"EasyPlayer" is a configurable GUI for all shell based music players. Be it "mpega", "SIDPLAY" or "GMPlay" or any recently released shell-based player - with "EasyPlayer", you get a unified interface with playlist (load, save, append, shuffle...) and all eytras. It's a totally free software ("open source" style).
You will be able to get EasyPlayer form Aminet soon, or at the title link. (ps) (Translation: unk)

Eyelight development
Jochen Abitz writes:
Mage for AmigaPPC has been canceled. :(
Eyelight has released a demo of Gamma on their website: www.eyelight-it.com. The development has been put on hold, and will only be continued if 500 people preorder Gamma.
Here's the original text from the demo:
Gamedemo for CGX3Drave, (c)1999 Eyelight
This is a rather old "game-like" demo for CGX3Drave that showed off the basics of Gamma, the 3D games construction kit from Eyelight. It requires a CVPPC since the software engine we developed for CGX3D rave is not available to the public.
Being completly unoptimized and running on 68K only, it still shows off nicely what could have been possible with Gamma. Source code (in C but is actually a direct translation from Golem, Eyelight's scripting language used in Tornado3D) that creates the whole game is provided. As you can see it is rather simple, and the scripting environment made Gamma easy to use even for people with no 3D graphics programming experience.
Unfortunately Gamma has been canceled for the Amiga, due to the many shakes the market suffered. If there is enough interest and at least 500 Amigans pre-order Gamma for as low as 50.00 EURO/ US Dollars, we'll still produce it both in 68K and PPC versions.

Petro Seen In "Neues" On 3sat
On Monday in the evening Petro Tyschtschenko gave a short interview about the MCC not to be released. The interviewer asked what kind of strange game is played by Amiga Inc. in the USA. Petro explained that the current developement was a surprise for him too. He coorperated with Jim Collas very good and didn't have a doubt that the MCC is going to be released. But he got used to surprises and stress situations, how everyone knows and this he will master the situation again. The interviewer: "This means to cry about our old, beloved Amiga again." Everyone who wants to see the interview again can watch the rerun on Saturday, the 2nd of October at 2.00 pm. (ps) (Translation: unk)

KATO
We support the attempt of Mr. Grabbe, who suggested a new, useful Amiga hardware. This suggestion isn't new, but after the planless acting of AI, where even 5 years after CBMs bankrupt nothing happened (hardware), nonetheless actual. The big problem, which prevented us from integrating the Amiga into a standarized platform via slot card until now, is the problem with the drivers for plugin cards and on-board hardware. In the opposite to the name owners, who constantly states he doesnt need third party developers, we know that they cant make it on their own. Another problem is the Amiga Community, which can only be filled with enthusiasm for completly illusoric projects. Its not practical to try to compete with SGI, Sony or Apple, which are calculating millions of sold systems. Otherwise homecomputermainboards are classified to be useful enough to use modern RISC CPUs. The result are the well known "impotent" tower solutions. CPU top....envoirement flop. If there should be amiga developers, which dont want just want to tap money, they should use standard hardware. In the first point this would be a usual mainboard (Athlon/AlphaII) or a PPC-mainboard (IBM/MOT). Katodev has access to a bridge, which is used as adapter to use cards,build for 030 Macs, in PCI machines. The license fees should be really low. This would be a basis for a minimal Amiga mainboard without CPU, something a british company was unable to do. Amiga-floppy and sound would be 100 % compatible, the 68k would get emulated, for example via UAE, which is ,with a decent CPU, already fast enough. Everyone who wants cooperate with us, and Mr. Grabbe, should contact us. There are no detailed infos or product-announcements for end-user. (ps) (Translation: unk)
