ArtEffect colourful
Did you think of the tool symbols of ArtEffect looking a little bit colourless and dismal for a 24 bit picture editing program, did`nt you? Then you will like the new one because it offers 256 colours - even matching the packing: Download.

New Strategy Game Planned
Alien Imperium is supposed to become a network and Internet game which is supposed to support several operating systems, because it will be programmed in Java. It will be made in co-operation of Amig@lien with AccM Software Allianz.

In this space strategy game you have to be superior in technology and tactics to other races. For instance you can invent a lot, but you can also enter alliances as well as other contracts.

Everybody who liked Imperium Terranum will be fine with this game. This game will be delivered on CD-ROM and will certainly be released for the AmigaOne, but also a classic-Amiga version is planned. We hope you are already excited.

Here is a hint for all who cannot wait for it: We hope to be able to show a graphic and sound presentation to the computer revolution 2001. (Ricco Clemens)

Those ones who want to support the project "Alien Imperium" should mail to AccM or Amig@lien. We are grateful for each help! Manfred Rauer (POI)

opendivx.library Finished
opendivx.library, which is a shared library for 68k and WarpUP systems for replaying OpenDivX animations, has been finished and can be downloaded on

It has been already released a special version of Moovid which uses opendivx.library (because Moovid is commercial, this special version only plays OpenDivX; you must have the full version for playing different formats).

The opendivx.library archive contains also information for programmers how to use opendivx.library in own projects.

New Developer in NetBSD Team
Jukka A Andberg has been included in the NetBSD-team. He has written a first (still incomplete) version of a wscons[1]-driver for NetBSD/Amiga and will now complete it.

Wscons is the console driver interface which does not depend on the machine and which is already in use on many NetBSD-architectures. It enables virtual switching consoles and makes the simultaneous use of text consoles and X11-screen(s) possible which is a characteristic not included in the ite- (Internal Tty-Emulator) system which is used in NetBSD/Amiga, so far.

Further information:

Appeal to Rainboot Users
There will be some decisive changes in the next version of Rainboot for users of graphic boards. Because I have not a CGfx or a Picasso96 system and I have got some messages that there are still some problems with Rainboot. Though it works generally, I ask all who are still having problems with Rainboot on Cgfx/P96 to contact me in order to be able to fix those. Thanks a lot!

Confusion about Proceedings Against Met@box
»Currently a report of the stock exchange information service Prior produces some confusion. Referring to this the public prosecution Frankfurt investigates the set-top-box producer Met@box from Hildesheim because of the suspicion of manipulation of the stock exchange. Already at the beginning of the year the business offices of the company has been investigated. At inquiry the public prosecution Frankfurt referred to their colleague in Hildesheim; the supreme public prosecutor Seemann confirmed that a proceedings was carrying out but refused to give further information. Instead of that he referred to the public prosecution Hannover which did not make a comment as well as Prior himself: "The chief is in vacancy", was the answer at inquiry from Heise online.«

New PlayGUI Version and Special Version
From my homepage (Amiga/Projects/PlayGUI) a new version of PlayGUI can be downloaded from today. (Unfortunately still not from the PlayGUI page due to a server problem.)

PlayGUI is a all-around play GUI for mods, midis, Mp3s, and samples with many features which can be embellished with skins and themes.

  • Bugfix: slider gadgets are displayed at the right position, now.
  • Bugfix: sample-buffer showed 0 if it were set to maximum.
  • Bugfix: GMPlay filter didn't work - this function has been removed
  • The menus have been switched to upper- /lower case for easier reading
  • Font problem fixed
  • No more 3D frames for the skin

Moreover there is a 7MB special version of PlayGUI on my homepage containing the latest version and additionally all of the skins and themes available at this time. 90% of these are not to find at Aminet.

Amiga RC5 Team Effort: The client version 2.8012(build 466) contains a bug, that maybe gives wrong results of the keys.

»Obviously there is a bug in all 2.8012 clients (build466) that put out wrong results. D.Net recommends to use version 2.8010(build 463). It is unknown if this bug is in RC5, OGR, or both. It is also unknown if the latest Amiga client 2.8011 contains this bug, too. At this time I recommend to use build 463 from this download area. More information will follow wen available.«

Version 2.15 beta of SecondSpin was released. Many minor and some major bugs were removed but the prefs window will still cause a system crash on some systems. SecondSpin is an audio converter to convert several audio formats to MPEG. Also you can convert MPEG-files to AIFF format with it.

Inutilis News
There are to new links concerning Gothic at the Records area of Inutilis. Also there are some interesting facts about Moonlight. Moonlight now has a own email-address,, and a Norwegian radio-dj mailed me and asked me if he could use moonlight-material for broadcasting. This special broadcast about Gothic has nearly 300,000 listeners.

I decreased the photo gallery out of order because my memory on the server is running out.

Something I want to know - is there anybody out there who is still using SoundFX without a math-coprocessor? If you do so (that means that you have a 68000, 68020, 68030 without 68881/882) please mail me.
