  • Negative checkmark (if scanner supports it)
  • Auto suffix adding switch
  • Overwrite ask switch

IRC-Client: WookieChat 2.12 Beta 8

James 'jahc' Carroll has published an update of his MUI-based IRC-client WookieChat (AmigaOS 3/4, MorphOS, AROS). The changes are listed in the Changelog.

Instant Messenger: SabreMSN 0.56

James 'jahc' Carroll has also updated his MUI-based MSN-messenger SabreMSN which is available for AmigaOS 3/4 and AROS. Changes in version 0.56:
  • "contact has added you to his list, add them to your own contacts list?" stuff was broken in last release. Just crashed.
  • Header messages are ignored now. So irrelvant stuff will be filtered out from the chat. This one goes out to Kicko! hehe. Let me know if it goes okay.

Real-time strategy: Exodus under AmigaOS 4.1

"crack" described in a guide how to get worked the real-time strategy game Exodus: The last War under AmigaOS 4.1.

Update of the arcade game BOH

Simone Bevilacqua has updated the commercial arcade game BOH:
  • makes the game run natively on Linux (requires an x86 CPU, SDL 1.2 and SDL_mixer-1.2);
  • avoids the restart of the whole program upon theme change (very useful when playing in full screen, as the monitor does not need to re-sync);
  • adds themes randomization options;
  • adds the "USE ENHANCED WEAPONS" option (makes killing enemies easier);
  • slows down the blinking of the automapper direction indicator;
  • adds video mode suggestions;
  • fixes a minor bug in the zoom selection handling (in rare cases it could cause an illegal memory access);
  • fixes bad centering at 4x zoom (a couple of parentheses were missing);
  • links the AmigaOS version to the latest SDL;
  • links the Windows version to a fresh build of the custom framework (by mistake an outdated framework had been used with the consequence that, on some machines, input handling was partially broken);
  • includes some graphical retouches to the themes "castle" and "warm";
  • adds synopses to the phases of the mission "tougher and tougher";
  • updates and improves the user's manual;
  • improves some translations;
  • some other changes.

Additionally a Linux port of BOH was published. (cg) (Translation: (dr)

OnyxSoft: Annotate 2.6.3, CodeAudio 3.01, MultiRen 1.68, Onyx Prelude 1.2

Annotate is a text editor for AmigaOS 4 which was originally written in 1993 by Doug Bakewell and which was now updated by OnyxSoft. The changes are listed in the Readme.

CodeAudio, previously known as TheMPegEncGUI, is a graphical user-interface for MP3- and other encoders (flac, faad, ogg) which makes it more easy to convert CDs into MP3-files with an optional wizard.

MultiRen is a MUI-base program with which many files can be renamed simultaneously. There is also a special plugin for MP3-files.

Onyx Prelude is a mixer-preferences-program for the soundcards Prelude Z2 and Prelude 1200. (snx) (Translation: (dr)
