Pencil and paper game: Cropky
Cropky is an Amiga version of Dots - an abstract strategy game played by two people on a sheet of squared paper.

The rules are a bit different from original Dots game - your aim is not to capture enemy dots but to link two dots together with a line drawn in any direction you want as long as you don't cross already existing lines or you have to draw another line (the dot is visible not farther than one square distance - vertically, horizontally or diagonally).

Cropky is a conversion of a game under the same title for Atari XL/XE. The original idea comes from Krzysztof 'Kaz' Ziembik who was persuaded to give permission to create Amiga version by Mariusz 'Ramos' Rozwadowski. With the abilities and knowledge of Adam Stach (programmer), Piotr 'Piesiu' Radecki (graphics) and Piotr 'Pece' Cieślik (music) they created a game running on any Amiga with at least 1 MB of RAM. The game can be downloaded as ADF file or LHA archive. The manual so far is Polish only. (snx)

Indivision AGA Mk2: Config Tool 1.1, Core 2.6
Individual Computers has released an update for the configuration tool of the scandoubler Indivision AGA Mk2. With this update it is now possible to save complete configurations and to switch back to the last saved configuration with the Undo-function.

Additionally a software update of the "core" of the scandoubler was released which fixes some bugs:
  • Counters for upper and lower padding areas have been corrected: The number of lines on the output side is now correct, even if black borders need to be added at the top and bottom.
  • if the output side has reached the end of pixel data in memory, it has ended the line prematurely. This lead to an unexpected increase of output frequencies. These new cores now insert black pixels until the user-set number of output pixels is reached. In other words: Even if you enter an insanely large output window that the Amiga does not output, the frequency that the config tool displays will be met.
  • the blue colour component was shifted to the right - fixed in this core.
  • the lower 4 bits of the green colour component was taken from the neighbouring pixel, which is also fixed in V2.6.
  • the critical path of pixel data going into and out of the memory chip has been shortened: The flickering vertical red line does not appear any more.
  • some power settings of the FPGA were way too high. These have been reduced to the required minimum, so the FPGA does not crash any more when higher pixel clocks are being used.
  • the two rightmost pixels of the screen were not displayed at all, which is corrected in V2.6. If you still see a vertical red line at the right border, then this is an indicator that you are trying to view a part of the screen that is already way outside the overscan area. Although the Amiga does not output this line the way that Indivision dosplays it, we will NOT fix this. Instead, you should set the output window size to a sane amount of pixels that comes halfway close to what the Amiga is generating. Another way of fixing that red line is to use the tool Borderblank: This will also get rid of the red line.
