Rainboot 2.65 released / Original Windows98 Bootup for Amiga?
Andreas Falkenhahn writes:
 1) Rainboot 2.65 released:
On the Airsoft Softwair website, a new version of the famous multimedia bootup Rainboot has just been released. For the first time, the new version offers support for multiple background pics and other new features / improvements.
 2) An original Windows98 Bootup for Amiga?
That's possible now, of course simulated only :-) At the Airsoft Softwair website, the WindowsSimulator Bootconfig for Rainboot has been released. This looks almost 100% like the Windows98 original (start screen, cycle, desktop, icons, taskbar, sounds). A Windows98 startup is faked, leading to a rare Exception suggesting to rather use AmigaOS. The bootup is great for impressing PC friends, at least it worked for me. Rainboot 2.65 is required, since new features of this version are used. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

Dangerous tips for solar eclipse
There are hints going around on internet that you could use a floppy disk instead of a special eclipse glass for filtering sunlight - which is not without risk! If you thought about doing so, read the above article by Chip magazine (German, sorry). (ps) (Translation: (unk)

LinuxPPC and Microsoft invite hackers
He who succeeds breaking in at crack.linuxppc.org wins a system as reward. Microsoft offers www.windows2000test.com for cracking, but as opposed to Linux demands adherence to certain rules ;-). (ps) (Translation: (unk)

Foundation


Foundation News
Two Foundation products have been announced for this year. First there'll be "Foundation: Directors Cut" which is a re-release of the original Foundation, containing version 1.25, supporting graphics cards, gouraud shading and more special effects. Regarding the very low price (14.99) of the re-release this is the chance for everyone who "forgot" to buy this game 'til now.
The second one will be "Foundation Edge", which is Foundation, completely rewritten in portable C++ (which could mean a PPC version of Foundation) and a totally different interface. The Foundation's Edge Homepage is already online. More information will be available there by the end of the week.
Update News:
In the next days a new update will be released. Paul Burkey is working on version 1.25, which will be included on the CD "Foundation: Directors Cut". The support for Foundation and FoundationDC will be continued.

Paul Burkey answered to an eMail:

Great! You will certainly not have to wait quite so long for this new game to arive! You'll be playing it for christmas!

The re-release CD, "Foundation: Directors Cut" will be released as soon as possible. I'm currently compiling the CD myself. It will contain the original game but with the next update (V1.25) already installed. If you already have the original Foundation CD then you can download the update from the Foundation Homepage or possibly find it on a PD disk or cover of a Magazine. However the price of "Foundation: Directors Cut" will be much cheaper than the original Foundation (Probably 50 DM) so for anyone who doesn`t yet have Foundation, this is an ideal chance to get it.
Foundation's Edge will be a whole new game. More details of both products will be made available in the next week. Also, you might like to know that Foundation is now published by Epic Marketing (Islona). This will be announced in the next few days but you are free to publish that information if you wish.

Flightsimulator "Flight Gear" Is Open Source
Amiga game writers should have look at the titlelink, where source code of the flight sim "Flight Gear" can be found. A hardware accelerated MESA or Open GL is required, so this should be an ideal project for a Warp3D powered MESA PPC Amiga. (ps) (Translation: (unk)

Amiga in K1 Reportage (German TV)
Robert Wahnsiedler writes:
Yesterday, about 1:00 AM, I stumbled across a repeat of "K1 - Die Reportage", and what did my tired eyes see in a report - an Amiga 4000. :) -.
It was about payment on internet by credit card, and how easy it is being cheated. They showed an interview with Evrim Serim (sp?), a long-standing Amiga user and co-author of the book Hackerland. It was briefly shown how easy it is for a "pro" to hack into a simple site, and read out the credit card data. The interview was made in his room, where he sat in front of an Amiga 4000, which was easily recognized by keyboard and desktop. :) The screen was not that much visible, but the great Boing ball sticking to the monitor :). Great advertising for insiders... :). (ps) (Translation: (unk)
