Conversion of files to turbo systems and standard tape records
Transfer games and programs from PC to your 8-bit Atari computer using just a data recorder.
TURGEN SYSTEM converts files to various turbo systems and also to standard tape records.
Output of the program is a WAVE file, an electric signal on the output of the sound card, or a tape image.
Turgen System has special support for conversion of segmented binary files which includes a wizard and a set of binary loaders.
Standard tape records are fully supported. Tape images with baud, data, and
fsk chunks can be read by the Tape image plugin.
Monolithic binary files, segmented binary files, BASIC files, and plain data files can be converted to standard tape records by the Standard plugin.
Data recorder with a turbo upgrade typically allows transfer speed from 2200 to 6000 bd.
With unmodified data recorder, you are limited to 600 - 800 bd and standard tape records.
