TT Video modes

Postby Televicious » Fri Nov 16, 2018 9:28 am

I read when the ST core was starting that a 640x480 16 color mode or even possibly a 1024x768 color mode was being developed. Did any of the TT video modes make it to the ST core yet? Was thinking of running some of these new fangled Multitasking OS's on there to avoid filename issues and such and was wondering if it has to be 640x400 monochrome just to be usable. Would be so nice to have a high res color mode and some MiNT.

Not yet sure what you ask about exactly. The most useable video modes on the Atari TT are "TT mid res" (640 * 480 in 16 colors) and "TT high res" (1280 * 960 in monochrome). Certain OS extensions are normally familar with different video modes and are not limited to ST high res. :)

Yea I was just wondering if 640x480 16 color was supported or even 1280x960 dualchrome/monochrome. Guess I'll just have to try different OS's and find out.

Ok I figured it out, Viking sm194 is the mono 1280x960 and just put the drivers in the auto folder. I wonder what kind of expansion can be done through the cartridge rom reader or if other graphics card mods could be configured. Crazy high res that viking is.
