Game: Fade to Black 1.8

Fade to BlackSerk118uk announced to have released an updated version of the port of Fade to Black. The version now reads 1.8 and Serk118uk made his work available for us to download.

Fade to Black is a single player action adventure game which was originally released by Delphine Software International. The game itself is successor of well-known game Flashback.

In this game you play a character who goes by the name of Conrad Hart and who finds himself imprisoned by the Morphs. From there the player needs to solve and complete different tasks and missions in order to progress the storyline.

The game requires a Aros supported (3D) video card as well as additional data files. Serk118uk provided a very nice installer for the data files as well. In case you encounter any troubles or experience issues with this game then please report them to Serk118uk so he can properly address them. Reports or other comments can be posted here.

Compiler: (WiP) Free Pascal + LCL + fpGUI (v20131120)

FreePascalALB42 announced another updated version of his port of Free Pascal, LCL and fpGUI for Aros and uploaded his work to the archives for us.

Free Pascal is a 16/32/64-bit professional Pascal compiler and originally supports many targets, has support for OOP and many extensions that can be expected from a modern compiler. The 2.7.1 version of Free Pascal used in ALB42's package is one from the  experimental branch.

This package comes included with rudimentary LCL implementation, which allows you to create GUI programs using simple Lazarus components. The accompanied fpGUI is a multiplatform toolkit for creating graphical user interfaces and is currently at release 0.8, and is also a work in progress.

This release includes complete rewrites of the most basic units such as exec, dos, intuition and graphics. This release also includes a full release of the updated sources (which can be downloaded from ALB42's FPC webpage) as well as additional documentation that can be used f.e. with FP-IDE. The documentation can also be found online.

Please also note that this is a WiP, so unexpected behaviour can occur. For more support please visit the links to the respective websites that are present in this post, but if you run into trouble you can also contact ALB42 and other Free Pascal users in this thread.

Software: ZuneFig 1.1 (r318)

ZuneFigYannickescu is continuously working on his ZuneFig project and announced an updated release of ZuneFig to version 1.1.

ZuneFig is a vector drawing program based on Xfig that started out as port with the name AmiFig. ZuneFig inherited most (if not all) functionality from the original Xfig program.

In this update several issues were addressed including the addition of a new freehand mode for spline and line drawing (suggested by Manu), the correction of mouse button function indication in ellipse and circle drawing, a correction for elastic display in arc mode while using center drawing functions, a reworked edit and mode windows so that they better fit low-resolutions screens (now 1024x768 is minimal needed to get the best comfort), the addition of AutoSave preferences (includes saving the window positions) and completely reworked sliders in the main drawing window.

If you have some feedback for Yannickescu or otherwise have questions then you can read more about ZuneFig in this thread.

Bounty: Odyssey Web Browser Bounty Project

OdysseyAnother collaboration (bounty)project has been announced. This time it's all about opening up those parts of the odyssey web browser (from Fab) to be able to get odyssey more up-to-date.

A-Siegel wrote:

The aim of the Odyssey Web Browser Bounty Project is to license a current version of the full-featured Odyssey Web Browser and share it under an open source license so it can be ported to AROS (and AmigaOS).

While the author of the Odyssey Web Browser has previously shared parts of his work entirely for free, which already improved the browser choices on these two platforms by a great deal, these existing ports of Odyssey use an outdated version of the Webkit browser engine and lack key functionality such as the capability to play HTML5 video.

More information about this bounty can be read on the bounty page of Odyssey on the power2people website, and Aros discussion can be read in this thread.

Distribution: Aminux 0.02a

Pascal 'Phoenixkonsole' Papara announced the availability of the first public release of his brand new distribution called Aminux.

Aminux is an x86 based microknoppix distribution that automatically boots into the amiga-emulator FS-UAE which on its turn runs Aros Vision.

Sounds complicated ? Not really, as it is one of the easiest ways of running Aros 68k inside an amiga-emulator on an x86 computer. Simply write the download image to an usb-pen drive, insert it into your (x86) machine, and Aros/Amiga emulation is just a boot-sequence away.

Aminux already supports ATI, NVidia and Intel GPU's and works very well with ECS and AGA games. Networking should work 'out of the box', and the stylish FS-UAE interface tops it all off.

Aminux requires a minimal pen drive size (partition) of 4GB and needs to be 'written' by using a tool like dd or winimagewriter.

Video: Pascal shows Aminux running.
