Ataritools 800 , Is it for real ?

I stumbled upon this Page and it looks like a fantasic tool for Atari 8-bits, And also a nice looking Phoenix clone is presented on the page.

 

 

Is this Atari tool for real ? it looks very nice.

I cannot really see it in the screen shots of the web site. Does this tool suport map editting and the 5th color of ANTIC-mode 4?

Further, is the exported format easy to use (post-processing)?

What about the ORing-colors (PMG - Playfield)?

 

ATM we are using the C64-tools CharPad and SpritePad which work great and the output is easily convertable to an A8-format (esp. Sprites to PMG).

But it cannot display 6-color sprites (PM0-3 combined). The ship in HAR'em was done "by hand".

yeah, the tool chain is very c64 basic (me, too, using charpad and sprite pad). but I am more interested in the Phoenix port :)

used this for C64 development for playing around a bit, even with seuck stuff and so on. looking forward to get similar stuff for the A8. Commodore has csdb for many many stuff ... what about A8? something similar database?

 

was crawling the web for a copy of ataritools-800 but no luck so far. wrote an email to the author. at least used the contact form for a request ;)

He sent me a copy (which is obviously private) some time ago in which more than just the char editor worked, but it was quite buggy. Drop him a line and ask if he has a new private beta for testing. It would be nice to see this tool finished.
