STRAPPING ON THE UTILITY BELT

If it seems like we went a little overboard with Windows utilities
this month, well, we did. So if your digital tool belt feels a little
light, stock up on tools here. Check out the New Releases and New
Versions sections for the latest, best Windows performance gadgets.

This month we covered everything from Program Manager replacements to
a cool .SCR Windows screen blanker. What else can I say about utilities?
Not much. Thinking about utilities makes me want to shut up and go
optimize my hard disk. So, I think I will.

Don't forget to wear safety goggles, always keep the blade guard
engaged, and enjoy this month's selection.

Psst! If anyone feels the urge to giggle at my Near StartUp tip in
the SOLUTIONS section, I challenge you to put all these utilities in
YOUR Windows StartUp group and keep all individual bells and whistles
straight!

<> FONTER v6.2 <>
Look at Fonts Before They're Installed!

Less than a decade ago fonts were high-ticket items: you could easily
spend $50 or more for a good set of Times Roman and Helvetica clones.
Today you can buy a CD-ROM disc of 2000 fonts for under $10. Bargain
font collections abound. So many fonts, so little hard-disk space! The
question everybody's asking now is, "How can I tell whether I like any
of these fonts without having to go through the rigmarole of installing
ALL of them?" If you're using Fonter v6.2, a welcome update to a
versatile Windows 3.1 font utility, the answer is simple: "Just preview
them!"

Yes, in Version 6.2, Fonter adds the ability to preview -- and even
print specimen sheets -- of fonts that aren't installed yet on your
system. Just click on the Preview button and double-click to choose a
bare .TTF file, and you can see how it'll look before it's installed and
eating system resources. Fonter even gives you the option of temporarily
installing a font, so it'll be good for just your current Windows
session, and then remove itself.

Fonter remains one of the best utilities for viewing and printing
samples of installed fonts, too. You can print a sample sheet of a
single font, which shows sample text formatted in various point sizes,
along with extended characters -- or you can click on File/Print Book
[All Fonts], go to bed, and wake up in the morning to a ream of font
samples.

One of my favorite Fonter features is the ability to type my own
sample text for onscreen viewing at various point sizes. That makes it a
piece of cake to audition fonts for titles on crucial page layouts. I
also like it that Fonter can map characters onto a graphic of a
keyboard, and then let you print it. This helps if you're trying to type
in foreign language characters, like Cyrillic or Hebrew -- you'll never
let that printed keyboard reference out of your sight!

<> HERETIC: CITY OF THE DAMNED <>
If DOOM Were Reincarnated as a Fantasy Adventure Game . . .

Let's see. If DOOM were a fantasy adventure game, I bet that instead
of shooting aliens with shotguns, our hero would blast demon creatures
with a magic wand. And I bet that instead of searching for ammo packs,
he would seek out magic talismans and charms.

What do you know?! That's exactly what happens in Heretic, a 3-D
virtual-reality, combat-type game (in the vein of Wolfenstein 3-D and
DOOM). Heretic is in fact from id Software, creator of DOOM, and Raven
Software. If you've played DOOM, then you know all you need to know to
play Heretic: blast the creatures, test the walls for hidden doors, grab
all the loot you can find, look for more powerful weapons (like the
ethereal crossbow -- much more lethal than the wand), and restock your
weapon supply (you never have all the ethereal arrows you'd like!).

The setting is pure gothic with its dark, dank dungeons, monolithic
rock formations and pools of dark liquid. The cast of enemies fits right
in. There are red "bat demons," mummy creatures and other evil things.
The bat demons have a neat trick. They can hover near the ceiling and
pound you good. If they're hovering directly overhead, you can't see
them, but you can usually run away a bit, turn around, and shoot them
down. They explode very satisfyingly. Like DOOM, Heretic offers
interesting architectural touches, such as angled passageways, narrow
stairways and ramps.

I found some aspects of game play more difficult in Heretic than in
DOOM. In certain rooms there appear to be hair triggers that raise the
walls to reveal a horde of enemies -- who quickly overpower you. You
think you're alone, and then pow! This happens a lot.

Heretic is even bigger than DOOM, taking up about 2.88MB of disk
space -- compressed. We at Software Shopper have not figured out how to
split up the files yet (I don't think we'd want to try). But if you're
on a BBS -- and you have to be to read this! -- then finding Heretic
will be a piece of cake. Just look for the DOS game with the highest
recent download count.

A number of auxiliary programs come with Heretic. DM.EXE, the
DeathManager, is used as a front end for network and modem play with
Heretic and DOOM. DWANGO.EXE is client software for a multiplayer online
service (call up any time to play DeathMatches in DOOM or Heretic
against people from around the world) -- you'll need a credit card for
billing if you try DWANGO. IPXSETUP.EXE lets you play Heretic and DOOM
over an IPX network. And SERSETUP.EXE lets you play over a modem or
serial cable.

The system requirements have gotten stiffer. Heretic calls for a
33MHz 486 or better CPU, 4MB of RAM, and about 10MB of hard-disk space.
It costs $40 to register and receive new levels.

Heretic is a blast from the past in more ways than one, but I can't
help but love it. I love all violent 3-D, VR, combat-style games equally
(though the bloodier, the better). It's something my therapist and I are
working on. I WISH he would stop trouncing me in DeathMatches, though.

<> MUSIC SCULPTOR FOR WINDOWS V1.4 <>
Point-and-Click Composer

Music Sculptor is the most fun I've had with my sound card in a long
time. Have you ever had a little ditty running around in your head that
you think would make a great song, and you want to record it? But you
can't figure out those complicated MIDI sequencers? And you'd feel silly
humming into a tape recorder? Music Sculptor, from Alpha Omega Software,
is a MIDI sequencer you can live with.

Music Sculptor draws a portion of the piano keyboard onscreen and
invites you to click out some notes with your mouse. Once you've got
your ditty down, you can click on the Record button to save it for
posterity as a .MID file. Or, if you're like me and you can't resist,
you can play with the music and add extra layers of sound (tracks, that
is, to us sonically savvy folk), trying to insert a little harmony.

Besides the piano view, there's a track view, and you can have both
views onscreen at the same time. For each track you can select which
instrument you'd like to play the notes. (This is where I had most of my
fun! It's neat to have your melody and bass lines swap instrument
assignments, just to hear what happens.) Here you can also instruct
certain tracks to play or be silent while you're recording new tracks.
Before you know it, you'll have clicked yourself into a symphony (or,
perhaps, a cacophony <G>).

Sample MIDI files are included, and they're modifiable, of course --
which means you'll get your chance to try and improve upon them. I wish
the program had included the ability to print scores of the music in
musical notation, but I probably wish for too much. Music Sculptor makes
a great first program for the budding composer. It requires a Windows
3.1-supported sound card.

<> SMILERSHELL V2.0 <>
A Handy Command Line for Windows

You can take the girl out of DOS, but you can't take the DOS out of
the girl.

Sometimes Windows is too much. Sometimes you just plain miss the old
DOS prompt! Say you want to check the time/date stamp of a file over in
some subdirectory. Do you really want to wait on File Manager to load
and then do all the clicking required to get to see the file
particulars? No! Who would? Shelling out to DOS and typing a simple DIR
command is much faster. But SmilerShell from Bardon Data Systems has an
even faster solution for situations like these: it brings the command
line to Windows!

If you add SmilerShell's icon to Windows' StartUp group, it'll be
ready and waiting to carry out your typed commands. The small, three-
line window can be set to stay on top, or act like any other window (and
be fetched by the Task Manager or a quick ALT-TAB). The top "line"
consists of the title bar, as you'd expect of any Windows application.
But SmilerShell adds a neat touch by giving you the option of displaying
the time there. The bottom line is the prompt line, and the middle line
is for the menu options.

If you're thinking menu options would be out of place in a program
whose job is to replace the DOS prompt, think again! We found a terrific
use for SmilerShell's Edit/Paste command. When we write about DOS tips
and tricks for PCM Online, this is how we go about it: we type the
command in a Word for Windows file as we're writing the article, then we
shell out to DOS (to test), type the command, jump back into Word to
verify we typed it exactly as it appears, jump back to DOS and execute
the command. That's a lot of wasted time when you consider SmilerShell
lets you do this: select and copy the command from Word, jump over to
SmilerShell and do an Edit/Paste, then press ENTER to execute the
command.

SmilerShell offers many other ways to speed up keyboard operations.
It keeps a command history of all your typed commands, so you can re-
execute them without retyping them. It also supports aliases, which
means you can just type "d" and have SmilerShell know you mean "dir."
(You can also configure the F2 through F12 keys as aliases.) SmilerShell
includes a fast directory change command, which works over multiple
drives, and can take you instantly to a subdirectory many levels deep.
And SmilerShell lets you launch both DOS and Windows programs just by
typing their filenames at the prompt! So now DOS touch-typist junkies
can merely type SOL instead of CLICK on an ICON (yecch! <G>) to play
their favorite Windows game.

<> SUPERBAR v2.0B <>
Add Custom Toolbars to Windows Applications

You know what the problem with Windows Write is -- besides the lack
of a spelling checker? It's square, man. There are no jazzy icons to
click. Bor-ing. Ever wish there were a way to add toolbars to Windows
programs that lack them (or even add new special-purpose toolbars above
and beyond existing toolbars)? Your wish is granted in SuperBar, a
shareware utility you can use to create custom, configurable toolbars.

The buttons on a SuperBar toolbar can be assigned to an application
menu command -- or to a recorded macro. SuperBar has its own macro
definition feature, which is great for automating tasks in programs that
lack macro capability.

I used SuperBar to jazz up Windows Write with the expected File New,
File Open and Print buttons, but I also created buttons to bring up the
Fonts dialog box and to set justification. The toolbar appeared between
the title bar and the menu bar, pushing the menu bar down a line. (The
default toolbar position is at the top, below the title bar, though you
can assign it to the left, right or bottom of the application's window.)
The toolbars remain in effect as long as SuperBar is running. So you can
load and exit Windows Write all day, and that toolbar will stick tight
(as long is SuperBar is running too). If you want to ensure your
toolbars are always available, consider plopping SuperBar's icon in
Windows' StartUp group.

Toolbar button setup is taken care of inside SuperBar. To create a
toolbar for an application, select that application from SuperBar's task
list (the application must currently be open). SuperBar displays all the
application's available menu options, and you choose which ones you
would like to turn into buttons. Then you assign an icon to each button.
If you can't find a suitable icon from the 80+ icon samples, you can use
the provided icon manager program to create and paint your own.

Custom toolbars not only increase efficiency by placing common
commands on a toolbar for point-and-click ease -- they also speed
learning. It's much easier to train new users to click on graphical
toolbar buttons than to dig through menus. Say the new worker at the
office can't seem to remember the name of File X, and then forgets how
to prep it -- just create a toolbar button that runs a macro to call up
File X, do the formatting, and print the prized report, all in one step!

SuperBar is one program I'm glad to have in my utility belt.

make multiple copies of the original disk. You can: read a
floppy disk once and then make multiple copies; save images
to a hard drive; convert disk image formats while
preserving boot and reserve sectors; create distribution
disks with group restores; and browse diskettes and saved
images. It costs $20 to register for home use; $30 for

endlessly. This program is great for running displays and
for impressing friends with your graphics collection.
(Pssst! If all your images are in another format, say .GIF

zip files, tag them in the file manager, then drag them to
the zipper icon. To view the contents of a .ZIP archive,
double-click on a .ZIP file in the file manager. From the
.ZIP file viewer you can tag files for extraction or
deletion. Double-click on any file in the listing and it is
temporarily extracted and run along with its associated
program. You can even have the program test for viruses as
it unzips a .ZIP file (you must already have a virus
scanner).

drop-down menus; the vertical spacing between icons; and
more. It also includes an .INI file editor and CD Add-In,
which allows you to add any program you want to the Control
Panel dialog.
Requires: Windows 3.1
SS ID#: DE9215 SS Dist. Cost: $6 Author's Fee: $ 12.50

Plug-In for Windows v2.11
Fills in gaps in the Windows GUI
Plug-In Manager is designed to fill in Windows' "holes"
with a variety of interface enhancements. Its most
important talent is letting you create nested groups in
Program Manager: yes, now you can put groups within groups
-- as many DOS menuing utilities let you do. It's an
intuitive way to organize applications for both beginners
and pros, and it's neater. Other handy things Plug-In
Manager does is let you decorate Windows' title bars with
the time, date, a stopwatch and a resource watchdog (to
keep an eye on your free drive space, for example). You can
also set alarms and change the look of your mouse cursor.
Another important feature is the "Power Button": a
Task-Manager-like tool that helps you quickly get where you
want to go (the button is located conveniently at the left
on the title bar of the active application).
Requires: Windows 3.1
SS ID#: HD0049 SS Dist. Cost: $8 Author's Fee: $ 20.00

SmilerShell v2.0
Stop shelling out to DOS!
Tired of shelling out to DOS to perform the simple but
important file-management tasks that DOS does so well and
Windows still does so poorly? Try SmilerShell: it's like a
DOS command line in Windows, but even more powerful! It
lets you run Windows programs, DOS programs and even DOS
internal commands. It gives you a fast directory change
command (over multiple drives). Plus, it gives you aliases;
does pipes and redirection; and offers a built-in
command-line editor with history and search. ASP member.

time), and there is no limit on the size of the text files!
As you might hope in a Windows program, you can choose your

you can point and click to perform common tasks. You can

What Is Shareware?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

WHAT IS SHAREWARE?
HOW DOES IT WORK?

Shareware operates on the "try before you buy" system. Authors allow
their programs to be copied and passed around, among friends, over BBS
systems or through services such as Software Shopper.

If you find a shareware program is of value to you and you intend to
keep and use it, then you must register the program with the author (pay
a fee -- the amount varies). Registration gives you various benefits,
depending on the author. (Common benefits include printed manuals, newer
versions and support if you happen to run into problems.) The fee also
helps motivate authors to improve their programs and develop new ones.

No part of the money collected by Software Shopper, or any other
service, goes to the program authors. Those charges are strictly
copying, handling and shipping fees, and they are non-refundable. The
author gets paid only when you send in your registration fee. We supply
all copies of shareware programs on both 5-1/4- and 3-1/2- inch disks,
although there is an extra charge of 75 cents per disk for 3-1/2-inch
(720K) format. There is no extra charge for 3-1/2-inch 1.44MB (high-
density disks).

Programs are separated into subdirectories on a disk when we make up
special orders for you (most of our orders are special orders). A short
instruction sheet is packaged with the disk, but your disk label tells
you the name of the subdirectories.

Generally, our orders are processed within 24 business hours of
receipt. Due to volume, we may run a day or so behind from time to time.
Our business hours are generally 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through
Friday.

We disclaim any damage that any of the software in Software Shopper
may cause and cannot guarantee that any particular system follows sound
business practices. Our sole liability, in any event, consists of a
refund of the copying and distribution charge we make for providing
software to you.

We invite and solicit your comments and suggestions about Software
Shopper and the shareware which we make available through it. Our
shareware library contains many more programs than appears in this issue
of Software Shopper. If you have a specific need, please contact us on
our Customer Assistance line, (502) 228-4492. We will do everything we
can to try to help.


Falsoft, Inc. is an approved vendor and associate member of the
Association of Shareware Professionals (ASP). ASP wants to make sure
that the shareware principle works for you. If you are unable to resolve
a shareware-related problem with an ASP member by contacting the member
directly, ASP may be able to help. The ASP Ombudsman can help you
resolve a dispute or problem with an ASP member, but does not provide
technical support for members' products. Please write to the ASP
Ombudsman at 545 Graver Road, Muskeg, MI 49442, or send a CompuServe
message via CompuServe Mail to ASP Ombudsman 70007, 3536.

-=------------- -=*=- -=*=- -=*=- -------------=-

About the Catalog
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The rest of Software Shopper Online is our database or "catalog" --
the majority of the shareware programs in our archives, which are
neither new nor updated this month. While you'll see more than a
thousand programs listed in the database, please keep in mind that more
is coming! We're still in the process of converting records, so future
issues will be more complete. If your favorite shareware title is
missing from the database now, it will probably soon be added.

Also, a note about how the database is structured. There really is a
method to the madness! We divided the database into 32 sections (usually
32): 16 broad categories for DOS and the same 16 broad categories for
Windows. (Categories include Business, Education, Games, Utilities,
etc.) Each rather generic category is in turn broken down into smaller
subcategories -- for example, "Business" is broken down into Accounting,
Contact Management, Personal Finance and others.

When you read the database, it will look like each category starts
out nicely in alphabetical order -- but then does several A-Z cycles!
The reason for this is that the subcategories are also in alphabetical
order. Yes, we COULD have separated the database into distinct
subcategory files, but your SysOps would have wanted to murder us for
making them deal with hundreds of files instead of the slightly unwieldy
32! As long as you know the subcategory structure is there, you should
have no trouble finding the kinds of programs you're interested in.

We do not have registration fee information available for all titles,
so for those "Author's fee" fields that show a fee of "0.00," please do
not assume that registration is free!


>>[ An Invitation to Shareware Authors ]<<

Shareware authors: we invite you to monitor our catalog to help keep
us up-to-date with your titles. Although we receive the ASP Advantage
CD-ROM and get disks sent to us by shareware authors, we don't get
everything we'd like -- so we turn to BBSs and online services for files
we're missing (and of course read the vendor info to make sure we're
allowed to distribute the programs we download). We'd rather that the
programs came directly from you -- and we're sure you'd prefer that too.
Feel free to send us your updates and new titles. Our mailing address
is: Software Shopper, P.O. Box 385, Prospect, KY 40059. Our shipping
address is: Software Shopper, The Falsoft Building, 9509 U.S. Highway
42, Prospect, KY 40059.

We've got to tell you about our new high-density line. Many shareware
vendors are still putting out titles on low-density floppy disks only,
but we're proud to have launched our "HD" line: which means we can
competitively distribute titles like DOOM, Raptor, GeoPublish and
NeoBook Pro on high-density disks (complete with nifty, laser-printed
labels). So, large programs don't upset us! We do request that, when you
send us large programs, you break them into chunks that would also fit
on 1.2MB floppy disks. But if you can't, that's OK -- we'll just insert
a note asking readers to order the program on 1.44MB disks only.
