I sincerely hope that the first meaning of the above line is completely out of date, irrelevant, moot, or whatever by the time vou read this. What 1 mean, of course, is that before this issue hits the newsstand, there will have been an official announcement stating who the new owners of the Amiga are. That's certainly what I had hoped would be the subject of this column, but here it is press time again, and the outcome is still up in the air. At least we re at what has to be the final stage in this long, painful process of burying Commodore. And, at least we know that there are two groups out there who have put up their deposits and put in their sealed bids. It would have been a great New Year’s present if the liquidators had made their decision by January 1 so we could have gotten 1995 oil on the right foot. (I swear, if I ever hear the word “liquidators” again after all this is over, someone’s going to be missing a lew teeth!) Please Listen Up, New Owners, Whomever You May Be Speaking of New Year’s, even though the 1st lias come and gone, how about some New Year's resolutions for the v» new owners of the Amiga whomever they happen to be. And that’s where you come in, Dear Reader. I’d like to personally present Mr. Amor or Mr. Pleas- ance with a list of things that AmigaWorld readers think the new owners should do regarding the Amiga once they take over. Whether it's new development, ramping up production of existing products, marketing advice, service concerns, or whatever let's let them know. Send in vour recommendations to “First Impressions” (c o AmigaWorld, 80 Elm St., Peterborough, NH 03458). If you've got more than one, line, but try to keep them reasonably brief so we can assemble a manageable package. I’ll also publish a representative sample of them, say, two issues from now so everyone can get an idea of how other Amiga users are thinking. From what I've learned, both groups have expressed a sincere desire to listen to what the users have to say (something the former ownership in its contemptible arrogance never seemed even remotely interested in). So, let's give them plenty of food for thought to help them make a good fresh start!

OVERSCAN News, New Products and More Video Toaster Expo '94 For a few days in December, North Hollywood became ’'the center of the Toaster and LightWave 3D universe" when Avid Media Group sponsored its first Video 'Toaster Expo at the Universal City Hilton & Towers Hotel. More than 3000 show attendees were treated to a full schedule of intense Toaster seminars and classes, more than a dozen special product demonstrations, and sales from about fifty vendor booths. Keynote speaker was Tim Jettison, president of NewTek. Seminar instructors included LightWave 3D programmers Allen Hastings and Stu Ferguson; frequent Video Toaster User conributors Lee Stranahan, An tie Cachelin. James Hebert, Jason Linhart, and Brad Feebler: and such industry’ wizards as Dale Myers, Grant Boucher, John Gross, Tony Stullerheim, and Glen Miller, to name just a Few. Commenting on the show’s success. Jim Plant, Avid Media Group CEO, said. " The Expo exceeded all of our expectations; exhibit space totally sold out and most manufacturers . . . Sold out [product] too." NewTek showed off the Video Flyer and LightWave 4.0 (now $ 993), which now runs on SGI machines and Pcs, as well as Amigas. Nova Design demoed ImageFX 2.0. a major upgrade of its popular 24-bit image-processing and painting program. Some of its new features include more than a dozen new loaders and savers, about two dozen more special effects, a thumbnail preview option, and support for the Epson 1200c scanner. Self-proclaimed “Toaster Head," actor Dick Van Dyke, was even seen with a copy tucked under his arm. Innovision Technology's 36-bit Alpha Paint requires a Toaster and is intended as an alternative loToasterPaint. 'Hie company's booth was always packed as onlookers twisted their necks to get a look at the elaborate new package. Qiiestar Productions ran an impressing videotape presentation of animations created with its World Construction Set (see review, Dec. ’94) to appreciative crowds. Silent Paw Productions showed an early lucite-cased prototype of its laptop Amiga kit, the Personal Amiga Workstation. Which lets von take vour Toast- I i er on location. Area 52 was busv selling interYisual z c* Software’s Plantation, a new distributed- reitdcring package for LightWave 3D, along with iis line of hard drives and other goodies. Dealers in attendance included B&rH Photo-Video and Anti-Gravity Workshop, whose booth was decorated with inflatable "Rendersaurus” dinos. Business was brisk at the Fred Fish Amiga Library Services booth, where its new Light-ROM CD, a collection of LighWave objects, was a hot-seller. Aspen Systems displayed its 273 Mhz DEC Alpha Workstation, while Blevins Enterprises gave demos of the Ver- tiSketch 3D digitizer. Other participants included: Dimension Technologies (Composite Studio), Dynamic Realities (Impact!), Focus GbR (Graphic Recall), Interworks (T-Net and Enlan-DFS), MegageM (Fractal Pro), Noahji’s (VLab Motion System), Prime Image, Radiosity (Wavemaker 2). RGB Computers & Video (AmiLink), SutiRize Industries (Studio 16), and Viewpoint Datalabs. II you missed the show, a two-hour video of Expo highlights is available (call Avid Media Group at 800 322-2843) and there’s always next year! Harv Laser Commodore Watch With sealed bids and cash deposits in from two groups, the liquidators in the Commodore case were expected to make a final decision as this issue was going to press. Alex Amor of Creative Equipment International confirmed that CEI had made a formal offer for the rights to the Amiga on December 15. David Pleasance of the former Commodore UK management team followed up on December 22 with his group's official bid. No other groups were expected to participate in the final bidding process. While anticipation ran high that the court-appointed liquidators would make an announcement in early January, no decision had been reached as of press time. Both groups involved in the bidding were very confident of their chances, and each felt that the onus was now squarely on the liquidators to render a final and speedy decision in the case. DS AW Shucks! While we did credit Daniel Wolf, the creator of the fractal images used on the Feb. ’95 cover and in the cover feature (p. 12), we neglected to mention that they were created using MegageM’s Fractal Pro software or taken from MegageM's Fractal Pro Image Library, Vol. 1, CD-ROM. Thanks again, Dan, for your assistance. To locate the vendors of products mentioned, see the ''Manufacturers' Distributors' Addresses" list on p. 62. By Denny Atkin In rhe Amiga’s early clays, the computer's multitasking made it a much heller platform for running utilities and operating-system enhancements than the DOS-based PC Is of the day. Pop-up utililies lor programming function keys, blanking the n mouse, or dialing the phone were really just additional programs rather than interrupt-driven TSRs, so everything coexisted nicely except when ii came to the keyboard* that is. Because the operating system didn't provide a method for a utility' to check a keypress while you were running a word processor, programmers had to make the programs check keypresses before they reached the operating system. Many utilities used identical key- presses to activate functions, forcing you to choose to run one or the other. Others would mess up the input food chain, eating keypresses before they could reach other utilities. Sometimes things were smooth, hut some utility combinations were prescriptions for disaster. Commodities to the Rescue AmigaDOS 2.04 introduced u a new system, called Commodities, to prevent such conflicts. In earlier versions of the OS, even’ utility that needed to watch the keyboard had to wedge in front of the input.device. Under
2. 04 and later, the Commodities system does all the keyboard watching, sending o' n trigger messages to the appropriate commodity (utility) when particular keys are pressed. Now you have only one extra program the main Commodities driver watching the keyboard. Modity’s window, alter the CX_POPKF.Y Tool'Type; for example, you might set a screen saver to CXPOP- KEY=Ii>hilt Lalt S. Finally, the CX PRIOR- 11Y T ool Type determines who gets first shot at a keypress. Suppose one commodity performs ail operat ion when you press El, hut you want to make sure the Fkev 4 commodity (which lets you redefine function keys) gets the El keypress instead. In such a case, set Fkey’s ToolType to CX PRIOR- ITY=5. ( I he default is 0.) Commodity Exchange A commodity called Exchange is used to control the oilier commodities in your system. V d The default keypress to bring up Exchange (if it’s running) is Ctrl-Alt-Help. A list of all the commodities in your system appears in a list box in the Exchange window . Select any commodity, and vou can 4 J show or hide its control interlace (a few commodities, such as NoCapsl.ock, don't have an interface), make the commodity temporarily inactive, or remove it entirely. (You can remove some commodities that don’t have interlaces, such as AutoPoint, by simply double-clicking their icons a second time.) A number of useful commodities are included with the system. AutoPoint auto- maticallv activates the w indow under the mouse pointer (pretty annoying if you ask me). Blanker is a simple screen blanker; in some versions of AmigaDOS it simply makes the screen go blank (which is all a screen blanker nerds to do), but more recent revisions toss in Another advantage to the Commodities scheme is that it allows von to define your 4 4 own keypresses for pop-up utilities. If a utility is set to blank the screen when you press Shifi-Fl, but your word processor uses that keypress to start a spell-check, you can easily change the commodity’s trigger-keypress. I he best way to make Quick Tip To supplement the commodities included on your Workbench disk, you’ll find dozens of public-domain and shareware commodities on the online networks. These range from do-all commodities such as YAK to handy, single- purpose programs such as Steve Tibbett’s CacheX disk cache. Commodities active in your system is to drag them into the WBStartup drawer on your hoot disk. (If you don’t want a commodity to load every time you start the system, you can also start it manually from the Workbench.) Each commodity's icon has a set of fool Types that control how it interacts with the rest of the system. If you j d want to load a commodity, hut you don't want its window to open, change the CX_POPUP=YES ToolType to NO. To change the kcv- O press used to open a comthe glitz and animate a squiggly line as well. Change the SECON DS=60 ’ fool’ Type if you want the screen blanker to kick in sooner or later than the default. If you decide you want a true blanker instead of the animated version, add a ToolType that savs ANIMA- T10 = 0. Click To Front brings a window to the front when you hold clown the left Alt key (you can change this using Tool l ypes) and double-click on the window. The CrossDOS commodity (in
2. 1 and later) lets you set the text-translation options when reading and writing MS-DOS disks. NoCapsl.ock disables the Caps Lock key, which is useful if vou have a habit of 4 accidentally hitting it. One of my favorites is Mouse- Blanker, which makes the mouse pointer disappear when you start typing. Perhaps the most powerful commodity included with the operating system is fKey. You can use it to 4 assign text strings to function keys or key sequences. But the utility does much more: It enables you to assign key sequences to cycle through windows or screens, enlarge or shrink windows, toggle a window's size, and even run programs or Arexx scripts. With careful programming of Fkey, you can make most of your Amiga’s functions available with a simple keypress. ¦ Denny Atkin is author of the hook Denny Atkin’s Best Amiga l ips and Secrets.

World of Amiga LONDON While expectations were high at the much anticipated World of Amiga show, attendees who waited for word on the rumored buy-out of the remains of Com* modore by the UK group, lead by David Pleasance, were disappointed the multi* tiered bidding process continues. The former management team was on hand, however, to discuss its marketing plans with dealers and distributors should it acquire the remains. Of particular concern to the UK group was the limited supply of certain Amiga internal components, which could result in significant production delays. From the Floor The good news is there's no severe shortage of fresh products from Amiga developers, if show participation is any indication. CyberVision premiered two impressive addons for the A4000: CyberVision 64 and Cy- berStorm. CyberVision 64 is a 64-bit graphics card that offers solid performance at any resolution. Additionally, upgrade software will soon be available for owners of non-AGA Amigas to take advantage of the card. Cy- berStorm, a 50Mhz '060 accelerator board, claims to increase rendering speed threefold! (An 80Mhz version is in the works.) Afmathera Systems unfolded Photogen- ics (about $ 120), a 24-bit graphics manipulation package, and Video Creator, a videoeffects CD-ROM with MPEG support. Almathera also presented a collection of fonts, 3-D objects, and textures on CD-ROM. Ramiga International wowed the crowds with Silicon Studio Workstation, an Amiga 4000-based full-featured digital audio sys- tern. It offers 24-track 44.1 Khz mixing with MIDI support. Optonica showcased its new directory and file manager, Info-Nexus, now with support for Envoy networks; it also displayed a database program, Data-Nexus. Show highlights from games developers included: Virgin Interactive's Lion King and Cannon Fodder 2; Psygnosis' X-IT, a scrolling puzzle game, and Fink, a platform game for CD-32; and for die-hard soccer fans only, Gremlin Interactive's Premier Manager 3 (reviewed in this month's Game Preserve) and Anco's Kick Off 3 (also reviewed). Although show attendance was the lowest it's been in years, WOA was a success, nonetheless, if only as proof of the continued interest in the Amiga by developers. Stuart Menges Update Scan Until version 3.1 is released (no date set at press time), Soft-Logik is ottering four patch files for PageSireani
3. 0. You can download these files for free via Soft-Logik’s BBS (314 256-
8971) : the files have additionally been uploaded to CompuServe and Genie. T he latest update is also available on disk for §10 (shipping and handling fee), or $ 30 if you participate in an update plan that puts von on Soft-Logik’s mailing list to receive all the liles automatically as they become available. Amiga Envoy 2.0 ($ 59.95; §25, upgrade; Intanible A$ se$ t$ Manufacturing) now supports AmigaDOS 2.04 packet types and removable media, and offers AmigaGuide documentation, among other improvements. It requires Workbench 2.04 or later, 512K of RAM, and SANA-11 compatible networking hardware (1MB of RAM and a hard drive are recommended). Amiga Toaster Reference Manual ($ 50, Area52) is a hypertext help guide that installs onto your hard drive. The new version features answers to the most frequently asked questions about Workbench, AmigaDOS 3.1, LightWave, and various applications software. Other highlights include an Amiga dictionary, refraction indexes, and hardware specs lor all Amigas. The manual requires Workbench 2.04 or later, a 3MB hard drive, and 1 MB of RAM. Upgrades are ottered on a weekly basis via Area52 s 24-hour BBS, TVPaint 3.0 (Activa International), a 24-bit paint program, is now available for Window's as well as Amiga; it already supports all major file formats including TIFF, SGI, GIF, and JPEG. TVPainfs distinctive* multi-layering effect allows you to work on three images simultaneously, as well as open a spare screen to “test drive” one of the program’s special effects or image-processing functions. It features an intuitive icon and menu-driven interface, as well as keyboard shortcuts and powerful undo and redo features. To take advantage of TVPaint’s wide array of drawing tools, a pressure- sensitive drawing tablet or pen is strongly recommended. MediaEditor 4.0 (upgrade, $ 90, Interactive MicroSystcms) is an edit decision list manager for video. You Tog in” scenes from raw footage, which you can then preview and record under computer control. MediaEditor also plays and records graphics and animations from edit list script commands. It can control more than fifteen devices, including three video player decks, a switcher, a special-effects generator, DAT and audio cassette decks, compact disc players, and a recorder. It performs A B roll editing with switcher control and time-code tape positioning. Once you’ve edited your raw video with MediaEditor, you can use Interactive Microsystems’ MediaPhile 3.0S Video Deck Controller for "cuts” editing or A B roll editing. MediaPhile controls player decks and camcorders equipped with Sony GTL-L or LANCS remote ports (a Panasonic CTL-M port adapter is in the works). The MP 3.0S kit is comprised of the LANGS controller, a recorder S-port cable, player LANCS port interface cable, player time-code audio cable, and the MediaPhile Infrared Controller. Aminet Alternative Ashamed to say that you don't own a modem? Not to worry with the BCI-NET series of Cds from Better Concepts, you can access some of the more popular programs on Aminet, the Internet's designated Amiga area. What's more, you can impress your Internet-savvy friends as you search or launch files via the CD's smooth interface. The series will be released on a quarterly basis (December '94 is currently available). Can You See It? With Stereo GAD (S54, JCA Europe), you’ll get the picture.

Editing the Text Everyone who uses an Amiga eventually needs a text editor. In irs simplest form, a text editor lets von compose lines of programming code and write scripts for the command line. As die name implies, you can also use text editors to write letters home to Mom, but due to their lack of conveniences, they generally don’t make particularly useful word processors. Most include a number of options for properly formatting and saving code with no extraneous characters. As with most utilities, you can Unci a collection of freelv distributable i text editors online. If you want to test-drive the latest version of Turbo- Text 2.0 (see "Reviews” in this issue), check out the TurboText 2.0 demo floating around various nets. Featuring many performance enhancements, ihe demo reveals what’s new. A short list of these includes on-line documentation, ASF file and screen-mode requesters, and a new Arexx macro cache. Also, you can now open each TurboText. Window on separate public screens, and lines are no longer limited to ‘12,768 diameters. The demo also shows how t he new TurboText automatically detects binaiy hies when loading a new clocu- o mem and how it adjusts irs Preferences options accordingly. A number of enhancements also take advantage ol AmigaDOS 3.1. Robert Brandner's shareware Poly Ed is a fast and powerful AmigaDOS 2.x 3.x text editor that works in any screen mode. The amount of RAM in your system j J determines both the maximum number of projects and number of windows per project. There’s onlinc-help, support for macros, and multiple undo and redo options. The online version you’ll find (currently only on CompuServe) is a sample that quits operating after Leu minutes unless you have paid the shareware fee. John Harper’s Jade v3,2 is another freely distributable text editor designed exclu- u sivelv lor programmers. Oilcring a Lisp-style extension language you can tailor to your own requirements. Jade supports both the Amiga and X-Windows under a graphical windowing system. No discussion of freelv distributable text editors would be complete without mention of David Gav’s text j editor, Emacs for the Amiga. This Swiss programmer has obviously spent years creating an enormous archive containing numerous examples. By the author’s own admission, Emacs is a rather cryptic editor that uses sequences of keypresses and mouse dicks instead of conventional menus. Above and beyond its full Arexx interface, sophisticated features for programmers, and online support, its quick execution speeds make this text editor worth a dose examination. Golden Text Saving the best for last leads us to GoldEd, a shareware text editor by Dietmar Filer. An event-based text editor, GoldEd waits for a pressed key or other input, then calls a dispatcher to perform the appropriate action. GoldEd doesn't use an internal macro language: Its internal functions are function calls. It fully relies on Arexx for conditional statements. While it works on unaccel- erated systems, for optimum performance the author recommends AmigaD()S 3,x, an accelerator for increased speed, and 2MB or more of RAM. It inav J work satisfactorily under older versions of the OS, but some of GoIdEd's advanced features require 2.1, and many other features could well use 3.x because of the increased performance that operating system gives.

REV E CanDo 3.0 Powerhouse multimedia authoring software. INOVAtronics, $ 399 All Ami gas. Accelerator compatible. Minimum system: 2MB RAM, 8MB hard-disk space. Recommended system: Same as minimum.
2. X 3.x compatible. Hard-drive installable. Not copy protected. CanDo is one of those products that has knocked my socks off with each new revision. Although the basic interface lias remained fairly constant through the years, INOVAtronics’ newest incantation of its best-selling authoring system bears little resemblance to the
o o bare-bones CanDo 1.0 that appeared in 1989. One glance at the 3-ring, 600-page manual is enough to tell you that CanDo is now a fully mature programming language, able to stand its ground against any other programming environment. Don't let that scare you off, though: CanDo gives as little or as much as you ask of it, and it’s as user-friendly as they come. Assisting the new user is a separate manual that features half a dozen tutorials, taking you from a very simple deck through a gruelingly complex program. The tutorials are, however, too light on topics that intermediate users really need help with, such as subdecks, database management, and creating AmigaGuide help files. What Can It Do? In case you don’t know what all the fuss is about, CanDo is a multimedia authoring system for creating programs with a minimum of traditional programming skill. In essence, you use CanDo*s tools to add objects like buttons, graphics and requesters to the screen, and then to create Basic-like scripts that tell these gadgets what to do. Can Do’s metaphor is a deck of cards, in which each card is a screen that holds information and is interlinked to other cards. Each card can have buttons, text fields and document boxes, pictures, animbmshes, sounds, timers, and more. Moreover, CanDo decks have access to the serial port, joystick, and Arexx. CanDo provides you with virtually complete con- To locate the vendors of the products reviewed, see the "Manufacturers' Distributors' Addresses" list on p. 62. Trol over the Amiga. You can call on a wide variety of sophisticated wipes to display full-screen pictures and brushes. You can use the mouse to choreograph animbrush motion around the screen and then trigger scripts to occur on specific frames. And Can Do’s Ilexible database object allows you to manipulate data almost automatically for many sorts of tasks. Button Factory One of the most repetitive tasks in CanDo is the application of buttons and gadgets to the screen, but the program now provides so many tools to simplify tlais task that you’re inclined to whistle while you work. In design mode, a single click on a button illuminates a draggable border that can be used to visually resize or move the window. Tools like SuperDuper and SuperMover automate the task of duplicating and moving groups of buttons with precision, and a new AlignObject tool precisely arranges multiple buttons automatically. Gone are the days when it look all afternoon to give a gadget- laden interface a neat, professional look. Though the main panel is still basically a strip of tools at the bottom of the display, CanDo now sports an entirely new look. The main panel scrolls over 28 tools, and you may rearrange them to suit your taste. Unfortunately, the script editor still cannot highlight text with the mouse; instead, you mark the start and end of text blocks the way mainframe text editors of old used to do. On the other hand, there are many improvements here. In the past, it was often a major hassle to locate the right syntax in Can Do’s ever growing language. Now, thanks to the Lexicon Assistant, you can simply select the proper command template from a scrolling list, and then modify it to suit your purposes. A similar Lexicon Assistant is provided for Arexx. You can pass Arexx messages between any external program and a CanDo deck, and with the new lexicon tool, you can quickly reference that other program’s Arexx commands. Unfortunately, you’ll have to create each glossary yourself, for CanDo As CanDo has grown, it has become more expansive and less cozy. While 1 learned the limits and capabilities of CanDo 1.0 inside of a week, I still haven’t tapped this new version’s outer boundaries, nor will I ever need to. Thankfully, it remains a system that you can learn a bit at a time, mastering techniques as needed. And while subdecks the ability to open multiple windows simultaneously is still an enigma for all but experienced users, I can’t think of an easier or more powerful program for writing custom applications on the Amiga.

2. 1 or later. Recommended system: 8MB RAM, hard drive, accelerator. Time-saving animation utilities for LightWave. No 3-D animation package in existence has every capability any user could possibly want, and CanDo now offers a wide variety of wipes and other effects to display full-screen pictures and brushes. New tools in CanDo 3.0 make it much easier to create and manipulate screen buttons and other gadgets. Comes with lexicon files for only two other INOYAtronics programs. Thanks to the program's support for reusable code, you may not have to spend much time in the script editor. Can Do’s Librarian tool lets you organize and save scripts for use in different decks. Lastly, fin overjoyed that you can now enter text directly on the screen as you would in any paint program or word processor. If the text later gets in the way of a rearranged button, just drag it with the mouse via the handle. Summing Up The tool strip on the redesigned CanDo 3.0 main panel shows some of the program’s 28 LightWave is no exception. Motion Master is a new tools, collection of eight modules (four per volume) to augment LightWave animation. Each module performs a specialized lask that would be quite difficult to implement manually. With the exception of TimeMa- chine, all the modules open up in a small window on the Workbench screen. And most of them are fairly simple to operate, although they may not make much sense until you’ve read the manual. Flocking and Recording Starting with Volume I, PathFlock, as the name implies, creates scenes of flocking objects that follow a target object along a specified path. There are numerous controls, including settings for object avoidance and for how chaotic you want the generated motions to be. In addition, there’s an animated displacement map you can apply to each object in the flock, making it easy to have the birds in a flock flap their wings. Moreover, you can select a randomizer that makes each flock member’s displacement motion different from that of the rest. The MouscRecorder module captures the V position of the mouse with respect to time and uses the data to generate either an envelope or one channel ? Of a motion file. It captures the data at a rate of 30 samples per second for as long as you hold down the left mouse button within the capture window. A counter displays the total elapsed time, and a list with a scroll bar allows you to view the numerically captured data. When you are finished recording mouse motions, clicking on Save Data brings up an options window. From here you specify whether to create an envelope or motion, which motion channel to apply the data to, and what

Mouse Recorder is perfect for quickly creating pseudorandom events for jittered object motion or flickering light intensity. Sound and Time ExtractAudio is similar to MouseRe- corder in that it creates an envelope or motion file with the same options. However, the data driving the envelope comes from a standard 8svx IFF audio sample. Hie sound is subsampled down Affordable Non-Linear Editor to 30Hz, using the average amplitude to set the value in the envelope motion. The duration of the sample determines the duration of the envelope. By digitizing the soundtrack to your animation, you can create lights that strobe to the music or make the needle of a sound meter bounce to the audio level. You can even make it act as a poor man's lip sync by using it to drive the morph envelope of a character’s mouth, TimeMachiue, the most complex tool in Volume I, eases the task of creating inultitarget morph animations. The interlace is a timeline graph. You load morph targets along the left-side y-axis and place points along the timeline to specify the degree of morph from one target to the next. Envelope settings on the graph can range from 0 to 75% in 25% increments. The graph visual lends intuit ivcness to what can be a daunting task. Below the graph is a “dialog box," where you may enter a time-dependent enunciation of the words being used. Unfortunately, it is difficult to set up this box with the time-synced words. And even when the dialog is complete, setting effective morph targets based on it is neither automatic nor easy. While TimeMa- chine makes designing complex morphs a bit simpler, I think it needs some work to make it an effective lip-sync tool. Volume II Moving on to the second volume, the Child2World module performs one of the most requested LightWave functions: unparenting an object from its hierarchy. While this initially appears as a simple operation, the math involved is surprisingly complex. Child2World requires motion files for the hierarchy, from the top-most parent clown to the child object being unparented. From these, it generates a motion file for the child that represents patented motion without the object actually being pat ented. You may then alter this motion as you wish, but the unedited keyframes give the impression that the object is patented. The only drawback is that the software doesn’t currently parse for repeat- end behavior in the motion files. PointAt is similar to ChildSWorld, except that it allows you to make an object "point at" or target another object. Used for such things as making a character’s eyes follow a flying insect, PointAt lets you use a light or camera to target an object, just as in LightWave. VolumeCube is a procedural animation tool that creates random motion for a collection of objects within the confines of a user-defined volume. Like Path- Con tinned on p. 54.

* **•- • ¦ -J, since the demise of Commodore. But they need all the issistance thev can net. We’ve sent an AW team out to scour the countryside to find available sources of support ind information. The results of their efforts are presented here in a special “Help” feature covering four different ire as of assistance: Amiga Dealers, Online Support .Amiga Reference Books, and Amiga Users’ Groups Amiga World 13 ¦¦¦ kHPHMHPH mSKSm M l $ $ 0 hen Commodore closed its doors last year, many worried Amiga owners simply assumed that their local dealer would soon do the same. After all, how could anyone continue to be an Amiga dealer with almost no Amiga computers available to sell? As it turns out, however, these worried owners badly underestimated the amount of dedication, resourcefulness, and perseverance that Amiga dealers could muster in the face of adversity. When, at the prompting of our readers, we started looking into the question of just how many Amiga dealers were staying the course, we were both surprised and pleased by what we found. By all indications, most of the Amiga dealers who have believed in the product, understood it, and stuck by it all these years not only continue to support their loyal customers, hut continue to he successful enough to keep going for a long while to come. We talked to a number of these dealers, to see how they were getting on with life after Commodore. Most were upbeat, and what they had to say should prove to he both informative and encouraging to Amiga owners. (For addresses and phone numbers of dealers profiled here plus those of dealers recommended by other Amiga users see the sidebar "Finding Amiga Dealers,"p. 15.) The Computer Room A it rora, Colorado The Computer Room is a family business, run bv John Sobernhciin Jr. And his father, John Sr. They’ve been at it since 1981, and have been Amiga dealers since 1985, when the computer was first introduced. John cites three areas of his business that haven't changed much since Commodore’s demise. First, there are a large number of current Amiga owners who are still buying hardware upgrades and software. Despite tlie uncertainty over the future of Commodore, upgrade hardware is readily available, and during the Christmas 94 season, new software titles were still appearing at the rate of from five to ten a week. Second, like many Amiga dealers, the Computer Room has developed considerable expertise in desktop video, a field whose popularity is booming. Finally, John reports a substantial number of customers who are interested in the Amiga strictly as an entertainment system. Continued availability of CD32 machines and a growing library of CD32 software titles have given this market a boost. John also sees a trend that current Amiga owners should find particularly encouraging: “Ascertain items like 1084 monitors and Amiga 500 RAM-expansion products are getting scarcer, they are becoming more valuable on the used market. I’ve seen used 1084 monitors selling for the same price we used to charge for new ones.” MicroTech Solutions Aurora, Illinois If nothing else, our impromptu survey demonstrated the Amiga is popular in towns named Aurora. For further confirmation, you need onlv look to Aurora, Illi-
* d nois, home to MicroTech Solutions, a suburban Chicago dealership (as well as the setting of the two Wayne’s World movies). Although some retailers like to hedge their bets by carrying other computer lines, owner John Crookshank has confined his operation strictly to Commodore computers since lie began his first repair shop in 1983. Despite the current atmosphere of uncertainty, John believes that it is important for him to retain a strong identification with the Amiga. “Focus is very important in retailing,” he says. “Instead of trying to be all things to all people, you’ve got to identify what makes you different, and then do whatever it takes to serve the market that you've chosen.” John feels that the philosophy of building a longterm relationship with his customers has helped him make the best of a bad situation. Since he has always concentrated on repeat business, rather than on getting a constant stream of new customers in the door, he has a large base of users that he can continue to serve. John feels that his focus on selling solutions, rather than dazzling technology, has also paid off. Over the last five years, his typical user has changed from the casual hobbyist to the professional user who looks to the Amiga because it allows him or her to perform a specific task better than anything else on the market. These customers, lie feels, are the ones who are going to stick with the Amiga as long as ii continues to do that job better than anything else on the market. Slipped Disk Madison Heights, Michigan Slipped Disk, a suburban Detroit Amiga dealership, started out in 1983 as a computer club for Commodore-64 owners. “In those days, support was one of a computer owner's most important needs,” says owner Jeff Moscow, “and despite all of the advances made in the last ten years, support is now more important than ever.” The store added computer hardware and software sales to its business in 1985, when it picked up the Amiga, but has kept both the club facilities and the club attitude. “Amiga dealers like working with computers and people,” Moscow says. “It’s not the route you take if you are looking to get rich quick.” To maintain this friendly attitude, Slipped Disk holds annual events such as a picnic and a computer auction. These days, the sign outside the store reads, Multimedia and Computer Center. “Most people think that IBM and Apple invented multimedia two years ago,” says Moscow, “but when people come in the store, we can look them in the eye and tell them that we’ve been working with multimedia for ten years.” Not surprisingly, video and multimedia users form the core of his customer base. The store hosts a monthly 3-D special- ii i; i r i, i i; s i Finding Amiga Dealers IN' ADDII ION* I () the dealers profiled in the main article (addresses and phone numbers of whom are given below), I’ve also included some dealers recommended by other Amiga users = also see below), Bui how can von locate an Amiga dealer if von don’t know ol one in your area? I [ere are some suggestions:
1. Look at the ads for mail-order dealers in Amiga Wo rid and other magazines. Many mail-order suppliers also operate a storefront. Don't limit yourself to Amiga magazines, either. Many dealers who advertise in video magazines as "Video Toaster Specialists" are actually Amiga dealers in disguise. Likewise, those simply advertising software and hardware products sometimes do double duty as dealers, as well.
2. Ask other Amiga owners. Let them know that you are looking for support, and ask them il they’ve had good experiences dealing with anyone locally, or even not so locally. II you have a local users' group, ask the memebeis. Ifyou have a modem, try to find a bulteiin-board service that supports Amiga users. Normally, ifyou can find one local board, it will have listings of others in o the area, usually indicating what kind of computers they support.
3. Ask third-party hardware and software producers. If you're interested in a particular product, the vendor probably knows which retailers are familiar with its products. And which ones are capable of helping you should a problem arise. II you lind an Amiga dealer who is willing to help you, remember lo support that dealer when it comes time to purchase additional hardware or software. Many dealers report that with Commodore out of the picture, they’ve been called on to do more support than ever, so it's only fair that von support them in return.

Moscow, a ten-year veteran of the computer wars, finds it surprising and a hit amusing when users question if he can stay in business now that Commodore lias gone. “I tell them that the only thing more difficult than staying in business without Commodore’s help is staving in business with Commodore’s help. If I could survive that for ten years, then I can certainly survive this.” The onlv regret he lias about Commodore s passing is that he never got to be president of the company. “After all.” lie savs, “almost everybody else did.” oscow savs that he is often kidded about the store s unusual name, hut feels that the play on words works to his advantage. “I can't tell you how many people have come in looking for a chiropractor, and gone out earn ing an Amiga system.” O Cl Clackamas Computers Clackamas Oregon When Don Sorenson, an Amiga dealer in this suburb of Portland, found that he could no longer buy Amiga computers through the normal distribution channels, he turned to a less conventional source. “We used our mailing list to solicit used computers from our customers,’’ says Sorenson. Selling the same computers over and over again mav not be business as usual in the computer game, but it works for Clackamas Computers. Because of innovative concepts like Amiga recycling, the store actually had a better vear in 1994 than n * * in 1993, a claim that few computer dealers, let alone Amiga dealers, can make. Like most remaining Amiga dealers, Clackamas specializes in those areas in which the Amiga excels, namely video and multimedia. Like many, it carries the Video Toaster, RGB’s Ami Link system, and Scab's InfoChannel. To supplement sales of hardware upgrades and software, Clackamas has its own Amiga product line, which includes the B.F..S.T. accounting software package ancl the V.l.P. video encoder. Despite the long delay in resolving the status of the Amiga, Don thinks that Commodore’s demise may help the Amiga, rather than kill it. He believes that sometime soon, one of the bidders will acquire the rights and once again begin producing Amiga computers. When that happens, he plans to pick up where he left off last spring. Mr. Hardware Computers Central I slip, (Long Islandj, New York There's no mistaking which computer this dealer supports. When you call Mr. Hardware, a phone-maii system answers, announcing that it is running on an Amiga. When von talk to Joe Rotlmian, the owner, he n «j is quick to point out that his business has never sold anything but Amiga gear, and that the Amiga is the only computer he uses in running his business. About the only thing that Joe doesn't like about the Amiga is the emulation products that allow it to run IBM and Mac software, since he thinks that erodes the market for native Amiga software packages. Mail-Order Tips MAIL ORDER IS a convenient alternative for those of us who don’t have a dealer within driving distance. You make a simple phone call, and anything you want (relatively speaking) can be delivered to your door in a couple of days. The downside is that when you have a problem, you can’t take the item back to the person from whom von bought it and wait there until you get satisfaction. Here are a (etc tips for avoiding mail-order hassles:
1. One of the most frequent complaints about mail-order vendors is that they sometimes take orders for items that aren’t in stock, and don’t tell you that you'll have to wait for delivery. The worst offenders have even been known to charge vour crcdit-card C* i account before shipping the product. You can help avoid this problem by asking for a firm delivery date and letting them know that you'll be calling back if the deliver)’ is late. Make a note ol the time and date you placed the order, and get an order number if possible.
2. Hidden charges for shipping and handling are another potential p i 11 all. Don’t just assume that the price you'll pay is die price you see in the ad. Find out what the total cost is including shipping. Ask what the shipping weight is, and how the goods will be shipped. A $ 10 charge for ground shipment of a $ 40 game that weighs about a pound would be out ol line, but the same charge would be quite reasonable for next- day delivery.
3. Almost any company will do when the item that you buy works perfectly, but it’s another story when your purchase doesn't work, or even worse, works perfectly on another system but not on yours. Don’t assume that everything will go smoothly. Ask if the company has its own service department, and if technical-supporl people will be able to assist you if problems arise. Ask about their credentials. Determine exactly what the return policy is if you find that the item doesn't meet your needs, or you just plain can't gel ii to work right. Find out if the company charges any "restocking fees" for items that work lor them but not for you.
4. Ask questions about a product before yon buy. Experienced sales people will be able not only to answer your questions, but also to ask you some questions of their own (such as what kind of system you’re using, what version of Workbench, how much RAM you have, and so on). If they can’t answer your questions before the sale, the chances aren't good that they’ll be able to do so af terwards.
5. Ask for recommendations from satisfied users. Find out if your friends or members of a local users' group have had particularly good (or bad) experiences with a particular vendor. If you are online, ask for recommendations from other users. Such comments as ‘They fixed ray problem last'' or "I had to fight them for months" can help you to make a decision in a hurry. ? SL Although Mr. Hardware has been a dealership for only about three years, Joe has been an Amiga owner since September of 1985. I le believes that the AML (i bulletin-board system that he operates is the longest* running all-Amiga boat'd in the country, having been in continuous operation since March 10, 1986 (and he invites all Amiga modern owners to call the board at 516 234-6056). Joe went from hobbyist to doing repairs (lie’s been a technician for more than twenty years), and then added sales to his service business. Now, he runs the business as a one-man (and one-computer) operation selling, diagnosing, and troubleshooting, Joe prides himself on solving particularly difficult hardware problems. “They don’t call me Mr. Hardware for nothing,” he says. He doesn’t charge his customers for looking at their machines and making a M O diagnosis, and says that he is willing to help any Amiga owner who has a problem he or she hasn’t been able to solve. As if selling and servicing Amigas weren’t enough, Joe also markets a couple of software products that he and Ins wife have developed using Superbase (now Shase). These are Retail Escort, a point-of-sale and inventory system for retailers, and Video Escort, an accounting package that handles every aspect of a videographer's business. Even though there’s a Windows version of Superbase, don't bother waiting for the PC versions of these programs. Joe says that he wouldn’t consider porting them to the IBM. As for selling any other brand of computer, Joe is indignant even at the thought. ”1 think that everything else out there is junk, and I would be doing the world a disservice if 1 supported junk.” Although he expects that somebody will acquire rights to the Amiga in the near future, his plans don’t hinge on whether or not that happens. “Even if that doesn’t happen, I’ll keep doing what I’m doing, trying my best to keep my customers happy and productive. If there aren’t any new machines, then I’ll become a broker for used ones. As long as there is an installed base of Amiga owners looking for support. I'll he there to support them.” The Few, The Proud, The Amiga Dealer When talking to Amiga dealers, I heard some common themes repeated over and over. Most of these dealers had been with the Amiga for a long time (many since the machine was introduced), and some had been Commodore dealers before the .Amiga. Most of the successful dealers have become desktop-video specialists, and have embraced products like the Video boaster as a way of establishing their identity in the marketplace. Several have developed their own Amiga hardware or software products, or have become distributers of such products. Successful dealers have focused on support, and on developing long-term relationships with their customers. Although some dealers have closed their doors since Commodore's demise, Amiga owners should bear in mind that dealers have come and none throughout O o the past ten years. Even in Commodore’s heyday, there never were Amiga dealers on every corner. Sadly, there are major metropolitan areas that have never had a solid Amiga dealership. Whether because of mismanaged marketing, or public misunderstanding, or just because the machine was ahead of its time, the Amiga has always been a special product for special people. As long as there are users who appreciate the Amiga, however, and want to stick with it, there will be dealers there to support them. In researching ibis article, I have talked to a lot of dedicated Amiga dealers, and I regret that there was not enough space to profile all of them. I would particularly like to thank Amiga stalwarts John Salerno of DeVine Computer Systems in Newark, Delaware, and Bill Smith of Computer Basics in Hermitage, Pennsylvania, for taking time out of their busy schedules to answer a lot of questions. Do you have an Amiga dealership that deserves special recognition for dedication beyond the call of duty? Drop us a note giving the name, address, and phone number of your dealer, and we'll share your recoin- menclaiions with our readers in an upcoming issue. HB9 iliBfll
v. L I7J IH . . •. 1 ¦ • - li Before getting online became a trendy pastime, only certain seasoned Amiga users spent a large percentage of their waking hours on the commercial networks and the Internet, asking and answering questions, exchanging tips and advice at eveiy turn, and providing others with plenty of files to download. L imes change, and even the most diehard Amiga holdouts who’ve postponed getting a modem are finding it increasingly tough to get information from traditional sources, such as dealers and users' groups. With Commodore in the midst of a lengthy liquidation process, authorized dealers are few and far between and Amiga users' groups continue to dwindle in numbers at an alarming rate. The networks, however. Provide plenty of support, with active communities of Amiga professionals and enthusiasts, as well as lots of software, much of which is almost free for the taking. Clinging On? Frequent readers of Amiga-specific magazines or newsletters can learn a lot about the public-domain and freely distributable Amiga offerings found on the nets, but are likely to find only occasional mention of useful commercial software that’s also online. Vet, there has been a steady proliferation of third-party developers online, and many of the latest upgrades and patch software for their products appear in their respective areas 011 the nets. With a few minutes of online searching and down- O loading, you can often save yourself clays of unneces-i sarv work by retrieving reacly-niacle items. I here’s a multitude of other online offerings, too, such as clip art, fonts, objects, and textures items (hat no serious Amiga users can live without. You can also find online sources of information that could enable your Amiga live a longer, more prosperous life. If your Amiga is experiencing problems and you desperately need to get advice about parts or service, you can post a message detailing your problem on one of the Amiga sections and often quickly get a diagnosis or helpful advice in return. And sometimes you'll form alliances and friendships with other Amiga users in the process. Where To Be While waning Amiga support in all the areas is currently a serious problem, there are still ample resources from which to glean information in cyberspace. Here are some of the Amiga hot spots on the commercial networks, BIX, CompuServe, Gente, and Portal. Lackluster Amiga coverage and support on Delphi keeps it from inclusion in this listing. An online Amiga newsletter, Amiga Report, is also out there to provide information and support. (All telephone numbers given below are voice numbers.) BIX 800 693-4882 61 7 354-4 157 Even though it lacks some of the Amiga activity and growth it enjoyed a few years ago, a wealth of information. Files, and Amiga-savvy users still remain on
o ? BIX. While numbers are down from a few years ago. Tlie activity level is still substantial bv any standard, and a link to the Internet doesn't hurt this network's popularity, either. A mid-December Amiga file count revealed more than 1700 llles for the picking, including a number of patches for commercial sof tware, such as I AM's DiskSalv 3 (see "Reviews," Feb. ’95, p. 38). A quick tour of BIX reveals no f ewer than 13 .Amiga- specific areas, including that of Amiga World. An especially interesting and useful area is amiga.dev, which, as its name implies, is the conference for Amiga developers. Ex-Commodore employees and third-party developers continue to frequent that area, while quite a lew others check in on occasion. You can search by keywords on any subject in a matter of minutes in this area (and the 12 other Amiga areas as well), since all the message archives covering numerous subjects are still available within it. Many of the companies that continue to maintain their own areas on BIX include Digital Creations, Black Belt Systems, Softwood, and Expert Services. II a particular company isn't represented on BIX, there are usually numerous experts present to assist with quality information about any question that may arise. Need help with a Toaster hardware problem, or experiencing difficulty with the latest Dpaint? Just post your troubles as a message in one of the Amiga areas on BIX, and you'll probably get a helpful answer to almost any question in a day or two. 11 you're bashful about proclaiming your dilemma for all of BIXdom to see, just e-mail your question to one of the Amiga sysops for a speedy response. CompuServe 800 848-8199 614 457-0802 It's no secret that CompuServe offers generous amounts of Amiga-specific information for the taking. First, the Amiga area is broken down into five Forums: « » Amiga Arts, Amiga 'l ech, Amiga User, Amiga Vendor, and Amiga File Finder. Of these, the Amiga Vendor forum's Libraries Menu is where you'll find Amiga companies, with lengthy lists of files for upgrading and patching existing software, stand-alone utilities and accessory programs, and online tech help. While nearly all of these areas have suffered from waning support in recent years, there's still some reasonably good activity to be found. Thousands of Amiga files fill CompuServe's Amiga libraries. The Amiga User forum is composed of 18 library sections, while the Arts and Tech libraries comprise 17 and 12 sections, respectively. As with its Macintosh and PC counterparts on CompuServe, Amiga File Finder is simply a reference area used to quickly scan and search those myriad files. The Amiga Arts, Tech, and User forums are divided into a series of message bases, which are further subdivided into a series of sections. For instance, for tlie latest mix of gossip and facts (sorry you're on your own in trying to distinguish between the two), you can go to Section 3, Hot News and Rumors, in the Amiga User forum. Within these sections, you can post questions, scan for used equipment, make new friends with similar interests, and generally have a good time. I liken each one of these forums to an impromptu users'-group meeting that you can attend at your own convenience. If you're seeking upgrades to your existing software or looking for helpful files, it doesn't hurt to check out the available files in die Vendor forum. As with BIX. You needn't seek a company representative to ask questions about your software package. Rather, you can usually obtain useful information quite quickly hv simply posting a question in several of the message bases. You'll usually get an answer in a few days or less, depending on the complexity of the quest ion and the activity level at the time of posting. Genie 800 638-9636 A first-rate source of online help, Genie's Amiga forum is called the Amiga Roundtable, and it's nothing if’not complete. Unlike CompuServe's separate forums, Genie's Amiga Roundtable consists of two large forums, tlie Pro Am Roundtable and tlie Starship Amiga. Both the Pro Am Roundtable and the Starship Amiga are broken down into message bases and file libraries, with Pro Am containing 13 library sections and the more heavily traveled Starship possessing more than 40. There are many thousands of Amiga files in the Starship libraries. Starship's message base consists of more than 30 sections, including 12 for vendors. Black Bell Systems, I NOV At conics, Migraph, and Nova Designs are but a few of the companies found here. Gett ing product support is easy, as most of the Amiga companies found in i his roundtable actively support their areas, with other users filling in the gaps. One Amiga company that maintains an above-normal visibility on Gknie is PageStream developer, Soft-Logik. Its menu option at the top ol the Amiga Roundtable whisks yon away to Soft-Logik's own individual area. Portal 800 433-6444 408 973-911 1 When it comes to Amiga support, Portal easily qualifies as one of the more interesting networks. While a "GO AMIGA" command reveals only a few J menu entries to choose from (File Libraries, Fish Disks, Message Bases, and Moderators’ Area), there's a lot more there than initially meets the eye. In particular, File Libraries reveals almost 40 separate collections of liles. The Fish Disks entry contains all the useful Fred Fish disks in their entirety. (Portal was the first commercial network to accomplish this feat.) Message-wise, the Message Bases section contains the Amiga Usenet area, which is further broken down into 1(5 subareas. Selecting any of these subareas gives you a menu of messages straight from the famed I-way, literally opening up a world of opportunity in the process. II you're in search of general information concerning Amiga software or hardware, you can check out the Graphics, Hardware, or Programmer sections in the Usenet area. For the latest gossip on the Internet concerning the Amiga, you can check out Section 12 (Misc). As its name implies, you’ll find there a conglomeration of news and ramblings pertaining to all manner of Amiga doings. Marketplace, which is another Usenet section, is the place to look for notices of Amiga equipment and software for sale. Portal’s Amiga-specific message sections run the gamut from AGA Discussions to CDTV CD32, and there’s even an all-new Amiga Mosaic section. If you're looking for liles on Portal, there are almost 40 sections offering everything from Arexx programs to dip art, all nicely organized for quick retrieval. If you're seeking online Amiga companies on Portal, roughly a dozen lie in wait. Amiga Report Internet e-mail: jcompton@bbs.xnet.com Fax: 708 741-0(589 To round out our examination of the online help area, there’s also an excellent Amiga "electronic newsletter." If you’re looking for a great source of online information, Amiga Report is just the ticket. Compiled by Jason Compton, Robert Niles, and David Tiberio, Amiga Report provides weekly updates on the Commodore liquidation situation, plus other news, online happenings, new products, and a little bit of humor and rumor, to boot. Its most notable claim to fame was its publishing in their entirety of all the CEI Com- modore online conferences that were held on the major networks this past fall. Presented in AmigaGuidc format, Amiga Report is intended to be an easy read, and it has proved extremely helpful to beginner and expert alike. Need help with your Amiga? Want to learn more about using the Shell, how a hard drive is organized, or whatever? With fewer computer experts walking the walk and talking the talk these days, a good book is a great substitute. We’ve rounded up seven of the most current literary offerings and reviewed them for you here. (To contact the publishers cited here, eons alt the “Manufacturers' Distributors* Addresses” list on p. 62.) Amiga Workbench A-Z Bruce Smith Bruce Smith Books, £14.95 ISBN 1-873308-28-0 Part of the "Insider Guide*' series from Bruce Smith Books, this 250-page reference work claims to be the “definitive guide” to Workbench 3. The book describes every Workbench topic, menu item, command, and utility in alphabetical order. Read straight through, it may be confusing to read about, say, Glick- ToFront before the book has gotten around it) defining Commodities, As a reference, however, the book Hows just line, and I love its comprehensive “lile locator,” an index of sorts that identifies exactly where to look on disk for every part of the Workbench. On the other hand, I found much of the information a bit superficial. When discussing datatypes, for instance, there is no mention of how to install their components, nor is there an adequate description of the Workbench’s new formatting options. Amiga Disks and Drives Paul Overaa Bruce Smith Books, £14.95 ISBN 1-873308-34-5 This book, another “Insider Guide,” covers so much ground that "disks and drives” is simply a common thread that passes through all of the chapters. Discussing topics as varied as hard-disk basics, AmigaDOS commands, viruses, and how to install new software on a hard disk, it does try to cover it all. Yet, it contains a wealth of information that the typical user and even the advanced user, lor that matter is unlikely to know J already. On the whole, most ol the book's information 4 is not mission-critical, but fun to read nonetheless. While the book often goes into harrowing detail on ? Some matters, there are other occasions when important stuff‘is conspicuous by its absence. When discussing archivers, for instance, the author describes how compression software works, but then demonstrates the use of onlv one archiver ZOO which hasn’t been used on a practical basis for years. Amiga DOS Reference Guide Sheldon Leetnon Compute Books, SI5 post paid (sold onlv by Sheldon I.eetnon) ISBN 0-87455-268-0 If I were shopping for a comprehensive look at AmigaDOS, there are few authors I’d trust more than Sheldon I.eetnon, a true Amiga veteran. He has now updated his Amiga DOS Reference Guide to include AmigaDOS 3. More than just a reference, it includes a detailed introduction to the Shell and AmigaDOS that spans nearly half the book. The tutorials start with the basics and extend to sophisticated script files. Though the Reference Guide is authoritative and complete, the command-reierence section's turgid style reminds me all too much of Fortran texts 1 used in college. On the other hand, this book does in one convenient volume most of what the next two titles do taken together. Mastering AmigaDOS 3: Reference Mark Smiddy Bruce Smith Books, £21.95 ISBN 1 -873308-08-6 Mastering Amiga DOS 3: Reference covers much of the same information as Lcemon's tome in a much lighter style. Each works the same heat AmigaDOS commands but there are some important differences. The emphasis in Smiddy's book is understandability; plain English explanations dominate, and page breaks divide even' command, making the book much easier on the eye. While half of Leemon’s book is dedicated to introducing AmigaDOS, Mark Smiddy dives right into command descriptions almost on page one; if you're looking to learn AmigaDOS from scratch, this isn’t the book to start with. He rounds out his book by discussing viruses, the IFF format, and AmigaGuide files. The only book around that explains AmigaGuide in detail, Mastering AmigaDOS 3 tells you enough to let you create your own help Files. Masteritig Am igaDOS 3: T utorial Mark Smiddy and Bruce Smith Bruce Smith Books, £21.95 ISBN 1-873308-20-5 A companion to Mastering AmigaDOS 3: Reference, this tutorial is a detailed introduction to the intricacies of AmigaDOS. It is appropriate for the absolute beginner it explains, for instance, that a space is required between words in the command line but it does get into advanced topics like scripting with variables. The Tutorial doesn’t stand on its own very well; it isn't a complete look at AmigaDOS and, as a consequence, begs to be bought in conjunction with the more comprehensive Reference book. Together, though, they make a most recommended pair. Denny Atkin’s Best Amiga Tips and Secrets Denny Atkin (’.ompute! Books, 520 (sold only by Denny Atkin) ISBN 0-87455-275-3 Denny Atkin has been poking around the Amiga since the beginning, and his advice is always welcome. His latest book is not exactly an essential reference tool, but it is a collection of observations and neat ideas for improving the way you use your Amiga. And while many of the items that appear in Denny's book have been seen elsewhere, it does offer compact, one-stop shopping for about 200 cool tips. Ever wonder how to permanently change the RAM disk icon? Halt a background task? Some of his tips are just plain common sense (in order to see all the files in a directory, choose the “Show All Files” menu iiem), bur many others are definitely worth the price of admission. Tips and Secrets gives up-to-date buying and upgrade advice, as well as guidelines on optimizing your system, using emulators, and recording video. (Perhaps my favorite tip, though, is his advice on cooking macaroni and cheese!) An updated 2nd edition is now available in a disk-based format using AmigaGuide indexing features. Co n n ect Yo u r A m iga! A Guide to the Internet, LANs, BBSs and Online Sendees Dale L. Larson Intangible Assets Manufacturing, S24.95 ISBN 1 -885876-92-5 Dale Larson is a former Commodore engineer from the Amiga Networking Group. This, his first book, is a survey of networking options for your Amiga. Dale’s broad treatment of telecommunications includes such diverse topics as Fax Modems, LANs, Ethernet, ParNet, and “SneakerNet.” The book is a veritable encyclopedia of InterneL and networking terms. If you are preparing to network Amigas to each other or to other Pcs, this book provides advice to get you started, including a description of existing hardware and software solutions. And because Dale is one of t he principal authors of the Envoy networking software, Connect Your Amiga! Is an excellent resource lor learning more about that package. If you're a novice who’s never heard of an FIT or think that a Gopher is a large rodent, this book is a good place to start. The fact that it's a dedicated source of information about networking Amigas makes it unique and something virtually impossible to locale until now. Summary Which book you buy depends on what soi l of information you're hungry for. If it's AmigaDOS you crave, choose the two Bruce Smith offerings or the singlehelping AmigaDOS Reference Guide. Denny Atkin's Best Amiga Tips and Secrets is a potpourri of Amiga miscellany, while Amiga Disks and Drives and Connect Your o Amiga! Are full of tasty information about a broad range of topics. If you're new to Workbench 3, give Amiga Workbench A-7. A try. Whatever you choose, happy reading!

While many of' you have heard about tlie 4 4 Web, some probably have never seen it in action and don’t know how to get connected to it. This article should help get you started. So-called “browser” programs are the easiest way n> navigate the Web. And the most popular- and intuitive- one is named Mosaic. While available on other platforms, Mosaic hadn’t found its way to the Amiga that is, until now. We'll look at the Amiga version, Amosaic, and show you how to add it to your system and get yourself up and running on the Web. Bui first a little bit about the Web. Wonders of the Web Perhaps the best way to describe the World Wide Web to the uninitiated might go something like this: Envision having a real-time, interactive "kiosk” on your desk (even your home desk), with a graphical, mouse- clickable interface. It has beautiful color pictures and hyperlinked hot-text buttons and even plays audio files and animations. But ibis kiosk doesn’t just let you navigate data on 7-fntv Hcmr fotrh 1995 ILLUSTRATED BY ROBERT BURGER = fie wefa Mosaic 5tvle! Your hard drive; it's connected with and provides access to thousands ol databases and computer “sites" all over the world. And it’s not just limited to a few areas of interest. Like tlie Usenet newsgroups, virtually any subject you can think of computers, graphics, lilm and television, art museums, traffic flow, fishing, politics, all branches of science, cooking, popular music, magazines, sociology. New York subways. Disneyland, you name it* is available for you to browse through in near real-time on the Web. There are commercial Web sites. There are educational sites. The government is on in And there’s a guv who lias a workstation with a camera connected to n it that takes a picture of a fish tank in his office each minute, and you can download that 24-bit picture and watch his fish swim around. (With apologies to Dave Barry, 1 swear 1 am not making this up!) Tlie Web is immense more vast, by far, than any encyclopedia or any hundred CD-ROMs. And while you are navigating through this world-connected kiosk, so are hundreds ol thousands of other people all over the planet. In a nutshell, that’s the Web. It’s ever-changing, expanding, and improving at an astronomical rate, too. And you and your Amiga can now hop onto it and become a part of it. Bill’s and Al’s Excellent Web Adventure A couple of months ago, (1-SPAN (the Cable-Satellite Public All airs Network) broadcast a live press conference in which Vice President Al Core demonstrated the White House’s new World Wide Web site using Mosaic. Via a mouse at bis speaker’s podium. Core clicked around on a beautifully rendered "home page” (right) to take a tour of the Executive branch of government showing maps, (Ioorplans, hot-linked texts, and photographs, and playing his own audio “welcome” message. With the intuitive, graphically oriented Internet browser program Mosaic newly available for the Amiga, you can start surfing the World Wide Web right now Here’s the nuts-and-bolts rundown on getting Amosaic up and running on your system. If you were one of the millions who saw that presentation, you got a small inkling of what the Web is about and what Mosaic can do. Mosaic is one of a number of graphical browsers for the World Wide Web. It's been available for some of the more powerful computer platforms around (including robust PC clones, Macs, and Unix boxes). Recently, a group of devoted Amiga developers has ported this cutting-edge technology to our favorite machine and made it available to eveiyone free for the taking. Many thanks to Michael Fischer, Michael Witbrock, Michael Meyer, Graham Walter, Steve Dunham, Hakan I andogan, and Joe Rumsev, the guys who did all the Amosaic development work without compensation. II you have an account with an Internet sendee provider, such as Portal, you may have played with Lynx, which is a text-only WWW browser. Lynx is slick, but it's only text, rather like an online AmigaGuide n document. Comparing Mosaic to Lynx is like equating a visit to Las Vegas with reading a magazine article about some guy’s visit to that city. If you want to get going with Amosaic, however, there are some rather strict requirements, and you will need to acquire and install quite a hit of software. What follows is a basic rundown on what you’ll need. As in most complicated endeavors, it's really not as tough as it looks (although the devil’s in the details). So don't get discouraged by all of this it took me about half a dav to find all the soft- tJ V»rr I’rf'i.iilrnl"* tXrlrolib* Even the White House has its own Home Page compliments of Mosaic. Ware and get it up and running. And. Remember, you have to install all of this stuff onlv once. Onstaffina 7 Jvtnsaic I’ve broken down the installation requirements and procedures into three categories: hardware, Internet sen ice-provider account, and software. Hardware Requirements You can use any Amiga model having a serial port, but you need Workbench 2.1 or later to run Amosaic, and WB 15.0 or 15.1 are preferable. While Amosaic will work in a limited fashion in 2.1. its developers have 7-fot *7Veit Sites AFTER A FEW months of cruising the World Wide Web with Amosaic, I've built up quite a hot list of places I’ve visited.

Due to Mosaic's graphics-intensive nature, it helps to have a 2MB Agnus, and thus 2MB of chip RAM. But you can probably get by with 1 MB if that's all you have. You should also have 2MB of fast RAM, and a hard drive is a must. Installing all the required bits and pieces will consume a little more than 3MB of disk space. Service Provider As far as access is concerned, you must have either a shell account ora full SLIP (Serial Line Internet Protocol) account with an Internet service provider. Sorry about that, you CompuServe, Gfnie, Delphi, and BIX subscribers, but you'll have to link up elsewhere to use Amosaic. You can employ Amosaic without a SLIP account bv using The Internet Adaptor (TIA), a Unix program distributed by a company on the net called markelplace.com. Using a File Transfer Protocol (FTP), you obtain this program, install it in your shell account, and it tricks the AmiTCP software (the networking package that puts your Amiga on the Internet) into thinking you have a SLIP account. TIA works well for me (in my Portal shell account) in linking up with Amosaic. To find out how to get TIA, send an empty e-mail letter to: tia-info@marketplace.com, and within five minutes you'll get an automatic reply with all the information you need. IIA is the only software described here that’s com- j mercial you get a free 14-day trial, then pay a onetime $ 25 personal license fee to keep using it. It’s also the only piece of software you need that does not get downloaded to vour Amiea. J O Amiga Software You can find all the files named below in the Amiga Zone on Portal, or on Aminet, the world-wide network of Amiga-supporting FTP sites (and probably plenty of other places as well). Til include the Portal “go numbers’' for reference.
1) First, you need the Amosaic software itself. There are lour flavors of it, hut I’m going to list only two of them (the other two require either DNET or Commodore’s AS225R networking package, and I'm assuming you have neither one of those). The first of these two is:
4842. 3.13.687 M0SAIC1.2AMITCP.LHA This Mosaic works with AmiTCP, and you need it to actually get Mosaic working for you live and online. (After you are online, visit the Amosaic Home Page on the Web and download the newer version, 1.2.1, which has improvements and bug fixes.) The other one is:
4842. 3.13.689 MOSAIC!.2N0NET.LHA This is a “no-net” version of Amosaic. It does not require a network connection (so it won’t really do anything useful), but it allows you to see what the software is like, and it comes with some practice files as well as documentation.
2) Next, get AmiTCP. You’ll need at least version
3. 0B2:
4842. 3.13.760 AMITCP-30B2.LHA or, preferably, the newer 4.0:
4842. 3.13.862 AMITCP-DEMO-40.LHA which has a much better installation routine. A fully functioning demo version of 4.0 is downloadable, and by paying the fee for it you'll get a version without the startup-delay message. (It’s useful to know that Ami*TCP can be used for many other networking tasks besides Amosaic. F or instance, there are FTP “daemons” that let you log into an FTP site and get files from it directly to your Amiga’s hard drive. There’s also a wonderful IRC chatting client for AmiTCP called “Grapevine,” by Brian J. Ceiveny. The beauty of an AmiTCP-networked connection is thai vou can literally run Amosaic and these other clients at the same time over one connection!)
3) Amosaic’s interface is driven by Stefan Stuntz’s Magical User Interface (MUI) library and associated files, so you’ll have to download:
4842. 3.7.436 MUI22USR.LHA Bv the way, Amosaic runs a lot more smoothly if vou j j j use MUI prefs to put it on its own custom screen, rather than running it on the Workbench.
4) Amosaic can maintain a hotlist of all your favorite WWW sites. Because the Web is so vast, you will want to take note of places you’ve enjoyed visiting so you can return to them quickly at a later time. If you don't want to end up with slips of paper or sticky notes all over your desk, you'll want to get AMI lot List by downloading:
4842. 3.13.684 AMHOTLISTV1.50.LHA Again, you’ll do well to use ML I prefs to run AMI lot List on Amosaic’s screen. So that’s it. With the four Amiga software packages (AMosaic, AmiTCP, MUI, and AMI lot List) and either a true SLIP account or TIA and a shell account, you’re ready to surf the net in style. You’re bound to run into some problems getting all of these things installed and working for you. But the good thing is that many other people have already been there, done that. There’s a lot of help available on Usenet in comp.sys.amiga,networking and comp.sys.amiga.datacomm. There are also a couple of excellent user-written AmigaGuide files to help you put it all together. They are on Aminet or Portal or are available from cliffg@cup.portal.com and rcr@netcom.com through the Internet. The Future Even though Amosaic is onlv a year old, it has already ' » 4 fallen a bit behind other platforms’ Web browsers in the feature-wars department. The Amosaic team is already working on its second-generation Amiga browser, which will probably be a commercial product with its advanced features ported back to the free Amosaic. ¦ Haw Laser is wodcrator sysop for the Amiga Zone on the Portal network. Zurich, where he met his wife, Lucie Lanoue, also a singer. Gentile’s singing career soon began to pick up, and he started to perform with some of the “bigger singers” (he has sung with Pavarotti). He encountered his first Amiga an A2000 in a German computer store. “I picked it up right away,” he said. “I really had no previous experience with computers ' Shortly after becoming an Amigaphile, a friend recommended Bars&Pipes (The Blue Ribbon Sound- Works), and he acquired that, as well. Both matches were successful, and Gentile has come to depend on Bars&Pipes and his Amiga, now an A4000. THE KEY OF ¦ ¦ ¦ MUSIC IS AS diverse and varied as the musicians who create it. And so it is with the Jive musicians A W interviewed for this piece. Each brings variations of experience to the table, blit all agree on one thing: The Amiga is a helpmate none of them would willingly do without when it comes to making the music they love. Louis Gentile WHEN YOU THINK of music involving computers, styles like New Age or maybe rock most often come to O 4 mind. Yet, of all the many musicians who use the Amiga in their work, Louis Gentile may very well be the only opera singer. Ever since he was 13 years old, Gentile has made his living as a singer. In the 1970s, popular music and rock were steady fare for Gentile’s Connecticut-based band, Liquid Sunshine. The pop-music business, though, can be fickle, Gentile explained, so when someone complimented him on his voice and suggested he should study classical music, he did. O A move to Zurich in 1982 to study classical voice even- tually led him to a new career, home, and wife. He accepted a position to sing with an opera house in As his career as an opera singer takes him fairly far afield- he's often on the road with his company to France, Italy, and Scandinavia he doesn’t have as much time as he would like to sit down at the computer to experiment and “play.” Digital Music Coach I hat doesn't stop hint, though, when eventually he gets back to home base and, with his wife, begins to prepare for new roles. "I'm sort of a toy freak,” Gentile says about his admiration for the Amgia. “But even better, once we had a chance to use it, it's the best and fastest tool for its . . . The computer is a major tool. My wife Lucie is a better pianist than I . . . She puts all the parts, track by track, into Bars&Pipes, and I can then add some finesse to the music ... 1 can use the Amiga to rehearse a new part. If I get a call to play a new part, | Bars&Pipes] turns my Amiga into a full-time coach it’s very convenient!” Bars&Pipes has transformed Gentile into, as lie puts it, “a one-man band.” And never having to worry about the other members of the band, says Gentile, is “therapeutic . . . I’ve always had trouble with drummers!” Gentile has written music fora CD he produced with his Amiga, as well as a musical score lor 22 Kilometers Gegen Rechts, a film critical of the skinhead movement. (In English, the film title translates as “22 kilometers to the right.”) The CD, entitled The Operatic Experience, is an unusual mixture of opera and pop (including one cut called “Never Could Throw Away My Guitar”). In it, Gentile takes a caustic view of the internal politics that drive the opera industry. But you needn’t he privy to the goings-on in the tight-knit world of opera to appreciate Gentile’s sarcastic wit. The Operatic Experience is also dedicated ”... to all people, in all lines of work, who suffer from the incompetence and indifference of bureaucratic politics when trying to stage their own daily opera.” Hmmm , . , that could cover a whole lot of us. By Jan Jackson John McFee s- AW PROFILES OF FIVE AMI6A MUSICIANS IN MCFEE HAS played with some of the more bands in the history ol' rock. He is a member of the Doobie Brothers and has also played with the likes of Van Morrison, the Grateful Dead, Steve Miller, Elvis Costello, Boz Scaggs, and Huey Lewis and the News. What would inspire him to dabble with the Amiga for sound production? McFee first became acquainted with the Amiga when shopping for a system for his son in 1989. “We looked at Macs and Pcs,” says McFee, “hut once we saw tlie Amiga, we said forget those other ones!” Again, because of bis son’s interest, he began to leant it and found it comfortable and logical to use. Like Louis Gentile, McFee is a Bars&Pipcs fan, having picked up a copy of version 1.0 when it first came out. I le has followed the product as it evolved, upgrading to Bars&Pipcs Professional. “1 like it,” he says, “[because] it takes a different approach.” In fact, when reached at his Santa Barbara home for this telephone interview, he was using the program to rehearse for a benefit concert to be held that weekend: “I haven’t played some of these [Steve Miller] songs in a while so I programmed Bars&Pipes so I can practice.” McFee’s musical Amiga is also outfitted with SunRize Industries’ AD516 high-fidelity audio card and Studio- 16 editing system, a setup that bolsters his traditional 24-track analog professional system. Using the Amiga in conjunction with his conventional studio gear “has really expanded the possibilities,” he explains. In the Land of the Rizing Sun How he came across the SunRize system is an interesting tale. When touring in Japan with Guy Allison (whose credits include work with The Moody Blues, Air Supply, Boz Staggs, and Don Henley among others) and Stuart Cook (Credence Cleanvater Revival see the next section for more on Cook), McFee was reading AmigaWorld and noticed the SunRize ad for Studio 16. Allison had been discussing his thoughts about purchasing a Macintosh system with Pro’Fools. It was going to cost about $ 14,000 for a system equivalent to an Am i ga with t h e AD 5 I 6 S Lud i o 16 ins la I loci. M c: Fee showed him the advertisement, and the two began faxing SunRize from Tokyo with inquiries about specifications. Before returning to the States, both McFee and Allison had placed orders for the sound system with Allison opting for an A3000T, as well. “When I first got it [AD516 Studio 16), 1 was a little hesitant to use it,” says McFee. But later on, while he was finishing up a mix for a new Peter Lewis recording, he realized that what the project needed was a little acoustic guitar to really make it work. John McFee Doobie Brother meets Amiga. The problem was that he was only four days away from a Doobie Brothers tour and bad already used all 24 tracks of bis analog equipment. “I remembered the Adf> 16 and tried it.” He was able lo add another eight tracks for a 32-track system. Needless to say, McFee was very pleased. When asked il’hc ever considered using the Amiga and an AD516 Studio 16 in place of his conventional equipment, he paused a moment and said, ”... the more 1 use it, it might be possible. Because of its nonlinear aspects, it offers a lot more flexibility than traditional [methods].” We’ll be checking the liner notes of his next CD tape to see how things develop. Stuart Cook AN AMIGA OWNER since 1991. Songwriter musician Stu Cook is probably one of the system’s most most ardent supporters. “It’s actually the most economic and powerful computer ever made because of the compactness ol tlie operating system,” says Cook. “T he architecture is so well thought out. My wife has a PC done . . . It’s a nightmare to use!” Even as events at Commodore took a turn for the worse during recent weeks, Cook redoubled his enthusiasm for the machine: “Hie Amiga was determined to be the orphan of the PC world . . . But I’m not selling mine ... I hope that something goodwill finally happen to the Amiga now that Commodore is out of the picture.” A true democrat when it comes to finding uses for his Amiga, Cook employs his machine to run the full gamut of applications: database, word processing, 3-D graphics and rendering, virtual reality, scenery animation, and, of course, music. Cook has a “small project studio” in his Calabasas, California, home where his A3000T is integrated with some high-caliber professional sound-produc- lion equipment. Among various projects, he develops and produces song demos. (According to a reliable source who shall remain nameless, Cook has enough gold records to wallpaper a barn.) A >1 I ; A M li S I C I A i S Also, he says, “I'm just about to get involved in my son’s film project. Jesse is studying film production at Montana University . . . Lie has a veiy large documentary. We’re going to be using the Al)5 Hi to handle all the dialog and the video queues.14 Cook uses Blue Ribbon’s Bars&Pipes Pro in conjunction with SunRize's AD516 a combination he favors because of the ease of integration between them. “It’s nice to see two unrelated companies work together the way they have. It’s really been successful." Coming from a man who has engaged in some successful collaborations himself, that’s high praise indeed. Cassandra Gaston “PVK ALWAYS LOVK1) animation and sound eflects,” begins Cassandra Gaston, a budding Los Angeles vicleographer filmmaker with an ear for quality sound production. “I bought an Amiga two years ago. I had no idea how it worked, but I went ahead and bought it. Two months later I bought a Video Toaster (NewTek). I’m learning as I go." Last December, Gaston spent some time in a classroom at a cable station to learn about acceptable formats and how to put together programs for area viewing: “I’d wanted to put together sonic little talk shows for airing on cable stations, but first I needed to learn how to put my videos into a format that cable stations can use.” Understanding the importance of sound quality, she aquired an AD516 Studio lb combo from SunRize and Blue Ribbon's Bars&Pipes. Without a lot of experience with music software, she decided also to buy Blue Ribbon’s Superjam and a SMP1 K output module. “Everything is all so easy to use,” she explains. “Friends come over and they can't believe that I’ve hooked up all this equipment!” Gaston began making videos for business advertisements, using Superjam to produce the music and then striping the tape. In some respects, however, her interest in video and film production is different from that of many of her peers she really loves the technology and finds it intriguing and intellectually stimulating, Cassandra also has other pursuits and priorities she feels are even more important: She works as a registered nurse in a newborn unit in a local hospital. In a more serious tone she explains, “I’m not in this to make money. Living here in South Central Los Angeles, it sometimes feels like we’re experiencing a plague ... the media has had such a negative influence on people.” Her hope is to reach people by access to cable, producing something of substance to educate and uplift in a way that will get people’s attention. “Sometimes it just takes one person to do something positive.” Kelly Craven KELLY CRAVEN HAS had his A2000 so long he has a hard time remembering when he bought it: “I think I paid about SI700 for it . . , maybe six years ago?” Craven, drummer in a studio band called Abandon Reason, is into a little bit of everything: He repairs keyboards and guitars and dabbles a bit in a small recording studio in his home just outside of Atlanta, Georgia. As a digital musician, he cut his teeth on a program called Master Tracks for the Commodore b4. Choosing his Amiga was an effortless decision, he explains, “because when I went to the computer store [to upgrade his system], I was able to see the Amiga, the Atari, and the Macintosh running side by side . . . The Amiga outperformed them all, simply because of the multitasking capability of the machine. Looking for new software, soon Craven also found himselfdealing with the folks at Blue Ribbon. “1 originally downloaded a demo of Bars&Pipes from People- Link and immediately liked it because of its editing functions." The proximity of Craven’s home to Atlanta- based Blue Ribbon SoundWorks eventually brought them closer together. Now an avid Bars&Pipes aficionado. Craven had already been dabbling in Basic j O when he f irst saw Blue Ribbon's Rules for Tools package. I le eventually learned to program in C from using it and has since programmed between 30 to 40 tools. “I programmed what was useful to me as a drummer,” he explains, “the way a drummer would play them.” As far as recording projects involving the Amiga, Craven had this to say: “As we're not a performing band, we’ve played probably only 10 times together as a group, and we recorded all original music.” Craven and Abandon Reason recorded a CD at his house called Dreams in Black a? White. "We did all the drums and controlled all the effects with Bars&Pipes.” What’s amazing about this project, he explains, is that “we used all this computer synchronization, but you would never be able to tell [that] the computer’s influence is underneath the music." That's the kind of thing that probably only a drummer could really understand and appreciate. ¦ Jan Jackson, a former editor at Amiga World, now 'works as a technical writerJor a hanking organization in Connecticut. Besides missing the New Hampshire countryside, she also laments that she can't convince her new employers to bring in Amigas to replace all those DC clones. Cl guess they have no music in their hearts," she concludes.) Write to her c o A77iigaWorld.

By Joel Hagen IN THE FIELD of cinematography, the special-effects technique known as “time lapse” has a long history among professionals, researchers, and hobbyists. The goal of time-lapse photography is to reveal something about a phenomenon or process that is difficult to perceive in the normal How of time, 'Time-lapse photography clarifies such processes by altering the apparent Mow of time until the dynamics occur at a rate we can perceive. You can watch a flower bloom in seconds rather than hours. You can watch a snowman melt, a spiderweb grow, or a culture spread on a petri dish. Time-lapse effects are particularly well suited to experiments on the desktop computer. And recent hardware and software developments on the Amiga make it easier than ever to experiment with this fascinating technique. Instant Gratification Unlike normal motion-picture filming in which one frame is shot eveiy 24th of a second (or eveiy 30th of a second for video), the time-lapse effect involves lengthening the intcmil between shooting successive frames to several seconds, minutes, or even hours. The result, when these frames are viewed at 24 or 30 frames per second, is an illusion of accelerated time. Time-lapse photography is frequently done with a movie camera. Tlie necessity of mailing oil film for developing, however, involves continual expense and a frustrating wait to see results. It is anvthing bill a spontaneous process. With the Amiga and a video camera, you can view the results of a time-lapse experiment moments after you complete it. For your first project, you might want to capture the movement of clouds in the sky as seen in the accompanying illustration. You will need some way of taking pictures and inputting them into the Amiga. I use a Sonv I Ii-8 camcorder and a GYP 1Y24 Iraniegrabber. Your equipment, however, can be as minimal as a disposable camera and access to a scanner. T he plan is simple. Find something interesting that happens very slowly, point a rigidly mounted camera at it. Lake pictures at regular intervals, and play them back as an animation to see more clearly what was going on. At a o o basic level you can manually capture a frame at regular intervals, save it to disk, and later compress the frames into an animation. Even if you have an old Digi-View setup, this method works line if you have the time to man the equipment. Digi-View’s slow scan is no problem for the rate of change involved in most time-lapse projects. You can often simply let the length of time it takes to grab and save a frame serve as the interval between shots. If you keep working at a steady pace, your intervals will be regular enough for most purposes. For longer intervals, pace yourself with a digital clock or timer. Estimate the length of time you will be recording a phenomenon; then, based on the desired number of frames in your finished animation, you can calculate the appropriate interval between shots. II you have a Iraniegrabber that floes real-time captures of video images, use it in conjunction with image-processing software to automate the time-lapse process. ImageFX (Nova Designs), for example, provides excellent control over the IV24. You can use the Arexx button in the ImageFX Toolbox to select any of several included Arexx programs, such as TinleLapse.ifx, written by Thomas Krehbiel. T his program grabs frames at regular intervals, rcn- O O dcrs them in an Amiga format, and appends the result in an ANIM file. If you have an AG A machine, HAMS is an excellent render mode. To create a time-lapse cloud animation like the illustrated sequence, just cable your video camera to the IV24 input, point tlie camera at the sky, and launch the Arexx program. You are prompted to specif)- an interval in seconds and an output filename. The program runs muil vou bit Ctrl-c to abort. Be sure to t The principles of time-lapse photography can be adapted easily to your Amiga to develop interesting animation and image-processing techniques. Select the framegrabber in Prefs Scaliner before running the Arexx program, By specifying the number ol' seconds when prompted, you can have any interval up to 277 hours between frames. In the illustration, 10 seconds was used. Combined with render and save times, the total interval was a litile less than one minute, which ‘gives dra- malic motion to the clouds in the final animation. Experiment to achieve the interval you require. Arexx Variations if you are familiar with Arexx programming, you can write utilities to suit your specific needs and add them to the ImageFX Rexx directory. .Alternatively, vou might trv customizing
* 7 t O t o existing Arexx programs. For example, you could modify the Time!.apse.ifx program to create a 30- frame animation, then stop. In a text editor, locate the DO FOREVER line and change it ro reach DO i=1 to 30 Another variation you might try on the same program saves a series of 24-bit images numbered incrementally. In your text editor delete the entire block of the program identified with the Render module and the GETRENDER command. Delete the LockRange 0 ON line just to be tidy. Locate the DO FOREVER loop at the end of the program and substitute O DO i = l to 30 Scanner Grab SaveBufferAs ILBM ""output| |i"" IF lapse ~ = 0 THEN ADDRESS COMMAND
* c:Wait' lapse END When launched with a video source, the program will save a series of 24-bit images with the filename you provide and, in this case, numbers 1-30 appended. You can add other Arexx commands to perform sharpening, edge detection, or other image-processThis time-lapse sequence of moving clouds was automatically captured using ImageFX. The GVP IV24 framegrabber, and an Arexx script. Outdoors, you may need to disable automatic exposure for best results. Always use a stable tripod. If you have no video input for your Amiga but have access to a scanner, use any camera on a stable mount and shoot a series ol prints. When you scan them, be careful about consistent registration. Your time- lapse sequences can be composited into other scenes for interesting effects, used for serious research purposes, or perhaps just viewed to satisfy your curiosity about phenomena that occur in different perceptual time frames. ¦ Joel Hagen's credits include work in art, astronomy, science fiction, and soft ware development. Write to him at 10512 Sawyer, Oakdale, CA 95361. Please ¦» include a stamped, self addressed envelope fora reply. Ing operations before saving. This suggests powerful research applications. If it is inconvenient to cable a camera directly to the Amiga, videotape a sequence with your camcorder on a stable tripod and then grab frames later. This gives vou freedom to record O events in remote locations. If the phenomenon you are recording occurs within the time frame of the battery charge, you can simply let the camera run uninterrupted. For phenomena with slower dynamics or longer duration, shoot 10 or 20 seconds of tape at appropriate intervals. Separate each shot with a few seconds of black, or better vet with a few seconds of a card on which you have written the sequential number of the frame. For tape input shot this way, you may find it difficult to reliably automate frame capture. Your best choice may be manual playback and capture. If you are shooting indoors, keep the lighting consistent. If you are shooting

CALL 800-258-0533 Game Preserve By Peter Olafson, A W Games Editor Special Report: Wargames Rumors of the death of the Amiga wargame are great lv exaggerated. In the last few months, we have seen some remarkable advances in the siate-of-thc-sirategv-ari. Charge . . . And n O charge it. (Grin). UFO: Enemy Unknown (MicroProse UK) Once upon a time, there were a pair of nice Amiga games called Laser Squad and Lords of Power, and they lived happily in a land called Breach. The games were a delightful step up from their models, hut, small, mission-based, and editor- free. Couldn’t live happily ever after. The End. Or not. LFO, designed by Laser Squad’s creators, takes that concept and makes a campaign out of it. No, I take that back: It makes it a whole world. Our world, in fact. Every paranoid nightmare has conic true in MicroProse UK’s conversion ol X- Comm for AGA machines. 1 he aliens are landing, thcv’re none O J too friendly, and your small team, equipped with a pair of interceptors and landing craft, is all that stands in their way. Your first task is to shoot down a UFO and take over t he crash site. Not a small task. You end up in an angled-dow n tactical scenario in the lashion of games like Sabre I earn and Breat h, hut with beautiful scenery, a velvet cloak of atmosphere, a hunch of very on-tlie-ball aliens waiting out there in the darkness, and some great features (like multiple altitudes) to keep vou primed. And from here, the game reallv begins to blossom into scavenging lor alien artifacts, research, and maintenance of O n your bases and larger strategic considerations. I don’t have any complaints about this loving conversion that can’t be accounted for by my own ineptitude, and I don't share the one I’ve heard about the game's speed. For the dedicated strategy gamer, UFO is the shortest path to heaven, (A). Lords of the Realm (Impressions) Defender of the Crown’s concept has been improvised and expanded upon mam times, hut some element always gets left out of the mix. Lords is the first to have it all: elaborate combat. Castle design and construction, resource management (including crop rotation), diplomacy, trade, work assignments and all handled very accessibly. Designers David Lester and Chris Foster have outdone themselves. This is easily the best game of its type on any platform. The only thing it lacks is a real advisor. (The end-of-vear reports are a bit thin.) (A). The level of ambition is impressive. By far the largest pure wargame ever attempted on the Amiga (almost 1 LG megabytes when decompressed onto hard disk), this simulation of It’s a war of the worlds in MicroProse UK’s UFO. Genghis Khan's campaigns in the period 1206-1259 aims high. I he full version, with a tactical display, requires a hard disk, ‘030 processor, and 3MB of RAM. (A "Junior'' version that runs from floppy and in 1 meg omits the tactical displays.) Then again, big does not necessarily mean good, and MC needs refinements to become truly playable. The almost constant redrawing of the handsome unit graphics on the tactical screens is irritating to the eye and awkward for gameplay. The game needs a proper manual, with fewer mathematical formulas and more "getting started” tutorials and advice. It needs hotkey access to commands, and a way to switch immediately to any commander. (The pure mouse interface sounds good until you’ve had to cycle through it a few limes in search of a Cl command.) The map needs a zoom function to bring the player in closer touch with the game world. While the atmospheric sound effects thunder, w ind, gurgling water do draw vou 7 O u D ; in, the small-print text messages and the commander markers feel too removed. It's like playing Ifom orbit. (D+). Fields of Glory (MicroProse UK) This is rather like playing with animated toy soldiers, and there’s both good and bad in that. MicroProse l.'K wisely hasn't n 4 made this re-creation of Napolean’s 1815 campaign too complicated. You pick the soldiers, tell them what to do and who to do it to (and in what formation), and they go off and do it. You can zoom in and watch the camions belch smoke and the corpses pile up. And it’s fun. For awhile. Con tut tied on p. 46. A Wow! Exquisite. A must for your games library* C Meets expectations. Good, solid performer, B Great fun. Plenty of entertainment value here. D Disappointing. Lots of room for improvement. F A real stinker. Don't waste your time. $ You may encounter some problems under this operating system and or require a PAL NTSC adapter.

However, the game’s basic simplicity may ultimately be its undoing. FOG is too narrow in scope (just six battles) and the thrill of battle isn't what it could be in part, I think, owing to the absence of a hidden-movement feature. You see all the opposing armies at all times. Where's the fun in that? (C+ B-). The Blue 8c the Gray and D-Day (Impressions) Designer Ed Grabowski has finally thrown over the out-dated
o engine he’s used in each of Impressions* tactical vvargames since Rorkc’s Rift, and created a strategic one for these Civil War and Western Front campaigns. 'They’re about as detailed as you could want, yet comparatively easy to play; having a closeup view of the battlefield onscreen helps enormously. However, wargames should be exciting, and in the tactical mode (which hasn't really changed) these are si ill kinda dull and laborious. (And could we have a few more manuals, please? D-Day’s got four, plus reference cards.) (C+). Campaign II (Empire) Campaign was a scarecrow of a tank game; the strategic version of Conqueror walked the walk and talked the talk, but it didn’t have much of a brain and was a little too ambitious for its own good always a deadly combo. Campaign II expands the concept (the six scenarios run up to the Gulf War), teaches the brain some tricks, and in the process comes significantly closer to the ultimate strategic tactical tank game. It’s still a bil overwhelming, but you'll get the hang of it. You’ll love viewing the battles from a helicopter! (B). Rise of the West (RAWEntertainment) Man oil man! Here’s what happens when a designer says, "What would Risk or Diplomacy he like with . . And acts on it. Rise is a nicely detailed 8-player hybrid of those two classics that relics on administration as well as warring over a wealth of scenarios (and the ability to build your own). Elements ol government, trade, and taxation are covered, and you'll even find other states launching their own campaigns. The only drawback is that the controls aren’t intuitive; you can’t just hoot and shoot. (This is definitely a take-the-manu- al-into-the- bathroom game.) But if you’re looking for something a little more lasting, this may be just the ticket. (B + ). ARMOUR-GEDDON II (PSYGNOSIS) This multiplatlorm sinuilalkm-cum-wargame started out a couple of years hack as an upgrade to the original AG, and turned into a full game. It maintains the original theme hopping between various polygonal craft (and developing new ones) while doing battle on a large, dcsert-ish map- this time in an effort to launch a space probe and destroy a satellite. L he funny thing is, it’s still basically an upgrade; the details may he different, blit the core game hasn’t changed that significantly. The improvements are welcome, though. The missions give a sense of structure. (In AG, it often felt as though you were playing in free-form.) The lively environment smoke in die air. Wreckage on the mound allows von to feel vou’re n o not alone. And it installs onto hard disk, where it loses AG's troublesome sense of fragility. This is Armour-Geddon done to n a “T.” Now. How about the real Armour-Geddon II? (B + ). Bravo Romeo Delta (RAWEntertainment) A worthwhile reprise ol the game Free Spirit brought out in '93. Don’t expect major changes; Texas publisher RAW has updated this graphically spartan hut information-rich World War li game (from the developer of Mongol Commander) with only minor hug fixes and AI tweaks. Unfortunately, it also adds a logistical goof; The substitution of the Commonwealth of Independent States for the USSR. Come now; I'd rather play an outdated game than an implausible one. (B-). Battle Field Creator (Software Society) It looks as though we won't he seeing Battle Isle II, but Germany’s Software Society has made sure we ll get the most out of the original game, the BI data disk, and Battle Isle ’93. Battle Field Creator is a hue tool for creating your own scenarios O j or editing the ones supplied will] the game. Prepared in cooperation with BI publisher Blue Byte, it allows you to build maps via a point-and-click interface similar to Bfs. But there's this one thing. The manual, and a fair amount of the in-program text, is in German. (The publisher is prepared to release an English-language version, hut doesn’t have a distributor here yet.) 11 you know the game system well, and don’t mind a challenge, it’s not as big a problem as you might think. (Like BI itself, the editor is largely intuitive.) II you don’t. . . Well, hang in there fora bit. Version 2.0 will support the History Line 1914-18 extension. (A-, provided you know German). Operation Combat II: by Land, Sea and Air (Merit) Outwardly, this latest offering in a long line of chess-like wargames from Scott Lamb isn't all that different from its predecessors: just new maps, new craft (the gunboats can go under bridges!) And new computer AF The computer’s a decent opponent, too, hut the real pleasure here is playing someone else via modem a feature that frequently isn't an option in Amiga games. A pleasant way to spend an hour or two. (B). Kingmaker (US Gold) I 've read a lot ol middling to had reviews of this re-creation of the War of the Roses, hut Kingmaker still managed to rub me the right way. Its only real plagues or portents are a general graphical ugliness, the absence of sound, and a few glitches in the interface. I liked most the wealth of online information sensibly presented, the detailed, sun-siruck battles, the game’s personality-based roots, and a sense ol luminous intelligence at its heart. There's something here, to he sure. (B-). Special Report: Soccer Games And baseball fans think they have it rough. One of the grim facts of a Eurocentric Amiga game market is that we’ve effectively had to endure a three-year computer baseball strike. (For the record, Lhe last Amiga baseball game was Domark Tengen’s horrifying RBI Baseball 2 in ’92.) ' Hey, these days, we’re lucky if we can play computer go f that doesn't involve a hunch of guys named Ian and Nigel. Everything's soccer. Little men in short pants knocking spotty white halls into nets with their heads, and keeping stats on it. Soccer and soccer management games seem to surface every other week in the UK, where I hear thev have a church for soccer worship. And the killer is that fully half of’em look like Sensible Soccer the tinv-plaver legend (affectionally known to the Brits as Sensi) that took this cottage industry' by storm in ‘92 and never let go. 1 lere’s a guide to the current crop that should keep you from getting trapped in the wrong nets: Sierra Soccer (Sierra) Significant partly as the second tangible representation of Sierra’s renewed interest in the Amiga, and in part as the first game in ages to give Sensible a run for its money . . . By looking a whole lot like Sensible. Why is having players the size o 'lemmings such a big deal? Or is that just it? (B+). ?

(B). Kick Off 3 (Anco) Dino Dini, widely celebrated as the author of the KO and
K. 02; and Anco, widely celebrated as their publisher, come to a parting of the ways. Dini does the very Kick OH'-ish Goal! For Virgin. Great game. Anco publishes the un-Kick Off-ish Kick Olf 3 by Steve Screech. Also a great game: Very atmospheric, with lovely sideview graphics and excellent controls. And one snag: Mr. Screech does not appear to be familiar with the ’030 processor. His game does not cooperate with it. I have to haul my G-Force accelerator out of its warm little home to run K03. Do you want to know what frame of mind that puts me in? (B + ). On the Ball: World Cup Edition (Ascon) The Patrician meets Premier Manager 3, with results that should fascinate any sports fan. Hiank goodness someone remembered that sports isn’t all stats and action. There’s media, attitude, scandal and a whole lot more, and OTB touches on it all in direct, yet gentle fashion that’s almost adventure-like. It’s still a management game, of course, and a superior one, but set in a sometimes distressingly real world, and that gives it top marks. League version in the works. (A), Empire Soccer ’94 (Empire) Stranger than arcade developer Graftgold (Fire & Ice, Urid- ium 2) doing a soccer game is the result: Absolutely the best- looking soccer game of the year. The players are these sharp, brawny guys who look like they escaped from an arcade-ad- venture, and when they move along the edge of the field, overhanging steel beams from the stadium move above them in parallax. It doesn’t have the best flow, and I’m not sure what the developer had in mind with all the cartoony caricatures. But you’ve probably never seen anything like it. (B). Premier Manager 3 (Gremlin Interactive) This is an amazing bit of coding. If it was for baseball, you’d have people buying Amigas just to play it. OK, it’s for soccer and only British soccer at that but PM3 is the sort of program that could make you get into the kick}’ sport. In your role as GM, you have responsibility for (and detailed access to) everything from sponsor advertising to player insurance to putting in new parking and floodlights all via a polished icon interlace. Who would have thought charts could look so good? (A). The Sensible World of Soccer (Renegade) Sensi’s still thriving. Renegade has updated it with a '93-94 edition, a World Champions version, and, just before Christmas, this new management game. It’s an interesting alternative to PM3 in that it’s far wider than it is deep, with more than 1500 teams and 26,000 real-life players from around the globe and that it lets you play as well as direct. Indeed, playing still seems to be the point; the management end barely gets a nod. But it’s as charming as ever. (B).

I would like to see a control for damping that direction reversal, for the current method is a bit too sudden for something like a bird's Might path. Wobbler and Wobbles Finally, there is Wobbler, which is intended to be used with bones to add an element of springiness to objects. An example would be to make the belly of a character bounce naturally as it walked. I he parameters for setting up Wobbler are simple and intuitive unlike the array of physics-based variables hidden behind them. This is perhaps my favorite module and a must for character animators. Working through the tutorials on these modules is not always painless. There are a few instances where files or objects referenced in the manual are not in the software. Moreover, the manuals for both volumes are somewhat sparse, lack indices, and suffer from quite a few grammatical errors. On the other hand, the utility these modules provide far outweighs their problems and shortcomings. If vou're a serious LightWave animator. .¦ o you'd do well to acquire these tools.

High-performance Amiga text editor. TurboText 2,0 is the long-awaited upgrade of one of the Amiga’s most powerful text editors. Written by former Commodore software engineer Martin Taillefer, I urboText (TFX) is a system-friendly and extremely configurable editor. 11X provides many of the text-ccliting features that Amiga users have come to expect: multiple documents that open at the same time, powerful commands to move within a document and between documents, cut and paste, search and replace, and so on. FTX’s default menu, keystroke, scrollbar, and mouse operations are intuitive and adhere to Com- modore's it ser- i n t erf ace gu i del i nes. Where TFX shines is in its configurability. Not only can you alter TTX’s screen mode, fonts, and colors to suit your needs, but you can totally redefine how TFX operates. You can configure any keystroke, menu item, or mouseclick to run your choice of 160'EFX commands, an Arexx script, or even another program. This feature has boosted TTX's popularity among programmers and power users. Moreover, TFX comes configured to emulate many other popular text editors. What’s New? Bv supporting Commodore's Display Database, FIN now opens its windows on the Workbench, any public screen, various custom screens, or third-party graphics- board displays. You can open windows simultaneously on multiple screens, with each window having its own menu and keystroke definitions. In addition, TFX now uses standard file requesters, ancl all confirmation requesters are clearly worded. Fix’s Find and Change commands now support AmigaDOS-style patterns for searches. Unfortunately, a leftover from FIN 1.03 remains: The f ind command misses the first character in the document when searching forward. For example, if the first word of a document is "Boing," and you search for “Boing” f rom the beginning of the document, TTX overlooks the “B" and won't find tlie word. Performance-wise, in tests with a 256K fik* in the RAM disk, 1 found that TFX
2. 0 loads files twice as fast and saves them 1.5 times as fast as ITX 1.03. Arexx performance has also been boosted, using a cache of macros held in memory. My 150-line Arexx test script executes %Y7c faster when cached. TFX's extensive manual now appears in AmigaCuide format and pops up with a press of the Help key. It's well written, cross-referenced, and has a detailed list ol the changes made since version 1.03, Speaking of changes, there are far too many for me to describe in this review, but I'll list a few more: new Arexx commands, options, ancl scripts; several new tooltypes and startup options; built-in mouse blanker; ability to load and save PC and Macintosh files; warnings when you load a file twice; and a greatly expanded Preferences utilitv. Sullice it to say that this is a major upgrade. Some Bugs I had a few minor problems with ITX
2. 0. .After installation, it refused to run until I rebooted. Also, tlie Picasso II graphic board’s ChangeScreen program has a bug that prevents TTX from changing its screen mode interactively. (Oxxi and VillageTronic are aware of tlie problem and are working on fixes.) ITX now keeps its macros in TURBOTEXT: Rexx instead of Rexx:, so you may need to modify your TFX 1.03 definition files to provide the full pathnames of your macros. One unfortunate omission is that, because of time constraints, TTX 2.0 does not yet support the promised multiple undo feature. TTX 2.0 is an excellent product. Easy to use in its most basic configuration, it emulates other editors, and its confic- o in ability promises to win many fans. Tlie few problems it has are minor. For twenty bucks, the upgrade is a steal, ancl even at full price, it's a worthwhile program to own. I recommended it highly. Dan Barrett On the Ball Oregon Research, S39.95 All Amigas.

Personal information manager. I try lo keep most of my life's schedule in my head, but appointments, vacations, and frequent interruptions sometimes make it tough to remember everything. A personal-information-manager program such as On the Ball (OTB) can make matters easier. Beginning life as a freely distributable shareware package, this latest version (1.30) lets your Amiga assist you to plan your days more efficiently ancl keep track of pending appointments and schedule changes. On Schedule Coming as a single-disk package that includes a 60-page manual, OTB is small by any standards. The program includes an installer, but not the standard Commodore one. Upon completion of the installation process, a calendar appears on the screen with today’s date highlighted and the current time at the top. This same a tie ndar then pops up whenever you boot your Amiga. Using the calendar is straightforward. Double-click a day, and an appointment interface appears. Eiglu oval buttons on ?

Start- and end- time buttons at the bottom of the interlace let vou adjust times. When vou have t -.M an entry set to a specified time, the screen flashes when that time arrives. The bottom of the interface is where you’ll find the major parts of the program: four buttons that control the Appointments, Addressbook, To-Do List, and tlie Notepad. Selecting the Appointments option lets you type a note in the Note: window, select a time and dale, then use the Add button to save the note. Another button at the bottom right ol' the screen allows you to select how often the appointment will occur, cycling through options such as daily, biweekly, monthly, and so on. Lot* repeated appointments, t here’s also a button you can select for each dav ol the week. I Selecting the Addressbook brings up 26 new buttons, one for each letter of the alphabet. In the Name Held, you make entries in a lirst name last name format, and they’re automatically alphabetized bv last name as they’re added to * the data file. An Arexx interface makes adding names and addresses easv if they already exist in another format, such as Sbase, on your hard disk. Examples are included in the manual to expedite the importing process. More Buttons, More Options The third button is the To-Do List, whic h differs from the Appointment option in that it displays a new cycling w indow. Within this window you can select a month, day, time, and year for daily
* 4 i tasks. A Note window beside it allows vou to enter a note. As with the other options, the Add. Delete, Update and Search buttons stay active for manipulating tlie entries. Notes are saved and displayed in alphabetical order. The final button on the bottom of the interface is the Notepad option, which brings up a new window with a list of notes. This option uses AmigalX )S file requesters to access files a nice touch. The Notepad acts as a mini text editor, allowing you to search and replace, and to cut, copy, and paste with aplomb. Vou save notes simply by closing the note’s window. Shortcomings The Notepad worked fine on my OS2.1- equipped A2000 030, loading and saving all manner of notes created with various word processors and saved as ascii text files (including AniigaGuide text files). Such was not the case with my A4000 040 running under OSS. 1. When used as a text editor, the Notepad stated the message “Incompatible Save File” at even- attempt. I could, however, create new notes using the Add button option, which read in and saved all file- types on both machines. While you can select from five different languages, when switching hack to English. The option changes from “Change Taal” and won’t change hack. Finally, the worst hug is in the Merge File option under Appointments. Again, with the A4000 operating under OSS. I, if you try to merge an existing file whose illetype is incompatible, the program freezes. Minor problems aside, On the Ball
1. 30 is a solid performer, with faults that seem to appear only under OS3.1. With years of development, it has stood the test of time quite well.

Prices subject to chan Tim deals with questions concerning the A500, the Internet, upgrading to a 68010, and an HELP KEY BY TIM WALSH A2090 problem. AGA FOR THE A500 Q; I've equipped my Amiga 5(1(1 with a Supra Ram 500IIX, and I'd like (to answer to a technical quest ton. Is it possible to do AGA graphics on lhe A500? Also. Sys nfo tests indicate that the Supra Ram 500 1. Y offers a Zorro II slot. Since some graphics cards Jit into a Zorro II slot, wouldn't an adapter let the A500 use a graphics board to view AGA graphics? I've seen some recent developments for the A500 (MI'EC 68020 68881 hoard) (hat 'convert" the A 500 into an A1200 (CPU). Is there a lateral option of upgrading to the equivalent of an A1200? Owen Marlowe s irus(q lug 12. Metrohhs. Com
A. As far as displaying AGA graphics on lhe A”)00, I've never actually seen any products that would allow for it. First, you'd need some way to reproduce memory-intensive HAMS mode, oiler all ofAGA’s RGB output modes, and support AmigaDOS 3.x. Even if all this were possible, in all likelihood the A500 would be so slow as to be useless. The architecture of the A500’s 16-bit data bus and the Amiga’s original chip-set design does not lend itself to high-speed movement of data. While the SupraRAM 500UX may appear revolutionary in iis ability to add a Zorro II slot to the A500, it’s really nothing new. A number of products from ICD and CeV Design were designed to do the same thing (see "Help Key.” May ’93). Amiga on the Internet Q, Gan you tell me where I can pick up Amiga software on the Internet? Do you know ij Opal I ision has an address ? They are the hardest people to get in touch with, but you probably already know that. Also, how can I unzip some of those zipped files on the Internet? Carlos Gutierrez cgatienGa badla nds. XoDak.edu
A. The best source of information is in the Usenet Amiga newsgroups. From within the Internet, search fur newsgroups using the keyword “Amiga” (without the quotes, of course), and numerous newsgroups will appear. An easier way is to get a Portal account. It’s the only commercial network that offers all the messages from the Amiga- related newsgroups in several, easy-to- access menus. 1 have several ways of accessing newsgroups, but I routinely use Portal to read the Usenet messages because it's lhe fastest and most convenient way I’ve found yet. 1 lie Opal Vision video processor is manufactured and distributed by Centaur Development (PO Box 3939, Torrance, CA 90510, 310 7 S7-4530). No e-mail address is listed for the company. Finally, there are several utilities available for zipping and unzipping files. You need to get a copy of PKAZip, which is the Amiga version of PKZip. You'll find it in numerous online locations. Koran unzipping- only utility, get a copy of UnZip 5.11), a freely distributable collection of unzipping utilities for the Amiga. The 68010 Question
Q. Eve heard it's possible to replace a 68000 microprocessor with a 680JO. However; does a small amount of incompatibility arise with such an upgrade? How can I avoid or fix these incompatibilities? I own an A2000 with AmigaDOS 2.1. and it is equipped with an old GI P Series II hardenrd. Xavier Messersmith xca liber (a colon.com
A. Since the price of the 68010 is low and it’s a plug-in replacement for the socketed 68000, this is one of the most cost-effective upgrades for the unaccelerated A500 A2000. Years ago, when the 68010 was first introduced, software incompatibility was a problem because programs (especially games) were sensitive to an accelerated svstem. Such problems were cleared up years ago, but the mvth still endures 4 il that the 68010 causes incompatibility problems. In a worst-case scenario, problems may surface, but generally only with older games. O SCSI Device Transplant
Q. I have an A2000 equipped with three hard drives. The first is an A2090 hard-disk controller and 20MB Quantum that serve as the boot partition. The second is a G rP Impact II that controls a 20MB SCSI. The third is a 105MB IDE, controlled by a Golden Gate 386 board. Em having difficulties with I)KB's Power XL drive. Rarely can the Golden Gate emulator recognize it as the A: floppy drive. These problems seem to occur whenever 1 place a high-density disk in the drive it simply returns the error message “Unable to read sector." Any recommendations on a replacement drive could get?
A. 13. Miller Cape May, New Jersey
A. I don’t think you need to spring for a replacement to the Power XL, but you could do two things right away: First, gel a replacement for the A2090, and, second, upgrade the operating system to AmigaDOS 2.x or later, which simply involves replacing die Kickstart chip and installing new system software. The A2090 hard-disk controller, notorious for causing problems, could be interfering with proper operation of the other drives. A good replacement would be an A2091 or one of the many new hard-disk controllers. 11 the PC side of the system continues to have difficulty reading high- density disks from the Power XL, J 1 there are other options. With AmigaDOS 2.1 in place, you could run a miliiv such as CrossDOS, read in high- i 1 O density floppy disks using the Power XL on the Amiga side, and copy their contents to one of the hard drives. ¦ We are YOUR Raptor, Video Toaster and NewTek Flyer Resource!

I just finished rending Sheldon Leemon's articles in November's I w py - n World, and I want to express iny gratitude for two pieces that were both informative and interesting to an Amiga novice such as myself- I do, however, have some animation experience with both Macintosh and Silicon Graphics (Alias) programs, and 1 found the terminology similar, and often the same. So what prompted this Amiga virgin to pick up a copy of AmigaWorhE Next fall III he attending a school where the only computei'-animalion offerings utilize the V ideo Toaster, and I want to get as familiar as possible with the system beforehand- Unfortunately, I cannot find a bookstore that carries texts on Amigas or the Video Toaster. I would appreciate any suggestions as to sources of information. With the Amiga's current situation. I'm concerned that there will be even fewer resources available by the time 1 start school next fall. Tow Keegan Jersey City, New Jersey Chech out pp. 19-20 in the article “Help Lines!" In this issue. Eds. I want to thank Sheldon Leemon for his article, “Toasterman’s Tips for Mastering the Video Toaster,” in the November A miga World. It helped me more than anvthine else I’ve read on 4 O the subject so far. Right now, Pm finding that the learning curve is I'airlv
o n j steep- I've just recently purchased the Amiga -1000 and (he Video Toaster. Desmond Crooks SpringfiehU Oregon Where Credit Is Due? In the December 2nd issue of Entertainment Weekly, there is an article that describes how all die dazzling special effects produced for the show Babylon 5 are “generated in several ordinary cj Macintosh computers.” Is ibis true? I thought Amigas were the computers generating all those special effects. Is Mac getting all the Amiga’s credit? Eric T. Anklin I ecu mseh, Aiieh igan Seems like they hove it wrong. Were contacting Ewto get an explanation and also notilying the show's creators. Eds Overlooked Again! I am the proud, proud owner of an Amiga 2500 and will remain forever loyal to the Amiga dynasty. My father and brother each own a 48hdx-2 computer, and they subscribe to their own computer magazines, which 1 glance at There are thousands of us guys who really want to continue the Amiga tradition and are willing to buy another machine. To see what's new. In one issue of PC Magazine (Dec. 20, ’94) I read an article that contained a picturegniph ol the 20-year history of the personal computer. I agreed with what they had to say in die article, but they forgot something: They forgot to include the Amiga in their timeline! Now there's nothing wrong with showing how far we’ve come, hut hey! The Amiga is a PC (i.e., personal computer). EC Magazine seems to have forgotten this. If there are other Amiga users out there who are as insulted as 1 am, write to PC Magazine and tell them to recognize the Amiga. You might also write to your local IV stations and tell them to support die little machine that is producing most of their high-end graphics at little cost. Tim Samuels Cambria Ileighls, New York Don’t Neglect Us
vl. 3 Guys I have to agree with Gary Poole’s letter in vour December issue: T he new builders of the Amiga machine would he wise to heed the voices of past devoted users. The main issue is building a machine that will still respect the vl.3 Workbench environment. There are thousands of us guys who really want to continue the Amiga tradition and are willing to buv another machine. But we u J also want to be able to take along our existing software (which is another reason why we love our Amigas). So, new Amiga-builder dudes, don’t forget us, because when it comes time to help gel the new machine off the ground if the environment is right 0 n you can definitely count on us. Richard Rayner Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada Visions of an Amiga World 1 just wanted to thank you for your Amiga-Updatc line. Hopefully, this mess will be cleared up soon, and the Amiga will be hack with a vengeance. If' only the new owners will advertise and let people know about the world’s best- kept computer secret . They also should let people know about all the “Amiga firsts" as listed in your January issue (p. 14,) and all of the IV shows and movies that are done with the Amiga. Just think what a wonderful world it would be if the Amiga ruled! A friend of mine who had never seen an Amiga came over and saw my A3000, and he can’t wait to get rid of his IBM compatible and buy an Amiga 4000.
