Print a Jpeg out of my AtariST

Post by greefa » Fri Sep 18, 2015 6:25 pm

Hello,

I would like to print a jpeg with my 9needle Panasonic KX-P1081.

Any ideas how i have to convert the jpeg to get it into my Atari & which software i need to print it?

I have got a gotec-emulator with USB. And an Atari 1040 STF.

Thanks for your help!

Hello,

You can convert your JPEG file in BMP format, then use the MPP2BMP command line tool to convert the BMP format into the MPP format (Atari ST Multipalette Picture file format). There is also a MPP2BMP command line tool to make the reverse operation. I tried it successfully.

Web site of the author of this tool: http://zerkman.sector1.fr/index.php?pos ... ile-format
Download link (also available on the web site): http://zerkman.sector1.fr/public/mpp/mpp-1.0.1.zip

Another tool, but which only works in one way (from several ST pictures file format to PNG format): RECOIL (http://recoil.sourceforge.net/)

Hope this will help. :wink:
