CardTrickEVD Patch for ShapeShifter 3.11
Harry Sintonen has provided a patch under the title link, which allows the blitter acceleration of the CardTrickEVD driver (Aminet) even with version 3.11 of the Mac emulator ShapeShifter.

Niels Knoop's CardTrickEVD is a graphics card driver for ShapeShifter and replaces the integrated CyberGraphX/P96 driver.

Update: (06:04, 15.06.07, snx)
Meanwhile there is also a corresponding patch for PippinEVD, which driver enables the usage of a picture-in-picture display for graphics cards that support this by hardware. (snx) (Translation: tz)

Amiga Future: New fullversions are online
Pressemitteilung: ue to the fact that some issues of the Amiga Future have been sold out in the meantime we have put new full versions for free download on the Amiga Future homepage. You can download them at: We look for someone who wants to take care of the downloads section of the Amiga Future. In fact it is about writing system requirements and small descriptions for each software package in German and English. The issue 66 has been released recently and is available in our online shop. Just now we work hard on issue 67. No. 67 will be the first Amiga Future issue being published in German and English. We ask all interested users to order issue 67 as soon as possible because we'll print only the preordered amount plus a small reserve. (cg) (Translation: aj)
