AmigaMPEGPlayer and writepixel for AmigaSDK
Today, I have publishe the first MPEG video player for the AmigaSDK on my homepage. This player already runs quite fast (160x120: 82 FPS, 325x288: 17 FPS on a PII-333), despite of the for the moment still absolutely unoptimised FPU translator inside the SDK. Sound is still missing, but this still is not supported by the current SDK, anyway.

Furthermore there there is an little VP-Assembler demo, that creates a realtime colour tone with transparency effects. Both programs are to find at the download area, including source codes.

Who is not a developer and therefor has no SDK installed, can have a closer look at three high resolution screenshots (incl. running AmigaSDK-Quake), at least.

Small Bug in both, DA III and Demo
DA III: The picture drawer will not get copyed, if wanted. The Tooltype for the picture path is set correctly in any case. In this case please, copy the wanted drawer manual.

DA III Demo: Due to a little oversight some string input fields need the MUI-class Betterstring.mcc, which was no provision originally. If the program would end up with a MUI error message, copy Betterstring.mcc to MUI:Libs/MUI. This subclass is available on Aminet at dev/mui. A bug-fixed version for the demo will soon be available on the homepage at the titlelink.

The First Moorhuhn was created on an Amiga
Hard to beleave, the first Moorhuhn was created on an Amiga:

«The team that started work soon and was put together due to disposability and skills by Ziemlinski, consisted of five persons. Beside himself the in the szene well known 3D artist Ingo Mesche belonged to the team. Ingo, father of the Moorhuhn alread had a digital poultry in the drawer of his desk, which was only waiting to be shot at last. On would hardly beleave it, but this was waiting there since about 15 years. That time it was designed as a pixle figure with D-Paint/Amiga and the even got a little walk-on, but never was published. So it lain around useless untill the Phenomendia AG needed a chicken. »
Full article at the titlelink. (German)

Though I am against "shooter games" in general, I have to admit that I already made friend with the Moorhuhn and would be happy about an Amiga port of it.

Amiga: Conceptions for the Developer's Support
Gary Peake, from Amiga, has published conceptions from Amiga for the planned Developer's Support Project on the AmigaOpen mailinglist. Those should give an impression of the project, not necessary all the up-comming services are listed there and in particular the details are not fixed or published, yet.

At this time the support is subdivided into four levels. The correct setup shall be announced in proximo times.

For the Developer's Meetings/Trainings there are four dates a year scheduled at different locations. Furthermore there will be two events in Snoqualmie, the head office of Amiga. Moreover Amiga will publish videos and a complete series of books. This series will represent the programming reference for the new Amiga system. Ten books are planned dealing with different subjects of the Amiga VP programmig at a target price of 29.95USD a book, for the time beeing.

There will be a Certification Project for interessted developers. It is beeing worked on the correct specs for this project. In general there will be the possibility to get certification for applications and hardware from Amiga. After a successful certification a developer will get access to the following:
  • Amiga Mall - for selling products.
  • Marketing support.
  • Specific developer support.
  • The use of trademarks and logos for both, certificated applikations and hardware.
  • Recording to a database of AmigaNG applications and hardware extensions, which can be searched by users.

At there is a IRC Channel #developer available. After the secure mechanisms will work there will be NDA style chats with Fleecy Moss, Bill McEwen and other members of the Amiga team.

Web Panels will be established. Those will be separated into private (NDA) and public forums.

There will be Updates and some surprises for registered developers, those people who did not purchase the SDK and will not be able to access.

DreamCDGuide V0.96
DreamCDGuide is a MUI program that makes naviagation through an AminetCD more easy and it offers many features, e.g. an inserted AminetCD is recocnized automatically.

This program needs a 68020+ CPU and MUI V3.8+. The use of this sofware together with LHA V2.1 leads to crashes, at the time beeing. But together with LHA V1.38 the current version for DreamCDGuide runs without problems.

Amiga2001 - The St. Louis Extravaganza
From May 31st to April 1st, 2001, the Amiga2001 will take place in St. Louis. As always, this big show will be organized by Bob Sharp:

From: Bob Scharp
Subject: Amiga2001 announced - The St. Louis Extravaganza

Amiga Fans everywhere,

Amigan-St. Louis is proud to announce that the next
Gateway Computer Show...  Amiga2001, will be held
on March 30, 31 and April 1, 2001.

This exciting event, Amiga2001 - An Amiga Odyssey,
will be our best yet. Due to the demise of the
Henry VIII hotel, it's being torn down, we had to
move our venue to a new location.

The good news is that this place has lots to offer.
The show will be hosted at the Sheraton Westport Plaza.
This Sheraton has the same old world charm that
the Henry VIII did, but offers much more. It has
parking for over 3,000 cars. It's location, at
West Port Plaza is really terrific, as that puts
it in the middle of entertainment, restaurants,
pubs, shopping, eateries, movie theaters, live
theater, a jazz club and much more. Under cover
parking is available too.

We'll be posting something on our web site by the
end of September, so keep an eye out. In the mean
time, get your vacations lined up for March 30 - April 1.
Perhaps you'd like to come early or stay longer and
arrange a little fun in St. Louis. This is an
exciting town, and your family would be certain to
enjoy it if you bring them.

Until next time.

Best Regards,
Bob Scharp,

Amigan-St. Louis
P.O. Box 672
Bridgeton, MO 63044

shows in the Americas! For more informaiton, check out
