Multimedia application layer: Hollywood 2.0 updated
For the multimedia application Hollywood 2.0 was a small update made available that removes two bugs in the version for AmigaOS4. As you can create with all Hollywood versions AmigaOS4 programs should users of other Hollywood versions (e.g. MorphOS or AmigaOS 3) install this update. The update can be downloaded from now on from the Airsoft Softwair using the title link. (nba) (Translation: wk)

Kowalczyk apologizes to all interested and said that today from 20:00h on he would answer to questions on the IRC channel #amigaworld (server: (cg) (Translation: wk)

MorphOS: Nixskeleton, a Shared Library Skeleton
Sigbjørn 'CISC' Skjære has published an example implementation of a Shared Library called "nixskeleton" in the download section of the "MorphOS Developer Connection". Features of Nixskeleton:
  • Multiple libbases, each opener gets their own private base and global data.
  • A task will always get the same base, thus the library can be indirectly opened elsewhere through the same task and still get the right libbase.
  • However this means callers should avoid sharing libbase across tasks (this is frowned upon anyway), as it'll lead to trouble!
  • You can use libnix I/O and anything requiring constructors etc in the library.
  • Full of comments (hopefully enough) to help you understand the magic involved.
  • The skeleton uses SYSV (with r12base to be able to work its magic) functions, since this is the most likely candidate (it is however possible to adapt it for 68k entries, basically you have to change the global __restore_r13() function).
  • You *can* *not* pass filedescriptors between caller and library, or free() memory allocated by the other etc, doing so will mean certain death, you have been warned! ;)

If there should be any questions please contact the author. (cg) (Translation: dr)

2nd Bochumer Retrobörse for classic videogames
Hi friends and collectors,

after the great success of the first retrofair in Bochum/Germany we now start the 2nd one:

2. Bochumer Retrobörse for classic videogames
19th August 2006, 11.00h -16.00h
Falkenheim, Akademiestrasse 69, Bochum

Many visitors of the first fair at Eurocon 2005 asked us to do another one, because they liked it very much. Now itZs the time. At the Falkenheim in Bochum (Ruhrvalley, about one hour by car from the dutch border) we found a nice location. We have place for about 40 tables for sellers. Some tables are stil available. A table costs 10 Euro (2 tables are 9 Euro each, 3 and more are 8 Euro each). Table sizes are 1,40m x 0,70m.

So if you want to join the RetroFair as a seller, please contact us at Comments and wishes are always welcome.

We plan some highlights for the fair-day, which we will announce at our website in the next few weeks. There is a banner on the website as well and we would ask you to put it on your website to support the event.

We hope to see you in August in Bochum as a seller or a visitor. you (cg) (Translation: cg)

AmigaOS 4: Native version of MCC_Mailtext
MCC-Mailtext is a MUI-class for displaying electronical messages used by e.g. Jabberwocky. The source code can be now compiled by GCC and the new version 3.2 also contains OS4-native binaries. There are not further changes so if you do not use AmigaOS 4 you can use the old version.

A development of MCC_Mailtext is not planned but if there should be problems or bugs there will be further versions. (cg) (Translation: dr)

Retro Gaming: WHDLoad 16.6
With WHDLoad it is possible to install old, copy protected games onto hard disk, furthermore compatibility issues with AGA based and tuned Amigas are fixed. Changes of version 16.6:
  • fix: no more enforcer hits (byte read from adr 0) on directory cache preload on FFS filesystems (Christian)
  • upd: italian documentation is in sync again, thanks David Bergantin for updating it
  • upd: small enhancement for HrtMon to print out expmem boundaries
  • fix: no longer complains about missing ENV: assign
  • fix: bus/address error messages on 68000 corrected
  • fix: the message returned on interrupted resload functions did have the same name for both functions, this has been corrected
  • chg: argument checking for resload functions improved, now the current stack can not be overwritten by resload functions (size of reserved stack space is 64 bytes)
  • new: command GA added to resload_Patch/Seg to get a address and store it inside a variable in the slave
  • fix: modify at ExpMem via resload_Patch works again, was permitted in version 16.5
  • chg: kickemu improved, compiles with PhxAss and AsmOne again, new switch NO68020 for kick31.s to get 68000 compatible code, patches to the kickstart added to avoid overwriting the vector table, this allows WHDLoad to catch exceptions also on 68000 (Don Adan)
  • new: greek translation of documentation, thanks to Dimitris Panokostas of ATO

Team AROS: Bounty #40 for DOS-Packets
For the bounty project #40 for the implementation of DOS packets in the dos.library of the Amiga Research Operating System (AROS) donations can be made now.

At first a device based method was built into AROS, but in the future both procedures should be supported. It is intended to be kompatible with the original AmigaOS and profit from file systems like EXT2, SFS or FAT32/NTFS, as AmigaOS as well as AmigaOS 4 and MorphOS already do.

Furthermore a way for other already existing bounties should be created - for example the ones for the reimplementation of the Amiga roms (Kickstart ROM Replacement phase I, phase II). (snx) (Translation: tz)

  • Bugfix: closing the server selection window does not automatically save ALL your settings, it will only save your nick settings now.
