I'm having problems trying to print my basic programs listings directly to my Windows printer using APE. I keep getting the error message "Printing to Windows printer driver failed. (Printer index is out of range)". Seems to work ok if I print the listings to the Virtual Epson MX-80 first, then from there to my printer, but APE won't talk to my printer directly. Has anyone else had this issue and is there a fix for it?

make sure you have an atari atascii font available in widows, if not go download one.....and install
make sure you select the correct windows printer driver and imager in ape don't forget the printer icon right next to it!
make sure when setting the above in ape configuration tab (P:) Printer Emulation that you click the little printer icon halfway down and select the ATASCII font you installed on winblows
make sure to select proper printer port at bottom as well...
then I think you have to type
LPRINT "esckeyesckey!A (pressing escape key on atari twice make a funny esc squiggle, line print command sets mode)
I think your good to go!
now you can list to the printer all you want...

have link to ttf ... fonts.html
more than one way to print thru APE with this
don't forget you can download an epson esc printer translation software as well
google prtwin.exe epson
