GFX-BASE Website Updated
The GFX-BASE has been updated and turned into a kind of web portal on which you will not only find news on games, but also on scene demos. The GFX-BASE has been turned into an entertainment site for Amiga users with graphics cards, which the new logo is supposed to make clear. I would appreciate your comments and ideas for improvements in the forum.

Heise: Gateway still Deep in The Red
»The American computer manufacturer Gateway was end of last year one of the first companies in the PC business which was driven into the red by the weak Christmas sales. So far, the company apparently didn't recover: in the first quarter of 2001, Gateway entered an operative loss of 81 million US$, the total loss was 503 million US$ compared to a gain of 120 million US$ in the previous year. The sales shrunk by 15 percent to 2,03 billion US$.«

iFusion Support
After a long time of waiting the iMac emulator iFusion is available, now. With this the entire world of software a for the iMac opens to the Amiga users. To be able to use iFusion an Amiga PPC-card and a 'new world' MAC operating system is required. iFusion along with the operating system MAC OS9.1 can be delivered at a special price.

KDH Datentechnik is distributor of iFusion in Germany. To ensure smooth distribution KDH Datentechnik and Eternity are co-operating. Eternity took the task of iFusion support in Germany.

Applications and games for the iMAC will be tested by NoRiscNoFun and play!Amiga and both will determine if such are runnable under iFusion. Test results will be published and summarized in a iFusion compatibility list. iFusion, the tested MAC games and applications will be available at the online shops of Eternity and KDH Datentechnik.

Aminet: Flash-Update for PPC-Cards a Fake
The flush-update of PPC-cards (flashupdates.lha, size 940kbyte) which was uploaded on April 17th, 2001 is a fake which was not written by Ralph 'Laire' Schmidt being the author of PPC-software as he confirmed.

Ralf: "No..i haven't uploaded it. I notified the aminet admins to remove it."

Matthias Scheler, who is the co-admin of the Aminet, confirmed to that the supposed ppc-update has been removed.

Each user who downloaded and installed the flash update is advised to remove it and to control the integrity of the software by using a current anti-virus-software because it is possible that it is a virus or a Trojan.

Ralph Schmidt furthermore confirmed that he would never upload PPC-updates to the Aminet. The only sources for his Flash-Updates are:

Tools: Choowin V1.1 Available
There is a an improved version v1.1 of Choowin. The design of the menus has been reworked and sub-menus have been added to the start-menu. Other characteristics can be now configured above all the background pattern and the aligment of the text.
Download: choowin.lha - 32 kB

Choowin is a small help program starting programs and putting windows to the foreground and activating them. It is comparable with a task-manager. You simply push one of the buttons in a corner of the Workbench-window and then choose either the program or the window title in the appearing list. With the tooltypes you can define the position of Choowin and the size of the appearing window and can decide which windows are to be displayed. The programs in the start-menu are also defined with tooltypes. Choowin is freeware and requires at least AmigaOS 3.5.

Met@box Stops Producing PC-Card-Projects
As you could already assume on March 30th in 2001 the announcement of Met@box giving up "non-strategical-parts" results in consequences in the fields of PC-card-development. (We have already reported (German)).

On the website which is specially made for PC-cards by Met@box you can now officially read what this have to mean:

»In the procedure of restructuring of Met@box AG to a producer of Set-Top-Boxes the departments of Macintosh and Amiga has been closed down with effect from March 30st in 2001. All developments has been closed down.«

3ivx News
In future licence fees will be charged for using 3ivx as the following press release supposes. Private users pay 10$, commercial users pay 400$. 3ivx is a video-compression-format for MPEG4 which is used by some Amiga-programs as SoftCinema and MooVId.

Press Release: 3ivx, solving the streaming video problem
Truly multi-platform MPEG-4 video means encode anywhere, play everywhere

April 17, 2001 - Happy Machines releases its third preview version of the 3ivx codec. 3ivx takes video compression to a higher level. This is the first release which includes a free personal test encoder as well as a version for MacOS X.

"Streaming video is very important for our customers," says Marcel Bor of On The Road, an Equant Service Provider "That's why I am extremely pleased with the quality of 3ivx movies, even better than Real 8!"

This release includes a lot of enhancements resulting in improved video playback while maintaining small file sizes and low bit-rates. Technically this translates into:
- Scheduled Asynchronous Decompression
- Advanced frame queue management
- FrameCache and Flextime Frame management
- Hardware Accelerated YUV Output

The encoder and the decoder are available on the site for immediate download. There are 3 versions of the codec available, a free test codec, a $10 version for personal use and a $400 version for commercial use.

3ivx is a natural video compression system that is compliant with MPEG-4v3. The strengths lay in its open architecture, multi-platform approach (Windows, MacOS, Linux/Unix, BeOS and Amiga) and it's high compression ratio which compresses video's and moving images to one thirteenth (1:13) of the size of a DVD or MPEG-2 movie while maintaining approximately the same quality.

Happy Machines is a Belgian company that represents a creative team and a large international network of inventors, software and hardware developers, designers in various fields such as imaging, satellite communications, artificial intelligence, machinery etc., which has contacts with top-manufacturers worldwide. The company is also member of the MPEG-group and is an Inmarsat partner. It is orientated on project development and related intellectual properties.
