YAFA plugin for Hollywood

Post by softwarefailure » Sun Feb 23, 2014 1:19 pm

Airsoft Softwair is proud to present a YAFA plugin for Hollywood. This plugin allows you to load and play IFF YAFA anims (made famous by Infect's Wildfire) with Hollywood. This makes it possible for the first time to view these cool 3D animations known from many wild demo compos in the late 90s on NG Amiga, Windows, Linux, Mac OS, and Android systems without the need to use an emulator!

All known IFF YAFA features are supported including the undocumented hi- and true colour extensions introduced in Wildfire 7. Here are some highlights:

* support for planar, chunky, 15bit, and 24bit YAFA anims
* support for byte, word, and longword delta compression
* HAM6 and HAM8 modes fully supported
* anims that use a dynamic palette are supported
* support for timestamped anims
* native decompressor for XPK FAST, NUKE, and RAKE packed anims; xpkmaster.library is not necessary!
* native decompressor for StoneCracker 4.04 packed anims (used only by early Wildfire versions)


This plugin is available for free download from the official Hollywood portal. Thanks to Hollywood 5's cross-platform plugin system versions for AmigaOS3 (Classic), AmigaOS3 (FPU), AmigaOS4, MorphOS, WarpOS, AROS (Intel), Linux (PowerPC), Linux (Intel), Mac OS (PowerPC), Mac OS (Intel), Windows and Google's Android platform are provided.

You can download lots of YAFA anims from Aminet: Use this link to find them.
