows you how to make a cable for yourself. Grab a compatible game - Stunt Car Racer is as good a start as any - and get competing.
It's also worth bearing in mind that Super Skidmarks 2 is out there, in the shops, right now, waiting. Alien Breed 3D is coming to an Amiga near you soon. Details are scant, but it looks as if there may be a split-screen option which means that four people will be able to compete on the link.
Remember, consumer power is only ignored by companies suffering from marketing myopia or PC market blindness. Multi-player link games fire the imagination and competitive instincts of all who play them. Even the previously unconvinced. Show the software houses it was no accident that Amiga games were the biggest sellers last Christmas. And with more serial link games that market can only get bigger.
The last word goes to Mark Sibly from Acid Software: "The future of games lies in the direction of multiplayer experiences We're not the sort of types that go home and play games in our bedrooms by ourselves. We like the ego involved with competing against other humans..." Truly, that is the future of videogames. Amiga owners IN THE BEGINNING Hunter Killer by Protek on the ZX Spectrum was the first home computer game to feature a serial link. And at the time H was truly revolutionary. Realised by plugging two Interface One's (a peripheral that let the Spectrum control Sinclair Micro Drives)
into a couple of Sped rums respectively, Hunter Killer hinted at the potential of what was to come.
The player controlled a World War 2 submarine placed about 20 miles away from the opponent's sub. Tracking the movements of the other sub with sonar and then blowing the enemy out of the water was the order of the day. Although tricky and incredibly buggy (the subs only travelled at about 12 knots max and sometimes when closing on the opponent, the game would inexplicably crash) the tension undergone while hunting and fighting was incredible. To win, all of the classic submarine manoeuvres had to be engaged in; clearing the baffles and ’grey knuckling' lor example.
A true classic in every sense of the word and a game that should go down in the annals of gaming history.
MAY 1995 But the artificial intelligence routines aren't needed when playing against a friend. While I was working in the retail side of the industry a few years back, one of our regular customers asked us to make him a 25-metre serial link cable.
Naturally enough, we asked why he wanted such a long cable. The answer was simple. After talking to us about link games, he decided that he wanted to play Populous against his Amiga-owning friend who lived next door.
Their bedroom windows faced each other and he had worked out that 25 metres would be long enough for the cable to link up both of their Amigas.
¦ We're not the sorts of people who go home and play games in our bedrooms by ourselves.
Mark Sibley, Acid «¦ Top 10 Link Games Lotus Turbo Challenge: Two, three or four players can compete against one another. If only two choose to compete, the screen isn't split meaning that you can't take furtive, sneaky glances at the opponent's position.
MARKETING MYOPIA It's every marketer's dream to stumble on an USP (Unique Selling Proposition) and a rich potential market - a niche in an already well-established market that's going through a rough patch at the moment. Amiga serial link games would seem to fulfil those requirements, so why aren't there more of them?
Claims have been made that the market isn't there - ”... they've never caught on because most people only have access to one Amiga," said Jon Hare of Sensible Software. But that isn't true any more. For instance, most houses in Britain have a second television of some kind, usually a portable.
Round about 50 per cent of Amiga owners also own a monitor.
Buying another Amiga isn't going to set you back a great deal of money - second-hand A500s can be snapped up for around £100. Think of it as another peripheral, if need be, but think of it as a purchase that will greatly enhance your present home entertainment set-up.
And competition is supposed to be soothing for the soul. The character of the fellow competitors shines through while they compete. Styles are developed, strategies decided on, tactics adopted.
Now, it might seem like we're being overly grand, but where, for the price, are you going to find such wholesomely gratifying entertainment, a virtually real journey into the performance envelope of your competitive instincts? Not many places we'll wager.
Linking between an A1200 and an A500 or A600 is perfectly possible and definitely recommended.
Super Skidmarks 2: The most innovative use of the link so far. With two linked monitors placed together to form a panoramic view of the racing track, the full complement of eight cars can all be controlled by individual players. The best fun you'll have in a time period that's longer than a very long time. Alternatively, up to six players can race against each other using the split-screen option - three players to each Amiga. Tremendous.
Linking an A1200 with an A500 or A600 is actively encouraged, although you're limited to using Lo-Res and four cars, but hey even that's the bee's knees. Check it out.
THE ARCADE EXPERIENCE Walk into any up-to-date arcade, and you'll be struck by the number of machines that are connected to one another. Daytona, Virtua Racer, Cybersled, Steel Talons and Suzuka Eight Hours to name but a few of the more popular ones.
Spend some time watching the faces of the people competing against each other - adrenalised excitement, fervour, concentration and intense competitiveness is etched in every expression. Even the people pretending that it's all a big joke, pretending they don't care whether they lose or win, grimace and curse when a mistake is made that endangers their current position.
If people have an in-built will to win, a desire to destroy, a hankering to humiliate their fellow man (or woman) at whatever game sport happens to be taking place at the time, link games give expression to those urges. Ask the manager of the Trocadero in London which games bring in the most money. He'll point to the rows of machines that let people compete against each other, and then he'll rub his hands together.
Knights Of The Sky Probably my favourite serial link game of all time.
Although now it's probably more like equal first with the new Super Skidmarks 2.
The planes are slow enough to remain in the enemy's sights throughout the game, unlike with jet fighters where you can seemingly, and almost anonymously, take out an enemy from several hundred miles away.
Odds can be evened and ace flyers handicapped by giving them crap planes, and due to the ability to land on an airfield and re-arm and repair the plane, truly gargantuan ace-to-ace battles can take ages. Bandits at 12 O'clock Ginger.
A1200s and A500s can talk to each other, although the A1200 slows down to the A500s slower speed.
Falcon: Sadly not available for purchase any more, Falcon could be played between an Amiga, an ST, or a Macintosh. The PC wasn't included because Pcs weren't good enough to handle the number of colours and the speed of the game.
Not as much fun as Knights Of The Sky on the link due to the lack of actual dogfighting taking place. It's all Electronic Counter Measures and Fire And Forget weaponry, but nevertheless, it's perhaps the ultimate combat arena to step into. At least 7,000 hardened veterans regularly play Falcon on subscriber-only multi-player game network FighterNet in America.
Stunt Car Racer: The first 16-bit linked race game I ever played. Caters for two players at a time only. But using the leagues and the league tables, you can have up to 16 human drivers striving for dominance.
Wild, wacky and weird, A Stunt Car Racer session is worth organising a party around. Special prizes for the outright winner and small prizes for the holders of the best lap time.
Top linking fun too. Best played between two A 1200s for the increased running speed, Slunl Car Racer is one of the most versatile linkers.
A500s, A600s, Atari Sts and Atari Falcons can all talk to each other. So, if you happen to have 50 pence and four fruit salads available, try and get hold of a second-hand ST. Unfortunately, this means that you'll need two copies of the game. But that's a small price to pay for such a rewarding experience THE THINGS PEOPLE DO One of the most fascinating aspects of an eight-player game of Super Skidmarks 2 is the temporary relationships struck up between players. Several journos from Future magazines dotted around the computing division took part.
Most of the conversation can't be repeated here. But if I had a quid for every time I was called a "Scots git" I'd retire tomorrow.
One memorable occasion witnessed a competitor from a sister games magazine with 'brattitude', call me a "vicious Scots b*‘!!&d!" Or euphemistically speaking, an inspired Caledonian of superior driving quality and illegitimate parentage - untrue and dangerously libellous. All that from an opponent who is allegedly an anti-racist liberal. Tsk tsk, and eat my dust, loser.
The same 'liberal' conspired to help a fellow joumo win by waiting for me at the crossroads and bashing into my car. The return match awaits.
Tornado: More complicated and realistic than Falcon, this is for the true die-hard flight sim pilots out there.
Haven't played it much due to the mind boggling number of options that have to be attended to.
Gravity Force 2: Now there's no excuse for not at least trying out linked games to see what all the fuss is about. This was our Public Domain game of the month in AF70.
A Thrust Oids derivative, this is out- and-out combat with lots of top weapons to help you send your opponents to cyber hell. Glitches in the timing means that you have to use two like Amigas, that is two At 200s or two A500 600s.
Populous 2: The ultimate god game earned itself 95 per cent in AF30. There's something worryingly more gratifying in the sure knowledge that you're killing someone else's followers rather than those of a mere computers.
With the full range of options available, this is truly a game of individual style, character and intellectual might. Populous 2 is best played in different rooms so you can't see what your opponent's doing - such is the urge to take a crafty look at what they are up to. In Itsibachi in Japan, tower block dwellers have Populous installed in multi-link consoles so that whole floors can play against each other.
Powermonger: A very similar, but even more aggressive experience than Populous 2, Powermonger satiates a lust for death and destruction that can only legally be indulged through the medium of the Amiga.
Vroom: This excellent racing game isn't available any more (so keep your eyes peeled for a second-hand copy), but reincarnation does exist in the form of Ft For some inexplicable reason the link was taken out of F1. To compensate, a split-screen option was put in instead.
Close to Skidmarks for thrills. Linking it would mean that four players could participate How about it Domark?
¦ At least 7,000 hardened veterans play Falcon on the FighterNet network in America.
CROSS PLATFORM SHENANIGANS It's not only Amiga-specific games that can be played on the link. The crux of the matter is the serial data swapped between both machines. In effect, the games can be played on independent platforms. For example, the first link games I played on the Amiga were Falcon and Stunt Car Racer. But I didn't own two Amigas. So how did I do it? Simple.
Well, one of the machines was an Atari ST. OK, so you had to put up with lousy sound from the ST, but the intensity of competition between two players was phenomenal. It also increased the number of available doors in my search for like-minded individuals against whom I could pit my driving and flying abilities.
The potential even exists of linking up with Pcs. Or what about linking with the consoles? If you take a look at our news pages, you'll see that Codemasters are showing an interest in publishing Super Skidmarks 2 on the Mega Drive.
Given Codemasters' track record for hardware innovations and their belief that multi-player games are, "the way forward" why not build in a serial port so that Mega Drive links can be made?

SCREENPLAY MAY 1995 OPTIONS GOME MODE: IP PI CONTROL: I PS CONTROL: u MUSIC: ON RSSMORO: 7 7'7?7 7 7 V:O.OS Previews VIROCOP Renegade 0171 391 4300 Graftgold's last Amiga game was the woefully underrated Empire Soccer, officially the SECOND BEST ARCADE FOOTBALL GAME EVER. They've also written some of the best Amiga games ever including Uridium 2, Fire And Ice and Rainbow Islands and the team includes one of the few well-known games writers, Andy Braybrook, a man an ex-Amiga Formal editor once accused of killing pop music.
Graftgold's latest game is Virocop, a forced-perspective 3D platform-cum shoot-em-up (Chaos Engine-style).
Pop axeman Braybrook explains. "When we first started on Virocop in July ’93 it was originally going to be a tank game but the programmer left, another one came along and things changed. We generally design games as we go along anyway so myself, John Kershaw and Steve Turner have all added bits here and there.
"We were originally going to call it
D. A.V.E. but then a film came out with the same name so we
decided against it. D.A.V.E. is the character and the letters
stand for Digital Armoured Virus Exterminator. The idea is
that there is a virtual holiday theme park called the GameDisk
and each vacation represents a different game genre.
Viruses have gotten into the genres and our D.A.V.E. chappie has to go in and eliminate them."
Rock's slayer, again. "We've put in four worlds - sport, platform, military and shoot-em-up and we've added a bonus adventure level for the A1200 version. The action relates to the particular game genre so on the sports level you may be wandering along a golf course and suddenly you come up to the edge of a snooker cushion - it's quite surreal. The viruses are sports- related so you might find yourself by a tennis machine or a baseball bat".
Virocop promises to be a blast.
Indeed, you can judge for yourself next month when we bring you a huge Coverdisk demo. You can't say fairer’ than that, although someone always does, just to be really funny.
There are a whole host of Amiga games in the pipeline. Stephen Bradley takes a look at the latest batch that he got his hands on... 4- ULTIMATE SOCCER MANAGER Daze Marketing 0171 372 7435 Two hundred years from now, when future folk dig up time capsules and fish out an old Amiga, they will cry, "blimey, that's the football management computer. Dozens of the games used to be released every month and people still bought them. And then the Great Bung Scandal of Summer '95 came, and football managers went underground, leaving a trail of cigar stubs, sheepskin coats, gold jewellry and cliches for
FA investigators to follow."
So, Andrew Prime of Impressions, programmer of Ultimate Soccer Manager, why another football management simulation? And will USM be more interesting than that other USM, the Unlisted Securities Market?
"Up to now there's been a definite element of reality missing from the matches in other football management games," said Andrew, Screens tend to be full of figures, and look more like spreadsheets than a football match.
This was our main motivation when we set about producing USM.
"We wanted to watch matches where you can see your players moving over the pitch, where your team is strong and where the opposition are dominating. We wanted to see a game where the manager is genuinely involved, watching the action and making decisions all the time - which directly affect the course of the match.
This is what we have done with USM."
The competition is strong, though.
Premier Manager 3 has been a major player in the past few months, Tactical Manager 2, Anco's Player Manager 2 and ANOTHER version of Championship Manager are doing, or are shortly to make the rounds. Is USM going to significantly differ from the midfield melee, Mr P?
"We have added some unique factors to USM to make it stand out. It is much better looking than other management games. It has the unique feature of showing your stadium and buildings grow as you spend more money and develop your ground. The matches themselves are far more involving than in other games and of course there is the matter of bungs, bribery and rigged matches. You won't find this in any other game."
Andrew claims Arsenal manager George Graham has been the inspiration in making USM. Andrew Prime is a Spurs fan. Publishers Daze Marketing will be 'Big Ronning’ for the opposition in the next month or so.
POWER HOUSE Daze Marketing 0171 372 7435 Impressions are best known for their strategy games and indeed, one of Afs most popular ever Coverdisk demos was their point 'n' clicksome car management game Detroit.
Their latest strategy game is Power House, an exercise in corporate global domination. You lead a large energy corporation (well, you will if you buy the game when it comes out), battling against three other giants in an attempt to create an enormous business empire without shafting the Earth. Negotiating, extracting, deploying teams of workers, leaning back in your leather chair with a satisfied grin - you name it, Power House has got it, apparently.
Expect to spot a box on a shelf in June with words Power and House on.

MAY 1995 SCREENPLAY OBSESSION Unique Development
(46) 11126620 (Sweden) Unique Development Sweden have gone two
further than Arcane in their pinball quest.
They've named the game Obsession AND released it on the ST (that's the Atari thing) to a perfectly glowing review and come May the Amiga conversion will be complete.
The A500 version has four tables: Aquatic Adventure (underwater antics, featuring Bobby Bubble), X-ile Zone (futuristic combat), Balls And Bats (baseball) and Desert Run (car rallying) and an A1200 upgrade will feature an extra table and multiball.
4- TURBO TRAX, CONAN THE CONQUEROR, THE PINBALL GAME WITH NO NAME Arcane Software 0181 656 7459 The heels of Team 17’s ATRand the quite remarkable Super Skidmarks 2 are hot, for Arcane Software are preparing to unleash Turbo Trax. A top-down viewed, titchy car racer. We were hoping to bring you a comprehensive review this month but the game is still going through the tweaking stage, so next month it shall be.
Twenty-five, apparently gruelling courses are included set over five terrain types (slippy ice, cities and deserts - you know the sort of thing) and there are five opponents to pit your wits against. Along the way, you can pick up coins and things on the track whereupon you can UPGRADE YOUR CAR. Now there's an idea. You can also drive over the turbos on the tracks (Turbo and Trax) which increase your speed considerably, although if one isn't careful one will find oneself off the track. Our test drive takes place shortly.
But Arcane are not only going racing, for they have both Conan The Conqueror and pinball stuffed up their sleeve, leaving no room for tissue should they snuffle unexpectedly. Some of you will no doubt know that the Hiburia Chronicles are the series of Conan books and apparently, knowing the novels could well help in your quest to complete the game should you choose to purchase it upon release.
The perspective is of the marvellously fashionable isometric 3D variety and it will be a bit like Darkmere where you wander around castles and dungeons looking muscular. Conan The Conqueror is the title and shelfbound it shall be in the merry month of May.
Arcane's pinballfest is presently without a title as is a helicopter game they're working on which I neglected to mention in the last paragraph. Oh, they're also doing a Bomber Man-style game, too. Anyway, to the Pinball Game With No Name. Four tables, optional split-screen multiball enabling you to see all the balls all the time ("you get and low-resolution screens, whirlpools, spinners, magnets, kickouts, captive balls - you name it, the Pinball Game With No Name reckons it will have it.
Whether it can take on the might of 21st Century's Pinball Illusions, only many hours spent pottering around with it in the AF office will tell.
FLIGHT OF THE AMAZON QUEEN Renegade 0171 391 4300 Flight Of The Amazon Queen panders not to the shoot-em-up genre, instead concentrating its strengths on the point 'n' click graphic adventure. Set in 1949, it enters the world of pilot, Toe King, and publishers Renegade claim it to be, "an irreverent pastiche of the adventure serials that were popular in the 1940s."
Included are some 100 locations and 40 other characters to catch up with as Toe attempts to thwart the evil Dr Frank Enstein (chuckle) and win the heart of the beautiful Princess.
FOTAO features a panoramic map screen and cut-away sequences to add that fine dramatic edge and should be in the shops shortly. We'll bring you a full review next month. Cj (EASY ACCESS FROM M62, Ml and the Ah M62H62I w _ ARMIEY___- | AMIGA REPAIR 1 TOTAL CENTRE A 6 4 7 VTAlfOF.

Quite an assertion, we know.
Especially when you bear in mind that Skid 2 could quite legitimately, albeit cynically, be considered a mere data disk expansion set of the original game.
Since the original earned an Amiga Format Gold in issue 55 (90%), several enhancements have been made, that ...whereas, with AGA machines you can have eight cars on screen at once. The hl-res screen also lets you see more ol the track.
Not only improve it cosmetically, but also improve the expansiveness of the gaming experience.
A500 and A600 owners can have four separate car types appear at the same time. For extra novelty, memory allowing, you can tow a caravan which radically affects the handling of the cars.
For extra convenience, allowance is made for a joystick adaptor to be plugged into the parallel port. This enables four people to play on joystick rather than relying on keys.
A rolling two. Three, or four-player game can be played, similar in style to the method used by ATR- it's the least satisfying way of playing head-to-head.
Two players can race using a split screen - a mechanism that lets four people play when a link between two Amigas is set up (see our Future Of Video Games feature on page 28).
And then there are the AGA enhancements, the immediate difference is the ability to use hi-res as standard and have eight cars on the track at any one time. This reveals more of the road and enables drivers to anticipate their approach to the next bend further in advance.
AGA machines can also split the screen three ways meaning that there are even more combinations of head-to- head player action when a link is used.
And then there's the feature that we broke the exclusive news about in last ¦ Super Skidmarks 2.
The best driving game in its class ever seen on the Amiga.

And if you want to link an A500 A600 to an A1200 it can be done. The 1200 will still display a hi-res screen. Tip top.
Finally, tha piece de resistance of two 1200s being linked together is the Super View mode.

And, just like real car racing, the driver is constantly forced to make micro decisions and act accordingly. It's through coping with and mastering this mentally dextrous work load that top drivers can enforce their will and superiority on hapless opponents by driving them into the dust.

implementation deserves to earn an honorary Knighthood. We’re
talking about the Super View mode - check out the boxout titled
A Super Panoramic View... This feature is excellent. Not only
can you race up to eight human opponents at the same time, you
also get to see everyone's overall position in the race at a
glance. Bloody brilliant.
What's more, it's refreshing to go up against opponents of comparable abilities. Truly tremendous road jousts take place. Drivers of similar skill and quality end up constantly jockeying with each other for position, overtaking and undertaking, jostling and jabbing away as they attempt to drive to the perfect line and the glory of victory.
But, not only is Skidmarks 2 terrific to take part in, it's magic to watch. You can passively absorb the styles of the other drivers and plan tactics to use against them in competition.
The best tactic when behind, and catching, is to actively learn the art of cutting up the car in front and handling the speed boost when the inevitable, unavoidable, impact occurs.

The Amiga Formal Mark 5 Fiat Panda is a reality Nobody knows the secret of that most elusive of all features in a game, gameplay. But in the next few weeks loads of Middlesex University students will be handing in theses on the advanced theory
of gameplay. Whether these theses explore the semiotic deconstruction of symbolic enactments embedded in the underlying nervous reflex of human machine interfaces inherent of the computer game medium, remains to be seen.
But one thing’s for sure. If ever a game was nigh on perfect, it's Super Skidmarks 2. It's all about control, skill, timing, aggression, instinct, confidence, belief, and most of all, ability. A completely social sport. A test of yourself against your friends and fellows. A sport that couldn't be realised through any medium other than a computer. It screams to be played by more than one person. It's where it's most alive and vibrant and happening and marketable. No surprise then that it appeared on the Amiga first.
A positive benefit of the game is the insight you gain into the character of opponents under competitive duress.
Acid deserve to be rewarded for bringing such a playable enjoyable experience to the Amiga first. Do yourself a favour, buy this game. CD 1 SELECTII 1 SELECT* , CfHCEL I SELECTS SELECT* ! SELECT!!

peculiar breed They actually seem to enjoy wading through

most small rodents. Why, they even spend hours learning
complicated keyboard commands I mean, are computer games
meant to be fun or MAY 1995 SCREENPLAY Graeme Sandiford flies
through the air with the greatest of ease. With a little help
from Ocean's new Tactical Fighter Experiment, of course.
A Eurolighter 2000. If he lights his reheat, wstch your eyebrows.
What? To the average games player flight sims can often seem more like hard work than a recreational activity.
However, the face of the flight sim is changing and one of the most significant changes took place almost three years ago with the belated release of Epic. This game went a fair way to combining the realism of flight sims with the simple control systems of an arcade game. Although considered a bit too easy, it did prove that such a system could be made workable.
The development team responsible for this hybrid, Digital Image Design, immediately set to work on refining this system and now - three years later - the result is TFX(Tactical Fighter Experiment).
The setting for the game is a time when the Earth is a hotbed of assorted conflicts - now. You play the part of a raw recruit who has joined the UN's Tactical Fighter Experiment as a pilot.
The game is organised into several methods of play, to give you the choice of what kind of game you want to play.
If flying through the air at Mach 1 blowing up enemy fighters with gay abandon is your thing, then you'll enjoy the Arcade playing mode. While playing in this mode it's impossible to crash, so all you need worry about is avoiding getting blasted to kingdom-come by enemy fighters.

Sound 7 out of 10 As good aa any flight sim.
Addiction 8 out of 10 Extremely challenging.
Playability 10 out of 10 Aa easy or aa hard aa you want it to be.
Overall verdict At last a flight sim that can be played without years of study.
91% The next mode is the Simulator. As with the Arcade mode you don't have to worry about mission objectives and other frivolous considerations such as which buildings, and presumably occupants, can be blown to pieces.
However, you do get to choose the area of the globe that you wish to wreak havoc on, as well as the aircraft that you prefer to perform said havoc-wreaking.
You are also given the freedom of choice over what weapons of mass destruction your plane will be carrying.
Learn your lesson While such good-natured jaunts of mindless destruction are accepted in the Arcade and Simulator modes, it would seem that the UN frown upon sending out raw recruits on tours of duty. So before you can go on to the Tour Of Duty you have to successfully complete the Training mode.
Training comprises 10 missions of increasing difficulty, where you face a variety of scenarios from simple air-to- air combat right through to ground- based targets that are protected by air and ground cover. At the beginning of each mission you are given the opportunity to arm your aircraft as you see fit - choose wisely.
After graduating from flight school you get to blow up real stuff by enrolling in one of three squadrons. From here on things can become quite involved and decidedly tricky, especially if you don't pay close attention to your briefings.
This may sound all too easy, but completing your training is no piece of cake and the missions you might be sent on, once you've joined a squadron, can put you in some decidedly tricky situations and environments. For example, on longer missions you may have to refuel your plane and if there are no friendly airstrips nearby you'll have to re-fuel in the air. This isn't too bad with an F-22 and F-117A, but trying to re-fuel ¦ The icing on the cake to this system's realism are the planes and the way they handle.
The Euro Fighter is an absolute pain.
Landing an F-22 on an aircraft-carrier is another demanding, not to mention potentially embarrassing manoeuvre.
However, the difficulties of these tasks are a testament to the game's realism - there's none of your Top (Sunlike flying upside down or at 100ft at a ridiculous speed with "no-hands" - not unless you want to die. It's also very Ignore the smudgy black writing - it's merely a quirk of our screenshotting system. Tch, eh?
Scary when you've been hit and everything goes quiet because your engine has been blown up and you steadily lose altitude.
The realism doesn't end here though, the areas to which you are assigned are all real places and the maps actually look like the real thing.
Although I feel that it's a bit insensitive to recreate battles over areas where people are still being killed in real life, such as former Yugoslavia and Somalia, the environments are quite a piece of work, with sprawling hillsides, excellent Gouraud shading, clouds and even mountain ranges. You even lose visibility if you are flying into the sun above cloud-level.
Sweet success The icing on the cake to this system's realism are the planes and the way they handle. The three planes' capabilities are all faithfully re-produced and you can actually feel the difference between the way the Euro Fighter and the F-117A fly. You can also choose how much control you want over the plane, from simple arcade controls (advised for those who have never flown a real plane) right through to the military- specified controls - for die-hard flight sim addicts only.
Technically speaking, I had only one gripe about the game When you are tracking an enemy aircraft it remains a tiny one-pixel smear and then suddenly explodes to the size and shape of a plane and is then gone before you know it - even if you are flying at a relatively slow speed. It would also have been nice to have more control over the configuration of the control methods, such as which button fires a weapon and which accelerates the plane.
There is one thing that may make some people have second thoughts about buying this game. Although it is possible to play TFX from floppy drives and an unexpanded Amiga, you would get much more out of the game if you had an accelerated machine (with an 030 processor) and a hard drive. It's silky-smooth on the Amiga Format A4000 040! O Kltn.PB HUXIBT-IJ EHUM tf I4i.(JMli!U.4il:I fin Even the weapons-loading-up screen features exciting 3D graphics. Go on - have a couple more bombs.

Angst: an acute but nonspecific sense of anxiety or remorse. OK, so it's a Collins dictionary and thesaurus definition of the meaning of the word.
But it could also fill in as an explanation of how you'll feel about the game after a couple of hour's play.
It's certainly how I felt after a couple of day's play. Although the non-specific part of the definition became a lot more concise and succinct. The main problems with Angst are the lack of atmosphere, the barrenness of the locations visited, the dearth of distracting side tasks, the tetchiness of the control design, and the lack of any entertainment value.
The view is taken from a first-person perspective, making Angst look and play like a poor man's Dungeon Master.
Buying advice Normally when Amiga Format takes screen grabs of a game, we look out for moments that show off its good points, or its action points, or its curiosity points. Anything that'll make the casual reader flicking through the mag in the shop look twice, maybe read some of the copy and buy AF that month.
And that’s another reason why Angst is so disappointing. It doesn't manage to sell itself on any level - from the design, to the graphics, to the control system, to the gameplay.
Take the design of the main screen.
It’s littered with boxes of all sorts which vary from Inventory Held to Health Left.
One of the most important boxes is the Map Screen which constantly updates so you know where you are in a localised area.
Yet the map screen is shunted in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen surrounded by detritus. Not only is it too small, but it should also be located beside the main screen, so you could pay more attention to what's actually appearing on the main screen. But, alack and alas, it's not to be.
So, let's take a look at the control system while we're in this game mechanic criticism mode. On the plus side, rather than having to click the mouse on the directional arrow keys, you can use the cursor keys instead.
Annoyingly though, rather than having a sidestep key to help traverse all those difficult L-shaped corridors, you have to go through a 90 degree zigzag movement. Other than the conventional direction keys, the only other direction that can be undertaken is a full 180- degree rotation. It may not sound like a large transgression, but when you're traversing a section of corridor you know well and have to indulge in a load of mechanical 90 degree manoeuvring, it soon becomes tedious and irritating.
So that's it. I'd like to recommend this game. And I suppose I could if it was £10 maximum, but at full price, it's just too uninspiring, flat and lifeless. I Overall verdict Has the look and feel of a Public Domain game that's waiting for more denizens, tricks and traps.

Rerall verdict_ A successful marriage of arcade and adventure. A gem of a game.
88% Now here's an odd thing.
Didn't I, on a recent Saturday morning (we work Saturdays to bring you this magazine. Oh how we suffer. Sigh.) See the editor of Edge, Future Publishing's high-spec, hi-tec magazine which covers all the latest in videogaming ("and much more". Edge Ed) clutching the original copy of Exile, now some four years old. Blimey. And the guys on Edge wouldn't cross the street to shake hands with a Sony PlayStation. So Exile, reveal yourself. What, pray, does such fuss cause?
Firstly, despite its age, Exile is one of the Amiga's most unusual games. It is an adventure game which looks like a jet-packed platformer cum shoot-em-up affair. The nearest thing to it on the Amiga, and we're talking concept-wise here, not anything reminiscent of the actual plot or action, is Flashback. Yes, mixing playable arcade action with heinous adventuresome puzzles is an Amiga rarity and after playing Flashback and Exile you wonder why this should be.
To Exile and indeed, to plot. You're a spaceman and you spend your time reclining on your Connolly leather spaceseat But suddenly (did you bolt forward then?), Commander Sprake, the ex-Leeds United goalkeeper and Supreme Captain of the Empire calls you on a mission to capture fiendish, mutant-creating madman Triax, a man who is 150 years old yet looks 40; a man with some fabulous moisturising cream.
And then, in the winking of an eye, the hapless goalie and his men are captured by Triax. Only YOU can save them.
Initially, you have but a jetpack, a pair of hands and four empty pockets.
From here, you must leave the ship and jetpack across and arpund a huge, underground, cavernous landscape, collecting and using objects you find, battling foe, opening doors and giving frogs to pink monkeys. The jetpack is quite Bondian and a real treat to play with although it takes time to get used to.
There's no limit Exile has no time limit but when points are scored, they diminish as the seconds tick which discourages aimless exploration. I didn't care however, and spent quality time happily hovering around with not a care in the world, Commander Sprake but a distant memory. A teleport system allows you flit to places you've already visited and back to the ship - wonderfully helpful because this fellow has a seriously large gaming area and you can save your position to both RAM and disk.
Exile's world has that vital ingredient called gravity and all the objects within behave as the laws of physics demand.
So when you pick up objects and throw them, frogs at pink monkeys say, they move as if you were throwing frogs at pink monkeys in real life. Which, of course, is against the laws of The World, one would imagine. And indeed hope.
But don’t be fooled by Exile's attractive marriage of arcade and adventure or its considerably revamped graphics, smooth scrolling and fabulous flying-around-with-a-jetpackness. It's bloody hard. Damned bloody hard.
The game is all on one level, a level about the size of the North Riding of Yorkshire and apparently, even if you know exactly what you're doing, it takes five or six hours to complete. Unless you are a king, you will get stuck. Sure, the puzzles are logical, some are biological, but when you've spent as long as I have wandering around with a frog in your hand, only then will you know the pain this game can cause.
Exile is a fine game, even after all these years. Though initially baffling, if rewards the persistent, enlightens the erm, un-enlightened and the jetpack and gun are bloody brilliant. Fly it soon.

It must be four years old now. Sword Of Honour looks rather similar to its ageing Amiga golf games have pretty much come to a standstill.
Many people, including myself, are of the opinion that PGA Tour and its recent successor European Tour are far and away the best examples. Grandslam's Nick Faldo is fine too, but there's not a great deal else to shout fore for.
Counterpart and involves hacking and slashing, as well as gathering objects to bribe opponents with, and following the text-based hints along the way. But hints to what? To recover the stolen Sword Of Honour, of course.
Sword Of Honour is rather pretty, though ponderous and linear in the extreme. The sprites move slowly yet International Golf simply tries too hard, and subsequently suffers. The original PGA Tour came out some four years ago. It remains simple, playable and a sports game to which you will always return, much in the same way you do with that other great sportfest Sensible Soccer. International Golf however, is bogged down with options.
Check your club, shot power, shot type and direction. Right. Oh, I've got to change everything again next shot?
Perhaps we've been spoiled. Perhaps we're just lazy, but I want to get on with the game without such distraction.
Graphically, it has a fairway to go.
Boom, boom, exclaims Basil Brush from the stalls. The view is of the almost-but-not-quite-above perspective and pleasantly effective, while the green is over-viewed and complete with tiny arrows to denote the curvature of terrain. The detail isn't sufficient to enable accurate putting and the ball moves rather too quickly. It doesn't feel right. So you're better off with PGA Tour, really. O fluidly as you traverse the various screens taking on all comers, but it's neither good enough to combat the best of the beat-em-up genre or exciting enough to sustain interest as an adventure game.
Which makes it rather redundant, and a little expensive.

E FOR IBM PC COMPATIBLES AND AMIGA A500 AI200 bsb£: _ The rat is chasing the rabbit in a hot-air balloon. The rabbit gets out and a 3D platform game begins, which is where Steve Bradley comes in. Hurrah!
Whizz A12GG Apiece of advice, care of Ferris Bueller Esquire. "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't slow down and take a look around once in a while, you might just miss it."
Such counsel should be taken on board by young rabbit Whizz, who would appear to be on the wrong side of late for a very important date.
A rabbit flies around the world in a hot-air balloon pursued by a rat. I don't know why, only that, occasionally, the rabbit jumps balloon and runs around collecting bobs and ends and sods and bits as quickly as possible.
If the rabbit fails to complete the 3D level in the allotted time he starts again.
If the rabbit completes the level, enters the next level only to come unstuck, he starts again on the later level.
However, should the rabbit run out of lives, no matter how far into the levels he's progressed it's game over and back to the start. For the player (for he or she is that very rabbit) of the game, this is extremely annoying.
As my Scottish colleague McGill would say, it makes your oxters ming.
He is correct - it indeed makes your armpits stink. Whizz, readers, is stinky armpits. It is stinky armpits because the control method is finickety to the point where your blood boils, as you tumble yet again because you failed to jump in the right direction.
Of course, practice ensures a certain degree of competence but it don't hide the fact that this particular game does not lend itself to the perspective grandly known as isometric 3D. You may well be impressed as you gaze at the colourful screenshots.
Iz Whizz the biz?
Whizz DOES look good, the parallax scrolling is smooth as you soar across platforms above a shimmering sea littered with the wreckage of ships. Oh, it is pretty.
But it is stinky armpits if you are, and most of you would be were you to make a purchase, using a one-button joystick. Move the shaft and press Fire to jump and if you wish to kill a baddie, press Fire to spin - not easy. Not nice.
The combination of extremely fiddly control and odd perspective ensure frustration is always at the end of the street as you attempt to flit around at pace while the sands of time trickle slowly away.
As you learn the levels, most of the baddies become superfluous - you simply take the shortest route possible, avoiding trouble, collecting the right pieces, before hopping to the exit which becomes very dull, very quickly.
The AF team tired of Whizz, most throwing down the joystick with frustration at the unforgiving controls and the send-you-back-to-the-startness of it all. Avoid Whizz if sanity is your bag, as they used to say in the Sixties. *3 WHIZZ A1200 Flair Software 01661 860260 Price_ £25.99 A1200 System requirements A1200 Release date_ Out now Graphics 8 out of 10 Certainly the high point of a game with few.

CANNON FODDER £9-99 TACTICAL MANAGER £9*99 K240 £9-99 SYNDICATE £9-99 price for Europe to: to press, and Game A cry z HI III X u » Mancheste United: The Double popular Lancashire side.
Manchester United Premier League Champions, the previous incarnation appeared a year ago and looked quite similar to Sensible Soccer, but it played more like the original Kick OH 2. It was FAST, too fast for many.
The major difference between The Double and PLC in arcade terms is the perspective - from viewed-from-above it is now isometric a-la-FIFA Soccer and visually it pleases the eye. Otherwise, no changes playwise.
What Krisalis have done is incorporate a transfer market into the season option (apparently because folk who bought the last one reckoned this would be a good idea), so you can now buy and sell to strengthen your squad.
All the English leagues are included, the teams have squads of 25 players (real names). Their values are not representative of what the club would receive in real life, rather they're based on Krisalis' statistics - 10 facets in all, ranging from speed to shot accuracy, to, well, eight others. Fine.
And you can change these abilities - in fact, you can edit just about everything in the game to suit yourself. You can also look in-depth at every aspect of every other team - performance, discipline, fitness, etc. Fine.
It SWOS and Man Utd: The Double were to play each other at football, then SIVOS would score a first-minute goal with its ‘every team in the world’ feature. Man Utd features English clubs only.
There is a new test we at AF have recently devised, especially for the arrival of a new arcade football game. The whippersnapper must prepare to be played in tandem with our two favourites which happen to come from opposite ends of the footie spectrum.
Sensible Soccer and Empire Soccer.
Sensible Soccer because it is simply fabulous - huge, open pitch, right teams, right kits, names, everything you want in a football game. Empire Soccer for its mad cartoonesque japery, enclosed pitch, huge sprites, special shots and positive SpeedbalFin-shortsness (as described by one correspondent).
Sensible shorts Anything close to either of these games impresses us. In fact, why has no-one ever thought of merging the two footie greats to make Unsensible Speedball Football In Shorts?
Manchester United: The Double, is the fourth in Krisalis' series of arcade games featuring the name of the Steve Bradley pits Krisalis' new football extravaganza against two Amiga Format favourites: Sensible Soccer and Empire Soccer.
There is something wrong though, and it is this. The actual arcade game - the most important part, let's face it - hasn't aged well. At all. The play is so quick you don't feel you're ever in control of the game. Consequently, the ball is difficult to tame, moves are not easy to plan
- it just isn't considered football, nor is it fun.
All too often, the hoof up the middle is employed simply because it's so difficult to do anything else. Rather than pressing the fire button to shoot, you have to hold the button down and release. Of course, this takes some getting used to, though fans of Kick Oil 2 may well prefer this method. The TactiGrid, included in MUPLC is here and it enables you to tailor formations to a tee, and a splendid option it is too. But the pace! You just want to stop the game and ask everyone to slow down a bit.
Manchester United: The Double isn't a BAD game. It's just been left behind. Football Glory does it better. Sensible does, and always did, do it better and it has more teams, more players, more options and plays a better game of football.
It's odd. The same reviewer, reviewing the same sort of game, which, if anything, is slightly better than its predecessor. Yet the percentage score has dropped 22 per cent. Manchester United Premier League Champions was a game we enjoyed 12 months ago. A year on, it’s some way off the title chasers. Did we overrate it last time?
Well, maybe.

Drugs, assaults, match rigging, prison sentences - our national sport sinks deeper each day, many would have us believe.
Solemnly, we must report another tragedy; a tragedy of such calamitous proportions only frequent exposure to eight- player Super Skidmarks can avert the symptoms of extreme anxiety brought on by participating in Super Soccerstars.
Soccer Superstars is a viewed-from-the-side arcade football game with large sprites, whiter-than-white crowd noise, 32 international teams and the players are all fictitious.
It looks not dissimilar to Anco's Kick Off 3. Fouls cannot be committed on the field of play apart from in the penalty area which leads, as one would expect, to the penalty spot.
This game is clumsy and slow and the players are on the wrong side of sluggish. Passing and tackling is hopeful The keeper look! Like he's diving in at the deep end. The playere rather than considered, and with a little practice, guaranteed don't m°v® ,h®'r arms much do they?
Routes to goals are easy to discover. A power bar appears when you hold down the fire button allowing you to increase the velocity of your strike. But who cares?
And after forking out 30 quid, you really don't want to (for example) turn to page two, count down 14 lines, then 13 words across and input said word to play the game. Copy protection is all well and good but punishing the souls who spend hard-earned is a bit much.
So Soccer Superstars, why make an appearance at this juncture, at a time when the competition's defence is virtually impregnable?
SOCCER SUPERSTARS Flight of fantasy?
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 he 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 skv’s the limit!

Now, what
sort of example is that?
Ruffian game for an age, but there are far better platformers which will probably cost half the price. I say probably, because Ruffian is of the dreaded price TBA - To Be Announced. So if they charge a tenner, then great But £26? Woah!
Ruffian is fair, for the most part. The platforms are bounders, the puzzles are head-scratching and spitting, despite being the bane of mums throughout the Home Counties, is phlegming fun. But once you've chuckled at the gobbing and hooted at the bottom-baring, you've been there, seen that, done that, as the chaps on the advert say.
An average platform game which adds nothing to this somewhat comatose genre That's Ruffian.

Playability 5 out of 10 Allegedly, a ledge. Hop it.
Overall verdict A ledge too far. Ruffian (TBA) is steeped in mediocrity.
50% The simpler the plot the better.
Witch doctor sends Small Ruffian Boy Who Likes To Bare His Backside to jungle to save pixies from carnivorous plants. Witch doctor leaves bits and bobs in jungle to help Small Ruffian Boy Who Likes To Bare His Backside in his task. Small Ruffian Boy Who Likes To Bare His Backside's principal weapon is the ability to gob spit chipe on the creatures of the jungle which, interestingly, include parrots and monkeys. And lizards.
Oddly, the title screen features five pixies working out - pressing up, lifting weights and stretching. Surely, fit young pixies could not fall prey to the wiles of the meat-eating plant? But they have, so they can. And they did.
Bum deal Platform protagonists are not usually wont to 'moon'. Sonic The Hedgehog doesn't wear pants - he has a somewhat bushy bottom, while the idea of 'Super' Mario running around sans dungarees is perfectly abhorrent, but Ruffian, when not engaged in fetching running jumping shooting turns around and SHOWS HIS BOTTOM.
What bare-faced cheek!
So here's the deal. You have a certain amount of time to rescue a given number of pixies from each level. As the difficulty level increases, so do the pixies. Chiping on them saves them and when you've collected the last pixie, hotfoot it to the exit and the next level.
Grandslam, in their wisdom, have avoided the oft fallen into trap of providing a racy backbeat to the ledge antics (only the quirky Toki managed to pull this off), opting instead for jungle effects and a fine hooiiik - that's the noise you make when preparing to spit.
Nevertheless, such finery cannot hide the fact that there is no point to Ruffian. Admittedly, I enjoyed playing it, because I haven't played a platform MAY 1995 SCREENPLAY They have been on the shelves before, only last time round they cost a little bit more.

LEGENDS OF VALOUR Kixx 0121 625 3311 ¦ £12.99 Reviewed AF44 91 % New RPG and adventure games are awfully thin on the ground these days, despite being AF readers' favourite genre. We know - reader surveys impart such vital information.
Legends Of Valour is a graphic adventure set in the quaint, Germanic- sounding town of Mittledorf and your task is to rise through the social order like a minor media celeb on the make.
The environment is open-ended, so you can approach the set tasks at a leisurely pace (indeed, is there any other?), taking time to get to know the locals and suss out the town.
Brawling and beer drinking are high on the list of activities, always a fabulous attraction in the computer game. The texture-mapped graphics are impressive though the caboodle is a tad slow on the A500 - if you are loath to spend time disk-swapping, don't even think about LOYunless you've got a hard drive.
But lo, it's humorous and fun to play, which sounds like quite a recommendation. It is.
CHAMPIONSHIP MANAGER ITALIA Domark 0181 780 2224 ¦ £24.99 Not previously reviewed "Come here, there's more," one particularly amusing, welly-sporting Irish comedian might suggest when referring to Domark's Championship Manager series, a collection of releases described by one former colleague as a never-ending cash cow.
For argument's sake, let us be cynical for a moment. Football management games are proven sellers, persistently commandeering the upper reaches of the charts. You are in the boardroom at a software company discussing possible projects.
The choice comes down to producing what is essentially an updated version of a previously successful product or branching out, investing in something new and exciting, groundbreaking even. So, a football management game it is then.
And Domark are by no means the only culprits here - and at least their 'products' are of a consistently high standard. We've had numerous versions of Championship Manager including upgrades, offers of free books and the like but can they seriously justify another full-priced release?
Championship Manager Italia '95 is an updated version of the last game (AF58 85%, £17.99), based on the first and second divisions in the Italian league. It's seven quid more and you'd need to be a serious fan to buy it.
A10 TANK KILLER Kixx 0121 625 3311 ¦ £16.99 Reviewed AF22 75%, Why is the two-year-old Legends Of Valour 13 nicker and twice-as-old A10 four quid more? Anyway, rust plays no part in this game, for the tank killer in question is the A10 Thunderbolt II, an aeroplane. The graphics have been tarted up, extra missions added and the sound effects tweaked, while the ingame music is a tuneless aberration.
You're American and you have to shoot Russian tanks. Unfortunately, it's a tad slow and in the intervening years, superior games have been released, and indeed re-released.

Head to the penalty spot and at the last minute turn on a sixpence, either left or right, and blast the ball into the roof of the net.
Into the box you go. The keeper moves but it's too late. You've slipped the ball to your mate on the other side of the box and he slides in.
Simply dribble the ball past the defenders and the goalkeeper and slot it home. This often depends on the attributes of the player.

We are particularly interested in any cunning set pieces you may have worked out. We might even send you a sensational Sensible World Of Soccer whistle. If you're very lucky.
The penally. OK, you all know how to bury home a spot kick but for those new to the game, a full diagonal click does the trick.
You confidently arrive at the corner of the box and using outward after touch, beat the keeper with swerve, verve and indeed, pace.
Intricate passing has lured the hapless keeper to the edge of the box. Knock the ball to the man at the near post and calmly slot home.
This one has loads of swerve and is unleashed from around the penalty spot. Rejoice as you take the spoils.
The set piece at the corner. Bang it into the near post, pull your striker out and then back in and head the ball into the net. Cool.

GA Womack, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk Raising sheep Try not to eat your sheep. They don't give birth fast enough to replace what you would probably eat. They are a cash crop, in that you can raise them fairly quickly, and sell the wool they create for gold. Sheep are an indirect food source, however, in that you can use the money that comes from wool to buy grain.
Used in this way, they can feed as many people as any other crop type.
Because merchants have to convert wool to grain, you must wait for them to arrive in your county (and they must sell both grain and sheep). Therefore, it's wise to build up a small stockpile of grain to hold your people through dry spells when merchants don't arrive. To get a sizable flock in a reasonable time, you may wish to buy additional sheep from a merchant.
Bear in mind that sheep give birth during only one season per year, unlike cows, you won't see them growing every season. However, their annual birth rate is higher than that of cows.
Raising cattle Try not to eat your cattle - they don't give birth fast enough to replace what you would probably eat. They are a viable food source, however, in that you can eat the diary produce they generate you're less likely to be attacked there.
Don't expand too quickly. It's important to keep each of your counties happy and growing.
Successful agriculture You may find it easier to specialise in one crop type in each county. If you mix crops in one county, you will be faced with drawbacks that come with each of them, and may be more likely to be short of food at any given moment.
Each crop type feeds people to different degrees, but each type also grows at different rates. Feeding and growth levels are balanced so that each crop type produces the same amount of food in the long run.
Use as many fields as possible without causing a decline in fertility, and without requiring an excess of serfs to maintain them. For cattle and sheep, a greater number of fields increases birth rates and decreases death rates. For grain, only use as many fields as you have labourers to farm them. Sometimes cattle and sheep die from old age, and no amount of farming can prevent it.
With any crop, there are events that appear from time to time that kill or destroy some of its stores. Therefore, it's always a good idea to have a little extra food to cover these events.

Get involved in stone, iron or wood production as soon as you can, or save up funds to buy the resources you need.
You should start production as soon as you have excess men, but you need a decent population (at least 1,000 men) before you get much output.
Once you start production, you'll have to weigh the benefits of arming your troops with weapons first (which toughens them greatly, and makes it easier to acquire new counties) or building a castle (which increases your ability to fend off attacks).
If you plan on expanding into a couple of counties quickly, you might as well wait to build a castle until you expand your kingdom. A castle is less useful in the centre of your empire - I * :p} ! IfJill i! Jifm ! S 5 v § 2 .Si « 9 5 ! J s «*• 11 ¦5 c ot.5 -“2 S

Remember not to expend too quickly, or you'll leave yourself weak in areas that are critically important. Invasion and defeat are not conducive to victory.
1 ¦I 1 Abroad each season without killing them. As with sheep, invest in your cattle by buying more cows because the herd grows slowly on its own, Farming grain Always make sure to keep some grain stored for sowing If you forget this and miss a sowing season, you can lose a whole year's worth of food. Remember that the grain you harvest has to last for four seasons.
When you allocate labour for sowing, make sure you have enough men to harvest the resulting grain. It takes 1.5 times as many men to harvest as to sow. If you can't fully harvest the grain, you may want to cut back on the sowing to save on grain and labourers.
Don't overplant early on. One field can feed plenty of people, and to farm too many hurts your fertility for little benefit.
Consider using grain when you're starting out. It is the cheapest crop, although it's very labour intensive and, unlike cattle or sheep, you can build up a grain stockpile without having to worry about maintaining it.
Building an army Any type of weapons at least double the usefulness of your fighters. Build or buy weapons as soon as possible. Use maces and axes for a more aggressive army - they are better on the attack.
Use spears and axes for a more defensive army. Arm your soldiers with maces and spears if you are short on gold, because their wages will be less this way. Archers and crossbows are invaluable for whittling down foes from a distance. No moderate-to-large army should be without them. Use knights if you can afford their wages (and their doubled production cost).
Fighting ground battles Surround enemy fighters to attack from different sides. Attempt to lure the enemy into a marsh, and attack from the edge of the marsh. Use knights to outrun or outflank the enemy.
Use archers at the start of the battle. Keep archers out of hand-to- hand combat, or they'll stop firing. If you can lower the enemy's morale from a distance with archers, you may be able to cause a rout without getting hit once.
Eliminate enemy archers quickly.
Designing castles Don't place the central defensive point on the outer edge of the castle - that makes it much easier for the enemy to launch infantry attacks on it. Add plenty of storage space for food and men - 331 form**? 300 33H«rd*rs 33 l * l 0 BuAAcr; mm* nwtonats ID Mura ?0% tZiQuornprs

OK, so this screen s practically crying out for a Rik Mayall Young Ones joke. But we don't know any jokes like that so just make sure that you don't overwork any fields or you'll sutler accordingly Castles tend to be capable of storing about two seasons' worth of food for their largest possible garrison (at normal rations), so, you may want to garrison the castle with fewer than the maximum men, so food lasts longer.
Remember that a moat buys you extra time in a siege, and requires only labour to build. Try for a concentric castle design, with the central defensive point in the middle Try starting with a small design, and expand later.
Towers, gatehouses and keeps add a defensive bonus to all fighter, ladder and tower attacks that occur within one square of them. Therefore, the best- defended castles will place these structures no further than two square apart, so that their defensive areas meet. Build a gatehouse on the castle, otherwise you will be unable to sally forth or attempt escape from a siege.
Defence against siege If your forces are large enough, try taking on the enemy in battle, but be careful because you don't know what the enemy is armed with until you attack. If you plan on sallying forth, garrison your castle with some armed troops. If you don't, then don't waste weapons inside the castle walls but garrison the castle with peasants.

To add variety, various weapons and power ups can be bought in a shop to help you dispatch the increasingly difficult and bizarre cyberpunky opponents that you come up against.
You shouldn't be disappointed. If these guys get the encouragement they deserve, who knows, the next Mortal Kombat II or Shadow Fighter could be appearing in PD Select.
Please note that this game is Shareware. If you like it and want to own the full version, you should send US$ 15 to one of the members of Cyberpunk Developments.

There are several versions of the program on here, as well as a few games for you to try straight away. If you happen to have a load of old Speccy tapes. Antonio has constructed his own interface so that you can load them into the Amiga direct from tape.
You need an 020 processor in order for the emulator to run properly. Sadly, the games only run around half speed, marginally faster if you've got Fast RAM installed. Add an accelerator and you're talking historical excitement city.
Re-live the tension and terror of 3D Ant Attack, the adrenalised action of Jet Pac and gaze in awe at the beauty of Sabre Wulf s 8-bit attribute dpsh.
Antonio can be contacted on the Internet at: tpomartfpenedes.mazanet.encomix.com. CYBERGAMES: The graphics have been spruced up. The sound improved, and a shop added to make this different to Barbarian.

And start a jail riot. Oops, sorry about Whether it's for drippy-nosed sentimental nostalgia or hard-faced historical research, or even just for piqued curiosity, no self-respecting Amiga owner should be without a ZX Spectrum emulator for their machine.
Antonio's emulator is one of the best currently doing the rounds of the PD houses.

It's true lhat the original intention of demos isn’t to
entertain or be scrutinised by the general Amiga- owning
public, but rather to be put under the metaphorical microscope
of other .Amiga coding groups - usually at special parties for
such shenanigans.
Killing Time by Oxyron is one such demo. Unless you’re suffering from a chemical imbalance at die time, it isn't very entertaining. There are too many stacatto siop-stari sequences of the style: here's an effect, did you see it? Did you see it? Well, here's another.
And it's a shame. Demo coders could sell the .Amiga to the nonconverted. In these troubled times, it's what's needed. But do they? Some do.
Take the 3D texture labyrinth - realtime texture city! You're treated to some texture-mapped blocks and buildings swirling around to some disinterested manic music.
Strategic logical use. AH in all. Double Shuffle is a simple kind of idea that also happens to be fiendishly addictive.
Stronglv recommended to clear the rationality cobwebs.
Continued overleaf 4 Why couldn’t it have been synchronised to the music in the way that a similar routine in Wit Premium by Freezers is. It would keep normal people interested.
Still, Killing Time will do just that, kill some time.
DOUBLE SHUFFLE GAME By_John Elrich PD library_Freestyle PD No of disks_One Price _£1.50 inc p&p Written in AMOS. Double Shuffle is. As the name implies, a shuftley, puzzley sort of a game. You play in a rectangular area that's populated with various blue blocks and differently coloured shapes. The coloured shapes have to be picked up. Re-arranged and set down in a new order which is defined at the start of each game by the map at the bottom of the screen.
To complicate dungs, the shapes can't lit* set down unless thev’re leaning against a solid object which can be the walls of the rectangular area itself, a blue block, or a coloured shape. This is very important and has to be put to AFCOPY By_Hydra! Tension PD library_Network PD No of disks One Price_75p, plus 5Op p&p Everybody needs a disk copier from time to time.
Certainly, disk and file copying can be carried out from the Shell, but that takes up valuable time and costs precious lives.
AFCopy is as good a copier as you'll find in the Public Domain. Similar in style to Directory Opus, many of the functions are invaluable to anyone finding themselves in the situation of having to swap and copy files. Considering that the total cost for all of the goodies on hand is a mere £1.25, Amiga Format has absolutely no qualms about recommending this splendid utility to one and all.
LEMMINGS IS A MODERN DAY CLASSIC, A MASSIVE AND TROUT ' MNDBOGGUNG GAME OF MIIUiPLE, , SKK1 UEVH.S. TOTALLY ADDICTIVE AND EASY TO CONTROL YET IT Wli tnners BACKDOOR V5: Help for just about every game you could think of, plus some. It’s so good that Steve Bradley uses it.
4- ASCII DEMO DEMO By_Impact PD library_Network PD No of disks_One Price_75p plus 50p p&p An unusual demo in that il uses the standard ASCII and ANSI character sets as the basis for all the graphics and routines. At first, you'd think that this limitation would make the demo look horrible. But it doesn't. In fact it gives it character in the way that a Robin Reliant has character compared to a Nissan 7.X Turbo.
There are lots of zippy routines that mould seamlessly into one another. Of special note are the system library routines that rotate and twist - first a series of balls, and then a cube. They're as fast as most similar routines seen on the I’D scene today. Hurrah for Impact.
The Party Of 94 get together for PD coders was made all the better by the presence of their demo.
BACKDOOR V5 UTILITY By_Stephen Birmingham PD library_Online PD No of disks_One Price_75p plus 75p p&p It's easy to cheat, but hard not to!'
We're reminded by Stephen in his signing off call for version five of this excellent disk.
Backdoor v5 is well presented in the form of an alphabetic database and literally hundreds of games are opened up to those stuck, dumbfounded, or just too impatient to play them by conventional means. There's a surprising solution to both of the Monkey Island games lor instance.
Because of the dynamic nature of games and all the hidden cheats and other little asides constantly being discovered, the Backdoor disk couldn't be described as comprehensive, but it's very close. If you’re into games, get this disk, it's invaluable.
CYBER SPHERE GAME DF.MO By _Clay Heilman PD library_Freestyle PD No of disks_One Price_£1.50 inc p&p Cyber Sphere is. When all is said and done, a breakout or Arkanoid clone. This disk is merely a demo version of the full game and therefore I wouldn't normally give it any space in PD Select.
But I found myself completely addicted and panting for more after I had completed the three main screens and the associated bonus levels.
Control is by mouse anti all the usual features such as falling power-ups are here. Difficulty increases with every requisite progression on to the next screen and due to the fact that I haven't played Breakout or Arkanoid for years, this truly was a treat.
If you want to play the full version, you can buy it direct from Clay. The address and purchase details are included in a text file. 'Zf TOP 10 PUBLIC DOMAIN TITLES TOP 10 courtesy of: GROUND ZERO SOFTWARE 4 Chandos Road, Redland, Bristol BS6 6PE Tel: 0117 9741462

If Amiga graphics are so good and 24-bit colour so great, why does John Kennedy want to stick a 64-bit PC card in his A4000?
The Piccolo SD64 is an autosensing Zorro 11 111 card for the A2000. A3000 and A4000.
Utilising the latest generation of video generating chip. It's got a PC- style SVGA video output socket, a video input socket (for displaying normal Amiga video) and connectors for an optional board will provide composite and SVHS video signals for recording images 011 to video tape.
Continued overleaf -* another by dragging it off the side of the display. Neal.
If you only have one monitor, connect the Amiga video to the Piccolo's input and make use of the system that I way. The software which is bundled with the Piccolo includes the EGS system, plus a copy of 'I'VPaint Junior, PicoPainter and I an Aftevx-drivcn multimedia system | called Din.
ECS is a complete replacement Workbench for the Amiga, specially I written to create a common platform for I third-party graphics cards. It's now in revision seven and is even smarter than ever, with drop shadows windows and gorgeous coloured icons. The ECS system supports multiple screens in 16 million colours, and comes with a large i selection of Workbench-type tools to | tweak performance and adjust settings.
EGS is still next to useless of course, because no-one other than graphics cards manufacturers ever writes anything for it - with the exception of TVPaint which is still probablv the best Amiga 24-bit paint package.
TVPninl was always designed to work with 24-bit cards, and is a pleasure to use. The cut-down junior version supplied seems to crash after an image is saved, so bo prepared to stump up for the full version. The bundled PiroPninltn art package is actually pretty good, much better than the usual EGS paint program. It's got a great selection of tools for altering colours and processing with convolution matrices, as well as loads of options for simple sketching and touching up digitised pictures.
Dia is a kind of Arexx driver for the graphics card. Using Apcxx scripts you can display text, load IFF images and draw various graphics primitives. The image quality is. As you would expect, excellent, and the easv-to-use Altrxx port means that linking the Piccolo to other programs is an extremelv straightforward task.
REDIRECTION Anyone designing a new graphics device for the Amiga doesn't have an easy task in from of them. Assuming they get the hardware side sorted, there is still the software angle to deal with. Most programs released in the last year or so feature screen mode requesters, and using these with the Piccolo is relatively straightforward: simply select the new Piccolo video modes which have magically appeared.
Thankfully, the list of programs which work in this way includes Workbench. Other programs need a helping hand to move on to the new graphics card, and that is where the redirection utility PicoRetarget comes in.
Depending on how well the program has been written, getting it on to another video device can be a problem. Some programs, for example, Cygnus Editor, need to be run on the Workbench screen in order to get the scrolling working glitch free.
Deluxe Paint wouldn't move at all (thank goodness for the increasingly useful Personal Paint) but most other utilities I checked seemed to work fine.
Programs which steadfastly refuse to move can be displayed using the normal Amiga hardware, and with the special pass-through option of the Piccolo even one- screen users won't miss out.
It's not really a PC card of course, but bec ause the video chip itself was originally designed for use in the latest PC graphics cards I thought we could get away with the shocking strap line.
It is described as a 64-bit system, not because of the number of colours it can display, but because of the way the graphics chip works internally. As a result of the extra-clever technical bits inside the chip, and when used with a Zorro III system, this card gives die fastest possible screen updates and blitter-style image moving.
The Piccolo comes with cither 2Mb or 4Mb of its own video memory, and is capable of displaying screens in resolutions from 640 by 480 pixels, through 800 by 600, all the way up to
1. 280 by 1.024. .All these modes are I available in 256 colours,
and up to 800 by 600 in 24-bit colours. The top mode is I
available in 16-bit colour if you expand the card to 4Mb.
Actually viewing the new modes is possible on any standard Amiga monitor
- the typical Philips colour monitor for example. Unfortunately,
this monitor | will be seen as an insult to the Piccolo, but
the good news is that it works perfectly (as indeed it should)
with any SVGA-style PC monitor. These can be bought for less
than the Philips system, and with a half decent one you can
expand Workbench to a gorgeously llicker-free 800 by 600
The larger modes will sadly require a 17-inch or better monitor, which are still ludicrously expensive. I tested the card with a 15-inch Tatung UltraScan Plus and found the 800 bv 600 mode I about as detailed as it would go.
Although I used higher modes when I knew visitors were coming.
Installation is just .t question of plug in and go... well sort of. If you have two I monitors (for example, your existing Amiga monitor and a PC one you've borrowed) you can place them side-by- I side and enjoy all the benefits of a two-screen family. When the software is installed and running you can move the mouse pointer from one screen to DISTRIBUTOR Ramiga International (01690 770304) PRICE £299 (2Mb) £349 (4Mb) SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS Any Amiga with Zorro slots, Zorro III recommended for speed.

Comparing the price of an Amiga graphics card to that for a PC is a painful business. The ubiquitous PC has a choice from hundreds of different cards, and the competition means that the price is kept extremely low.
It hurts even more when you realise that the heart of the Sdfif is a graphics chip designed for the PC - ves, the vert' same chip which is in cards at half the price. To be fair, getting the Amiga's Motorola processor to work with chips Animation support is included, but it is limited to playing back individual frames rather slowly. For more useful animation speeds, a program such as MainArtor is required. Unfortunately. 1 couldn't get the Magic Lantern system u work with the SD64.
The Piccolo comes with an instant library of live manuals - one for the card, one for PicoPainlrr, one for KGS, one for l ia and one for TVPaint, and they are all very good.
Designed for Intel processors is not an easy task. 1 met someone who did it once, and he shuddered to think of the effort involved.
F. ven with the hardware finished, there's still the job of
writing the necessary software to integrate it into the
Amiga's Operating System. The Amiga market has only a few
cards to choose from, but perhaps the closest competition
would be the* Retina Z.H, which is also a Zorro III card. The
Retina is good, but suffers slightly because it isn't quite as
efficient at redirecting programs and doesn't have .
The Rainbow card is probably as fast, but at the last count cost so much more that it puts itself in a completely dilfet eni league. What benefits a video card oilers the typical Amiga user are pretty obvious to anyone who has ever seen one at work.
For a start, the well-developed chip set generates video which is in general much better that anything the Amiga can push out. The result is a much brighter and clearer Workbench display, with no black borders. The graphics chip is also excellent at moving about large chunks of colour which means dragging windows around is much faster, and the real-colour facilities mean | that displaying 2-1-bit graphics from , programs such as The Art Department is much, much faster.
There are other benefits, such as the card's own video memory which frees up Chip RAM. In short, the graphics card is an accelerator. The SD64 uses the latest generation of graphics chips, which shift data around internally using 64-bit paths. They arc optimised for use with I Graphical User Interfaces, although I I wouldn't like to guess the degree to which Intuition can take advantage of this feature.
However, the end result is clear to I see (pun intended), because the Piccolo is a very fast card with good software support, excellent expansion capabilities and a lot going for it.

Net freedom under ii B U1JC CD 'J3Z 7fJU» Almalhera obviously aren't prepared to rest on their laurels. Having gained the accolade of a 95 per cent Format Gold (A 6 ) for their Photogenics image processing program, they are now back with an upgrade that promises to deliver even more pixel punchin' power.
Available free of charge to all registered Photogenics owners (simply send Almathcra your registration number, a blank disk anti an SAF.), this latest upgrade extends Photogenics' image processing capabilities considerably.
Itqge: 206fl77.pcd Olode: Defocus, flrSrush size 201 Chip 1B38tt Fast H80ft - 12zttpti Ql If you expect to finds lots of new anti exciting features then Photogenics I. la may be something of a disappointment.
Instead, Almathera have concentrated on fine-tuning the already impressive range of tools and associated features.
By far the most important improvement is Photogenics' rotation capabilities. Whereas the previous version restricted you to 90 degree increments, Photogenics I. la lets you rotate an image to any angle you choose. Couple this with the increase in performance that Almathera jliotogsntei 1.1a have managed to build in and this makes the upgrade worthwhile.
Little more than three months on from the release of Photogenics 1.0, Almathera are back with an upgrade.
Jason Holborn puts it through its paces.
Version I. la also has new paint modes - refract (splits the image into four separate chunks and then puts them back together at a slight offset from the original), flip (flips your image or brush horizontally or vertically), median stellate (transforms the image into a pattern of pretty stars) and defocus (blurs the image by a variable amount - like adjusting a camera lens).
Many of Photogenic*' existing paint modes have been enhanced too. For example, whereas the original RubThni allowed you no control over the rubbing process, Photogenics 1.1 a enables you to offset the secondary bitmap (the bitmap that will show through the ‘rubbed' areas) by a specified amount.
PHOTOGENICS 1.1a Emboss is just one of the many paint modes which have been considerably enhanced for vf.fa. len'ain i Photogenics' Emboss operator has also undergone work. The original only r mt *) i it fa RiR , vhf.: Y,y , 1 n.R vi mkd & allowed you to add a shadow to the outside of a line, now Version I. la lets you add shadows to both sides. A minor feature maybe, but still important. The increase in Photogenics' performance has also been carried across into the paint modes, making the program more productive.
Photogenics has always been a great program but ersion . La is even better.
Although it mav not offer the raw image DISTRIBUTOR Almathera Systems 0181 687 0040 PRICE £54.95 (Free to Photogenics 1.0 owners) SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS WB 3.0 or better, 1Mb of RAM SPEED ••••• Even on a 3.1-based A500, it is surprisingly rapid. On an accelerated Amiga your hair will stand on end I MANUAL • • • • Although the production quality leaves a lot to be desired, the manual content is very, very good indeed.
ACCESSIBILITY ••• Not as accessible as a dedicated paint program but easier to use than ADPro or tmageFX.
Manipulation power of dedicated image processing programs like ADPro 2.5 and hnageFX. Photogenics leaves them for dead when it comes to ease of use and ‘hands on' retouching features. Whilst it's unlikely lo make existing Photogenics owners fall over themselves to upgrade, those that haven't seen the light should be impressed with the increase in speed and additional features. A winner. H FEATURES ••••• Although nothing astounding has been added to this latest release, the core range of features is top notch.
VALUE ••••• Almathera could double the price, and Photogenics would still be worth every penny.

New Street Alfreton Derbyshire DE5S7BP Telephone: 01773 521606 Facsimile: 01773 831040 CT* Deluxe Paint V Embonad The Amiga's oldest paint package just doesn't know when to lie down and take a count, as Stevie Kennedy found out... Some of the textures on offer. They vary in quality, but a bit of imaginative texturing can give a tired image new life.
Just when you thought that lliilliance, Photogenics, and Personal Paint had punched the life out of Deluxe Paint, Electronic Arcs have slapped the old bruiser across the face a couple of times, given him a few new moves, and pushed him back into the ring. He might have one eye shut and a nasty cut below the nose, but if George Foreman can do it... Deluxe Paint hit a high on version III when it appeared in just alMiut every software bundle sold with an A500 and became the standard for Amiga art. For animation, the program's Move requester was hard to beat and it had several powerful features,
not the least of which was the Perspective tool.
Things change, however, and when people started to clamour for HAM and even HAMS support. Electronic Arts released version IV to a waiting world. The result was a mixed bag. Although some interesting features were added, the speed of Dpninf s operation (in HAM and HAMS modes at least) was so slow as to be unusable on anything less than a 68030.
In its favour, the package is one of the most easy to use. But modern Amiga style guides overtook it a couple of years ago and when the competition started to offer more features, the EA program’s dominance of the low-end graphics market was at an end. .As an upgrade, version V goes a fair way towards redressing the balance, and offers more than the missed opportunity that was Dpaint l .
Speed, however, is not one of the improvements in Dpaint V’. The documentation claims that it is faster in some operations, but the onlv real improvement I noticed was where proper .Amiga gadgets and requesters have been used to replace the old-fashioned Dpaint efforts. Choosing a font or using one of the many requesters is made a lot quicker and easier simply by making full use of keyboard short-cuts, and F.A should be applauded for taking 011 board the standard approach.
In other areas, especially when working with HAM and HAMS, the package seems to trundle along at much the same speed as its forebears. Using Hood fill on a HAMS image is still a good wav to make time lor a tea break. Another irritating foible they haven’t cured is the habit of ignoring the area below the tool bar on the right-hand side of the image.
In other areas, there have been some solid enhancements to the existing tools and features. The tool bar iLself holds a few of these, and rather than the pointless extras people shove into packages. EA have included some seriously useful stuff.
Ahtexx macros are one of the most welcome additions, especially because EA decided to make them available to everyone by including an auto-record function. The new Macro menu has a simple toggle option to begin recording, and finished macros can be assigned to the numeric keys (with the right Amiga key) or selected from the User menu.
This degree of automation is ideal for the artist who doesn’t want to mess around Continued overleaf &
* ¦ with Ahrxx, and would be a godsend for those who might be
sick of selling up, say, a perspeclive effect for the millionth
MAY 1 995 SERIOUSLY AMIGA AMIGA STYLES The benefits of following Amiga style guides laid down by Commodore are many, not the least of which is keeping the OK and Cancel commands on the correct sides of a requester. By adopting proper Amiga file requesters and style guides for buttons and gadgets, a package becomes instantly more accessible, because anyone who has used ft following the same style guides will be that much more comfortable with It.
Macros can be loaded and saved at any point, so there’s 110 limit to the number available for use.
On the tool bar, picking up brushes has been made easier by the inclusion of a Magic Wand icon. Just click the Custom Brush icon three times then click once inside the area you wish to pick up. Dpaint grabs hold of all pixels lying contiguous with the one you click on, except background pixels, making it much easier to pick up irregular shapes.
One priceless addition is the ability to animate with a page size larger than the screen, which allows for the new Anim menu option. Camera Moves. This can be put to work to pan the camera across a larger-than-screen image to give the effect of a scrolling background, zoom in or out, and generally give the animator a much enhanced range of effects to play with.
Screen wrap is taken rare of, so if you were setting up an anim of a man running, it would be relatively easy to have him jog 011 the spot while the background scrolls past rather like in the old movie studios.
This takes a lot of the work out of drawing background frames and is a real bonus.
The Move requester has seen a couple of enhancements in that users ran now set transparency levels for the beginning and end of a move, and fade in and out very' smoothly. Cinematic fades and camera "The light table has seen several improvements and has its own Prefs settings, which, makes using the tricky little beast a bit easier.** pans aren’t exactly new, but they've never been so easy to utilise from within a paint package and videographers would be advised to give Dpaint another look.
A second animation plus is the removal of the package's fussiness about palettes. With Dpaint V'. Users can animate with frames of differing palettes (one per frame if you wish), making it a lot less painful to stitch several scenes together.

brushes. This, combined with full-screen camera moves, gives
Dpaint a real boost for video work animate on huge canvasses,
the new features give Dpaint a much roomier feel.
The light table feature has seen several improvements and now has its own Prefs settings. The four layers can be selectively turned on or off and each can be dimmed to exact specifications, which makes using the tricky little beast a bit easier.
Printing animations for preview may seem daft, but the new printing features include a Storyboard option to print up to 16 frames on one piece of paper. Many animators will find this a puzzling addition, but storyboards are useful for showing an animation in its rough form or tracking the action in a number of scenes without continually running them on screen.
In drawing terms, little has changed.
There’s a new soft-edged airbrush option which works with HAM and HAMS to give users the same control offered by other HAM8 packages, but this is hampered by speed considerations and isn’t really suited to EHB or other modes with fewer colours.
UldTKIBUTUK Electronic Arts 01753 549442 PRICE £89.99 SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS WB 2.04, at least 2Mb RAM (4Mb highly recommended) SPEED • • Better than version IV, but still very sluggish in HAM and HAM8 modes.
MANUAL • • • • Clear, lucid, and over 330 ring-bound pages packed with info.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • • An easy-to-use package with most of the more complex features given their own control panels.
Those who create a lot of HAMS images or who would like to edit 24-bit files, even if only to add a bit of text to them, will be glad of the new 24-bit support. Dpaint can now hold a buffered 24-bit frame in the background while you display it on screen at anything down to 16 colours and mess around with it. For AGA users, this makes Dpaint a much more complete package.
?Paint's rivals offer tcxtured painting and other advances over straightforward painting, and Dpaint Vs attempt to catch up is the new Media and Textures options.
Media can be oil paint, chalk, felt tip, or water colour, and there’s a generous selection of different canvas textures.
All in all, a good upgrade with as many new features as enhanced old ones. You could argue that the animation restrictions should have gone with release IV, but llie use of style guides, auto-recorded macros, and a fistf ul of tweaks gives Dpaint a better chance against the fierce competition. O FEATURES •••• Plenty left over from older versions, and a few nice additions.

LI500 genlock and the Fusion lies in the circuit board they're constructed on and the addition of a video signal fader.
Cosmetically, the Fusion looks cheaper, but that's most likely a marketing ploy. After all, it does cost considerably less (it's about £75 cheaper) than the LI 500 and is aimed at a different marketing niche. Subdely, the LI 500 uses BNC connectors for video connection whereas the Fusion uses standard 75 ohm RCA - phono sockets.
So beware. Aside from fading the video signal to black, the Fusion offers all the features of the LI 500 such as full-travel fading of Amiga graphics into the video picture, seamless - and hence recordable - transitions between full Amiga graphics, video pass-thru, and mixed graphics and video and superior stabilisation of the mixed Amiga signal - it's possible to achieve acceptable results even when the video source is paused.
And there's more. Provision is made for RGB pass-thru and an optional chromakey device. The chromakey will be available in September of this year at the earliest. If it's up to the same standard as the Fusion, it'll be terrific.
A genlock for under £100 can't be up to much. Or can it?
Steve McGill discovers a true desktop video bargain in the form of the new Amitek Fusion.
The message is clear and simple. The Fusion represents excellent value. It's ideal for the beginner as well as the undemanding semi-pro. A true AT Gold winner if ever there was one. O Desktop video is one of the most exciting and potentially rewarding areas of endeavour that any Amiga owner can indulge in. And one of the DTV enthusiast's first purchases usually involves a genlock ot some description.
But which genlock should you buy?
There's a bewildering choice on the market. They range from excellent and expensive to not very good but still expensive. The -Amitek Fusion should help anyone out who finds themself in this purchasing quandary.
The first decision you make should be based on the equipment you have. If you're rich enough to own Hi-Band equipment such as Hi-8 cameras and Super-VHS video decks, then you're better off looking elsewhere.
AMITEK FUSION The Fusion handles standard composite signals only. But that isn't a great disadvantage because the vast majority of consumer equipment only outputs composite video anyway.
The main problem isn't always the picture quality, but the number of copy generations you can dub down to. Signal WHAT DOES A GENLOCK DO?
W * o s s lOO A commonly asked question with a simple enough answer.
Genlocks let you superimpose Amiga graphics on a source video signal. It achieves this by making one of the Amiga's colour registers - usually colour zero - transparent. All instances of colour zero are replaced with video.
Genlocks are excellent for adding titles and credits to video productions. But they can also be used for multimedia applications and special effects.
Integrity has to be top notch for fourth generation copies to be acceptable. And that’s where most composite genlocks fail
- mixing graphics with video input, by definition, degrades the
signal. Even third generation copies can look awful.
Due to a superior custom chip, built by Lola, the Fusion’s degradation is minimalised and it gives one of the cleanest, sharpest, crispest signals of any genlock under £300. Hardly surprising considering that it’s specially made for Amitek by Lola Electronics. The only difference electronically between the Lola A more than welcome addition to the package is the bundling of Scale's cut-down HT100 titler.

The section of the Internet devoted to the Amiga and its users, the Aminet, is similarly large. So big, in fact, that despite the huge storage space of CD- ROMs there has not been a single disc that has contained more than a fraction of the files in the Aminet.
Now, the Aminet Set gives you the chance to sample the delights of the whole of the -Aminet. It's a four-disc collection from Germany that costs £34.99 and covers all the files and programs available from the Aminet as ofjanuary 1995.
CD-ROM round-up Graeme Sandiford reviews and rates the latest CD-ROM releases.
Aminet Set 1 PD Soft 01702 466933 ¦ £34.99 The Aminet is divided into different categories (directories) that contain files and programs that will be of interest to every Amiga user and for ease of use the Aminet Set has also opted for this simple, but accessible format.
The discs each contain several directories that deal with a range of interests. Disc A is an interesting one which features mostly developer’s tools and utility software. But it also seems to be a bit of a spill-over disc, because it also has a bit of everything else too.
Disc B contains graphics programs, pictures and animations, text programs and documents. As you might expect this is the most colourful of the discs and has plenty of good examples of creative uses of the Amiga.
Disc C is a hotbed of activity and you'll find die demo and games directories here, it also has the Comms and hardware files too. The final disc, D, contains all of the business applications, as well as music programs and modules.
“Yippee! The whole off the Aminet in one huge collection.
Buy H!"
91% Overall, this is a highly impressive collection. For the first time you get the whole of the -Aminet. Which means you also get the best the Amiga world has to offer in PD and Shareware too.
Continued overleaf * Now, this is something a little different. It's an Internet CD without any programs. What's the point of that? I here you ask. Well. It is just information, in ASCI, taken from the Internet - after all that's what the Internet is really all about.
At first I was a little sceptical. So, I thought I'd take a quick look at some of the directories and the next thing I knew it was two and half hours later!
Talk about absorbing, there are files about almost any subject you could think of from comics and video games to building satellite systems and the connection between awareness and technology The best thing is that the sources of the information are included, so the next time you log on you'll know where to find all the interesting sites and newsgroups.

Although there are some games, this collection is really aimed at the serious user. There are lots of useful and hard-to-find files such as elusive libraries, new datatypes for Workbench 3 and plenty more. Another fine collection.
This CD-ROM from Germany is devoted to demos. Or to be more precise, the demos the compilers thought were the best of 1994. There are some familiar ones such as 9 Fingers. Big Time Sensuality, Seven Seas and Cream. The demos are compressed on to the disc but can be decompressed surprisingly quickly and most of them are worth waiting for.
Gigantic Games is a CD-ROM stuffed full of more than 1,000 games made up from a mixture of PD, Shareware, demonstrations of commercial releases and some Mac games - which I could find no trace of. Unfortunately, many games didn't work properly on the A1200, despite the best efforts of the Degrader program.

an abundance of 3D or 3D- related CD-ROMs. This is to be
expected because it's an activity that is greedy for storage
space. However, this is far from Almatheras first outing in the
business of producing Amiga CD-ROMs and there's plenty of good
reasons to expect something a little more than the standard 3D
30 Arena is more than a collection of 3D objects and bitmap textures. It has its fair share of these, but it also contains a variety of other files as well as some useful utilities.
You get the impression, after scanning a few directories, that this disc has a great deal of support from users and user groups. A lot of the files and example pictures have come from BBSs. A pleasant surprise was to find the 24Bii Club Scotland's excellent jgAfumv collection - the whole tiling! If you are a user of Imagine you'll tie glad to hear that the CD is not exclusively geared to Lightwave.
You'll also find plenty of Imagine formatted objects to render. There arc also attribute files, tutorials, utilities and example pictures and animations.
Real 30 users will be similarly pleased to find objects, utilities, animations, pictures and tutorials. If you're not a user of this incredibly powerful program, you might like to have a look at the demo version of Heal 30 2.33 that has been included on the disc.
Unlike many other 3D CD-ROMs, 30 Arena has a healthy supply of utilities.
There are simply loads of programs - everything from a directory manager to complete 3D rendering packages. Of particular interest are the conversion and display programs that include MPEG encoders decoders and object convertors.

WELSHPOOL SY21 7SW Driving Test 10 Out Of 10 Educational
Systems ¦ 0114 2780370 ¦ £25.95 Mick Veitch tries to remember
the braking distance at 70 mph while Richard Jones sprechens
some Deutsch.
Back in the old days, when I did my bike lest, the Highway Code section of the test consisted of some bloke standing outside the Test Centre in Newtownards and showing me a One-Way Street sign, a Level Crossing With Cate sign and a 30m ph Speed Limit sign and asking what they meant. These days, things aren't quite so easy and there are moves afoot to make the Highway Code an extensive, written exam.
Given that nearly half of test applicants fail, you could do with all the help you can get. Some sort of interactive educational software seems like a good idea.
10 Out Of 10 are better known for their language and early maths software, so this is a bit of a departure. It uses similar techniques though - six sub-games centred around subject knowledge with definable difficulty levels. Driving lest also allows you to concentrate on specific areas of the code, such as signs, the law. Manoeuvring and motorway driving. This means you can configure the software to test weak areas.
The games involve guessing at a hidden word, identifying a slowly-revealed sign and, somewhat bizarrely, remembering a series of numbers which appear back to front in a simulated rear- Well, it could mean anything really.
“Watch out for large red arrows moving swiftly in the opposite direction" perhaps. If only someone intelligent had designed road signs, the driving test would be easy.
The test is quite tough, but nowhere near as tough as doing a hill-start virtually anywhere in Bath.
View mirror. In order to succeed, you must get 70 per cent. Once you have passed five tests at level four, you can take the full test, which asks the same questions, but in a slightly different way. If you pass, you get a certificate to print out and keep. If you fail, you have to pass five minor tests again.
A useful addition is continental driving. This includes foreign road signs and laws. It isn't part of the UK test, but it ought to be. There is a motorway trivia section as well, for entertainment value.
This software is a useful tool if you are worried about your Highway (tide knowledge (most people can only identity' 40 per cent of today’s road signs), but it could be improved on. The games arc not terribly entertaining, and a hypertext guide to road signs would have been quite useful.

I. UI Q Q H %L H 80% There's something terribly naive about
this one. It's aimed at eight to 16-year-olds but most of
the kids I know in this age group are accomplished games
players who would be more at home with Aladdin, Sensible
Soccer or Mortal Kombat II than with the slow and simple
efforts on offer here.
10 Out Of 10 German 10 Out Of 10 Educational Systems ¦ 0114 2780370 ¦ £25.95 There are six games and the basic premise of all of them is to recognise and match German words. In The Cat you have to place a paw on a button next to the relevant picture as it floats slowly up the screen. In Ski Lift you can save a skier from a terrible accident if you identify various objects correctly. The Wall is a Pong-style game in which you must clear bricks from around an object in order to identify it. And so it goes on.
The greatest disappointment is that if you choose not to save the terribly-digitised chap on the ski lift from crashing into an electricity pylon the game just stops. No frazzled little fella, or bolts of electricity, nothing.
In terms of its accuracy 10 Out Of 10 German seems fine. In terms of imagination it's woeful. And isn't there some cllch* about the best way of getting kids to learn is by capturing their imagination? OK, there are certificates to print out, and difficulty grades to increase the learning curve, and I'm sure that the subject matter is in line with the National Curriculum.
But this is interactive learning at its most basic. The sound consists of a few beeps (in a language program!), some of the pictures are difficult to identify and the games are incredibly simple. I can imagine parents buying this because it seems like the right thing to do and the kids spending many happy hours in their bedroom playing Sensible Soccer. ® 60% meagre Prices OPENING HOURS MAILORDER & SHOP MON-FRI 10AM-7PM SATURDAY 10AM-4PM SUNDAY CLOSED B L A N K i D 1 1 S K S I SO Disks 100 Disks 000 Disks ISO Disks S00 Disks 1000 Disks 1100 92-00 U-00 107-00 114-00 54 00 22-00 40-00 80-00 10-00

Workbench Mick Veitch answers another selection of technical queries from the bulging Workbench postbag, casting light where before there was darkness. Send your letters to: Workbench, Amiga Format, 30 Monmouth Street, Bath, Avon BA1 2BW.
PORT WHINE I have a standard A1200 and I am desperately in need of expert advice. Here are my questions:
1. I have a big problem with my mouse port. Pin 1 seems to be
getting a pulse from the mouse all the time, even with the
mouse out of the port. I went to my local Silica Systems store
and explained the problem but they said they couldn’t repair
it. They did say the cost to repair it would be the grand sum
of £45. Is this true and where can I get my Amiga repaired
because I am spending sleepless nights over it?
2. Some of the A1200 A4000 games that I buy crash whenever I load
them. Is there yet another thing wTong with my Amiga or is it
the software?
3. This is not really my problem, but my friend has an A500 which
is unmodified. He has recently bought a Citizen ABC Printer
but cannot get the darn thing to print across the whole page.
Can you help him?
Stephen Pringle, Tiverton Park, Eastville
1. It sounds like one of the CIA (Complex Interface Adaptor)
chips is faulty. Repairs to A1200s usually involve a
replacement of the entire motherboard (the components are
surface mounted which makes them extremely difficult to remove
and replace) and so £45 is a typical fee.
2. If the CIA is faulty, then there could be other problems too
which would lead to programs crashing. If the Amiga thinks the
joystick or mouse port is always getting a signal it could
cause some programs to misbehave. Obviously AGA software
shouldn't crash a lot on an A1200, because this is the
platform for which it is written. Lack of memory is another
reason for crashes.
3. It sounds like a memory problem to me. If your friend has a
bare A500 with only 512K or 1Mb of WHICH SCANNER?
I’m thinking of buying a black and white scanner such as the Powerscan 4 reviewed in AF61.1 will be starting my GCSE work next year and so there will be a lot of course work involved. Would I be better off saving up for a more expensive colour scanner, or will the Powerscan 4 be OK?
Is Wordworth 3.1 SE worth buying, or do I need to get the full version of Wordworth to get the best results when using a scanner?
N Hardcastle, Halifax, West Yorkshire Colour images are all very well of course, and look very nice on a monitor screen. However, you use three times as much memory so if you are dealing with high- resolution graphics you need at least 4Mb of Fast RAM Printing out colour graphics is your next problem - even assuming you have a colour printer, the images never look as good as they do on screen.
Wordworth 3.1SE works fine with colour graphics, again assuming you have the necessary memory. The
3. ISE version of Wordworth is especially suited to unexpanded
Chip RAM, he could have problems. Alternatively, if he is still using Workbench 1.3, it could be a problem with the printer driver software. The first thing to do is make the printer perform a self-test to check it is working OK. Then try it on your A1200. Then get a memory expansion for the A500 (check the second-hand columns or get on to Fidonet).
PICKING A DRIVER I have recently bought a new printer, the SJ144 made by Star. The printer I bought was only supplied with a Windows driver, could you tell me where I could find the appropriate Amiga driver because I’d like to try colour printing.
Do you know how much HiQ’s PowerStation for the A1200 will cost when it is released?
N Morrison, Portadoum, Northern Ireland Try the Studio Professional printer software from JAM. Call them on 01895 274449 to check if your exact printer is supported. The HiQ system is available now, with empty boxes for £99.95 and with CD-ROM systems for £299.95. Call them on 0181 909 2092 for more details.
LEADING QUESTION I have been given an A500 with no monitor, but I have a Wang monitor. Is it possible to get leads made up to fit the A500 and, if so, will the monitor be compatible with the A500?
Peter Baker.
Nyewood, Hants Unfortunately, you haven't given us die specificatons of the monitor. First, let's assume it's a colour VGA-style one. If so, leads aren't really a Continued overleaf 4 IF YOU HAVE A QUERY... At Amiga Format , _ we aim to answer fas 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 Nick Veitch 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
• 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.
• 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
• 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.
I read with interest your articles on CD-ROM drives, but I'm finding it difficult to ascertain what drive is best for the system that I am running. I would be grateful if you could advise me what the best option would be?
My set-up is an A1200 with a 60Mb internal hard drive, a PC1202-8 board with a 40Mhz co-processor and an extra 4Mb of Fast RAM, an Overdrive 35 340Mb external hard drive fitted through the PCMCIA slot a dual external disk drive and HP500 C printer.
From what I have read it would appear that I will have to disconnect one or other of the extras. Is there such a thing as a splitter lead for the serial port so that you can run two items off the one port?
Also, I have a Commodore 1085S monitor, when they first came out I thought that they were going to replace the 1084 but this is obviously not the case. Can you please tell me what went wrong and if my monitor is likely to be faulty?
Frank Wilson, Torquay, Devon You seem to have used all the interfaces available on your A1200, and that means you will have to lose one of your peripherals to fit a CD-ROM drive. You have two options: a PCMCIA system, or a trapdoor system. Both will eventually utilise a SCSI CD-ROM drive, which costs about £150 to £200 for a doublespeed drive (the minimum you should aim for).
Starting with the trapdoor option, you'll need to replace your current memory and co-processor board with an accelerator featuring a SCSI interface.
This will be an expensive option, although it has the obvious advantage of speeding up your Amiga as well. You should be able to transplant your coprocessor (and memory if it is in SIMM form).
The other approach, and one which I can recommend thoroughly to such a rabid kit collector as yourself, is to replace the Overdrive with a Squirrel SCSI2 Interface. You'll be able to connect a SCSI CD-ROM drive and a SCSI hard drive at the same time, as well as a tape drive, SyQuest drive and any other bits and pieces you may collect.
SCSI-2 hard drives are jolly good value for money at the moment and also extremely fast. You can also sell your Overdrive and not only help pay for it all, but also give some other A1200 owner a chance to use a hard drive system.
Splitting or sharing ports is not possible. You can't connect two PCMCIA interfaces at the same time, and you can't run two serial devices off the same serial port. You can, however, get switching boxes to choose between two serial or parallel peripherals, but you can't run them simultaneously, only switch between them.
The 'new, improved' Commodore monitor had stereo sound and a decent refresh rate, but vanished without trace when CBM got into bother. The only option these days is the Microvitec
• problem. The A1200 A4000 VGA adaptor you see advertised by
companies such as Power Computing or First Computer Centre will
do the job fine. It's a small silver box with a 23-way
connector for Amiga video at one end, and a high- density
VGA-style connector at the other.
However, the A500 only outputs video at 15kHz. Which is the standard used by normal television sets. Most IBM PC-style VGA monitors expect video at about 31kHz. And will not operate with 15kHz signals. Unless the Wang happens to be either a 15kHz monitor, or a multiscan monitor which syncs down to 15kHz, it is unlikely to work with your .Amiga. CD-ROM OPTIONS The A500 Plus came with an enhanced chip set (the F.CS) which generates a special productivity mode. If your A500 can work in this mode there is a faint chance it will work. I say faint because 1 have yet to get this mode working on my
A500 Plus.
If the monitor is monochrome, it may have a standard phono-style 15kHz video input. If so, the A500 has a very clear mono output (a single socket at the far right of the case looking from the back) which will drive it without problems.
MEMORY MESSAGE occ O oo oc Impressive, isn't it. But to do things like this in Imagine takes up a lot of memory.
I am having problems with your Imagine Coverdisk from AF53.1 can only render small stuff such as the first item (a donut) in your first tutorial.
Otherwise, a message comes up saying Not Enough Memory. I am new to 3D rendering and would love to be able to do 3D rendered animations. My computer specification is an A1200 with 2Mb of RAM and a 120Mb hard disk.
I am also having trouble with the Pixel Pro 3D Coverdisk. I cannot even get this running - it comes up with a high-resolution screen and a window saying Not Enough Memory To Run.
Could you please tell me how to run this?
Do you know if there is a cheap add-on to make my A1200 into a A4000 or better?
Could you please do a section on how to set up your own Bulletin Board System, I am sure many people would like to know how to do this?
I would also like to know how to set up a modem to answer a call and act as a host so you can type across the lines to another modem instead of going voice.
Your BBS is great. Have you noticed how easy it is to get pirate numbers across a BBS on-line chat? Do you know when new Amigas and hardware will be back in the shops?
Jonathan Sutherland, Edinburg When your application programs bomb out with a Not Enough Memory error. I'm afraid that about says it all. You need more memory. You can squeeze more out of what you have by making sure you aren't wasting any. For example, the default Workbench display uses up a lot so use the Prefs Screenmodes to set an NTSC 200-line, low- resolution. Two-colour screen to minimise the amount in use.
Failing that, you must sell a family member to get more memory. Thankfully, this will probably only be an unwanted pet, because expansion cards are becoming more reasonably priced. A memory card (or accelerator and memory) is one of the two things which will make your A1200 a lot more fun to use. The second thing is a hard drive.
The Pixel 3D Pro Coverdisk bug was due to unexpanded A1200s not having any Fast memory.
We included a fix on the next disk, although there are several utilities lurking in the Public Domain which will get it working for you.
Do you think that if there was a cheap way to turn A1200s into A4000s anyone would have spent about £800 more on an A4000 to start with? Why do you want to turn your A1200 into an A4000? If you need a faster processor there are plenty of 50mHz 68030 cards to choose from, which will happily provide 8Mb or more of RAM.
Unfortunately, there is currently no way to add a faster processor to the A1200. If you need Zorro slots to connect graphics cards, you need to buy one of the excellent Z5 expansion boxes from Ramiga (01690 770304). If you only want a big box and separate keyboard, then watch this space.
Setting up a Bulletin Board is not easy, although there is plenty of excellent Amiga software to choose from. Wfe hope to cover this in a forthcoming issue. As for pirate boards, ELSPA (01386 830642) and FAST (01628 660377) would be interested to hear about them. And remember: if vou can easily find the pirate boards, so can the police. Do you really want your name and telephone number stored on the hard drive of a pirate board which could be under observation for dealing in stolen goods?
When the new Amiga company rises from the ashes, you can bet there will be a resurgence of interest large enough to ensure that dealers will start to get more Amiga kit in stock.
JUMBLED ICONS When I switch on my A600 it boots straight into Workbench 2.05. When I click on the system 2.0 icon and then on the Prefs icon, I get into the Prefs drawer but half of the icons in the drawer are overlapping each other or half are off the screen and generally jumbled up.
I have tried to put them in their right places but when I re-enter the Prefs drawer they are jumbled up again. Do you know how I can put them right permanently?
Andrew Davis, London There is a dead easy way to tidy the icons automatically. Select the window you want to sort out, and then use the Window menu option Clean Up. On the A1200 and A4000 you can hold down right-Amiga and full-stop.
Making the icon positions permanent requires the locations to be saved to disk. First of all, make sure that there is some free space on the disk (only a tiny amount of space is required, but a 100 per cent full disk will not work) and that the disk's write-protecl tab isn't set. Then tidy up all the icons and use the menu option Snapshot... All from the Window menu.
DISCOVERING DISCS I own an A600 with a 1Mb upgrade. Can I connect a CD32 to my Amiga and would it be possible to run CDTV discs on the CD52? Also, could I unpack DMS files and save them from CD to my internal disk drive?
I know this is all fairly simple, but please could you reply to my letter because 1 am a new Amiga user, and don't have a clue.
Susan Day, Sliirebrook, Notts You can connect a CD to an A600, but because the C.D32 doesn't have any standard Amiga interface ports to make the job easy, you'll need some extra bits and pieces. You can either use a desire called Communicator (see AF70 for a full review and turn to page 129 for details of the Communicator offer) or a special serial cable and CD-ROM available from Brian Fowler Computing (01392 499755).
The CD32 does not play all CDTV disks because its ROM is slightly different from the CDTV, CD-ROMs which contain only files (for example, the Aminet series) work perfectly, but many of the specific CDTV titles don't work, or perform oddly - no sound for example.
When you connect the CD32 to another .Amiga it usually works in such a way that the CD drive appears as a standard Workbench device like dfO:, VISTA WOE I own an A500 with 1Mb of RAM and i'm having a lot of problems with the HAM mode on Dpaint IV.
I'm trying to overlay a screen grab from a game (which I grabbed with my Action Replay II cartridge) on to a Vista Pro picture. But every time ADD-ON ADVICE I have an A1200 with no expansions or upgrades and I would be obliged if you could answer some questions for me about hardware add-ons.
1. Does a SCART TV give as good a picture quality as a Microvitec
2. Which is the best low-price CD-ROM drive for the A1200?
3. Could you recommend a decent hard drive and tell me how much
memory is best?
4. How do you make your magazine so colourful, interesting and
informative for such a price?
Anon, Somewhere
1. No. Although a SCART TV gives a better picture than a normal
TV (which gets the Amiga display through a UHF modulator:
basically a Iow-power transmitter) it isn't a patch on a
dedicated monitor. A monitor not only gives a much crisper
display, but a monitor such as the Microvitec will also be
able to display larger screen displays with no flickering
because it works at a faster scan rate than normal
Ram: or hdO:. I'he CD-ROM usually appears as cdO:. This means you can copy or uncompress DMS files with no problems.
SCREEN TEST I have an A1200 and have just been given an Amiga monitor. The problem is, when 1 tried to get a lead nobody seemed to know which one was required. The monitor came with a lead which was apparently used on a PC. It has an 8-pinjack plug on the monitor end and a 9-pin D plug on the computer end.
I have made some inquiries and have been told that there is a lead to link a Philips (Amiga) monitor via the SCART socket on the monitor.
One expert told me there was every possibility of damaging my Amiga beyond repair, but another said that all that could happen was that the monitor wouldn't work.
The monitor has a flap on the front apart from the controls. There are two push-buttous.
That I try to load in both pictures, they both stick their palettes on to section A of the whole palette. Can you tell me if there is any way of getting a picture to load its colour set on to another section?
J Ambrose, Chelmsford, Essex
2. The Power CD-ROM drive is currently the best value- for-money
drive. See AF70 for a full review.
3. If you get the Power CD-ROM drive you'll also be able to fit a
SCSI hard drive for a minimal cost. Adding another 4Mb of RAM
via a trapdoor card (to make a total of 6Mb) will give a very
usable system.
4. We pay our small, but perfectly formed, freelance team with
the small polystyrene chips used as packing material instead
of money.
One says green, the other RGB. Also, on the front there is an Amiga motif, and on the back there is a paper label which says Amiga Type 1081 UK.
A Anderton, Manchester What a lot of very silly computer dealers there are out there. Your monitor will connect to your Amiga without problems. After all. It is a standard Amiga monitor and even says so on it. .-Vll you need is a normal Amiga monitor lead. It has a 23- way Amiga video port plug at one end, and the necessary 9-pin plug for the monitor at the other.
This lead is available from all knowledgable Amiga dealers for a few pounds: try giving Trilogic a call on 01274 691115. I doubt very much that you'll break an .Amiga by connecting it to a monitor. You would probably have to custom- make your own cable and wire it up specifically to cause any serious damage. But it is possible to break the monitor by connecting incorrectly. O There are at least two ways of solving your problem.
Now, you haven't said so, but I imagine that your screen grab is a 16-colour job. Not another HAM screen. You could do it the difficult way - manually swapping palette values around - or you can do it the easy way.
Me? I like to do things the easy way. This is what you should do: Iload in the HAM picture (this is a rather nice Vista Pro image of Olympus Mons).
Make sure you choose the screen mode of the picture, or at least a HAM screen. If you are short on memory, your screen size can be smaller than the image to save memory.
2 Press 'j'. This flips you to the spare page. Now load in your grab picture. A requester will appear, asking if you want to change the screen format - just say no. The picture will load in. And should be in its correct colours (because it is on a HAM screen, and all colours are available).
3 Now edit the picture, cutting out whatever you don't want. Select the area that you do want as a brush, and press 'j' again to flip back to the original page.
4 Your brush will probably have appeared in all sorts of horrible colours. But that's OK. From the colour menu, use the Brush Remap option. With less colour resolution, you may get an unsatisfactory result, but we are working in HAM mode, so it should be spot on.
5 Now you can plonk the brush down anywhere you like. We used Dpaint V for this, but the same technique works in Dpaint IV.
I hope this sorts you out, and that we'll be seeing some of your work in the Gallery section soon.

Ultimate AMOS If you want to write fast arcade games then you
need to know how to keep track of bobs quickly and efficiently.
Jason Holborn is the man with the theory.
We've got an excellent competition for you this month. The 50 lucky winners will all carry off copies of IntOS, the intuition expansion for AMOS and AMOS Professional, worth £30 each.
To win one of these prizes, all you have to do is answer the questions and send them on a postcard to the address below 3 What does the term bob stand for?

Ultimate AMOS?
Send your entries to: Amiga Format IntOS Comp OTM Publications & Promotions PO Box 4490, 5 Albert Road, Tamworth, Staffs B79 7HY Closing date May 11,1995 One of the most difficult aspects of writing an arcade game that uses animated sprites is not the process of coding the various movement routines, hut the logistics involved in keeping track of each and evert' object. The fact is, keeping tabs on more than two or three objects at any one time is not only confusing, but can be extremely code-intensive too.
This may not pose too much of a problem if you're writing an arcade game that uses computer- controlled objects that follow the same path - an attack pattern in a shoot-em-up, for example. But life can get very hairy if each object hits its own unique movement pattern which is either pre-set (the object dumbly follows a path defined by the programmer - this is the approach that many early platform games employed) or generated using an intelligent movement routine. Although it's not difficult to code the movement routine itself, how do you keep track of each object?
If you've ever indulged in a bit of light-hearted Cprogramming (if such a thing is possible) then you'll already know the answer - data structures.
As any C programmer will tell you, data structures can be an absolute godsend to games programmers because they enable you to lump several different variables together under a single variable heading.
Unfortunately, AMOS doesn't support real data structures (unlike Acid's Blilz Basic) so most AMOS coders have to make do with the more-than- capable arrays facility.
AMOS allows us to create arrays consisting of many dimensions. A single dimensional array such as ALIEN(5), for example, could be used to hold either a single item of information on five individual objects or five individual bits of information on a single object. As I’m sure you'll appreciate, this isn't really that useful. Thankfully, you can extend the amount of information that a single array can hold by increasing the number of dimensions assigned to an array. Take an array such as AI,IEN(5,10) - this is far more useful because it can hold 10 individual items of data on five different
alien objects.
1 Which AMOS command enables doublebuffering of screens?
2 Which AMOS command swaps the double- buffered screens?
Each baddic on the platforms is controlled using a single routine, which interprets the data held in each object's data structure.
If you're writing games, data structures enable you to keep track of bobs and produce efficient code.
Most professional games programmers make extensive use of data structures when writing arcade games because they provide a simple, yet very efficient, way of keeping track of many independent objects.
1 lowever, once you start to code complex arcade games, you'll soon come to realise that data structures arc the only way to control object movement without your code grinding to a halt.
After you've defined your data structure, integrating it into the game is easy because you can write a single section of code that deals with every object. All you need to do is to define a loop that is performed for however many objects are held in the data structure. Anyway, that's enough ol the theory - on the opposite page there’s a little demonstration program for you to chew on. *2?
DEFINING DATA STRUCTURES Before you can define your data structure, there's a fair amount of planning that needs to be carried out. For starters, you need to know how many individual objects your game needs. Don't think in terms of how many objects are displayed during the entire course of a single game (in most cases, objects will be reused), but how many objects are displayed on-screen at any one time. Then add five to this figure so you've got a little room to work with.
Tutorial Once you've done this, you need to decide what items of data each object requires. When designing data structures, it's always best to lump together objects of the same type - you might for example, have aliens in one data structure, asteroids in another and so on - so that the contents of each data structure element (the section of a data structure assigned to a single object) remains the same for every object in that data structure.
Take, for example, a typical data structure for a group of alien spacecraft. Here's all the necessary code that would be required to define such a data structure. Note how I've also included comments after the definition so that you can quickly and easily find out what each data item holds. Try to get into the habit of commenting on your source code - it may save you many hours of debugging later.
NUMSCRAFT = 20 Dim S_CRAFT(NTJMSCRAFT,6) Rem S_CRAFTCn,0) = Status C0=destroyed, Inactive) Rem S_CRAFT(n, 1) = X position of spacecraft Rem *** S_CRAFTCn,2) = Y position of spacecraft Rem ••* S_CRAFTCn,3) = Direction Rem "** S_CRAFT(n,4) = Speed Rem *** S_CRAFTCn,5) = Animation frame no.
THE JOY OF STICKS Now we've learned how to keep track of the computer-controlled objects, the next step is to add an object that can be controlled by the player. Although some games use the mouse or keyboard to control objects, by far the most common device used by Amiga gamers is the digital joystick. All Amigas offer two control ports, one of which is usually occupied by a mouse. You can, however, read joystick inputs from both ports by reading the values returned by the AMOS functions Joy(O) and Joy(1).
These values are in the form of a bit pattern. That is, each direction of movement is assigned its own bit in an 8-bit value. If several joystick directions are performed simultaneously, the two bits are combined to produce a new value. Don’t let bit patterns worry you - AMOS automatically translates them into decimal values which can easily be decoded. Translating the values returned by the two joystick functions is simple because they are nothing more than combinations of five basic values which have the following meaning: 1 = Joystick pushed up 2 = Joystick pushed down 4 = Joystick pushed
left 8 = Joystick pushed right 16 = Joystick fire button pressed If you want to see if the player is pushing the joystick up, just check to see whether Joy(2) returns a value of 1. Diagonals are just as simple. If you wanted to check if the joystick was being pushed up and left all you’d have to do is to check for a value of 5 (that's 1 for up plus 4 for left). Here's a short listing for you to try.

Lais ¦ Size 1 ¦ Bold ¦ Anchor ¦ Nunbered ¦ Mai Ito ¦ Size 2 Fixed Width Address Def init ion Neus V Size 3 V Italic V Line Break V Unnunbered V Telnet V Web pages are simply text files with a few special bits in 'em. This is HTML Heaven running with Cygnus Ed.
Top nit. Te Width Future Publishing are doing it, Sony are doing it and Bianca is doing it in her sntut shack. The Daily Telegraph are doing it, the Andy Warhol Museum is doing it on silk screens and Microsoft are doing it for themselves, but somebody else has done it for Kylie Minogue. What are they all doing? Getting on to the World Wide Web (WWW for short).
So what is it? Well, that question has been answered to death, but here's the short answer for any newcomers out there. The WWW is a graphical interface for the Internet. So, instead of typing long commands, you click on buttons with the mouse and look at pictures on the screen.
Hurrah for the on-going advance of technology!
Most of the examples I mentioned above are big companies trying to flog their wares, but that's not the be all and end all of the WWW. Much of the stuff you can find on it is put up by individuals.
From fan clubs to TV cameras in people's toilets, there are all sorts of things on the Web. So how do you put your Own stuff up there?
Although it all looks hideously complex, creating your own WWW pages is pretty simple.
Each page is really just a text file with a few commands (in angled brackets) stuck in for good measure. The format of these files is called HTML (HyperText Markup Language). These commands (usually referred to as Tags) can do anything from displaying an image to creating a link to another page. For instance, if you had a line such as : A HREF=HTTP: www.futurenet. oo.uk index.html Futurenet A it would create a link (shown as blue underlined text) to Futurenet, Future Publishing's own WWW site. If the user were to click on this, they would be taken to this other site. This sort of power
means that it is incredibly easy to skip around the globe.
One click could take you from a site in the UK to Want to set up your own World Wide Web pages?
Richard Baguley looks at how to do just that.
One in Japan and the user wouldn't necessarily even know it had happened.
Graphics are also added in a similar way.
Instead of including the graphics in the text file they are brought up by another Tag. For instance: IMG SRC=HTTP: wherever.co.uk bleurgh.gif would put the image bleurgh.gif on the page. The bit beginning with HTTP: is the URL (Unique Resource Locator), which tells the Web browser where the graphic file is stored. Because HTML is designed to be used on any machine, it's best lo use an easily converted format such as GIF or JPEG, because most Pcs can't cope with IFF files.
You could create pages with any text editor, but it's best to use one designed for the purpose.
There are several available on the Amiga, but the two best ones are Heddley and HTML Heaven.
Heddley is an editor which was originally designed for creating and editing AmigaGuide documents, but more recent versions have been able to create and edit WWW pages as well.
In practice, the two types of document are quite similar, with both having hypertext links and the like. Heddley is pretty easy to use. Although it does require some thought as to the structure of your document before you start. Frankly, this is a good thing to do anyway, so it's not a problem.
HTML Heaven works in a slightly different way.
It's not an editor in its own right, but a set of programs which work with an editor such as (ygnus Ed or Edge. The HTML Tags are created by a series of Arexx macros which can he used from within the editor. So, you can set it up to add the Tag for an address by simply selecting it from a menu. It also comes with a document which explains what all the HTML Tags mean, which I haven’t got space to do. Both programs are available from any Aminet site (such as src.doc.ic.ac.uk, in the directory aminetNtextMiyper) or from any decent PD company or BBS.
So now you know the basics of creating your own Web pages. How do you let other people look at them? You have to put them somewhere where people can get at them any time, 24 hours a day.
After all, with a global network like the Internet, you never know where people are going to be calling from. You could, in theory, link your Amiga to the Internet, but this is expensive and fiddly. I wouldn't consider it unless you have a lot of money and time to use up. If you do, contact me and I'll see what I can work out to help you.
Most of you will be accessing the Internet through a service provider (SP) such as Demon (0181 371 1234) or .NetKonnect (0171 345 7777).
When you want to connect to the Internet you call them up on your modem and you're off. What you may not realise is that many Sps offer a service where they store the pages for you. So, all you do is call the SP, upload your pages, hang up and anybody on the Internet can then access them.
Demon charge you £25 per month for up to 10Mb of space, but some are now thinking of offering this as part of their standard package.
Check with your friendly neighbourhood SP for more details and get webbed! *2?

PIRATE POLITICS Since I bought my Amiga four years ago, I have been using nothing but pirated software, apart from the occasional boxed package. I know diis is stealing, so I have decided to send the relevant amount of cash to the programmers each time I buy a pirated program. For example, if I bought a pirated game that's worth £25.99. I would send £5.25 to the programmers. I worked this out from the article on the price of games in AF51.
Because 1 am not buying from retailers or distributors, I only have to pay die £9.95 to the publisher.
Since 1 am not using any of the publisher's disks, boxes, manuals, marketing or repro, 1 only owe the publisher £5.25. Is there something wrong widi this idea?
I don't think that I will ever break the habit of buying pirate software as long as games are so expensive. Street Fighter II. For example, was NOT worth the price, and I would never pay that much for such a sad attempt to get money from buyers by putting the Street Fighter logo on a box containing cheaply programmed software that isn't worth the disk it's on.
If the price of games was less, I would buy original software. A lot of my friends have also agreed to send money to die programmers each time they get a pirate game.
.4 Reforming Pirate, Somewhere Piracy is still stealing, no matter whether you send money to the programmers or not. I agree that sometimes games are not worth thr money you pay for them, that is why we review them. Hut copying games is quite simply illegal. appreciate that you have gone to the effort of sending some money to the programmers, but that dorsn 'I make it all right.
I think that a lot of people who write to your magazine, to which I am a loyal subscriber, are being very short sighted. You rave oil about what a great machine the Amiga is and how bad the PC is, without thinking.
Fewer software houses are backing the Amiga now. You only have to look through the last few issues of Afto see this. Although Photogenics got 95 per cent, I wonder how well it compares to Corel Draw or Photoshop. The same is true of games.
There are excellent games out now on the PC such as Gabriel Knight, Little Big Adventure and Doom, the likes of which we will never see.
Please do not think I am signing the Amiga olf, I love the machine, but please be realistic in future.
Philip Stephenson, psteph@optimal.exnet.com I'll tell you exactly how Photogenics compares to Photoshop - very well indeed. For a start, it runs in only 2Mb of memory . Secondly, the paint layer can be dynAMIGAlly altered and different effects and settings can be chosen before it is Jixed. I suppose now you it be saying that Lightwave is very good for an Amiga program, but how would it rate against real software like 3D Studio ?
Right, Amiga software is nap really, which is why they use it for Babylon 5, Robocop, Star Trek, SeaQuest... gel a life. If you think software is really better on the PC because you have to pay WOO for it and you need 16Mb of RAM lo run it, then good luck to you and your bank manager. I guess we II all hair to fust get by with a more usable system at a fraction of the price.
Oh, and you '11 neiter see a decent version of Sensi Soccer on the PC, not if you want to play against your mates.
EVEN MORE OUTRAGEOUS I have just read the letter Quite Outrageous (AF69) and I cannot agree more with the writer who pointed out the Afbias towards the A1200 and A4000 at the expense of the A500. The headline Quite Outrageous must be referring to the reply. The magazine is far more A1200 than is being made out. I remember reading a couple of months ago that there are more A500s in use than all other Amigas put together. If J R Drinkall’s letter hurt Amiga Format's feelings, then Continued overleaf • THE BITS ON THE SIDE AUTOMATIC FOR THE PEOPLE LETTER FROM AMERICA As an avid (or is it rabid)
reader of all serious Amiga magazines, I'm particularly struck by the attitude in the letters columns toward the USA and its users. There seems to be some kind of underlying resentment towards us and I've become a little irked. Some of the writers tend to dance on the boundary between humour and prejudicial sarcasm.
I would plead with you to chill with that adolescent silliness, and realise that in a global, internetted, infobahned super-village, we're all bozos on this bus.
We'd better stick together or the ride's over. So how about being first on your rack to give us the following:
1) US Amiganauts tend to have more disposable income than most
other users, so how about letting us know if games you review
run on NTSC a 68030-040 A3000 or 1200 (yeah, that's right a
68030 1200. We don't tend to accept Commodore's
configurations), or A4000.
2) Stop using AF to croon about your Macintoshes. We know Mac
software is cool, but our Emplants run the Mac stuff just fine
on those rare occasions we need to.
3) I don't know if you have any figures on your circulation in
the States, but we pay about $ 12.50 for an issue and even if
there are only a few of us, please try to be fair and
accommodate the specific needs of the US Amiga Pioneer.
Frank Salvatini, President. Metropolitan Amiga Computer Enthusiasts.
Roselle, Illinois USA You started it by throwing all that tea in the harbour, you ungrateful rotters. Er, I don't think there is any real animosity towards our US cousins. Just so long as you don't go on about how rich you are, and can afford accelerators and that. OK. Lets give you some answers...
1) Aarrrrrgh! You evil swine, you had your chance. The missiles
are flying, there is no turning back... we try to give as much
information as possible. I don't see that the NTSC thing is a
problem, unless you are buying games direct from the UK. And
if you all have A 1200s and can obviously afford a decent
monitor, you can run PAL software anyway.
2) I don't think we do. The art people like their Macs, but they
don't know any better.
3) I'm pleased to tell you the overseas subscription rate has now
dropped to £84.97 (USS133), so it would be cheaper to
subscribe, and have your issue airmailed out.
Just an idea for Amiga on-line services on Futurenet - how about a mailing list for Amiga takeover news? I know that you currently have the automated response via CBM News, but I think it would be even better to allow users to subscribe to the list, and then you can E-mail the list and everyone subscribed to it gets the latest news. What do you think?
Oliver Roberts.
E-mail Quite simply, at the moment we don't have the time or the software to set up and maintain a mailing list. Also, our network probably wouldn't be able to take the strain, because from what I can gather from the current service, there would be more than 1,000 messages sent each time.
That goes beyond the scope of the desktop machine and the network it is connected to at the moment.
Hopefully we will be able to do things like this in future, but at the moment you'll have to bear with us.
PAD PROB I have a problem with my CDTV control pad. The A and 8 buttons are sprung by a rubber pad which is breaking up due to constant use. Can you tell me if a replacement pad is available, and where from, or if I will have to buy a new remote?
Cwmbran. Gwent I shouldn't think that you can buy a separate pad for your CDTV, but you could try asking CPC. The authorised Commodore spares dealer. Give them a call on 01772 654455 and they will at least let you have a new controller for £20.78 plus VAT.
4* maybe that is a good thing - we might get some more articles aimed at users of the older Amigas. We are still out there.
Graeme Wilson.
Uniivrsity Of Hull OK. I surrender. We'll slart reidewing all that umnderful ASIKFonly software that's been coming out recently. Hr were going to ignore it because we're not interested.
Nout we can give pages and pages to er, well that s where it all falls down really.
,4.v said (quite clearly I thought I. we can only review what is released.
The features are still just as much use to anylnuly. Workbench tends to concentrate more on ,412 K)s. But that's because, not surprisingly, more .41200 owners wnte in. don V quite see what you expect us to do. We go to great pains to make sure, as far us possible, that Coverdisks are A 5U0 compatible. Then you complain that the packages are old.
DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE 1 have been getting .4 ever since Issue 13 and have enjoyed every issue, but I have not felt strongly enough to write in before, that is till now. Since the demise of the big C everyone who has an Amiga has been waiting with baited breath to find out what the future Amiga holds. Some have ran out of puff but others like myself and everyone who reads ,4 have been hanging on to every precious breath. The last thing we devotees need are people trying to tell us our computers are dead.
In Issue 69 of Amiga Format on pages 60-61 there is an ad for Indi Direct & Calculus who have been advertising in AFTor years supposedly supporting the Amiga.
Now they are trying to tell us that the Amiga is dead. Itt their ad it says: 'The Amiga was a great product but technology marches on. Have you compared the cost of a full Amiga system to a Multimedia PC?' And then they compare an A1200 against a 33Mhz PC.
Well, this hardly proves that the PC is better than the Amiga. The bit that really gets on my nerves is comparing the Amiga to a 1970s computer that you have to add bits to like a Meccano set to get a decent system. Even then von have lo set up all the different drives for the mouse and CD-ROM, load Windows, add a soundcard and extra RAM and when this is all done lind out that you’ve used up most of that valuable memory, halved your processing speed by using Windows and that your processor has a bug in it. And you call that technology moving on.
David McEioy, Garelochhead, Dumbartonshire couldn 't possibly agree more.
Have you fallen out of favour with the software houses? I say this because recently you seem to be falling behind in your game reviews.
For Christmas I received Death Mask for the CD52, yet I'd never heard of the game, fortunately it turned out to be quite good. There will probably be a review in next month's issue I thought, but no. The review didn't appear till the March issue, nearly two months later.
I DpcAljfc CAPE
A. P.C. MANGA DREAMSCAPE by A Gardener, New Zealand by Anon,
Cheshire by Simon Philips. Kent My version of Untouchables
(Ocean Software) is knackered. I wonder if anybody knows where
I can get a copy. Perhaps you could begin a section for this
kind of problem?
I would also like to know if you could recommend any good fruit machine simulators because I can no longer afford to keep playing the real things. I've seen a number in your PD adverts but I am not sure which ones are good or not.
UNTOUCHABLES UNPLAYABLE Any ideas? (I have an A600HD with Workbench 2.05). Neil Ruttley, Spalding, hues I think we should start a section. At the moment we are looking for Untouchables. Great Ghiana Sisters and most importantly. Sword Of Aragon. There's not a lot to choose between PD fruit machine sims.
Talk to your local PD library.
THE MAN AT THE TOP Write to Amiga International managing director David Pleasance do Amiga Format, 30 Monmouth St, Bath BA1 2BW.
I thought this was maybe a one off but at the end of January I visited my local games shop and there on the shelf was Theme Park CD32 yet there had not been so much as a release date in your pages, despite the fact it is probably one of the most eagerly-awaited titles among CD owners, and there is still no sign of a review or even a mention.
I understand Al"s policy of not reviewing games till they arc officially released (which I totally agree with), and that because it’s a monthly mag some games may arrive too late in the office to be included, but 1 cannot understand why some games are released months before the review appears. Have software companies become so worried about receiiing a bad review, that they release their games first and get as much money as possible before they allow it to be reviewed? Rise Of The Robots springs to mind.
Kenneth Gordon, Giiidepnst. Northumberland COVERDISK CORNER NOT ENTIRELY SATISFIED I would like to know why you put Photogenics and Super League Manager on the Coverdisks (AF69)?
Photogenics only works on a machine with Workbench
3. 0 or above, so why didn't you put extra Coverdisks on with a
program everybody could use? I felt sorry for my A600 having
to put up with Super League Manager in its disk drive for the
whole one minute it was in there.
Neil Schofiled.
Runcorn, Cheshire Do you know how many ground-breaking art packages were released recently that work on 1.3 machines in S12K? Not many. It is difficult deciding what to put on the Coverdisk. And sometimes we think it's better to have something very good, rather than something not very good that everyone can use. I'm sorry you didn't like the games disk, but a lot of other people did.
ANTI-DEMO DEMO The Coverdisks on issues 68 and 69 did not contain full programs, but only demos What good are these to anybody? Most other magazines carry full utilities, so why have you stopped?
J Caris, my I®pavilion, co. Uli We haven't stopped. We are still trying to offer the best disks for all our readers. This month you have a very good, commercial music package on the disk, but I guarantee that next month my mailbag will be filled with complaints from people who don't like music. OK, Death Mask is a bit of a special case.
My husband and I have been loyal Commodore users since we owned a Commodore 64. We upgraded through the A500 and now own an A1200 with extra memory, accelerator card and hard drive.
We recently purchased a CD- ROM and have discovered, to our dismay, that there is very little software available. We require more serious software like Insight Dinosaurs or flight sims. In fact, after touring a computer exhibition we were tempted to sell the whole shooting match and buy a PC.
Can you tell us if you are going to encourage software houses to produce new CD-ROM CD32 software? Unless you back this aspect of the Commodore business, I cannot see how you are going to The publishers sent us a copy before Christmas, but unfortunately it seemed lo get lost in the Christmas post. By the time we did get our hands on a copy, it was too late for the issue we were working on.
So it had to wait until Ihe next one.
We need to receive games about four weeks before our on-sale date to give time to review them, design the pages, print the issues and get them in the shops.
Sometimes (as with Theme Park ) games companies work so close to deadlines, that they can V get us a copy much before the release dale, which obviously means we can'I review them. Sometimes we seem to fall off the mailing list of a few games companies, and it would indeed be quicker for us to nip down to the local software emporium and buy a co ry ourselves. But even if you see a really neat game on the shelves, read the review first.
Indeed, maybe the Amiga Sho iperand Amiga Power offices. You could give a profile on everyone, what their job entails, how they do it and how they fit into the production of the magazine. It could also give us an insight into how the magazine is made from planning to printing.
AF, THE MOVIE Why not make a video Inside Amiga Format where you show the viewers around die Amiga Format, and so at least we've got that sorted now. No more demos.
Finally we are all agreed. Ooh. Hang on a minute... PRO-DEMO DEMO After getting a copy of Amiga Shopper, I noticed that Amiga Format is lacking some features such as reader ads and programming tutorials. Yes. I know that we're going through AMOS at the moment but how about C and Pascal or Assembly (again). Thanks for the Photogenics demo which I found interesting and useful.
Philip Stephenson.
Malta There are differences between the two mags We don't have as many tutorials in AF, and the ones we do tend to be related to our Coverdisks. So you liked the Photogenics demo. Why can't these readers ever make up their minds ? Any minute now someone is going to say they don't want commercial software at all... MORE UTILITIES I disagree with every Amiga magazine putting full-price programs on the disks. I would much prefer one of the disks to be full of PD utilities and games. At least with a disk full of PD utilities, if you don't like one there is a fair chance that you will like one of
the others.
Gareth Carroll, E-mail Oh dear. That about runs the whole gamut of possible opinions on this. I think this is a debate that will run and run. Its been going on as long as I have owned an Amiga. I think this is one that is going to have to go to the Amiga Format Forum (see page 146).
Hope to compete against the new tide of Pcs.
Kathy Anderson, Bradford. West Yorkshire r Commodore's difficulties over the past year have definitely affected the continuing development of CD- based software, and, as such, I have complete empathy with your situation. I can absolutely assure you that if our management buyout is successful, we have already made plans to fully support further CD-ROM development even to the point (where appropriateI to cofound some titles. I am pleased to report that we understand that the new Elite product is to be released on CD. And you must buy TFX which is a stunning flight sim.
I think this video would be a big hit with the readers. Nearly everybody is interested in what makes Amiga Format tick. So get that camera out and start shooting! If you need someone to front this video, 1 would be happy to oblige.
Michael David Taylor.
Warrington. Cheshire I don V think the world is ready. It is hard to see us carrying off the Palme D'Or for two hours worth of shouting, swearing, crying and drinking.
I 'm sure the censors would have great difficulty with it, and we d be left with about two minutes offootage if we wanted lo even get an IS rating. However, if you are a subscriber, you'll often be treated to a (far too) detailed look of the day-to-day business of the magazine, courtesy of the Backstage neivsletler.
CLUB TOGETHER I’m starling an Amiga club called L’nderworld. And 1 seriously need some AMOS programmers who can help build a mag. Issue one has been made and if anyone wants a copy, write to me or phone me on the number below.
David White, 23 Thistleneuk, Old Kilpatrick, Glasgow, Scotland G60 SLY Tel: 0141 873072 I'd certainly like to see a copy.

Experience the thrill of stalking an alien enemy through a maze of corridors in our fantastic game demos.
This demo only works on AGA machines - A1200 AND A4000.
Alien Breed 3D Steve Bradley loads your gun and points you in the right direction to enter two worlds of alien menace.
ALIEN BREED 3D CONTROLS: Press K for keyboard, J for joystick pad and M for mouse control. On keyboard control, use the cursors to move around, the Alt key to fire and the Space Bar to open doors and operate devices. If you wish to run. But we know you won't hold down the Shift key.
Truly, we can confidently claim that this is not only Amiga Format's best games Coverdisk ever, but also the finest offering from any magazine. In the history of all things. Ever. Team 17‘s glorious first- person perspective. Alien Breed J J (A1200 A4000 only) goes head-to-head against an excellent and exclusive level of Alternative's already-released shoot-a-thon, Itrath Mask.
The lirst-person perspective (like where you would be if you were the camera, or if you were really there oh, go on with you, you know what I mean) shoot-em-up is a much-lauded sub-genre following the explosion in popularity of the games, primarily lor the PC.
Software companies have been falling over themselves to release Doom and Wol enslrin clones for the Amiga, but let us not forget that games such as Jurassic Park (in sections) and Hired Guns have already tackled the subject, so there is nothing incredibly original about first-person shoot-em-ups. But Alieu Breed 3D looks the most likely Amiga contender, with fabulous Gouraud shaded graphics, texture mapping and a remarkably swift 3D engine.
At the the start, you’ll be facing a wall. Turn around. As the large green monsters approach, centre them on screen and unleash a swift volley of lire via the Alt key mouse joystick. Keep a look out for extra ammo and health pick-ups, and be sure to walk over them in the centre of the screen otherwise you'll find you have not picked them up. It can be a bit fiddly but you'll soon get the hang of it. Oh. And you'll need to access a door to get to the next part of the level - so keep your eyes open. Good luck.
READ THIS FIRST Have you got both this month's Coverdisks?
The games disk is so packed to the gills that we’ve had to put all the decompression scripts on the Bars&Pipes disk. To access any ot the programs this month, you will have to boot up from Coverdisk A (Bars&Pipes). Be ready to follow the instructions and have three blank, formatted disks ready. Once the disks have been uncompressed, you can either boot from the games disks, or boot from Workbench first and then insert the Bars&Pipes disk. Note, the Coverdisk has samples for use with Bars&Pipes.
Release a volley of fire as the particular breed of aliens But if they get this close and you haven't yet got in an approach and, if accurate, a bloody mess you'll make. Accurate shot, what the hell have you been doing?
BACKING UP YOUR COVERDISK 2 Type in the following line exactly as it appears here, taking care to put the spaces in the correct places: DISKCOPY FROM DFO: TO DFO: 3 When asked for the source disk, insert the Coverdisk and press Return. All of the information on this disk will then be copied from the disk into memory.
4 Once your Amiga has read the info, it will ask for the destination disk. Insert the disk you want to copy to and press Return. All information on this disk will be destroyed.
5 On an unexpanded machine, the Amiga may ask for the source disk again, because it copies in chunks. Finally, type Endcli to close down the Shell. Your copy is complete.
DEATH MASK GUIDE IBBl Equip Boost your Shoot the Pick up yourself flagging reactors ammo to with a energy and claim increase large gun. With this. The spoils, firepower.
Dr-nth Mask has only recently been superseded by the might of Super Skidmarks as our favourite office game of the year, such was its hold.
It isn’t as sophisticated as many of the Doom clones but with the volume turned up. And in head-to-head mode, it’s a real blast. And we've got an exclusive. Specially-wrritten-for-Af level which, although specifically for two players, can happilv be tackled on your lonesome, although eventually you'll eliminate the sitting duck that is the other player, simply to finish ihe level.
So, what to do? If you're approaching the fearsome task with a chum, the idea is to scoot along the corridors searching out power-ups.
Blasting aliens and keeping an eve out for your opponent, for it is he she you must eventually annihilate in an orgy of violence.
Powerful weapons are liberally scattered in green boxes while medical pick-ups soothe. The blue and red bars in the centre of the screen show your very lifeblood and if you've been plastered early, keep on the move because pick-ups often regenerate giving you a fighting chance. There arc- two types of turn - quick, and not-as-quick. Quick, as you would imagine is best.
Press Shift to bring up the map. The blue and red blocks are you and your opponent, the heige blocks, the alien fiends, and the smaller, dark blocks, reactors which require elimination. © Once more we have scoured the Amiga software world to bring you the finest Coverdisks possible. And even by our high standards, this month's three offerings are a bit special... Death Mask 1 CONTROL OPTIONS F1 left quick turn off: F2 right quick turn off; F3 left quick turn on; F4 right quick turn on; FS sound off; F6 sound on.
The Shift keys either side access the map for both players accordingly. When you want rid of the map, simply press your Fire button.
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: Amigs Format (insert the name of the disk) Disk, DisCopy Labs Ltd. PO Box 21, Daventry, NN11 5RT.
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.
Bars&Pipes overleaf -» Bars&Pipes Bars&Pipes Professional is more than just a sequencer, but before you start exploring its hidden depths you need to learn the basics. Maff Evans introduces you to one of Amiga Format's best-ever creative Coverdisks.
- K6 Bffl k ¦J ii il s M 0 © The Amiga's multitasking
capabilities make it the ideal multimedia machine and
Bars&Pipes Professional is the ultimate music package to link
your sounds to a full media presentation.
Bars&Pipes Professional differs from your usual music sequencer. Other programs enable you to record, edit and play back music sequences albeit in a llexible way. But Bars&Pipes takes a few novel twists on the sequencing theme making it a powerful and llexible package.
For a start you can directly link to other programs via Allexx, running graphics, animation, text and other presentation systems cued by your music. Bars&Pipes is so powerful a multimedia music system, it can even trigger a Video Toaster.
Big, important stuff, not cheap anti tacky.
The other particularly interesting feature of Bars&Pipes is the pipeline system. By simply plonking tools on the pipeline, you can merge sequences, split them on to other channels, transpose notes and produce all manner of special effects either as you record or when a track is played - or even both. If there isn't a tool that does the job. Bars&Pipes enables you to create your own from scratch.
Because Bars&Pipes is such a big and powerful program, there are far too many features to talk about here and there's no way we can go into any great depth. So on these pages we'll just take you through the basic controls and operating methods to enable you to get started.
Toolbox: load, save and edit pipeline tools.
Track: the main sequencer page.
Song Construction: move entire bars and organise a song structure here.
Mix Maestro: a graphical mixer with mute solo, pan and level controls. This data can be recorded on a track for real-time mix control in a sequence.
Metronome: holds the settings for the metronome.
Accessories: add accessories such as Arexx.
Transport: opens the transport controls window, including marker buttons, tempo change and SMPTE clock.
Tempo Palette: store four tempi for instant access.
Set Flags: adjust marker positions by typing them in.
Tempo Map: opens a window for adding timing changes with straight cuts, slopes or curves.
Time Line Scoring: control several songs' playback on a timecode strip.
Clipboard: store temporary cuts and copies for moving around a session.
THE WINDOW ICONS These access the individual Edit windows of the program. You can drag them around and arrange them however you want or double-click to open a window. Once a window is open, its icon vanishes until you close the window.
Control Strip These buttons hold the track control functions. These are (from left to right): Solo: click to cycle through solo, mute and normal modes.
ToolPad: holds up to 16 tool icons for easy access.
Group Selectors: hold up to eight group configurations.
Group Button: for defining groups.
Cursors: move a track in the list.
The Pipeline A graphical representation of a sequence track, which breaks down into eight sections:
• Track name: double-click to enter a name.
• Input Arrow: sets which tracks will receive input data.
• Input Pipeline: the tools to be used on input. To record MIDI,
you need to add a MIDI tool here.
• Play Merge Record: sets the mode of a track.
• Sequence Area: displays the sequence data. Doubleclick to
open the Edit window.
• The Faucet: blue means that notes you play on a synth are heard
as you record, red is muted, yellow is playback only.
• Output Pipeline: works as the input pipeline.
• Output: shows the MIDI channel the track will play on.
Click here and drag to select a channel.
Sizing And Dragging Using the double arrows, you can alter the sixe of each column. The sliders enable you to scroll sideways across columns so that you can view everything that is in the column.
Professional By loading the AMIGAphone tool and placing it on the end of the output pipe (instead of the MIDI tool), you can play Amiga samples (which are also found on the disk). To choose a sample, tune it and alter other settings, double-click on the AMIGAphone tool when it’s in the pipeline to call up this window. If you've used Amiga samples before you should be able to navigate your way around it easily enough.
THE TRANSPORT WINDOW This is where playback, recording and location options are found.
EDIT WINDOW This window is used for editing notes and other sequence data on a particular track.
Control Panel These are the edit controls for the page. Many of these functions are found on other main windows and work in the same way as here.
From left to right they are: Hand: grab and drag notes around.
Duplicator: use this tool to create a copy of the selected notes and then drag them to a new position.
» Eraser: deletes notes.
ToolPad: process selected notes with the chosen tool.
• Bounding Box: used in conjunction with the Hand, Duplicator,
Erase and ToolPad controls, this enables you to select many
notes by dragging a box around them.
• Step: enters step-time mode for playing notes directly on to
the grid one at a time.
• Default Note: set (from left to right) the duration,
articulation (including triplets) and strength of notes entered
with the mouse.
• Play: plays back the notes contained in the current window.
• Sizing: make note display bigger or smaller with these two.
• SMPTE: changes from beats, bars and ticks to hours, minutes,
seconds and frames.
1992 The Blue Ribbon SoundHorks, Ltd. H Bars&Pipes Professional 1,0e S 1991 ¦BB15531 Jm oPho Flauto WHERE TO FIND YOUR SAMPLES Don’t forget - the original AF71 Coverdisk contains some useful samples in the Instruments drawer for use with the AMIGAphone tool.
Main Area This has three areas. At the top (in Hybrid mode) is a musical stave which can be extended in full notation mode. Below that is a piano roll grid, which can take up the whole note edit area and be set at a custom size. At the bottom is the controller strip, which displays things such as velocity, aftertouch and pitch bend.
CALL Oi91-584 0682 (MOH-mi 2PIH-6.30PM) Your Coverdisk should be working fine, but if not, these hints, tips and corrections may sort out the problem for you quickly and easily.
MUSIC-X (AF58) A600 owners, and anyone else 1 with only Chip RAM, should follow the instructions for A1200 owners, otherwise they will find they have little room for samples. Also, many people seem to be getting a message regarding missing fonts. The fonts are on the disk, OK! If you boot up from the Music-X program disk, like it says to do in the instructions, there is no problem. 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).
ZEEWOLF (AF66) Curious one this. Despite rigorous testing, some of you will have received Zeewolf Coverdisks that won't work on your Amiga. This is nobody's fault in particular but a peculiar incompatibility quirk - there is a problem with Zeewolf with certain makes of internal disk drives.
Both game producers Binary Asylum and Amiga Formal were unaware of this incompatibility, but Binary Asylum have now sorted it out, and new versions of the game are now available that work with all internal disk drives.
To get a new copy of Zeewolf, return your faulty disk and an SAE to Amiga Format, Zeewolf Disk, DisCopy Labs Ltd, PO Box 21, Daventry, Northants NN11 5RT.
PageSetter 2 works with CompuGraphic fonts, but it needs an .ate file. If your font doesn't have one, PageSetter 2 won't recognise it.
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 absolutely nothing wrong with this Coverdisk. But some of you seem to have been having problems because 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 are booting up from Workbench, this is the LIBS: drawer on that disk.
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 ProVector program disk in the drive and type: copy dfO:libs arp.library Libs: THE LION KING AGA (AF67) A number ol people have returned their Lion King disks to DisCopy labs and asked for a replacement, even though there is nothing wrong with the Coverdisk. -As clearly stated on the disk label and in the instructions The Lion King is an AGA-only game, so it only works on an A1200.
There is no way that The Lion King will work on an A500 or an A600.
LIBS, FONTS AND ALL THAT There arc lots of files and commands associated with the normal operation of software. You may not see them until you try to install software: LIBRARIES - These are compact routines which are compiled as a separate library. They contain commonly-used routines so programmers can write new utilities without having to re-code all the basic routines all the 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.
ASSIGN - The assign command is used to make pathname shortcuts. It does this by creating a logical or virtual device - one that doesn’t exist, but points to a pathname that does. The usage is: Assign device name path name 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:
• 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. Lise the Copy command or drag the files,
having first switched on Show All Files mode.
• To install software to hard disk, you may need an assign or
two. The assigns should be of the original disk name and point
to the new name. © Attackers: Day 1: Endurance; Gym Circuit;

These aren't the best training routines but it’s a start. Try improvising on these yourself and see how the team performs. Strength and fitness routines tend to require a couple of weeks before you see the results, but don't overdo it on these exercises.
Our thanks to David Fowler from Coleshill who has discovered a way of getting the King Pin demo from AF70 to work on an A500 Plus running Workbench 2.
According to David you should load Workbench and insert the Coverdisk. Then select Show All Files and double-click on the Tool file King Pin. When the argument requester comes up, just click OK and the demo will run perfectly.

FORMATFORUM Defender Of The Crown? Sensible Soccer? The Lattice C Compiler? Just what has been the most important Amiga software release?
Welcome, friends, to the last page of the mag which is now known as Amiga Formal Forum. Once again, we have invited some of the industry's movers and shakers to share their thoughts with us and. Never ones to miss a publicity opportunity, they have responded.
I would agree with that - at the time I was in retail, living to move AlOOOs. And a common plov to get people to part with their 1.2(H) notes was to lure them into the shop with The Juggler and then hit them with Defender Of The Crown.
The Amiga is more than just a games platform. Steve l-ougluan, SI) rendering artist, thinks only of: "Lightwave. If there was a machine left to run it on."
John Bittner. President ofZuma Group Inc. cites: “The Lattice C Compiler.
Without it. Development would have been severely hampered." Which is a fair point.
Sometimes we forget that someone has to write these jaw-droppinglv good titles, and that they need something to write it in.
Nominate Defender Of The Crown .the game that knocked our socks off back in 1986 when owning an Amiga was still a dream for most people.
Now we d like to hear your views; do you agree with our panel? What do you think was (is) the most important Amiga software release ever? And why? You can nominate a game, creative application or utility. The best answers will be printed in a future edition of Amiga Format Forum, and will win their authors a spankingly trendy .t 'sweatshirt. Please send your answers to Format Forum, Amiga Format, 30 Monmouth Street. Bath, Avon BA I 2BW. ® How to contact us This month's question is: what has been the most important Amiga software release ever? And why?
Vested interests first. Sarah Tanser, marketing and PR mxecutive of Warner Interactive Entertainment (incorporating Accolade and Renegade) (phewl) suggests: "Sensible .Soccer- have you ever met anyone who hasn't played it?" Well, yes I have actually, bin point taken.
Another marketing manager with a football title in mind is Daryl Still of (boo!
Hiss!) Atari, who gamely offers the title which many people feel ‘inspired’ the all-conquering Sensi.
"Kirk Off because it was the first Amiga game where the developer went out of his way to use the Amiga enhancements."
.Alt yes. Who can forget the late Eighties, when so mans publishers just ported ST releases across to the Amiga and slapped an extra fiver on to the price?
Some of us have memories which reach even further back, such as Richard Eddy of Codemasters: "It has to be something from the early days, the piece of software that made people go 'Coooerr!
Get that!'.
“I have reasonably distinct recollections of a Commodore Show around 1986. There was this huge grey thing called an 'Ameeger' running Defender Of The Crown. The colours! The movement! The breasts on the woman on the title screen! Berlimey! It had everyone talking. Sadly, the title also spawned the hideous phrase Interactive Movie.
“And then, of course. The JuggJer&emo showing off the HAM mode. All very thrilling stuff. Even though there has been a wealth of superb games, applications and utilities since, it was those bits of software that got the Amiga going."
Sensible Soccer.
Tobv Simpson, a name familiar to Amiga Shofrfn-r readers, also goes for a version of the (. Development system: "SAS C Com iiler along with. SnoopDOS and Pinball Fantasies, because it is just the most superbly brilliant game I never produced."
Ah yes. We keep returning to games.
Nick Walkland. Of Empire Interactive, remembers: “Inaming*, the classic original, because it was so TV-kickinglv addictive and frustrating."
"Lemmings - the classic original."
Mai Thomas, general secretary of the National Association of Specialist Computer Retailers (NASCR), nominates Premier Manager 2 for the simple reason that his offspring spends hours buying and selling players and: "if nothing else it’s kept my son from under my feet." 11mm, parental neglect anyone?
Finally, Ian Saunter. Development Director at Millennium Interactive, gives another vote to Defender Of The Crown "Defender Of The Crown. It had everybody talking.
Because: "It was just the most graphically stunning, dripping-with-gorgeous-touches game of its time.
So. There it is: I'm surprised nobody mentioned Deluxe Paint, but I too would SUBSCRIPTIONS: M t* prini yin ¦ n*n*i.§ rmtrmi ¦mo* n urn ». N.irmmi mil FAULTY COVERDISKS: tfyMrdtok bMty.
