Crowdfunding: Mechanical Amiga-500/1200 keyboards
Similar to the project, announced by the A1200.net team, under the title link the Australian Liwei Guan offers a crowdfunding campaign for mechanical keyboards for the computers Amiga 500 and Amiga 1200.

They are meant as replacements for existing keyboards because the metal carrier and the controller are not included. Additional to the US/UK keycaps also German ones are planned - other languages will be offered if there is sufficient demand. (snx) (Translation: (dr)

Real-time strategy game: AI
Samuli Holopainen writes: AI was made for Christiandevs annual Speedgame 2019 competition where it became #1 in both categories of "Best Fun Game" (shared #1) and "Most Original Concept", in which AI scored the maximum score of 5 points. Overall ending however only at #3.

In AI you are in control of an AI sending Robots to kill Humans. There's a catch however, you cant control Robots individually, but you can only control from where and when to send Robots, and what ALL Robots will be targeting at any time and then Robots will themselves decide how to achieve it.

The version sent to the competition is not the same as this release version. This release version is worked a bit further, adding such features as Save Game (autosave), Upgrades, bug fixes, other tweaks, and the possibility to actually complete the game properly.

Notice, however, that this game does need a heavy machine, and no real AmigaOS 3.x machine is able to run this, AmigaOne X1000 or equivalent is recommended. Although if you don't mind a slower speed, then you could play this with some lower spec machines. In addition, there is also a possibility to make the speed faster for slower machines, but this happens with the cost of stability. You might be able to play this with for example lower-spec Sams but prepare for bugs then.

You can check a bit about this game (the competition version) from a video about all Speedgames.

As usual with my games, to support Indiego Appstore, this game will first be available only through Indiego Appstore. But it will be released to Aminet later as well. (snx)

Amiga floppy reader: ADF-Copy 1.012
Dominik Tonn wrote: "ADF-Copy is a small hardware i developed which uses a Teensy 3.2 microcontroller to read and write non copy protected Amiga disks with an out of the box PC 3.5" Floppy drive connected to the microcontroller which can be build with a few jumper wires on a breadboard with no additional component. The low level stuff is handled in the microcontroller which is controlled by a Java application." (amiga-news.de reported).

Version 1.012 provides bug fixes for users of OpenJDK - if you use the original Java then you do not need this update. (snx) (Translation: (dr)

MorphOS: E-Mail client Iris, beta version 68
Jacek 'jacadcaps' Piszczek's "Iris" is supposed to become the standard mail program for MorphOS. It supports IMAP and can read and create HTML mails. Among others this latest beta version now remembers used e-mail addresses and autocompletes them in the address line.

Meanwhile Iris requires MorphOS 3.12. If you want to provide feedback then please use the corresponding discussion on MorphZone.

Changes in beta 68:
  • Fixed the HTML editor view being non-editable when opened without contents
  • Fixed e-mail caching aggregating addresses with a different name but same e-mail together
  • Fixed folder sorting when adding a new account
  • Fixed a case where some folders wouldn't show up right after configuring a new GMail account
  • Addressed a possible crash after dis/re-connecting to a store
Changes in beta 67:
  • Implemented an e-mail address cache and e-mail inline completion in To/CC/BCC strings
  • Added password/pin authentication to the crypto storage (where passwords and tokens are stored)
  • Improved e-mail rich-text editor
  • Updated Odyssey core, fixes spellchecking in the e-mail editor
  • Migrated to OpenSSL 1.1.1c
  • Updated VMime to the latest github state
  • Switched to ObjFW runtime library
  • Removed MorphOS 3.11 optimizations (enables better Unicode support in certain UI elements)
