zip26 Pagefox Manual

A new computer application has been making a splash recently: Desktop Publishing.  This means the complete creation of all kinds of printed matter (letters, advertising, brochures, invitations, etc.) on the computer, including the layout, variation of the fonts used, and the integration of graphics.  Although some conventional word-processing programs already offered such possibilities, there were many restrictions, and the final result was usually only seen when it was printed out.  In desktop publishing, on the other hand, you do the complete design on the screen and see the result there just as it will be printed out later.  WYSIWYG means in computers: “What you see is what you get”.

zip34 Power Plan 64 Manual

As you probably know, POWER PLAN is a "spreadsheet". All types of calculations may be carried out with the aid of POWER PLAN. As an example of a calculation, let's calculate the selling price for an item based on the specified cost price. This is a calculation which a retailer has to make every day.

The cost price of an article is a combination of various factors. The most significant ones are the actual cost price, the additional costs (rent, etc.) and the retailer's profit margin. To calculate the selling price, the retailer needs various implements. For example, a sheet of paper, a pencil and in most cases, a pocket calculator. In this case you can already see that it is very sensible to use a computer for these calculations, as it offers advantages in a number of ways.

With suitable software, the computer is able to replace the above-mentioned implements. And you have this software right in your hands.

POWER PLAN not only replaces these implements, but offers you many other advantages.

S.A.M. -- the Software Automatic Mouth -- a versatile, high-quality speech synthesizer created entirely in software.

S.A.M. is designed to be easy to use. With a couple of simple program statements, you can add speech to your BASIC or assembly-language programs. When you have mastered the easy-to-learn phonetic alphabet, the inflection system, and the use of pitch and speed controls, you will be amazed at what you can make S.A.M. do. And, until then it will already match the performance of other speech synthesizers.

zip56 Spritemaster 64 User's Manual

The Spritemaster 64 animation program is designed as a sprite generator and editor for use by programmers or as a fun and creative playmate for children or adults.

Sprites are movable object blocks which, through the power of the new Commodore 64 computer, can be made to imitate almost any moving object.

Spritemaster helps you build your sprite, then copy and modify it to produce a sequence of pictures which represent the object in motion. The Animate command will then put each picture on the screen in rapid succession to create the animation. This is similar to what takes place in a movie projector where still photographs, each a slightly different picture, are rapidly projected one after another onto the screen to produce a “ motion picture.”

Spritemaster lets you modify your sprite picture sequence to produce colors, shapes and sizes which give the best effect. In addition, you may change the speed of animation (the rate at which the still frames are displayed) or the speed of travel (the vertical or horizontal movement across the screen).

Once you have created your animated figure, you can save the informaton to tape or disk for retrieval at a later time. You may want to refine several figures for use in a game program. Although Spritemaster is not a game program, it is a program to create game objects. For example, it cannot display a pitcher throwing a baseball to a catcher. It can, however, be used to create the pitcher as a separate sprite, including the throwing motion, then the baseball as another sprite, and then the catcher as the final sprite. Each object is created separately and then transfered to other programs for interaction and movement as desired. The programmer’s reference section provides guidance on how to manipulate sprites in your own programs.
