Congratulations! :)

This is an amazing offer - I run Hollywood 4 and Designer on a SAM 667mhz myself, and it works perfectly!

Questions of a blind one :

I already have a SAM440ep. Where do i find the serial number of my Sam to order this special offer?

Is there a license issue? Can i run Hollywood in addition on a A4000/AOS4 or Pegasos2/AOS4?

That's a great offer! I've just bought Hollywood + Designer myself recently, I could have saved some money with this offer but I wouldn't have been able to run it on MorphOS as well as AOS4.1.
All SAM owners should get it, for sure at this price.

Great !!

Now go and MARKET IT AS A MULTIMEDIA-BOX !!

Less energy consuming, no Microsoft dependencies, more stable and very versatile and easy to program.

It could find a place in the kiosk world.... But we all now that...

I've gone to here to read about both products:
http://www.airsoftsoftwair.com/

Just to clarify Hollywood 4 is a scripting language? -- that can be compiled for multiple platforms. This is not like Scala or Powerpoint -- is it more like AMOS?

And Designer is like Scala? How is the user interface like -- is it more like Powerpoint (Menu driven) versus Scala that had a very unique (but awesome) button type interface?

Also are the executables compiled for PPC OS4.x or just run in 68k emulation?

Hi there - I actually wrote about Designers userinterface a while ago in another thread :

http://amigaworld.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic_id=28556&forum=32&start=0&viewmode=flat&order=0


Here is a copy and paste of one of my posts...


Hello :)

To better show of Designers excellent userinterface I have decided to upload a few screenshots of the program. I find the GUI clean and very easy to both use and understand.

I was able to master the program after just playing with it for a short period of time. It shows that the author Andreas Falkenhahn has used a large amount of time to develop an userinterface that is both functional and fun to work with!

@my_pc_is_amiga

Yes Hollywood is a scripting language, and designer is more like a power-point system. Designer generates its presentations as Hollywood code, so you could also use it as an interface designer for more complex apps.

Well congratulations!

It is great to see a smart business (and not only) decisions within this very tiny world! I think all discounts here whatsoever only do boost both users' and vendors' satisfaction.

I wish to have a Hollywood, just being waiting for any Mini release. Despite of a fact I'm gonna do programing, bloody C++ possibly, I'm gonna get Hollywood anyway. Just because it's a RAD system I call it if I may. Which is, allowing a non- hard core programmer to create Amiga apps, either for themselves or for the others.

Besides I love proprietary apps, their existence is simply dependent on their usability, thus attractiveness. Well Amiga world is beyond all this I know. But maybe in some time, someone can make money on Amiga for supporting it. For others.

Thanks! It sounds like there is a synergy between the two....you can build something in Designer and then modify its code to add additional functionality in Hollywood 4.

Thanks for the screenshots. It looks like there are some nice GUI features to easily get to different objects and pages....

Is Hollywood a proper OS4.1 release or its just a classic Amiga binary which runs on OS4.1 using emulation?

"MARKET IT AS A MULTIMEDIA-BOX !! "

There is nothing stopping the community to start a multimedia kiosk business with Hollywood & SAM.

And by choosing Amiga-like system + Hollywood, there is no risk involved, because one does not lock one's busines to any single niche platform.

"Platform: AmigaOS3, MorphOS, WarpOS, AmigaOS4, AROS i386. Additionally, Hollywood can save programs for these platforms: Windows (Windows 2000 and up), Mac OS (10.4 and up, PowerPC & Intel)"


So, one could have a cheap but more power hungry x86 HW (with AROS!) as the player HW as well as the lower power SAM.

If I had no job, I would know what I would do.

@KimmoK 

I once thought about 'offering' my services to a some local shop or company to install some sort of presentation hardware and software in their shop window for advertising whatever they wanted.
Ofcourse I would have used an A1200 or an A1 running Hollywood.

All this as a 'hobby project' for me. Maybe for a very small fee....

This would have advertised Amiga in some way.

'Look what this guy installed for my shop ! It cost almost nothing, switches on and off instantly, and needs little maintenance !' they would say to their neighbouring shops.... Before we know it, the whole town would be assimilated by Amiga/Hollywood combos
