GREAT LAKES JOYPAINT PAL 2.0

Recommended Posts

Anybody have a copy of Joypaint Pal 2.0?

I need for use with Certificate 99.

It must be 2.0, 1.0 will not work.

I need version 2.0 of Joypaint Pal because it can view and edit pictures for use with Certificate 99 2.0. Both produced by Great Lakes. Encryption is not a problem.

Thanks for your efforts guys, but Joypaint Pal 2.0 isn't there.

I believe it was released in 1988.

Thanks Ciro

i just tried the disk and I also failed to get it to load. 
The file J_2 is the main program, I think. 
it’s got DSK1.BIT at the beginning of the file which I don’t think is correct.

Lots of disk protection magic ... The files J.1, J.2, J.3 have an ASCII 30 character at the position of the period.

I am pretty sure I only have Joypaint 1.0 as well, but this second disk appears to have a complete loader.

JOYPNT2.DSK

 

And trying to extract files from it fails, so yeah, copy protected. Ugh! 😕 And I don't have my original disks anymore.

I usually use Disk Manager 1000 v6.0 to copy floppies,
is there something better to use to also copy floppies also with protections like Joy Paint 2?

Seems to run in MAME. You start into Extended Basic, it loads something that resembles the E/A cartridge, and option 5 loads UTIL1 and UTIL2.

 

@ciro: Copy-C may be able to copy it.

I do know that TIDIR does not recognize the J?1,etc files. I have had to copy straight using Paulo’s software in Windows 98. I do not think there is any disk protection per se, but I don’t know for sure.

JOYPAINT99 is Protected ! (also Qualitysoft, SpadxIII  ect.)

 

I created Disc Images from protected disks via serial cable

 

with TRANS on TI and V9T9/Recv at PC, see in this Video a Modul Transfer, also works with discs

Since the DSK file seems to work, and DSK has no sector metadata or other track information, a sector copier should be able to do it.

Success!

After some creative searching I found Joypaint Pal 2.0 on the WHT.

The dsk contains no protection.

I needed it badly to work with Certificate 99 2.0 to manipulate the font, border, signature and graphic files. 
I don’t give up very easily.

I purchased both JP & JP Pal BITD but I think I only upgraded JP and not Pal. The original disks are stashed with other original disks that were my backup and I haven't come across those yet. My old "work" disks don't have version info. I did look for ya but had nothing useful to add. Glad you found it! I had a goal of home publishing and wanted to do it on my TI if possible. I used both programs for awhile and liked them, but I also moved to Mac about that time, and frankly, well,... it was Apples to Oranges to compare. Same for my hard-earned learning stint using Printer's Apprentice, also good but no contest versus Mac with a scanner, inkjet and laser printers. The other difference was the two or three grand the big jump to Mac cost! And that was in the low-cost tier.
