  1. This would stress the EPSON FX emulator some more: That post prompted me to ask C.B. if we could screen dump the color pixel data instead of ESC/P dot graphics - he wrote the GRANTIC screen dump. The Okimate is getting there ... i'll have something soon for printing with its COLOR print utility.
  2. GRANTIC source code by @ClausB Use with the GRANTIC P: emulator GRANTIC.SRC.txt
  3. Got it - Firefox opens it. It's curious how all the different readers handle errors. I need to track down what Acrobat doesn't like in that file. Thanks!
  4. @ClausB==Dr. Seuss! He sent me his source code to post, too. I should get that out there. See this post for instructions and a demo ATR:
  5. Thanks for stressing the emulator! The EPSON FX emulator sets the first line to print on the bottom of the previous page. I had to do this to make The Print Shop output OK. A work around is to execute a linefeed right before printing. I could make another instance of the emulator that starts at the top of the page as expected - that might be easiest for everyone. P.S. I could not open the DDIIDOC1.pdf file.
  6. This is amazing. I can't believe the emulator did this! Can you attach the SVG file? I'd love to see what it output.
  7. oh shoot - use Internet Explorer it surprisingly works. Ugh. There's an updated file in IDF that the Arduino framework hasn't picked up yet. @jamm says to ... "try replacing the file <your_user_profile>.platformio\packages\framework-arduinoespressif32\tools\sdk\lib\libesp_http_server.a with the one attached here. Make a backup of the existing file, of course." libesp_http_server.a
  8. Here's instructions on installing VSCode and PlatformIO so you can get the firmware and upload to a dev board. https://github.com/FujiNetWIFI/atariwifi/wiki/Board-Bring-up-for-PLATFORM.IO-code The firmware should run without an SD card. You might run out of SPIFFS space if you print a large file. But it's worth a shot!
  9. FujiNet now has the ability to do screen captures to PNG when used with a version of @ClausB's PRANTIC. Claus wrote a new version called GRANTIC that sends the 8-bit color data to P: and from that FujiNet builds a 320x192 pixel PNG. Thank-you Claus! This is a neat capability. Instructions for those following along with their own devices: Mount the attached grantic.ATR, which is a DOS 2.5 boot disk with GRANTIC loading in AUTORUN.SYS. Boot this to BASIC. From a browser navigate to your FujiNet's IP (homepage). Select the "GRANTIC" printer emulator from the drop down list. There are two simple demo programs (GR2.BAS and GR3.BAS) on the ATR. Run either of those. When you no longer hear SIO traffic buzz, download the printout from the browser. The magic happens with a call to USR(8192). Sample output: grantic.atr
  10. Sorry about that! We need to make a simple web interface to allow switching printers. Change line 162 in main.cpp to sioP.connect_printer(new(atari1027));
  11. For some more background there is a 1985 Scientific American "Computer Recreations" article on the math for Mandlebrot sets.
  12. Sorry for the necropost and I may have missed it but did you publish your 825 printer font?
  13. @playsoft Paul, I'd like to get the emulator behavior right. Right now, I send all SIO 'W' data to text and 'P' data to graphics. Should I be using the Aux1 instead sending 'N' to text and 'L' to graphics? Or is it a combination of command and aux1? Thanks Jeff
  14. Thank-you for the information and disassembling and commenting the example code from the user's manual. I was just guessing at how this worked by watching SIO traffic. Good to have the confirmation based on the example program. Jeff
  15. @ClausB I was thinking of - PRANTIC 6502 code captures graphics and sends over SIO in some format. - ESP32 receives over SIO and converts graphics into a color PNG much like an emulator screen capture. I don't know if this is an appropriate use of the PRANTIC emulation of ANTIC and GTIA. -Jeff
