As formerly reported several times, the Gateway Computer Show 'Amiga2001' will take place in St. Louis from 03-30-2001 to 04-01-2001. Petro Tyschtschenko will attend a celebration on the occasion of his retirement at the show .

The original message:

»Petro Tyschtschenko is hosting a celebration at the Amiga2001 show. That's right, Petro has been kind enough to provide funding for a little celebration of his retirements. Check out the web pages for this special announcement.

Don't forget, we have a ROAST of Petro lined up for the Banquet. The deadline for advance ticket purchase and the Banquet have been extended to Monday March 26. Banquet tickets are only available in advance this year. So get you check in pronto. Tickets are selling very well.

The Amiga2001 web pages have been updated several times since my last email. If you haven't checked them for venors and prizes lately, you should look again. We'll have more next week too. So check often.

Several companies have been kind enough to donate prizes for our show. Also, the hall is filling up quite nicely, so check and see if you've missed any of the vendors.« (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Dirk Hase on ANF

Which one looks best? Amiga-Boing-Ball or Check-Marks?
Dirk Hase takes interest in the opinion of Amiga-Users. "I have already heard many said that they prefer the Check-Marks over the Boing-Ball. One criterion is the recognition value of the logos. The Check-Marks overrules the Boing-Ball at this in my experience. Has the time come to start a poll about his? Or maybe a graphics contest about this subject? I think that Amiga Inc. should also be informed about this since we can count on a new product, soon."

We can fulfill Dirk's wish about the poll. You can participate by following the title link. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Version 2 of the Universal Filter for PageStream
The 'universal' filter allows loading of many additional graphic formats within the PageStream v3.x/v4.x DTP program. Furthermore the loading of already supported graphic formats was considerably accelerated in parts.

Version 2 of the filter is finally released for free on Similar to ICS the filter is now using the IRW library for image loading.

The innovations in version 2 are:
  • Now supports <8Bit and CMYK modes in PageStream
  • Faster
  • Almost no memory usage when no image is loaded
  • Loading of 16 bit (converted to 8 bit) and CMYK data is now possible
  • Improved PGM/PBM/PPM/JPEG/BMP/TIFF routines
  • Considerably improved error handling thanks to IRW
  • Locale support
  • Compiled for different cpus
  • MANY small improvements

The supported formats for now are:

BMP, DataTypes, DCX, IFF ILBM, JPEG, PCX, GIF, PGM/PBM/PPM, PNG, Targa, TIFF (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Heise: Slashdot have to Delete Article about Scientology
On last Friday the news and discussion forum Slashdot announced a premiere the operators might rather not wanted to experience: for the first time the internet service - founded in 1997 they have become one of the most important speaking tubes for the open source scene - had to remove an already published article.

In a message regarding the incident Rob Malda, founder of Slashdot and on the net also known as CmdrTaco, stated that on Saturday last week an anonymous reader had contributed an article containing a text Scientology keeps copyright for. Scientology lay claim on being a church which the US revenue authorities admited. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Espial Escape - Slim Webbrowser for AmigaDE
"Escape is a HTML4.01 webbrowser which just happens to work on AmigaDE thanks to its Java support. Escape is not only small, but fast and loaded with features including HTML4.01, DHTML and more."

On you can read about it:

I noticed that the easiest way to install Espials Escape on the AmigaSDK was to simply unzip the *.jar files to the root. Sadly there was no archive on Espials homepage that made it easy for me to get them. So I mailed them about the problem. Now they have added an archive of Escape with the Jar files on their homepage.

Espial Escape is a slim webbrowser for smart devices which supports all modern web standards.

Payback Update
The first update for Payback is available. Several reported bugs were fixed and a screen scaling feature was added for slower processors. Also, new graphics were integrated.

There's also an update of the demo version, which raises the time limit of three to five minutes.

On the Payback website, an FAQ about Payback was opened which answers frequently asked questions. The game can be ordered directly in the online store.

In an interview with the Amiga-Future, programmer James Daniels describes Payback as follows: "The player assumes the role of a young, fleeing driver and attempts to become a big gangster boss. The game is entirely non-linear. To complete a level, the player has to collect a certain amount of points. How he achieves that is entirely up to him. You can follow the advice of the local Kingpin, uncover secret missions, or get into a fight." (unk) (Translation: (unk)

New Screenshots of the Real-time RPG "Between the Lines"
Because of a harddisk crash, we have lost all source codes of our games "Crossfire II" and "Between the Lines". At least Crossfire II could partly be recovered, but it'll take several months to fully restore it.

As a compensation and the long time during which nothing happened on our homepage, there are a few new screenshots of the real time RPG BtL. (unk) (Translation: (unk)
