More Coyote Flux 3D-Engine Screenshots
Some more screenshots of the 3D terrain-renderer have been added to the temporary website of Coyote Flux. These are the last screenshots without texturemapping.

Since several people asked if the engine is voxel-based, some new screenshots will be released soon to show that this is NOT a voxel. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Amiga.org Clarification
Amiga.org is currently down. This weekend we took over 2.5 million hits to the server, and transferred over 40Gb in two days (mostly because of the Amiga 2001 pictures).

As a result, our ISP suspended our service due to scragging their MySQL server. That means for the moment that Amiga.org will be unavailable until they either allow us back online, or I gather the money to move to another ISP.

Simple fact of life, Amiga.org is once again a victim of it's own success (for which I humbly thank you guys) and anyone who says the Amiga community is dead, obviously doesn't have to pay for it's bandwidth... :)

We'll be back soon I hope

Gateway Show Amiga 2001 - Report by Markus Nerding
Markus Nerding promised us to send us a live report from the fair if he had the opportunity. He kept his promise and sent us the following report:

As during the previous years, the hosts of the the fair, Bob and Diana Sharp have created a magnificent ambient for the biggest of the US fairs.

In the celebration hall of the Sharaton hotel, all the famous retailers, manufacturers and Amiga User Groups were present. There are not too many news from this side, so everybody was waiting eagerly for the announcements Amiga Inc. had planned to make at the banquet on Saturday evening.

However there were some things to see, and most of all different softwares and hardwares to buy. One novelty was the presentation of the VarIO-Borad by Jens Schönfeld - a multi-IO-card with serial, parallel and PS/2 Port. Grasshopper showed version 4.0.9 of PageStream which is available since last week. At Mr.Hardware there was a PC expansion card that allows full access for the Amiga. The by far biggest stand was owned by Merlancia Industries who had planed to present a PPC-board, but there must have been some obstacle to this. Not present, for the first time in years, was BoXer who had formerly always been praised by AntiGravity, but who had even failed to present a prototype the previous years.

At noon on Saturday, Petro invited all Amiga-fans for a pizza. The hotel brought so many Pizza Hut boxes that even hours after that there were still some available. In addition to this, beer was free too: Budweiser and Bud Lite - it is weird that I must think only now about the fact that Dave Haynie was present too. As well as Joe Torre who entertained us once again with uncountable stories. I think he is almost a better entertainer than a hardware developer ;-)

Like the previous years, there were a lot of interesting seminars. Gary Peake and Rudi Chiarito talked about the subject "Where we are today" and showed the actual status of the AmigaDE-Developer System. Further seminars talked about ImageFX, PageStream, hardware design, Amiga Forever and some different subjects. We held a seminar about StormC and of course AmigaOS 3.9, where there were of course many questions asked about the future.

Saturday night - Petro's Farewell-banquet - first plank: "Petro's Roast". Here people were allowed balance their accounts with Petro and some speakers really invested themselves in this ;-) A very funny matter which ended with many presents give to and by Petro. Petro himself the summarized once again the history of Commodore/Amiga - of course, after 20 years he had a lot to tell. He emphasised however that he will not be definitively gone and that he will attend to one or the other event.

Then it was Bill McEwen's turn. By now it was late but he once more was able to wake up the people. The AmigaONE by Eyetech, AmigaOS 4.0 and the use of AmigaDE on the new Zaurus PDAs from Sharp were announced. These were of course the subject Amiga users had been waiting for.

The CEO of Eyetech, Allan Redhouse, could already show a fully featured card of the AmigaONE, which however still had some electric defect. However first developer boards should be ready soon and the shipping to the customers will start end of June (2001 of course ;-)).

Matched to this was the announcement of AMigaOS 4.0 which will now at last bring the long awaited PPC version of the AmigaOS. The port will be done by Amiga Inc. in association with Haage&Partner and other developers. Details about this will follow soon, however the project is on its way and a high priority to Amiga Inc.

The next climax was Bill's presentation of the Zaurus, the new PDA from Sharp, on which ran the famous Boing-Ball-Demo of the AmigaDE. There is a deal with Sharp so in short, it will run on billions of devices. Bill also talked about Psion, who want to use AmigaDE on the laptop-similar Netbook and also about the possibility to use it on any Windows-CE device. All in all an interesting view of the big distribution of the AmigaDE, which will be done in parallel with the AmigaOS 4.0 development and which should merge later on.

To sum up, one can say about the fair that there have been for once really interesting news whose repercussions could be fundamental. Obviously, Amiga Inc. is concentrating more on its roots and kernel, which they own, the AmigaOS. All this is looking good, however now it will show in which time these things will become reality for the developers and users. We are very curious about it...

We thank Markus Nerding very heartily for this detailed insight and wish a nice Sunday to all of the visitors. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

individual Computers Produces C-64 hardware
In association with members of the C-64 scene a clone of the popular Action Replay has been developed. The new edition has a 128K Flash Rom instead of the 32K Eprom and a 32K Ram instead of a 8K Ram. This makes it possible to use the known Rom versions of the Action Replay as well as the Roms of the SuperSnapshot and the Nordic Power.

The Freeze-Logic has been significantly improved. A and an accurate control of the main CPU increase the security while freezing the system.
The new Cartridges will be available from June 2001. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Boing Bag #1 for OS 3.9
Just in time for the Gateway Computer Show Amiga 2001 Amiga Inc. and Haage&Partner make the new Boing Bag #1 for Amiga OS 3.9 available for free download.

The most important innovation is surely AsyncWB that allows simultaneous copying and deleting on the Workbench. Next to many improvements GenesisPrefs, HDToolBox, AMPlifier, ViNCEd, WBRun, UnArc, RAWBInfo and BenchTrash have been revised. Further details can be taken from the readmes.

Download: BoingBag39-1.lha - ca. 5 MB
- BoingBag-1.readme -

As there had been no further news from St. Louis besides this I have taken the time and installed the new Boing Bag and naturally immediately tested it.

ASyncWB, allowing you to copy and delete with the Workbench at the same time, works terrific. This is especially good when copying or deleting big directories.

It's brilliant that you can now give search paths for Find via drag'n drop. So you don't have to search through a whole device but can reduce the search to single directories. Very practical.

Also very good is the new function in RAWBInfo. When you press the Shift key in the program information and double click on a tooltype, it gets toggled (activated becomes inactive and vice versa).

When you view text files with Multiview it's now possible to search the text for terms using the new "navigation menu". The function was indeed already there but only accessible via keyboard input.

The WBClock has got many beautiful designs in the Presets to choose from. Some of them I do really like very much.

That's all for the moment as I couldn't test more for now. Everybody who like to may write about further useful "discoveries" in the comments :-). (unk) (Translation: (unk)

SecondSpin v2.16 beta
A new version of SecondSpin has been released. SecondSpin is a tool to convert audio CDs to MPEG audio 1, 2 or 3. Additionally further formats like AIFF and WAV are supported. For MPEG encoding is a modified version of LAME V3.87+ needed.

The v2.16 beta solves the problem that SecondSpin had difficulties reading the CD information from CDDB.com. But beware, on the homepage there is written that the latest version is the 2.15 beta. This is not correct. Just ignore it and download. You'll get the latest version ;-).

History:
v2.16 - Changed OS recognition code. It may have failed under some VERY, VERY rare circumstances. Changed the www.cddb.com support to freedb.freedb.org! This should fix the CDDB problems! (12/Mar/2001)

AmiComSys Looking For a New Server
Håkan Parting, the author of AmiComSys, is looking for a new server for his Amiga buddy and chat program. The program works similar to the known ICQ but exists only for Amiga computers for now. Up to now around 200 people use this program.

Wanted is an Amiga online 24h, so it could work as a server. Everybody who could help may write to hakan@parting.nu.

Here's the original message:
AmiComSys is a shareware program to find Amiga buddies on the Internet, chat and send files.

It's rather similar to the famous ICQ but currently only for Amiga. AmiComSys was born April 1997. My plan is to release version 2.0 of this software this year.

The reason for writing is that I need a new full time server, because the current server at ACS.hostile.cx isn't up anymore.

The server software AmiComSys connects to is named AMarqueed, which is a part of the AMarquee-package. You may find information about it at the following URL: http://parting.nu/AMarquee/

AmiComSys have about 200 users, of about at this time ten is online at the same time. This means that the server won't need very much bandwidth.

So if you have an Amiga that is connected to the Internet 24 hours a day, I would very much appreciate if you could let me use it for the server.

The AmiComSys home page is located at http://parting.nu/AmiComSys/

Please contact me at the email address mentioned below for more information.

Best regards,

Håkan Parting, author of AmiComSys, AMarquee, JAMarquee, VersionWB and GlossTask.
