Here are the BASIC programs I got around to writing - but I don't know how to copy/transfer them onto a DOS disk - so as to have them all together in the one place?
I know that with the old Xformer emulator you could do this - but that only runs on the old clunky 386s...
The only one I didn't create - is the Atari 400 pic - which was printed in one of learning to program in Atari BASIC books.
If you look at the listings I created - it is simply using the Plot and Drawto commands - and lastly the XIO fill - which takes a while to get use to.
The way I created the pics - was to use an art program which does show you the X, Y coordinates of the cursor - and record all the points necessary in creating the picture - once you get the hang of it, it is more or less straightforward to carry on until it's completion.
So you could choose any pic you like a lot and think is a good candidate to have working?
There's always stuff you can do - if you're not into drawing pictures from scratch - like adding extra colours into a pic, making it a lot better than the original? Or go about modifying a pic? Like I took the Atari 400 pic - transferred it into Graphics 7.5 and then added the 410 tape deck and carts into the pic - I've forgotten how I did it? (In not having to draw the Atari 400 -- did I simply just change the graphics mode of the program? or what?)
With this 800XL pic - I didn't draw it - hence the credit to MW (Martin Walker?) but added the Atari Touch Tablet to it. Didn't think I could draw a better 800XL - but managed to draw the 800, and 130XE alright.
This disk has all the Atari hardware pics I have drawn ... that is with an art program.
Maybe someone else might want to take on the task of converting some of these pics into self drawing programs? Maybe not...
