hardware OS4   hardware OS4 : SAM460Lite & AmigaOS4.1 for DjNick bounty
   posted by kas1e on 6-Jan-2012 11:22:26 (14840 reads)
Most of DjNick's music and graphics was done on Amiga back in the days, and now, he want to help AmigaOS4 to get some better design by making improved skins, icons and graphics. But its pretty hard to be working effectively on gfx design of OS and OS components, when you don't own the actual machine. So, this bountys aim is to get Nikola a sam460EX Lite motherboard & AmigaOS4.1 licence. The Sam460 is EUR 610,- excl. shipping and vat. So we should end at around EUR 850,- which is what we are trying to collect.




Do you remember the days when Amiga was popular because of our skilled artists, who contributed stunning tunes and graphics for amiga games, demos and apps? Sure you remember those days. Many of us was attracted to Amiga because of that.

One of the old-known graphic artist and musicians is DjNick (Nikola Tomic, from Serbia). He contributed for Amiga community back in the past with f.ex. non-commercial music video for a goa-trance song with the name "Warp", which features 3D animations made in LightWave. You can check that video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nD_AltKxwwo
DjNick also Composed music and sound effects for Amiga game "Capital Punishment" for Canadian Publishers "ClickBoom". It was the top Seller "beat’em-up" game in 1996, with music and SFX scores as high as 97% in some computer magazines.

Some recent work of DjNick can be seen on the freshly done AmigaOS4 site http://amigaos.net, which was done to help Hyperion to have a good looking and professional site. Just check all the links below, where you can find most of DjNick's work (music, graphics etc.).

http://www.djnick.rs
http://djnick2k.deviantart.com/gallery
http://www.behance.net/djnick
http://www.coroflot.com/djnick
http://www.youtube.com/djnykk
http://www.graphicriver.net/user/djnick/portfolio?ref=djnick

The work Nikola will do as compensation for the motherboard+OS is outlined belov. Keep in mind that this will be not be official work managed by Hyperion, but 3rd party contributions from a skilled graphic artist.

1. New AOS4 themes (At least one new stylish theme).

2. New Frames for MUI (version of MUI, which will be released in AmigaOS4.2). Those frames can also be used on Morphos's MUI4, so MOS-users can contribute as well;)

3. New MUI themes (At least one new stylish theme). As we soon will have an updated MUI(4?), themes can also be used for MorphOS MUI4 as well.

4. New AOS4 backdrops (1, 2 or more).

5. New AOS4 icons for different kind of projects/games/demos/mags/apps (1, 2 or more, depends).

6. Workbench loading audio samples with female voice.

7. AmigaOS video presentations and animations on Youtube with examples what Amiga can do today.

Understand that this is the minimum work that will be done as compensation for the bounty, much more will hopefully come in the future.

With this bounty we can attract a good designer that loves Amiga computers and it's OS, please make a donation today.

8. To give Sam460 with OS4.1 to magazin Svet Kompjutera - "World of Computers", wich is one of most popular in Balkan- Ex Yu (Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia, Slovenia, Macedonia, BiH) for one review ! :)
Amiga was most popular computer in mid '90, half of that magazine belonged "our" computer.
Last game review is from '99 - Napalm.
Last tekst about NG Amiga is about Sam 440 couple years ago.
Today Amiga is mentioned in retro game section.
Half of jurnalist of that magazine are old school gamers and know very good all about Amiga.
More media don't do any harm!

One of last text abot Amiga from 2007: http://www.sk.co.rs/2007/04/skak03.html

Thank you very much for your support!
I already have some good visions and ideas what I will do to make AmigaOS looking great, modern, futuristic... Can't wait to start working :)

Anyway, Comi, I agree about reviewing in Svet Kompjutera magazine - I will promote Amiga where ever I can :) and will be happy to give them machine for reviews and news. Excellent idea.

@Comi
Why don't you offer them to write a short article on AmigaOS4?
Just a basic article with the current state of AmigaOS4, future (known) plans and a resume of the available hardware.
It sounds like a magazine that would be happy to accept such article if you put some work into it.

On-topic:
Will make a donation myself 01.02, don't have the money atm.

That one which was loane for openoffice guy not worth of it, as he know nothing about amiga os at all, and because of it nothing happens in end, and stalled just on begining of work.

But DjNikk know what amigaos4 is it, he know what expect from it, and how all is structured and organazed. As for me, in compare better have attracted new designer, who know all the stuff, in compare with someone who know nothing about os.

I do not remember the details, but all what i know, that sam machne was send to some guy who works on openoffice, but then, we all understand via his progress-report page, that he just stack all the time on some primitive basics, like crashing of "make", or stalling of "configure" (which all, of course happens, and better to use cross-compiler for that kind of work) and so on. And in last time no real progress at all (by last time i mean last year).

Anyway, that was at least some kind of "let's try", so why not.. Trhough with DjNikk i somehow sure that he will conribute with all his stuff :)

ps. 210 euro now, 640 left

Why not work officially for the AOS team as a freelance dev. ?? - if your work is good they perhaps would be delighted to get someone like you onboard.

Because if he will try to work officially with hyperion, he will get milion of problems of any kind. Strating from ndas, finishing that someone will dislike something, and will dictate to him what he should or should't do.

When he works as he want, he will do what he want, and how he want, without waiting of anything, or asking anything for any kind of permission from anyone. If his work will be intersted to hyperion, then they can then include it (if djnikk will want it), if not , then no problems.

@Hondo

Working for Hyperion? It can take mounts or years to even get NDA, you need a lot of patience, and no it does not help to remind, core developers about it.

If they don’t like to get my help they should say so, not keep me waiting for ever and ever.

It is good idea to work officially for AmigaOS. I have lots of smaller but good ideas how to make OS more attractive to new users, including sound efffects and skins. When I finish what I imagined I will show my ideas to Hyp and see if it can be implemented as official and default into the OS.

@djnick

Just not get your hopes too high about hyperion. Contanting with them can take a years, as well as talking constructive with someone who can make final decissions. Sure can sounds a bit odd, but better if you will not have false hopes at start :)

@all
Common, let's send some more euros from your deep pockets ! :)
