From: xx004@cleveland.Freenet.Edu (Atari SIG) Subject: Z*Magazine: 2-May-89 #155 Date: Sat Sep 25 16:05:11 1993 ================================================================================ | ROVAC ZMAGAZINE | | Issue #155 | | May 2, 1989 | |Copyright 1989, RII| ================================================================================ |This week in ZMagazine| World of Atari Report John Nagy CompuServe 8-bit Uploads DeTerm v1.59 Robert Anisko April 8-bit Uploads from GEnie Z*Net Newswire 8-bit Edition Harold Brewer ================================================================================ |WORLD OF ATARI REPORT| ================================================================================ |by John Nagy| Reprinted from ST-ZMagazine #18 Disneyland is known world wide as a fantasy come to life. The WORLD OF ATARI show, held in the Disneyland Hotel (Anaheim California) on April 22 and 23 was just that to the nearly ten thousand attendees. On a sales floor of 14,000 square feet, 160 booths of developers and vendors moved $512,000.00 of Atari hardware and software to eager Atarians (9,232 by the official statement this week). ST WORLD magazine owner and organizer of the WORLD OF ATARI Shows says that Atari, vendors, and shoppers were ecstatic, and that the success of the tour of shows is now assured. Rich will go to the Detroit area next with a WORLD show June 24 and 25 that will actually be larger than the Disneyland show. From there, the WORLD TOUR will go to Seattle in August, San Jose in the fall, and perhaps back to Disneyland just before Christmas. The attitude brought to the show by the developers was probably the single most important contributor to the success of the show. Many vendors planned to introduce new hardware and software at this show, and the list is amazing (I'll review them in a moment)! The World of Atari show was not without flaws, of course. As a pilot effort for what will hopefully become a continuous tour, it succeeded in drawing the right people in the right quantity. It was not a glitzy "COMDEX of ATARI" that some may have expected from the promotions. The booths were small, and while a number of vendors had classy, professionally prepared backdrops (Michtron, Migraph, Antic/Start among them), there were as many casual and home-made displays. Even Atari had only a few tables, in a back corner, shared with both GEnie (with Sandy Wilson Sysoping from the floor) and ISD (the Calamus folks). I found there to be more retailers than I had expected, but the crowds loved it. The atmosphere was very similar to the best of the "normal" Atarifests, but attendance and sales showed the difference there. Certainly the biggest flaw -a doosey- was not the doing of the World Of Atari. The "concert" scheduled for Saturday night, featuring Mike Pender (Moody Blues), Mic Fleetwood (Fleetwood Mac), and Jimmy Hotz, was, well, a flop. And the actual sale/show itself was INCREDIBLY hard to find on the sprawling Disneyland Hotel grounds. I walked through buildings and looked at "you are here" signs for 20 minutes, asking and being asked for directions all the way. More than one visitor expressed disgust with the situation, and one said "If I can't even find it, it means this is just another Trameil bust!". But first, the new products and vendors! (NO, this in NOT a comprehensive list, but should cover the highlights) Atari Corp showed their desktop publishing system, DESKSET II, although did not have a firm release date. Also showing was the remarkable hybrid word-processor/spreadsheet/database/- publisher package "Wordflair", which will sell at $149 retail when released shortly. The booth also featured the STACY laptop ST for part of Sunday. It was shown at the ill-fated concert, but when Sam Trameil tried to demonstrate it, nothing happened. Reports are split on whether the batteries died or Sam didn't know how to get it going. Although the PORTFOLIO was not there at all, ST*ZMAG is including pictures of both the STACY and PORTFOLIO with this issue. They are in DEGAS compressed .PC1 format, made with the VIDI-ST real time frame grabber, described later in this article. We will also make several sets of other pictures from the show available on GEnie and CompuServe. Analog and Antic were both there, and word is that the START folks signed up 1,700 subscriptions at the show! START also signed me up to do some reviews for them. ARTISTECH premiered DA VINCI, billed as the "ultimate graphic tool" for art, animation, and printing. It looked quite powerful, certainly rivaling the CYBERPAINT package. The developers claim that DA VINCI is more versatile, powerful, and yet easier to use. $99.95, to be available July 31st. (916) 488-6844. ARTWARE had a great selection of GEM file clip-art for the ST and IBM. Borders, art, style sheets, labels, and much more are available in a very pleasing modern look. (818) 443-0747. Astra Systems showed their complete line of hard drives. They also offered the "last" of the dual drive 2001 systems for the 8-bit Atari for an incredible $100!!! If I didn't already have one of these, I'd have broken my arm reaching for the VISA. (714) 549-2141. AVANT-GARDE gave us the first look at their new PC DITTO II, a hardware addition to be installed INSIDE your ST or MEGA machine. For $299 you can have very complete IBM XT compatibility and triple the speed. No, you won't be using this on the Stacy--yet anyway. Registered owners of the software PC-DITTO can get $150 off. Release is still 6-8 weeks away. (904) 221-2904. BECKEMEYER DEVELOPMENT introduced their new TURBO POS (POINT OF SALE) multiuser software and hardware. Previously only available as custom packages engineered for individual clients, Beckemeyer has taken the best of what they have developed and put in in an off-the-shelf package that users can adjust themselves. This looked like a really complete package. A free demo is available. (415) 452-1129. Best Electronics had their usual unusual assortment of unfindable items and Atari accessories. If it doesn't exist, get it from BEST--most dealers do. 2021 The Alameda Suite 290 San Jose, CA 95126. CODEHEAD, the G+PLUS and MULTIDESK folks, introduced MIDIMAX, a professional real-time music performance aid. It can operate as a program or accessory, redirect any MIDI instructions, remap and make macros, create modal harmonies from single keys, and lots more that I don't even begin to follow. You can for $49.95. HOTWIRE, a desktop alternative for speedy access to almost anything was also drawing a lot of attention, new at $39.95. (213) 386-5735. COMPUTER GAMES PLUS has a national reputation as a great source for import games and software. Owner Art Turko wowed the show with his VIDEO IMAGE DIGITAL INTERFACE, VIDI-ST, imported on an exclusive marketing agreement from Scotland. This is BRAND NEW and HOT folks! I used it to make the pictures accompanying this ST*ZMAG, and it is FUN! It can sample video in REAL TIME, collecting up to 3 frames a second from any composite source. No need for freeze-frame and VCR's! A 1040 can store 25 frames from which to choose, while a MEGA 4 can go up to 124! You can select frames from a 16 picture display, cut and paste, animate, recolor, and lots more. The software with VIDI-ST is a lot like CYBERPAINT, but for real video. I snapped one up, and START will have my review in a coming issue. Meantime, all I can say for sure is "GET ONE". This unit beats all other video samplers I have seen under $1,200.00. It is $199.95 only from Computer Games Plus. Art should sell a million. (714) 639-8189. FAST TECHNOLOGIES showed two models of a "TURBO 16" accelerator board for the ST. At $399 and $499, they allow 16mhz operation of the ST, double that of normal. They include a 32K RAM cache that allows use with slower RAM chips. The more more expensive unit will work on all machines including the STACY, and will work with PC-DITTO and SPECTRE. And I don't have their number! The Federated Group, Atari's lame-duck retail chain, brought a boatload of hardware, and featured live MIDI-assisted music at various times throughout the show. Federated is expected to continue to sell Atari products even after whatever happens or whoever buys it. Expect a serious answer to the Federated question by June 30. GADGETS BY SMALL had Dave and Sandy Small hopping to show the throngs of admirers their new GCR. This still developing device will replace the popular SPECTRE 128 MACINTOSH emulator for those who wish a "plug and play" MAC in their ST. The GCR does what the Spectre does, PLUS allows real time access to MAC disks with no translation needed. Dave expects a summer release date with any luck at all. The FCC is type-approving it now, so GADGETS is using the interim to GAMMA-TEST and make whatever improvements their testers can come up with. It appears that adjustments will be on board that will allow users to "touch up" problem disk drives to be reliable under the demands of MAC emulation. It will be $299.95, with a healthy rebate for those who upgrade from Spectres. Dave's newsletters are entertaining enough to be worth the cost alone. (303)791-6098. GRIBNIF offered free updates to their terrific NEODESK (V 2.03), but I forgot my disk! Oh well, V 2 owners can get it via mail for $3, V 1 can update for $17 (I THINK!), or just buy it for $49.95. A super desktop alternative, NEODESK is what GEM should have been! (413) 584-7887. HAPPY COMPUTERS showed their DISCOVERY CARTRIDGE, a copy making and MAC translating device. Also, they announced the Q-VERTER, a more limited version of the same technology especially tailored for MAC disk conversion only ($179). The "last" of the 1050 8-bit HAPPY ENHANCEMENT boards were also for sale. (408) 779-3830. ICD INC. brought both 8-bit and ST items for sale. SPARTADOS X is reported to be still selling as well as ever and may be an all time best seller. The ICD hard drives and kits are well known for quality and price. (815) 968-2228. IMAGEN introduced ULTRASCRIPT for DOT MATRIX owners at the World of Atari show. I was AMAZED at the quality. It requires at least 2 Meg of RAM, however. Both 9 and 24 pin printers (Epson compatible) are supported, and the output is virtually indistinguishable from that of a laser printer after Xeroxing the output. It was on special price at the show for under $200 but sells for $229 normally. (408) 986-9400. INFINITE STORAGE SYSTEMS offered Bernoulli (removable cart) hard drives as well a SYQUEST unit similar to ATARI's announced MEGAFILE 44. These seem to be very professional units, although they have an intermediate box along the cable, adding some clutter to a desk. Prices are $1200 for a 21 Meg Bernoulli, $1350 for a 44 Meg removable. (801) 773-8447. JRI, John Russell Innovations, introduced two new innovations at the WORLD DISNEYLAND show: the JATO accelerator board at the remarkable price of $99.95 and the ST4096C color enhancement system for $49.95. The JATO will double the processing speed of most computations inside the ST or MEGA machines. Some machines with RAM chips rated slower than 120 NS may not tolerate the speed, but these should be a minority. A new 68000 chip in included, along with a hardware switch to cut back to normal speed when needed (like in games!). The JATO is a solder installation, as the CPU must be removed and a socket installed. The ST4096C installs much more readily and gives 64 colors at one time, and ups the palette of the ST from 512 to 4,096 colors. It requires a shifter chip from Atari, and I have no idea of the cost of it. These are the folks that gave us GENLOCK, which was demonstrated both on the floor and at the MIDI presentation. It is everything a chroma-key system should be, plus allows interfacing with professional video gear. Pricey at $650, it installs only in the MEGA machines of discriminating video movers and shakers. (415) 458-9577. MAGNETIC IMAGES introduced LOST DUTCHMAN'S MINE, a sure winner in the game marketplace. These are the old FONT FACTORY folks, and they still offer the DTP line of products too. (602) 265-7849. MEGAMAX had their LASER C and new Compilers on display. (214) 699-7400. MICHTRON/MICRODEAL had an outstanding display, and featured the first copies of ST TUNE-UP available anywhere. Delayed due to torturous testing, it is a top notch hard drive maintenance tool. TALESPIN was also at last available, a graphic adventure game creator. George Miller told me he had scored a major coup the day of the show--he had secured exclusive rights to IMAGEN's Ultrascript. No other DTP package but FLEET STREET will be able to be sold bundled with the remarkable Postscript emulator. FLEET STREET v3 should also do the fancy things that seem to be selling the higher price DTP systems, and should be available this Fall. (313) 334-5700. MIGRAPH, one of my favorite companies, products, and people, showed their soon to be released hand scanner and new TOUCH UP software. Touch UP is being revised into a simpler, cheaper package as well as a new more advanced system. The scanner will be available with TOUCH UP LITE for $499. Migraph is offering an introductory price of $429 on the bundle through July 31. Registered Touch-Up owners can purchase the hand scanner direct from Migraph for only $299. (800) 223-3729. REEVE SOFTWARE had his DIAMOND desktop system for the 8-bit Atari, plus his well known NEWS STATION and other software on display. DIAMOND WRITE is almost ready, and several applications should be coming soon for this very competent "GEM for the 8 Bit" cart. SEYMOR/RADIX was taking orders for their brand new DVT device, a cart which plugs into a VCR to make hard drive backups. It stores at the rate of a megabyte a minute and retails for $249.95. They were supposed to have them available for sale, but the story is that the airline lost them in transit! (214) 823-5797. SIERRA ONLINE surprised us after not only pulling out of the Atari market, but responding in print to letters asking for support with comments to the effect that we should "Get a real machine". Here there were at the World of Atari showing a full line of new entertainment software. SpaceQuest 3 looks like must have graphic adventure. It opens with a two minute cartoon with wonderful stereo music. SUPRA sold lots of their 2400 baud modems and hard drive systems. TIMEWORKS didn't show up to use their booth right up front! Odd, considering that ATARI offers the Timeworks DTP package in their DTP laser/MEGA bundle! TOP TEN SOFTWARE introduced a new race game, LOMBARD/RAC RALLY. This is one super simulation! The driver steers, shifts, etc on your command, and the realism is outstanding. Look for a review of this soon! WUZTEK had their outstanding line of alternative monitors for the ST. Although priced to match their high performance, the all-resolution monitors in either color or monochrome represent a valuable technology. Color $699.95, mono $399.95. You'll only need one for everything. (714) 544-7888. YIKES! And, yes, there was more that I didn't get to see! Crowds were so thick at some points that people simply waited outside for a break. I am glad the sales floor at the Detroit show will be at least 25% larger! The size of the Disneyland show was actually reduced to make room for the MIDI CONCERT, co-sponsored by START magazine and KEYBOARD magazine in cooperation with ATARI and KWAI musical instruments. Tickets were given away at some booths, and were also sold for $5 each all day Saturday. Billed as "BEYOND THE THRESHOLD, a musical tour of today's new technology, hosted by Mike Pender", it promised music from a variety of artists including Mic Fleetwood, Jake Flader of MAZE, Joseph Zawinul of WEATHER REPORT, and more. What the way-under capacity crowd in fact got was a pep talk from Sam Tramiel who showed the STACY, then a long winded series of demos and explanations of how and why musicians are excited about ATARI. Don't get me wrong, this was all very encouraging and even interesting, but it was NOT A CONCERT. Zawinul never showed up, Mic and Mike each played very little, and all in all the two hour (scheduled for three) even held less than 20% music. High points were a presentation of a GOLD RECORD, Atari's first, for a million dollars sales of the "COLORS" motion picture soundtrack. The music was produced on ST equipment. A clip of the film was shown, and the record was given to ATARI's FRANK FOSTER, who arranged the entire show. One wonders how Frank is doing at ATARI this week after what almost all attendees declare an embarrassing show. As a free seminar, it would have been outstanding. As a concert, especially for those who paid money for it or skipped some other southern California evening activity, it was nothing short of a failure. Rich Tsukiji's plans for future WORLD OF ATARI SHOWS do NOT include a repeat of the concert! Seminars throughout the days of the show included a LAW ENFORCEMENT session, a special talk by SIG HARTMANN, MIKE DENDO, and JOE MENDOLIA, as well as a seminar on TOS 1.4. Reports on those events will be in future ST*ZMAGAZINE and Z*NET newsletter supplements. ST*ZMAG will attend as many ATARI events and shows as possible, and will keep you abreast of ATARI NEWS as it happens, live online, and with complete and original reviews. Thanks for making ST*ZMAGAZINE your ATARI news choice! ================================================================================ |COMPUSERVE 8-BIT UPLOADS| ================================================================================ Courtesy of CompuServe's Atari8 |April 24 to May 1| LIB 0 (General): [72750,2237] Scott Armitage VBARR.COM/binary 30-Apr-89 1408 VBARR.DOC/binary 27-Apr-89 3072 A MEMORY RESIDENT USELESS DIVERSION FOR USERS OF SPARTADOS.

Utilizing "GEM-like" menus, everyone from the beginner to the advanced user can run this program with ease, controlling a plethora of flexible features. DE-TERM is set up in a GEM-like fashion. The top of the screen holds different options which can be chosen to reveal numerous other options in a window below. Moving through the menus is easy--navigation through the menus is made with the arrow keys, and you choose an option either by hitting RETURN on your choice, or hitting the first letter of your choice. That's all there is to it! Two console keys are also used at certain times. You'd hit SELECT to return to the menus from Term mode. And you would hit START to begin a file transfer. DE-TERM supports a wide variety of features, such as copying files, viewing and printing files, and SpartaDOS command line access (when used with SpartaDOS 3.2). It also contains the largest choice of file transfer protocols I've seen in an 8-bit program. The standard Xmodem and Xmodem CRC are supported, as well as Ymodem (Xmodem 1K) and Ymodem Batch. And yes, we're talking both downloads AND uploads (so you and a friend could send each other a whole disk of files and not take a second look). Of course, the standard options such as Dialing , Translation (ASCII/ATASCII), and others are supported as well. DE-TERM also features two options that are very unique. The first option lets you turn off most off the screen during file transfers for a slightly increased transmission (and at 9600 baud, for those lucky enough to be going that fast, this is a must since the screen can't display data that fast). The second option is a definite rarity: a user, while transferring files, can actually play a simple game of "Breakout" while waiting for the transfer to end. And when the transfer is finished, the original screen will return. This makes file transfers less tedious, and sometimes even fun! There are versions of DE-TERM Version 1.59 for all the major modem types: SX212, XM301/1030, Hayes-compatibles (850), and MPP modems. Each of these has a handler built-in, so it is not necessary to append one. All features are supported in each version. And yes, it is SHAREWARE!!! So you can make a copy of it, and share it with your friends. If you like it, you could always send a donation to the author, considering the time it took to develop such a program. This will also give him motivation to continue updating DE-TERM, and developing new programs. DE-TERM Version 1.59 has become my favorite telecommunications program. I have a number of other programs, but DE-TERM surpasses them all. DE-TERM takes over where Express! left off. (Editor's note: Joystick handlers are available for DeTerm's "menu" mode, and another file transfer protocol--CIS's "Quick-B"--is available.) ================================================================================ |APRIL 8-BIT UPLOADS FROM GENIE| ================================================================================ Courtesy of GEnie's 8-bit RT # File Name Address YYMMDD Bytes Access Lib Description 4321 JESSICA.GIF G.P.BURDELL 890430 7560 24 7 Desc: GIF picture for use with ATVIEW8 4320 ATVIEW8.ARC L.DAVIS13 890430 42840 22 4 Desc: GIF DECODER VIEWER VERSION 2.0 4318 JANCOMMENT.TXT UNICORNPUB 890428 10080 19 12 Desc: News from January issue of AIM 4317 ALTERNATEOS.TXT UNICORNPUB 890428 6300 12 12 Desc: hardware mod from Jan.issue of AIM 4316 XF551.TXT UNICORNPUB 890428 7560 20 12 Desc: Inside the XF551 -- AIM's Jan Issue 4315 NEWS_ROOM.TXT UNICORNPUB 890428 6300 10 12 Desc: Review from Jan. issue of AIM 4314 SPARTA.TXT UNICORNPUB 890428 22680 16 12 Desc: Review of X cart in Jan.

Priority of a sale will be given to those Atarians who are (in DataQue's eyes) most able to program the 8-16. While picking up a copy of AIM and Current Notes at my local Atari dealer, my attention was drawn to the stock of XF-551 drives which now contain DOS-XE. The decal proclaiming the inclusion of DOS-XE stated that the full 320K storage capability of the drive can now be accessed. 320K? I hope that this typographical error will not go unchanged. (The XF-551 can access 360K on a double-sided disk.) | Rovac Industries, Incorporated | CompuServe: 71777,2140 GEnie: ZMAGAZINE Source: BDG793 ZMagazine Headquarters BBSes: Centurian BBS--(314)621-5046 (618)451-0165 Chaos BBS--(517)371-1106 Shadow Haven--(916)962-2566 Stairway to Heaven--(216)784-0574 The Pub--(716)826-5733 ================================================================================ | Rovac Industries, Incorporated | | P.O.
