Yrrah2,
I have purchased a SuperArt book. I also had in my collection PaintPot and ColourArt. I have not found the disk for ColourArt yet. It does a similar job to PaintPot.
Would they be of use on your WebSite.

That looks great!!
The Paint Pot and Colour Art would indeed be a good addition to the rest. =D>
So if you can scan those would be GREAT!

I have a Super Art manual (did not had the time to scan and OCR it, going to be in october I think).
But would be nice to see if this manual is for different version of the software.
The version I have (for AMX V3.61) has a Section 4 called quick reference guide. There they exlpain the extra commands a user can use in their own programs. And at the total end they explain the Master version that uses 4 SWR banks.
The page counting goes up to 108 and after that, is the Master version explained in Appendix 1 and 2

Cheers

I congratulate you on the recovery work you have done, it was great for me and my group of collectors to try these unknown software, especially the AMX section.

I have created an adapter to be able to use the mouse in both TWO modes (classic and AMX mode) on the PC128S. I created the 16k EPROMs successfully!

I am writing an email to confirm the perfect compatibility of the AMX MOUSE with the PC128S thanks to the use of dedicated software (obviously a light hardware modification on the mother board is required for the signals of the RB MD LB buttons).

look at the attached photos and the video at the link ->

I would be happy if you contact me privately to help complete our work!

Found this while going through some stuff: Watford Page Fonts, not obviously already archived.

No idea how you use it, but I found a reference to it in a late 80s Watford advert - "PAGE-FONTS - Over 20 Fonts for use with AMX Pagemaker" - so this thread seems like the best place for it.

Thanks, never noticed this advertised before. Found it in adverts in '87 as a freebie with purchases of Pagemaker.

What you could try is to take colour in pictures from the web, convert them with the image converter and, load them on a disc to use with AMX art.
I did this a while back for my son with pictures from Miffy.
Worked quite well.
I can try if I have them somwhere if you want them.
Bet you can find Wallice and grommit pictures too :wink:
