Synopsis

Since its first release in early 2019, dMagnetic is a Magnetic Scrolls interpreter for modern devices. Its main goal is being as portable as possible, and can be found in various operating systems as a pre-compiled package. Instead of relying on graphical libraries such as GTK, QT or SDL, it is designed to run the games in a terminal window.

  • Magnetic Windows Resource Files
  • Amstrad CPC disk images (DSK)
  • Spectrum128/Spectrum+3
  • Acorn Archimedes
  • AtariXL/Atari800 ATR image files
  • Apple II NIB/2MG/WOZ files

Graphical Modes

Magnetic Scrolls was known for its beautiful graphics. dMagnetic is capable of displaying them, on its own, in the terminal window.

  • none - does not render the graphics
  • monochrome - Renders images as ASCII Art
  • low ansi - Renders images in 16-Color ANSI Art
  • high ansi - Truecolor graphics
