New Game - Astro Blox Revisited
Posted by juen - 26 November 2020 12:13
Astro Blox Revisited

Code: Pawel Juen Nowak
Graphics: Zbigniew PPILL Pozoga
Music: Jakub Aceman Szelag

A variation of the Sokoban style game with new logic elements. The game was first presented in the GAME DEV competition organized at DECRUNCH 2020, where it took first place.

The game finally offers 34 different stages. The ability to perform movements with a joystick or keyboard. Works on any classic Amiga with 512kb CHIP memory (stock A500).

Keys during the game: R - restart a stage, ESC - return to the menu, ARROWS - move.

In the box, in addition to the instructions in the form of a poster, there is a DD floppy disk and a bootable CD.

The game was tested on the A500, A1000, A2000, A1200, CDTV and CD32. Additional extensions (like V2, TF, 060) shouldn't be a problem. It was written in assembly language.

The game will be made available for free this year.

icon  The Amiga Show: Produced entirely on Amiga and just launched today
Posted by TenLeftFingers - 14 November 2020 19:50
TenLeftFingers's Avatar  Just saw episode 1 of this today. It's very well produced with it's own Amiga-made logos and animations. The content is excellent. At one point the presenter attempts to recreate the Debbie Harry painting by Andy Warhol. There's a lot more packed into the 25 minutes. Very enjoyable.

Ambermoon open source remake in progress
Posted by alexh - 04 November 2020 18:36
alexh's Avatar  I may have mentioned this before but there is an open-source remake of Ambermoon in progress which should bring this awesome Amiga RPG to many other platforms including Windows and Linux.

It is being headed by an enthusiast called Pyrdacor, and he's making great progress, it's still pre-alpha but already way ahead of the previous attempt Amberworlds.

https://github.com/Pyrdacor/Ambermoon.net/releases

There is lots of interesting information here about file formats etc.

https://github.com/Pyrdacor/Ambermoon

I've been maintaining a list of bugs reported in v1.07 for many years

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

And many people such as Metallic, Hexaae, Maynef have been diagnosing and fixing them.

I am keeping an eye on the project, participating where I can and trying to steer the development to create tools which will allow easy back-porting of bug fixes he discovers to the English v1.07 and German v1.05 Amiga versions.

If you're an Amiga Ambermoon fan, maybe with a bit of free time, Pyrdacor is asking for experienced Ambermoon players to contribute to understanding the last few features of the game. Take a look, just for fun:

https://github.com/Pyrdacor/Ambermoon.net/issues/51

I do hope this will become a fully playable version of the game with potentially improvements over the original.

Dan Malone (Chaos Engine etc) releases signed prints of his work.
Posted by LordNipple - 04 November 2020 11:39
LordNipple's Avatar  Hi all!

Yesterday Dan launched his website selling very high quality signed prints of some of his work including a gorgeous print of the Navvie from The Chaos Engine.

Dan will be adding more work in the coming months which should include some of his Amiga works including prints of some of his actual pixel work from the games that he worked on (hopefully).

The selection is quite small at the moment but will grow over time.
Once new Amiga-prints get released I shall add them to this thread.

Please head over here to check them out:

Ask Your Amiga: Wikipedia Search Tool ("AYA")
Posted by Weaselrama - 19 October 2020 22:35
Weaselrama's Avatar  The germ of the idea is here in v0.1: A Wikipedia search tool without using a browser. Despite the screenshot on Amitopia, there's not that much information returned - yet. Otherwise, it is an intriguing idea. I thank the authors of this app for their time and for supporting the community.

It requires MUI and the GIF datetype. It includes versions for AROS, OS4, and MorphOS.

VControlGUI: Very small utility that lets you send commands to flype's VControl software. VControl allows us to tweak Vampire card behaviours according to the needs of the user. In the screensho some icons created by me for VControlGUI that you find HERE


Requirements:
- Any Vampire card
- Vcontrol installed and in path
- Any amigaos (tested only on AmigaOS 3.1.4 and Coffin)

Features:
VControlGUI offers the same features that VControl provides (something is still missin, maybe they will implemented in the future like the Akiko mode ON/OFF).

This is a list of most relevant features:
- Kickstart selection
- SuperScalar mode ON/OFF
- TurtleMode mode ON/OFF
- CPU detection
- VBR address detection- IDE speed tweaking

VControlGUI is OS friendly and it relies on Intuition library.

MorphOS 3.14 and a new web browser released
Posted by jPV - 13 October 2020 16:25
jPV's Avatar  The MorphOS development team is proud to announce the immediate availability of MorphOS 3.14. While mostly a maintenance and stability release, this update also brings multiple technological improvements in the kernel. Out of these, the most notable are TLS support in exec.library, updates to the Netstack and ixemul.library.
Wayfarer, a new web browser based on a modern mid-2020 branch of WebKit is now available for download from wayfarer.icu. This new app makes it possible to browse most of the web that have become off-limits for Odyssey with its ageing engine. Google apps like Docs, Drive and Maps with Street view are supported just as the Whatsapp or Telegram web interfaces.

pawgr 0.9 AROS x86
Posted by AMIGASYSTEM - 03 October 2020 18:09

Author: Jose Luis Cebrian Pague


pawgr 0.9: Download


pawgr 0.9: This is just a litte utility that renders one graphic of a Spectrum PAW snapshot, then saves it in a .png file.

PAW (Professional Adventure Writing System) is a Spectrum parser, where a parser is some software that lets a writer with little programming knowledge to write her/his own text adventure game.

If you happen to have some old text adventure of your own lying around, you can use pawgr to extract its graphics. This program was not created to be very useful, but just for fun. And it may
some day be part of a "PAW emulator".


An extra pleasure for this review as the author used my AROS One x86 to create screenshots.

MiniSid Realized
Posted by AMIGASYSTEM - 26 September 2020 00:23
AMIGASYSTEM's Avatar 



Author: Bertinetto Bartolomeo Davide

MiniSid v0.02: Download

MiniSid v0.02: Multiplatform Program Developed in Hollywood able to perform SID music of the C64, preliminary version that the author hopes to make it complete.

I discovered that MiniSid is also able to run other audio formats such as MP3, WMA, OGG, FLAC, AAC, WAV, AIFF, MOD, XM, S3M, the Player requires high hardware resources due to the now very high demand of computing speed required by Hollywood applications, in 68k versions the FPU is required.

In the archive you can find the various executables for OS3, OS4, MOS and Windows, imminent also an AROS x86 version, the OS3 version works well also on AROS 68k as shown in the screenshot, the icons of the program were made by me.
