Software-News: MPlayer-GUI 1.52, BackUp 1.80
Daniel 'Deniil' Westerberg has released updates for two of his tools. MPlayer-GUI 1.52 includes new graphics, support for sb600*-CD/DVD-devices and fixes a bug in the full screen mode of the control panel.

Changes in BackUp 1.80:
  • Fixed crash when copying 2GB+ files.
  • Added a menu item: "Target is FAT file system". Use this when backing up to a partition with FAT file system to prevent BackUp from copying existing files over and over. The reason is that FAT can only store even seconds (0,2,4,6,..) in the file timestamp so it will not match the Amiga file timestamp.
  • Also added auto-detection of FAT file system when doing an incremental backup.
  • Added a synchronize mode. When clicking Clean first you will be asked if it should automatically backup when finished. Saves you some time when synchronizing backups.
  • BackUp will automatically skip the ".recycled" dir when present in the root of a SFS/2 or JXFS partition. No need to manually put it in the skiplist anymore.
  • Fixed size calculation for big files (2-4GB). Files over 4GB will be correctly copied and calculated, except in test mode. The "N bytes extra space was needed" may be wrong with 4GB+ files.
  • Made it possible to select files over 2GB for the skiplist

New USB-adapters for keyboards, mouse and joystick announced
In Poland, obviously two new adapters are developed, which can connect an USB mouse and joystick (Youtube-Video) or keyboards (Youtube-Video) with an Amiga. The adapters emulate the original hardware, which does not require any kind of software or driver installation.

So far, there is little information about the adapters, only available in Polish (thread at about the keyboard-adapter). The final devices are supposed to be commercially sold. (cg) (Translation: dr)

New Demo: Multiplayer Coop-Shooter "Chaos Guns"
"Chaos Guns" combines the four independently playable charakters from "Hired Guns" with the bird's-eye view from "Alien Breed". Due to the feedback, the second demo version was highly reworked compared to the first preview.

According to the authors the demo now offers a real preview to the game. The first release was called a "Tech-Demo". The most important changes:
  • Prefs are improved and integrated to main executable, it offers more transparent settings and testing
  • only AHI sound is now supported!
  • new graphics, new design of puzzles (it really plays as totally new game on old, but improved map)
  • improved design of weapons and enemies
  • adjusted difficulty - now you should be able easily beat the demo in one person!
  • complete storyboard implementation
  • complete gameplay remake

Hollywood: MUI Royale 1.2
Press release: Airsoft Softwair is proud to present the immediate availability of MUI Royale 1.2. This is a major update and finally allows you to dynamically create MUI objects at runtime.

In earlier versions it wasn't possible to add new windows or gadgets to an existing GUI at runtime. MUI Royale 1.2 now adds support for dynamic modification of all GUI components which allows you to tap the full potential of MUI, e.g. it'd be possible now to write tools like a WYSIWYG GUI builder which then exports MUI Royale XML code ready to be used in MUI Royale.

Additionally, MUI Royale 1.2 adds support for further new MUI 4.x features like dynamic addition of register pages or register pages with a close gadget. Last but not least the 68000 build of MUI Royale has support for MUI 3.9 now as this is finally available for 68000 systems, too.

MUI Royale requires at least Hollywood 5.2 and is provided free of charge for all users of Hollywood. It is available for AmigaOS 3 (m68k), AmigaOS 4 (PPC), MorphOS (PPC), and AROS (i386).

The package comes with over 20 example scripts, many of which are direct ports from the MUI 3.8 SDK by Stefan Stuntz, but there are also original developments like demonstrations of how to create a video player using the combined power of Hollywood and MUI. On top of that MUI Royale comes with extensive documentation in over 300 PDF pages which are also available in the HTML, AmigaGuide, and CHM formats thanks to the Hollywood documentation system.

All this makes MUI Royale the truly royal MUI experience, carefully crafted for you Kings and Queens of MUI!
