That would be great. To stand so close to the edge of such an amazing upgrade is truely hard to comprehend. I'm sure that, one way or another, a C128 patch will follow the '64 release and render this whole problem obsolete, especially since Ms. Ellsworth has already put in support for it (VDC). The first program I hope to see supporting it would be some sort of image viewer. Patches for GEOS to be able to use some of these modes would be great also. Getting a higher horizontal resolution out of GEOS is no problem -- vertical resolutions higher than 255 may be tough, however, on the existing architecture. My compatibility question still stands, however. Does anyone know how it interfaces? Will it behave as a C64 cart? That is, forcing a C128 into '64 mode, but working otherwise fine? I heard some mention that it would need to be patched onto the '64 motherboard in some specific way... is that still so? - Bo -----Original Message----- From: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]On Behalf Of Professor Dredd Sent: Tuesday, May 01, 2001 6:14 AM To: email@example.com Subject: RE: Video Card Update. Bo, If I had the necessary programming skill to patch or re-write these programs I would do it. Really, I'm bogged down rewriting programs to work on my CMD hardware. It is my hope that programmers will be able to take up the challenge. Isn't there a fellow rewriting GEOWrite 128 to use the Wheels Kernal? Didn't Maurice hack Flight Sim II to run from a RAMLink? Aren't there folks hacking games to run on SuperCPU? If you really value these programs and want them to take advantage of new hardware, I suggest you start disassembling. That's what I do, anyway. Some I get to work and some I don't. As for GEOS/Wheels, it is up to Maurice to decide what hardware his OS will support. As I see it, Wheels and especially Wave would benefit ENORMOUSLY from the advanced graphics and acceleration offered by Jeri's card. I HOPE he will give it serious consideration. _________________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
