ST NEWS Volume 3 Issue 5
Released on Sunday, October 16th 1988
Dedicated to J.R.R. Tolkien

Hi folks!
 After yet another chaotic day of ST NEWSing, we have again
succeeded in bringing it to you. OK, we were too late. But the
excuses therefore can be found in just about every article in
this ST NEWS issue!
 On the disk, you should find the following files in the
PROGRAMS folder:
 PATCH.GFA               A Patch for GfA 3.0 that fixes the bugs
 WIZARDS.S               A source file for smooth horizontal
                          scrolling, written by TEX
 SCROLL.BAS              A GfA 2.0 source for smooth horizontal
                          text scrolling
 ARKA_II.LST             An ASCII saved file for GfA Basic. It's
                          an "Arkanoid II" trainer maker/unmaker
 This disk can be copied using Acopy unprotected or Fcopy unprotected.
Its disk format is 80 tracks (0-79) with 10 sectors per track, single
sided. Copying it file by file can be done by dragging the whole drive
icon symbol on an open window where you want to have it (this will also
copy the hidden files and stuff).
 This copy of ST NEWS as well as all issues belonging to Volume 3 are
copyrighted by ST Club Eindhoven in Holland. If you want to sell it in
a COMMERCIAL PD library, you need to contact us or ST Club Eindhoven
for royalty arrangements (about 1 guilder per sold copy).
 We wish you lots of fun reading this issue, which is dedicated to the
memory of J.R.R. Tolkien - master of Fantasy Fiction.

The text of the articles is identical to the originals like they appeared in old ST NEWS issues. Please take into consideration that the author(s) was (were) a lot younger and less responsible back then. So bad jokes, bad English, youthful arrogance, insults, bravura, over-crediting and tastelessness should be taken with at least a grain of salt. Any contact and/or payment information, as well as deadlines/release dates of any kind should be regarded as outdated. Due to the fact that these pages are not actually contained in an Atari executable here, references to scroll texts, featured demo screens and hidden articles may also be irrelevant.
