FracXtra v4.0: Fractint Extras Collection by Dan Goldwater, 2/29/93 release.
distributed as FRACXTR4.ZIP


FracXtra is a huge collection of .map, .par, .frm, .ifs, .l, .key, and .bat
files, as well as some small external programs for the best fractal generator
ever made, Fractint, by the Stone Soup Group (they want glory. they
deserve glory. give them glory). version 17 or higher of fractint is
needed for some of the files in this collection. The files are
by no means all made by me, although i did make quite a few of
the .map and .par files myself. The FracXtra collection
is really just a collection of all the fractint .map, .par, .frm, etc.
files i have found on the internet and on bulletin


version 4!
got a lot of new stuff (thanks to contributors), cleaned things up a
little more, zipped the collection with the
old pkzip v1.10, because some people don't yet have the new
pkzip v2.04g (or info-zip's unzip v5.0 and zip v1.9, which support
pkzip v2.04g type compression).


getting your own Fractint extras in the FracXtra collection:

If you have any good Fractint extras you would like
to have included in this collection, just tell me how to get them and i
will include them in the next release.


where to get FracXtra:

FracXtra can be obtained from finer bulletin boards, as well
as on the Internet. If you can't find it anywhere, I can upload it to
an Internet site for you. Just email me, and ask.

Finer Bulletin Boards (not by any means a complete list):
The Graphics Alternative BBS, 510-524-2780
Quantum BBS, 413-584-1863
Channel 1 BBS, 617-354-7077 617-354-3137 617-354-5776 617-354-8873

Internet FTP sites:
Unfortunately, FracXtra does not yet have a permanent home anywhere on the
Internet (anyone want to give it one? please email me if you do).
However, new releases of FracXtra are often found on the following sites: in /pub/MSDOS_UPLOADS/graphics/ or
/pub/MSDOS_UPLOADS/misc/ or similar. in /pub/pc/win3/uploads/ in /pub/ (this is the XFractint source.
XFractint includes the full FracXtra with it. look for the
file xfract172.tar.Z or similar. the FracXtra release may be here
as a separate file as well).

where to get Fractint:

Fractint v17.2/17.3 is available in versions for dos, windows, and X.
you can get Fractint on any of the above BBS systems and internet
FTP sites. on, look in /mirrors/msdos/graphics/ as the source code is, and the X version is the windows version is in /mirrors/msdos/windows3/ as New versions of the software will presumably have similar
names when they are released.


I make absolutely no
claim to ownership of most of the files or programs
contained here, and some of them may be shareware, although most
are freeware or public domain. Many of the files
are copyrighted in the specific files by whoever made them. Due to
the methods and time period over which this
collection was/is gathered, it
would be impossible to list all the contributors whose names are not
specifically in a file contained herein.
basically i think what i want to say here is all
the legal stuff that gets me off the hook when
you sue me for something. just insert
any and all disclaimers here. i am not trying to
make any money from this, anyway. if any author of something
in this collection doesn't like what i am doing, just email or real-mail
me and i'll correct the situation.


using the collection:

.par files are fractal parameter files. press '@', then 'f6' to load a
parameter file.
.map files are fractal color maps. load them with 'l' when in color cycling
mode (press 'c' to go to color cycling mode when an image is displayed).
.frm files are fractal formula files. press 't', choose 'formula', then
press 'f6' to load a formula file
.ifs files are IFS type fractal formula files. press 't', choose 'IFS', then
press 'f6' to load an IFS formula file.
.l files are L-system fractal formula files. press 't', choose 'L-system',
then press 'f6' to load an L-system formula file.
.bat files are for running fractint with command line options from dos.
.key files are fractint macro keylists, for demos and such.
other files are external programs, .txt files describing files in the
collection, or other things.

note that all the extras files contained in the release
Fractint v17.2 are in fracxtra.
while the various types of fractint files are separated into their own
directories in this archive, you may want to put them all in your
fractint main directory, because using them is easier that way.
but, if you really don't want all 300 files in one directory, unzip this
file with -d to recreate the directory structure. note that the
.frm, .bat, and possibly some of the other files in the collection
may not work as expected if they aren't in the same directory as fractint.exe.
maybe newer versions of fractint will allow a forcefully defined directory
for each type of file.


upgrading old fracxtra releases:

upgrading from version 2 or version 1:

everything in the previous releases of fracxtra is in this release, but some
files have been renamed, some conglomerated to reduce the number of files, and
some deleted if they duplicated other files. as a result, you can delete
every file in the old version and then unzip this collection. the
problem is that if you have made any fractint files of your own, you will
have to avoid deleting them (heh heh).
to help you do this, the following files existed in version 2 but have been
deleted in this version:
all .l files except fractint.l, penrose.l, tiling.l
moreifs1.ifs, (what were these all white and all black maps for?!?)

upgrading from version 3, 2, and 1:

the /txt directory was eliminated. the .txt files are now in /other.
erase the following files, which were either duplicates or were renamed:,,


notes on specific files:

many of the .txt files in /other correspond to a .par and/or .frm file, and
describe how to use it or who wrote it or something like that.

fractint.frm and improved.frm have many of the same formulas in them, but
they have been organized so that fractint.frm is a subset of improved.frm.
the formulas in fractint.frm have many of the variables preset, such that
they require less parameters than the corresponding (and similarly named)
formulas in improved.frm. many of the improved.frm formulas in turn have
a comment which gives example values to try in a formula, and these are
often the values used to preset that formula in fractint.frm. note that
the fractint.frm included in the collection is different from the one
included in Fractint v17. you may want to rename improved.frm to
fractint.frm, and fractint.frm to oldfract.frm, because many of the .par
files expect certain formulas to be in fractint.frm which are now only
in improved.frm.

some of the .par and .bat files are directory dependant, and may not be
able to find the .frm, .map, or .par files they need to work properly.
in general, most can be made to work if your fractint.exe is located in
c:\fract\ and the .frm, .map, .par, and/or .bat files in question are
also located in c:\fract\. you could also fix this problem by editing the
files in question, or by adding your .map, .par, and .frm files on the path.

the following files were made by me: about half of the .map files, including
almost all the various rainbow and volcano and fade ones. i made the
dgeneral.par and the dcontpot.par files, both are (c), but you
can use them for any non-profit purpose you wish, as long as
you don't claim you made them. i also wrote part of the
24bit.txt info file on making 24bit fractals, and
the frachead.ray rayshade header file. also many of the .txt and .bat files
describing various stuff (in /other). also made fraccfg.2.


version history:

version 1:
- the initial release. totally undocumented and disorganized and incomplete.
everyone kept bugging me and bugging me to re-upload it everywhere .

version 2:
- got a whole bunch of new .par, .frm, .l, and .bat files, and a few .map's
- made this readme file, and the file_id.diz.
- discovered that none of the .ifs files were in the correct format. i fixed
them, and consolidated all the new ones into one file, moreifs.ifs.
- consolidated a few of the .par files that had only a few .par's
in them into the misc.par file.
- eliminated duplication in a few of the .par files (like wohlers.par
and all of the .par files i made myself), and i consolidated my own .par's.

version 3:
- got a few new .map and .par files
- nuked a ton of .l and .ifs files because they were dups
- changed the zip-exe dir to an other dir, and put in some new stuff.
- removed duplication from the remaining .l files.
- removed duplication between fractint.frm and improved.frm, and
reorganized those files (see notes).
- fixed one of the formulas in improved.frm which had a syntax error (jm_23).
- made a .txt file about making 24bit fractals
- used pkzip v2.04e to compress
- made a .ray file header for rayshade output files
- misc. editing of files

version 4:
- made fade*.map
- deleted, renamed and
- got select.frm file, and burt.par file
- got a .map file making program,
- moved the /txt stuff into /other
- used the old pkzip v1.10 to compress, for compatibility
- misc. editing of files
- made/added .txt and .bat files on animating fractals.
- got about 20 new .map, a .par, and a .ifs file
- got, a par-to-bat converter
- got a .cfg file and .ini additions and other misc. files in /other
