Re: SMC_TT Network MiNT Driver ...

if you have sources (NetBSD & TUW) then you are halfway there 50%. And you already know that the ur card is working on NetBSD, so that is another 25%. even experienced programmers at some point have to hit a learning curve for Network Drivers. Lots of notes are needed, until you are able to unde...

Re: Programmers Palettes

I added the Dawnbringer16 palette no long after that post, but I ran across a (temporary) issue while constructing scripts to create a VDI palette file. a) I dont have a default.vdi.pal to play with (I can construct one from the GPL I made years ago, but it wont be accurate VDI values, yet) b) Arnie...

Re: Programmers Palettes

OK, for anyone interested .. here is a modified version of a shell script (incl CygWin) that will output the Dawnbringer16 as VDI color palette. NOTE that it only generates the number of colors found in the GiMP palette file (.gpl), not the full 256, and it does not remap them to the AtariST color o...

re: .PAL I worked it out - 256 VDI colors: RGB, 0-1000 as 2 bytes per channel I will probably have to create new sets, to re-order the color index of Dawnbringer16 palette inline with the Default/NVDI one, so they are visually compatible.

Re: 290 pixel fonts

nice job thanks (also to Sometimes-99 for creating them)

for anyone who does not already know, the following can be used to generate .TTF pixel fonts, not limited to 8x8:

could use it to add a few more .GIF fonts if you wanted

would it not be better (in this case) to provide timer="normal" as sub option for fast-forward (defaults to timer="fast-forward"or "sync"). I can see where sometimes it might be useful
