DATABIOTICS DESKTOP PUBLISHER

Recommended Posts

Is there anyone on the forum that might be able to cobble together a conversion program to convert TI Artist Instance files to the Desktop Publisher format and DTP files to Artist Instances?

 

I've owned this cart for a long time and never really used it much because there was no way to pull art from other formats.

 

I thought it would be neat to maybe do a weekly one or two page newsletter using DTP.

 

Attached is a dsk with some cheesy artwork I've done with DTP.

Wasn't there a program back in the 90's that could convert PC GIF or RLE files into to Artist format?  If you can find that program, you could load up the image you want in Classic 99 on the PC, take a copy of the screen image, save it to GIF format and the use the TI program to convert it to Artist Format.  I know it takes a few extra steps, but as far as I know, their is nothing like Tursi's Convert 9918 program for the format you are looking for.

That wouldn’t do me any good. I need a conversion program that would take instance files and convert them to the screwy DTP format. Funny thing is the guy that wrote TI Artist also wrote DTP.

I see there has been a few downloads of my cheesy artwork. Has anyone tried putting together a conversion program? I’d still like to knock out a single page flyer using this clunky cartridge.

I’m pretty certain there isn’t any info for the Databiotics cart but there may be info for TI-Artist in the manual. I’ll take a look and see.
