RISC World


Aaron Timbrell rounds up the software directory


This issue we have another exclusive RISCWorld give away. A free copy of CardShop, as included in the APDL Celebration package. CardShop lets you design your own greetings cards (Christmas, birthday, Easter, Mother's Day etc). It provides a framework within which you can create and manipulate a card containing both pictures and text, print out and construct an envelope for the card and produce rows of 'stamps'.

CardShop offers many features, including the easy import of graphics and the automatic scaling and positioning of fonts.

The user interface is written to be accessible for the younger child, although many older children and adults also enjoy using it. Card Shop provides options for producing the finished card. A single sheet can be produced which is then folded in four to produce an A6 card. Or you can produce an A5 card - this requires the paper to be reinserted into the printer. And finally there is the option to produce a card similar in size to the cards bought in shops.

The complete DiscWorld line up

As per usual we have our collections of the latest RISC OS games and applications, as well as support files for this issue's articles:


Complete unrestricted version of CardShop, ideal for making Christmas cards.


All the games from this issue's games world column.


Iyonix software from this issue's Iyonix column.


All the latest PD, shareware and freeware releases from the PD column.

This contains two sets of Toolbox Modules. The Castle archive contains the latest 26/32 bit neutral system components, required if you want to run a lot of new software releases on 26bit machines. The RISCOS Ltd archive contains later and improved versions of a number of modules and is suitable for all versions of RISC OS from 3.1 onwards. We have also included copies of SharedUnixLib and UnixHome as these are needed by some programs.


A special RISCworld edition of the software that some people are calling WebChange2....
