Followup to the statement concerning development of HSMathLibs
Matthias Henze writes:
In this statement I wrote that many users complained about bad support. It occured to me that many forums and mailing lists carried postings about the stormamiga.lib and the HSMathLibs. Obviously there are many questions on the subject, the answers of other users are however seldom close to the truth. Guesses, rumors, speculations and half-truths are spread, but almost nobody comes up with the idea to contact the author, me.

I cannot know every forum and mailinglist. If you have a question, a comment, criticism etc., has to tell me, and not simply complain about bad support. Questions and comments on the subject please by e-mail to Matthias_Henze@CyberdyneSystems.de. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

Nightlong is coming
clickBOOM's Millennium Madness continues --

the biggest Amiga game ever will be ready very soon, so it's time to show you more of it.

We have prepared the Nightlong movie trailer to whet your appettite while waiting for the game. It's a cool teaser to show what the game looks like in motion. Mind you, it's in low res, and not too long so it wouldn't take forever to download.
You'll have to try to imagine it at 640x480 16-bit gfx and 16-bit sound. :)

Full specs for Nightlong will be available in a few days. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

Fake Warning!
The latest Aminet upload of "VersionWB" (3.0) in util/sys is a fake. In the program itself, (probably) only the version number has been changed, the file has the same size as the current v2.12. The archive has been expanded by some "jokes".

Håkan Parting, author of VersionWB, writes:
If you have installed the fake version, please remove it again and replace the VersionWB command with the original. If the fake contains a virus is not yet known. Download the original: VersionWB2_12.lha. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

Lambda - 3d space action game
In his Lambda status report Mikko says that most basic functions of the new 3D engine have been defined and implemented in OpenGL. That "Descent: Freespace" will now be ported was a slap in his face, since he begun Lambda development because there were no up-to-date 3D space action games for Amiga. After he recovered from the initial shock, he is wildly determined to make Lambda better than its pendant.

Does anybody know the e-mail address of Mikko Kallinen? If so, please send a short e-mail. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

BUGFIX Installerscript VersCheck V2
Three days ago a bug sneaked into the VersCheckV2 Installer script. For those who didn't already fix the bug on their own:
  1. The fixed archive is on my homepage, and will soon be available from Aminet too. Download: VersCheckV2.lha
  2. Only available from my homepage is a second archive containing only the Installer script. Download: VersCv2Fix1.lha - 11 Kb.
  3. For those daring enough: In line 31 of the script, a ")" is missing at the end of the line - that's it. Somehow it got lost. The Installer message says line 1163 or such, because the effect of the missing bracket is not recognized earlier.

Please participate in this small questionaire about scene-handler. I am currently working on a version for MovieShop 5.2. This is also subject of the questionaire. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

Additionally I lost the list of people having an e-mail abo of Amiga Phönix. You, too, please send me a short e-mail so I can set up the list again. APhönix. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

Amiga RC5 Team Effort News
Andreas Mayer-Gürr writes:
1.) CSC: A new PC client, twice as fast as the old one, is available.
2.) RC5: An older 68k (beta) RC5 client is available, which does not support some details of the latest client (like status bar and statistics with Myzar), but is about 30% faster. I tried it and it works very well, my 68060 does about 148 kkeys/sec instead of the 117 kkeys it did before. If you only use the client for calculating, I did not encounter problems. So:
2a.) get blocks with the latest client
2b.) calculate blocks with the beta client
2c.) submit blocks with the latest client, and continue with 2a.)... (ps) (Translation: (unk)

X-Surf network cards delivered
Jens Schönfeld writes:
This morning, the X-Surf ethernet cards have been delivered to all distributors at the same time, a full week delayed. The delay of the delivery was however not due to technical problems, but due to my car accident: I was busy handling police, insurance and the company that towed away my car (by the way, anyone interested in a Volvo 850 crash car?). Since the cards will reach customers before christmas, however, I think I can be pardoned, can I? (ps) (Translation: (unk)

Cloanto Releases Amiga Forever Holiday Bundle: New ROMs & MP3s
For all Amiga emulation enthusiasts who ever wondered what Workbench 1.0 looked like, or what the late Jay Miner, "Father of the Amiga", has to say in his own voice about the Amiga and other interesting issues, Cloanto just released the Amiga Forever Plus Pack, which contains new Amiga ROM, Workbench and MP3 audio files! The Plus Pack joins the Amiga Forever family of emulation and support products, which are officially licensed by Gateway's Amiga companies.

Only for the next few days, the Online Edition of Amiga Forever 3.0 (stand-alone) and the Amiga Forever Plus Pack are available in a special holiday bundle for a special price.

The Amiga Forever Holiday Bundle includes the Amiga Forever Online Edition package, with its preinstalled Amiga emulation environment (1.3 and 3.1 Amiga ROM and OS) and the Amiga Explorer networking software, plus the following new items, which are part of the Plus Pack:


  • Amiga Workbench ADF files v. 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, 2.04 and 2.1
  • Amiga ROM files v. 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 and 2.04 (WB 2.1 uses 2.04 ROM)
  • Jay Miner MP3 Track 1: Birth of the Amiga
  • Jay Miner MP3 Track 2: Computers and Society
  • Jay Miner MP3 Track 3: A New Job
  • New HTML pages, including instructions to play MP3 audio files

For download convenience, the items are archived in two files which can be downloaded separately, also with the help of an optional download wizard. It is always possible to resume an interrupted download, or to download the same file again at no additional cost. The Plus Pack is cross-platform, while Amiga Forever Online Edition is for Windows systems only.

The Amiga Forever Holiday Bundle is available now from the Amiga Forever Home Page at http://cloanto.com/amiga/forever/ (title link)
The Cloanto Team wishes all Amiga fans great holidays and a very happy New Year! (ps) (Translation: (unk)

Translator wanted!
Since the "restart" of the English pages of Amiga-News, the daily translations are a one-man-job again because Marek didn't respond so far.

I am looking for users willing (long-term) to do German - English translations regulary of all news items appearing on a given day of the week (or two), and send them to me by e-mail.

You don't need to know HTML well. If you can type <A HREF=""> and <OBJECT><UL><LI>, know the pop-up menu of your favourite browser and can handle a text editor, you qualify. :-) Oh, and you should be able to read (and understand) German. ;-)

Those interested in supporting Amiga-News this way should contact me by e-mail. (ps) (Translation: (unk)
