Hi Rybags! Could it be possible to print this screen without the black bars? That should help do a 1 on 1 comparison with my palette and SeaGtGruff's.
You can try this program if you want... sorry, you'll have to type it in (but it's short), or maybe you can import it into an emulator as a "list" file from your hard drive:
10 REM * DISPLAY ALL 256 COLORS 11 GRAPHICS 9:FOR V=0 TO 15:COLOR V 12 FOR N=0 TO 4:PLOT 5*V+N,0 13 DRAWTO 5*V+N,191:NEXT N:NEXT V 14 D=256*PEEK(561)+PEEK(560) 15 FOR N=1 TO 16:READ V:POKE D+V,143 16 NEXT N:FOR N=0 TO 25:READ V 17 POKE 1664+N,V:NEXT N:POKE 512,139 18 POKE 513,6:POKE 546,128:POKE 547,6 19 POKE 53248,40:POKE 53249,208 20 POKE 53261,255:POKE 53262,255 21 POKE 53266,0:POKE 53267,0 22 POKE 54286,192 23 GOTO 23 24 DATA 16,28,40,52,64,76,88,102,114 25 DATA 126,138,150,162,174,186,198 26 DATA 8,72,169,0,133,203,104,40,76 27 DATA 95,228,8,72,165,203,24,105,16 28 DATA 141,26,208,133,203,104,40,64
By the way, I don't think I set the vertical blank vector using the "proper method" in this version of the program, so it will more often than not run correctly, but once in a while it starts up kind of funky if the VBV gets set during the VBI or something like that.
Also, here is a thread where we were talking about the colors a while back:
And here are some screenshots of other people's Ataris running my little program, from that thread:
BTW, SeaGtGruff, your Atari is an NTSC?
Yes, it is.
