AMIStore: new CANDI Update and Dandelion Theme Facebook Google Twitter
.: Posted: AndreasM @ 24.05.2017 - 18:15

Updated Workbench CANDI with Dandelion Theme added

A-EON Technology Ltd is pleased to announce an update to Workbench CANDI, with bug fixes and a few minor changes ready for the next Enhancer Software release. A new Dandelion theme has been added featuring seeds gently blowing in the wind.

Candi Update with Dandelion Theme is FREE to customers who have previously purchased the full retail version of CANDI from AMIStore or Updater utility.

Workbench CANDI introduced the world of composite desktop animation to the AmigaOS. Utilising the power of the hardware compositing engine built into the RadeonHD drivers, CANDI totally integrates with the Workbench and uses the graphics card's GPU to deliver smooth Workbench animations without compromising hardware performance.

Whether it's wispy clouds with a rotating Boing Ball or shimmering, silvery bubbles gently floating upwards and over a retro Amiga Copper background, the CANDI animation effects are simultaneously calming and impressive.

CANDI is fully compatible with the AmigaOS screen dragging feature and more importantly works seamlessly with hardware accelerated compositing video playback introduced with the RadeonHD v2.4 drivers.

The new CANDI Prefs utility enables full control of the dynamic CANDI powered Workbench and incorporate the following key features:-

* Workbench CANDI can be started from WBStartup prefs or manually from the CANDI Prefs icon.
* Ability to choose single or multiple CANDI backdrops and automatically cycle between them.
* A new custom static backdrops option.
* Choose between dynamic and static CANDI backdrops and automatically cycle between them.
* Mix dynamic CANDI animations with custom static backdrops.
* Change the cycle/rotation time for both dynamic and static backdrops.
* A LowCPU option for machines with less powerful CPUs.
* Enable or disable Ringhio notifications while starting and changing an animated background.
* Turn CANDI backdrops ON/OFF or Stop animation from the Prefs application.

Recommended System requirements :
AmigaOS4.1 - Final Edition, RadeonHD v2.10 drivers, a higher specification RadeonHD gfx card

Developers: EntwickerX (Frank Menzel & Thomas Claus)
Artwork/Graphics: EntwicklerX/Kevin Saunders

Workbench Explorer v1.2 Build 2650 released Facebook Google Twitter
.: Posted: AndreasM @ 23.05.2017 - 08:32

Download it from Aminet, OS4Depot, AmiUpdate, or most convenient and current: "Check latest version" from the Project menu.



- Due to an error in the RinghioServer, WEx was causing an error message
in Preferences->Notifications and at reboot (for some people). In order
to fix this:
* Open Preferences->Notifications.
* Select and delete the Workbench Explorer entry.
* Save.
* Re-run Workbench Explorer.

- It seems a lot of people don't like how I was saving the prefs. And I
didn't notice that is was doing a lot of disk writing when moving/resizing
the window.
It is fine, I can adapt. So now when a setting is changed (sort order,
view style, etc) it is NOT saved. You must select 'Save preferences'
from the Project menu. There is also a new feature in Prefs->Operation
'Save preferences on exit' to make things a little easier.


###### [1.2 build 2650] - 2017-05-22
### Added
- 'Load preferences' and 'Save preferences' in Project menu.
- 'Save preferences on exit' in Preferences->Operation page.
- 'Open Shell window' (Amiga + W) to Tools menu.
This opens a default Shell window.
- 'Open Shell window here' to content context menu.
This opens a Shell window at the current path.
- Italian catalog. Thank you, Alessandro Bacchia.
- FLAC audio file support for tags and cover art. It does not have support
for Time, Bit rate, Mode, and Codec. Yet.
There is a slight delay from the datatype before it plays.
- Folder.jpg or Cover.jpg, if they exist in a MP3/FLAC album folder, will
be used instead of looking in the song file.
- Users changed notification system.
- More sanity checks for playing MP3s.

### Fixed
- Delay in moving and resizing of window.
- Deferred and nonbinding assigns are now skipped correctly.
- The cover art was not parsed correctly for some MP3s.
- Thumbnail image wasn't being refreshed for MP3s and FLACs, maybe others.
- Three menu images were not being disposed of properly.
- Error in paste count.

### Changed
- Download menu shortcut is now Amiga + O.
- RinghioServer description.
- RAM: now shows actual usage, not system amount.
The system Free and Total RAM is now displayed in the Details Pane
when at Computer, and the Computer preview.

ZIP Drive installed in Amiga 3000

I add an Iomega ZIP drive to my Amiga 3000 and explain my archiving project.

Nostalgia Time Amiga - Pushover

Today's 'Nostalgia Time' is a subscriber request and the game i'm playing today is 'Pushover' by Ocean. Pushover has been requested by Mauro Sanna and Mats Larson. I play Pushover on the Commodore Amiga 1200 using WHDload.

Nostalgia Time Amiga - Lionheart and Tetris Pro Lemon Amiga Competition

nother 'Nostalgia time' and 'Chillout Time' Merge here, simply because the competition is closing in a few hours and will start next with the game Benefactor which i'm looking forward to yay! ))

Today I play Tetris Pro and Lionheart, both games i've never played before (Tetris yes but not this variant). Both these are played on the Commodore Amiga 1200 using WHDLoad.

Tower57 Amiga Port Video 10

Because especially one nice guy didn't stop asking about the status of the MorphOS version of Tower57 during last weekend's Alternative Computer Meeting in Wolfsburg (which was great fun btw.), here it is:
its status is exactly like the AmigaOS4 version, as is the current performance.

The test machine here is probably one of the slowest MorphOS machines around: an old PowerMac G4 667 MHz, Radeon 9000, 384 MB.

As such its (current!) performance is pretty much identical to the sam440ep. And it also suffers from the same limits and needs to run the HiColor build to not run out of RAM

Some notes:
1. yes, the Voxelbird-Icon is there because I was too lazy
2. the display resolution is 1280 x 720 because that's the only one my framegrabber swallows from that machine.
3. the audio cracks are only in the recording, it's because I didn't adjust the aux-input volume correctly
