Mark Zajac's utility enables you to design UDCs on your Amstrad CPC464. It uses text windows so you can see four characters at once
This program will help you design user defined graphics on your Amstrad CPC464. It uses text windows, which means that four characters can be seen on screen at any one time.
Hints on conversion
This program will be very hard to convert to machines with no facilities for creating windows. You could create four subroutines for controlling the position of the cursor depending on which grid has been chosen.
CHR$(243) = →
The PRINT CHR$(&1E) instruction in line 190 moves the cursor to the top left hand corner of the window.
The SYMBOL instruction denotes which character in the character set is to be redefined and is followed by the eight numbers making up the new character.
