I checked out this page, and also the one regarding VDC video modes. I believe I can answer the question posed there. You ask "Why would anyone want VDC modes? They suck!" True enough about the VDC mode sucking, perhaps. However, a very large number of serious Commodore hobbiests have long abandoned their breadbox C64's for C128s of various stripes. The request for VDC video modes is for one principle reason: a dire hope for a C128 version of this card. Simple! To be sure, most Commodore users in general are C64 owners. However, without any data to back up the following claim, I would almost venture to say that the great majority of your target market, namely Power Commodore Users, use C128s. These users are enthusiastic about the card whether it is C128 compatible or not, simply because they assume they will be able to use it with the C64 mode of their C128. That doesn't keep them from hopeing, however. Of course, this entire essay is extremely biased, as I am one of those people. Which is why the burning question in my mind is: Will I have to go pull a breadbox C64 out of storage to use your card? - Bo > > Hi, > > For those interested I posted a little news > about > > the video cards SDRAM controller and different > modes. > > > > Jeri > > http://www.geocities.com/cm_easy/ > > > > > - > This message was sent through the cbm-hackers > mailing list. > To unsubscribe: echo unsubscribe | mail firstname.lastname@example.org. __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
