The Art Contest:

From the Presidents of CLI

by Brian Akey

This month we will be judging program generated artwork. Bring your best animations and artwork done in Scenery animator, Vista Pro, Mandanim, digitized artwork, etc. Remember first place gets a plaque. After the contest we will be looking at the differences between Scenery animator 2.0 and Vista pro 2.0. They are both unbelievable programs so come and take a look. In September there will be the annual computer fair at State Tech. We should really showoff our stuff for this fair. Ed Bilson suggested that the group could work on an animation, which I think would a perfect project for the computer fair. So if anyone has a theme for an animation, please give me a call. This animation could really help promote our group. See you at the meeting.

Notes from the Editor:

by Larry Evans

The Changes to the Memphis Amiga Group BY-LAWS have been published in this months magizine. Read over them very carefully, because this month at our meeting we will vote on the proposed changes. So if you don't show up to our meeting, you can't vote. (Note: All changes will be in a Italic font.)

With not much to say this month I thought a little humor in this column would do us all a little good. This is called:

"POINTS TO PONDER"

A computer salesman dies and meets St. Peter at the Pearly Gates. St. Peter tells the salesman that he can choose between Heaven and Hell. First he shows the man Heaven, where people in white robes play harps and float around, "Dull" says the salesman. Next St. Peter shows him Hell: Toga parties, good food and wine, and people looking as though they're having a fine time. "I'll take Hell," he says. He enters the gates of Hell and is immediately set upon by a dozen demons, who poke him with pitchforks. "Hey" the salesman demands as Satan walks past, "what happened to the party I saw going on?" "Ah," Satan replies. "You must have seen our demo." (Reader Digest, Oct 91, p64.)

Amiga Business

by the Unknown Author

We all know that the Amiga is a versatile machine with a lot of strengths. While making its way into businesses through its video and multimedia capabilities, it has been unable to penetrate the general-use office computer market dominated by IBM clones and Macs. Many attribute this to the lack of support from well-known spreadsheet, database, and word processing packages, but in my opinion, these aren't the products that make a computer truly successful in the office. Through the use of tea leaves, a Ouija board, and an old Vic20 "Biorythms" program, I have scientifically determined the key areas where the Amiga absolutely must improve in order to ever gain real acceptance in corporate America.

Screen blankers. Amiga screen blankers have a tendency to be simple, tiny, and free of charge. They are also generally multitasking-friendly; they allow running processes to continue even when blanking the screen. This needs to drastically change in order for Amiga screen blankers to compete with the state-of-the-art on other platforms. Screen blankers should be commercial programs that sell for a minimum of $30, and preferably closer to $5O. They should waste memory; take up at least a megabyte of hard drive space, and come with thirty or so configurable little screen-saver displays that leave large sections of the screen unblanked to allow those monitor phosphors to tan more quickly. Expensive updates to add more of these display settings, eat more memory and storage space, should be released every three to six months. Most importantly, these programs should totally take over the computer and allow it to do nothing else until a key is pressed or the mouse is moved. When you're at lunch or on a break, you're not working, so your computer shouldn't have to either. Another good addition to these screen-saver programs would be password protection; this way, when a report or project isn't finished on time, it can be blamed on the screen blanker ("I would have had it done but I forgot the password that gets those little fish to stop swimming around on my monitor.").

Desk Calendars. The Amiga absolutely must have "The Far Side" computer desk calendar ported over, for it to ever have a chance at success in the "Wow, another calendar program!" market. Windows comes with a calendar program, and there are literally hundreds of such programs, all of which pretty much do the exact same thing, available on most other platforms, but the Amiga has only a few dozen. The ones that exist need to be slowed down and take up more memory in order to be accepted among Mac/PC users.

Panic Buttons. This is an area that has only been touched on in the Mac/PC community, thus giving the Amiga a chance to leap ahead in this critical field. A 'panic button' is some means of quickly hiding the game you're playing behind something that bears a reasonable resemblence to real work. Take this scenario, for instance: you and a dozen or so of your co-workers are gathered around a computer playing the new "Leisure Suit Larry XVII - The Search for Dentures", when suddenly you hear the sound of your boss's voice coming down the hallway. What to do, to avoid getting yelled at? Just click on the panic button and up pops a spreadsheet with a bunch of make-believe numbers on it! When the boss walks in. everyone can be intently staring at the fake spreadsheet as if working together on something important. Pretending to make a few changes to the spreadsheet, you can mumble (just loud enough for the boss to hear), "If we change this, it will save the company a lot of money." You might even get a raise, in which case you'll be able to afford the next dozen Leisure Suit Larry games and an even better computer to play them on.

64 Good reasons why even the Commodore 64 surpasses the IBM (or any clone, such as a 486 machine).

Ultima VI, The False Prophet

by Peggy Herrington

If you're into graphics-based role-playing games, Ultima VI is definitely great. If you've never tried a CRPG, this is the place to start. As virtue personified, you (the Avatar) aided by a merry band of automated adventurers will spend days of fascination on a grand, multi-part quest to save Britannia from the wicked gargoyles. You'll travel by land and by sea, by foot, horseback, hot-air balloon and instant magical transport as you explore picturesque islands, mountains, dungeons and even a castle in search of treasure, ruins and spells. And oh, the towns! Eight incredibly detailed towns are populated by intelligent mayors, mages, merchants, musicians, healers and pirates (all in their appropriate abodes and shops) eager for cleduedad penalties for less than virtuous acts are nothing like they were.

The Amiga version was released a couple years after the IBM. It's a solid port by Mindscape with graphics in 32 VGA-ish colors with far superior music. It runs a bit pokey on un-accelerated Amigas (even IBM players find it slower than its predecessors) but remember, this is role-playing not arcade fare. I found it quite acceptable on my stock A2000, and playability is improved thanks to simplified commands and streamlined design.

Options if you're stuck: (1) Get Origin's hint book; (2) Download two files from Scorpia's library on GEnie page 805, #2153 Ultima VI Tips & Info, and #2152 Ultima 6 Pirates; (3) Post a question in *StarShip* bulletin board Category 6, Topic 32; (4) Get #15807 ULTIMA6HINTS.TXT from the *StarShip* Library. Unlike the first three, "spoiler" info in the last option reveals beaucoup details about the game. One tip: Hold down the ALT key while typing 213 on the numeric keypad. Your karma is revealed as the first two numbers; at least 75 are needed to finish the game, so steal accordingly. The next four numbers show current game time, and the alpha/numeric code thereafter is your location. After this you're shown a less-detailed but much larger view of the area you're in revealing nearby monsters, buildings and residents. Other undocumented features are in option (4) along with a game walk-through.

Ultima VI is a vast, superbly detailed challenge. Few will finish without help despite the fact that not everything must be completed to reach the end sequence, the pirate map/treasure for one. Whatever your preference, you'll enjoy a bunch of fun Sundays - not to mention late nights - if you like this genre of game. I found it delightfully addictive.

John Madden Football

by Jeff Crystal

Football fans rejoice! John Madden football is here, and it's going to Blitz you into next season! This game has everything you've ever seen in a football game and many things you haven't. Everything is realistic, including the penalties, animation/sound effects, and play options. Fumbles, interceptions, and even audibles are supported. The total array of play options and possible strategies is awesome, and armchair coaches around the world can put their money where their mouths are with this game. You can even choose the type of stadium and weather conditions, or, in Playoff mode, have the computer generate random weather and use the real type of stadium for the home team.

There are 16 teams to choose from, including an All Madden team. Control is fairly simple when using the joystick and taking over the player nearest to the ball carrier is a simple as tapping the fire button. Keyboard control, on the other hand, takes some serious coordination. Each team may be controlled by either joystick, the keyboard, or by Madden (the computer, really) himself.

Both the offense and defense choose their plays in three steps: First you choose a formation, then you choose a set (The defense chooses a set and then a formation), and then you choose your play. There are six offensive and three defensive formations, 5 sets, and a fair number of plays. (A "set" is a particular set of players - normal, fast, big or special teams for a particular kind of play.) Each combination of set and formation has a different selection of appropriate plays.

If all of this has not yet whetted your appetite, how about this: Once you've called your play, you can change it on the line of scrimmage by calling an audible. Each team has it's own unique set of offensive and defensive audibles to choose from. Also, it will take advantage of any extra memory you have installed. In my opinion, if you are at all interested in football, you will not be disappointed in John Madden Football.

Rumors and stuff

by Larry Evans

The following rumors are just that... rumors. Some say that I just make most of it up, but in fact, most of it comes from messages on GEnie. I often lift entire sentences and weave it all together; so that you get the most up-to-date, if not the most accurate of Amiga rumors. I would like to add that I will not be responsible for inaccuracies or mistakes. After all, this isn't Newsweek magazine you're reading.

Commodore has issued a warning about potential memory problems with the 68040 CPUs. Mike Sinz, Senior Technical Engineer, says the problem will be fixed (via operating system software) as soon as possible.

Dr. T's Music Software announced two new products: Boom Box (a cute, introductory music program) and SMUSit (a score translation utility for MIDI to SMUS format, primarily for multimedia purposes), and said Composer Quest (a delightful music history tour/game) for both the Amiga and CDTV will be in stores this summer.

Electronic Arts is shipping an upgrade to Deluxe Paint IV, and they're still taking input for a probable upgrade to the Deluxe Music Construction Set. They released John Madden Football about the time Origin shipped Ultima VI and New World Computing released Might and Magic III.

AmigaDOS 2.1 is not a rumor. The *StarShip* News Network has recently received several reports of Commodore personnel remarking publicly that it will be available within in the next 30 days, however, no one from Commodore will comment to that effect officially. Release 2.1 consists of five disks (Workbench V38.18, Extras, Fonts, Install and Locale (multi-language libraries, etc. for programs which support that feature), and comes with a special, NEW version of CrossDOS which offers menu-driven format/read/write operations to IBM disks on Amiga disk drives (as does '386 Bridgeboard software).

FROM THE MIDNIGHT REVIEWER

Pinball Dreams

Once again we see another European import, turning some really fine programming into a super game. Pinball Dreams claims to be the first true pinball simulation, this may very well fit that bill. The game has four different "pinball machines" to play on, they are: Graveyard, Railroad, Boom Box and Ignition. Each pinball machine has its own special characteristics to keep things interesting, (Like even letting you bump the table,) because of this Pinball Dreams really catches the true spirit of pinball. Some of the games many features are: ramps, targets, ball catches, loops, changing target with right flipper, spinners, bonuses, hold bonuses, multipliers and etc. The graphics are fast and the sounds are just the what you would expect on a real pinball machine, (down to a you-hoo in the western railroad theme game,) with each game having its own "soundtrack". The speed of the game-play is excellent even on a 68000 based machine, it also seems to run fine on a 68030 and under 2.0. Speed and looks are fine but at the heart of this game is the ball movement. The programmers of Pinball Dreams have duplicated gravity wonderfully, making the ball move just like a real pinball, (I even got my ball stuck one time). I also have yet to see that jerky movement found in most pinball games. With all the wonderful things I have been saying, you may think the game has no problems, (wrong). It doesn't support multiple ball play and it doesn't have a play-field editor. All in all, no other Pinball game has come close to it. I highly recommend you go buy this one.
