Also, following consultation with many of their active members, they have decided to drop the membership listing and therefore end their user group status. This way they can concentrate on AtariPhile and 42BBS. They will not change their name, the FFF will act like a publishing house.
They will continue to publish AtariPhile and run 42BBS for some time to come.

Version 4 offers greater support for colour printers and can import, among other things, the popular GIF file format. The program has been re-written in C and should therefore be faster (the original, believe it or not, was written in GFA Basic!).
For more information see our preview in issue 1 or call HiSoft.
The Atari Authors Association has dropped the review scheme, they will continue to offer support to new and non-UK Atari programmers. For more information see the AAA page in this issue.
Croft Soft is also investigating the possibility of an internet page, more news on this next issue.
Frank Charlton has taken over from Andy Curtis in the running of the board. If you are looking for an Atari BBS make sure you check out our contact section.
First up we have Destruction Imminent from Goodmans International. DI is a Doom clone for the ST/STE and it features texture mapped 3D graphics, sampled sound and digitized music. The game is due for release on 28th September at the September Atari shows. For more information and screen shots have a look at our preview this issue.
Secondly is Tony Greenwoods Heartland, a platform game for the ST/STE. Featuring cute well drawn graphics and a well designed map, this game could reshape the future of ST platformers. Heartland is also due for release on September 28th but it can be picked up off the Internet and some Bulletin Boards now. Check out our review this issue.
This month will also hopefully see the release of Croft Softs latest game, Mole Mayhem, see the Croft Soft Information page for more details. A three level demo is available from 42BBS or by sending a blank disk and SAE to Croft Soft Software.
