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! -=------------- -=*=- -=*=- -=*=- -------------=- Shareware Reviews ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ <> FONTER v6.2 Look at Fonts Before They're Installed! <> HERETIC: THE CITY OF THE DAMNED If DOOM Were Reincarnated as a Fantasy Adventure Game . . . <> MUSIC SCULPTOR FOR WINDOWS V1.4 Point-and-Click Composer <> SMILERSHELL V2.0 A Handy Command Line for Windows <> SUPERBAR v2.0B Add Custom Toolbars to Windows Applications -=*=- <> 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! | Software Shopper Ordering Information | | Fonter v6.2 JU9232 357K $6 | -=*=- <> 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. <G> -=*=- <> 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. | Software Shopper Ordering Information | | Music Sculptor FE9516 241K $6 | -=*=- <> 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. | Software Shopper Ordering Information | | SmilerShell v2.0 NV9365 215K $6 | -=*=- <> 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. | Software Shopper Ordering Information | | SuperBar v2.0b FE9522 190K $6 | -=------------- -=*=- -=*=- -=*=- -------------=- Featured Selection ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Our pick of the best of what's new in shareware.

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).

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. -=------------- -=*=- -=*=- -=*=- -------------=- Online Order Form ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ If you would like to order shareware from Software Shopper, please capture or log the following order form to a file, then print it using a monospaced font.
