Yeah, these new screenshots are great - it really looks nice, clean and modern. I'm quite interested to know how they got Indiana Jones running though? I thought games like that are chipset dependant?

Anyway, me want! Me want!! ME WANT!!!

EDIT You can get a reasonable translation of the page using Altavista.com. Not perfect but you can just about make it out

SCUMM VM
Basically allows you to run old Lucasarts games in Workbench (or Linux or Windows etc)

Would be quite cool with an English (or Danish:) translation.
I do understand most of it but it took me a loooong time to read.

Wow didn't know about SCUMM VM.. untill now

I love the Monkey Island games. Does the sound work as well, eg retargetable AHI so that it would work with OS4?

Jamie_S: Did not try the Scumm VM Port myselves, but as it is using the SDL for OS 4 which has AHI Support implemented I guess it should work fine.
There is a whole bunch of SDL-stuff ported to OS 4 in the meanwhile.

Kay:

Your german sounds decent enough. Some small "bugs":

- "Deutsch", not "Deutch"
- "allerdings noch nicht", not "aller nicht noch"

Thanks, Steffen. I somehow always manage to spell "Deutsch" incorrectly.

In short words:

The article describes the first boot of AOS4.0 on the AOne of AMIGA-Magazin, somtimes after the Benelux-show in a very positive way. No really news, but a good overview of the upcoming features.

The responseness of the system is very good, alltough graphics.library and Picasso96 are not native yet;

windows-output is allready in smart-refresh-mode an pretty fast;

there is a new icon-library from Stephan Rupprecht, which increases the speed of drawing icons;

workbench.library is native, too;

there is a short describtion of the new "Mount-Rainer"-support (using CD-RWs like Floppy-Disks via Workbench), which worked allready on a A4000PPC (on the AOne the CD-rom-support wasnt finished);

at the end of the article is a test of a few Amiga-programms on AOS4.0 (which performed good): YAM 2.4p1, IBrowse 2.3, AWeb 3.4 APL, Directory Opus 4 and DiskMaster 2 (Diskmaster 2 is allready PPC-native);

Also PPC-native and testet: AudioEvolution, XaoS (fractal-program);

AmiPDF will be part of AOS4.0 and PPC-native, too;

GhostScript will be part of AOS4.0, too; So you will be able to create PDF-files within AOS4.0;


Hope this helps (and sorry for my English... )

Regards
Anton

why is the heretic 2 shots in low detail ?

seems the user who grabbed it havent updated his heretic 2 install with the new one on the hyperion site :)

can anyone confirm that hyperion has patched heretic 2 allready for a1/os4 ? and so is it working with the update also? and is it faster? than its on 604/266mhz ?..

quake2 i know of and that runs fine but heretic2 that was news to me...

Actually, that user was me

The shot looks a bit strange because there was a bug still in the lightmapping code; You'll notice some sort of rainbow pattern over the lightmaps on the ceiling.

edit: Did anyone look closely at the icon text in that Heretic II shot?

For those who are interested in reading the translation of the website, go to http://babelfish.altavista.com/ , copy and then paste the magazine url www.amiga-magazin.de/magazin/a01-04/amigaOS4/index.html into the "Translate a Web page" field, select "German To English", or whatever language translation you want, and click on "Translate". Happy reading!

Since it is a straight translation, the results aren't perfect. For example, certain words that we Amigans know shouldn't be changed are translated anyways. A couple of examples are that everytime they talk about a "boat", they mean "boot", and everytime they talk about a "submarine", they mean "UBoot"!

Now that I finally had a good view of the Grim Reaper showing the details of the lawbreakersg crash, I had a bit of a chuckle at the data address listed: 0xdeadbeef !!!!
