Re: Video editing software bounty?

I hope that QuickVideos gets ported from Aros to OS4, its GUI is inspired by the Video Toaster video editor and it's completely original Amiga programming, not a port from another OS.

Well the "Top-Secret Multiplayer Game" was Tank Wars Deluxe, from Graham Humphrey, who also started Annihilation before passing it on to NovaCoder and Anakirob, who decided to reprogram it in C instead of Blitz Basic, but then abandoned it. So those two games have been abandoned and buried now. :(

Halloween Nightmare is still a dream project for me and it's my goal in life to finish it. Progress is extremely slow, but the characters have a lot of thought put into them, as well as the story and locations.

Super Pumpkin Bros has been abandoned due to lack of interest from the developers. :(

Change It is a fully playable game in its current state, and could be considered a finished product I suppose. I'm not sure if development continues but it has been one of the more actively developed games over the last few years, and there are plenty of skins available, though more would be welcome.

I don't really know what's happening with the others. Basically most Amiga game development has slowed over the last few years, many projects are cancelled and a lot of people have lost motivation. It's not helped by the fact that we have no Amiga development/project forums to post on.

Re: RGB to PAL/NTSC adapters @ AUD$30-33 each!

@Slayer

There's no incentive for the seller to make less money on something than it cost him to make. $33 is as low as it can go without incurring losses with each unit.

Perhaps AmigaManiac should raise the price of single cards so that they can only be bought for $33 in lots of ten or more?

Hey everyone, I've uploaded another video, this time showing the display on an LCD TV. It's great to see such a high resolution (1376 x 536 widescreen) coming from the Amiga without the need for more expensive hardware, and it's rock solid with no interlace thanks to this LCD TV.

Take a look here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kaz6fNpHYIg

Well, my silly little video finally finished uploading properly after a few tries. You'll have to excuse the way I look, it was very late at night and I don't wear makeup so try not to throw up.

Unfortunately there's just no way to show the sharpness of the video output like this, but it at least shows that there's no rolling, or dot crawl, which I find are the most annoying problems with Composite.

I'll take more pics and videos soon!

Here's the video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTLvrhlNdyc

Heya everyone! I have taken a few photos of the games room TV running Babylonian Twins through S-Video on my A500. Sorry about the size, but it's important to see the detail, and sorry about the angle I was on, the cord wasn;t long enough for me to sit right in front of the screen.

I'll post a link to a quick video we made once it finishes uploading to YouTube.

My TVs aren't very good, so hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to borrow an LCD TV and see how it looks though that!

Hey everyone, I'd just like to let you all know that I have one of these adapters and it works very nicely, the S-Video output is rock solid! I'm in the process of setting up a few test Amigas and TVs to take pics of, which I'll post as soon as I can.

Hey everyone! Just a quick update, I've added a new video of Tracker Hero showing the Guitar controller support in action! I'm pretty sure it's using Paul Willigham's Playstation-CD32 adapter. I really hope they can add USB support too.

Does anyone want to help develop Amiga games?
Just popping in
Just popping in


Hello everyone! I've been chatting with a few fellow Amiga games developers about their current projects and what still needs to be done with them before they're ready to be released. It seems there are quite a few games in production, but the people working on them could really do with some more help. So I've decided to start a thread where we can list all the current Amiga games in development, giving a brief description of each one and detailing the kind of help needed. As new games come to light I can edit this first post to add them to the list, or remove them once they're completed.

While letting everyone know about all the exciting new games coming out for Amigas, the main reason for this thread is to seek out new talent to join us and help get these games finished. We are all doing our best to get our games made, but we all need help with various things, including graphics, music, sound effects, playtesting, level design, animation, and most importantly coding!

So, if anyone out there is up to the challenge and has the skills required, please contact us and join the team, we'll fill you in on all the details to get you started. Also, if anyone knows of any more current game projects that could be added to the list, let me know and I'll add them.

With your help, the Amiga games scene will see more hits in 2009 than it has in years!

And so, on with the list:

Hi everyone!

I've finally finished putting together the website and you can check it out now at - http://amigachristmastree.pspuae.com/

I didn't have much time to whip up something that looks really good, but I hope you like it.

Merry Christmas!

It's finished!

THE AMIGA CHRISTMAS TREE - http://amigachristmastree.pspuae.com/



It's been fantastic to see so many people working hard on finishing their Amiga projects before Christmas time. In the spirit of this, I've decided to make a quick website that will have links to everyone's Christmas updates such as new Christmas skins/themes or anything you would like to release as a Christmas present to the Amiga community (games, demos, utils, updates, mods, pictures, anything). I'll be maintaining the site myself, so if you want to add a link to the page please e-mail or PM me, or even add me on (Sabre)MSN. My account is - arcadecammy (at) hotmail (.) com. I'm thinking of calling the page the "Amiga Christmas Tree" or something, and have all the links under the tree. It'll be a very basic HTML page, but at least it'll work in IBrowse, Voyager, A\Web, AMosaic, ALynx, OWB, Netsurf, or just about any other browser you point at it. If anyone would like to donate a picture for the site, perhaps a Christmas tree with a few Boing balls replacing some of the baubles, that would be fantastic! I imagine the page having either a red, white or green background too. At the moment, I only have my ISP free webspace to use for the site which is a long and not very nice looking URL, but if anyone wants to donate a domain name or re-direction address, that would be awesome.

So, what does everyone think? I could make it an annual thing, and I'll let everyone know on as many forums as I can, as well as checking out Aminet and adding links to the cool stuff that I find on there recently too. Hopefully, on Christmas morning, there'll be lots of Amiga-related presents for everyone under the tree and if we make this really big, we can make it bigger and better each year.

I guess I'll start with a couple of silly Christmas themed wallpapers I made, which you can get here - http://www.spin.net.au/~amiga/ChristmasCammy1280x1024.jpg and http://www.spin.net.au/~amiga/CammyChristmasCard1280x1024.jpg

Merry Christmas everyone!

Love from,
Cammy
