Video tutorial: Creating a vertical scrolling demo with Scorpion Engine
Erik 'earok' Hogan has posted on YouTube a recording of a Twich stream showing how to create a vertically scrolling demo from scratch on the Amiga (and Sega Mega Drive) using the Scorpion Engine.

As the developer explains, the Amiga has no native support for column scrolling, but it does have the ability to display sprites with infinite height, which makes it possible to emulate the effect. The demo versions for the Amiga and the Sega Mega Drive look the same, but the setuo is fundamentally different. (dr)

Video tutorial: The Blitz Basic tool "Drawer Helper"
Rob 'daedalus2097' Cranley has streamed another part of his Blitz Basic tutorial on Twitch ( reported) and made it available on YouTube: this time he dedicates himself to his second contribution to the Amiga Tool Jam after Closer, the tool "Drawer Helper" which is currently under development.

The basic idea of the Commodity is to integrate a little of the functionality of Directory Opus into the Workbench. When a window is open, pressing F1 gives a small toolbar and thus the functionality to, for example, refresh the window, create/delete a folder or insert files. (dr)

Event: Developers and shops at Amiga-Meeting Nord in Neumünster (Germany)
Thorsten Mampel, president of the Amiga club Hamburg, writes: "Besides Matthias Goldisch from 'HobbyRaum - Ihr Retropartner' we are happy that Simon Neumann from Alinea Computer has announced his appearance and will also set up his store at the Amiga-Meeting Nord.

We are especially happy that Matthias Heinrichs (Matze from the A1k forum) can make it this year and will visit us at the meeting on Saturday and Sunday. His extensive list of projects/extensions for the Amiga can be admired in the forum there. They enrich many Amigas still in use today." (snx)
