Airsoft Softwair, Andreas Falkenhahn (ANF)

Hollywood 3: Evolution released
Press release: Airsoft Softwair are proud to annouce the immediate availability of Hollywood 3: Evolution. This is a major update which brings along many new features and general improvements over Hollywood 2.5. The most important new feature is that Hollywood can now compile native executables for Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac OS. Yes, that's right. You can now save your Hollywood projects as fully stand-alone programs for Windows and Mac OS!

This is made possible by the new HAL (Hollywood Abstraction Layer) introduced in Hollywood 3. And thanks to Hollywood's cross-compiler, you do not even need to have these operating systems running. You can cross-compile Mac OS and Windows binaries from every system that Hollywood runs on. This makes it possible to create full-blown Mac OS or Windows applications from your AmigaOS 3, AmigaOS 4, MorphOS, AROS, or WarpOS installation of Hollywood. The Mac OS and Windows applications created by Hollywood are completely stand-alone and do not need any additional libraries. They use the OS API directly, thus giving you the best speed possible without any overhead. They will work on any system that runs at least Windows 2000 or Mac OS 10.4 (Tiger).

Furthermore, the Mac OS and Windows versions use Hollywood's new ACL (Amiga Compatibility Layer). This means that they can handle many Amiga file formats like IFF ILBM, IFF ANIM, IFF 8SVX, IFF 16SV, Protracker modules and Amiga bitmap fonts. Thus, your scripts will run straight out of the box on Windows and Mac OS because Hollywood can open all these Amiga specific formats.

Besides these huge two new features Hollywood 3 has several other cool new features. Here is a non-exhaustive list of new features in Hollywood 3:
  • Hollywood can compile Mac OS X programs now!
  • Hollywood can compile Windows programs now!
  • Switch between fullscreen and window via hotkey
  • Iconify Hollywood scripts to the Workbench
  • All Hollywood scripts are commodities now (controllable via Exchange)
  • Improved sound library
  • Cool new features in the DOS library
  • New animation library: animation.datatype no longer necessary
  • Direct access to the command line arguments
  • More flexible control over Hollywood's appearance
  • General code optimization and clean-up
  • Support for new sound streaming formats
  • Support for HAM6 and HAM8 animations
  • Eight new example scripts (over 50 in total)
  • Standard library set encompasses over 400 functions now!
  • Lots of other changes, optimizations and bug fixes

Hollywood 3: Evolution is Airsoft Softwair's ultimate Multimedia experience and a must-have for every Amiga user who wants to use the full power that is in his machine. Hollywood is available on a CD-ROM and as a download version. If you order the download version, you will have to download an ISO image which you need to burn on CD-R then. If you already own Hollywood, you can buy a discounted upgrade version.

Screenshots of Hollywood 3 in action (on Mac OS X and WinXP, among others) can be found on the Airsoft Softwair Homepage.

Hollywood is the ultimate bridge between all the different AmigaOS compatible platforms and the other two modern desktop systems, Windows and Mac OS! With Hollywood, you can save programs for all those platforms. You do not have to have AmigaOS4 or AROS, you can save programs for these platforms also from your AmigaOS3 installation! You do not need to have Mac OS X, you can still compile your programs for it using your AmigaOS or MorphOS installation. Only Hollywood makes it possible. If you want to learn more about Hollywood, please visit the Hollywood product information which also contains a full feature list of Hollywood.

All this makes Hollywood The Cross-Platform Multimedia Application Layer. Join the Multimedia revolution and get your personal copy of Hollywood 3: Evolution now! (cg) (Translation: cad)

Elbox: Cocolino driver update for AmigaOS 4 users
Press release: ELBOX Computer has released today the new driver for the Cocolino PS/2 mouse interface. The new software is available free of charge for all registered users of the Cocolino interfaces.

The Cocolino archive includes:
  • Cocolino.driver ver. 1.2
  • CocolinoTest
  • FreeWheel ver. 2.2.1

Changes in Cocolino.driver ver. 1.2:
  • generating IDCMP messages for OS4 added
  • OS4 parameter added for switching from NewMouse to IDCMP format

About Cocolino:

The Cocolino PS/2 Mouse Interface is a microprocessor-based adapter for attaching PS/2 mice, trackballs, glidepoints and radio-controlled mice from the world of PC computers. Cocolino can work with all models of Amiga computers. It simply plugs into the Amiga's mouse port. The Cocolino PS/2 Mouse Interface is a full 'plug and play' device.

No software is required for standard use (mouse movements + two buttons support). The enclosed software allows using two wheels and 3rd, 4th and 5th buttons available in many PS/2 mice and trackballs.

The Cocolino interface starts working simultaneous with the computer's start so mice can be used in the early-startup-menu (unlike the mice connected through the serial port). Cocolino uses linear movement interpolation, which makes mouse movements perfectly smooth with any screen frame rates. (cg) (Translation: cg)
