Hello Could someone with an Atari 825 printer, please print a sample of all its available characters to paper, flatbed scan the output to a TIFF at 1200ppi and then email me the resulting scan. I spent about an hour trying to find something suitable and have not been able to. I did find a sample but the scan makes it difficult to get a clear understanding of the grid that the dots are imposed on. The reason for this request is so that I can go about recreating all the APX games manual in full vector (resolution independent) glory. If all goes well I should be able to create an Atari 825 TrueType fonts set as well and come back with links to the same. If you have an Atari 825 printer and are able to output the fill character set in all the available character styles I would appreciate it very much. You can send me the scan to [email protected] or go wetransfer.com, drag and drop the file into the page and enter my email as the recipient. I did find a sample on AtariMagazines.com but the resolution is somewhat insufficient for the intended purpose. I really appreciate anyone who can help with this effort.
As I work on an Atari 825 font, researching old documents has uncovered (for me anyway) some rather interesting things, amongst them is a program called PLOT 825. It is mentioned in the "Library Notes" of the TAIG (Twin Cities Atari Interest Group) Atari Newsletter 1983-09. According to the notes, the PLOT 825 program was included in the TAIG August Disk of the Month. Reference: page 2 https://archive.org/details/TAIGAtariNewsletter1983-09?q=plot+825 It is mentioned again in the "Free Software for Your Atari" book published in 1983. Reference: page 17 https://archive.org/details/ataribooks-free-software-for-your-atari/page/n17?q=plot825 Does anyone have disks with this software? TAIG also had a BBS as per textfiles.com, http://bbslist.textfiles.com/612/oldschool.html 612-432-3779 Minneapolis, MN Twin Cities Atari Interest Group If I may please donate to the internet archive.
