Grzegorz Calkowski / The Beet Research
New version of the well-known bootpic program. The 4.00 introduces
many new features. Just take a look what SysPic can do.
SysPic 4.00 * - a star feature :-)
o is small & VERY fast! (picture decompression routines written
in optimized assembly)
o shows IFF-ILBM pictures of any size and resolution,
supports AGA modes (also HAM8)
* has a flexible script-like language which allows you to display
configurable text with hard/soft info, also with typewritter and
* can display a realtime digital clock on the displayed picture
* can fade-in picture and fade-out it to Workbench (with selectable
rate) - this works in asynchronous manner (i.e no delays) -
mouse pointer is also faded
* can play IFF-8SVX samples or Protracker modules with volume slide
synchronized to fade-out
o centers picture both horizontally & *vertically*
o centers the mouse pointer when exits
* has a very powerful random selector - an option assures that
a picture won't show twice until all pictures are shown
o forces Workbench to open behind the displayed picture so it can be
closed after whole Workbench initialization, also works with
the Directory Opus 5, the Workbench replacement
o has no problems with MCP 'PubModes' feature
* is iprefs-jump proof - sets overscan prefs before IPrefs will do it!
o picture can be displayed in a desired mode or just promoted to
o optionally blanks the pointer sprite so you won't see it when the
Workbench screen opens (it would look annoying)
* picture is automatically closed when something goes wrong with
booting - when an requester pops up on Workbench or so
o detaches from shell in an intelligent way (i.e after loading
* DOES NOT fragment the memory!!!
o has been thoroughly tested by a team of betatesters
o will be updated and supported in future
* comes from Poland :))

The program is not crippled, all features work. It only
