Extended Desktop

Postby JoeAtari » Sat Nov 01, 2014 6:09 am

I have a "mirrored" desktop with dvi and vga working. What settings will produce the extended desktop like we see in the #5 demo on YouTube? Thanks!

Woops. Well, it turnes out I have disabled that feature for the last few releases, because my original implementation was based on a bad idea. Originally this was handled in Vsetscreen()/VsetMode(), i.e. setting a single modecode changed the resolution on both screens. That's generally a bad idea. I intended to move this feature to SVSCREEN.SYS, but somehow I forgot to finish the change.

Deeply sorry about this, I forgot all about it - you'll get the extended desktop back in the next driver release.
Ain't no space like PeP-space.

When does the next driver release come? There are just so few new Atari things to look forward to for me! Thanks so much!
