Amiga Software Archive
As the former CEO and ultimate rights-holder for SoftCircuits and
Black Belt Systems, I am pleased to make available archives of most of
my/our latest Amiga software to the Amiga community. These archives
include most of the latest releases of our commercial efforts as well as
those written for PD and shareware. You are free to use, and
re-distribute, this software without charge or obligation. I would
appreciate your linking back to this page, but do not require it.
My thanks to Jay Siegel, who created some of these archives
for the Amiga Community.
NOTE: Please be aware that I do not offer any support for this
software; it is provided strictly on an as-is basis.
ADF - Amiga Disk Format archive
DMS - Disk Masher format archive
LHA - LHArc format archive
ZIP - ZIP format archive
When software is only offered in DMS or ADF, this means that it uses an
installer script. If you see it offered in LZH or ZIP, this means it
does not use an installer script.
6809 Flex Emulation
This is a complete 6809 emulator for AmigaDOS. The emulator boots the
6809-Flex operating system, and includes numerous applications
including games, compilers, assemblers, editors, a very broad selection
of 6809-Flex utilities and more. There's also a
Windows version of
this that can run under Windows XP and later.
The AVT is software for HAM radio and SWL listeners who wish to work
with SSTV and FAX images. It also requires specific hardware, the AVT
system from AEA, which is a DSP engine of my design. Very specialized;
if you don't know what it is, you're probably not going to be
ApAssist is a hypertext documentation system. It is not HTML. I am very
proud to say that Black Belt Systems was one of the first companies
with serious commercial products to abandon paper manuals as
insufficently maintainable as compared to online documentation. Inasmuch
as HTML browsers weren't everywhere at the time, we (Pete Patterson was
lead programmer on this project for me) built our own hypertext product
to enable our leap away from dead trees. And here it is!
Board Master v1.19
Board Master is a PCB CAD layout system. It was developed on the basis
of PCLO and then PCLO+, products I wrote and shipped with Daniel
Grostic's invaluable assistance under the banner of my first company,
SoftCiruits. These were written in 68000 assembler for maximum
performance, while using c to code the UI. PCLO was featured in the
Amiga brochure at the 1986 spring Comdex, and Commodore ensconced me in
a showcase section of their main Amiga booth at the same show to
demonstrate PCLO and my first commerical morphing software, SmoothShape.
See ImageMaster, below, for capabilities derived from SmoothShape.
Digital Soup, also known as "crits", short for "critters", is an
artifical life program. "They're not alive when we ship them to you!"
Imagemaster is an image editing and special effects suite for still and
animated image sequences, with built-in direct support for our HAM-E
8-bit hold-and-modify / register recombinant graphics hardware engine as
well as standard Amiga display modes. Notably, Imagemaster contains a
consumer-targeted morphing engine developed on the basis of gridless
point-morphing principles I first publicly demonstrated in 1986 at the
Atlanta spring Comdex, from one of the four showcased vendor perches in
Commodore's Amiga booth, where my company SoftCircuits was featured for
my PCLO product. Trivia: ImageMaster's morphing engine was written in c
by Barry Chalmers in December 1991, after I laid out the point morphing
principles for him on a napkin at Dairy Queen. We had just been to a
Star Trek movie (we were both Trek fans and took the afternoon off to
indulge ourselves), in which some lady interest of Captain Kirk's was
morphed (poorly) from lady to... something else. Barry was fascinated,
and I told him I already knew how to do it better (based on the ASM
engine in the above-mentioned SoftCircuits SmoothShape product) -- we
stopped at the DQ, wolfed down a couple of burgers, and I scribbled some
napkins thoroughly as I laid out my pin-surface methodology for him. He
brought ImageMaster's morphing engine to life very shortly thereafter.
We began shipping a version of ImageMaster containing this engine to
users in February of 1992.
If you're looking for image processing under Windows, I have also
made available Black Belt Systems' WinImages
software. WinImages is a system like Imagemaster, only even
larger and more capable. It also works on Intel Macs under Parallels,
VMWare Fusion, and Bootcamp. It also contains our point morphing
Imagemaster plug-in modules (3rd Party)
IM_PIMs.ADF (contains all plug-ins)
IM_PIMs.DMS (contains all plug-ins)

This was free software I wrote.
