Before I start with the breakthrough, I deeply want to thank 3 big users of the community: Bill Lange, Mark L. Simonson and Prof. Mark Grebe. Today, we have a game changer for all and easy to use. It all started when Bill send me a printout with all special fonts from our beloved Atari. At this time, it was a little complicated, at least for me. Meanwhile, in over years, I even did not manage to upload this to the Wiki. Shame on me. 😞 Besides this, Mark L. Simonson developed the Atari Font for modern computers: https://atariwiki.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=Atari True Type Font for PC and Mac No general assembly of ABBUC without his font, you know, we couldn't read anything... He further developed the font with the German special letters, too. WOW, like flashdance, what a feeling. 🙂 Combined with these both, I asked Prof. Grebe, whether they may be a chance to insert this into a printout for our beloved Mac emulator? Guess what? He did it! Ladies and Gentlemen, we now have the chance to preserve the source codes 1:1 with all special Atari characters!!! :-))) That is so incredible! :-))) Therefore from all five continents: all soooooo much!!!!! :-))) So, how is this done? First, please download the new Atari800MacX 5.2.0 Alpha 1.app: Atari800MacX 5.2.0 Alpha 1.app.zip It is now in Alpha 1 status, but working fine yet and doing it's job for source code preservation. Please see the results below. When the program is up, choose: from the control panel. Once done, load in any source code you want to print out. I have taken for example SCRAM. First, I loaded in the LOADER program from BASIC: LOAD"D:SC*.* Then I typed in the command: LIST"P:". After a short wait, I choose the button: "Preview" form the control panel and the emulator switched to: Here, please press the marked button with the red arrow. You can save the result into a pdf file. 🙂 Doing the same again with the main program in the largest version available results in: Scram 24K Source Code.pdf So, you can see, time to: One last beg from me, please don't contact Prof. Grebe, he is working very hard on the release version. I am sure, we can find the answers here in the forum. May you all have a great sunday and the force with you, always. 🙂 Scram 24K-Version (english) (Basic).atr
For quite a while now, I have been looking for a ROM of the ATASCII Animation program that was for the Atari 800, "Atari Toons". I used every search engine I know of, trying to find a ROM of it, and I have also been to a ton of ROM sites as well, but I can't seem to get ahold of one. I also can't find any physical copies of it on eBay or Amazon. Can someone help me out?
