Software News : Hollywood now also available on Windows
Posted by softwarefailure on 2010/2/7 13:42:29 (1799 reads) News by the same author
Software News

Airsoft Softwair are proud to announce the immediate availability of Hollywood for the Windows operating system. The Windows version of Hollywood is identical to the Amiga version, except that the Windows version comes with a convenient integrated development environment (IDE) that allows you to create Hollywood programs fast and easy. The Windows version of Hollywood is perfect for users who need to work with Hollywood in places where they don't have access to their Amiga system, e.g. at work or on notebooks while travelling. Scripts can be easily developed under Windows and then compiled for all platforms supported by Hollywood, i.e. AmigaOS 3, AmigaOS 4, MorphOS, WarpOS, AROS, Windows, Mac OS X PowerPC and Mac OS X Intel.


Here is a non-exhaustive list of features of the Hollywood Windows IDE:

- Ultra-fast syntax highlighting even for large projects
- Multiple projects can be opened at the same time
- Syntax of inbuilt functions is shown during typing
- Comprehensive context sensitive online help
- Browser allows convenient project management
- User-defined functions can be easily accessed through the function list
- Easy access to project data files using an integrated viewer
- IDE is highly customizable (appearance & behaviour)
- Scripts can be saved as AVI videos
- Full printer support
- Unlimited undo & redo support
- Convenient context menus and shortcuts
- Extensive (30,000+ lines) of searchable documentation
- System integration (launch Hollywood scripts directly by double-clicking the .hws!)
- Many colorful icons designed by Martin "Mason" Merz
- Native Win32 application: no additional software required
- Runs on Windows 2000 and up

Please keep in mind that these were only the features of Hollywood's Windows IDE. The IDE is of course just the front-end for Hollywood's incredible multimedia power. To learn more about Hollywood itself, please visit the Airsoft Softwair homepage. There are also plenty of screenshots of the Hollywood IDE available here

Hollywood for Windows is available on CD-ROM or as a download version. Users who already own the Amiga version of Hollywood can buy a discounted crossgrade to the Windows version of Hollywood. Please note that this crossgrade is a special offer only available for users of the very latest Hollywood version (4.5).

Hollywood is the ultimate bridge between all the different platforms because it allows you to easily save your projects for many different platforms! And the best thing is that you do not even have to have the operating system you are targetting because Hollywood can compile for all platforms from every platforms it is running on. I.e., you can cross-compile Mac OS X application bundles right from Windows, or you can cross-compile AmigaOS 4 binaries from Windows. Only Hollywood makes it possible!

All this makes Hollywood The Cross-Platform Multimedia Application Layer. Join the Multimedia revolution and get your personal copy of Hollywood now!

Nice one!

Are there any chances to see this IDE ported back to AmigaOS in the future?

Best regards,

Wasn't somebody making a Hollywood module for Codebench already. So we have an IDE already ?

Rigo is making the Codebench-plugin, but It has not been released yet as far as I know :)

 Re: Hollywood now also available on Windows
I think this is positive news that will ensure that hollywood gains some new users and hopefully a lot of development in the future.

No need to backport the IDE if we get a plugin for Codebench. Any news on the plugin Rigo??
Also Hollywood works with Cubic IDE so it's not like we're desperately missing anything.

Only minor objection is that the Amiga version could be a little cheaper as it comes without the IDE (Cubic is extra).

The Hollywood version of CodeBench was released to Hollywood users just a short while ago.

 Re: Hollywood now also available on Windows
As all of the Hollywood users are on the official mailing list, it was announced there.

I will put up something on the CodeBench website when I get a chance.

But for now, all those that need to know, know :)

I beg to differ.

More like the end of any more Amiga versions if history is anything to go by.

Distant Suns, DOpus Magellan and a long list of others that dropped Amiga support as soon as they had a Windows version

 Re: Hollywood now also available on Windows
No they left the Amiga because of the tiny userbase. Hollywood was started and evolved in a small community and a small userbase because the author is dedicated to the Amiga.

A successful windows version could ensure faster development of both versions.

That's what was said about the other applications too. Pity it NEVER works out that way.

Windows versions are the death knell for any Amiga version

I am pretty sure that Andreas will never abbandon Hollywood for Amiga OS(es), he put a lot of effort to realise what (imho) is one of the best software ever created even of Windows®
