Well, it all sounded so plausible to me ;) Some of you might remember the 'Magic Colour Chars' program once released by the 64er. It featured a basic-extension, which allowed stupid users like me to use more colours (Using interlaced colours) and rainbow-characters. Nothing really fancy, but it looked kinda cute, at the expense of a *lot* of CPU power. My C64 always smelled a bit when I used it - or at least I thought it smelled, just like the badly designed 'tech-tech' effect I once did, (ab)using the D016. -- Martijn van Buul - Pino@dohd.org - http://www.stack.nl/~martijnb/ Geek code: G-- - Visit OuterSpace: mud.stack.nl 3333 Kees J.
