Create a work of art on the Amstrad machines with this program by R Mitchell

The following programme will enable people to use the Amstrad as a canvas, to draw and paint pictures on.

There are 16 colours in mode 0. One of these is the paper colour; you will be able to use the other 15 of these to paint with. I've chosen white for the paper, colour number 13, which comes out more like a light grey. The pen that I've used for this is Pen 0. This colour can be altered from within the program quite easily at any time and the border will change to the same colour. When you run the program you will see the 15 colours along the top, and underneath are the 8 shapes you can use. To get access to these shapes you have to use the numeric keypad on the right hand side. Keys 0 to 7 are the keys required. By pressing the corresponding key the shape will appear in the top right hand corner of the screen. 

  • Cursors - these move the cursor on the screen in the direction that the arrows point.
  • Shape 0 - This is just a single plot. If you want to draw a shape with this, press the D key to draw and a face will appear in the top left hand corner. This is to let you know that you are drawing. To move the cursor without drawing press the M key and the case will disappear. M means move. Use the cursor keys to move.
  • Shape 1 - This is a wide band and you control it with the same keys as above. It's best used with the Shift key down, then press the cursor keys.
  • Shape 2 - This plots at random on a 8*8 area; again it's best used with the Shift key down. If you press the R key you will get the dots printed in a random colour. Sprints them in a single colour.
  • Shape 3 - This draws a line between two points. If you position the cursor when you want the line to start from, press the 1 on the main keyboard and then move the cursor to where you want the line to finish and press the 2 on the main keyboard. Shape 4 - This draws a box. Position the cursor at the bottom left and press the 7 on the main keyboard then position the cursor at top right and press the 2 on the main keyboard.
  • Shape 5 - This draws a solid box. Use the same as above.
  • Shape 6 - This will draw a circle. Position the cursor where you want the centre of the circle to be and press 1 on the mam keyboard. Now move the cursor to where the outside of the circle is to be drawn and press 2 on the main keyboard.
  • Shape 7 - This draws a triangle. This is the only shape you have to set three points, using the 1, 2, 3 on the main keyboard. F - Position the cursor in the middle of what shape it is you want to fill, then press the F key.
  • To Change Colour - Press the spacebar and the first colour will start flashing. Move along the colours using the left and right cursor keys; when you have the colour that you wish to use, press the copy key.
  • To Change Pallet - To alter the colours of the pallet, first press the spacebar then press the C key. You will now see a number appear in the top nght hand comer. This should be 13 if you are using this control for the first time. If you press the up and down cursors the number will change and the paper and border colours will be the same as the colour number. This is because you are altering the colour of pen 0. This is the pen that I've used for the paper. To move along the pallet press the left and right cursor keys and then alter the colours by pressing the up and down cursor keys. Press Copy when you have finished and you will return to the main routine with your new colours intact.

L'Amstrad CPC est une machine 8 bits à base d'un Z80 à 4MHz. Le premier de la gamme fut le CPC 464 en 1984, équipé d'un lecteur de cassettes intégré il se plaçait en concurrent  du Commodore C64 beaucoup plus compliqué à utiliser et plus cher. Ce fut un réel succès et sorti cette même années le CPC 664 équipé d'un lecteur de disquettes trois pouces intégré. Sa vie fut de courte durée puisqu'en 1985 il fut remplacé par le CPC 6128 qui était plus compact, plus soigné et surtout qui avait 128Ko de RAM au lieu de 64Ko.
