AmigaOS 4: TiMidity 0.6
TiMidity is a program for the playback and conversion of MIDI files. The changes and improvements in the newest version affect, above all, the stability. Furthermore, play-back without the user interface, from the shell, was integrated, which allows for the play-back of MIDI files in the background. In addition, the archive now contains a short tutorial by Hubert Maier, which explains the integration of TiMidity with AWeb. (cg) (Translation: cad)

AmigaOne: Sigmatel STAC9752T sound chips available
Costel Mincea, who initiated a centralised buying for the onboard sound chips initially used in the AmigaOne but erroneously left off in later production runs, has 70 Sigmatel STAC9752T sound chips available now.

Mincea distributed his expenses (the price for the chips, shipping to him, duty fees) on the number of chips available, which results in a price per unit of slightly more than four Euro. Therefore, a single chip can be ordered from him for four Euro plus shipping (depends on target location, 1,- Euro for Europe).

Users can now order chips by emailing sigmatel@stackswap.net, specifying the desired quantity and the delivery address. The reply will confirm the order and specify payment details. Orders will be processed "first come, first serve", the available stock is limited to 70 units. (cg) (Translation: cg)

Think game: new Sudoku port
A further Sudoku port for the Amiga was done by Ralf Berg. Next to the normal 9er Sudoku are smaller (4er) and larger (16er) variationsposible. Skins are supported.

Further features:
  • loading, saving and printing of fields
  • generating of own fields (solver exists)
  • displayed in a window on the Workbench or with own screen
  • usage of datatypes for graphics and sound output
  • runs on all Amigas with AmigaOS 3.0+
The author points out that not all features are implemented yet. E.g. is the highscore list still missing. Furthermore he's looking for designers and musicians to enhance the game.

In the Japanese numbers puzzle Sudoku is a square divided in 3×3 subsquares with each containing again 3×3 fields. Some of these 81 fields show already numbers from 1 to 9. For a riddle's completion every row, every columnand each of the nine blocks may contain each number from 1 to 9 just once. (snx) (Translation: wk)
