Is anyone aware of a C64-style terminal emulator app for the ST? Thanks.

I'd be tempted to post this in the 8bit BBS message thread

in the 8bit forum. Might get more responses there...

What is a c64 style terminal anyway?

Does something like Freeze Dried Terminal count? http://breakintochat...atari-emulator/

He is likely looking for something that does PETSCII in color. I won't say it doesn't exist but I'll say I've never seen it.

More appropriately, is there anything for the ST that'll do ATASCII?

 

 

They totally should've added that to TOS...it's not like it would've taken up a lot of room like that other thing they should've added [GDOS]...

Thanks. Was that out back-in-the-day?  I think I used Flash exclusively back then... Maybe even on my Falcon... Wait... ANSI Term? Hmm...

Yeah, I think it was one of my first term programs on the ST after I moved on from the A8? But I quickly moved on because most of the A8 BBSs were gone in my local area and I had mostly moved to the ST too. ANSITerm was eventually my term of choice. I want to say I used VANTerm till then. I still use ANSITerm when calling from my ST though I admit I do most of my BBS calling from the PC with SynccTerm currently. It does a great ATASCII (and PETSCII).

Meant to say, one of MY first term programs on the ST.

I still say adding ATASCII to TOS would've been a nice little touch and a tipping of the hat to the A8 fans. It's a shame they didn't do that in TOS 1.2, 1.4, etc.

Don"t know why someon hase node made a terminal emulator for the st ste range of computers that can do petscii

and do it like how 64blazer term is made for pc dos computers, use that as an example it will fit on a single

floppy easy and use the keys the sameway normale.
