Beware the rich kids Hmmm. I’ve managed to read through most of the latest issue and there is something about the way Amiga Shopper is going that I don’t like very much. Salvador has a head titled ‘Breaking Bald’ which makes him look like Walter White from the TV show Breaking Bad. The bitplanes can be turned off and on, as can the colours of the screen and the resolution. HAM mode can be turned on and off, and the size of the screen can be shaped with the mouse buttons. Finally, I thought, a magazine with serious use in mind. I read Amiga Shopper from cover to cover. Would the faster 68000 speed up the functions in Photon Paint also? I appreciate that a faster CPU will not affect the speed of the custom chips.
Can’t we just keep our heads in the sand? Of course Ron is right — the Amiga DTP, structured graphics and typesetting software are still primitive when stood alongside Quark XPress, Adobe Illustrator and Typesetter. Also, is there a PD ‘typing tutor’ program? Read the instructions well Before you start attempting any questions, be sure to read over the instructions two to three times. Software 10/10 The software is stored in ROM, and it functions flawlessly There is even an online help function so you can check up a command if you can’t reach the manual from your desk or you’ve just forgotten it.
These programs convert pretty much anything to anything else, and the files are preserved in their original aspect ratios, which you can’t do using the PD programs. The structure of Modula-2 encourages, if not enforces, a structured and thought-out approach to the whole area of program design. The program is based around the Freescape 2 system, which has been used as the graphics engine driving several of the company’?; leisure titles Now it is possible for a user to design and build their own environment with the program’s building blocks.
