Hollywood 4.7 now available

Postby softwarefailure » Fri Apr 23, 2010 3:10 pm


Airsoft Softwair is proud to annouce that the coolest multimedia application on the Amiga planet is now available in a brand-new version. Hollywood 4.7 is another quality release brought to you by Airsoft Softwair and contains some cool new features as well as bug fixes and fulfillments of some user wishes. The biggest new feature in Hollywood 4.7 is certainly the new completely platform independent font backend (which means that TrueType text will now look exactly, pixel-perfectly the same on every system) as well as support for Unicode UTF-8 based text rendering. But there are other cool new features like support for embedded icons when compiling Windows and Mac OS X executables.

Here is a list of changes in Hollywood 4.7:

* Completely platform independent font backend
* Support for UTF-8 based text rendering (Unicode)
* Icons can be compiled into Windows and Mac OS X executables
* Extended layer functionality
* New inbuilt system fonts (sans, monospace, serif)
* Support for multiple joysticks also on Win32 and Mac OS X
* New TextureScroll example
* Various other new features and bug fixes

Although a lot of work went into this update, Airsoft Softwair decided to make Hollywood 4.7 available free of charge as a special gift for our loyal customers. The 4.7 update is available as a direct download (30 megabytes) in both Amiga and Windows versions for all customers of Hollywood 4.5. Please visit the Airsoft Softwair homepage for the download link of this freegrade.

In case you do not own Hollywood yet, you can place your order here and thus support future development of highly professional Amiga software. Thanks in advance!

Re: Hollywood 4.7 now available - Problem

Postby amigaoneproductions » Fri Apr 23, 2010 5:08 pm

I am having problems with the Amiga OS4 Version of the upgrade.

I have V4.5 installed, and running the Update4_7 tool gives me an error dialog:

Hollywood Player:
Cannot open pngalpha.library !
File: updatetool.hws (current line: 5 - in function: LoadSprite)

Am I missing something ?

OK, Solved it, a hunt around the good old aminet found me the library, could not find it at first, but the following link may be of some use if anyone has the same problem as me:


Just copy the files found in the libs folder to your libs and all should be well :-)
