Bars & Pipes Accessories

Mark Burton gave me a patched copy of the MMC accessory for B&P Pro 2.0b a
few years ago and I can’t believe I corrupted my last copy.  It fixed some
problems MMC had encoding the SMTPE format with MMC commands as well as
fixed the RECORD and FF/REW buttons for MMC.

Anyone have this accessory or know where I could get it?  I’ve looked all
over the net to no avail.  How about where are all the files that used to
be on the Blue Ribbon BBS?  I know about the Microsoft thing, BTW.

Thanks in advance for your help!!

MM400 + Picasso-II -> "out of memory"

I take it that MM400 doesn’t really know how to "talk" to the Picasso-II GFX
board? I can select Menu and Playback to "use" the Picasso, but while the
menus may be displayed in whatever Picasso mode is chosen, the Playback
always halts with an "out of memory" error.

Does this imply that an Picasso EX is needed?

Scala 1.1 for NTSC?

I just got Scala 1.1 from the Amiga Format cover disk.  Alas, I
can’t see the bottom of the screens on my NTSC Amiga 3000.

Is there a fix?

Thanks.

DigiView software?

Hello All,

I have a DigiView Gold 4.0 video digitiser for the Amiga. The software I

I wonder if there is a newer software version, or some hack or replacement
software to make it capable of AGA or anything that enhances its features
it on newer Amigas.

Would you please let me know by personal e-mail if you posess something
like this or know of one?

Best regards:

Chris

multimedia mail??

I am looking for some information on voice and video mail programs.

So far, I have found one program, SeeMail, made by RealMedia
(http://www.realmediainc.com). It seems to work with Eudora Pro and some
other mail programs that support attachments.  

Has anyone had any experience with it?
