Preview video: Super Star Blast (Entwickler-X)
The latest project of Entwickler-X (e.g. Emotion, M.A.C.E., Tap Jewels, Bubble Shooter DX) obviously is a remake of the Amiga classic Transplant. On YouTube a video was published which shows some scenes from the game announcing releases for modern platforms as well as for AmigaOS-4.1. (cg) (Translation: dr)

Hollywood: hURL 1.0 released

Press release: Yes, Airsoft Softwair, the hardest working men in code business, did it again! This time we proudly present hURL - the ultimate multi-protocol data transfer plugin for Hollywood. Based on curl, hURL supports an incredibly wide range of transfer protocols, e.g. DICT, FILE, FTP, FTPS, Gopher, HTTP, HTTPS, IMAP, IMAPS, LDAP, LDAPS, POP3, POP3S, RTMP, RTSP, SCP, SFTP, SMB, SMBS, SMTP, SMTPS, Telnet and TFTP. Furthermore, hURL supports SSL certificates, HTTP POST, HTTP PUT, FTP uploading, HTTP form based upload, proxies, HTTP/2, cookies, user+password authentication (Basic, Plain, Digest, CRAM-MD5, NTLM, Negotiate and Kerberos), file transfer resume, proxy tunneling and more. It really is the ultimate data transfer engine for Hollywood, leaving nothing to be desired!

There are two ways of using hURL: There is a high-level interface that can directly hook itself into Hollywood's network library, enhancing it with hURL functionality like SSL/TLS support. This makes it possible to use Hollywood commands like DownloadFile() to download files using custom protocols that Hollywood itself doesn't support, e.g. SSL/TLS.

Another way of using hURL is the low-level interface: This interface allows you to access the curl API directly from Hollywood scripts. This is extremely powerful because it allows you to access hundreds of different curl options, making it possible to fine-tune hURL to your specific needs. Just to give you an idea of how powerful hURL is: it contains over 500 (!) commands to fulfil all your data transfer needs!

Finally, hURL comes, as usual for Hollywood plugins, with extensive documentation in various formats like PDF (over 300 pages!), HTML, AmigaGuide, and CHM that contains detailed descriptions about all functions and methods offered by the plugin.

All of this makes hURL the ultimate data transfer tool for Hollywood that contains everything you need to send and receive data via almost any transfer protocol on the planet.

hURL is now available for free download from the official Hollywood portal. Thanks to Hollywood's cross-platform plugin system versions for AmigaOS 3.x (m68k), AmigaOS 4, MorphOS, Linux (ppc, arm, x86, x64), Mac OS X (ppc, x86, x64), Windows (x86, x64) and Android (arm, arm64) are provided.

Note that on AmigaOS and compatibles, AmiSSL 4.x is required by hURL. Since this isn't available in a native MorphOS version yet, you can just use the 68k version of AmiSSL 4 on MorphOS. It has been verified to work fine with hURL. (snx)

Apecat: Hobby project requesting advisory support
Since the end of January the Norwegian developer Stian Søreng has introduced his Apecat project under the title link. The abbreviation stands for "Amiga Processor Expansion Card for Application Transfer" and is an extension which is plugged between the mainboard and 68000 processor of an Amiga 500. In this way data are supposed to be transferred from one computer directly into the memory of the Amiga.

Similarly Søreng did develop a C64 extension called C64FC which makes it possible to write C64 programs on a modern system and to test it on a real C64 using an USB connection. Exactly in this way programs are supposed to be executed on an Amiga without diskdrive or harddrive - Apecat is tested as caseless board without keyboard and mouse.

In his blog entry Søreng also described technical problems and asks experienced Amiga developers for help. (snx) (Translation: dr)
