Richard> !!!!! Richard> Um, is it April 1st in your part of the world, or Richard> something?!? Heheh, nope :) Some more data: The demo:ed prototype runs in 512x400, 640x480, 800x600 and 1024x768. It plugs into the SID socket and utilizes unused SID registers. Video is addressed as 8x8 cards where each card can use 4 colours from a palette of 4096. The prototype that broke down a couple of days before the EXPO did 24-bit, but it required a bit of external logic as she only has an 84-pin FPGA to work with and she didn't have time to implement that. It has one sprite with a freely selectable resolution but this wasn't demo:ed. Also, the screen contained garbage as she didn't have any software to use the card, and there was a palette bug that she hadn't worked out yet. I gave her the subscribe information for cbm-hackers so hopefully she'll be able to tell you everything about the project herself. -- ___ . . . . . + . . o _|___|_ + . + . + . .
