RapaGUI: the most popular Hollywood plugins: RapaGUI. RapaGUI is a cross-platform GUI toolkit that allows the creation of native GUIs for AmigaOS (MUI), Windows, Linux (GTK),

RapaGUI 1.1: Downoload

Airsoft Softwair is proud to present version 1.1 of one of the most popular Hollywood plugins: RapaGUI. RapaGUI is a cross-platform GUI toolkit that allows the creation of native (!) GUIs for AmigaOS (MUI), Windows, Linux (GTK), and Mac OS based systems! GUI layouts in RapaGUI are conveniently defined in XML files which are then converted into full-blown GUIs by RapaGUI on-the-fly. It just doesn't get any easier!

RapaGUI supports all the widgets you need to create modern GUI applications, including multi-column listviews, treeviews, tabbed page widgets, toolbars, status bars, text editor widgets, menu bars, HTML views and much more. The highlight of RapaGUI, however, is certainly its inbuilt Hollywood MOAI class. This class allows dynamic embedding of complete Hollywood displays into GUIs which can be used to combine Hollywood's powerful multimedia functionality with RapaGUI's GUI abilities into one powerful application.

RapaGUI 1.1 is a major update and contains the following new features:

- Unicode support (requires Hollywood 7)
- 64-bit support on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS (requires Hollywood 7)
- Drag'n'drop support
- Combobox class greatly enhanced
- Lots of new functions for Choice class
- Online help for the Windows IDE (requires Hollywood 7)
- Support for high DPI monitors (requires Hollywood 7)
- Several other smaller improvements and bug fixes

RapaGUI comes with almost 300 pages of documentation in various formats like PDF, HTML, AmigaGuide, and CHM that describes the GUI programming basics in detail and provides a convenient MOAI function and class reference. A step-by-step tutorial that guides you to your first RapaGUI program is also included. On top of that, almost 20 example scripts are included in the distribution archive, including advanced scripts like a complete video player which really show off the power of Hollywood and RapaGUI working together.

All this makes RapaGUI the ultimate cross-platform GUI toolkit, carefully crafted for you sailors of the seven GUI seas! Only RapaGUI allows rapid cross-platform GUI development on all islands - it is the ultimate fusion of all the different OS GUI toolkits into one MOAI face, carved in stone for eternity and beyond. RapaGUI is available free of charge and can be downloaded from the official Hollywood portal at http://www.hollywood-mal.com/ Versions for AmigaOS 3, AmigaOS 4, MorphOS, AROS, Windows, Mac OS X and Linux are provided. AmigaOS users please do note that although RapaGUI is still compatible with MUI 3.8, it is highly recommended to install MUI 4.0 to use all of RapaGUI's features.

Posted by AndreasM - 18 April 2017 10:32
AndreasM's Avatar  The full colour preview and excerpts of the Amiga Future issue 126 (May/June 2017) are now available online.

Some of the interesting articles in this issue are:

Interview Daniel Müßener
Amiga WHDLoad Maschine Teil 3
Review Workbench Explorer

Of course there's so MUCH more actually in the magazine.

Needless to say you'll find some FULL versions of software, often what was commercially available, as well as some of the latest try-outs or freely released software applications and games for, hopefully, all of the Amiga type Operating systems, so that's Amiga 'Classic', OS4, MorphOS, and AROS, including some PD software for these systems, all on the cover CD.

A detailed description of content and excerpts can be found at: http://www.amigafuture.de/kb.php?mode=cat&cat=13

The Amiga Future magazine is available as an English and German printed magazine - every issue is available in FULL COLOUR - directly available from the magazine editorial office and also from various other Amiga dealers.

Rick Dangerous Enhanced - An enhanced WIP version of a classic for Amiga RTG/Vampire
Posted by Neil79 - 11 April 2017 13:09

Throughout the last few years we've had a lot of Rick Dangerous news, from the in development Atari 8bit port, to versions available to play as PC portable exes. But even though this game is regarded as a great classic platformer by many, with its Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider vibe from Core Design in 1989, there hasn't been any overhauled versions taking advantage of faster systems, at least until now anyway. Thanks to a heads up via our Commodore Amiga Facebook group from Jen Ser, here we have Rick Dangerous Enhanced, which is an enhanced version of a classic for Amiga RTG and Vampire based Amiga's that is in development.

CannonBall - Enhanced Outrun Engine Released
Posted by lantus360 - 10 April 2017 05:10
Still salty about the original Outrun port all those years ago?

You're in luck - I decided to port over CannonBall - OutRun engine to the Amiga.

Of course you need a seriously fast Amiga to play this - A500 or A600 with Vampire 2/Gold 2 core or better recommended

Available on Aminet now. - http://aminet.net/package/game/race/CannonBall

Legionary's Avatar  I recently got playsid.library v1.2 compiled 30.03.96 if that may be of interrest for some one.

Whatä's new?? No idea. The source seem to be for v1.1, but the included binary file says v1.2 and it's about 1 kb bigger than v1.1, and no for you asking for the source, as i'm not allowed to spread the sourcecode.

Mail me if you want the library.

New Book: When Pixels Ruled the Amiga
Posted by CodyJarrett - 01 April 2017 08:16
CodyJarrett's Avatar 

I am proud to announce a new book called "When Pixels Ruled the Amiga". It's about the smallest of things: the humble pixel!

When you look at an Amiga game it's actually made up of thousands of little squares. This book is a celebration of these normally overlooked pixels.

The price will be around £49.99 / 59.99 Euros / $64.99 and it will be published this summer.

Fifty famous pixels will be displayed in all their stunning full page glory. Here are some page mock-ups:

Amiga Future: cheats database Update

The cheats database of Amiga Future is updates weekly by David Jahn, even at first sight if it is not immediately apparent.

The cheat database on the Amiga Future webpage is probably the biggest German collection for the Amiga.

This is not just about cheats. Many solutions, tips and tricks, as well as Freezer addresses can be found in this collection.

Meanwhile you can find more as 3400 Games Cheats and solutions in the database, and there is always more.

The database is currently completely in German. If we receive enough donations for the website, we have planned to integrate a proper online database, which will also be available in English.

Hollywood 7: Eternity out now!
Posted by jPV - 21 March 2017 11:58
jPV's Avatar  (News taken from Hollywood forums)

In the year of Hollywood's 15th anniversary, Airsoft Softwair, the hardest working men in code business, are back on your screen with Hollywood 7: Eternity. Hollywood 7.0 is a massive update with many new features and bug fixes. The most important new feature is full support for Unicode and native support for 64-bit CPUs on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux. This is especially useful on Linux because using 32-bit binaries on a 64-bit Linux is quite a hassle. On top of that, there are lots of other new features.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of new features in Hollywood 7.0:

* Unicode is now fully supported!
* Lots of new functions for dealing with Unicode text
* Hollywood is now available in native 64-bit versions for Windows, Linux, Mac OS, and iOS
* Mac OS and iOS backends have been completely rewritten, they are a lot faster now!
* High resolution ("Retina") displays now fully supported on Windows, Mac OS, and iOS; Hollywood is ultra-crisp in 4K modes now
* New hardware-accelerated full screen scale mode
* Faster drawing on Windows and Mac OS
* Lots of new features in the iOS backend
* Support for conditional compiling at preprocessor level
* Switch-Case statement supports fall through now
* Text can now be laid out in justified lines
* Lots of improvements in the IDE on Windows (e.g. direct help and syntax highlighting for functionality provided by plugins)
* Multi-coloured vector paths are now supported
* Live resizing on Windows and Mac OS
* Time-stamped events
* New example scripts
* 70 new pages of PDF documentation, now 924 altogether!
* Lots of other changes, optimizations and bug fixes

Hollywood 7.0 is the ultimate Multimedia experience and a must-have for all creative people. Hollywood is available on CD and as a download version. Both versions include Hollywood for all supported platforms (except the Android and iOS versions). It is no longer necessary to buy separate licenses for the different platforms. Buying Hollywood gives you a single-user license for all 15 platforms supported by Hollywood. If you already own Hollywood, you can buy a discounted upgrade version. People who bought Hollywood 6.1 in 2017 can request a free upgrade.

Hollywood is the ultimate bridge between all the different AmigaOS compatible platforms and the other three modern desktop systems, Windows, Mac OS, and Linux! Additionally, Hollywood also supports the Android and iOS platforms. A truly unique feature is the ability to cross-compile native executables for many different platforms including: AmigaOS3, AmigaOS4, WarpOS, MorphOS, AROS (x86), Windows (x86, x64), Mac OS X (x86, x64, ppc), and Linux (x86, x64, ppc, arm). You don't even have to own these platforms in order to compile executables for them. It's enough to run Hollywood on one of the supported platforms and then compile programs for all the others! Only Hollywood makes it possible. If you want to learn more about Hollywood, please visit the the official Hollywood portal which also has a forum for all questions concerning Hollywood.

All this makes Hollywood The Cross-Platform Multimedia Application Layer. Join the Multimedia revolution and get your personal copy of Hollywood 7: Eternity now!

This release was brought to you by Airsoft Softwair - the hardest working men in code business.

New Independent Periodical "in the style of" Amiga Power
Posted by Anakirob - 18 March 2017 01:42
Anakirob's Avatar  I have been spending the last month working really hard on putting together a magazine to be published regularly, hopefully monthly but possibly bi-monthly or quarterly depending on how we go producing the first couple of issues.

The Power Magazine is a publication for SteamOS gaming. Although obviously any SteamOS games are also available for Windows, so any PC gamer should be able to get something out of our pages. And also we cover vintage systems as emulation is one of the main ways Linux users traditionally play games on their system.

Indeed the Amiga will feature quite heavily in the first issue to be published in April, as well as the special edition issue zero which is due in just under one week from now. We have adjusted our release schedule to the first of every month. So this news is quite relevant to the Amiga.

Especially considering that for issue one we plan on releasing a real Amiga coverdisk, which will also be available for download as an ADF and possibly LHA as a tribute to our heritage.


Please not that the actual cover for The Power Magazine issue zero may vary. For example the "outrageous claims" will most likely appear inside the magazine and not on the cover.
