Spiel: Minimum Safe Distance
Satanic Dreams Software arbeitet an einem neuen Spiel, welches eine Mischung aus Cannon Fodder, Worms und King Arthurs World (SNES) sein wird, oder wie Satanic Dreams es bezeichnet: "Worms in Real-Time".

Das Spiel bietet über 40 Waffen und 50 Bilder/s auf einen 68020-AGA-System mit 4MB Fast-RAM.

Für die Erzeugung von Tiefe(Parallax-Scrolling) benutzt es viele der Möglichkeiten, die die Amiga AGA-Chips zur Verfügung stellen. Die unten aufgeführten Effekte im Chunky-Grafikformat mit 50 Bildern/s zu erstellen, wäre, laut Schätzung von Satanic Dreams, ab einen 060/PPC-Grafikkarten-System möglich aber sehr aufwendig. So hat man sich für eine AGA-Version entschieden, weil man mit dieser Version wohl mehr Leute erreichen wird, die dann auch schon auf einen kleinen System alle Möglichkeiten des Spiels auskosten können.

Eine Chunky-Version, mit auf Grafikkarten zugeschnittenen Effekten, wäre aber auch leicht umzusetzen.

Zu den angekündigten Effekten und Features gehören:
  • 5 Parallax-Wolken, zur Anzeige der Windgeschwindigkeit und -Richtung.
  • 6 animierte Parallax-Ebenen für Wellen
  • 2 Parallax-Ebenen für Berge
  • Sanftes aus-/einblenden per Copper
  • Weiches, Vier-Punkte Scrolling
  • 2 Spielebenen(vorne und hinten)
  • Verschiedene Missionen im Ein-Spieler-Modus
  • Beeinddruckende Explosionen und reichlich Blut
  • 50 Bilder/s auf einem 68020-System
  • Über 40 Waffen und ein angekündigtes Erweiterungspacket
  • Verschiedene Spielkombinationen:
    • 2 SpielerInnen gegen Computer
    • SpielerIn gegen SpielerIn
    • Geteilter Bildschirm(Splitscreen) oder über eine serielle Verbindung
  • Frei definierbare Missionen, Szenarien, Sounds und Teams
  • Erzeugung eigener Level

Weitere Features werden während der Weiterentwicklung hinzukommen und auf der Homepage angekündigt werden.

Das Spiel ist schon in einen Entwicklungszustand der "spielen" zuläßt aber es ist noch viel Arbeit für die Fertigstellung nötig, so daß noch kein Erscheinungstermin bekannt ist. Ein frühes Bildschimfoto ist auf der MSD-Seite veröffentlicht.

Programmiert wird Minimum Safe Distance von Simon Hitchen und Rob Hutchinson. Die Grafiken werden von Kevin Cullen und John Tsanais erstellt und für den guten Ton sorgt Phil Price.

Systemvoraussetzung
  • 68020
  • 4MB Fast-RAM
  • AGA
  • CD-ROM Laufwerk
  • Derzeit 1MB auf der Festplatte

Das Spiel unterstützt zusätzlich Modems und die serielle Schnittstelle für den Zwei-Spieler-Modus.

NewsRog Update Version 1.7
Download: NewsRog1.x-1.7.lha

Am 25. Juni 1999 hat ShadowWorks das Update auf die Version 1.7 des Newsreaders "NewsRog" veröffentlicht. Diese Version enthält eine ganze Reihe Änderungen und Bugfixes, so daß sich für registrierte AnwenderInnen das kostenlose Update lohnt.

NewsRog ist ein leistungsfähiger NNTP-Client zum Lesen der Newsgroups des Usenets. Der Reader läuft ab 68020, AGA, AmigaOS V3.0, MUI V3.8 und 8MByte freien RAM. Für eine bequemere Nutzung wird eine höhere Auflösung ab 800x600 in 256 Farben und ein leistungsstärkeres System empfohlen. Die Auflösung ist u.a. für die bessere Darstellung von Bilder innerhalb des Programms von Nutzen. An TCP/IP Stacks werden alle Miami und AmiTCP kompatiblen unterstützt.

Gegenüber der vorigen Version enthält V1.7 u.a. folgende Änderungen:
  • Bugfix: Nachdem Umschalten der "Use Font" oder "Use Color" Checkboxen in einer Gruppeneinstellung, führte das zweite Öffnen der Gruppe zu einem Absturz.
  • Änderung: HTML-Tags werden nicht mehr als Quotezeichen hervorgehoben.
  • Neu: Die Neuformatierung kommt besser mit Einrückungen zurecht.
  • Neu: Das DblSpace-Selektion-Filter kann nun optional auch Muster mit anderen sich wiederholenden Zeichen wie z.B. in "T*h*i*sI* s S*p*a*m*!" erkennen.
  • Neu: Dateien für zufällige Taglines(Cookies) werden unterstützt. Das Format ist identisch mit dem von YAM.
  • Bugfix: Die Sortierung von gespeicherten Artikeln vor nicht gespeicherten oder gelesenen vor nicht gelesenen arbeitete fehlerhaft und wurde korrigiert.
  • Neu: Ein Filter mit dem man Threads nach der Anzahl der Postings bewerten kann, die innerhalb eines bestimmten Zeitraums geschrieben worden sind. Hiermit können sehr aktive und weniger aktive Threads hervorgehoben werden.
  • Neu: Filter können mit einen selbstdefinierbaren Toolbar-Icon versehen werden, mit denen sich ein Filter ein- und ausschalten läßt worauf die Artikelliste entsprechend aktualisiert wird. Hierzu stellt NewsRog im Images/Filter-Verzeichnis verschiedene 24-Bit Icons mit 50*30 Punkten zur Verfügung, die auf eine Auflösung von 800*600 in True-/Highcolor zugeschnitten sind.
  • Bugfix: Die Any/All-Gadgets in Filterlisten besitzen nun eine Sprechblasenhilfe.
  • Das Tutorial zu den Filtern wurde um Informationen zum Any/All-Modus erweitert.
  • Änderung: Beim Anwählen des Close-Gadgets oder Cancel-Buttons während des Edierens eines neuen Postings wird nun gefragt, ob das Posting gelöscht oder zur Post-Queue geschickt werden soll.
  • Neu: Der erste erreichbare bzw. nicht gelesene Artikel kann nun automatisch angezeigt werden, wenn vom All-Threads-Modus in den One-Thread-Modus gewechselt wird.
  • Neu: Die Batch-Download-Buttons des Gruppenfensters besitzen nun Tastaturkürzel.
  • Neu: SENDPOST ARexx-Befehl zum Versenden von einer oder mehreren, in der Post-Queue, anliegenden Nachrichten.
  • Neu: Es gibt nun ein Druckermenü innerhalb des Gruppen-Menüs. Hierüber kann der angezeigte Artikel mit oder ohne Kopf ausdruckt werden.
  • Änderung: Der Algorithmus zur Generierung von Abkürzungen für Usernamen wurde geändert. Wenn nur ein Name vorhanden ist wird nun nur noch der erste und nicht mehr die ersten fünf Buchstaben zurückgegeben.
  • Neu: Die "variable lookup language" wurde stark um Formatierungsmöglichkeiten und mathematische Funktionen erweitert.
  • Bugfix: Die PRI-Option der ${exec}-Funktion wurde bisher ignoriert.
  • Neu: Verschiedene Filter zur Darstellung von Artikeln können den Text nun auch beim Speichern, Drucken und Beantworten modifizieren. Dies funktioniert bei den Filtern, die den Text eines Artikel verändern.
  • Bugfix: Die HTML-Größenangaben des Server-Gruppen-Fensters im Tutorial #5 waren fehlerhaft.
  • Änderung: Die HTML-Dokumentation wurde um viele Bildschirmfotos und neue Bereiche erweitert. Ältere Bildschirmfotos wurden durch neue ersetzt.
  • Neu: Die Kommandozeilenoption SP=STARTPROJ/K wurde in SP=STARTPROJ/M geändert, dies erlaubt es einen Projektnamen ohne das STARTPROJ- bzw. SP-Schlüsselwort anzugeben.
  • Änderung: Der Cache-Algorithmus für Artikel wurde so geändert, daß die gerade angezeigten Artikel immer im Speicher bleiben, selbst wenn sie die eingestellte Cachegröße überschreiten.
  • Bugfix: Falls die "Mem cache articles" Einstellung für eine Gruppe ein vielfaches von 16 betrug, wurden u.U. Speicherbereiche überschrieben.
  • Bugfix: Beim Lesen von Artikeln mit verschiedenen Längen in diversen Kombinationen konnte der Speicher-Cache zerstört werden.
  • Neu: Ein neuer Button, inklusive Tastaturkürzel, erlaubt die Entfernung von selektierten Artikeln oder Threads aus der aktuellen Artikelliste, ohne daß diese Postings gelöscht werden.
  • Bugfix: Einige, fehlerhafte News-Server geben eine erfolgreiche Antwort bei NNTP ARTICLE/HEAD/BODY-Befehlen, ohne eine einzige Textzeile zu verschicken. Dies führte bisher zum Absturz von NewsRog. Nun reagiert NewsRog auf diesen Fall entsprechend und kennzeichnet den Artikel mit einem entsprechenden Icon.
  • Neu: Falls durch die Anzahl von runterzuladenden Artikeln die Obergrenze, der in einer Gruppe gewünschten Artikel überschritten wird, kann man nun die entsprechende Option so einstellen, daß die ältesten Artikel nicht oder alle Artikel unter Ignorierung der Größenbeschränkung runtergeladen werden. Dies kann automatisch im Hintergrund ohne Bestätigung oder erst nach einer Bestätigung erfolgen.
  • Neu: Das Filter für die MIME-Anzeige bietet nun eine "No-Display Types"-Einstellung mit der die Anzeige von MIME-Typen, z.B. text/html, unterdrückt werden kann.
  • Änderung: Die BadWrap-Fix-Option ist nun in der Voreinstellung aktiviert. Dies hat jedoch keine Auswirkungen auf existierende Projekte.
  • Änderung: Der voreingestellte Wert der HLQuotes-Option ist nun "scrolled quote blocks" statt "toggled quote blocks". Dies hat keine Auswirkungen auf existierende Projekte.
  • Bugfix: Fortlaufende Zeilen innerhalb der Artikel-Köpfe werden nun besser verarbeitet. Dies betrifft z.B. Referenzen und einige MIME-Features.
  • Bugfix: Einige MIME-kodierte Bilder werden mit dem Dateinamen in der Dateinamenangabe des Content-Disposition Feldes verschickt. Üblicher ist es den Namen im Content-Type Feld anzugeben. Das Filter zur MIME-Anzeige kann nun beide Fälle verarbeiten.
  • Neu: Falls ein Posting und die angehängte Signatur nur ASCII-Zeichen enthält, wird das Posting als text/plain MIME-Dokument mit der quoted-printable Kodierung verschickt.
  • Neu: Der Zeichensatz, der beim Schreiben und Lesen von Postings verwendet wird, kann nun frei gewählt werden.
  • Neu: Der Post-Editor besitzt mit "View Encoding" einen neuen Vorschaumodus. Dieser zeigt die raw-quoted-printable Kodierung des aktuellen Dokuments an. In diesen Modus sieht man Markierungen wie "=3D".
  • Bugfix: Ein Speicherleck des Author-Note-Features bei Filtern wurde behoben.
  • Neu: Die HELP- und USAGE-Kommandozeilenoptionen geben nun das NewsRog Befehlsmuster aus.
  • Neu: Eine neue Spalte in der Gruppenliste zeigt an, ob die Gruppe moderiert ist. Der voreingestellte Wert ist "Nein" und wird nur geändert wenn man eine "Read Description"-Operation für die jeweilige Gruppe ausgeführt wird.
  • Änderung: Klammern sind nicht mehr Teil der Abkürzung eines Usernamens.
  • Bugfix: Die Benutzung der "Limit to Selected"-Gruppenmenüoption ohne vorhandene selektierte Artikel, führte zu einer Endlosschleife. Derselbe Fehler hatte zur Folge, das ein Artikel weniger als eigentlich angewählt angezeigt wurde.
  • Änderung: Die minimale benötige Stackgröße für NewsRog wurde auf 80KB erhöht.
Features von NewsRog
  • On- und Offline lesen und schreiben, wobei selektierte Artikel, Gruppen und Threads in einem Rutsch auf die eigene Festplatte übertragen werden können.
  • Internes Multitasking u.a. ist es möglich schon Artikel zu lesen, während die Nachrichtenköpfe von anderen Artikeln noch vom Server geholt werden. Eine zusätzliche Option erlaubt es gezielt einen Thread vorzuladen, während man noch den ersten Artikel des Threads liest.
  • Unterstützung mehrerer Server.
  • Clipboard Unterstützung.
  • Suche innerhalb von Nachrichtentexten und -Köpfen.
  • Plug-Ins zur Anzeige von Artikeln. Die Anzeiger erlauben es u.a. Postings in verschiedenen Zeichensätzen und mit farblich hervorgehobenen Passagen anzuzeigen, Signaturen zu unterdrücken usw.
  • Filter zum Hervorheben von gewünschten und Unterdrücken von ungewünschten Postings und Threads.
  • Sortierung von Artikeln, Gruppen usw. nach diversen Vorgaben.
  • Unterstützung von MIME(Base64, quoted-printable) und UUEncode.

Internet-Nutzung für 1 Pfennig pro Minute (27.06.99)
---------------------------------------------------

Wie bereits gemeldet, kosten an diesem Dienstag Ferngespräche zwischen 21
und 24 Uhr über Talkline (01050) nur 1 Pfennig pro Minute. Doch dann ist
auch der Internet-Aufenthalt, selbst für Anwender, die keinen Provider mit
Einwahlnummer in der Fernzone haben, nicht teurer:

»Internet-Nutzer für 1 Pf./Min. Telefonkosten, aber kostenlos ins Internet

Hamburg, 24. Juni 1999. Die POP® Point of Presence GmbH, Hamburg, startet
preisaggressiv in die Sommerzeit. Denn auch die Internet-Nutzer sollen
sich über fallende Preise und Sonderaktionen der Telefongesellschaften
freuen können. Mit Highspeed ins Internet browsen sie ab dem 26. Juni 1999
an vorerst zwei Test-Wochenenden (26. und 27. Juni sowie 3. und 4. Juli)
kostenlos ins Internet. Jeweils von Freitag 24.00 Uhr bis Montag 0.00 Uhr
gilt diese Aktion, die gemeinsam von der POP Point of Presence GmbH,
Internet-Service-Provider, und der Telefongesellschaft HanseNet GmbH
realisiert wird. "Es spielt dabei keine Rolle", erklärt
POP-Geschäftsführer Holger Gruel, "über welche Telefongesellschaft sich
die Internet-Surfer einwählen." Sie könnten den jeweils günstigsten Tarif
für die Telefon-Gebühren selbst bestimmen. Der günstigste Tarif am
verbleibenden Juni-Wochenende wird z.B. über die 0109004152919888 für 2,9
Pf./Min. angeboten. Gleich dahinter plazieren sich die 0105004152919888 ab
3,9 Pf.Min. und die 0107004152919888 ab 4 Pf. Noch günstiger wird es
am Dienstag, dem 29. Juni 1999: über die 0105004152919888 zahlen die
Internet-Nutzer in der Zeit von 21-24 Uhr nur 1 Pf./Min. für das Surfen im
Internet!!! Die Abrechnung der Telefon-Gebühren erfolgt wie üblich über
die jeweilige Telefonfirma. Extra-Kosten wie für Anmeldung, Mindestgebühr
oder Grundgebühr fallen für die Internet-Nutzung nicht an. Und so geht's:
Im DFÜ-Netzwerk muß der Benutzername/Login "hansenet", das Kennwort/
Paßwort "pop", die Einwahlnummer "010xx-04152919888" und für die IP-Nummer
"dynamisch" eingegeben werden. Das genügt. Es stehen für die Testphase bis
einschließlich 4. Juli 1999 über 1000 Ports zur Verfügung, so daß 1000
Nutzer gleichzeitig über diese Plattform surfen können. Einmal
doppelklicken und verbinden. Und los geht's: Kostenlos ins Internet!!
Weitere Infos sind im Internet unter http://call.pop.de erhältlich.«

Editor's Thoughts and Introduction:
 We're about half way through the year, and what a year it's been so
far. It seems there's a genuine rebirth of confidence in the future
for Amiga. We have also discovered Amiga's new president is at home on
the web, and is actively using it. What a pleasant surprise that's
been! We have a number of thoughts from Jim Collas below that were
initially shared with the Amiga community through web postings. He's
even responded to a letter printed in "Amiga Update", and made sure
the facts got to our readers. This is all very good.
 Perhaps not so good, but who can be sure, the year has seen a rash of
"promise to pay or I won't make/write it" marketing schemes. I have
mixed feelings about those, but generally don't like them. We hear
from a reader on that topic in this issue.
 I don't want to get into a long "the year so far in review" column,
so I'll drop that theme right here. Instead I'll point out that we
seem to be missing another issue from the archives, just as we've
completed an effort to recover a number of issues that had been lost
along the way. This is issue 980525, which I didn't even realize we
had. (Embarrassed blush follows.) If anyone knows of or has a copy,
please help us out. We'll add it to the archive, and to our newly
revised backup plans.
 One last thing - the Amiga Yellow Pages (http://ayp.amiga.tm) are
putting "Amiga Update" online in a snazzy html format. Stop by, take a
look, and let them know what you think.
 Best regards,
 Brad Webb,
 Editor

E-mail to the E-ditor:

14 Jun 1999

Greetings Brad,

 I enjoy the Amiga Update, and read the posts religiously. I have
noticed a trend lately in the Amiga community that is just now
starting to take off, the Pre-Pay. I am an understanding individual, I
can see that some products may warrant a drastic measure such as this,
but it is going too far. First, we have phase5 asking for pre orders
for the new G-3 based cards. Thats fine, hardware is expensive and
their funds were depleted by an earlier, uhm, boo boo. Since it worked
for them, some other hardware producers have followed the lead. But,
this deal about Fusion and PCx?? Oh, give me a break! Sometimes,
companies just need to take a chance. I might pre-order some hardware,
but not an emulator. Did the original version of Fusion do well? Did
they make a profit? With the new G-3s coming, I don't see how they
could insult us so. Where is it going to stop? Am I going to have to
pre-pay for my next pair of shoes before they are made? I'm sorry if I
am too loud, but this is too much. I have an A1200(infinitiv tower)
040/32m, and an A3000 that is waiting for a G-3.
 Anyway, Brad, thank you so much for continuing to produce a fine
newsletter. I read it often, and share the content (and the text
files) with my non-i-net friends.

Until H&P needs 700 pre-orders for os3.6,
Dave
~~~~~~

Dave,
 On balance, I agree with you. I doubt I'd ever do a pre-pay just
because it almost feels like blackmail. By the way, you'll have a long
wait before you find a pre-pay from Haage & Partner. They've gone on
record as stating they don't approve of the procedure, so "OS 3.6"
should be free of it. Good for them!
 Brad

Brad,

 I have a Gateway Win95 box at home (in addition to my A3000 and
A4000). My internal IDE Zip drive on that machine failed, such that
you would insert a disk, the drive would start clicking slowly, and
nothing else would happen. Gateway replaced it for free.

 This was discussed briefly in MaximumPC magazine, in an interview
with Zip's president. He acknowledge the problem, which seems to have
been fixed.

 Sincerely,
John

P.S. - I am quite grateful for Amiga Update - thanks!
~~~~~~
Hi John,
 Glad you're enjoying the Update, and thanks for your information.
There is also much information on the net. Point a web browser at any
good search engine and look for "Zip" and "click of death". It's
amazing how many turn up. Our thanks to all the readers who sent us
the URLs of their "favorite" Zip COD sites.
 Brad

{The following was posted to the net recently by Amiga President Jim
Collas. We think you'll find his words very interesting. Brad}

> feel free to start a thread here and we shall do our best to give
> you the answers you seek, and we shall try to keep it on topic wont
> we people .......

 How can I refuse such a request? I have many postings and emails
about the critical features like CPU, multimedia capabilities, 3D
graphics performance, etc. Even though I am a bit rusty from years as
a large corporate executive, I have extensive experience as a hardware
designer focused on advanced computer architecture so I think I
understand these basic requirements. Putting the mainstream features
aside, I would like feedback on 3 targeted areas:

 1) I would really like some feedback on our overall strategy. I have
outlined our strategy in my last two postings in the executive update
section on our web page. I would like people to read these and give me
some feedback. Focus on the creation of a integrated, networked, and
distributed computing environment supporting powerful multimedia
computers and easy-to-use information appliances. Keep in mind that we
are using the emerging Information Appliance market to build momentum
for a new platform.

 2) I would also like some input on our implementation strategy. We
have spent the last four months researching technology and identifying
the best technology available in the world. Many top companies have
spent billions of $ generating some very exciting technology.
Technology like Java, Jini, QNX, Linux, new CPUs, graphics chips,
audio, etc. Our plan is to integrate the best technology in the world
into a new exciting computer platform focused on the future. We will
do this using Amiga developed object technology, GUI interfaces,
industry standards (PCI, USB, etc)and custom hardware. The resulting
platform will be revolutionary in nature allowing people to do things
they can't do with other computers. This is in the spirit of the Amiga
brand and the original Amiga computer. We will also offer a degree of
backwards compatibility with the current Amiga.

 3) The QNX kernel is very similar to the Linux kernel since they are
both variations of Unix. Because of this, we can leverage Linux device
drivers and even some applications. What do people think of leveraging
resources in the Linux community. They are the other great "non-MS"
community. This could help us accelerate our schedule. Remember that
the O/S kernel is only a small part of our software and overall
architecture. We still have Amiga GUI, Amiga objects, custom device
drivers, advanced networking, and the hardware architecture.

 This is enough for now. One more note, I will be traveling on
business for several days and won't have a chance to check this thread
until this upcomming week-end. I will look forward to the responses.

Sincerely,
Jim

I haven't read Ben's write up yet but I don't recall saying anything to
the effect that the new Amiga will just be a high-end PC. This isn't an
accurate statement if you are referring to a Wintel PC. The new Amiga
will be very different than a Wintel PC. The only elements we will
share are industry standards like PCI, USB, etc. These are computer
industry standards and not Wintel PC standards. I think it's obvious
why we need to support good industry standards when possible. CPU and
core chipset will definitely be different and we are still evaluating
graphics alternatives. The O/S, GUI, APIs, software structure, etc.
will all be completely different. The new Amiga will be as similar to a
Wintel PC as the Apple Mac is.

> I didn't have Wintel in mind: I think it will take after the PC
> in that it will be using standard components.

 Thanks for the clarification. Our plan is to integrate the most
impressive emerging technologies into a unique and exciting solution.
There are many great companies working on exciting technology for next
generation computers in general. Many of the companies are only
working on pieces of the solution and don't know exactly how to bring
their technology to market. Our value is to pull it all together. We
are also looking at ways to emulate parts of the original Amiga at
lower levels. Once we release more information I think Amigans will be
very excited about the new Amiga.

 I understand. I can't comment on this without disclosing more than I
should at this time. This is tough for me also since I am personally
anxious to share more with the Amiga community. We will have more
details at WoA and AmiWest.

25th June 1999

 AmigaFest 99 (formerly referred to as Amiga Expo 99) at the Dayton
Computerfest®, one of the country's largest computer shows, will be
held at Hara Arena in Dayton, Ohio on 28 & 29 August. It is a show not
to be missed for Amiga users and the excitement continues to grow.

 O.S. 3.5 is to be formally released the weekend before AmigaFest 99
at the Amiga Show in Australia. While it will go on sale in North
America at the same time, AmigaFest 99 will be the first Computer Show
here where it will be available. We are seeing a lot of new products
being announced now and this will be the first opportunity for the
users to see them and for the developers and manufacturers to display
them in the eastern half of the country. Don't miss this opportunity!

 This show is being fully supported by Amiga. They have kindly
supplied some items for prizes to be given away. We have two Amiga
1200s and several Mice, Pads, and posters to give away. We are also in
discussion with Amiga Inc. executives about the possiblity of their
attendance. Don't miss this opportunity either!

 AmigaFest 99 is a unique opportunity for Amiga Users:

 o It will provide you an opportunity to see and purchase all of the
new Amiga products.
 o It will provide you access to a concentration of Amiga Vendors so
you can get the Amiga gear you need/want, often at special show
prices.
 o It will provide you access to an incredible selection of general
computer equipment such as drives, storage media, printers, etc., at
incredible prices. 4. As with all Amiga Shows, the opportunity to
spend time socializing with fellow Amiga Users and Luminaries.

 An Amiga Get Together off-site, since there are no facilities except
snack bars at Hara Arena, is in the planning stages for Saturday
night. It will be informal at a facility where we can dine together
with a social time following. It will be pay as you go, order your own
meals and other refreshments. No formal presentations, unless we have
visitors from Amiga, who would be welcome to speak to the gathering.

 We planning two Amiga forums in the seminar rooms. Additional Amiga
presentations are welcome, however, we must commit the rooms before
others do. Anyone desiring to give a presentation at the show please
contact Ron Schwartz as soon as possible so we can get the rooms
committed.

 The exhibitors that are currently committed to AmigaFest 99 include:

   o Compuquick Media Center
   o FWD Computers
   o Dan's Deals
   o E. S. Productions
   o AmiTech-Dayton
   o AMICON

Tentative exhibitors:

   o Nova Design

 We have also had initial contact from other vendors, some individuals
considering a table to sell some of their old gear, and several User
Groups. Vendors, Developers, User Groups and individuals considering
exhibiting, demonstrating, or selling, there is no better place than
AmigaFest 99/Computerfest®. Cost is only $60 per table and that gives
you access to 30,000 attendees. It is surprising too, how many of
those are Amiga Users who are not in the mainstream and do not get the
magazines or go to the Amiga shows, but come here to get the bargain
equipment. It is also amazing how many people with little money find
what they can afford in a PC is useless, but an old Amiga, for cheap,
is still capable of doing amazing things.

 AmigaFest 99 at Computerfest® is a unique opportunity both for the
user as well as the vendors and other exhibitors. It's a great time to
be an Amiga supporter. Don't miss this opportunity to spread the word!
SEE YOU IN DAYTON!!

 Play Co-CEO and Visionary Paul Montgomery
 1960 - 1999, Earth
 1999 -     , Elsewhere

 June 21, 1999 - Rancho Cordova, CA - Paul Montgomery, Co-CEO of Play
Incorporated, died of a sudden heart attack late Saturday night while
vacationing with his wife in Seattle. Mr. Montgomery, 39, served as
President, Co-CEO and a member of the board of directors since
co-founding Play with his partner Mike Moore in 1994. Mr. Montgomery
is survived by his wife, Michele, his parents and siblings as well as
his extended family of friends at Play and throughout the industry.

 "This is an overwhelming loss both for Play and for the entire
industry. Paul was a visionary leader and a tremendous force shaping
the future of video, communications and the Internet," said Mike
Moore, Mr. Montgomery's partner and Co-CEO, "To his family, friends,
and co-workers he was a boundless source of wisdom, love and creative
energy. Beyond those he touched personally, Paul shaped the lives of
millions of people through the ideas, technologies and products he
championed into existence."

 "Paul will continue to touch millions more people through the teams
he molded and the powerful visions he seeded here at Play. Paul often
said, 'The best way to predict the future is to invent it.' Today, his
loving friends, partners and co-workers at Play proudly dedicate
ourselves to honoring Paul's memory by continuing forward to invent
the future he so passionately believed in."

 Prior to starting Play, Paul Montgomery was instrumental in launching
the desktop video industry. In 1986, Mr. Montgomery left his position
as a product manager at industry leader Electronic Arts to join a
fledgling company called NewTek. Mr. Montgomery's work catapulted
NewTek from a garage startup to one of the most influential companies
in video. In 1987, Mr. Montgomery and his co-workers conceived a new
kind of video production tool which Mr. Montgomery dubbed the Video
Toaster. The Video Toaster is now widely credited with launching the
desktop video industry and resulted in a Prime Time Emmy Award for Mr.
Montgomery and the Toaster team in 1992.

 In 1994 Mr. Montgomery left NewTek, and later that year founded Play
Incorporated with partner Mike Moore and a close-knit team of former
co-workers. Together, Mr. Montgomery and Mr. Moore developed a unique
corporate culture based on self-organizing teams and creatively
nurturing environments. This innovative leadership has made Play one
of the most successful and highly-respected companies in the high-tech
industry. In the 1996 book, 'The Age of Videography', Mr. Montgomery
was cited as one of the 25 most influential people in the history of
video. Mr. Montgomery and Mr. Moore were named recently by Wired
Magazine as two of the most influential people in the future of
Hollywood.

 This week Play will launch a memorial website dedicated to Mr.
Montgomery where the millions of people he touched can gather to
celebrate his life and achievements. The site will be reachable
through a link on the Play Incorporated site. Photos and written
memories may be emailed to: ThanksPaul@play.com or sent to: Thanks
Paul, Play Incorporated, 2890 Kilgore Rd. Rancho Cordova, CA
95670-6133.

 Play Incorporated was founded in 1994 by a team of well-known
computer and video industry pioneers with the goal of bringing
high-end video and graphics capabilities to PCs and the Internet.
Among its award-winning products are the Snappy Video Snapshot, the
best-selling video peripheral in history, Trinity, which
revolutionized TV production and graphics throughout the world, Gizmos
98, PC Magazine's 1998 Product of the Year and Electric Image, the
low-cost 3D animation software used to create spectacular visual
effects for the recently released Star Wars and Austin Powers films.

 Georg Hoermann has decided to discontinue VirusZ II. The good news is
that he is going to keep updating the xvs.library and VirusZ III.
VirusZ II was and always will be a very good virus killer, because the
brain of VZ II is the xvs.library. Now Virus Help Denmark has recieved
the source code of VZ II and they are looking for someone to develop
and improve VZ II. If you think you´re the right person for this job,
send e-mail to vht-dk@post4.tele.dk telling about you and why we
should give you the source code of VZ II. If Georg Hoermann and Virus
Help Denmark think you are OK, you ´ll get the source via snail mail
soon.

26 Jun 19999

 It has now been quite some time since news first came out about the
BoXeR, a fully Amiga compatible motherboard being produced by Access
Information. In that time the project has suffered various delays,
some to do with the problematic situation in the Amiga market, and
others to do with a desire to improve the specification of the
product.

 At last BoXeR is nearing completion. The final board design is due to
enter prototyping within the next few days, and a prototype board
should be on display at the stand of distributor Blittersoft at the
World of Amiga show in London on the 24th to 25th of July. It is quite
likely that the board will not be fully functional by the time of the
show.

 Updated specification

 The main reason for the delays in BoXeR is a radical redesign which
will provide a significantly more up-to-date and powerful motherboard
than has been previously announced. The board pictured here was the
original motherboard design intended to be a modernised A4000 - the
new BoXeR contains a far more powerful feature set, close to what had
been mooted for the BoXeR 2 in the past.

 Probably the most obvious improvement is the inclusion on the
motherboard of 4 fully active PCI slots, which will enable BoXeR
owners to expand their machine with cheap but powerful PCI cards.
Although we will have to wait and see which cards will have drivers
written for them, we can expect to see SCSI cards, cheap 100MBit
Ethernet, powerful soundcards, internal modems and low cost but
phenomenally powerful graphics cards such as the Voodoo Banshee which
provides better than BlizzardVisionPPC performance for well under
£100. However the improvements do not stop there.

 High speed DMA I/O transfer means that most peripherals will work at
high speeds with lower CPU overheads - you'll be able to use fast
serial and parallel devices, UDMA hard drives and so on. This, along
with ATX formfactor, DIMM sockets and PS/2 peripheral compatibility,
will make the BoXeR a very powerful and cheap to expand system.

 BoXeR is also designed to bring the more specifically Amiga aspects
of the architecture up to date. The thing that is most likely to
please and surprise the Amiga faithful is that the BoXeR has a highly
integrated single chip replacement for the AGA chipset, which is
feature compatible but will include significant enhancements,
including for the first time a total removal of the Chip RAM barrier.
A 64 bit wide connector for a PowerPC expansion card will also allow a
cheap solution for future upgrades to G3 or even G4 processors.

The latest specifications for the BoXeR motherboard are as follows:

 o 100% Amiga compatible.
 o ATX motherboard based on Amiga technology - fits in standard PC
   Desktop/Tower case..
 o Motorola 68040 or 68060 at 25-75MHz supported in a single processor
   socket..
 o Highly integrated single chip chip-set, AGA feature compatible but
   with performance enhancements..
 o Most peripherals support high speed DMA transfers, increasing
   throughput while reducing processor overhead..
 o No CHIP RAM limits..
 o 2 x DIMM sockets for combined use as FAST/CHIP..
 o Dual IDE Hard disk interface, supports fast IDE modes..
 o Flash ROM 2Mb, 32 bit wide. Used for boot ROM's and resident
   modules..
 o Hi-Density floppy disk drive interface, uses standard PC floppy
   drives..
 o CD-ROM audio input connector and mixer..
 o Real Time Clock..
 o Keyboard port for standard low cost PC PS/2 keyboard..
 o Mouse port for standard low cost PC PS/2 mouse..
 o 4 x Active PCI slots..
 o Amiga Video slot..
 o Expansion connector to support 5xZorro 3 slots..
 o Connector for full 64-bit PowerPC expansion card..

Connectors :

 o Printer port..
 o RGB video..
 o PS/2 Keyboard..
 o PS/2 Mouse..
 o Serial port..
 o Amiga Joystick port..
 o Stereo audio..
 o IDE - 40 pin (Dual) header.

 AmiDog's Movie Player

 - The worlds fastest Movie Player for your PPC equiped Amiga!

 Another release with some new cool (?) features! IMPORTANT: I've
changed the way the prefs file looks, so your old file won't work
anymore!

 o New features:
 o Frameskip (AMP automatically skips B-frames when required).
 o Seeking (just hold down the right mouse button and move the mouse
 left/right).
 o Uses my AsyncIOPPC (WarpUP) routines for faster playback (+10%).
 o 15bit now also uses direct gfxmem access.
 o New way of defining the prefs, you can also use GetBestMode,
 Requester or PAL.


 o Removed bugs:
 o CGFX support only worked on 8/16/32bit screens.
 o AMP did crash if the MPEG had audio and reported 0kHz as the
 samplerate.
 o If the MPEG reports size 0x0, AMP assumes 352*288.
 o There used to be no way of setting the default path.


 o Known bugs:
 o None.


 o Features to be added (in no particular order):
 o Custom playback size.
 o Window playback.
 o More speed.
 o AVI/QT/ANIM/FLI/FLC... support.

 Please don't contact me about problems that are described above!
Thanks!

Trogladite Software


Workshops: Trogladite Software "AmigaSchool" nun online
Bei der "AmigaSchool" gibt es online Workshops zu bestimmten Themen, damit der Umgang mit einzelnen Anwendungen erarbeitet werden kann. Zur Zeit stehen online Workshops zum Thema Cinema4D und Photogenics zur Verfügung. Weitere werden folgen.

Die Idee ist dabei anhand konkreter Beispiele in die Benutzung verschiedener Anwendungsprogramme einzuführen und damit die Lücken zu füllen, die die mitgelieferte Dokumentation hinterläßt. Eine Beschränkung auf bestimmte Softwarebereiche gibt es dabei nicht, sondern man plant u.a. die Gebiete 2D- und 3D-Grafik, Audio-Bearbeitung, Textverarbeitung, Tabellenkalkulation usw. abzudecken.

Die beiden bisherigen englischsprachigen Workshops sind reichlich bebildert, leicht verständlich und gehen Schritt für Schritt vor. Der Cinema4D-Artikel, von Pam Jones, beschreibt die Erzeugung einer einfachen, animierten Textur und der Text von Andrew McCombe, zu Photogenics, die Einfärbung eines Graustufenbildes.

Die beiden Workshops sind relativ kurz stellen aber auch erst den Anfang der AmigaSchool dar. So werden für die Seite weitere Kurse gesucht. Wer Lust hat welche beizusteuern kann sie an instantprint@allcomm.co.uk schicken.

In eigener Sache


Zusammenarbeit zwischen Power-Brei Magazin und amiga-news.de :-)
Die Amiga News in der jetzigen Form sind ja in der Regel nur Hinweise und Titel, ohne große Erklärungen, um was es genau geht. In Zukunft wird Sven Drieling (Herausgeber des Power-Brei Magazins) interessante News redaktionell aufarbeiten und tiefergehende Informationen zum Thema veröffentlichen. Den Link finden Sie jeweils unter der eigentlichen Nachricht Zusätzliche Informationen (SD). Die oben folgende Nachricht können Sie gleich als Beispiel benutzen. Bitte berücksichtigen Sie, daß der Link in der Regel erst später nachgetragen wird. Also hin- und wieder mal nach unten scrollen.

Durch die Zusammenarbeit der Power-Brei werden die News wesentlich informativer und attraktiver und dafür bedanke ich mich ganz herzlich bei Sven :-).

Sven Drieling schreibt über unsere Zusammenarbeit:
Die Zusammenarbeit mit den Amiga-News von Petra Struck erleichtert dem Power-Brei-Team die tägliche Arbeit beträchtlich. Durch den Zeitgewinn können die aktuellen Meldungen zum einen konzentrierter geschrieben werden und zum anderen fallen die großen zeitlichen Lücken des Power-Brei Newstickers weg. Zudem ist es jetzt auch wieder möglich, regelmäßig Artikel für die verschiedene Rubriken des Power-Brei Magazins zu schreiben, die sich mit dem Themen Soft- und Hardware, Programmierung, TV, Musik und Literatur sowie Geschichten beschäftigen.

Newsticker von COOL bits
Eine MPEG Audio Encoder-Decoder Software ist erschienen:
Encoder CD 69,- DM

Dieser läuft ab einem 030`er Prozessor (wenn man sich das antun will:-) ), unterstützt aber auch die PPC Prozessoren. Weitere Infos auf unserer News-Seite (Titellink).

Am 29.06.1999 erwarte ich die erste Lieferung von Wasted Dreams CD (79,- DM). Nach endlosen Verzögerungen ist diese Spiel endlich im Zulauf:-)))))

Weitere Informationen zu Software, die Mitte Juli erscheinen soll könnt Ihr unsrer Newsseite entnehmen.

Martin, herzlichen Glückwunsch zum Meistertitel :-). Ich weiß, daß ihm eine arge Paukerei vorausging. (ps)

Installanleitung für LinuxPPC V5
Olli schreibt:
Auf meiner Webseite gibt es jetzt, nach einem kleinen Umbau, eine Installanleitung für das hervorragende LinuxPPC V5 auf dem Amiga. Natürlich gibt es die auf den Amiga zugeschnittene LinuxPPC-CD V5 mit Installer auch zum Bestellen (500 MB Daten).

Ansonsten gibts eine glibc2- Version von BasiliskII zum Downloaden. Laut www.sheepshaver.com befindet sich die Sheepshaver-LinuxPPC-Version im Betatest-es dauert also nicht mehr lange. Sheepshaver wird auch nur ab LinuxPPC V5 laufen! (ps)

News von der Schatztruhe
Die Schatztruhe GmbH verkauft die letzten Exemplare des Amiga Guru Books von Ralph Babel, der Programmiererbibel für den Amiga. Es sind nur noch sehr begrenzte Stückzahlen verfügbar, wobei jedoch alle Exemplare leichte Wasserschäden aufweisen, die die Lesbarkeit und den Nutzen des Buches nicht einschränken. Aus diesem Grund wurde der Preis für diese letzten verfügbaren Guru Books (nur in Englisch erhältlich) auf DM 59,- gesenkt.

Wer also noch keins hat, sollte jetzt zugreifen, denn lange werden sie nicht mehr verfügbar sein und eine Neuauflage dieses Buches ist nicht geplant!

Weitere Infos über das Gurubuch finden sich unter http://www.schatztruhe.de/softe/gurubook.html. (ps)
