Steffen Nitz (ANF)

Current state of DKG II and SN-Archiv homepage
The SN-Archiv homepage is now accessable via the short URL, too.

Of SN-EuroArchiv is version 1.95 under development. Image support for the HTML support for course coins sets was added that will be available in the future for special coins, too. Additionally, some bugs were removed that concerned the HTML support. An example for the new ccs generating can be found here (needs some loading time because of the images).

Steffen Nitz also decided to create an images gallery for SN-EuroArchiv. The page is still under construction and can be accessed via this URL.

There are thoughts to create a similar gallery for "Die Kleine Gilde II" to show the scope of the game. DKG II v0.70 is almost finished but the author has had not found the time to do the last adaptions to release this version. Things like town fires, burglary and sabotages like setting fires or placing bombs at competitiors buildings were added. You can now place things in buildings that are quite helpful, e.g. against fire and burglary. (ps) (Translation: wk)

Developing tool: Subversion 1.1.4 for Amiga ported
Subversion is a software packet for maintaining of source texts and binary data just like the older RCS or CVS. Above all it is meant as a replacement for CVS and has not its bugs e.g. insufficient maintenance of binary data.

In this port made by Olaf Barthel the functions for maintaining the Amiga file attributes (hold, archive, script, pure, etc.) and file comments have been added.

The archive contains the documentation, the whole changes made on the source code of the Amiga version and the programs (client/server) translated for AmigaOS 2.x/3.x/4.x.

Calo Nord (ANF)

Update of AmigaSYS 1.7.1 for E-UAE (beta version)
AmigaSYS is available in a new beta version for E-UAE. AmigaSYS is a collection of a comfortable Workbench environment for use with the Amiga emulator UAE in the way of AIAB ("Amiga in a box").

AmigaSYS contains no Kickstart-ROM because of legal reasons and you need a Workbench 3.0/3.1-disk. The installation itself runs automatically.

To the current beta version for E-UAE Calo Nord wrote:

"Many users have already heard of AmigaSYS and some of you were missing the E-UAE-Version for Linux, MorphOS and AmigaOS4. Now there is a first and also last version for E-UAE. Because of the limited possibilities of E-UAE we will not work with it in future.

We have released a beta version of AmigaSYS 1.7.1 with little modifications for E-UAE. Under MorphOS the packet unfortunately does not work proper which is caused by E-UAE.

Under AmigaOS4 there is a bug when unarchiving the Startup-Sequence. After the installation this must be copied manually from the archive to the installed AmigaSYS directory. A packet created under AmigaOS4 will follow soon.

Under Linux AmigaSYS should work so far with the known limitations. If there are bugs after installing the archive the packet probably was extracted in a wrong way. This is not caused by AmigaSYS but by the unarchiver program or the Linux file system.

The current version has been successfully tested under AmigaOS4, Debian Linux PPC, SuSE 9.2 x86, Mandrake Linux 10.1 x86 and Mandrake Linux LE 2005 x86.

Because we will not develop further for E-UAE there is no support. But bug reports can be always sent to my e-mail address. If E-UAE should get remarkable progress some times later I probably will continue my work."

AmigaOS4: Strategy game engines FreeCNC and Stratagus ported
Juha Niemimaki has ported the realtime strategy games engines Stratagus 2.1 and FreeCNC 0.3 for AmigaOS4. The author asks you to note the instructions for starting a game.

Stratagus supports games like Invasion - Battle of Survival (contained), Wargus (WarCraft 2, requires the original data files) and Astroseries. There are some sound problems at the last mentioned one.

FreeCNC supports early Command & Conquer games. The C&C1 demo version works but may crash when quitting it. Red Alert does not work.

David Bentham's started a spring special on his Mac-on-Linux-Live-CD PegXMac: a single payment will be accepted for the price and the updates for the duration of this special.

With this one-time payment, one gets updates for four months, not just one, so the cost is a lot lower. This offer covers all variants: Pegasos II, Pegasos I and AmigaOne. (snx) (Translation: dm)
