Software News   Software News : Diskmag "HUGI" issue 36, for AmigaOS4 is OUT !
   posted by kas1e on 24-Jul-2010 16:45:30 (3333 reads)
The well-known and 14 years excisting diskmag HUGI is out for AmigaOS4 !!

For now we released the most recent issue of Hugi: #36, which was initially released at the BreakPoint 2010 party in April for windows, and now, for the 25 years amiga celebration we released an AmigaOS4 version !

The diskmag is based on the wellknown engine called Panorama, done by Crhis Dragan (inititally for PC users), and later, with help of Ransom from IRIS was updated by SDL part , which makes it possible to port it to AmigaOS4 (and not only) as aswell.


This issue can be a bit slow on week machines, because of the 1024x768 true-color mode and many different features and effects (which are fully done by only the CPU for now, so, better cpu = better speed). But you always can disable effects from the starting menu, and set your WB to 16bit mode for gain more speed for if necessary. But I am pretty sure, many of you will be happy to read such a modern diskmag, which full of features (such as a integrated musicdisk part and great Amiga related articles) on AmigaOS4, even, if for some of you it will be not very fast. Engine of course can still have some little bugs and problems, and if you will found any - contact me, and i will fix it for the next issues.

The first issues of HUGI were more or less PC centric, but the latest ones start to be more and more crossplatform, and Hugi#36 which we released now, is half based on amiga-related topics. Since issue #32 Magic of Nah-Kolor (the old and wellknown amiga group) is the co-editor of Hugi, and that can explain more Amiga-related context.

In brief, if you want to start by the amiga-related articles, we advide the following ones:

-- Amiga Scene: Jump into the hole (my article about the current situation with aos4/mos/aros)
-- BreakPoint 2009 - From a Breakpoint TV point of view (about amiga releases mostly)
-- The Vague - Amiga Diskmag on stage - Part 3 (my article about our warp3d diskmag)
-- Mad Wizards - looking back with Azzaro (about Elude as well)
-- Muffler: from amiga musian to top DJ Producer (yeah, we all remember Muffler !)

Many articles are not related to any platfrom, but about everything in demoscene in general, so Hugi#36 will be interesting to read all the way.

Have fan, enjoy, and wait for other Hugi issues which will be released on Amiga AOS4 as well ! (Do not forget to swith music trackrs by 1-8 keys , or use the music-menu. Music-disk part in that issue are awesome and professional).

Download it from scene.org HERE (77 mb).

Also you can see HUGI36 on AOS4 in action on Amiga25years celebration party in Holand on youtube here: part1 and part2.


More information at http://hugi.scene.org

PS. if you have any problems with diskmag engine, write me at kas1e@yandex.ru Also if you have interest to support Hugi on by Amiga (aos3/aos4/mos/aros/general ones) articles, you can contact Magic of Nah-Kolor at magic_nah@hotmail.com or also contact me and I will help you the best I can.

Very nice looking!
It is pretty usable (certainly not fast) with everything on my high-end Sam.
Thanks!

Yep, the same engine. Only on morphos a bit configure window are ####ed by colors, but diskmag itself are works fine too. Hope soon to change that boring sdl-config window on reaction for aos4 (or maybe mui, to make it works also on morphos), and add playing of mp3/mo3 (for now only ogg/wav), and maybe opengl support, to make it works smooth-fast even on current platforms

Thank you for any feedback given.

GCC, notepad, dopus4 and shell (for aos4 version of engine).

But that is not my magazine, that magazine do many musicans, graphicans, text writers and editors (on different platforms and OSes, and macos, and win32, and aos4 too). I only write to that magazine 2 articles, and only make aos4 version of engine, to make it works on aos4.

Btw, right now also in upload query on os4depot, fixed version of EC48 diskmag, which also works fine now on AOS4, because use the same engine which i compile with latest SDL and all other libs.

To make magazines of such quality (like EuroChart, Hugi), many ppls spend many time to making it (up to 1-2 years). Because need draw all the graphics, create music, write articles, spellcheck it to good english, to good border canvas, to good design (add right pictures to every article, mark on/off some text, color some text) - all to make readers happy when they read article.

For sure its unpossible to do such kind of diskmags alone. Even for our TheVague diskmag i do only code / design and articles mostly, but for graphics, music and site, there was about 10-15 ppls. That all not so easy of course, but it worth of end result.

Of course when you do all alone, its not so easy, but just make a little paper , which good looking and interesting not only by reading, but also by look and design - very possible. I hope you can do that too, because we all will only won in that case.

So you are the people who made "The Vague"?
If so, can you please tell me where I could download, eg. the HTML versions of issues #1 and #2? Because your site closed... Thanks...
