AmigaOS 4.0 Replacement CDs
Leuven, Belgium - 10 January, 2005

As a service to our loyal customers without broadband Internet, Hyperion Entertainment in collaboration with Soft 3 is now offering all registered Amiga OS 4.0 users the possibility to order a professionally duplicated CD to replace the original Amiga OS 4.0 Developer Pre-release CD which came with your AmigaOne SE or XE.

The new CD not only contains the first Amiga OS 4.0 update and updated SDK which are available for download from our site but also a substantially reworked and updated "contribution folder".

MicroA1 customers need not apply as this CD should already be in their possession.

Further details can be found here. (cg) (Translation: cg)

Tales of Tamar: 3D drivers for Radeon cards anyone?
Martin Wolf from the Tales of Tamar team is searching for a 3D driver for Radeon cards to develop this medieval MMP fantasy RPG played via e-mail further. He wrote:

"This is a call for help to all developers in the Amiga market! For the time being our developers are among other things busy with the realization of a 3D map for the Amiga. Under the title link you can have a look at some of the first screenshots of an early Amiga beta version that is being developed for now on an Amiga 4000/040 with Cybervision 64/3D.

Though we own some Pegasos computers with Radeon cards there does not seem to exist a 3D driver yet for this system that is made available to developers. It's for sure that an Amiga 4000/040 is to slow to develop a good 3D map on it.

So our question is:
  • Is there a 3D driver for Radeon cards?
  • Is anybody right now developing a 3D driver for Radeon cards?
  • And if such a person exists: would this person possibly be willing to put it at our disposal for the development of the "Tales of Tamar" 3D map for the Amiga or Pegasos?
    (Alternatively we would be ready to distribute the driver via Eternity if such an interest should exist.)
At this time the card is fully functional only under WinUAE with Warp3D emulation or via software renderer. Systems with Voodoo or Permedia2 cards we do not own." (snx) (Translation: wk)

New poll: Which operating system is your workhorse?
In our last poll we asked you about your judgement of the Amiga's future and wether you would perhaps be ready to invest once more in an "Amiga" (respectively a clone). The results of this poll can be found here.

In our current poll (title link) we are interested in the operating system you are using privately most:
  • AmigaOS 3 on a real Amiga
  • AmigaOS 3 on an emulator
  • AmigaOS 4
  • MorphOS
  • AROS
  • A combination of 1-5, e.g. OS4 or MorphOS at home, OS3 on a laptop or at work
  • One of the systems named under 1-5 in conjunction with another system (Windows, Mac OS, Linux...)
  • The OS I use most has nothing to do with the Amiga (Windows, Mac OS, Linux...)
The actual result can be found here, while we explicitly point out that the results aren't representative in any way. (cg) (Translation: wk)

AmigaOS4: bugfixed version of the game xbill 2.4
The AmigaOS4 port of the small point'n'click shooter xbill was replaced by a bugfixed version after the original OS4 version had crashed very fast on some systems.

The aim of xbill is to prevent the computers supervised by the player from being infected with a widely spread operating system.

Emulator: E-UAE 0.8.27 (AmigaOS 4, MorphOS, Linux, Mac OS)
Richard Drummond has published a new version of the Amiga emulator E-UAE. E-UAE is the attempt to make available the newest version of WinUAE to users of different operating systems.

In E-UAE 0.8.27 the compability has been further improved because elements of the "Core Emulation" from WinUAE 0.9.9.x have been used. The 68k-emulator is now 5 % faster because of some optimations and under Mac OS X the emulator now works up to 20 % faster. Furthermore several bugs have been fixed. You can get a complete list of all changes from the Changelog.

The version for Linux (x86) is already available under the title link. Versions for AmigaOS 4, MorphOS, Linux (PPC) and Mac OS X will follow soon. (cg) (Translation: dr)
