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 (Vampire)
Posted by AMIGASYSTEM - 17 October 2020 17:46

Author: Alessio Garzi

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

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

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 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

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.

New CDTV expansions
Posted by alexh - 21 September 2020 18:19
alexh's Avatar  Hi,

I dunno if this is of any interest to many people but Spaniard Amiga dude Edu Arana has created lots of (short runs) of Amiga products recently and I noticed two for the CDTV.

A replacement for the UHF/composite or SCART (CD-1321) video output board. If you've ever bought a CDTV with nothing in this slot you know what a pain it is as the 23-pin video port isn't live without something in this slot.

As well as a 15-pin VGA (15KHz) output (perfect for OSSC) it has an SD card slot for anyone lucky enough to have a Vampire A500 or similar CPU adapter card with the correct header. And an experimental Serial->Wifi feature (not sure where the aerial goes)

He also makes (or is making) a CDTV SCSI card with integrated SCSI2SD and Mouse/Joystick ports

Plus take a browse at the other things he makes for Commodore and Atari computers.

Posted by AMIGASYSTEM - 12 September 2020 23:12

Author: Shinkuro (Gianfranco Gignina)

NoWinED 0.83 + Sources: Download

NoWinED is a cross-platform text Editor for OS3/OS4/AROS x86/MOS written in MUI capable of handling multiple files simultaneously using "pages" for each file.

Unfortunately some features of NoWinED are not present on all four operating systems, due to minimal incompatibilities. Moreover, switching from one Amiga system to another is not always possible to use the same editor programs as they may have incompatibilities.

NoWinED offers:

- Multiple file management through pages controllable by means of "Title buttons", a list and / or a convenient context menu at the right button (appears automatically when necessary) to scroll the title buttons;
- Context menus;
- Search and replacement module;
- Search within open files;
- Drag & Drop files: dragging one or more files on the NoWinED list opens the files in new pages, if you drag a file in a page then the file will be opened in the current page. Finally, if you drag multiple files on a page, then the first file will be opened on the current page and the other files on new pages (on AROS it lacks the
- Basic functions of a texteditor (c&p, select all, undo and redo, etc...).
- Support for keyboard use;
- UTF-8 support (It can load UTF files and export UTF-8 with and without BOM, or in ASCII);
- CR/LF/CR+LF support (It is able to load any type of txt file and export CR/LF/CR+LF tests);
- Intelligent n-column text truncation support;
- Support for backup of all open files configurable;
- Support for automatic saving of the current configurable file;
- Programmable function keys (Fn);
- Graphic printing;
- Present on all 4 Amiga platforms;
