Game development: "Chaos Guns"-project needs new programmer
Recently a playable demo of the multiplayer coop-shooter "Chaos Guns" was released - now the developers have informed that the only programmer left and a new one is needed.

Chaos Guns is written in PowerD which is a very obscure further development of Amiga E which obciously is very similar to it. Therefore it is necessary to write the engine of the game right from the beginning or to translate the 10.000 lines of the PowerD source code into regular Amiga E and then to work in this language.

Apollo-Core: Photograph of Phoenix prototype (Update)
Under the title link the developers of the Apollo-Core, which also is tested in the Vampire-600 accelerator board ( reported), have published a photograph of Rev. A of the Apollo-Phoenix-board.

Probably in the third quarter of this year this extension for existing systems with a 68000-processor will be available. It is put on the mainboard and is supposed to provide a higher speed and complete code-compatibility.

Additional to the Cyclone-V-FPGA, the Phoenix-board has 128 MB (DDR3, 800 MHz). The operating system can be copied into the RAM using the corresponding MapROM-functions. Further features are a SD-card as IDE-harddrive, HDMI video output (Truecolor) and a network port.

In Future an included flickerfixer/scandoubler (to connect an Amiga to a HDMI-TV), a Chip-RAM-extension and an AGA- (and later Super-AGA-) extension as well as Picasso96-drivers will be added.

Update: (18:32, 19.07.14, snx)
The complete extension consists of two cards. The FPGA module is shown on a second photo (below the Amiga 600 mainboard); how it is mounted on the Phoenix board is illustrated by an animation. (snx) (Translation: dr)

AmigaOS 4 / AROS: PictureAlbum r1
After the "preview"-version ( reported), now version 1 of PictureAlbum written by Christopher Handley is available. By fixing a bug in PortablE the memory consumption of the graphic boards was lowered. The included MorphOS version creates buggy thumbnails. The author would be grateful for every hint which could solve the problem.

PictureAlbum can search picture directories which then are presented as thumbnails. By double-clicking the pictures can be viewed (screenshot). The programm saves the position of each opened picture of a directory.
