Elfie - The Unicorn: Jump and Run game for girls (beta version)
Christian Giesing's "Elfie - The Unicorn" is a jump and run game, which the author has created for his daughters using Backbone. "Jack - The Unicorn Hunter" has also already announced and will be the equivalent for boys.

Currently the game is a beta version thus can include bugs and according to the author has not been perfectly balanced out. Some graphics and screens are still missing as well. 14 MHz, 2 MB RAM and Kickstart 3.x are required. (snx) (Translation: dr)

Hollywood: ZIP plugin 1.0
Press release: Airsoft Softwair, the unstoppable coding machine, is back on your screen with a brand new plugin for Hollywood: zip.hwp! This plugin allows Hollywood scripts to conveniently read and write zip archives. It uses Hollywood 6.0's new file and directory adapter plugin interfaces which allow you to iterate through zip archives as if they were normal directories. Files within zip archives can also be accessed as if the zip archive was a normal directory. It just doesn't get any easier!

With zip.hwp it is not necessary to unpack a file stored in a zip archive to a temporary file before it can be opened. Hollywood 6.0's file adapter plugin interface allows direct streaming from the zip archive into the respective file handler without any temporary file overhead. This makes it even possible to stream music or video directly from a zip file!

Additionally, zip.hwp also offers a range of functions to read, modify, and write zip archives. New zip archives can be created and existing zip archives can be opened and modified. There are lots of functions which allow you to read, change, and write attributes of files stored in zip archives. On top of that, zip.hwp also supports reading and storing password-protected files with strong AES-128, AES-192, and AES-256 encryption (though note that on AmigaOS 3.x and AROS it is not recommended to encrypt archives because the randomizer on these operating systems isn't strong enough for cryptography purposes.)

The zip plugin requires at least Hollywood 6.0 and is provided free of charge for all users of Hollywood. Note that it is recommended that you use at least Hollywood 7.0 because with earlier versions there is no support for archives which contain files with non-ASCII names. The zip plugin is available in versions for AmigaOS 3.x, AmigaOS 4, MorphOS, AROS (x86), Windows (x86, x64), Mac OS X (PPC, x86, x64), Linux (PPC, ARM, x86, x64) and Android. On top of that, the plugin comes with 30 pages of documentation in various formats like PDF, HTML, AmigaGuide, and CHM.

Zip.hwp is now available for free download from the official Hollywood portal at the title link. (snx)
