With the help of my old TC2048 manual, I had a little fun working with the Timex 512x192 mode from Basic.
Nothing extraordinary, just trying to write to screen sequentially
Code: Select all
1 OUT 255,62 10 FOR N=16384 TO 22527 20 POKE N,127 21 POKE 8192+N,127 30 NEXT N
Another interesting note is the list of colours available for the Highres mode.
OUT 255,6 = black,white
OUT 255,14 = blue,yellow
OUT 255,22 =red,cyan
OUT 255,30 = magenta,green
OUT 255,38 = green, magenta
OUT 255,46 = cyan,red
OUT 255,54 = yellow,blue
OUT 255,62 = white,black
I wonder if it would be possible to do "multicolour" or simulate attributes in some way by changing the mode in machine code?
The combinations are not that great but with a well prepared image, it may look good...
I'd really like to know if this is possible!
