Re: Three new video modes

OK - FFFFBBBBTTTTTTTT with foreground being RGBI and background being RGBI Doing the FLASH bit is too difficult in the given clocks. I recall you saying that this was likely to be the case - would of been nice but extra colours instead is good. Is it OK to have the memory arranged as TCTCTCTCTCT......

Re: Three new video modes

I'm going to do these video modes Spectrum Mode 2 Bpp RamTile mode (Tempest mode minus the background) 1 Bpp RamTile mode with background (Mix of Tempest Mode for the background and modified Mode-6) The point behind the two ramtile modes is to save flash.
