Welcome to the miscellaneous software page.

Over the years we've collected some useful programs which had one thing in common - they were in German! But now you can enjoy them too - some I've translated myself, others are by Peter West. Some are still in their native tongue, but they're useful nonetheless.

We've also added some programs that are exclusive to this web site which have been supplied by their respective authors.

SMU Setup

The "smart" way to configure StartMeUp with Drag'n'Drop interface. Requires MagiC and StartMeUp (full English package).

MagicSLM

(German docs) A software solution to the problem of printing from a Falcon/PC/Mac or whatever to Atari's SLM804/605 laser printers using an HP Deskjet or Laserjet 300dpi driver on the client computer. You will need an ST (minimum 2Mb memory), the Diablo emulator (available on ftp sites), and a null modem cable to connect the two. Use the highest common baud rate, 8-N-1 with no handshake on the ST, same settings but XOn/XOff on the client computer, or if you can't redirect printer output to the printer port, you may be able to print to a disk file and take that to the ST (full package).
