AmigaOS 4: Update von Frozen Bubble
Frozen Bubble (Screenshot) ist ein Klon des Arcade-Klassikers Puzzle Bobble. Das Update soll einige kleinere Probleme beseitigen, die von den Anwendern gemeldet wurden:
  • relink against older SDL, music and sound problems fixed
  • increased sound buffer size to 4096 as recomended by toaks
  • found a few more instances of $ENV{HOME} replaced them with /bubbles
  • added a timidity config to stop SDL from looking for it in /usr/local/lib. I suspect though that it's not actually used.

AROS: GTK-MUI-Wrapper in die Nightly Builds aufgenommen
Nachdem alle in der Team AROS-Bounty-Beschreibung #30 geforderten Funktionen im GTK-MUI-Wrapper implementiert sind und die aktuelle Version nach Ansicht der Entwickler so stabil ist, dass alle GTK-Beispiele im CVS funktionieren, wurde von Jack Patton ein Snapshot des Quellkodes in die Contrib-Sources von AROS importiert. Damit ist GTK-MUI ab jetzt in den täglichen Versionen von AROS enthalten (Nightly Builds).

Weitere Pläne für die (nahe) Zukunft sind die Integration möglichst vieler GLib-Funktionen und, soweit möglich, die Verwendung der originalen Header-Dateien. Für MorphOS wird es von Ilkka Lehtoranta eine dynamische Bibliothek geben (gtkmuippc.library). (snx)

Das Ende von VirusExecutor
Jan Erik Olausen hat das Ende von VirusExecutor proklamiert. Die Anti-Viren-Software für das Classic AmigaOS wird damit nicht mehr aktualisiert. Dies teilte das Virus Help Team mit und dankte dem Dänen für sein Engagement in den zurück liegenden Jahren.

Olausen war unter anderem auch für die xvs.library mitverantwortlich, eine Bibliothek, mit der sich Virendefinitionen in externer Software bearbeiten lässt. Damit bleibt auch der VirusExecutor auf einem aktuellen Stand und kann auch zukünftig eingesetzt werden. Die xvs.library ist von der Einstellung des VirusExecutor ausdrücklich nicht betroffen. (nba)

Editor's Thoughts and Introduction:
 Congratulations to the Amiga community - we have survived another 
year! While it has been a busy and fulfilling year in many ways, we 
still have no final release of Amiga OS 4.0 to celebrate. However, 
there has been some interesting information regarding that topic which 
came to light recently. 
 On December 28, an IRC session was conducted with representatives of 
Hyperion by the good folks at AmigaWorld.net. This information 
provided by Hyperion and taken from one of the session transcripts 
should be of interest to all Amigans eager for a full release version 
of OS4:

"Rogue: As you have probably already guessed, there will be no OS 4 
release this year. There are reasons for that which I would like to 
explain. The main reason is the unavailability of hardware. As you all 
know, AmigaOne's [sic] are not available right now, so we are not in a 
position to offer an OS 4 with a matching hardware. We DO think that 
once we release AmigaOS4.0, there will be a general interest in the 
news, in media, etc. We will get a lot of interest from people outside 
the amiga market, and they will ask where they can buy it. If we tell 
them they cannot buy it right now and need to wait until the hardware 
is available, then this will take away a lot of momentum that the 
release will generate. Hence we decided to postpone the release until 
such time as a hardware platform IS available."

 You can read the entire set of transcripts at www.amigaworld.net.
 Let's hope the situation with hardware availability can be set right 
soon. What a great event for the new year it would be if we could see 
the release, finally, of OS4!
 Happy New Year to all our readers where ever you are, and good Amiga 
computing to you as well!
 Brad Webb,
 Editor

 20 December, 2005

The best news at the beginning: E3B and individual Computers continue 
selling hardware in the EU. We want to thank everyone who sent us 
eMails with suggestions, mostly trying to circumvent the new law, but 
also with information on how to start a company in another country. 
Unfortunately, all this doesn't help, because the law also applies to 
companies outside Germany who want to sell their products in Germany.

To fully comply with the law, E3B and individual Computers founded the 
label "ConBridge" which is now registered with the Stiftung EAR, 
despite legal problems that are not fully resolved. Read more on the 
common webseite www.conbridge.de (German language only).

New advertising partner

We have supported the "Amiga plus" magazine for a long time with our 
adverts. Since the Amiga plus is not available any more, we have been 
looking for a new magazine with the same high quality of articles. 
What we found is the Austrian magazine Lotek 64: It's made by 
enthusiastic hobbyists, and stands any comparison with high-standard 
professional journals. You can either read the magazine online for 
free, or you can make a donation and have the mag sent to you in 
printed form. The magazine is in German language only.

For the current december-issue we want to point out an article by 
Dr. Rainer Buchty, which deals with the technology of the C64-DTV2. 
The Commodore 64 in a joystick is also known as "PAL-DTV", and is 
derived from the C-One. However, individual Computers was not involved 
in the DTV project, so our high production standards were not applied. 
The article describes how you can correct the low (nearly unreadable) 
colour contrast with a little skill and a soldering iron.

31 December, 2005 

Screenshots of the current version:
http://tamar.4players.de/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=6717

The first step towards the new 3D map has been made! Tales of Tamar
can now run at a higher resolution and give the project a whole new
look, thanks to a new GUI and handling.
Instead of the old 640x480, the program can now run in 1024x768 in 16,
24 or 32 bit.

Rewriting took over three months and we hit the boundaries of the
different Amiga models several times. Bugs in the graphics drivers,
lacking performance and missing features like actual double-buffering,
just to mention a few.

But now it is done, and we are proud to present this pearl to a wider
audience. As always, we release these new features on the Amiga first.

The whole ToT team wishes you a Happy New Year. May the Amiga stay
with us for years to come, in one form or another.

About the project:

We are looking for 30 active beta testers to test the new features on
different Amiga systems. Testers play for free and only need to bring
enough time and motivation to find and report bugs.

In order to continue to the next step, the actual 3D map, the new and
updated client needs to be thoroughly tested to find and fix as many 
bugs as possible. We depend on the help of the community for this. 
Let's build a solid foundation for the ongoing development of the 
client for the Amiga!

The features:

- 640*480/8bit and 1024*768/16/24/32 bit support
- OS4 support
- MOS support
- Amithlon support
- UAE support
- PPC support
- CD, Paula & AHI support
- animated weapons, armor, goods and buildings in 8/16/24/32 bit
- figure animation in 8/16/24/32 bit
- more than 30 screens
- massively multiplayer strategy via email or TCP/IP
- multiple language support
- multi platform (Amiga, PC, Mac, Linux, Browser, Java)
- online chat
- 8 minute animated intro

Here are the new screenshots:

Greetings,
Your ToT team

Tales of Tamar is a turn based, massively multiplayer strategy game
similar to Kaiser or Civilization and is being developed by Eternity.

A Demo version (over 200 MB) from the game found you on the next 
CoverCD (58) from the Amiga Future and on the Info/Update/Demo CD from 
APC&TCP.

With Desert Racing of Bardos we'll show you a racing game that you 
have never seen on the Amiga before. Use different components for your 
car depending on your money, drive through amazing animated landscapes 
and bring your AGA Amiga to boil. In the single or multiplayer modes 
you'll not only have the possibilty of tuning the performance but also 
other things...

We take the meaning of tuning very strict because the you will need 
the different weapon systems to succeed in the dirty desert races.

To get into the pleasure of Desert Racing of Bardos your Amiga has to 
be equipped with an AGA chipset or a graphicsboard. A 68030/25 is 
minimum. 1,5MB ChipRAM and 28MB FastRAM are the requirements but more 
is always better.

Get Desert Racing of Bardos and experience an exiting arcade racing 
game without getting envious of the PC world....

System requirements:

Minimum: Amiga with AGA or graphicsboard, 68030 CPU, 2MB of ChipRAM 
and 32MB of FastRAM, harddrive, CD-ROM drive A better CPU is 
recommended.

      A PC computer, a rather fast one. At least 256MB of RAM is 
recommended (otherwise decrease the RAM size in WinUAE config). AmiKit 
was created on AthlonXP 2500+ where the boot process of AmiKit takes 
about 12 seconds (or 10 seconds more with unregistered Directory Opus 
Magellan II, see limitations). I've also tried an AthlonXP 1800 and 
the speed of AmiKit was still acceptable.
    *
      Gfx card capable of displaying 32bit screenmodes.

PC software:

      WinUAE, the Windows port of the UAE Amiga Emulator. Version 
1.1.1 is already included in AmiKit package, however if a newer 
version is found in your system, AmiKit will automatically use it.

Amiga software:

    *
      The source of AmigaOS3.x system files. AmiKit installation 
archive DOES NOT contain any copyrighted Amiga system files because 
AmigaOS3.x is still available (fortunately!). These system files will 
be copied from the original CD to AmiKit during the installation 
procedure. Come on, support the Amiga and buy the CD, if you haven't 
done so yet!
    *
      AmigaOS ROM file (v3.1). You can obtain this from your real 
Amiga with the help of ROM ripper/grabber software (see Aminet). 
Another possibility is to buy the Amiga Forever package which includes 
the ROM file.

Video podcasts come to the Amiga with AmiPodder 1.4! With the release 
of iTunes 6 and the new iPod video many podcasters are including video 
clips in their podcast feeds. AmiPodder now recognises video episodes 
and can play them back in the video player of your choice (MPlayer and 
Frogger have been tested, not all video podcasts will play on Amiga 
players due to the codecs used). If you have a portable device capable 
of playing video, AmiPodder can sync the movies to it too.



Also in version 1.4 are a number of improvements and bug fixes 
including:

* Option to prompt for the sync directory making it easier to use 
AmiPodder with multiple portable players or players using removeable 
media cards.

* New status of "Played", so if you use AmiPodder as a "jukebox" you 
can see what podcasts you've already listened to.

* File name length limitation, handy if your Amiga filesystem or music 
player only accepts short filenames.

* Many more changes.

AmiPodder 1.4 is freeware and runs on OS 3.x, OS 4 and MorphOS.

lot of new config options, new and fixed hotkeys.

BackUp v1.44 - (68k) Backup program that mirrors a directory 
structure. BackUp no longer creates empty directories for dirs in the 
skiplist. Better CLI support. Fixed a possible crash when pausing a 
backup process.

cgx_vmem_scale video modes and the new SIL devices to VCD/DVD 
choosers.

Grafikkartentreiber: CyberGraphX 4.3 RC 6
Das Grafikkartentreibersystem CyberGraphX liegt inzwischen in der Version 4.3 RC 6 vor. Das Update ermöglicht es CyberGraphX 4-Nutzern, die Treiber für die Grafikkarten CyberVision 3D, CyberVision 64 und Picasso IV auf Dual-Boot-Systemen unter MorphOS zu verwenden.

Getestet wurden die genannten Karten unter PowerUp-MorphOS 1.4.5 auf einem Amiga 4000T mit CyberstormPPC-Karte. Weitere Treiber könnten ebenfalls funktionieren.

Bitte beachten Sie, dass MorphOS 1.4.5 eine fehlerhafte Version der Datei hal.com1 enthält, welche bei CyberVision 3D-Karten im Zorro III-Modus Probleme bereitet. Sollten Sie eine solche Karte mit MorphOS verwenden wollen, ersetzen Sie bitte die genannte Datei im Verzeichnis "roms" durch die neuere Version. Dieser Dateiaustausch ist jedoch ausdrücklich nur dann erforderlich, wenn Sie eine CyberVision 3D unter MorphOS 1.4.5 benutzen wollen.

MorphOS: PowerTerm.mcc 50.60
Direkt vom Südpol sendet Jacek 'jacadcaps' Piszczek ein Update der MUI-Klasse PowerTerm.mcc für MUICON/SSHCON.

Das Archiv ist unter dem Titellink verfügbar. Darüber hinaus kündigt der Autor Versionen von PowerTerm sowie anschließend MUICON auch für Mac OS X an.

Changes since the previous release (50.55):
  • 50.56: Huge changes in the class' structure. Adapted large parts of the terminal emulation to work on Mac OS X. Tweaked to use libmosutil (os-independant tags/pools support lib)
  • 50.57: Added ESC[Z, ESC[I, fixed the table stops generator, reworked vt_nexttabstop to move the cursor and handle forward wrap, implemented vt_prevtabstop. More work on the ATSUI rendering engine for OSX. Implemented vta_renderline, vta_renderlinepart, vta_refresh, vta_render
  • 50.58: Fixed tabs (tab forward should not wrap!), impelemented scroll left/right escape sequences (ESC[ P, ESC[ @), fixed vt_getesccode not to get confused by the @ code
  • 50.59: Added an OSX PowerTermScroll class, the OSX port can handle a NSScroller object now. A lot of work in the ATSUI renderer, enabled font matching to allow all possible unicode characters, write method, some work on delayed refreshing. More rendering code - added marking display, finished most of the render sections
  • 50.60: OSX vt_scrollto, vt_postwrite and companions, Cocoa PTerm begins to get functional
