Recently, I started a development project on the Atari Falcon. Getting up and running was a serious challenge. Among the more difficult aspects of this challenge was figuring out how initialize the Falcon graphics hardware and push pixels onto the screen. Now that I have gotten over that hurdle, I'd like to offer my fellow beginners some guidance.
Attached is a Pure C project and source file that do pretty much exactly as I described above. They set the screen up for 320x240 true color mode and cycle through the colors, painting the entire screen at each iteration. This code was compiled on Aranym and run tested on both Hatari and a real Falcon. The compiled PRG is included as well.
