TroikaNG: Update of the homepage with frequent asked questions
At the homepage of TroikaNG the first questions and answers were entered. Therefore AGP is cancelled because except for the Articia northbridge only the IBM chip CPC 925 offers this function, but it doesn't work with the cpu chosen for the Amy'05 board.

Regarding to the final consumer price 400 British pounds would have been a very careful estimation, but in theory it could also come to 400 US dollarss (ca. 330 EUR at present). (snx) (Translation: ts)

KoboDeluxe 0.4pre10

Herbert Klackl has ported the SDL based Shoot'em up game KoboDeluxe to MorphOS (screen shot). The game offers a fast 8 way scrolling, 17 different kinds of adversaries and 50 maps.


ezTCP 0.5 alpha

The PPC native TCP/IP stack ezTCP by Pavel 'Sonic' Fedin is now available in the alpha version 0.5. This is a bounty project, current contribution is 1095,73 US dollar.

Among the improvements in version 0.5 is the fix to set the socket owner correctly, required e.g. for Jabberwocky. Also the program checks for an already present instance of the bsdsocket.library within the memory at launch.

MorphOS: AIFF/AIFF-C, RIFF WAVE and Sun/NeXT audio player for AmiNetRadio
Three new player plugins for AmiNetRadio 3.x have been released by Christian 'tokai' Rosentreter.

wave.player 3.10

The player reads RIFF WAVE (Resource Interchange File Format Audio Waveform) files and supports mono and stereo samples which are stored in 8bit - 32bit linear PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) or with A-law, -law, Float 32bit or Float 64bit compression.

aiff.player 3.3

This player adds support for Apple's Audio Interchange File Format. It reads mono and stereo AIFF/AIFF-C files, and as wave.player it supports samples stored with 8bit - 32bit PCM or compressed samples with A-law, -law, Float 32bit or Float 64bit data.

au.player 3.2

The last one of the trio is for Sun/NeXT Audio files. It supports interleaved mono and stereo data which is stored in Big- or Little-Endian byte order. Like both other players it understands 8bit, 16bit, 24bit and 32bit linear PCM and A-law, -law, Float 32bit and Float 64bit compressed samples.

All three players come with documenation and are freeware. You can get them at the title link. (snx)
