For the first time with version v0.34 it is possible to create armies on Tales of Tamar. You have to equip your armies on ToT with the help of bought or self produced weapons and arming. The damage of an army depends on the level of arming and the quality of the weapons as well as the class of the arming depends on the arming of an army.
There are over 50 several weapons such as a one-handed weapon, two-handed ones, crossbow or complex besieging weapons like catapult or trebuchet. There are also 15 different opportunities of equipping the army with arming.
You can only produce several weapons when gaining a certain level of research. Armies can be generated, renamed, increased, split, connected, deleted and trained.

Heise: Strato-Domains Offline Possibly Because of Attack
Since yesterday many websites which are hosted at Strato cannot be accessed any longer. Many Amiga-sites are also concerned.

Heise writes:
«An attack to the Strato-server cannot be excluded any longer - in contrary to the loss of current which Strato called to be the reason. The press spokesman Sören Heinze called the incident as a "abnormal shutdown of the memory unit" and told heise online that he accepts a report against unknown in the next time. KPNQwest technician said that an attack from outside is almost impossible. Heinze didn't want to exclusive any possibility as the reason for the offline.»

The Kickstart Archives V1.1
The most important innovation of version 1.1 of KICKSTART ARCHIVES is the integrated freeware-search-engine "S@lz&Pfeffer Leicht 1.0" by Rainer Eschen.

With the help of a pre-calculated JavaScript-file it is possible searching the websites offline on the CD-R. The search engine does not depends on platforms and is directly integrated in the index-tree of KICKSTART ARCHIVES. It is only expected a web-browser which supports frames and JavaScript-standard 1.1. There is a german spoken help function at any time. But there must be said that interpreting the ca. 8 MByte script-file when starting the search engine takes ca. 10 minutes on a 900 MHz Pentium III-system (WinME, IE 5). But each search for a string takes just ca. one second. (Remark: THE KICKSTART ARCHIVES themselves and images are put on a harddrive of Amiga 2000 with Blizzard 2060 and 64MByte RAM under AmigaOS 3.5. The images are burned with MakeCD 3.2.)

Up to now you can find the intro-story, a first opinion poll, a forum, a download area and several outlines to the units in the game.

Please have a look at our side and maybe you've got an idea which things still could be integrated. (unk) (Translation: unk)

New Virus Menaces Internet
In America experts are warning of a new virus, which uses a security leak of the server software 'Bind'. The worm can disconnect complete networks from the Internet and makes websites non-reachable.

Lion, so the name of the new virus, uses a leak in the software 'Bind', used almost on every Linux domain name server. The software controls the coupling of IP and real address.

In the last two days the quantity of attacks has risen about 500%. But only 1/10 of companies have taken countermeasures. The virus sends password and other information to an email address in China. (unk) (Translation: unk)

Full Release of AKIconzGold
The Full Release of my icon collection AKIconzGold is now availble from my homepage and in a few days fom Aminet. The collection contains about 300 icons, most of them are game icons, like in AKIconz 1-4.

The icons are drawn in up to 32 colours, based upon an enhanced MWB/RomIcons/BNSM/Bicons palette. Because they are no New-/GlowIcons they do not need the NewIcons patch nor OS3.5+ but a predefined colour palette for the Workbench.

The preferences for this palette are explained in detail in the now contained guide and gives no disadvantages at all - and is especially for LowSpec-User (030, no gfx board) a colourful (and completely MWB/RomIcons/BNSW/Bicons compatible) alternative to New-/GlowIcons. (unk) (Translation: unk)

SuSE Linux PPC 7.1 Availble from April
On 23.03.2001 on the homepage of SuSE was announced that SuSE Linux PPC 7.1 is available. You can order online or by telephone at SuSE. Deliveries will begin in April said a spokesman. Like for the previous versions, I will create an installation manual for Amiga and announce it here in the amiga-news.

At this point I want to ask coders and users (testers) about a software project i want to start. This project is about the Mac emulator (PPC) "MacOnLinux", that is available for Macs with LinuxPPC. The aim of the project is to port this Mac emulator to Linux-APUS systems. So I just want to know if there is interest from coders and users.

If you are interested, please send an e-mail to me. Please let me know then if you have good knowledge of C and C++ programming for Linux, but all other users are welcome, too. I will inform all of you that are interested the progress of this project so far. (unk) (Translation: unk)
