Demo database:
Andreas Szabo has developed a web interface for Richard Wagenführer's Amiga demo scene database with more than 12000 entries. He paid a lot attention to the so-called "demo packdiscs": On each demo you can read on which packdisc it has been released, on the other side you can, of course, also browse the contents of the packdiscs.

WB Super Games and Payback Fan CD available
Wehrheim, Germany, June 19th, 2006.

We are glad to inform you, that we are finished the WB Super Games and the Payback Fan CD. The two products are available in our OnlineShop.

WB Super Games - The Workbench games collection for your AmigaOS 4

WB Super Games is a Workbench game collection for AmigaOS 4 which includes 7 different games. LogiLog, Alinearis and Cerebrum guarantee fun for all fans of brain gym. But also action fans will find them enjoyable. They can train themselves with the network games AXO, Memoria, Serpentis and Stoertebeker for one or two players. There is always the option to run other programs while playing, because WB Super Games are executed on the Workbench. So you can control a chat-program for example. Moreover, all games are developed to use minimal resources, so that there is still enough system performance for other applications running at the same time. The collection was developed especially for AmigaOS 4 PPC-native. It does not need any additional libraries or SDL.

Die WB Super Games is delivered on CD and costs just 9,95 Euro.

Payback Fan CD - The AddOn CD for Payback

Payback is one of the most popular amiga games of the last years and can still fascinate a loyal fan community. Because of that we have created a CD for Payback fans. The Payback Fan CD is an AddOn CD for the Amiga game Payback. On the CD you can find 12 background pictures and 16 Patterns for the Workbench as well as skins for AmigaAmp. The highlight of the CD are the 22 still unpublished Maps, which guarantee you many hours of fun. If you like to create your own levels, you can find many textures of all types on the CD. Additionally you can find a exclusive interview of James Daniel, all "Amiga Speed" tests, the Amig@lien Payback Website and many reports about Payback. As a Payback Fan you absolutely need this CD.

The Payback Fan CD is delivered on CD and costs just 5,95 Euro.

A big thanks goes to the author of Payback James Daniels for his support.

Standards and specs: The Interchange File Format (IFF)
On the developerWorks pages of IBM, in the "Standards and specs" line-up, the Interchange File Format (IFF) from Electronic Arts, which is used on the Amiga in particular, was now recognized as well.

In his article, Peter Seebach says that this format, introduced in 1985, already had many of the features still sought today in modern file formats, as well as what can be learned from it with regard to the latter, such as XML. (snx) (Translation: cad)
