GFX Lists Reworked
The lists of games and demos supporting GFX cards has been largely reworked. The games entries are now subdivide to categories of name, genre, and - if possible - size, download link, and URL. The demo entries now give also information whether the demo runs on 68k, PPC or on both CPU's. Additionally the list has grown strong because of the help of the Amiga users. Richard would be happy, if still more entries would be contributed to the CPU list. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

First, greetings to the community!
This way, I'm looking for 2-3 experienced C/C++ programmers on Amiga for our team. We want to produce a realtime strategy game, for now exclusively for Amiga (PPC and AmigaDE).

Conversions for Playstation 2, Dreamcast and Nintendo are planned (depending on getting a licence of the respective producer).

Interested people may apply here via email.

A small description of existing programming experience would be advantageous. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Other Companies copy Amiga's and TAO's Ideas
Hendrik Mikael Kristensen worte on ANN that on the pages of the Danish news service his attention was called to the fact that possibly other companies are desirous of copying Amiga's idea of the "write once - run everywhere" philosophy, thus pushing Amiga out of the market even before they get in there.

The article is talking about QualComm trying to create a standard operating system called BREW[TM], Binary Runtime Environment, to be used on cell phones. If you take away Wireless you (almost) have what TAO Group is doing.

Due to QualComm's particulars this works with every device equipped with their DMA chipsets. BREW[TM] sits between the chip system software and the application allowing programmers to let their applications access the cell phone's functionality without having the chip system source code or a relationship with a handset manufacturer.

QualComm want to electronically certify all BREW[TM] programs before they can run on consumer products and ask a fee from every of those spreading such programs (cell phone companies). Hendrik thinks this might be indicating how important this technology will be for the future.

Christoph Dietz

Interview with Patrick Roberts
Christoph Dietz has done an interview with the programmer of 'zAMilo', the HTTP server which runs on

Amiga-News: Hello Patrick, can you describe yourself?

Patrick Roberts: Age: 32, Born: Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, Profession: Digital Effects Supervisor. I'm currently freelance and start a film for Dreamworks in a few weeks.

Amiga-News: What is your background whith Amiga?

Patrick Roberts: I started in 1987 with a dorm-mate's A1000, then got my own A500 shortly after. As next came an A3000, and now the AmigaDE. Before Amiga, I had a C=64, Vic-20, and used to program on a PET at a local library.

Amiga-News: I can't find a program from you on Aminet. Don't you released programs for the "classic" Amiga?

Patrick Roberts: The only programs I released for the Classic were some Playstation utilities - but did so anonymously to avoid any problems with Sony. (wotizpsx, tmd2lwo, and psximgtls)

Amiga-News: When and why did you start development for AmigaDE?

Patrick Roberts: I think it was last August. Right after the SDK 1.0 was released for Linux.

Amiga-News: We can see one of your products running on It's the webserver. Did you use an existing webserver to port to AmigaDE or is this a complete new httpd?

Patrick Roberts: "zAMilo" was written from scratch, but was inspired by a micro-http server released by Ericsson for their mobile phones. I wanted to create a very small HTTP server for the AmigaDE that could be used for configuring an embedded system with a web browser. I'd like to someday use a browser on my PC to serve my VCR, tell my coffee maker when to have a cup ready for me in the morning, etc...

Amiga-News: What does "zAMIlo" stand for?

Patrick Roberts: The Ericsson server is called 'zilo', so for proper respects I kept their name and added in the standard Amiga "AM".

Amiga-News: What is the roadmap for this product?

Patrick Roberts: As I get time I want to add basic CGI and SSI support. I'm not sure beyond that.

Amiga-News: Is this your only project for AmigaDE?

Patrick Roberts: No ;P And that's one of my problems... not enough time for all of them :) Here's a list of my projects that are available from the FTP archive:
  • Artix Nettext (toollib)
  • Artix Systools (toollib)
  • Etick (Graphical Ticker app)
  • zAMilo (web server)
  • forecast (world-wide weather reports)
  • AmiFlag (Minesweeper type game)
  • cnvtools (convert image and audio formats)
  • Elate-Winease (GUI management C header library)
  • memmon (Machine-languge monitor)
Here's what's in the works:
  • Artix Gfxtools (toollib)
  • vIcons (Vector based icon toollib)
  • madplay (port of MP3 player)
Amiga-News: What do you miss most in the AmigaSDK?

Patrick Roberts: Hmmm...hard question to answer since I know it will eventually exist, but:
Hardware 3D graphics support
Good text editor like nedit

Amiga-News: Are you using the AmigaSDK for Linux or Windows?

Patrick Roberts: I have both versions for testing, but I mainly use the Linux SDK.

Amiga-News: Do you think that OS4.0 for the classic Amiga's is needed?

Patrick Roberts: I don't have a classic any more (I own one, but have loaned it to a friend). I'm mainly looking forward to AmigaDE commercial release, but it would be nice if Amiga would continue to support all the classic users.

Amiga-News: You know about the amiga community. How do you think about it?

Patrick Roberts: I'm always amazed with the knowledge level of the Amiga community. I really happy to be a part of a community with so many geniuses that I can learn from.

Amiga-News: Your "last words" to our readers?

Patrick Roberts: All of us can make it happen! (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Amiga is Looking For Developers for PDA Applications
Gary Peake wrote:


Several weeks ago, I promised you some exciting announcements. As the first of those, I would like to introduce Matt Fontenot, Amiga's Product Manager.

Matt has been with us from the beginning and while you may not have met him yet, he has been working closely with many of our third party partners and has been busy creating many new products, as you will soon see.

Now for the announcement:

There is tremendous potential for distribution of your applications, games and other content for one of the world's largest manufacturers of PDA hardware. The projection is for more than 7 million units to be sold by the end of 2001 and there are already several million units on the market at this time. There will be specific requirements as far as style, type of applications, distribution rights and certification of content. Matt will have more details on this in the near future.

If you are interested in developing PDA applications and games for a specific manufacturer who will use Amiga Inc. for content delivery, please contact Matt as soon as possible. This is a serious project for those with an interest in providing content and we will open a new mailing list for it - the particulars will be announced in a few days.

This project is for both open source and commercial content providers, so no matter what your choice of development is, you are cordially invited to apply. To get further details, though, you must have a signed NDA on file with Amiga. You can get an NDA form from under the legal menu, right hand menu bar.

Just fill it out and fax it to my attention at 425-396-5671. Then send an e-mail to that says "I am interested." You can also contact Gary at or Matt at

Gary Peake
Matt Fontenot

Amiga, Inc. asks you not to send the above mentioned e-mail to, but to add your e-mail address at the bottom of this original message and then to send it in using the "I am interested!" button. (unk) (Translation: (unk)
