  1. Hi everyone! How can I transform ALL ATASCII codes including 128-255 into screen codes in mode 1 (20x24 5 color text mode)? I am having a hard time with the ones above 127. Subtracting 128 and applying the same rules as 0-127 does not work. For the ones below 128 I have used: if(screen_code<128) { if(image->_imageData<32) { screen_code+=32; } else if(image->_imageData<96) { screen_code-=32; } } but doing the same (after subtracting 128) does not work. I need to get the write screen code with the RIGHT COLOR. Fabrizio
  2. Hi everyone. I've been working on a project I'm calling AtasciiTube. It's a HTML5/JS app to play for ATASCII animations. I'm still refining the code, but it's working pretty well so far. Check it out: http://breakintochat.com/collections/atascii. Also, I want to send out a plea to anyone who saved any ATASCII animations from years ago. I have found quite a few, but I know there have to more out there. If you were an 8-bit sysop or user back in the day, or maybe you dabbled in creating these animations yourself, please give me a holler! I'd love to add any animations you can send me.
  3. Hi, New/old A8 basic coder here (haven't touched it in ~30y). Trying to remember how to use ML strings to redefine character sets... My most immediate problem is that I can't get certain characters on the screen. CHR$(127) does not output the right-facing triangle character. I need to get that in a string to redefine my character set but I'm forgetting how. The screenshot attached shows another person's program that contains said character in a string, but I don't know how it was done. I have access to Atari800MacX, Envision on a windows XP VM, and I'm open to other mac/win/a8 tools if there's an easy-peasy character set generator that outputs what I need. I also don't mind converting the values by hand into ATASCII but I figure there's easier ways My requirements are that the code be self-contained in the basic file and that it be as compact as possible, so I can't use external files to load the charset data, and I figure strings are better than data statements.
  4. Recently I coded up a program to allow converting ASCII and ATASCII files. The program is command line driven and intended for use under SpartaDOS X (earlier versions may also work). I posted this program in the Sparta DOS 4.47 topic, but am moving it here to its own. I am hoping for testing and feedback. When the program is finally done to the level of performance I am happy with, hopefully it can be made part of the SDX Toolkit. But if not, anyone will be free to add it to their own tools collection as they see fit. So, download it and give it a try if you like. Keep the following program usage in mind because right now, very little user entry validation is performed. It is therefore important that you spell out your device:filename entries. AAC (ASCII ATASCII Converter) is designed to copy a source text file to a destination text file, doing a text translation in the process. Only the output format is specified. It will be assumed the input file will be the opposing type. For example, if an ASCII, (either DOS/Win or Unix) output translation is used, then the input file is assumed to be in ATASCII form. Usage: AAC <source> <dest> /[T|A|U|H] /T = convert to ATASCII /A = convert to ASCII (DOS/Win) /U = convert to ASCII (Unix) /H = this help summary Eg: X AAC.EXE D1:COOLINFO.ASC D2:COOLINFO.TXT /T If using COMEXE you can get by with this: AAC D1:COOLINFO.ASC D2:COOLINFO.TXT /T Download the program.
  5. Does anyone have the G: Handler? IIRC, You could LIST"G:" to print ATASCII on an Epson printer. I really need to print some ATASCII files I have so I can make them as consistent as possible. COPY MAINMENU.ATA, G: should also work as well. I had this BITD, does anyone remember this? Basically, I want to print all my BBS menus, etc. so I have a reference when editing them. I want to make this look nice. I definitely remember the G: handler. I just hope someone else does as well (that has the file).
  6. Well hello my fellow Atarians. If you're like me you still use the old Atari (either real thing or emulated), but you also use a modern computer like a Windows PC, Linux PC, or Mac. In that case you probably have cause to use text files from one system on the other and visa versa. As some of you know, I developed a program for the A8 to do converting called AAC. You can get info on that over in it's own topic. This new topic is about a different program with the same name that does the same job, but runs natively on the new machines. It is written in Python so has the ability to be cross platform. So here is AAC v0.1, 32-bit Windows, for your testing pleasure. It works fine as expected in every case I have tested so far, but I like to get feedback from others too. Once any bugs (if any) are ironed out. It will get it's v1.0 release. If you need a Linux version to test let me know.
  7. Does anybody know if there's a way for Paperclip to save files as ATASCII? I couldn't find anything in the manual about it, but I have a feeling it should be possible. I know AtariWriter can do it, but the reference for how to is pretty obscure in the manual, so that's why I think I might be missing something here with Paperclip. Thanks...
