Angry Umm, I hate AMOS! Can U quit to WB?

Hey guys and gals, Umm, no offense to anyone, but I really feel that AMOS is a pain in the ass...just slightly more system-friendly than an HE grenade...
So, there is some odd key combo to switch to WB when AMOS is running, but what is it? Can a running AMOS game/whatever be quit to WB?

And ALL for a rather average little 'H.E.R.O' clone + level editor I found!


For that matter, anyone have links to Docs for AMOS, and Pro? *I have Pro somewhere here......

As well you can press CTRL+C to break a running program, unless the program has run the line "Break Off" which will disable this. If you need help on Amos you can also check the Amos Factory on http://amos.ultimateamiga.co.uk/

Amiga + A is for multitasking IIRC.

It's also one way of checking whether a particular program was written in AMOS, a surprising number of them are...

I found out that Valhalla was made in AMOSPro, as i removed the disk and then it needed to load some data came up with a flipping AMOS file requester... now thats just lazy

Yep...although some of the PD games made with AMOS are OK, all those Vulcan games are absolutely awful, I can't believe the magazines gave them good reviews...

I really liked the Valhalla series. They had great atmosphere and the full voice acting was impressive at the time. Not all of Vulcan's games were as well received, though. (CU Amiga rated Burnout 43%)
