Chat with bplan at #AmigaFun
#AmigaFun: Realtime chat with Salvador Fernandez Gomez of bplan

On Monday, 21st January 2002, you can chat with Salvador Fernandez Gomez of bplan at the IRC Amiga channel #AmigaFun. He is known as one of the minds of bplan, well known with Pegasos. In the near future Pegasos will be released. You can ask him about bplan, Pegasos, and maybe some questions about MorphOS. The chat is organised with the help of Amiga Future.

You can reach the IRC channel #Amigafun this way:

IRC Server (without "irc."):
IRC Port: 6667
IRC Kanal: #amigafun

If the server malfunctions you can get access via this server: (without "irc.")


You can reach the chat also via the #AmigaFun Homepage, Amiga Future Homepage and from the Forum as HTML chat.

But we cannot guarantee that this HTML chat will function perfectly and programs like AMIRC and BlackIRC are more comfortable so we recommend to use an IRC client.

The used languages are German and English and the logfiles will be available at the Amiga Future and #AmigaFun homepages. (ps) (Translation: gf)

topcool: Interview-Steffen Häuser about Quake 2:68k-Version probably too slow
At the moment Quake2 is generated by Hyperion-Entertainment only for the PPC since the 68k computer has turned out to be too slow. In the interview with amiga-topcool Steffen Häuser gives away many more interesting details about porting the game which is registered in Germany. Steffen Häuser is working together with Hans-Jörg and Thomas Frieden on a port of Quake2 for AmigaOS.

Update 13.01.2002:
Daniel Orth: "Steffen Häuser has asked me to change the heading of the interview. He emphasized that the 68k version for QuakeII hasn't died yet. He won't exclude it explicitly, since a decision hasn't been made yet. In the interview he only said that a 68k version might be too slow. more...". (ps) (Translation: sr)
