MorphOS: Profiler PrfLib 0.12
PrfLib is a library which delivers statistical figures to a running program finding out which part requires how much processor time.

Because PrfLib does use a "Trick" of the GCC the library only works with programs which were compiled with it (tested with version 2.95.3 and 2.95.4).

WinAros: New version based on Microsoft Virtual PC
A new version of WinAros is available now under the title link. With WinAros it is possible to try the operating system AROS in Windows and to test programs which were developed e. g. with AmiDevCpp. The latest version is based on the todays nightly build of AROS.

Contrary to its predecessor this version of WinAros uses the Microsoft Virtual PC 2004 (Screenshot).

Compared to the previously used QEMU Virtual PC is more user friendly and offers a better file exchange. An updated WinAros-version for QEMU will be finished shortly. (snx) (Translation: tz)

Cell CPU Card for for PC's with strong Power Supply
The US company Mercury wants to provide PC's more power with the help of a plugin board. Mainly for 3D-rendering, image processing and other power consuming applications advantages are expected - because of a Cell-BE-chip, which powers the PlayStation 3 in a similar application.

Editor's Thoughts and Introduction:
 I am typing this on one of the hottest days this year, in the midst 
of a heat warning that covers more than two full days. Now while 
that's no problem for our readers in the southern hemisphere, it's a
pretty good reason for those in this part of the world to just stay 
inside and play with your Amiga. We do have information on a couple of 
games this issue that could help you pass the time enjoyably.
 It has been a pretty quiet month overall and not all the news that 
did happen is cheerful. We were disappointed to hear of the canceling 
of AmiRevival. This is another sign that the Amiga community really 
needs "a shot in the arm" to use an old American expression. It might 
have received a bit of a boost this month with the announcement of a 
small number of refurbished A1s becoming available. Details below. 
And, surprise of surprises perhaps, there's even a cool new expansion 
module available for the A600. Glad to see the smallest Amiga still 
gets remembered from time to time. But we're still waiting for ready 
availability of new hardware. That would really make the summer more 
enjoyable. In the meantime, there are some fun things available in the 
community. We hope you enjoy reading about a few of them in this 
issue.
 Brad Webb,
 Editor

AmiGBG, the crew known from the Swedish Amiga fair with the same name, 
and Compusphere, a group of true scene veterans, joins forces and 
brings you Amiga Summer Party 2006. The event will be a true scene 
party with all the proper ingredients. We begin with some demo coding 
and beer, then we throw in some nice tunes mixed with some awesome 
graphics. And for the grand finale we spice it up another notch with a 
big kick ass barbeque.

www.amigasummerparty.se
Time: 25-27/8 2006 18:00
Place: Jorlandagarden, Gothenburg, Sweden

The name of the game is party, demos, music and gfx for Amiga, C64, 
Atari & PC. So join us at Jorlandagarden on the 25-27 of August, for a 
feast ye shall never forget. Meet the people, watch the demos, listen 
to the mods and party like there was new Amiga hardware.

Entrance fee to the party is 150 SEK with computer and 100 SEK 
without.

After much deliberation it saddens me (Ryu) to announce AmiRevival 
2006 has been cancelled.

I and a few other team members have tried hard to secure exhibitors 
over recent weeks with not much success. We had been given assurances 
by a few organisations that they would attend, or at least their 
products would be there but due to a lack of communications with them 
I have made the decision the show would not be viable.


Anyone who has purchased tickets will be getting a full refund in the 
next few days and if anyone has made any bookings that will leave them 
out of pocket please do contact me. I will do my best to try and 
compensate.

Many thanks to those who did pre-book tickets, both visitors and 
exhibitors, and thanks to those who contacted me over the past couple 
of weeks.

Further more I will be taking a step back from the scene for the 
foreseeable future, I will keep IntuitionBase.com online and will 
update it from time to time but I won't be sinking much effort into 
it. The Scunthorpe Amiga Group will remain but no meetings are 
planned, and I won't make any more plans until things pick up again.

Thanks to all those who have supported me over the years, I hope to 
keep in touch with you all!

Adios and thanks for all the fish

Amont-Infomatique recently received delivery of a small consignment of 
AmigaOne motherboards for testing prior to redistribution among all 
AmigaOne dealers worldwide.

They did need some time to test them and prepare the new 
configurations, but you will very shortly be able to order a 
reconditioned AmigaOne from your favourite dealer!

Warning: quantities will be limited.

Update 16 July 2006 Some A1-Cs are already ready to go out to 
dealers. News of the G4 modules is expected some time next week. Those 
wishing to trade in their existing G3 800MHz modules should contact t
heir local dealer for a possible trade-in (not all dealers may offer 
this).

This is a quick and dirty port of Quake 3 for OS4. To play, you need 
the latest version of the Quake 3 data files (retail version plus all  
patches). You also need the latest MiniGL.library (included in this 
archive, copy to libs:).

Unpack Quake 3 data files to a directoy (say, dh1:games/Quake3), and 
extract the archive there. (As a reference, the quake3 binary should 
be in the same directory as the "baseq3" directory).

To launch, alter the q3 batch file (adjust the path according to your 
system) and run "q3" from shell.

The port uses the QVM jit, so it can also run all the mods (tested 
with Urban Terror).

Source code is available on OS4depot.net too. The port is unpotimized, 
so don't expect it to be blazing fast.

DISCLAIMER: This software is provided as-is, with no guarantee for 
usability. 

Also note: This port has NOTHING to do with Hyperion Entertainment, 
it's a spare time project of me. DO NOT write to Hyperion 
Entertainment regarding support.

Note: Added gpl.txt. Many thanks to Christian Rosentreter for kindly 
making me aware of that.

I. Warning

 This version doesn't implement any security features.


II. Prerequisites

 You will need at least AmigaOS 4.0 installed on your computer.


III. Installation

 Copy the lpd binary to your SYS:Utilities or some other directory.

 Launch the Internet preferences program.
 Select the "Servers" section.
 Press the "New..." button to add a new inetd server.
 Pick the "printer" service from the list.
 Click "Program" and select where you installed the lpd binary.
 Make sure "Active" and "Use socket I/O streams" are both checked.

 After you save your Internet preferences the lpd server will be
 immediately available for use. No reboot required.


IV. Using lpd

 The lpd daemon is currently hard-coded to print whatever it receives
 directly to PAR: and nothing else.

 More options could be added. Please email with your requests.

 lpd.debug is also included which can be used to trouble-shoot 
problems. It will output all sorts of useful debug to the default 
serial port.

 This is a very basic implementation of lpd and more features could be 
added. Feel free to send in your request.

  AmigaOS back from the binary dustbin.

MorphOS: GemZ 0.97.0 and Tile World 1.3.0

GemZ 0.97.0

The player has to remove all "jewels" from a field which consists of 8x8 smaller fields. In addition stones lying side by side have to be swaped so that three stones of the same colour form a horizontal or vertical line which will then vanish into thin air.

Tile World 1.3.0

Tile World is a clone of the Arcade veteran Chip's Challenge.

MorphOS: OpenTTD 0.4.8 Release Candidate 2
OpenTTD is an open source clone of the Microprose game "Transport Tycoon Deluxe". The changes in the latest version can be obtained from the changelogs of 0.4.8 RC1 (not published for MorphOS) and 0.4.7. In addition two MorphOS specific problems have been cleared:
  • game doesn't crash anymore if no TCP/IP stack is present (UDP sockets were used even if network-availability was set to false)
  • fixed filerequesters to fix crashes (writes to NULL) when going to directory root in the filerequesters
