knew knitting knerd on the list / pro-fashion 2000 / .pat files
- Hi Folks,
I'm a new kid on the list and I was really excited to learn that
there are other people around trying to get their knitting machines
to do what they want .
Concerning the lost knowledge of the ancient folks, I'd like to know
if anyone heard about 'pro-fashion 2000' for Atari?
It is supposed to be a precursor to Designaknit, back from the old
days when °2000° sounded like science fiction and you would buy your
Brother Knitking in your nextdoor knittingstore, rather than on
The only reference I found is a German Designaknit reseller.
I'm sure the guys at Designaknit got the proggy, but they most
probably won't give it away ;) But maybe we could dig up the
Atari-Hero that wrote the legendary program...
John asked if anyone was willing to find out about
the DK .pat file format... I just had a look at a file I found on
the web with a hex editor and it looks fairly streight forward.
I will do some more systematic research in that direction on the
A plugin for the gimp would be a nice thing to target.
There is a Photoshop plugin on the Market but I haven't had the
opportunity to try it...
Right now I'm planning to synthesize .pat files, and check the
Results in the Demoversion of DK7. But at some stage I might need to
systematically convert bitmaps into .pat files
Is there anyone with a DK license who'd like to help?
Okay that's it for today...
I'm looking forward to rock'n'knit with you !
- I have an old program called Bitknitter, I think for Amiga and DOS
machines. I think I only have the Amiga disks, but not sure.
Some point I'll have to get this Catweasel 4 PCI card set up and try to
read the Amiga disks. Theoretically, this card should be able to
read/write TPDD/FB100 diskettes directly using a standard floppy drive.
