AMIGA 2001: IRC conferences with Nerding and Garlich (Update)
English logfiles of the IRC conferences with Markus Nerding from Haage&Partner and Michael Garlich from Titan are available now. The log from Nerdings chat has been published on ANN, he answers questions about AmigaOS XL, AmigaOS V4.0, and H&P's work within those projects.

The log of Michael Garlich's chat has been provided to us by Jürgen 'Antibike' Lucas, Garlich answers questions about MorphOS, Pegasos, and the projects of Titan:

Amiga2001: Hello Michael

Titan: Hello Guys

Nico4k: Micheal, Could please describe your plans about MorphOS/Bplan ?

Nico4k: Plan = project if you prefer

Titan: Yes of course we have presented 4 new products for Morphos / Bplan e.g. Papyrus Office and

Nico4k: For example will Papyrus be ported on MorphOs ?

Nico4k: ok

Titan: and the new videosoft Motionstudio which support DV Video

Titan: and we have also presented Rage Hard a new multiplayer tactic shooter

Nico4k: Well, you said on MorphOS ML what there will something to connect an Amiga floppy drive on Bplan made by third part, Could you give more detail ?

Nico4k: Titan sound like great news

Titan: Yes, this connecter will be able to read write "old" Amiga DD and HD Floppydisc

Nico4k: to connect an "Amgia" drive or to use old disk with the Bplan one

Nico4k: Where it will connected on the motherboard ?

Titan: to connect an "old" Amiga drive may be later also PC-Floppy with modifications too

zacman: hi michael. do you plan to release your software together with the pegasos start or already before? and are there plans for bundeling your software with pegasos?

Titan: Nico4k there is a floppy connector for PC Floppys on the Bplan mainboard

Titan: zacman: Together with the sales start on Feb/March 2002

Burman: Titan Do you know anything about support for Newtek VideoToaster/Flyer HW. (PCI-card)...?

Titan: Burman: we have asked Newtek but nothing is clear atm it will take some further negotations ga

djnick: Hi Titan will there be newer / improved versions of Fantastic Dreams?

Titan: djnick: Yes this will be released later in 2002 ga

ID4: Titan Are you planign a game like QIII Arena?

Titan: ID4: We will release a pre-video of Rage Hard take a look and you will enjoy it :) ga

Bifford: hi there ;-) what sort of speeds can we expect from pegasos? in normal operation and in real-time with cpu hungry things like 3d graphics

Titan: Bifford: This really depends on the used CPU we think for DV Videoediting a 500 G4 is the minimum. ga

Nico4k: As you devellop for MorphOS/bPlan, I suppose you already use it on Bplan, So how does it work ? (sorry for all this MOS related question but I want to konw)

Titan: Nico4k It runs really good we are sadisfied with the support of the MOrphos Team. ga

AlphaFoX: hi Titan, two questions: 1. do you know if there will be an 'AGA-on-a-Card' for the Pegasos? 2. Will

Titan: port its software also to AmigaOS 4.x if available? GA

Titan: AlphaFoX: AGA card is atm not longer in development but if there is more demand we can think about such a solution

Titan: Regarding AmigaOS 4 we have nothing heard from Amiga no specs no hardware nothing simply. We cant say we will support it if we have no information at all. Ga

Bifford: do u have any other projects on the go atm (hard or software) or is it strictly MOS/pegasos ?

Titan: Bifford: we concentrate on what is available now this is Morphos and Pegasos ga

zacman: what graphics card do you recommend for games like Rage Hard? Do you know if it is correct that bplan has contacts to nvidia?

Titan: zacman: I cant commend this atm :) ga

Zarf: is RS on the show? ga :)

Titan: Zarf: No but Frank Mariak was here ga

TheFab: Titan hi, do you plan to develop new softare or buy license (like old software like lightwave...)

Titan: TheFab: new and licencing too. E.g. AlienNations and Majesty

ID4: Titan Will you software run on Elbox SharkPPC?

Titan: ID4: We are open to support everyone who wants Morphos. If Elbox support theMorphos team with hardware then there will be also a SharkPPC version ga

Zefram_: what is the maximum cpu speed we can expect on Pegasos, 1Ghz ?

Titan: Zefram_: its upto 2GHz atm but higher clockrate are also possible ga

zacman: isn't AlienNations and Majesty licensed by hyperion?

Titan: zacman: No Hyperion has not licenced AlienN or Majesty.

Titan: owns this licence ga

Zefram_: What will are the graphics cards drivers available for Pegasos, Matrox ?

Titan: Zefram_: In a few weeks there will be update on with all supported Gfx-boards. ga

Nico4k: Do you think Bplan will be able to release Pegasos in February/March 2001? Not a vapor this time ? (I have been so disppointed by previous project: AmigaNG, A1). Ps: A MOS/Bplan related question again ... But who do not believe that this time is the good one ...

Titan: Nico4k Bplan will make a pre-release before christmas 2001 and the main release is trageted for March 2002. ga

Titan: Zefram_: The morphos 3d api is NOT rave ga

Nico4k: Pre-release means Developper release ?

Titan: Nico4k Also for normal customers but there is only a limited stock of boards available. ga

AmiGR: Could you enlight us about which 3d api will be used?

Titan: AmiGR: Sorry atm not, please wait for the next official Morphos press release ga

JoeAFUA: Titan So will we be able to pre-order for the pre-release boards? If yes, when?

Titan: JoeAFUA: Take a look on the bplan website there will be an "order" form. ga

ID4: Titan nowdays.. What are your contacs with Amiga Inc?

Titan: ID4: we are in touch with Amiga but they follow different ways atm. We will see if we can cooparate in future or not. ga

Zefram_: Will it be possible to place a pre-order from local dealers ?

Titan: Zefram_: No, only direct from Bplan ga

darklite: will you only support morphos, or also os4? ga

Titan: darklite: We have no information about AmigaOS4 therefore i cant say yes or no . ga

ID4: Titan THANKS !!!! From me no more questions, I hope the best for your bussines ;)

Titan: ID4: Thanks. ga

Nico4k: Will Pegasos be shit with screen, keyboard, Hard drive, Or will it be possible to buy only the Motherboard ?

Amiga2001: ship instead of shit ;-)

Titan: Nico4k shit ??? ;)) Yes it will be shipped as complete system too this will be a g3 350, 128MB ram, gfx-board,hD and DVD-drive ga

Zefram_: Will there be a Pegasos motherboard with more than 3 PCI slots ?

Titan: Nico4k and motherboard only is also available .ga

Titan: Zefram_: Yes there is a adaptor for 4 slots available.

Nico4k: Are all drivers ready (I mean for internal ethernet, audio, USB ???)

Titan: Nico4k a lot of drivers are already finished but some are still in development. ga

Amiga2001: more questions?

Nico4k: Will we show amazing think on Bplan at the show like Divx movie ?
