Now in the Archive is:

           Fractasia  v1.58
            Shareware from
      Analog Concepts in Digital
            (c) Jan. 1993

FRAC1.ARC       - Main Program (side 1)*
                - Example .SET files (side 2)

FRAC2.ARC       - Jeff Potter's ColrView program.
                - Many pre-generated .R.G.B files.

Fractasia is a fairly elaborate Mandelbrot Set generator that generates
Fractal images in Atari OS modes 3,5,7,8,9,10,11,15 and even supports
ColrView for 160x192x64 resolution.  I obtained Jeff Potter's ColrView
and APACview programs a short time ago and, since I was already doing some 
fractal programming, I decided to combine the two.  (Fractasia only generates
the .R .G .B files and ColrView is required to view them).

Additional features include:
        Save/Restore/Resume calculation.
        Variable size and proportion ZOOM BOX.
        Color Cycling (of OS modes).
        DMA on/off.
        SpartaDOS X compatibility.  (Will not function under SD3.2).
        Works GREAT from a hard-drive.

In the Works:
        Fractal Landscapes.
        APAC support.
        A Fractal Animation Package.  (Animated Zooms and Pans and such).

The Program was developed under SpartaDOS X and is written in Turbo Basic 
(compiled) and will function on any machine that Turbo Basic programs will 
run on.  (Fractasia has also been tested under AtariDOS and variants).

Fractasia is ShareWare.   A completely voluntary $5 donation is suggested 
but if nothing else, I would like all users to fill out the registration 
form so I can keep you informed about updates.

NOTE:  This program has not undergone any 'real-world' testing yet!
       I have debugged it the best I could on my own (with the help
       a couple Beta-Testers).  Bugs are bound to show up and I 
       encourage you to alert me of any you find.  There are many more
       freatures that I would like to add, but I want to be certain
       that this version works properly.
