ANALOG Computing was probably the most successful magazine dedicated to Atari 8-bit computers. If you watch closely, you can see at least one issue lying around in Ready Player One which I just watched the other day. By 1987 the last generation of Atari 8-bits (the XE series) had already been around a couple years and ANALOG was also giving some coverage to the Atari ST. The April 1987 issue of ANALOG Computing includes:
- Music during the Musical Blank Interrupt – Part 3 in our series details what’s involved in accomplishing music during the VBI.
- Background Printer -= A device handler which lets your printer do its thing while you are doing yours.
- Floyd the Droid Goes Blastin’ – Wipe out the mutants just for kicks in this new machine-language game.
- HardCopy and CheckWriter – Adding these two programs to MicroCheck (from issue 27) lets you prepare multiple copies and print checks.
