1st Guide is an splendid little file viewer which runs as ACC, Besides showing text it can display GEM-fonts,
play samples and some MPEGs and some JPGs. In the latter case it outperforms picture-viewers like IMGCopy
(loading, decoding and dithering). Text-files can link as a simple alternative to STGuides HYPs.
All archives of it only contain the program itself and a short manual-doc - NO technical documentation!
The short doc. ends with "get the full package with tools (for making hypertexts etc.)".
Does anybody have the full package or full documantation - does it even exist?
I have a book "Software for the Atari", it's not a catalogue but a real book with all the programs the authors
could find at the time with description, screenshots and a short evaluation. Unfortunately if the developers
were French the last remark is usually "excellent application - French only!" And it seems to have stayed
that way ever since! In fact not too many German programs have been tranlated; but with the French it's
close to zero!
One of those is "Le Redacteur" (a rather large word-processor), does an English or German tranlation exist?
Finally the usual "Geneva-desperation": Tools and programs made for Geneva???
Rather weird none of the crackers ever bothered to include any of the tools and utilities for Geneva, and I've
never come across any apps made specifically for Geneva...
Oh... any chance of documentation for text formats? Quite a lot of older programs have a manual in ".DOC"
(1st word or what ever) usually illegible in a normal viewer - close to pure ASCII but with lots of control chars
hurting your eyes.
