Amiga Future

Author: osz
It's exciting to see where Amiga fans are located all over the world. Siamak Habibzadeh is an Amiga fan and comes from Karaj in Iran. This is about 50 km from Tehran. Siamak has published instructions as a PDF file in its GitHub repository on how to modify the TEAC FD-55GFR 7193-U, a 5.25" floppy drive, to use it as an 880 KB floppy drive on the Amiga. An almost exotic idea given the age of these drives and floppy disks, but nothing is crazy enough for the Amiga.

Here you can find the instructions on GitHub: https://github.com/Siliconix/Amiga-5.25-FDD

Siamak also runs his own website for Persian Amiga fans, where he presents, among other things, his home-made hardware for Amigas and other systems: http://commodore-amiga.ir/

Amiga Future

Author: AndreasM
A few days ago issue 154 of the Amiga Future was published.

For everyone who overlooked the date, it would be a good time to order the magazine quickly.

Or maybe an annual subscription right away? Then you will always have the latest issue automatically delivered to your home and you don't have to go around
take care of the publication dates of the individual issues. And you even save money in the process.

Amiga Future

Author: AndreasM
As our printed issues of the Amiga Future magazine has been in regular publication for almost 25 years, it is now time to massively increase our team that edits the magazine and webpage. The intention is to spread the workload of our entire team and to divide it over more shoulders, so the workload for each editorial team member involved gets reduced, though as a result of this staff increase, we also want to increase its overall quality.

So, that the next 25 years will be somewhat easier for everyone involved.

The list of personnel we are looking for is quite long:

* Editors for the print edition of the Amiga Future
* Translators for the print edition of the Amiga Future
* News editors for the Amiga Future homepage
* Full commitment on the Amiga Future webpage
* Advertising management for the magazine and website
* Maybe offer some suggestions for how else you can assist us?

Editors for the printed issues of the Amiga Future
****************************************************
We are particularly interested in coverage of these areas:

* Demo scene
* Applications 68k
* Games 68k, AmigaOS4, MorphOS
* Hardware (all system areas)

Would you like to work on our print magazine for the Amiga that has been around for almost 25 years?

Then just get in touch with us.

The following requirements are these, but should go without saying:

* You should own an Amiga, which is logical!
* You should not only own your Amiga, but use it. As in, you need to know the way your Amiga generally works.
* Your spelling doesn't need to be perfect but reasonably OK.
* It is of course ideal if you have already written reports.
* Of course you should also have enough spare time to invest with us and interest in doing so.


Translator for the print edition of the Amiga Future
****************************************************
The Amiga Future is in German and English.
As a result, articles have to be translated into each respective language.
We have sufficient translators for the Amiga Future.
However, when it comes to submitting articles, many text files need to be translated in a relatively short time. This is our famous bottleneck that regularly creates undue and unwelcome stress to all.
So, we want to permanently solve this problem.

To alleviate this problem, we are looking for more translators to bolster support for our printed issues of Amiga Future.

Our requirements are that you should possess good grammar and spelling in your own language (German or English) and also understand the German or English language as well.

That is so you are able to understand what you are translating. However, basic knowledge of the Amiga is necessary in all cases.


News editors for the Amiga Future homepage
***********************************************
The news area of the Amiga Future webpage has grown a lot over the last few years, but that's not enough for our needs.
In the long term it is our goal that all Amiga news can be found on the Amiga Future webpage, and of course we also want more in-depth news.

Some users already take care of the news on the webpage, but we still need to achieve our long-term goals as well, so major reinforcement in the news team is still required.


Full versions for the Amiga Future homepage
*******************************************
We continue to publish full commercial versions on the Amiga Future webpage, as we have done for many years.
The aim is to offer users improved free and legal download options.

The effort to enable this is now somewhat overwhelming:

As the rights holder for such software must be found. That alone is often very difficult.
After that you need to have their permission to publish such software.
In many cases, the software itself has to be searched around for.
At the end of the day, a package has to be put together, which can then be published on our webpage.

So, we are looking for users who can support us as independently as possible.


Advertising in the magazine and on the website
**********************************************
In our Amiga Future printed magazine we are currently quite well supported with advertisements.
Nevertheless, we are constantly looking for other long term advertisers for the magazine.

It looks a little different on the Amiga Future webpage. We also have advertisements there, but not as much as we'd like.
We are quite openly looking for long-term advertisers there.

Advertising is a very important benefit to us, as advertising greatly supports our costs.

Without advertising, a magazine like our Amiga Future, as well as our webpage, would not be possible in the long term.


How else can you help us?
*****************************
- We look forward to each and every subscription and recommendation that is made for our magazine, both of which are greatly appreciated.
We have a constantly increasing circulation, which is obviously good news for our magazine.
However, for our goals to be achieved, a boosted content edition is required.

- Provided that we can supplement our editorial team for the magazine, one of our next goals is to permanently increase the number of pages in the Amiga Future. However, this will require additional subscribers as well as sufficient long-term advertising customers. A sponsor wouldn't be a bad thing either, but that is probably unrealistic.

- We also want to improve distributing messages about the Amiga Future magazine.
Do you have a news page, a blog or something similar and would like to publish news reports about the Amiga Future? Then contact us. We are happy to add you into our News distribution list.

- We are continually looking for places where we could add meaningful (!) advertising for the Amiga Future.

- From the start of this year we have been getting to grips with using our new software to manage subscribers, bills and other data.
Now, at last, it is possible to send Amiga Future subscription invoices via email. If someone wants to accept a subscription offer sent that way then please contact us directly, as it saves us a lot of work when placing the invoices.

- With our new software, it is now easier to manage subscription bills by direct debit, which also saves us more time.
We hope that as many readers as possible will use the direct debit method of payment. You can find a PDF form for this purpose at the URL: http://www.apc-tcp.de/lastschrift.pdf
Currently, direct debits are only possible within Germany.

Amiga Future

Author: AndreasM
35 years of gaming experience, as well as 20 years worth of Internet videos - Virtual Dimension has been dealing with the digital world for many years to report on interesting, as well as, background information. Whether that's the C64, Amiga, PC, Atari or Schneider: Virtual Dimension knows the history of computer gaming and so gives you the chance to glance backwards while at the same time looking forward to the future.

Since our last announcement, Virtual Dimension has now put the following videos online:

Das Erbe #3: Mit dem Bus in die Stadt (RetroPlay/Amiga)

Wenn zwei Jungs sich als Umweltpriester vom Maler beschimpfen lassen und dann über die verschiedenen Dämmarten diskutieren. Wenn Blowerdoor-Tests mit der Community besprochen werden und KfW Förderungen vom Hagenschen Anwesen nachgefragt werden. Ja dann hat Das Erbe sein Ziel bis hierher doch gut erreicht! Sensibilität für das Thema Umweltschutz schaffen. Trotzdem rücken die Jungs auch die Bezahlbarkeit der Maßnahmen immer wieder in den Fokus.
Und im Spiel geht es jetzt weiter Richtung Innenstadt. Und wie? Klar, mit den Öffis!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qh2EMRoDyg


Das Erbe #4: Erdbeeren mit Schlagsahne (RetroPlay/Amiga)

Unser geerbtes Anwesen glänzt langsam in neuem Glanz, die Elektrogeräte und Möbel sind ausgetauscht. Und jetzt bereiten wir Sahne zu. Das Erbe stellt uns erneut vor ganz neue Herausforderungen.
Diese Adventure-Perle aus dem Anfang der 1990er lässt Hagen und Dennis auch heute wieder umweltgerecht agieren und im Anschluss nascht auch der Spieler Erdbeeren mit Sahne. Und an seiner neuen Freundin.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mu9edG_j55o


Historyline #244: Gewürze, Spirituosen und giftige Schnecken (RetroPlay/Amiga)

Während auf dem Schlachtfeld die Fetzen fliegen, machen Hagen und Dennis einen kleinen thematischen Ausflug in die kulinatische Küche. Echte indische Küche in Finnland... am Ende landen wir beim Fischbrötchensimulator. Zurück zum Geschehen - der Panzer bekommt langsam Struktur und die Einheiten bekommen Stück für Stück Platz auf dem Feld. Quasi Flurbereinigung, aber der Feind kommt in Massen...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWXxUtM1V-E


Amiga-Welt, Computer persönlich und andere Zeitschriften (Retro ausgepackt)

Und es wird ausgepackt! Dieses Mal schmökern sich Dennis und Markus (Ja, Markus!) durch ein paar schwere Kisten. Denn die Schwesterzeitschrift der Happy Computer, die Computer persönlich, wird mal gleich in einer großen Schachtel geliefert. Oder doch lieber ein paar alte Jahrgänge? Wie wärs mit der Elektor von 1975?
