  1. I will be using this thread to document the development of a new programmer editor for the TI-99/4a called "Stevie". Download the cartridge image in the official release thread. As you might expect from its name, the editor is somewhat inspired by the unix editor "vi" and will also take elements of "tmux". So what do I have in mind: Designed from the ground up for 80 columns mode, specifically using the F18A but 9938 will be supported as well. Designed from the ground up for using SAMS card, albeit 32K memory expansion should work as well. Will support FinalGROM 512K bankswitched RAM in addition to SAMS and 32K memory expansion, useful for those without SAMS and PEB. Programming language of choice is TMS9900 assembly language The editor itself will run from cartridge space (multi-bank cartridge). Uses my spectra2 library as foundation (been doing major changes in the last couple of months, not related to games) Will have some "API" so that I can integrate with external programs and go back and forth between programs. Would like to add some kind of mouse support. This will not be a GUI in the traditional sense. If you used tmux with a mouse before you know what I mean. Possibility to have multiple editor panes open at once. Should handle files with up to 65536 lines when using SAMS or FinalGROM 512K bankswitched RAM. Undo functionality, well up to a certain extent that is. Language awareness, e.g. behave differently based upon language (e.g. assembly, C, Basic, ...) Internal text representation will be decoupled from what actually will be rendered on screen. Should make the editor more responsive when dealing with large files, allow split panes, etc. Reconfigurable keymaps, possibility to swap between keymap with single key combination. Not everyone is into VI This is the start of a large project and I don't expect to have a truely useful version anytime soon. I expect this project to take multiple years, but you gotta start somewhere. Now I've taken my mouth full, I will use this thread to keep myself motivated 🙂 There aren't too many resources out there discussing the architecture of a text editor, so cross-linking here.

  2. Hello; I am currently implementing a tool named "VCS Game Maker". This online tool is a no-code environment designed to allow someone to create a game for Atari 2600 without knowing much about programming and without installing anything on their computer. You can use it online on itch.io: https://haroldo-ok.itch.io/vcs-game-maker Source code is available on Github: https://github.com/haroldo-ok/vcs-game-maker It uses Blockly to allow the user to implement the logic using blocks and then, behind the scenes, generates a Batari Basic source code, that is then be compiled using batari-basic-js in order to generate an Atari 2600 ROM, which is then emulated using Javatari. So far, it is a work in progress, with only an event editor with just a few commands. The "if" block and math operations work okay, the joystick reading and access to the players/missiles and balls seem OK so far.
  3. After trying out a new editor that I have been working on Vorticon suggested that I open a topic for the benefit of the greater group. Somebody may find it useful. The ability to copy files and lines and paste them into a new composite file is pretty handy or cut a file up into separate files. It uses key commands for editing and the command line for saving and getting files. DIR and CAT commands are available within the editor because I have a good memory but it's short. ED99-40 column Beta Release 1.1 40 column multi-file editor Changes: V1.1 built on "new and improved" Camel99 Kernel (thanks Tursi) Fixed problem: SAMS card was not initialized on startup. Worked on Classic99 failed on real hardware. Clipboard uses the upper end of SAMS memory so 511 lines can be copied. Fixed the ED99CONFIG file to use DSK1. to find the font to load. Four font files have been included with the release. Feature Additions FCNT 4 (break) will stop file loading. The partial file will be in SAMS memory. Use PURGE if you don't want to keep it FCNT 4 (break) will stop file save. The partial file will be written to disk. CTRL A will copy entire file to clipboard. CTRL P will paste entire file to the END of the current file. (Insert can be too slow at this time) Number of lines in clipboard is displayed on lower right side of editing window PRINT command prints the active file to any DSR enabled device. Examples: PRINT PIO PRINT RS232.BA=9600 PRINT CLIP (Classic99 only) Limitations File size is still limited to 511 lines Inserting to the top of a large file is still slow due to the simple internal data structure. Future 80 Column version and SAMS memory are not playing together nicely. Not sure why yet. Single level undo/redo Document user level editor commands for DSK1.ED99CONFIG Bugs from Vorticon's Beta test Pressing <ENTER> after the first line inputted moves the line down and the cursor is positioned above it. It is not possible to enter text below that first line. Is this a feature or a bug? Pasting with Ctrl-P pastes the contents of the clipboard after the End of File marker and adds yet another End of File marker. I would have thought that the pasted text will appear just above the EOF marker... This should be fixed now. (off by one error...) Below are the contents of the readme file. By the magic of Classic99, in the ED99 command line I typed PRINT CLIP and pasted this into the browser. Pretty cool.

  4. Welcome to... Aquarius Draw! Aquarius Draw Application: https://aquarius.mattpilz.com/draw/ Aquarius Draw User Manual: https://aquarius.mattpilz.com/help.php Aquarius Draw Online Gallery: https://aquarius.mattpilz.com/gallery.php Introduction What began as a weekend hackathon for my own amusement and to better familiarize myself with the Aquarius, quickly spiraled into a multi-month long initiative to create a very powerful tool for all Aquarius developers and enthusiasts. Aquarius Draw is a free, modern web-based application (desktop-only) that allows you to quickly design and prototype scenery within the technical confines of Aquarius. This artwork can then be exported as a PNG, saved to an online gallery, or output as boilerplate Aquarius BASIC or Machine Language to load onto emulators or the devices themselves. It has a huge variety of features and I recommend reviewing the help documentation as well as opening the Keyboard Shortcut panel (F1) to better familiarize yourself with the system. This should rapidly accelerate a lot of software-based efforts in the future, but also is fun just to draw and experiment with even for non-Aquarius users that want to make retro art. I recommend Chrome (Firefox and Edge also supported). You can use the browser's ZOOM to scale the display so it all fits nicely on your screen: Use only zoom levels of 50% (low resolution), 75% (less than 1080p), 100% (1080p), 125% (1440p) or 200% (4k) to ensure minimal distortion. Feature Highlights Full 256 Character Glyph Selector (Sorted and Original Order) with 16-color Background/Foreground and Large Preview 40x24 Drawable Canvas Area and Personalized Border Toggles and Actions to Fine-Tune Drawing Operations Tile Inspector Stats for User Reference Input/Output Actions for Saving and Loading Scene Data Customizable BASIC and Machine Language (Assembly) Boilerplate Code Output for Testing on Emulators or Devices Dynamic Preview of Output with CRT/Monochrome Simulation Export Scene Images as High Quality PNGs Tile Selection Tool with Cut/Copy/Paste Capabilities Pre-populated Templates (Title Screen, Demonstrations and Examples) Tile-specific POKE Data Generation (Raw, with Lines or as DATA Rows) Optional Public Gallery Upload for Showing Off Your Creations Quick-Type Text (Click into Origin Tile and Type Away) Directional Offsetting to Move Specific Rows/Columns in Specified Direction Fast Fill to Quickly Populate Rows or Columns with Selected Brush GIF Demonstration - Intro GIF Demonstration - Fast Fill GIF Demonstration - Copy and Paste GIF Demonstration - Keyboard Typing Aquarius community member Sean H. designed a variety of very helpful visuals using this editor to demonstrate Aquarius color and graphic theory, or how to make the most out of the very limited color and character set. Each of these are available as templates and can be loaded for analysis. Aquarius Color Theory Aquarius Graphics Theory Have fun!
  5. Patterns (1 double sized sprite): http://sometimes.planet-99.net/patterns.html Patterns32 (4 double sized sprites): http://sometimes.planet-99.net/patterns32.html There's an input text field. It's the wide rectangle at the bottom. I've tried to set focus and put a cursor there, but not all browsers pick up on that. The usual functionality, like Ctrl+A to select/highlight all text, should work. Try typing in or copying garbage to the input field, - should be pretty robust.
  6. I am looking for a Windows or Linux based editor for manipulating for editing 4 colour pictures. I then want to save the file to a raw bytes format. The bytes which it saves also need to be packed, so that 1 byte contains the contents of 4 pixels. I am not interested in a chain of tools, i.e. You draw it in Paint and then import it into somewhere else and then run it through something else. In this particular instance, I have a 128 x 24 pixels image which I want to be able to write straight to a file of 768 bytes. I do not need any colour information encoded into the file, just pure pixel values.
  7. Is anyone in possession of the missing documentation for the later version (release version) of Envision? Darren Schebek has the original documentation, but says the documentation for the enhanced XE version didn't survive (at least in his possession).
  8. what the heck is the difference between the super cart and the editor assembler and should I care?
  9. Is this the related dummy site at atarimania.com? Just wondering, because of the American flag - or is it just an unchanged default setting? Couldn't find anything else about this program.
  10. Hello, This project is a visual tool for making visual novels for the Sega 32X. It uses Blockly as a visual editor; the design is then used to generate a C file, which is then compiled into a playable Sega 32X ROM. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dh5M_RHXBfg The current release is version 0.4.0 GitHub page: https://github.com/haroldo-ok/BlocklyVN32X Topic on SpritesMind: http://gendev.spritesmind.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2409
  11. ... a PC based Turbo Basic editor which can write directly to a file within a .atr file?
  12. It seems that I'm the only user on AtariAge whose posts have broken layout. Whenever I include some text using the code layout code code code code code code the surrounding text is way too close to the box. It doesn't even matter how many blank lines I insert in the editor window (in this particular case I used two blank lines each); in the final post spacing is always too tight. This is ... irritating -- as a Python programmer, I'm rather sensitive to whitespace. Others seem to get this right, so I assume that it's my using Chrome on Linux. Any insights on this?
  13. sorry if it might sound offtopic, since it’s not exactly about programming, but it is actually about development http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=66976 i guess it can be useful, because it has an interface very DeluxePaint-like - it has tms9918 as display option it is multiplatform (made on Processing/Java)
  14. I am coding a 10-liner in Atari BASIC but I cannot copy paste small characters/inverse/small inverse characters onto Altirra or any other emulator. What should I use to edit a BASIC program on the PC in a way that can be transferred on to an emulator? I have tried Memo Pad but its files cannot be opened by Altirra or I don't know how to open them. Altirra cannot even import simple plain small letters by copy/paste without converting them into capital letters.
