MorphOS: Descent II and APool-GL ported
Ilkka Lehtoranta has ported the games Descent II (screenshot) and APool-GL (screenshot) to MorphOS.

Descent II defaults to 1024x768 fullscreen and it seems some systems may have problem with that. If you get black screen in the game press F2 and select smaller screen or remove -fullscreen option from the startup script.

According to the author, the Billiard game APool-GL is a bit slow but playable.

The AROS Archives: File Area for AROS opened
"The AROS Archives" is up and ready to accept your files. This web site will be the main repository for all AROS software, but we need your help. Software needs to be uploaded to the site. Developers are definitely encouraged to upload their own software.

Windows: "Neues"-Starter Version 1.2
Für Fans der Fernseh-Computer-Sendung "Neues" hat Martin Henke ein komfortables Tool zum Starten der Realplayer-Streams der verschiedenen Sendungen erstellt. Beim "Neues"-Starter gibt es mit der Version 1.2 folgende Neuerungen:

  • Bei Updates wird jetzt ein separates Fenster geöffnet, dass die Versionsübersicht (History) anzeigt. So kann der Benutzer entscheiden, ob er das Update herunterladen will oder nicht.
  • Im Hauptfenster gibt es jetzt den Unterpunkt "Versionsübersicht" im "Hilfe"-Menü, über den Informationen über die aktuell installierte und die vorherigen Version (History) angezeigt wird.
  • Bugfix: Bei Benutzeraccounts ohne Admininistratorrechte (Windows 2000/XP) stürzt das Programm jetzt nicht mehr beim Programmstart aufgrund fehlenden Schreibzugriffs ab.
  • Bugfix: Kompatibilitätsproblem mit Windowx XP behoben (Start des Setup-Programms beim Aktualisieren)
  • Über die INI-Datei "StartNeues.ini" (wird beim 1. Programmstart mit Schreibrechten erstellt) im Programmverzeichnis können das automatische Überprüfen auf Aktualisierungen und das Laden der Versionsübersicht (verwendet InternetExplorer-Control) ausgeschaltet werden. Manuelle Aktualisierungen über das Menü "Datei" sind dabei nach wie vor möglich.

Database: Golden Amiga Games Encyclopedia updated
The Golden Amiga Games Encyclopedia by Volker 'Dr. Zarkov' Mohr has been updated to version 14.0. 100 games have been added, the information of 31 further ones updated.

The online-database started as an AmigaGuide document with the goal to list all Amiga Games that were compatible with AGA and 68020+ Amigas.

Because many games didn't work on upgraded machines, Volker Mohr started testing them with all kind of degrading tools and added this information to the database. Today, besides the compatibility, you can also find information about the publishers, cheats, docs, walkthroughs and screenshots. (snx)
