AmigaOS 4: preliminary version of Amaya 8.8.4 for X-Window
A preliminary version of the web editor Amaya by Edgar Schwan was published in the OS4 depot. The programme is able to show CSS based pages correctly. Frames and Javascript are however not supported.

Amaya needs the X11 Window package "Cygnix" (amiga-news.de reported) to run, which is to be foung in the OS4 depot as well. You will find help for concerning the installation as well as further information in the readmefile.

The programme is already running relatively stable, the connection to the internet is however not yet working. As Amaya is primarily an editor, the Amaya porting as an GUI based web editor should nevertheless be interesting.

DVD: "Digital Memories" - remembering the C64 scene
Press release:  What started with pirate copies during the home computer pioneer time became the first digital youth culture. To achieve the fame of the scene for the fastest "crack" of a computer game, freaks set home made intros in front of the games before they released them to the school yards and mailboxes of the 80s.

Those digital cards became an art form on their own; to be able to master it programming knowledge and audio-visual talent was required. The non-professional programmers and other crackers bettered each other in international competition with adventurous animations and unheard sounds.

Demos are music videos without dancers, without a backdrop and without a camera: the clips run in real-time, often they bring CPU and graphic chips to their technological limits. The most talented programmers and freaks made the impossible possible on the cult computer Commodore 64.

'Digital Memories' is a selection of the best demos for the C64, an exciting retro trip through the colourful, virtual world of FX, bleeps and pixel - multimedia of the first generation.

Content of the DVD:
  • 16 C64 demos
  • Slideshow with 140 scene graphics
  • 15 original SID sounds
  • Eastergeggs
  • Bonus: 4 C64 games: Turrican 3, It's Magic, Metal Warrior 4, Crush

ISBN: 3-9810494-7-0
Price: 9,95 Euro (cg) (Translation: iw)

New C64 cartridge cases, special prices for clockport-hardware
Press release:  Our cartridge cases for Retro Replay, MMC64 and other standard C64 cartridges enjoy great popularity, therefore we have made a new production run with a few improvements. The cases that we delivered previously were made out of the fairly soft plastic polystyrene. To further improve the quality and stability of dimensions under extreme climatic conditions, we decided to use the harder plastic polycarbonate. In addition to the known colours black, blue-transparent and clear-transparent, the new colours red-transparent and solid blue are now available. Even though polycarbonate is much more expensive than polystyrene, we did not raise the sales price. We even took away the price difference for the different colours, so each case is now 4,- EUR incl. 16% VAT (plus shipment cost, please inquire by eMail). There's only two quantity scales: The single price for purchases of up to 99 units, and 15% discount for orders of 100 units or more. Colours can be mixed in order to reach the quantity scale.

The cases are closed with only one opening for the cartridge connector. If a cartridge with buttons or a pass-through slot shall be used, the holes/openings must be cut into the case. This applies to both the Retro Replay and the MMC64.

Picture: various case variants

If you order the bundle with Retro Replay and RR-Net, you can now choose from these case colours. Wordwide shipment is already included in the bundle price of 100,- EUR for the three items!

Special prices for clockport-hardware

Many products for the Amiga are only made for the clockport of the A1200 for economy reasons. Individual Computers has been shipping Zorro cards with an additional expansion port for many years. This expansion port is compatible with the A1200 clockport, but at the same time has a much better performance. Especially for Zorro-systems (so-called "bigbox-Amigas"), we're now offering a bundle with our ISDN-card ISDN-Surfer, which also features a clockport. For the "smaller" Amigas A500 and A1000 we have the clockport adapter for the CPU-socket. Please bear in mind that both the Delfina and the Subway USB-card by E3B require a 68020 or higher processor. All bundles include 16% VAT and worldwide/international shipping!

ISDN Surfer with Subway USB card and Poseidon V3: 100,- EUR
ISDN Surfer with Delfina soundcard: 150,- EUR
A500 clockport adapter with Subway USB card and Poseidon V3: 100,- EUR
A500 clockport adapter with Delfina soundcard: 150,- EUR

Please use our contact form for ordering. (cg) (Translation: cg)
