Editor's Thoughts and Introduction:
 As we finish the first month of the new year and fight off cabin 
fever in the northern half of the world, at least we have a lot of 
Amiga news to keep our minds busy. A number of the items this time 
round come from the OS 4.0 Depot, showing a reassuring level of 
support from the community. Thanks to all who are involved in these 
efforts, and please keep these packages coming! 
 Less reassuring is the vanishing of all new hardware. I don't know 
why that has happened, but as indicated last month, that has been 
given as the reason there is no final version of the OS. We agree that 
it certainly wouldn't be a good thing to offer the OS to the world 
when there's no hardware available to run it on. The most obvious 
reason for such a state of affairs is that no one can make enough 
money selling the hardware to make it worth while to build it. Of 
course, one thing that should improve sales is a completed OS. What we 
have here is what some programmers might call a "lock condition".
 The best way out is for someone to work out a hardware/OS package 
combination that can be put together with minimum risk of money, and 
get it on the market soon. We think there are people working on this. 
We hope so, and wish all the luck in the world to anyone trying to put 
together such a deal.
 Finally, we should take note of a sad event in the Amiga community. 
We have received word that the first registered Amiga Users' Group, 
the Northwest Amiga Group, has folded. There will be some follow on 
activities but the group itself, which held registration number 1 from
Commodore, is gone. While this is indeed a loss, it has been noted by 
others that there still remain a number of active groups around the 
world, most of which weren't in existence when NAG was formed. In some 
ways this can be seen as a changing of the guard as user groups come 
and user groups go. Still, it's always sad to see a piece of the 
community with such a historical importance vanish. We wish the former 
members well. We have some thoughts from the group's blog below.
 Brad Webb,

E-mail to the E-ditor:

 The following note was received in response to last month's 
newsletter's Thoughts and Introduction:

"Rogue: As you have probably already guessed, there will be no 
OS 4 release this year....You can read the entire set of transcripts 
at www.amigaworld.net.
 Let's hope the situation with hardware availability can be set right 
soon. What a great event for the new  year it would be if we could 
see the release, finally, of OS4!..."

I no longer keep either of my Amigas running (I think either would, 
if I put some effort into it), but I continue to follow the ongoing 
drama with great interest. I was a little surprised that you presented 
this topic in the way you did---as if there were only bad news to 
report. I would have thought that you would have included the fact 
that there will be a prerelease 4 shortly that will be virtually 
complete and that Hyperion is working with new (and likely) sources 
for hardware. That is, for all practical purposes OS4 is here. Yes, 
you gave the link to the transcript(s), but that additional 
information strikes me as an essential part of the story, particularly 
for those who might be relying upon you as their primary source of 
Amiga news. From the follow-up chat, I would say that the community 
was generally positive about the news from the session. Your summary 
would lead people to expect otherwise.

Anyway, thanks as always for pulling together these summaries of the 
key stories affecting Amiga fans. The newsletter must be welcome for 
those who haven't the time or inclination to deal with all the rumor-
mongering and distractions that cloud the scene and just want to get 
to the essentials.

Happy New Year.
Henry
~~~~~~        
 Henry,
 You make very good points, so I wanted the readership to see your 
note. However, as you point out, you aren't using your existing 
Amigas, presumably because they're outdated. And of course you can't 
buy a new one right now. We've been waiting and waiting for OS 4.0 and 
we have to wait some more. It is not a good situation and it seems to 
have gotten worse with the vanishing of what hardware there was. As I 
noted in my introduction this time, I hope someone can resolve the 
impasse soon.
 At this point, I think the appropriate attitude has to be one of 
'when it's really here, then it's really here and we can celebrate, 
otherwise it's still vaporware'. OK, that's probably too harsh. Not 
really vaporware but beta-ware. We have a lot of that in the Amiga 
community. You cannot have more than a hobbiest level computing system 
that way. We can be at that level with the existing classic Amiga, as 
those who love to play with other vintage computers already are with 
C64s and the like. (Nothing wrong with that, by the way, as a number 
of vintage computers at "AU World Headquarters" atest.) We're so close 
to the finish line, it hurts to see anything slow the effort down. And 
while it is worrisome, note I didn't forcast the end of the Amiga 
community in my comments, just pointed out the lack of hardware is an 
issue. It remains an issue, but let's hope it's a short lived one. 
 Finally, please don't forget that the "Editor's Thoughts and 
Introduction" are an editorial, not a part of the news content of the
newsletter. I will mention news there from time to time, especially in 
the case of very short items without enough substance for a story, but 
it's an interpretation of the current Amiga scene more than anything 
else. Sometimes I'm right, sometimes I'm wrong when predicting the 
future. Right now, I still see a bright future, but we have to get 
past the full release of OS 4 first. The folks writing it didn't hold 
it back without good reason, as they rightly pointed out.
 Regards,
 Brad

Northwest Amiga Group {From their blog. Brad}

So if you did not hear, NAG is officially dead. This was not due to 
lack of interest, though that definitely played a factor, since we no 
longer had anyone willing to volunteer for BOD positions. Geoff has 
expressed an interest in continuing to host a monthly Amiga DTP 
meeting, and I will continue to maintain this and the Journal websites 
as long as possible. There will always be interest for Amiga, and we 
can certainly keep in touch via this website, etc. for Amiga news.

We still have a lot of logistics to take care of which will take 
several months, I will dedicate what little spare time I have leftover 
to maintaining the website and creating a monthly newsletter/magazine. 
Obviously I will change the name, as legally I cannot use Northwest 
Amiga Group anymore, but I will continue to promote Amiga as long as 
there is interest. (Point in case - we had a Journal subscription 
payment last week.)

January 23, 2006 - San Francisco, CA. – Today, Amiga, Inc. and Kaliko
Entertainment released Brainteaser for all devices running 
AmigaAnywhere.

This innovative production brings all of the addictive challenges of 
leading puzzle games to the most popular digital devices. Amiga makes 
it simple for all users to play Brainteaser on their most frequently 
used devices – PCs, TVs, mobile phones, media players, memory cards 
and more. The combination of Amiga’s cross platform digital 
environment with the recent surge of smarter mobile devices and 
enhanced cable systems now brings arcade-quality applications to a 
previously constrained market.

In the mobile games market alone, the puzzle games category has the 
largest share of revenue, claiming 27.1% of revenues, according to 
Telephia. Brainteaser is a classic puzzle game demanding skill and 
dexterity as players try to connect animated tiles of the same type 
into groups - all before these tiles fill the screen. Kaliko continues 
to provide a high quality gaming experience in Brainteaser by 
contrasting a serene setting of images and classical music against 
players that frantically race against time to strategically align 
images in the most critical locations. Brainteaser is similar in 
gameplay to Bejeweled and Alchemy - market leading games that have 
produced millions of hours of gameplay.

"Amiga is focused on providing a simple means for all users to enjoy 
the best selling media anytime, anywhere and on any device", said 
Vince Pfeifer, director of product development. "Brainteaser's superb 
graphics, gameplay and market appeal add great value to our 
portfolio."

"Amiga quickly brings our applications to a variety of devices, 
opening up a variety of channels for Brainteaser", said Fredrik 
Schultz, founder of Kaliko Entertainment. "The simplicity of their 
development environment and their ability to run high performance 
applications with intense graphics made Amiga the right choice for 
Brainteaser."

Brainteaser is immediately available for WinCE-based mobile devices, 
including PocketPC and SmartPhone, and will soon be available for 
Linux and Symbian-based devices, set top boxes, personal multimedia 
devices and PCs.

About Kaliko Entertainment:

Kaliko Entertainment is a team of creative people with a long history 
of supporting and developing for the Amiga community. Kaliko focuses 
on creating high quality games for a wide range of gamers, emphasizing 
great game play and tremendous user experience. The team aims to

8-Jan-2006

Airsoft Softwair is proud to announce that the biggest update in 
Hollywood history is now available. Hollywood 2.0 is a massive update 
with endless new features. The program and its documentation have 
almost doubled in size. Here is a brief overview of the major new 
features of Hollywood 2.0 but there are tons more:

* Programming language: Hollywood has a completely new, state-of-the-
art 64-bit script language which is dynamically typed and thus, 
extremely flexible.

* Sprites: Hollywood now offers a fully featured sprite library that 
is implemented completely in software. Hence, there are no limitations 
in sprite size, frames, colors and so on. With sprites, a lot of cool 
things are possible.

* Music library: The new music library allows playback of MP3 files 
and Protracker modules. Ptahiplay.library is no longer required!

* AROS support: Hollywood is now available for the i386 version of the 
Amiga Research Operating System AROS. On AROS native, Hollywood 2.0 
gives a stunning performance on modern PCs. Additionally, AROS support 
means that you can compile x86 native AROS executables also from 
MorphOS, AmigaOS3 or 4 now.

* Antialias: Antialiasing is now fully implemented for TrueType fonts 
on all systems. Drawing routines are very fast even on 68k because of 
highly-optimized code.

* Powerful scheduler: Hollywood's new, powerful scheduler allows you 
to create exactly timed scripts which run at the same speed on every 
system.

* Alpha channel support: Hollywood supports graphics with an alpha 
channel now. Thus, it supports graphics with up to 32-bits per pixel 
now. Highly optimized drawing routines give excellent results even on 
68k systems.

* Clip regions: Hollywood provides powerful clipping functions now 
that allow you to clip your graphics even to custom shaped regions 
(like circles, rectangles with round edges and so on).

* Collision detection: Fast pixel-exact collision detection is now 
offered. Even alpha channel information is taken into account by the 
collision detection!

* New off-screen rendering functions: All graphics calls can be used 
now to render to brush masks and alpha channels, too. Paves the way 
for unique special effects!

* New GUI: The GUI has been completely rewritten and is much more 
functional now. It has a showcase that lists all the examples that 
come with Hollywood and also has screenshots and information about 
them.

* New examples: Hollywood 2.0 comes with over 15 cool new examples 
that demonstrate the new features. Hollywood has now over 45 examples 
in total.

* Dramatic speed improvements: The image processing functions are up 
to 10 times faster now on WarpOS because the PPC is used now for 
everything! The drawing library is also much faster now.

* Layer improvements: When removing layers, Hollywood will now use 
special undo effects which work just the other way round. Furthermore, 
layers can be given names now. This makes it much easier to work with 
them because the names do not change like the ids! Finally, anim 
layers are possible now.

* DOS functions: Hollywood 2.0 brings many new DOS functions including 
a powerful CopyFile() function which can copy whole directories and is
customizable through a callback function.

* New button library: A much more flexible button library has 
superseded the old one. The new button library calls functions instead 
of labels and has more features!

* Sample library: The PlaySample() command offers many more options 
now and can trigger OnSampleEnd and OnSampleLoop events for perfect 
script timing!

* Doublebuffer: Hollywood 2.0 has functions for setting up a double 
buffered display. Double buffer scaling is fully implemented.

* Drawing library: All commands of the draw library can draw alpha-
blended graphics now, too. Additionally, there are some new functions 
like Arc() which draws a partial ellipse, and FloodFill() which fills 
a bordered region with a color.

* Compiler: The Hollywood compiler has been completely rewritten and 
is more configurable now. You can embed version strings and more 
information in your executables. It is also possible to fix the 
settings of your compiled scripts; for instance, you can create an 
executable that will only run in full screen mode.

* New fillstyles: All drawing functions can use additional fill 
styles. Hollywood supports the fill styles 'gradient' and 'texture' 
now.

* Image export: You can now save your brushes to files and also save 
snapshots of your script from within Hollywood!

* Independence: Hollywood does no longer require the guigfx.library,
render.library, and ptahiplay.library.

* Full 1.x compatibility: Although the kernel has been completely 
exchanged, Hollywood 2.0 is fully compatible with the previous 
versions. All your scripts should run fine with Hollywood 2.0, and 
Hollywood Designer and Malibu do not need any updates, either.

Starting with Hollywood 2.0, the program does no longer work on 
systems without a graphics board. A hi/true color screenmode is now 
required. Hollywood comes on a CD-ROM that contains versions for all 
supported platforms: There are native versions of the program for 
AmigaOS3, WarpOS, MorphOS, AmigaOS4 and for the first time AROS 
(i386). A download version is also offered. If you already own 
Hollywood 1.x, you can buy a discounted upgrade version.

Hollywood 2.0 is Airsoft Softwair's definite Multimedia experience 
(Code name: Vision.1) and was given 10 of 10 points throughout by all 
of its beta testers. On top of all those features, Hollywood also has 
a cross-compiler which allows you to save executables for any platform 
that Hollywood supports. For example, AROS users can save AmigaOS4 
executables with Hollywood. Or MorphOS users can save WarpOS 
executables and so on. Hollywood is the ultimate bridge between all 
those different AmigaOS compatible platforms! With Hollywood, you can 
support them all. Please visit the Airsoft Softwair web page for 
screenshots and a complete feature list of Hollywood. You can also 
order Hollywood 2.0 at the Airsoft Softwair web page -

{Found at www.amigaworld.net. Support that site, it's excellend! Brad}

After long and hard work which is silly really as this is the most 
simplist type of game to make, finally the game Wuzzi is complete for 
release. Wuzzi is a board game that represents a tic tac toe with one 
exception you have to form five lines instead of 3 and this is a two 
player game only.

Many thanks goes to Jahc (heheh, I just love teasing that guy), 
fishy_fis (that brain this guy have, * smouch * just full of knowledge 
oh baby yeah), for helping me from sticky places and pushing me 
through - thanks guys.

Many thanks goes for tonsofpcs for providing me the graphics I needed. 
While the game is complete, tonsofpcs has a new set of graphics that 
will replace the one included. If you don't like the graphics provided 
within the game, you can replace it with your very own, with of course 
certain exceptions. It is 5-bit apparently, so be careful as sometimes 
the colors will not come out as you expected, like fishy_fis said 
"Your code is a mess." ;)

I wanted to contribute to the community and finally I did, phew, I 
feel relaxed now. Have fun all and please tell me of any bugs you 
find. If you want me to further develop the software with new 
enhancements please tell me, I wouldn't mind. If you want further 
features, better level design, etc, I don't mind at all, even have an 
option menu, who knows. But I wouldn't bother do it until you all the 
millions of bosses out there tell me so, so I don't end up wasting my 
time and effort doing something and in the end it is not going to be 
used.

If you wish to email me you can do so via my email address at
amiga500@gmail.com, Wuzzi can be downloaded from www.aminet.net

AmiKit is the compilation of the best Amiga (free/shareware) programs 
around. To be brief, AmiKit is all you need if you want to experience 
a high-end Classic Amiga system. It contains many expansions and 
add-ons (more than 20.000 files are included in AmiKit!) that turn the 
default AmigaOS installation into a completely renewed and fresh 
environment. This pre-configured package is designed for immediate use

DESCRIPTION OF NEW SOFTWARE IN v1.04 UPDATE

"STFax 4" is a multi-purpose voice/fax/data communications package. 
It's is a phone, answer-machine, facsimile, mini-BBS and c
ommunications server. STFax 4 offers scalability, adapting to the home 
user needing a simple answer/fax machine replacement, through to a 
company requiring automated fax and voice message distribution across 
small network of computers. Enhanced flexibility also enables a 
travelling businessman to install onto his notebook, connect his GSM 
phone and send/receive a fax, receive/reply/send an SMS message, 
write/send/receive email or even remotely access the local STFax 4, 
situated within the office. Author: Simone Tellini.

"DigiCoverter" is used to convert numbers between decimal, 
hexadecimal, binary, floating point... You can also type in letters 
and see their ASCII-codes or type numbers and see characters. Author: 
Daniel Westerberg.

"GuardAmy" is extremely useful if you want to know which of your 
favourite websites have been changed since your last visit without a 
need to check them all again manually. Author: Diego 'dx0' de Felice.

"Tree" lists the directory structure in a tree-form. You can use it 
within Directory Opus Magellan II, hold down the right mouse button 
over a directory and select "Show Tree". Note that scanning through a 
deep directory structure may take some time before the result is 
displayed. Author: Frank Brandis.

"KingCON" patch updates the well-known but old KingCON 1.3 handler to 
version 1.7. Besides many various fixes, this CON replacement now 
supports the mouse wheel! Author: Mikolaj Calusinski

"console.device" and "MultiView" are another unofficial patches of 
original OS3.9 files. You can install them by clicking the Taskbar -> 
Tools -> Install Patches. Author: Mikolaj Calusinski.

...and much more, see the downloads page!

Frozen Bubble
Description:     Frozen Bubble a popular game written in perl
Download:     frozen.lha       
Version:     1.0.0
Date:     03 Jan 06
Author:     Guillaume Cottenceau (port by Andy Broad)
Submitter:     Andy Broad
Email:     andy/broad ology org uk
Homepage:     http://www.frozen-bubble.org
Requirements:     perl 5.8.5.04, abc-shell
Category:     game/puzzle
Replaces:     game/puzzle/frozen.lha
License:     GPL
Distribute:     yes
FileID:     1488


Here is a port of the popular game Frozen Bubble, written by
Guillaume Cottenceau et al in perl using the SDL_perl extention.

See http://www.frozen-bubble.org for more info.

This port is for amigaos4 and requires perl 5.8.5.04 perl 5.8.5 (4th 
amiga os4 release with dynamic loading and POSIX extention). It will 
not work with any earlier version of perl for amigaos4. {Find it at 
http://www.os4depot.net/ Brad.} It incorporates a  special build of
SDL_perl which combines the SDL_perl with the fb_c_stuff modules.
(This gets arround a problem where the two need to interact on a level 
my current dynamic loading implementatuion doesn't allow), [please 
note if you want SDL_perl for something else, please wait for a short 
while, don't use this version....]

This port stores all it configs (.fbrc .fblevels etc) in bubbles: 
(or /bubbles in unix parlance). The provided start script "fb" sets up 
and removes the assign for you. If you wish to run from the command 
line "by hand" you will need to add it your self.

UPDATE:

o relink against older SDL, music and sound problems fixed.

o increased sound buffer size to 4096 as recomended by toaks.

o found a few more instances of $ENV{HOME} replaced them with 
/bubbles.

o added a timidity config to stop SDL from looking for it in 
/usr/local/lib I suspect though that it's not actually used.

These changes should get most of the glitches people were getting.


Installation:

Just unpack to the destination of your choice.

To run:

Click on the icon or....

make an assign bubbles: to the directory where you unpacked the game.
start abc-shell
cd /bubbles

launch perl as follows

perl -I blib/lib -I blib/arch frozen-bubble <any frozen bubble 
options>


Known bugs:

Fullscreen mode does not work.


Have fun

Attention: MorphOS 1.4.5 contains a faulty hal.com1 which does not map 
CVision3D cards properly in ZorroIII mode. People who like to use 
CVision3D with MorphOS should replace the file roms/hal.com1 by the 
one found at the cgx site ! This file only needs to be replaced if you 
own a CVision3D and use PowerUp MorphOS 1.4.5 !

WarpView is an image wiewer which uses Warp3D to display the images. 
The advantage of using Warp3D is fast high quality scaling.

Changes in this version:

- Added Copy, Move and Delete options to allow easy file sorting

- Fixed a bug which caused a crash when the file requester was 
  cancelled on  startup

- Implemented "Enlarge To Fit" and "Shrink to Fit" options (available 
  via menu, command line options and icon tooltypes)

- When zoomed in, scroll step is now larger to allow faster scrolling 
  with the mouse

- Fixed a bug which sometimes caused the rotation/zoom mode to stay 
  enabled even after releasing the qualifier keys

WarpView uses the datatype system of AmigaOS to load the images. This 
way all popular image formats can be viewed (IFF-ILBM, JPEG, PNG, 
etc.) if you have the datatypes installed.

WarpView is FREEWARE and is my gift to the Amiga community. If you 
like it you are welcome to tell me about it, however please do not 
bomb me with feature requests. I will keep improving WarpView, but my 
bigger projects have higher priority.

WarpView requires AmigaOS4 and a Radeon graphics card.

You should have a lot of free graphics memory, otherwise you'll have 
problems, especially viewing high resolution images.

existence before (checking &) adding them to the list.

* Help "bubbles" can be toggled on or off from the settings menu and 
at startup from the preferences.

* Improvements to stream recovery and forced restarts on buffer empty.
* Single streams specified from the cli "-stream" option or from m3u 
files can now be saved along with the playlist.
* DNS timeout added to finally halt any long term network related 
lockups (6 second time out by default).
* Blank URLS in PLS files are now handled without crashing the task.
* Spaces in URL's are now converted to %20
