What is fvdi for?

Postby mzry » Tue Jan 16, 2018 6:55 am

I noticed fvdi is used a lot in stuff like beekey/beepi, firebee etc etc... What does it do? Why would you need it & NVDI at the same time?

Thx

fVDI is the screen driver for hardware that's not compatible with a real ST/Falcon/TT.

NVDI provides both screen drivers (unused when running on unsupported hardware) and fonts/printer drivers.
