Paint program that runs in gem/with graphics card

Postby Silly_Pony » Wed Aug 22, 2018 10:35 pm

Got myself a nova setup and want something to put its 256 colours to work. Having trouble finding any paint programs that aren't locked to ST LOW.

Any suggestions?

Graftool should work i think. Runs at least in aranym with fvdi driver, which is similar to having a graphic card.

D2M from parx.fr, commercial, difficult to find now (a demo on this ftp: d2m.zip, v2.60). Use modules named M&E (GIF, PIx, IMG...).
Still using it for pixel/bitmap work (games graphics conversion). Same feeling as old Degas Elite. Good zoom mode. Crashes if video mode not supported (modern pixel-packed screenmode), but I think NOVA is supported by the TRM module.

Photoline can also utilize GDPS drivers if device is installed. Two are available, for Epson and MicroTek brands.
Guessing this is in a TT, Photoline has support for FPU. The two drivers above support SCSI. Wonder if the new TT VME USB support cards, and legacy software, can see a command compatible USB scanner as a SCSI device?

Vision, hate to say it, my Afterburner Falcon has been down for some time, and haven't had time to enjoy the latest version.
Thank you :)

Hi Rusty,

Do you mean. Vision.is not working on your afterburner falcon? If so can you please give me some details like VISION version, resolution, what happens, etc.
Btw, latest VISION outpouts info to vision.log which could help.
Cheers, Jean

No no, sorry. The last time I had my Falcon working with a NOVA is my Afterburner. Has been some years now since this machine had been used. Vision worked fine then. I have not a Falcon ready to use your new version :)
Thanks you :)

Thanks for suggestions, all. Going to try them all out, see what I like best. Just opened Vision, seems nice, familiar to me from using MS paint - just confused how to zoom out again after zooming in.

Hi Silly_Pony,

just use numeric pad:
+:Zoom in
-: Zoom out
or use direct levels 0 (x1) to 4 (x16)

or from "Extra" menu

Have fun!
