Constantinos Nicolakakis (E-Mail)

Tool: SRename 3.8.0
Constantinos Nicolakakis has published the final version 3.8.0 of the tool "SRename". With this tool you can comfortably rename files. The following features have been added in the new version:

New features:
  • Added the STATS (ST) option to display statistics such as:
  • Directories scanned
  • Filenames processed
  • Directory names processed
  • Files renamed
  • Directories renamed
  • File comments changed
  • Directory comments changed
  • Time taken in seconds
  • Added "SRbench"-script to archive for performing standard toggle case benchmark
  • Removed the 255 directory depth level limit. Now more than 2 billion levels of depth are allowed.
  • Now when the name or comment of a directory is changed "(dir)" is appended to the output to indicate that the object type is a directory.


  • Fixed bug where giving FILES and DIRS together would result in no files being renamed. Now FILES cancels DIRS as it should have.
  • In renumbering mode directories that match the basename are no longer processed. Now if the starting number is in a filename only filenames will be renumbered, and if the starting number is in a directory name only directory names will be renumbered.

Further changes:

  • Numerous optimizations resulted in speed gains, particularly in startup time. Because the main bottleneck for SRename is the speed of the OS Rename system call, the percentage of increase in speed relatively to the previous version, will be greater for fast systems and smaller or non existent for slow systems.

It was born with the idea to create the ultimate Tetris, so the Peruvian group The Twin Eagles Group (well-known because of their Amiga game Gunbee F99, published by the APC-TPC) laid their foces on game-play and fun and later then combined it with sexy photos of their game member Orugaloca, where she poses for example only with an Amiga T-Shirt or a Boing-Ball.

  • Selectable difficulty: Easy - Normal - Hard
  • A highscore for each game difficulty
  • 8 hot photos + 5 game secrets (1 player)
  • 8 additional photos (2 players)
  • 5 Power-Ups + Max Turbo monkey
  • 10 fantastic latin music themes + 36 sound effects
  • Smooth pieces movement
  • English or Spanish version on the CD-ROM

Genesi: Taking Part in HCC-Dagen Show in the Netherlands
Genesi SARL announced their participation at the Dutch HCC-Dagen from 28th through 30th November. Reportedly this is the biggest show of its kind in the Benelux lands, with attendance in previous years reaching 100,000 by some accounts.

They'll be guests at the stand (D106, hall 9) of Tyra-Group.

Tyra-Group is going to introduce their CS-2 system ("Communication Station 2") at HCC-Dagen. This is a new system configuration that is small in size (A4), but with space for a standard 5.25" drive, a 5.25" slim bay, a 5.25" "quarterdrive bay," a 3.5" floppy drive, two hard-drives as well as expansion cards of normal height with additional room for high graphic cards. The TFT screen can be changed out as can the powerpack, both standard, off-the-shelf components.

The "CS-2 Deluxe" is a complete home multimedia system based on Genesi's Pegasos and running MorphOS as well as Tyra-Group's proprietary software. (snx) (Translation: dm)

The CAPS Team (ANF)

CAPS Update
The CAPS team (who concern themselves with the archiving of old, copy-protected Amiga games, to include copy-protection written on the flags) has converted another bunch of games into CAPS format. This format may for example be read by new UAE versions.

A list of the new games is available from the CAPS homepage. In the meantime more than 1200 games have been archived, among them some very scarce titles such as "Hacker" or a few of the first games from Electronic Arts. CAPS is now looking for people who own other original games and would like to help with the archiving.

Additionally the Amiga version of CAPS Library, which makes possible the use mounting of diskette images that are then worked on by CAPS, is being overhauled. (cg) (Translation: dm)
