The Amiga RC5 Team effort client programs have been updated
Return-Path: rc5@amiga.cistron.nl (Thomas Tavoly)
Date: Mon, 3 Jul 2000 02:46:19 MET
Subject: PR: The Amiga RC5 Team effort client programs have been updated

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 2nd 2000

The Amiga RC5 Team effort client programs have been updated


The Amiga RC5 Team effort's continued involvement in the Distributed Net
RC5 challenge (and others) is now, after a long silence in development,
bolstered by updated client programs that are again state of the art.

The new clients support RC5 encryption searching as before, but with
improved speed and features, plus distributed calculation of Optimal Golomb
Rulers or OGR for short. OGR is a mathematical algorithm useful for amongst
others engineering tasks. There are now also separate native clients for
68k (including 68000) AmigaOS, WarpOS and PowerUp. The GUI frontend Myzar
has been updated as well to cater for the new clients.

Apart from the updates, the development team has been extended with several
volunteer members to allow for more timely updates and continued support for
the future.

The Distributed.Net/RC5-64 challenge has searched about 27% of the
keyspace up until now and the rate is still increasing by bounds. The Amiga
team is a top 10 ranked team out of almost ten thousand teams with a total
of over 250,000 participants. Our cooperative effort still accounts for
more than one percent of the daily work being done.

The Amiga RC5 Team effort focuses on bringing exposure to the Amiga and
the community spirit and strives to achieve this by ranking high in
distributed computing projects such as the RC5 challenge, using otherwise
idle computing power only. This effort is also aimed at highlighting
privacy and security issues on the Internet and possibly changing outdated
encryption policies.

We need your help to achieve above goals and show the world the
Amiga is not dead, in spite of a total lack of support from parent
companies over the past, well, millennium.

Everyone is cordially invited to join, with any kind of machine, though
one Amiga at least is appreciated. For a full explanation of what the
effort is about, where we are heading, how to participate and everything
from statistics to member listings, please visit the Amiga RC5 Team effort
homepage at http://distributed.amiga.org.

The Amiga RC5 Team effort is also providing a mailinglist as a forum for
the discussion on above topics and the effort in general.


Sincerely,

Amiga RC5 Team effort coordinator
Thomas Tavoly - rc5@amiga.cistron.nl

Back to the Roots - update
Today we present you after a long time an update of Back to the Roots. The last months were very stressful for us.

There are some new legal games for download at BTTR. One of the new companies supporting us is Vivid Image and they have produced the classic game "The First Samurai". But more interesting should be the cooperation with Vulcan Software for you. Every month Vulcan Software will present one of their games of their mini series for download. The debut game of Vulcan Software "Valhalla and the Lord of Infinity" will be the first one. Also there are many new games, demos, pics, and new mods. Have fun!.

Remark:
I know some of the Amiga users are wondering about the ADF-format of our games. For those who do not know there is a little tool named "TransADF" that you can use to rewrite the games onto a disk like with DMS. Through a Aminet-gateway you can reach the Aminet via BTTR. This gateway is not only a gateway it offers also some special features like for example a forum function so you can discuss about every single file on the Aminet. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Opinions on the SDK's VP from J.Wiede
J. Wiede has dealed with the VP from the point of view of a developer of drivers in particular and gives a very discerning opinion on the VP in the above usenet posting.

04 Jul 2000, Addition:
Andreas Kleinert and Olaf Barthel informed us about a surely interesting background of this: the author of this 'somewhat discerning' article about the AmigaSDK is a former employee of Commodore, who in those days operated at CATS for the Tech Support. His entire name is "John Wiederhirn". One shoul be aware of this backround while reading his articles in this discussion. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Appe V3 - Connecting Playstation Pad to CD32
With the above Aminet archive Benjamin Morente describes how to build a hardware interface that allows to use a standard digital Pad for the Playstation with all Amigas. This solution emulates a joystick with two firebuttons as well as a CD32 Pad and even works with other computers using a 9pol joystick port (e.g. Commodore 64, MSX, Spectrum (needs joystick interface), Amstrd CPC, Atari, and similar).

"Corel, Canadian graphics software specialist turned Linux distributor, is sometimes good for a surprise other than bad sales reports. On the LinuxTag, Corel already presented its Linux graphics suite CorelDraw 9 (booth 5.1.1.9). While it was previously said the package will probably be released in autumn, Friday night the Corel HQ in Canada gave it's OK: CorelDraw 9 for Linux is now released, and will hit the shelves in two to three weeks, however not for free. The image processor Photo-Paint, on the other hand, is already free for download." (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Chrystal Interactive Software News - Part 1
Part 2
Michael Carrillo has visited C.I.S. and wrote a summary report with added screenshots, with news e.g. on the adventure games "Gilbert Goodmate" and "Mushroom of Phangoria".

Thomas Lorenz: It should be noted that Crystal will only port Gilbert Goodmate to the Amiga if their second project "Dark Millenia" is sold at least 1000 times (or at least 1000 people state their interest, e.g. by e-mail). It is also mentioned that a "desaster" as with FusionPPC can hopefully be avoided!

The current demo on Michael's website "Amiga Rediscovery" is "Hired Guns". (unk) (Translation: (unk)

New ppclibemu
ppclibemu is an emulation of the ppc.library and the PowerUP kernel under WarpOS. An own ELF LoadSeg patch is included, and allows many (some?) PowerUP-applications to run just like in the original environment. Those apps that run show no feelable speed penalty. Some are even faster than with the original kernel.

New in v0.8: PortLists, PPCFindTask, PPCFindTaskObject, PPCSignalTask, PPCDeleteTask. Please try which of the two runs better with installed PowerUP software, A or B?

Download:
ppclibemuA.lzx - ppclibemu A v0.8 (30.06.00), latest version (libs only)
ppclibemuB.lzx - ppclibemu B v0.8 (30.06.00), latest version (libs only) (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Update of the homepage, and new domain names
Not only the design has changed - our domain has changed, too. The old domain name www.amigadev.de will be transferred to Amiga Inc. in the next couple of days.

We decided to take this step because the domains amigadev.COM and amigadev.NET were already owned by Amiga Inc., and we therefore confused some users, who of course thought that amigadev.DE would be the German counterpart to amigadev.COM. To put an end to this confusion, and to give Amiga Inc. the opportunity to create German pages under amigadev.DE, some days ago we ordered our web hoster to transfer the domain name to Amiga Inc.

Our new domain names are now:

www.highantdev.de and www.highantdev.com.

The .DE domain will lead you to the German pages, and the .COM domain to the English ones. Since the English pages are not yet finished, both domains lead you to German pages for the time being. (unk) (Translation: (unk)
