AmigaOS 4 / MorphOS: Multitheme #1 - New questions for Ask Me Up XXL
Jérôme 'Glames' Senay's Ask Me Up is a "quiz of general knowledge" for AmigaOS 4 and MorphOS (as well as Windows), in which you have to correctly answer 1700 questions, each with four possible answers. You can play it for yourself or together with up to five other players (four players using a joystick, the other two sharing the keyboard).

Now "Multitheme #1" can be purchased for ¤3,99 and is an add-on with 400 new questions. It is available in English, Spanish and French. It requires at least the 2.4.3 (CD) release of Ask Me Up XXL, but the latest version 2.6.0 is recommended. As examples, the following three questions are mentioned: "What is the emblem of the Stark family?", "When was Space Invaders released?" and "How many genes do humans and sea urchin have in common?".

ACube: Firmware update for Sam 440ep
ACube Systems has released a firmware update for his PPC-motherboards "Sam 440ep": The Mini-ITX as well as the Flex versions are supported. Mainly the changes are supposed to improve the compatibility with Radeon-HD graphic boards:
  • improved gfx cards setup, it solves compatibility problems with some Radeon HD cards
  • better internal PCI bridge setup for a slight faster RAM <-> VRAM transfer speed
  • added PEX 8112 PCI – PCIE bridge setup (used on some Radeon HD PCI variant cards)
  • added a new menu entry to enable/disable IRQ on an external PCI gfx card (try disabling IRQ if the system seems freezed after loading the AOS4.1 kickstart files, for example)
The update and the source codes can be downloaded at ACube. Both update methods - ISO-image or TFTP - are descibed in the "Installation Guide". (cg) (Translation: dr)
