From what I see on the web edition, it is very nice. I like the look. I plan to read more tonight.

Could never seem to get Warp3D working.:-?
Oh well, a good reason now to try again.

All I get is a flickering grey screen with some music playing in the background...

Thanks to all for good words :)

@Cass
I not have any tests on CV-3D, in fact, that i do not have any friends with it, or anyone who want to help me with support it. Personally i am in interest to support all w3d amiga cards, and, if you want and can, we can make fix for it. But need some time from you of course ;)

For first, you can try to choice in preference window:

or mos/aos4
or bvision/cvision
or winaue.

If for all of this will be 'grey' screen, then, try to test your w3d installation by 'warpdemo' from warp3d archive. If all is ok with it, then, problem with diskmag, and need to create a fix. If, warptest do not works for you, then,problem with bad warp3d setup.

@TNovosel
yes, we not have plans to broke 68k support. It was for first, and will have support for second issue. We also think about creating system engine, for plain 640x480x256cols, but here is a lot of works/thinks and so on, and dunno will it, or not.

@Piru
i think TNovosel said somethink 'thanks for 68k support, will be good if you will support it for upcoming issues also'. Or it is not what hi mean?:)

Well, some text inside diskmag say "I'm not gonna support the Amiga 68k  scene  anymore", and this diskmag look like some sort of new demos.
So I think...oh no, next version will be for PPC amigas only.

Thanks again.

@kas1e
WarpDemo runs fine here.
The only option that finally got it to run was the "AOS3 B(C)Vision", with "no sound". Really slow!
If I enable AHI/Paula, the intro screen & mouse cursor freeze just after the fadein.

The whole problem might be the card`s 4MB video mem. Is it enough for the magazine (textures & pics)?

I`m at your service any time for testing.

@cass, yep, very possible that 4mb it's not enought. Becouse most pictures are 640x480x2 bytes, then :

1. logo - 614.400
2. main engine pict - 614.400
3. 4 sprites for menu (size 180x380x2) = 547.200
4. 2 sprite with menu buttons (256x64x2) = 65.536
5. 5 sprites for option (size 256x256x2) = 655.360
6. 2 big sprites for scene/codging corners (size 512x384x2) = 786.432
7. little sprites like: article's sprite, downpanenl buttons and so on.

In end we have, that only for full and smooth work of engine itself (without articles) need somethink  about 3.5mb of video memory.

IF you have 4 only, i assume you also have WB mode somethink kind of 640x480x16 minimum, or 1024x768 :) Then, after you run engine, you already fill all of your memory, and, for articles you have nothink. In this case articles loaded to the system ram, and it's of course very slowly.

What about aos3 b(c) vision, yep, i think it's only one which must be works for you. What about AHI, ahi mode only usable on 060, or maybe on 040, with 11khz. For slow cpu PAULA is only choice.

Where i can found you for little tests ?:)
