Software News   Software News : Hollywood now also available for Windows
   posted by softwarefailure on 7-Feb-2010 10:48:13 (8065 reads)
Airsoft Softwair are proud to announce the immediate availability of Hollywood for the Windows operating system. The Windows version of Hollywood is identical to the Amiga version, except that the Windows version comes with a convenient integrated development environment (IDE) that allows you to create Hollywood programs fast and easy. The Windows version of Hollywood is perfect for users who need to work with Hollywood in places where they don't have access to their Amiga system, e.g. at work or on notebooks while travelling. Scripts can be easily developed under Windows and then compiled for all platforms supported by Hollywood, i.e. AmigaOS 3, AmigaOS 4, MorphOS, WarpOS, AROS, Windows, Mac OS X PowerPC and Mac OS X Intel.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of features of the Hollywood Windows IDE:

- Ultra-fast syntax highlighting even for large projects
- Multiple projects can be opened at the same time
- Syntax of inbuilt functions is shown during typing
- Comprehensive context sensitive online help
- Browser allows convenient project management
- User-defined functions can be easily accessed through the function list
- Easy access to project data files using an integrated viewer
- IDE is highly customizable (appearance & behaviour)
- Scripts can be saved as AVI videos
- Full printer support
- Unlimited undo & redo support
- Convenient context menus and shortcuts
- Extensive (30,000+ lines) of searchable documentation
- System integration (launch Hollywood scripts directly by double-clicking the .hws!)
- Many colorful icons designed by Martin "Mason" Merz
- Native Win32 application: no additional software required
- Runs on Windows 2000 and up

Please keep in mind that these were only the features of Hollywood's Windows IDE. The IDE is of course just the front-end for Hollywood's incredible multimedia power. To learn more about Hollywood itself, please visit the Airsoft Softwair homepage. There are also plenty of screenshots of the Hollywood IDE available here

Hollywood for Windows is available on CD-ROM or as a download version. Users who already own the Amiga version of Hollywood can buy a discounted crossgrade to the Windows version of Hollywood. Please note that this crossgrade is a special offer only available for users of the very latest Hollywood version (4.5).

Hollywood is the ultimate bridge between all the different platforms because it allows you to easily save your projects for many different platforms! And the best thing is that you do not even have to have the operating system you are targetting because Hollywood can compile for all platforms from every platforms it is running on. I.e., you can cross-compile Mac OS X application bundles right from Windows, or you can cross-compile AmigaOS 4 binaries from Windows. Only Hollywood makes it possible!

All this makes Hollywood The Cross-Platform Multimedia Application Layer. Join the Multimedia revolution and get your personal copy of Hollywood now!

@ gerograph

I spotted the same. Last thing I did was with some sprites and the sprites moved much smoother on the Win maschine (some core Duo) than on my G4/1500. On MorphOS the program had a tendency to produce some flicker, layers3D increased flickering even more. On Win there was no flickering.

@ Softwairfailure

btw.: Is there a plan for a real time scheduler? As it seems to me SetInterval() waits n ms *after* execution of each repetition of the main loop. But I would * L O V E * a handler that warrants start of an iterated ecxecution each n ms (no matter how lone prpcessing ofthe inner loop actually takes) . That may lead to some probs when the cpu time isn't sufficient to finish the inner loop during the scheduled time (the programmer would need to take care to implement some methods to cope with these issues then), but on systems delivering the required cpu speed this would warrant RT capabilities (I used hollywood in a scientific setup recently and I needed a precisely warranted framerate).

Raffaele, you got the point.

I must say this is sad news too.
There is after all no other to expect, but I will for sure not upgrade my version.

I was kind of disapointed that after my purcase (AROS version) I was planing to do some stuff that required a fix to mplega.lib, that fix never came out. I guess it's fixed in latest version, but why should I pay for something that was a bug from before.

And do not forget the main reason it could be interesting for a non Amiga developer too.

the software will be output ready for "run on Amiga" by Hollywood capabilities...AND...

...AND...at no exceeding cost and no exceeding time.


No need to recompile and add includes... No need to know how it works Amiga and learn how to program it...

Any PC developer using Hollywood could create universal binaries.

Hollywood it is truly "piece of cake" of the future.

If Hollywood wll grow and conquire any platform it will became sorta like "Babel Fish" of the universal programming!

@ Raffaele

While Hollywod is really a nice piece of software it has its limitations, too. And even while you can very easily produce multiplatform binaries you also need to keep some thing in mind/have limitations/follow rules for going multiplatform. I.e you must avoid to use special "infrastructure" of your host system. Often this not a big deal (e. g. adjusting pathes for depending files), but it gets tricky when you use Amiga/MorphOS DOS commands, or e.g. use a external video player for output and such. Not unbearable, but the write "once complie for everything" works only if you don't use resources not available on all systems. But for sure it is one of the easiest cross platform development kits and I like it very much.

@ zylesea

If Hollywood will stay perpetually at this state of the art I agree with your reasons.

But I think Hollywood will evolve in the future.

Also if Andreas will enhance Hollywood by making it modular, then any compiling module for any Operating System could be upgraded and debugged separately, and also any compling module could implement its own facilities for adapting better any compiled software in order to match the best it could the OS the software was created to running on.

(I hope these concepts of mine were clear enough, sorry for my english)

But mine are just speculations and random mumbling about it.

It is just a matter on how much it will evolve Hollywood, and depending from the ideas of Andreas Falkenhahn about his creature.

@ALL

Are there somebody that tested the windos version? and how work in this Amiga rival system?

And why this windos version go kill the Amiga version? I think that it is one help to developers because sometimes we need PC windos programs that in Amiga hasn't and this way is very fast and easy development tools and program or games for Amiga.
