Almost any B&W hi-con developer will work: D-11, D-19, Dektol or any enlarging paper developer . . .
Nix to D-8, and also Part A/Part B graphic arts "litho" developers - and D-8 as they are strongly alkaline,
and will make the emulsion more soft and delicate. The A/B developer components get mixed just before use,
and they they are so active they consume each other in just a few hours, or less.

Each of these developers needs testing to find how it'll compare to the original TMax D.P. developer.
Close, but adjustments are a good probablility.
