Hey everyone. I wanted a way to know what values correspond to the various colors available on the A8. I hunted around for a while trying to find a program that showed them to me as I was pretty sure I had seen something before. Anyway, I didn't find what I wanted so I started writing something in BASIC. But as I started to code it in BASIC I realized it is actually less tedious in many ways to code it in Action!
It's a simple program that adjusts the hue and luminance of the screen border based on user key entry in the form of increment or decrement. It's compiled with the Action! RTL, so it is ready to run on most any Atari 8-bit computer. No Action! cartridge required.
I have ARCed the executable, along with my source code. Hopefully it's useful to someone else besides myself too. But it was fun to code in any event.
