amiga-news.de


amiga-news.de currently reworked
We are switching the website completely to SSI (Server Side Includes). Therefore some links to subpages might not yet work perfectly. In this case, the "Home Button" does however always bring you back to the main page. We hope to finish the change tonight (December 17th). Tomorrow we will be back with the news.

Epic Marketing


Epic Marketing News
Did you enjoy the charming adventures of little Simon as much as we did? Did you always hope for the successor to be ported to Amiga? Have you been mad because this great game was only available for PC? Now there is the opportunity to change this...

Epic Marketing got the license to port Simon The Sorcerer II to Amiga. On the one hand, we are of course very proud to get the opportunity to port this great adventure to the Amiga. But with the latest ongoings at Amiga (Inc) we have to ask ourselves how many Amiga users at all are interested in a first class game? The license, the porting and the production of SImon The Sorcerer II won't be cheap. So we decided to do a pre-order campaign. We need 500 pre-orders to do Simon The Sorcerer II for Amiga. When we reach the 500 limit, the game should be available in 8 weeks.

We will update the pre-order data on our homepage weekly. Simon The Sorcerer will run on all AGA or gfx board systems with 030 CPU and sufficient memory (about 8 MB fast). The game will only be released on CD.

Please place your pre-orders here:
Online: order@epic-marketing.de

Amiga games wish list
Andreas Magerl writes:
On our homepage, area "Aktion", you'll find a form for entering your top 5 wish list for games on Amiga. The submissions are evaluated regulary, and published in each issue of Amiga Future and our homepage.

Of course it only makes sense if enough users participate. The idea is to show coders and companies over a long timespan which games are wanted by Amiga users. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

AmigaOS 3.5 - self-made fix for broken AGA buttons
Michaela Prüß writes:
For all those who still have the problem with AWeb 3 SE (OS 3.5), or probably all other AWeb versions, too, that there are some colored dots instead of the buttons at the top: There is a way to fix it (already reported to amiga.de):

Load images/def_buttons in a graphics program (I did it with PPaint). Expand the palette from 8 to 16 colors, and copy the 8 colors to the 8 new ones. Then adjust the first 8; it doesn't matter to what, but it must not be any of the original 8 colors. With PPaint, all you have to do is commiting a color adjustment, and the buttons look like before (almost, I had to swith RED and GREEN manually). Then cut it out (preferrably more precise than I did), and save it as imags/def_buttons (back up the original, you never know...). With the 16-color version it worked on first try, and I can finally see the buttons. If someone gets it done precisely, please send me a copy - I never got the hang to paint programs...

Oh, yes, the 16 colors. Don't tell me you surf with 8 colors and it wouldn't work that way. If you surf the web with 8 colors, you should be used to looks like that...

Dennis Gronewald followed up:
There is an easy way to get rid of the gfx bugs in AWeb. Simply enter the image drawer of AWeb. Here you find the file "def_Buttons". Simply put braces around the "Transparent" tool type. Worked for me. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

New CD32 game
Andreas Etzrodt writes:
Good news: We recieved permission by Petro Tyschtschenko himself to offer CD32 games. Without license fees. Citing Petro: "Dear Andreas, we don't want to make money by that. As long as it is not commercial, it's free." Since we already distribute it as Shareware, luckily we don't face any additional costs.

By the way, many have misunderstood our first announcement. Of course we don't want to release a commercial game, with pressed CDs including cover. We want to create a runnable CD32 CD with our own CD-R. Of course it will include a cover, but only a self-printed one.

So interested CD32 owners can contact us, and probably place their pre-order. The CD will not cost more than 15 Euro, probably much less (we did not yet calculate what is possible).

Oh, and for those who missed the first announcement: We talk about the Shareware game "SHARKS!", which is available as demo version from Aminet. Most likely it will be adapted to AGA, so the hardware performance of the CD32 is used.

Source code for DESCENT 2 released!
Sascha Koebner writes:
At the title link, capable Amiga coders can download the source code for 'Descent 2' (by Interplay), and of course port it (!). 'Descent 2' is the successor of the successful 360 degree 3D shooter. The comparatively smart KI, and the heavily improved 3D engine compared to 'Descent 1' should be enough motivations for coders to try their skills at it. It seems to be the source code for the PC version 1.2. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

VersCheck V2 FINAL RELEASE
Michaela Prüß writes:
Starting immediately, VersCheck v2.19 (FINAL RELEASE) is available for download from my homepage. An Aminet upload has been submitted, it should be available there tomorrow.
FINAL RELEASE, since I need the next version of VersCheck for my Install script project, so I finished everything important that was left open or undone, and created a last update release. The next version will therefore be v3 (assuming there are no necessary bugfixes to do). What has changed?
  • Some settings can be done by ENV:
  • The whole version sensing has been reworked, being faster and safer
  • Output can optionally be done in ANSI (so important things can be highlighted)
  • A small statistic has been added
  • Some small and large fixes have been done, internal help -? updated
  • Two bad memory faults, which seldomly occured, but were there in the old version, have been detected and removed
  • Special News-Doc in the doc drawer "NewInThisVersion"
  • New .catalogs (update only German / English so far. So do the update with Installer only)
  • Internal ReqTools requesters replaced by ASL requesters. I had problems getting the old requesters to work with WarpOS and PowerUP, with numerous memory faults. The ASL requesters do work, and are 100% identical with WarpOS and PowerUP.

To all who still have my Webjump homepage in their bookmarks: Due to the bad bandwidth and continuous server downtimes, I moved the pages to http://24.132.37.25/~Gateway/, a different, very fast "free web service" (for all still looking for such, have a look at http://24.132.37.25/index.html). The old address does however link to the current page. Since I wanted it to be easier, there are direct adresses to the pages (please only use these, web layout will change shortly).
  • http://Gateway.To/Gateway5 (login with language choice)
  • http://Gateway.To/Gateway5/D (German contents)
  • http://Gateway.To/Gateway5/E (English contents)
  • NW:LGateway5 (NETWORD call) does currently NOT work with the three Amiga browsers, only with Netscape and IE. Should be implemented some time, however.

Bad availability of KatoDev
We, too, have been affected by the moving of one of the biggest providers (Xlink). The server responsible for our web pages (http), their maintenance (ftp) and e-mails (pop3) are either unavailable or offer only very low bandwidth. We ask for your patience, since we cannot switch providers fast enough.

mp3 input...
You are always looking for mp3 input, e.g. for AmigaAMP. Who still remembers the rock legend "Birth Control" and their hit "Gammaray"??? A great remake of this song has been released for free download by the original artists at www.birth-control.de/CD-gammaray90.htm (title link).
For rock fans a must-have, for techno fans a gateway to new dimensions... :-). (ps) (Translation: (unk)
