#4247364 Cleaning and dusting off some old Atari scanned documents.

Posted by Savetz on Fri Mar 29, 2019 9:11 AM

Hi @ldelsarte

 

It's fine with me if you clean up and post documents. I'd recommend including links to the original scans, in case someone wants to see what something closer to what the original version looks like.

 

thanks for helping make these old docs more readable.

#4244377 Xformer emulator running on MacOS!

Posted by Savetz on Sun Mar 24, 2019 8:35 PM

If you (like me ) are a MacOS user who has been just a little bit jealous of the Xformer 10 emulator (which only runs on Windows) for its ability to run multiple virtual Ataris at once. . . well, I got it running on my Mac!

The trick is PlayOnMac, free software that lets you run some Windows software (without a Windows license.) It does some WINE magic, I'm not sure, but it works. https://www.playonmac.com/en/

 

Xformer isn't one of the built-in installable apps, but the "Install a non-listed program" feature worked!

 

Get Xformer 10 here: http://www.emulators...e/xformer10.zip

#4239687 Renderific, an SVG renderer

Posted by Savetz on Sun Mar 17, 2019 7:00 AM

 

I presume the noise is just to let you know something is happening during the maths calcs?

 

 

When it makes noise, it's telling you it is trying to draw offscreen. (Which is bad.) Increasing the resolution may solve the issue — or it may be an SVG file that draws in negative quadrants, which it doesn't know how to deal with.

is it licenced in a way that I can integrate it into BOSS-X?

 

 

Yes, it's licensed with the MIT license. Include credit and the license notice.

#4232074 Renderific, an SVG renderer

Posted by Savetz on Mon Mar 4, 2019 3:44 PM

Here's Renderific 1.0, a program I wrote in Turbo BASIC XL that displays SVG files on the Atari 8-bit. With a 1020 plotter, it can plot them too.

 

It's slow, it's a buggy in places, but it mostly works. This was just a fun little project.

#4219455 New Atari 8-bit scans and video

Posted by Savetz on Wed Feb 13, 2019 5:12 PM

Here's a great new scan for lovers of the 600XL:

 

Atari 600XL Product Status Meeting Handout provided by Gregg Squires is dated 1983-01-07 and includes detailed parts/cost schedules, date milestones, unresolved issues, 45 pages of goodness. ("Crazy-8" was one of the codenames for the 600XL.)

 

Interview with Gregg is forthcoming.

#4213109 New Atari 8-bit scans and video

Posted by Savetz on Mon Feb 4, 2019 7:06 PM

Pascal update:

 

Update: two people worked on Atari Pascal. Michael G. Lehman did most of the work but died last year. Wink Saville worked on the Pascal linker, but didn't know the answers to any of my questions. Wink started on a KIM-1 and later was a developer of the PCPI Applicard and one of the principals in Meridian Data where they developed CDROM publishing systems and other projects. So, certainly an interesting guy to talk to, but not with the answers about Atari Pascal and fortran.
