Announcement   Announcement : Amiga Future 84 Preview and Excerpts Online
   posted by AndreasM on 14-Apr-2010 12:18:31 (3114 reads)
The preview and excerpts of the Amiga Future issue 84 (May/June 2010) are now online.

In this issue you'll find news about the AmigaOne X1000 and an exclusive interview with Hyperion.

Read more...


Of course there's more. Like a C workshop, a review of Bubbelsche Deluxe, YAM 2.6, AmiTwitter and much more.

On the cover CD as well as many full versions and other PD software you can find the full versions of Das Boot, Datastorm, Blue Max and many others.

A more detailed description of content and excerpts can be found at: http://www.amigafuture.de/kb.php?mode=article&k=3408

The Amiga Future is available as an English and German printed magazine directly via the editorial office and some Amiga dealers. The Amiga Future magazine can be obtained as a single issue, or by subscription, either with or without a cover CD.

We ask all interested users to order as soon as possible. This way we can estimate the number of copies required for printing.

Amiga Future seeks help

We need more translators for the magazine. Your native language should be English or German and you should be able to read and write both of them very well.

If you are interested just send an email to Andreas@amigafuture.de.

I know that it annoing to hear, but, still no color versions, still retro-black-white-pages => no subscriptions from me :( Hope some day it will be in color (like for example, 5 weeks ago done poland paper magazine - full colored).

Perhaps they could have color version in PDF for subscribers, would that be enough?

I just trying to point, that some ppls (like i am), do not want to be a "retro", and be like zx-spectrum fans, with black-color magazines. Amiga always was a multimedia/color/sound assotiation, so, it's pretty sad to step back.

But that is imho of course, and as i can see, some amigans like even black-white versions if compare with nothing :)

Everybody wants and likes colorful magazines, but according to Amiga Future is very hard to achieve, due to luck of subscriptions, so send your subscriptions now.

@phatom
I better prefer to make just donation, but really not want to have in hands black-color magazine. I fully for support AmigaFuture, and i want to help Andreas, etc, but really not in interest to read anything in death/die colors :) (no fan, no smile, just black-color stuff, like retro-shmetro-die) :)

@andreas
can you say, how many money you need for every issue to make it colorfull ? Just real number. If it's not so big piece of money, imho many of us will just donation to it, to make it happenes.

You must have completely missed the Total Amiga magazine - very good, but it too was completely B&W (except for front/back cover, and they usually put colour screenshots of things that benefit from colour there).

Yes, a few pages of colour would be nice, but most of the time I don't really notice any problem with it being B&W.

@ChrisH

Having helped with the North American Total Amiga printing and distribution I can tell you it is all about volume.

For low-volume runs (i.e. in the hundreds to low thousand-ish) the only option is a fancy colour copier. Very expensive. That is why only colour cover.

With higher volumes you get into offset printing which has a large startup cost but much lower per-copy costs.

The point at which offset printing makes sense varies based on volumes, number of pages, subscription prices, etc...

100% correct. more copies make the single copy cheaper.

@Moxee

JAM (Just Amiga Monthly) was a black and white magazine back in the 90s. It looked as though Jeff photocopied it on a 1970s machine.

ahh, never see it.

black/white are normal in the 90s.

many german Amiga mags are inside complete or a part in b/w. english mags i dont know.

color are not the first important thing what we would change. better more pages. :)

1 year full color cost us 5.000+ Euro more.
for this money we can make many, many pages more in b/w.

I think you are putting out a fine magazine as it is!
