MadAngus Projects Log
« on: October 09, 2012, 01:48:43 AM »

Okay it's not a games diary, I'm leeching use of this board so I can keep track of what I'm doing and help avoid projects slipping.

I'll add brief weekly updates for the projects as I go along.


Other Todo's:
  • Research creating AMOS Pro hard drive installer which includes installation of updates (official) and extensions

Special Note: Any comments that are considered derogatory and targeted at software/book authors and their copyrights will be deleted immediately, without notice. This applies to any of my project pages/threads etc.

UA and AIAB webwork
Bits and bobs & Updated most of my project main pages.

AMOS Manuals  / AMOS Pro Resource Kit Project
Got the newsletter first Issue of volume 2 and EasyAmos Rev1 complete.
Started work on newsletter Issue 2.
AMOSPro manual missing index pages, re-scanned.

OpenOffice Index generator
Decided not to use cvs and use OpenOffice styles instead, starting writing program to parse OpenOffice styles and output XML.
Thought I'd be better document the XML schema first before I started programming, so moved on to that.

AIAB (Amiga In a box)
Continuing on last weeks work. Got the software I need to convert to LHA.

Amiga book permissions
No change.

A1200 Schematics Rework
Collecting datasheets.

dbODF, Avolution and xAMOS Docs still slipping.

Last week was one off those slow weeks, so no much to report. Mostly slogging through the AIAB file analysis checking for newer packages and continued work on the AMOS manuals.

Another one off those slow weeks, so not much to report. Got all the packages that make up AIAB, there's about 90 of them. Most of the details have been added to the spreadsheet, just need to extract various pieces of info, software licenses, copyright and a few other things from the docs. Should be another week maybe two before I release the AIAB Package Report. Then it will be onto the AIAB Installation Report.

[Edit] Done a little thread housekeeping.

AMOS Pro user guide completely typeset. Still to create command index links (forgot about them).
AMOS 3D user guide Font size has been changed and about quarter of the book has been repaginated.
Easy AMOS manual graphics have been re-sized to reduce the file size from 14Mbytes to 9Mbytes. Still to add the new graphics and compile a new PDF.

About half the schema is now documented.

AIAB (Amiga In a box)
File analysis complete (Still need to compile the report.).
Most third party packages acquired (still three or four to find).
r10.6 has been all but cleaned of the un-licensed files, need to trace one entry in the menu susyem to complete.

Bits and Bobs.

AMOS Manuals  / AMOS Pro Resource Kit Project
Completed and Released:
re-typeset the Easy AMOS Manual and added bookmarks.
re-typeset the AMOS Professional User Guide and added bookmarks (exact duplicate of the original).
AMOS Club Newsletters Volume 2 Issues 1-4, PDF

AMOS 3D user guide Font size has been changed and about quarter of the book has been repaginated.
Scrapped the repagination as the differences in page numbers is negligible and doesn't justify the work load.

This completes Phase 1 of the AMOS Manuals project.

Amiga Bookshelf
Finished scanning all pages of Ultimate AMOS by Jason Holborn.

OpenOffice Index generator
No Change.

AIAB (Amiga In a box)
Need to contact ClickTeam and see if they have a InstallMaker and PatchMaker decompiler.
Just extracted the older archives files to directories so InstallMaker decompiler not needed. All archives are fixed except one menu entry in each.
A PatchMaker decompiler is relatively pointless as this does a binary patch, not a file overwrite/replacement.

I will be focusing my attention entirely on AIAB during February which will result in a new version finally being released and updated website at the end of February.

A1200 Schematics Rework
No Change.

xAMOS Docs
No Change.
