Alar~
• Whole lot a shaking goin' on. ..
We're waiting for the Big One. We felt the earth move in June
and July as a series of record earthquakes rocked California
(coordinating editor Matt got a bump on his head and for the
second time a Southern California quake kil led one of our office
hard drives). In the meantime, we Atarians wait for the Big One
to be released by Atari, in hopes of rocking the computer
landscape with new features and power.
It's the "Falcon" we're taJking about here, the new machine to
be unveiled this fall. But, as you expected, we have more than a
hint of what to expect ftom the Falcon (or whatever it ends up
being caJled) in this issue ofAtariUser.
July and August vacationing takes its toll on everything in the
computer industry, and AtariUser is no exception. [Jut we are here
again, on time, this and every month, when some magazines toss in
the towel and take a break. We think that you prefer it that way.
Our outs1anding information this month includes an extended
Q&A session on the Portfolio with BJ Gleason. LOls'a news, new
products, and our comprehensiveAVs AturiLand Calendar as
usual. Add our Resource section with a directory of the membership of the Independent Association of Atari Developers, and
you've got another "keeper" issue of A tari User for your future
reference.
We're adding new statrmembers at AtariUser, and will be reorganizing the opemtion to make it easier to gel in touch with us, to
subscribe to us, and to pass us the information we all need to help
keep Atari Users happy and productive. More on that next month.
Also in the months ahead, look for our 8-bit Atari column to
cover some exciting new software fhim Europe, and our MIDI
column will return with developer-by-developer analysis of the
music software systems for the Atari.
All in all, we think you' ll be pleased to know that our changes
are taking our established efrorts and making them still more stable,
at a time when stability is mre.

What ever happened
to the AUA?
Many individuals and Atari user groups sent money to the
Atari Users Association in 1990 and 1991, and haven't heard
from the group since. Intended as a "unified voice" of Atari
usen;, the group offered a software library, a newsletter, and
high hopes, but suffered from lack ofrea! purpose and
direction. In mid 1991, theAUA took up the cause of working
again~t pirciCy, a campaign that attracted positive attention and
more membership. However, shortly after the AUA took the
anti-piracy stance, Derek Signorini, president of the AUA,
received a phone bill totalling almost S2,ooo, apparently
performed by a "phreaker" as a warning to the AUA against
further activity. Derek reportedly used the existing AUA
finances as well as cash raised by the sale of all of his Atari
equipment to pay a settlement of 112 of the bill. According to
Eric Lambeth, who wants to reorganize the AUA, no funds
whatsoever remain to make refunds to the 253 members who
each paid SIOto SIS.

SPA Fights Piracy
An FBI raid on a Boston bulletin board system (BBS) yielded
seizure of computers and records of operntions that show
illegal distribution of software to users in 36 states and II
foreign countries, including Israel, Australia, Canada, Croatia,
France, Germany, IrdQ, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and
the United Kingdom. The BBS was "Davy Jones Locker" and
opernted by paid subscription, offering users access to over 200
pirated programs ranging up to the $3,500 AutoCAD system,
and a number of prerelease versions of software that can't even
be bought by the general public. No arrests were made yet,
pending further investigation of criminal charges. Civil suits
have been filed in Federal Court by the Software Protection
Association on behalf of their member developers, charging
board operntors with copyright infringement and seeking an
unspecified amount of compensatory damages. The SPA
estimates software pirdCY worldwide co~ts the computer
indu~1ry $10 billion to $12 billion a year.
In the Atari marlcet, some small developers have had
pirdCY of their products make the difference between success
and failure of their companies.
Other news from the SPA via surveys of over 1,000 home
computer and video game users ... 40% of entertainment
software users in the survey and 26% of education software
users admitted to the SPA that they copy software from friends,
work, or from school.
Education and recreation software rank nearly equal in use
by those who use them, loggirig an average of four hours a
week per user. There are, however, many more game users.
Nearly 40"10 of entertainment software homcs have no children,
while only 22% of education software is in childless homes.
Personal productivity software comes out high~t in homes
with no children, but not far above entcrtainment programs.
Personal productivity software users own an average of3.6
progrdll1s, while entertainment users own almost ten.
For those with a high school education, computer use is
less than one third that of video games. College degreed user's
PC use at home is about double their video game usage. PC
use is also tied strongly to income, with 41 % of homes with
PC's having incomes over $50,000, versus only 23% for those
with video games.

... Arabesque has unusual menus, but
Bitmap and Vector sections are similar.
Arabesque
Professional
IT.
ST, STe,
Gribnif Software has brought another German
import to the USA in ARABESQUE PROFESSIONAL, a
premium monochrome drawlpaint program. Like CodeHead's
Megapaint (reviewed in the June AtariUser), Arabesque makes
the mo!.t of two different graphics worlds-vector (draw) and
ra!.ter (paint). It runs in any resolution of monochrome (STI
and requires at 1ea31 one meg of memory and a double
sided disk. Arabesque Pro (there is no "vanilla" Arabesque in
the USA) is supported by an excellent 172 page manual and a
quick tour section that holds your hand while you get used to
the different functions. The 3-ring binder and disk are housed
in a professional-looking box.
Arabesque presents a full-screen work area, plus a small
strip at the top with the cursor coordinates. lbe (many)
toolboxes appear only on command, saving screen space but
making it more difficult to maneuver in the beginning. After a
somewhat steep learning curve, this system becomeS very
efficient, and functions can be performed with the mouse or
keyboard equivalents.
Clicking on an icon or hitting the space bar toggles
between the mapped and vector parts of the program. Many
icons are ambiguous at tir..l, requiring extensive use of the
manual. But the same icons are used with both the mapped
and vector menus when possible, making it easier to learn and
use the functions in the pop-up menus.
'Ine Bitmap mode is the "paint" mode, with all the tools
and functions you'd expect. Also available are arc segments
for both circles and ellipses, pamllelogmms, polygons, and
text Extra ~-pecial features include a way offilling shapes with
either a gradient fill that can be rotated in 90 degree increments, and the ability to till an irregular shape with whatever is
in the buffer, including graphics that can be loaded into any
irregular shaped object. You can also loosely cut out irregular
images and Ambesque will shrink the outer edge of your cut to
the shape of your image, allowing you to p~te it somewhere
else without the area outside your image cutting into another
image. Special block functions allow you to manipulate the
block in the buffer to invert, contour (outline), ~mooth, mirror,
rotate, bend, pull (distort width and length) etc. You can undo
changes made from ju~t the I~t operdlion or from the last.time
you accessed the pop-up menu.
Vector ("drdw") mode presents the usual object-art stuff
like circles, ellipses, arc segments, triangles, polygons, and
bezier curves. 'Ine nature of vector dmwing takes advantage of
abilities to ~1reteh, layer, and re-organize multi-part drdwings.
The vector mode text function is more extensive than the
bitmap mode text function, making it possible to edit text afler
: it has been typed in.
2
Images can be copied between bitmap and vector S(,.'Ctions,
~ enabling creation and saving of art with components of both
Tn
!
kinds. Creating a bitmap image from a vector is a snap,
allowing conversions of clip art for use in some bit-only layout
programs. Further, the ability to hand tmce bitmaps with
vectors allows you to make jaggie-free blowups of any scan art.
Of course, that's a tedious proci:ss for large projects, and
Gribnifs CONVECIDR progmm (separdlely available ill
under $1 (0) will quickly convert bitmapped files into vector
fbrmat, and will operdie as an integrated part of Ardbesque.
Ambesque allows you to use all of your tools in the
magnify mode, just as you would in your regular viewing
mode. '1his is the first time I've seen this type of thing, and it's
a welcome addition to the progr.trn.
You can load/save in all the ~tandard monochrome bit
formats, including the Ardbesque deFault gmphic form!ll
(.ABM), .IMG, .PAC (Stad), PI3 (un-compressed ), and .IFF,
plus Calamus .CVG format and GEMl3, as well as .AOB
(Ardbesque OBJECI'), 'Ihe AOB format takes advantage of
all of Ambesque fl:atures, like placing bitmap images in a
vector drawing, and it's much smaller than other formats.
Ardbesque uses GDOS fonts but doesn't require GDOS
itself, even for printing. Gribnif also says that Ardbesque will
work perfectly with FSMGDOS but that you are not currently
able to manipUlate the fonts as you might do with a progr.trn
like OUTLINE ART from ISD Marketing. Further, a font
converter progr.trn for making GEMlGDOS files out of
SIGNUM format lonts is included.
While it doesn't havt: the control over the minute details

the FIT function of one

RE:Views
that Megapaint does, Arabesque offers the ability to freely
experiment with the editing of files that you are working on.
Different versions of a picture can reside in a number of
screens in memory at the same time. I can cut, paste or do
anything between screens, to experiment with as many
different combinations of effects as I can conjure up. Up to 20
pages can reside in memory.
All in all, this is a powerful, solid, productive tool that's
great for someone who likes to take an idea and play with it,
changing it on a whim. But its professional-level power carries
a professional-level price.· If you plan no more than simple
manipulation of images that are created by other progmms, you
might be served jw,t as well by some of the less expensive,
simpler paint progmms on the market. For a graphic artist who
is serious about the work, Arabesque will ~timulate and
accelerate the creative process, something money can seldom
buy. Arabesque Professional, $199.95 from GribnifSoftware

Lynx Casino
Lynx. Video gambling games
are hard to promote. While
such a game lets players
experience the thrills safely, if
there are no real winnings, why
bother! Lynx Casino doesn't
resolve this parddox, but it does
offer a risk-free alternative to
Atlantic City. It's a collection
of five games: Blackjack,
Craps, Roulette, Slot Machines,
and Video Poker. You ~tart off
with $1000, and can get two
loans of$500 each, but when the money's gone, the game
ends. You can also ComLynx with a fiiend for a mini-junket.
The ~t thing about Lynx Casino is that it accurdtely
captures the experience of casino gambling. Authentic rules,
odds, and payoffs are used, and each game allows the same
options that the real oners. For instance, CrdPS supports
everything from Pass and No Pass to Hard Way and Hom bets,
while Roulette uses a Double Zero wheel and allows numerous
number combinations. The only discrepancy is that you're
always the dice shooter on Crdps. Statistics are kept for each
game session, allowing Lynx Casino Lo be played on two
levels: casual players can have fim making bets, while selfproclaimed experts can develop and exercise strc!legies.
Grdphics in Lynx Casino are decent overdJl, with a touch
of cartoon whimsy as you guide your on-screen persona
among the tables, staff, and bystanders. You can talk to a few.
Most time is spent at the games, which are drawn with good
use of color and detail. Sound effects are not as interesting; a
variety of tunes play during the game, though they can be
tumed off if desired. Other than that, sounds are few and fuirly
simple.
Lynx Casino is a good, no-nonsense video version of the
Vegas experience. Ifyou want to refine your Craps straIBgem,
or just enjoy blowing imaginary money, this game will easily
fit the bill. Atari Corp, $39.95. - Robert Jung
Hydra
Lynx. You are known as
Hydra, though no government
admits you exist. You are a
mercenary whose ~ialty is
the transport of"sensiti ve"
packages, using your Hydrafoi~
a one-man speedboat There is
danger from those who don't
want your cargo delivered.
Only the best survive, but you
are the best. Maybe.
This is Hydra for the Lynx,
an adaptation of the Atari
Games arcade title. From behind your boat, you pilot through
nine levels of rivers and oceans, grabbing money bags for
bonuses and cry~laIs for fuel. There are gun embankments,
enemy ships, jets and more, but you can fly temporarily to
escape. Finish a mission and you compete for money in a
bonus ~tage, then buy more weapons for the next job.
A hit will de~troy your Hydrclfoil, but that's okay, as
survival is measured in fuel; the game ends only when you run
out. This version is slightly easier than the arcade, yet remains
of averdge difficulty and offers unlimited continues. Objects
appear in fixed orders, but later levels use a lot of enemies and
a rarity oftile! as cballenges. The controls seem backwards;
you press down to accelerdte and up to decelerate, but this
doesn't afIi:ct playability. Unlike Roadblasters, the steering is
grddual, making driving and aiming easier.
'Ibe digitized graphics of the arcade appear fine on the
Lynx, though the colors make some items a little muddled.
Judging collisions requires experience; initial fomys will have
crdShes with obstacles you thought you avoided. Sounds are
good, and consist of your engines, chimes when items are
retrieved, assorted weapons fire, and lots of explosions.
Hydrd borrows heavily from the earlier game
Roadbla~ters, and offers little that's truly different. That
doesn't make it any less fun, and this version is a good
adaptation that will be enjoyed by action players and funs of
the original. Atari Corp, $39.95. - Robert Jung •

Atari Backs-Up Lynx
The number two item on most Lynx
owners' wish lists (with number one
being lots ofnew games) is that Atari
would start letting the public know
'about the Lynx. I'm extremely happy
.to report that Atari is starting to m(lke
that wish a reality.
The first step towards this was the acquisition of the
"Batman Returns" license. This was the sort of high
visibility
product that the Lynx has been lacking.
has a strong stable of popular arcade titles,
uite a few home player.; (especially the
,nOF'r m,,,,,l, r!nn·'
the arcades much and need some
Sonic to get them
tie-in out in time
was going to
record, this seemed
out of the hat with this
shelves a week before
the she! ves, you've got
. is where Atari really
around. No sooner had the
were running on a regular
programming such as "The
bought some prime time
and "Saturday Night Live."
. Atari's special promotion
. could get the Batman title for
high profile title to entice
and the results are ~1arting to be
noticeable.
nmmnltinn started, the Toys 'R Us I
frequent has been sold out or the Lynx. This 'Ioys 'R Us has
also ,1arted to use part of the Game Gear wall space lor Lynx
cartridges.
Hopefully, this good marketing sense is a sign of good
things to come.
The Taste of Chicago is THE big summer event here in
Chicago. It's a 9 day food festival which attracts over a million
people. At the Taste, you can by out all kinds offoods from
many of the best restaurants in the city. Along with all the
food, there's plenty offree entertainment, and this year some of
that entertainment was provided by the Lynx.
Atari had a tent with over 100 Lynx systems set up.
People got to play special short ver.;ions of Batman Returns,
Pinball Jam, Hydra, and NFL Football, and the people who
had the highest scores on the games at the end of the day won a
Lynx. After.the second day they stopped using NFL Football.
It seems quite a few people could only score 7 points in the
time a1loted so there weren't any definitive high scorers. lbey
used a random drawing on the rest of the days to determine
who would win a Lynx.
As you left the tent, you got a Lynx sticker. A local TV
~tation was picking out people at random to receive a Lynx
system during the live broadcast of their afternoon cartoon
show.
Atari was expecting 90,000 people to pass through their
tent by the end of the Taste, and jUdging by the lines on the last
day, I bet they got at I~'t that many.
HiStory Repeats Itself
A little more than a decade ago, the most popular arcade game
around was released for play on home systems. Despite a steep
price, the game sold like cmzy. The game, of course, was Pac
Man, and it came out for the Atari 2600 for around $55 .
As I write this, the most popular arcade game of today has
ju~t made its home debut, and it, too, is selling in huge
number.; even with a big price tag. This game is Street Fighter
2 (sorry, for the Super Nintendo) and clocks in at $75.
'[be similarities are interesting but it's the differences that
are ~'triking. Pac Man WdS an 8 kilobyte cartridge and was
barely recognizable compared to the arcade original. Street
Fighter 2 is a 2 Megabyte cartridge and is a perfect audiovisual and gameplay clone ofits original. It's a good indication
of how far game sy~tems have come technically. Game prioes
aren't too high when you think about it-ten years later, for
only $20 more you get a game that has 256 times Jhe rnemoty.
And ALL of the Lynx titles are cheaper today than Pac Man
was years ago. ~inton Smith.
Atar! at the Taste of Chicago
When Atari decided to not exhibit on the floor of the
Summer Consumer Electronics Show, I was disappointed. I
figured that Atari had blown a great opportunity to show the
Lynx olno the public. Little did I know that they had bigger
things in mind.

Will the Pamllel pon ancVor Serim pon drain the batteries

Whenever using the serial or pardlld port, you should
always use the AC adapter, These ports require about as much
power as the Portfolio and will quickly drdin the batteries,

'Inc computer will tum itsclfon ahout

Will the Pon/olio run IBMJiles?
Because of the unique design of the PortFolio, not all
progrdmS designed for a PC will run it. 'Ine most common
is that many progrdmS directly address the hardware,
Much of the Portfolio's hardwdre is slightly different and this
will cause a conflict. 'Ihere are some other differences, but to
make the Portfolio as compatible as possible with a PC, access
the SETUP menu and under DISPLAY set EXTERNAL
MODE to TRACKED, REFRESH to BOTH, and SPEED to

batteries quicker,
How often should the bl/nery iI/tile RAMmnl be repll/ced?

..,
Clln I use NiCOlls in my Portfolio?
It spossible to use rechargeable batteries in the Portfolio, but be warne~the
discharge drop-oflon rechargeable batteries are much steeper than normal
alkaline batteries, so you might not even see the LOW BA1TERY warning. Keep
everything on a RAMcard is you want to use rechargables,

Portfolio F.A.Q.
• Old you know you can
get a llat
0' 'llaname.
when you want to load a
"Ie Into an application?
When a built-in application
asks for a filename to load,
type "<return> to display a
list of files for that
application.
place the UPDATE command in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file
so that it is activated when you reboot your machine.
What are some o/the Bugs in the Porl/oiio?
The number one bug, one that causes fiustl"dted new
owners to bring the machine back to the dealer more than any
other: if you try to load a zero length file into one of the built-in
applications, the Port will lock up. This is especially easy to
cause when first playing with the applications; if you save a file
with nothing in it, next time you load that application, you're
dead. Just reboot the machine, delete the zero length liIe, and
you should be ready to go.
Then there's the "ShotGun" bug. When you power up the
Portfolio, it will write a random byte to a certain memory
location. If an application is loaded, this can mangle the data
file. One way around is to exit any applications before the
machine powers down, or enter the following lines in the
CONFIG.SYS file:
FILES=20 BUFFERS=32
'The randomized memory location will then always be
inside the file buffer area, and will not affcct the data liIes.
Also, the Portfolio will lock up if you try to load a liIe into
the editor that ends with a <SPACE><RETURN>. 'Ihe
UPDATE program fixes this bug.
How do I reboot the Porl/olio?
When the Portfolio locks up, there are three ways to reboot
the machine. First try the "three finger salute,"
<CiR.L><ALf><DEL>. If this has no efli::ct, tum the
machine upside down, and aboY!; the Atari label, there is a
hole. Use a paper clip to depress the switch in the hole. If the
Portfolio ~till .refuses to reboot, you will have to cold boot the
machine. Remove the battery cover. Use a paper clip to
depress the small metal tab. 'Ihe cold reboot will take your
Portfolio back to when you first got it. You will even have to
tell it what language you want to use. Everything on drive C:
will belo~t.
Have your programs take-up less space.
Disk space is a prime concern on the Portfolio. To make
progrnms smaller, there are two utilities, LZEXE and PKLITE,
which will compress programs to' about 213 's their original
size. And the cool part is that they still run!
Can I "In MSiDOS 3.0 or /aler on the POI1/0/i0~
No, The unit is MSIOOS 2.11 compatible in ROM. Due
to the hardware differences and memory limitations, other
versions of DOS will not run on it
Is a Technical Manual Available/or the Porl/o/Jo~
If you're an amateur or professional developer and want to
develop programs that take advantage of the inner workings of
the machine, a Tcchnical Reference manual is available from
Atari for $60. Call Gail Bacani at (408) 745-2022 for more
details. The manual includes emulation software for the pc,
What are .PGc, .PGF, and .PGX flies?
Don Messerli, of the Software Vineyard, has developed
the .PGC (Portfolio Graphics Compressed) standard. This
~tandard, along with his excellent program, PGSHOW. allows
lor 9 frames per second of animation. It is very impressive.
PBASIC also supports the .PGC ~tandard. and allows up to
about 4 frames per second, There was an earlier version called
.PGF, where the files were always 1920 bytes in size. .PGC
files are compressed to take up less space.. PGX files are part
. of an Animation Package for the Portfolio. Depending on the
complexity of the image, the package is able to display
anywhere from 16 to 20 images per second on the Portfolio's
LCD screen. To see the results of his labor, download
PGFLlX, the animation package, and either DOMINOS.ZIP
or HORSE.ZIP, the mini-movies.
What is a .HOO file?
A .Hoo file is a progmm designed to run from inside the
Portfolio's internal editor. Press <F6> inside the editor to get a
list of .1-100 liles.
Can ,lie ROM be upgrude(l?
No. So there.
What is the APR?
Atari has released the APB (Accessories, Peripherals Bulletin) for the Portfolio.
This twenty page manual includes hints and tips, as well as listing third party
vendors' hardware and software for the Portfolio. For a copy, see your dealer, or
write to Atari, 1196 Borregas Avenue, Sunnyvale, CA 94089-1302. The cover
price is $1.00.

Resollrce
The IAAD
I
In September
1989, a groupo!
Atari developers
met at the
WAACE show in
the Washington,
D.C area and
formed what
would become
the Independant
Association of
Atari Developers,
orthelAAD.
It was a salf-help effort that
has grown to includa Atari
developers from widely
diverse backgrounds with
even wider ranging
interests and projects.
Engineers, programmers,
marketers, and hardware
gurus have worked
together with one common
goal--survival in the hostile
Alari market.
These developers do
something almost unheard
of in other computer
markets: they share
informalion, experiences ,
contacts, distribution
information, and much
more . The members of lhe
IAAD have found that
generosity begets
generosity, and lhat
competition among
comrades means improved
sales and reduced costs for
all.
One of the most
successful projects of the
IAAD has been to secure
international contacts for
dislribution of Atari products
worldwide . This effort has
been bi-directional; U .S.
developers have
established foreign markets
for their own products as
well as becoming U .S .
distributors for fine
