Hi there I was recently trying to hook up an early 2000s epson printer to my Acorn Archimedes which got me thinking about whether its possible to connect them to an Atari? Can you get the centronics adapter for an atari? I seem to remember seeing a Commodore one on eBay. Plus the drivers. I presume if you have the driver for an old epson printer it would connect, just with limited functionality? Forgive me if these seem like silly questions, I'm 16 and sadly don't have the benefit of experience. Thanks for your time!
Just picked myself up a nice small Canon BJC-70 printer from Evilbay. Selected specifically for its Epson LQ compatibility and the fact it has a Centronics parallel port. It's all working absolutely fine with my 130XE dumping text and printing from PrintShop (love those silly icons you can do). The question is though, are there any programs, commercial or otherwise, that can actually print in colour? Screen dump applications would be nice, but I'm just looking for something to mess around with in colour. Obviously this would need a program that can print to an Epson compatible printer. I've also got the printer hooked up via a switcher to the PC; do any of the emulators have the capability of dumping raw to a printer, bypassing the Windows driver, so that it will pass the Epson code directly to the printer? I've played around with Altirra, and can only find the option to display printer output on screen.
