Software titles mentioned / re-creation of screenshots


Further, I want to dig into all the software and games titles they showcased, sometimes with a couple of seconds with captions, other times only mentioned in the speech, but also sometimes not even mentioned by captions or spoken word.

I will to the best of my abilities and know-how produce new screenshots and links to all the software and games mentioned/visible in the entire Amiga Promo video in the order it was seen (more or less).

I also noticed during the research that even if the caption said a particular software name, often the sequences before or right after would appear to be from other software, so back then, one "could" get confused what animation or graphics actually came from the titles mentioned in speech or in caption. But, it does not matter, Amiga ruled everything no matter what anyway.

From video: Analyze! by Micro-Systems Software.

There was several views used from this software in the video, this particular one they loaded "Worksheets/Graph_Sample.sht" from typically "Analyze! v2.10 (1987)(Micro-Systems)(SE)(en).adf"



Screenshot from the actual Analyze! software, where I loaded also the "Worksheet/Graph_Sample.sht".

What is wierd that when it opens up, it shows a multitude of graphical pie, charts, bars etc. like after eachother and after it was loaded I have no clue how to get them back into view.

From video: WordPerfect 4.1 by WordPerfect Corporation

Screenshots from various WordPerfect documents was used in the video, however the particular one loaded in this screenshot was not present on any of the v4.1 disks I tried, typically:
WordPerfect v4.1 (1989)(WordPerfect)(Disk 1 of 4)(WP).adf
WordPerfect v4.1 (1989)(WordPerfect)(Disk 2 of 4)(Spell.Thes).adf
WordPerfect v4.1 (1989)(WordPerfect)(Disk 3 of 4)(Learn).adf
WordPerfect v4.1 (1989)(WordPerfect)(Disk 4 of 4)(Print).adf

Fun trivia: V4.1 was released in 1989, while the video was made in 1987, one had to wait 2 years before it hit the streets apparently :-)




Screenshot from the actual WordPerfect v4.1 software.

In this screenshot I simply loaded "PS.TS" from disk 3, typically:
WordPerfect v4.1 (1989)(WordPerfect)(Disk 3 of 4)(Learn).adf



From video: B.E.S.T. Business Management by Business Electronics Software & Technology Inc.

This particular screenshot is from the first main screen that pops up when software is loaded.

Fun trivia: Note the date says 09/10/87 which stands for 10th of September 1987. Was that when they filmed most of the sequences, during that time period in 1987?



Screenshot of the actual B.E.S.T Business Management software where I just booted the program and naturally entered the same date as the video, just for pure real deal fun :-)

Disk booted was:
BEST business management.adf



From video: B.E.S.T. Business Management by Business Electronics Software & Technology Inc.

This particular screenshot is from the menu chosen as
"GENERAL LEDGER"
"CHART OF ACCOUNTS"
"ADD NEW ACCOUNTS"





Screenshot of the actual B.E.S.T Business Management software where I just entered the same menu as the video, and typed in more or less the same amount of text, just for pure fun!



From video: Impact! by Aegis. There are several slides from Impact, and some of these are even from a "sample.shw" script located on typically "Aegis Impact! v1.0 (1986)(Aegis).adf"



Screenshot from the actual Impact! software. Here's the first slide of a file I loaded called "sample.shw", that was found on "Aegis Impact! v1.0 (1986)(Aegis).adf" disk.



From video: Impact! by Aegis. Here they loaded just a graph and showed some of the menus of the software. I was unable to find the same graphics.



Screenshot I made from the actual Impact! software. I loaded a slide called "Sales", and showed the menu.



From video: Scribble! by Micro-Systems Software.

Scribble was used several places in the video with various documents loaded.



Sreenshot from the actual Scribble! software. I used "Scribble! v2.0 (1986)(Micro-Systems).adf" disk and simply loaded "SpellCheck.doc" from that disk and executed spell checking.



From video: VIP Professional by VIP Technologies Corporation. The software was used several places in the video, but never mentioned in either speech or caption.

The simply loaded the disk "VIP Professional v1.0 (1986)(VIP Technologies Corporation)[WB].adf" and loaded something.




Screenshot from the actual VIP Professional software. I was unable to figure out to load anything, as there was no menus, only shortcuts which I didn't bother to figure out of :-)

Disk used was "VIP Professional v1.0 (1986)(VIP Technologies Corporation)[WB].adf"



From video: ProWrite by New Horizons.

They used several documents and showed ProWrite in a couple of places in the video, with various documents loaded.

Typically:
ProWrite v1.11 (1987)(New Horizons).adf



Screenshot I made from the actual ProWrite software. I simply loaded the "Sample_Documents/Memo" from "ProWrite v1.11 (1987)(New Horizons).adf" and it contains at least a Porsche :-)



From video: MaxiPlan by MaxiSoft.

They used MaxiPlan in a couple of places in the video, showing various charts, menus and documents.



Screenshot from the actual MaxiPlan software, where I loaded "db_demo" from "MaxiPlan Plus v1.9 (1987)(MaxiSoft)(Disk 2 of 2).adf" and inside the "Database Worksheets/db_demo" that shows the exact same document as used in the video.

Somehow the color scheme changed from various documents I tried loading from typically:

MaxiPlan Plus v1.9 (1987)(MaxiSoft)(Disk 1 of 2).adf
MaxiPlan Plus v1.9 (1987)(MaxiSoft)(Disk 2 of 2).adf



From video: UniCalc by Lattice.

In the video they loaded some random spreadsheet.

Trivia: Actually, there was not much traces of UniCalc by Lattice, so most likely the project was either scrapped or renamed into another title.




Screenshot from the actual UniCalc v1.10 software. I just loaded an example spreadsheet on the disk.

Disk was named and found in:
SGT (Softgallo - Italian Amiga Club)\SGT02/A01707.adf



From video: Superbase by Precision Software Ltd.

In the video they opened up "Clients" and loaded some data, typically from:

"Superbase pro v2.01 disk 1.adf"
"Superbase pro v2.01 disk 2.adf"
"Superbase pro v2.01 disk 3.adf"




Screenshot from the actual Superbase software where I also loaded "Clients" and got pretty much the same data as the one in the video.

Naturally, somebody had changed the colors of the workbench of the disks, so that differs from the video.



From video: Organize! by Micro Systems Software. In the video nothing was loaded, just showing software and Directory window.



Screenshot from the actual Organize! software. I just loaded a random file, then open up directory to view files.

Disk used: Analize Scribble Organize (Wb).adf



From video: Acquisition by Taurus.

Not sure what file they loaded.



Screenshot from the actual Acquisition software.

I was unable to load that "cheque" as shown in the video, to be honest, the software was highly confusing to work with, the disk was filled with lots of sub-programs and trying to load from DF1: was not possible.

Disk used:
Acquisition (19xx)(Taurus)(Disk 1 of 2)[cr BST][b].adf
Acquisition (19xx)(Taurus)(Disk 2 of 2)[cr BST][b].adf



From video: Microfiche Filer by Software Visions.

In one of the shots in the video they loaded "Microfiche/Pictures/picture.mff" from typically:
"Microfiche Filer v1.0 (1987)(Software Visions).adf"



Screenshot from the actual Microfiche Filer software. I simply loaded "Microfiche/Pictures/picture.mff".

Naturally the workbench I booted from had standard desktop colors, so color scheme is different than video.



From video: Diga! by Aegis.

Fun fact: The software was not mention by name or caption, and the terminal program was shown several times in the video connecting through a modem to actual BBS's listing stuff.




Screenshot from the actual Diga! software. Naturally colors are different in my screenshot and I have connected no modem so not much text to see :-)

Disk used: Diga! v1.0 (1987)(Aegis).adf



From video: Shows an 360 rotation of a Zeus head statue. This is not from any software, but rather just an animation they showed.

I found the animation of a disk called "Zeus (1987)(Tsadilas, Greg).adf" where they loaded a file called "Zeus.Anim".

Credits on the disk for the animation is as follows:
Zeus was Created By Myself,
GreG Tsadilas - GTS CIS# 73230,567
using Digi-View and DeluxePaint. A Quickie cranked out in about 4 hours.



Screenshot I made from the same animation as shown in the video. I loaded the animation from a disk called "Zeus (1987)(Tsadilas, Greg).adf" and the file called "Zeus.Anim".



From video: PrintMaster Plus by Unison World, a division of Kyocera Unison Inc.



Screenshot from the actual PrintMaster Plus software.

Disk used: Printmaster.adf



From video: PageSetter by Gold Disk Inc.

In the video they loaded "Documents/Flyer.doc".

Typically from:
"PageSetter v1.0 (1986)(Gold Disk).adf"



Screenshot from the actual PageSetter software.

I managed to load and setup the same document as shown in the video, simply by loading "Documents/flyer.doc" from
"PageSetter v1.0 (1986)(Gold Disk).adf" disk.



From video: City Desk by MicroSearch / SunRize Industries.

In the video they loaded ".demo.doc" that showed some text and included a single graphic ".demo.pic".

Typically from:
CityDesk_v1.1.adf



Screenshot from the actual CityDesk software.

I was unable to load ".demo.doc" and ".demo.pic" to re-create the same view as in the video as it seems a file is missing (project file or something).




From video: Publisher 1000 by Northeast Software Group.

In the video they create 2 frames, then loaded "TEXT/TEXT-SAMPLE.doc" and "IMAGES/LOGO.PIC" to create the article.

Typically from:
"Publisher 1000.adf"



Screenshot from the actual Publisher 1000 software.

I simply created 2 frames, then loaded "TEXT/TEXT-SAMPLE.doc" and "IMAGES/LOGO.PIC" to create the article just as seen in the video more or less:-)




From video: Textcraft Plus by ICT Cooperation.

Fun fact: Software is shown several times in the video, but it was never mentioned by speech or caption.



Screenshot from the actual Textcraft Plus software.

I just loaded "Main Document" from disk, typically from "Textcraft Plus (1987-03-25)(ICT Corporation).adf"
