Looking for 1200XL startupdisplay as a file

Recommended Posts



I like the 1200XL startup screen with the ATARI sign and the rainbow colors. Is there a file version available, if yes where? Just to have it as a "demo".






still working on the SIO2USB Shell...

made my own (after taking a peek - or to be precise several PEEKs) into the 1200XL OS

here you go:



have fun.


Hey, that's pretty good. I tried it on my 1200xl and had to boot with a basic cart in just to be sure it was your's vs the original. The only difference I can see is yours has the ATARI sitting slightly higher on the screen. Can you post the source code for that?

Nice, but - the "rainbow effect" is done to death.


A much better effect is to increment then decrement the value within each high nybble value to give the effect as used in the Gauntlet title screen.


ie - cycle the colour values as:


A0 thru AF... AF thru A0... B0 thru BF... BF thru B0 etc etc.


It takes a little more programming effort but the result is well worth it.

put the logo on the right hight on the screen and added the source to the disk image. Just click the link above.


@Rybags: you're right, the rainbow effect was well overdone in the past. All I wanted was the startup screen of the 1200XL as a file. I'll try your suggestion with the color changing when I find time. Thanks for the idea!


Best Regards!
