Slogro & Slogro2
By Devin Cook


These two programs are implementations of the SLOGRO fractal process
described in Scientific American - Dec 1988.

Slogro.EXE is the standerd implementation of SLOGRO.

Slogro2.EXE has is roughly the same process except that the main particle
movement routine has been redone in assembly ( FRAC.ASM ), and an alteration
has been done to the premise, whereby instead of the circle being a fixed
radius, it is now a changing radius, starting at 10 pixels and working its
way to 100. This speeds things up but a factor of 20! As the resting
particles approach the radius, the circle is backed off, as to allow for
a truly random process to still take place.

The plotter routines were written for a Comscriber plotter, but could easily
be altered to make a box on the paper at the relative location of the particle
on any plotter.

Finally the graphics are set up to run with a herc graphic card, but it should
be fairly easy to alter it to work with any graphics system.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
