Strategy game: "Open Transport Tycoon Deluxe" updated
Open Transport Tycoon Deluxe is an open source clone of the Microprose game "Transport Tycoon Deluxe", that "enhances the game experience dramatically".

Frank W. has now updated his Amiga port of OpenTTD. Amongst other things, the "FastRAM problem" of the 68k version has been fixed, the keyboard is supported now and the language files have been updated.

To play OpenTTD in fullscreen mode, either press <Alt>-<Return> while the game is running or change the "fullscreen" value in the file "openttd.cfg" to "true". (cg) (Translation: cg)

SystemPatch: version 2.3 released
Sante Nocciolino's SystemPatch that patches several system routines to gain some system performance on Amiga computers (68020+) is now available in version 2.3.

Improvements in version 2.3 (30 KB):
  • Fixed bugs in AllocRaster(); some WB games like VChess, MineRunner, ... were saying there was not enough memory (reported by Luca "Hexaae" Longone)
  • A lot of small enhancements, minor speedups to some gfx functions and bugfixes
  • AllocRaster() patch causes probelms with games like Quake68k and BloodNet AGA, now fixed (reported by Luca "Hexaae" Longone)
  • WritePixel() bug that causes system freezing with Octamed SoundStudio when using its Synthetic Sound Editor (reported by Luca "Hexaae" Longone)
  • ENV:FAllocRasterExcludeList can contain a list of tasks to be excluded from AllocRaster() chip to fast memory promotion. I've to do a better implementation for the task exclusion of AllocRaster() patch
  • Added patches for non FBlit systems: BltBitMap(), Draw(), BltClear(). Previous BltClear() required FBlit but was installed too when FBlit was not running
  • Added: ClearScreen(), ClearEOL(), InitRastPort(), TextLength(), SetFont()
  • Other improvements I don't remember

MorphOS: Version control system Subversion 1.0.4 (Clients) ported
Subversion is a version control system, which allows you to keep old versions of files and directories (usually source code), keep a log of who, when, and why changes occurred, etc., like CVS, RCS or SCCS.

Actually Subversion is meant to be a better CVS, so it has most of CVS's features. Generally, Subversion's interface to a particular feature is similar to CVS's, except where there's a compelling reason to do otherwise.

Subversion keeps a single copy of the master sources. This copy is called the source "repository"; it contains all the information to permit extracting previous versions of those files at any time.

The current MorphOS release comes for now only with native ports of the Subversion clients: svn and svnversion. The archive also contains various documentation about Subversion in different formats including the Subversion-book (html, pdf, xml). Please note that only the documentation about the clients is relevant for now. For a next release it is planned to include the demon, apache modules and server administration tools too.

The current MorphOS release is only interesting for you if you have to deal with SVN repositories for your projects, else it might be actually quite useless - so better don't download the archive.

Note: the clients were ported by me, because I needed them for one of my projects. I use them daily for this project and they run very stable and they do the job very well (which I didn't expected after I got the 26 MB sources finally to compile). That means they are in parts untested and still could contain serious bugs or other (minor) problems could show up.

Download the archive under the title link. (snx)
