√2·1Notes From The Editor

·4Holy Shit, PAW '93  #11...Already!?  Yep 
we're back again, on time  and  ready to 
stay that way  so stay  tuned for one or
even two more issues  to  help  you  get 
through the  Christmas  Rush.  Why down-
load 30 or 40 ZIPs with the same ads and
generators  from  those  other  "leading 
brands" when  you've  got PAW Mini's and
comprehensive PAW Mags to deal with??

Oh,  to  start things  off,  we got  our
first  ORIGINAL PAW  musical score here.
This first  of  many  I hope - no  more
canabalizing .MOD collections for us!!

Now that I've blown our collective horn,
I'll  let you in  on our  little  secret 
weapon that is destined to revolutional-
ize the PAW way of  life.  Phoenix,  our
lead  programmer, has  developed  a  PAW 
Engine!!  "Huh?" say the masses...

Up until this very issue, the process of
building a PAW VGA release was more than
a little drawn  out.  In addition to the
grabbing and reviewing of every  game we
encountered,  the  clicking  of   screen 
shots   and  my  editing  of  all  those 
reviews, there was  also the ardous task 
of compiling the  issue which, depending
on wind  conditions, took  anywhere from
a few hours to a few days  for  the poor
programmer.  No longer.  The PAW  Engine
automates  the  process and  builds  the 
needed files in a matter of minutes!!

Please  note that this has resulted in a
number of additional  files shipped with 
the mag which we are going to cut  down.
No increase in size really, but it looks
so damn messy ;).  On the other hand, we
have freed  some memory space so,  hope-
fully, bigger .MODs will play...

Thus, hats  off to Phoenix...  Now, free 
of  compilation woes  (well, we  haven't 
tested this  yet), look for many new and
exciting features to the mag program it-
self.  After only a year and three  lead
programmers,  we've got  all the  basics 
covered  - onwards  and  upwards one and 
all...

Oh, and my  personal greets and congrats
to the new boys in PTG. Helluva a couple
weeks so keep it up...  Actually, it was
a helluva a couple weeks all around!!

√2·1Programmer's Note

·4Guess what! No new (visible) changes  to
the  mag.   There   have   been  massive
internal   modifications   though.   And
because of these you'll most  likely see
PAW   actually  keep  to   a  bi-monthly
schedule.  There  will   also   be  more
visible  additions to  the magazine over
the next few issues as well. By 1994 PAW
will be at peak performance.

Also,  on an unrelated  note, I'd (we'd)
really like to hear some feedback  about
PAW. All  the  members can be  contacted
through  PAWNet,  so  if  you  have  any
compliments,  comments   or   criticisms
about PAW please let us know.

√2·1PAW Reviewing Policy

·41.  The  main  purpose  of  the  Pirates
Analyze  Warez  Review  is   to  provide
usable  review information on  all games
released by all  groups and available in
the   pirate   world.  Issues   will  be
released every second Sunday after  that 
with each magazine covering the two week 
period  ending  on  the  Friday   before 
release.  Hopefully,  we will,  in  most
cases, be able to stick to schedule.

2.   Reviews   will   NOT,  however,  be
included on the following release types:
  a)  Foreign Language Releases - as our
      entire   staff  is   made  up   of
      unilingual   anglophones,   it  is
      impossible to do an effective  job
      reviewing a foreign release. Games
      of  this nature will  be listed in 
      the "Wares In This Issue" list and
      in an "Editor's  Notes" review  so 
      that the  size of  the release  is 
      counted.
  b)  Add-Ons  and  Updates   -   it  is
      assumed  that potential  users  of
      such releases are already familiar
      with   the   original   games   in
      question thus  rendering  singular
      reviews  unnecessary.  As such, we
      will simply list the review in the
      "Warez In This Issue" list and add
      an  "Editor's Note" review so that
      the size of the file is counted,
  c)  DEMOs - while  game demos  have  a 
      place in the pirate world, they do
      NOT have a  node in  the reviewing 
      forum.  As such, we will only list
      such  releases  in the  "Warez  In 
      This Issue" listing. No size score
      for a DEMO release will  be  given 
      to the releasing group.
  c)  Repacks - quite  simply, game  re-
      releases will NOT be  reviewed  as
      we  wish  to stay on  the "cutting
      edge" and not simply rehash  older
      games.  This   releases   will  be 
      listed  in   the   "Warez In  This 
      Issue" list and  as  an  "Editor's 
      Notes" review so that a minus five
      penalty  can  be  awarded  to  the 
      releasing group.

3.   PAW  also  intends   to  score  all
releases   on  the  basis  of  size  and
quality   (see   PAW    Scoring   System
article).  A definite  system will be in
place by Issue '94 #01.

- PAW Review Magazine Staff
·1√2PAW Quality Scoring Revision II

·4Each release will be scored based on the
two  categories listed below. The  total
points  will  be cumulated  for  ongoing
rankings of the Groups.

1.  QUALITY - Theory:  All  warez should
be worth the time  and energy  needed to
download them.  This means that  typical
standards  such  as  sound  and graphics
quality should be upheld.  It also means
that   well-anticipated   games  are  of
inherently higher quality and that,  for
most, re-releases are not...

0 -  +5 - Graphics Quality
 0 - +5 - Sound Quality
 0 - +5 - Playability
 0 - +5 - Originality
 0 - +5 - Anticipation Level
-1 - -5 - educational/ancient/lame
-1 - -5 - duplicate of earlier release
          (ie - unchanged US vs UK)
-1 - -5 - dysfunctional/non-working

2.  SIZE - Theory:  As the  Warez Report
once  scored it, this is the ONLY  comp-
onent  of  group  rankings  rather  than 
simply a part.  Still,  one  must recog-
nize the effort and organization  needed
to courier and  effectively  move larger
releases and include it in a score.

+ 1 - Per 500,000 bytes.


Under  this  incarnation of the scoreing
policy, a "perfect" game would get fives
for  Graphics,  Sound,  Originality  and
Playability (shown in the  actual review
on a scale of one to ten), an additional
five for Anticipation PLUS a  point  for
every  500,000  bytes of size.  Needless 
to say it would not suffer penalties.

Note also  that we intend to remain non-
partisan in the case of  multiple groups
releasing the same  game.  It is not our
place to judge the micro-second and make
a winner  or  loser.  Only  in  cases of 
blatant  double or triple releasing will
a penalty be given.  

It  is, however, possible to  award  the 
groups that crack and uncracked  release
bonus scoring for their efforts.


I  expect the  PAW Scoring Policy  to be 
completely evolved by Issue '94 #01.

·1√2PAW Disclaimer

·4The purpose of the Pirates Analyze Warez
(PAW) Magazine is to provide the  reader 
with usable reviews of new entertainment 
software  releases  in a  timely manner.  
This  information  is intended  to allow 
the  user   to  make  a  more   informed 
purchase    decision   when    used   in  
conjunction    with   other    reviewing 
sources.  The members of PAW Magazine do 
NOT  condone piracy  in any form.  Quite  
simply, if  you  think  the  software is  
worth getting, pay for it.

All  software  reviewed  in PAW Magazine 
is,  admittedly,  obtained through less-
than-legal sources. However, immediately  
following  review, each software release 
is  deleted  and,  if  further  play  is
desired,  purchased.  This  pre-purchase
trial of the software is not unlike that
available  through any software  lending 
group.

Again,  PAW Magazine  does not,  in  any 
way,  condone  or  endorse  the  illegal 
obtaining   and/or  use  of   commercial  
software.   The  Magazine  is  a   fully 
public domain release of review material  
created to benefit both  the end-user of 
the  software  and,   in  the  end,  the 
publishers themselves.
