morelenmir Posted June 21, 2013 Share Posted June 21, 2013 (edited) I have come across a lot of fascinating threads lately while looking for native windows Atari programming tools. Sadly they are all scattered over the forum and it can be tricky to track them down. I thought I would start a new thread to concentrate these links in one place. I have taken care to give links to the pages where tools reside, not the tool archives themselves so as to give their authors as much well-deserved traffic as possible. To start the ball rolling: http://wudsn.com/ - When combined with Eclipse this is simply the best Atari 8-bit ASM programming environment for windows. Absolutely essential. http://atari.miribilist.com/atasm/ - An extremely good cross-assembler. Uses MAC/65 syntax with some useful expansions. My own favourite. http://mads.atari8.info/ - Another excellent cross-assembler. Probably more powerful than ATasm and certainly what all the cool kids use. A little cryptic in the instruction manual though! http://atari.miribilist.com/envision/ - A VERY cool font and character editor. The interface is intended to replicate the 'Envision' tool that ran on the a8 I believe. The export options are especially nice. http://matosimi.webs...fontmaker-v1-3/ - Another very nicely appointed font editor. Outputs only to FNT files. http://ataritools.fr...1-8_BIT-k2-.htm - A Swiss army knife of windows tools for A-8 programming. Sadly we can currently only ogle from afar as distribution is by application to the author only. I hope a public version will be put up soon. http://pengwin.atari...de53622f-3.html - Another application that seems jam packed with useful tools. Again, it seems currently not available for download, but with any luck we will all soon be able to give it a test drive. http://www.horus.com/~hias/atari/#tools-win32 - A number of really interesting apps for many tasks. Not all absolutely programming related, but useful nonetheless. These are just the programmes I have encountered so far. I will add more as I find them and perhaps some of the other fellows would like to do the same? Edited June 21, 2013 by morelenmir 8 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
