Software News : The "Digital Universe" for OS4 now available worldwide.

Resized Image
The "Digital Universe 1.5" for OS4 is now available worldwide and not just to the UK and Europe, in fact any galactic citizen with appropriate credit card can now order it!

Two choices of file are available for download, an LHA file or an ISO image for creating an install CD. UK and European users still have the option of ordering the software on a CD if they wish.

Those in the UK will also be able to order by cheque for either the CD or the downloadable version.

See SYZYGY's Digital Universe webpage or The Digital Universe Ordering page for more details. Payment can be made by cheque or Paypal in UK pounds or by VISA or Mastercard in Canadian dollars.

A review of exchange rates means that the UK prices have been lowered slightly to keep in line with the price of $55 Canadian. Those that have already purchased a CD in UK? need not feel left out as they will eventually get an aditional ?1.50 discount off the 2.5 upgrade and unlike other certain coupon schemes this will be honoured when DU 2.5 is released!

Work is now progressing on version 1.6 which will be a free upgrade to registered users as will any 1.x update.

Following that plans are afoot for version 2.5 which will have all the features of the Macintosh 2.40 version and more.

"The minimum system requirements to run The?Digital?Universe are:

Amiga OS4
MUI 3.9 (included as contribution files with Amiga OS4)
600MHz G3 Amiga One or compatible system *"



Only AmigaOne or is it useable on the classic ppc hardware too?

When I wrote that there was no classic hardware cable of running OS4. There were only A1s.

However, you missed the bit of text below that

" The Digital Universe will probably run comfortably on any system capable of running Amiga OS4. Even an OS4 equipped "Classic" Amiga with older PPC accelerator should be able to run the software"


There is no reason why DU could not run on a classic with PPC. Anything that can run PPC native OS4 code will run DU OS4. You cannot use Amiga native screenmodes, the minimum is 800x600 at 16bit, so you WILL need to have a graphics card installed.

What sort of speed do the classic accellerators run at, it is so long since I had an A1299 and Blizzard ?

Obviously the performance of classic/PPC card will not match an Amiga One but it should still be a big improvement on the 68k 1.03 version of DU.

The Classics' PPC solutions run between 160 and 240 MHz*, with the Blizzards having a 603e and the Cyberstorms having a 604e.

Interesting Amiga that, the A1299 - was it a rarity ?



*Note this is the official speeds !

Yeah it was that version of the A1200 that had the 0 and 9 keys reversed, I got so used to it I sometimes forget
