Aracade game: Green Beret released (update)
Green Beret is a conversion of Konami's arcade classic of the same name to the Amiga, written using the Scorpion Engine.

Basically, the game is not meant to be a 1:1 port. The player is much more "agile", as he can stab from ladders, for exampl). It also brings some advantages, such as permanently dropped items and more colors (due to the use of the Amiga Copper chip, which adds additional screen colors). Also, there is newly arranged music by DJ Metune instead of the simple military march (more tracks will be added through ongoing updates).

The game runs on any Amiga with 512KB Chip RAM and 512KB Fast RAM.

Update: (06.02.2022, 07:02, dr)

As the developer reports on its Twitter channel, it has updated the game several times since its release: for example, an initial update that allowed the player to jump higher has been withdrawn. Many players had complained that this higher jump ruined the game, as it defeated the purpose of ladders: you could simply jump to reach another floor. The developer has now adjusted the jump so that the player can still jump from truck to truck or over land mines in the first level, but just not reach a higher floor with it.
In the update released today, a new music track was added, which will be played in stages 2 and 4. (dr)

Video: How Data is Encoded and Stored on Floppy Disks
Robert Smith, known for his DrawBridge project for reading Amiga floppies using a standard PC floppy drive, has now published the first part of a two-part series on floppies, following his tutorial on porting a Christmas game from HTML5 to AMOS. In it, he takes a look at how data is stored on a floppy disk, both physically and computer-wise. The second part will be about different copy protection methods. (dr)

Developer blog: Status update on RGBtoHDMI board
Developer Andrew Hutchings reports on his website LinuxJedi about the latest progress and developments of projects he is involved in.

In his latest entry Amiga RGBtoHDMI Boards Update – January 2022 he summarizes the state of development regarding his version of the RGBtoHDMI adapter, which is based on the RGBtoHDMI project and is a further development of the Amiga VideoSlot RGBtoHDMI adapter for the Amiga2000 by 'Bloodmosher': The goal of the RGBtoHDMI project is to feed raw digital RGB data into a Raspberry Pi Zero, which then outputs it via HDMI to produce a pixel-perfect display of the image with low latency.

Among other things, he reports that he has developed an RGBtoHDMI tester so that homemade RGBtoHDMI adapters do not have to be tried out on a real Amiga and possibly damage it (can also be purchased). Furthermore he describes the changes he has made in the meantime to the respective versions for Amiga 500, Amiga 1000 and Amiga 2000. Also here he shows possibilities where these can be purchased. The possession of a Raspberry Pi Zero is assumed in each case. (dr)

AmiTube 0.8: YouTube client for 68k-Amigas
Marcus 'ALB42' Sackrow's AmiTube enables watching YouTube videos on an 68k Amiga. To do so, they are converted to Commodore's CDXL format and downloaded (video).

Today version 0.8 has been released which provides an improved download speed and a lot of bug fixes. Besides, now there is an AmigaGuide help. Detailed changes:
  • Faster download speed
  • bugfix download speed display
  • bugfix invalid moviedir
  • bugfix load icon when a download is running
  • bugfix start a download when one is already running
  • bugfix clipboard device
  • sort results in list by name, duration or size
  • choice to ask for a path everytime a conversation job is started, if canceled the default moviedir is used
  • Italian and Polish translation
  • alternative more colorful icons for AmiTube and folder
  • AmigaGuide Help
The latest version always is available on the AmiTube website or via update check in the application.

Please not that conversion is executed on the developer's personal server, thus he asks to restrict oneself to few and short videos. Furthermore the program must not be shared but always be downloaded from the author's website at the title link. (dr)

Lionheart Remake: Version 1.20 of Java port of Lionheart released
After Byron 3D Games Studio started with the development of 1.2.0 of the Java version of the Amiga game Lionheart in November ( reported), this version has been released today.

Both the settings program and the game itself are localized in German, French, Spanish and English:

When restarting via the *.bat file, the settings program seems to have remembered the last language set, but the output is still in English. Only by switching back and forth does the setting also take effect. Version 1.2.0 contains a new underworld theme, beginner stages and many fixes:

A teaser video is available on the game's homepage.

Update: (30.01.2022, 06:39, dr)

As the developer Pierre-Alexandre informs us, the bug in the settings program has been fixed in the meantime. (dr)
