Amiga Arena: "Uropa˛ HD" full version
With permission by Stephen Smith (Austex Software) the Amiga Arena makes the download of the full version of Uropa˛ (shareware version 2.0) available. Uropa˛ is a game based on isometric 3D graphics and lightsource vector graphics. The plot takes place on the moon of Uropa. Fight the evil Kapones and find their leading head that is responsible for their acts!

Available for download is the Aminet version of Uropa˛ as well as the Amiga Arena archive with the keyfile, German guide and catalogue files.

Hint: Exclusively can the Final Uropa˛ CD version 3.0, distributed by Vulcan Software, be found as full version on the Amiga Future readers CD 33.

Exclusive II: For all owners of the orginal CD are all Final Updates for Uropa˛ available for download, too! Including a new intaller for the CD version by Stephen Smith.

Special thanks go to Stephen Smith for the support as well as to Gerd F., who made the shareware version available. Enjoy one more commercial full version! With the best wishes from the Amiga Arena!

Next to Uropa˛ there are more commercial games available for free and legal download like Burnout, Blade and The Prophet. (ps) (Translation: wk)

Bernie Meyer (email) now online with information

As there seems to be the need for it I have gathered some information on and made downloads available. In particular there are:
  • a detailed guide how to boot Amithlon from the hard disk,
  • bootable CD and floppy images for testing existing hardware for Amithlon compatibility,
  • an up-to-date FAQ.
Some parts are still in development and some parts are missing just completely --- but regarding the discussions taking place at the moment I wanted to make the existing information available as soon as possible. (ps) (Translation: wk)

IRC-Kanal for GRex users
Michael Göken wrote:
As already mentioned we want to set up an IRC channel that offers a possibility for the exchange of experiences to GRex owners. If we'd have some flatrate owners we could maintain an online channel.

I post the server I'll open the #GREXX channel on from time to time.

Channel: #GREXX

Update 28-Oct-2001:
The name of the IRC channel was changed. It's now '#GREX' and it is set up on the server (port: 6667).

Amiga Arena: Interview with James Daniels (programmer of Payback)
There's currently perhaps only one commercial Amiga game which is maintained so well as Payback by James Daniels. Sadly, James' work does not reflect in the sales. Because of the download count (updates) which are much higher than the sales it has to be assumed that a huge amount of pirated copies endanger the further development of Payback!

In the interview with Amiga Arena James revealed what the update 6 will offer. Should the amount of sales not increase we will have to do without a very talented "young" developer for Amiga.

Special thanks to Christian B. who made it possible that the interviews are online in German and English. (ps) (Translation: rh)

GFX-BASE: New entries and review of Mira-WizARC
At the GFX-BASE you can once more read a new review. This time Kevin Hansen has tested the archive manager Mira-WizARC. Besides our vote (which ends in the next days) there are some new entries of games and scene demos which support graphics cards.

Also new is an improved layout as well as a new logo which is meant to illustrate a small change in direction of our magazine: the GFX-BASE magazine is now not only for graphics card users but for Amiga high-end users in general. (ps) (Translation: rh)

OSNews: Interview with Guillaume Maillard of the BlueOS team
There's an interesting article at OS-News about BlueOS, a BeOS clone based on Linux. In this article a BlueOS team member answers questions about the planned system. This article is also interesting from Amiga point of view for the following reasons:
  • BlueOS could become another alternative operating system for the bPlan PPC board
  • BlueOS could show that it's possible to build an alternative operating system on a Linux kernel which is compatible to an existing one (BeOS). Something similar would be possible for AmigaOS for example with AROS.
All in all the BlueOS project seems to be in a very early state. Interesting for Amiga fans are the aims of the project which read on the homepage as follows: "Call this project ´BeOS 8´ or ´AmigaOS 10, the revenge´ if you want, our dream is to make something better than these great OSes."

Private G-REX 4000D performance tests by Andreas C. Schmidt
Last week I have promised in one of the comment threads to make real world tests on my G-REX 4000D. Now that I have my G-REX together with Voodoo3-3000 working the results are available at the title link.

Amidog's AMP sadly does not run with the G-REX-Voodoo combination and likes to crash on startup. I don't have a 100 MBit ethernet card yet since the drivers are still missing. As soon as the drivers are available I will do the tests.

One word on the 3D games: Heretic and Shogo run perfectly, Wipeout runs (on my system) only on Workbench and the glQuake status bar is mangled and unreadable. The main 3D graphic in glQuake is not affected, though.

Now a call to all Mediator users: I would *LOVE* to see my tests on the most powerful Mediator environment (603e-240, Voodoo3-3000)! With the help of my test notes it should be easily possible for anyone to execute them himself (except the ethernet test).
