Re: How to use more than 4 colors in this context.

I corrected the image. :oops: Is it normal that can not get the 16 colors in 68K with the LINE A :?: Not answering your question, because I learned to avoid LINE A at any cost – if you target only original STs, then going down to the hardware is faster. If you want to avoid direct hardware access, ...

Where can he be acquired?


Currently, none of the Alt-RAM solutions for the MegaSTE are sold as ready-to-go-kits, AFAIK. Either wait a bit, or tell the authors you’re interested, or re-create your own one out of schematics.
