I'm hoping that someone more knowledgeable about scanning frequencies can help me get an LCD Monitor to work with my Falcon 030 and BlowUp Hard 1.
I have two BenQ 19" LCD monitors that are several years old. They both support the same display modes, which are shown in the table below.
The only one of these modes that I've been able to display with BlowUp H1 on one of these monitors so far is 640x480.
I can select from several higher resolution modes using BLOWCONF.PRG, for example 800x600, but when I try to display them the monitor shows the message "Unsupported Mode!" and remains blank.
I believe that the problem is that the clock frequency that BlowUp Hard 1 provides (using the "old" joystick port) is not sufficient for these BenQ monitors. According to the manual that came with BlowUp, they also made a BlowUp Hard 2 for the Falcon that connected to the newer controller port. This provided a higher clock frequency and allowed larger screen resolutions, if I understand correctly.
I would like to use one of these BenQ monitors if possible. Is there a product available today that I can use to get 800x600 or better resolution on one of these BenQ LCD monitors? Or should I give up the idea of using these monitors, and find one that provides higher res modes that accept lower frequencies?
I appreciate the help.
