NX-1000.COM works best with the printer in native STAR mode (all the
swtches in DIP switch 1 on). Unfortunately this does not allow printing
IBM graphics characters without setting up the printer for IBM character
set #2. You can do this easily enough in software, however.
IBM-CS2.PRN is a printer setup file which you can use to get your screen
prints, etc. to look right while the printer hardware is in STAR mode.
Just put it in a convenient directory on your hard disk, and add a line
in your AUTOEXEC.BAT to copy it to the printer. This would look like:
COPY \path\IBM-CS2.PRN LPT1 > NUL
That's all there is to it! This way you have access to all the neat
STAR fonts, and you maintain IBM compatibility - at least until you
reset or turn off the printer. You can use NX-1000.COM to set it back
to IBM mode if this happens. HAVE A BALL!!!
