Virus-Help Denmark News
Jan Andersen from Virus-Help Denmark was often asked if he was able to provide the website of Virus-Help in German and French language, too. Peter Schmidt called his attention to the possibility to make use of "Translator.go".

So, now via Translator.go the website can be translated by request to German, French, Spanish, Italian, and Portugese. Andersen is aware of this not to be the best choice, but better than nothing at all. Base language of the website is still English. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

AmigaOS Change-Logs Release Campaign
Matt Sealey started a petition to find out how big the common interest in the publishing of change-logs since AmigaOS 3.1 really is.

The change-logs contain changes and add-ons compared to the previous versions of the AmigaOS. This could be helpful for the development of new software.

The logs for AmigaOS V2.0 up to V3.1 are available on every Developer CD. According to Matt Sealey Haage & Partner declined publishing their changes on the Developer CD V2.1.

There is the possibility on to sign a petition. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

AAA Award Canceled For The Time Being
Since 1997 the AAA Awards were given to people out of the Amiga area, among other things for their hard- and software products. Among the award winners have been Holger Kruse, Dave Haynie, Marcel Beck, Kermit Woodall, Stefan Burstroem and SoftLogik. Now the awarding of this price will be canceled for the time being. The reasons for this are too little manpower and too low support. In the future the award may be granted again. This depends among other things on the community and Amiga. Everybody who wants to comment on this may write to

The actual AAA Award Homepage at will be offline in the near future. The new one can be reached via (unk) (Translation: (unk)

ANN Looking for Advertising Income
For financing the Amiga Network News Christian Kemp is looking for companies to advertise on ANN. The latest advertising banner showed only 5 US Dollars during 13 days while 50,000 page views were counted. Costs appear to ANN among other things because of web space, telephone (monthly around 100 US Dollars), and domain name. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

Amiga Flame News

Ultra Violent Worlds released
Some time ago Crystal Interactive has announced to offer Amiga games on dual format CD-ROMs, that would contain a version for another computer system along with the version for the Amiga. Now, with Ultra Violent Worlds the first game of this kind has been released for the Amiga and IBM PC compatibles.

Ultra Violent Worlds is a 2D-Shooter with vertical parallax scrolling on three levels, background animations in arcade quality, impressive explosions and atmospheric sound FX inclusive a matching soundtrack. Next to the 1 player mode there's the possibility to play with two people on one split screen at the same time.

The game was developed by the Australian company Vorlan Software. The Amiga version was already released in 1998 and contained several bugs at that time. These were fixed in this re-release.

The Amiga version runs on any Amiga with AGA, 2MB Chip-RAM and 2MB Fast-RAM. The PC version runs on Windows 95/98 with 8MB of free RAM. (unk) (Translation: (unk)

AmigaOS 3.9 Wallpapers (Background Images)
Hello Amigans, as there's the huge amount of 4 new background images on the AmigaOS 3.9 CD since AmigaOS3.5 I have decided to do some myself. The first archive is already available on Aminet under pix/back/os39wallp.lha (1024x800 24Bit). A 800x600 version was just transferred onto Aminet. The 800x600 version is named OS39w800.lha Both archives are freeware and I allow Haage&Partner to use these. (unk) (Translation: (unk)
