Videl Inside - 800x600 @ 256 colors setting

Postby wongck » Sun May 10, 2009 3:20 pm

I can get 800x600 @ 16 colours on my Falc easily using Videl Inside 2.1.
When I tried to set it to 800x600 @ 256 colours, it complained something in French and does not change.
Anyone knows how to change it to 800x600 @ 256 colours?
Thanks.

Hi,

Not sure ??

Are you using an accelerated Falcon?

You will most probably need to increase the refresh rate when upping the colour output?

i'll try and llok out my old Blow Up Setup file. With all the resolutions I achieved on it. ( I had Power Up2 fitted though!)

Thanks

Previously no, now yes. :D

Previously, I was already using VI2 and want 256 colours. I couldn't get it (same problem) and left it at 16 colours.
Now that I am using CT63, may be the speed increase will compensate for the speed decrease in using 256.
So I am keen on getting 256 colours on my Falc now.

The message simply confirms the change you've made then tells you that you have to select the 640x480x256 colours mode in the GEM desktop (bureau = desktop).

OK, thanks for the translation.
So it does not allow me to change from 800x600x16 to 800x600x256.
Looks like it cannot change on the fly.
I have to save the setting & do a reboot.

I will see if it works.

Thanks.

Yeap that works.
I don't believe that it was so simple :oops:

Just select the 800x600x256c and then press save, then reboot.
When it startup, it's goes to 800x600x256c. :lol:

I would have done that if I had synergy (http://synergy2.sourceforge.net/) on my atari.
May be there is; but did not find it.

Anyway, switching my KVM too many time across 2 screen confuses me, I couldn't copy/type the text into babblefish.

Actually I rather use babblefish (not because my previous company created it) but it is more stable than the google translator.
The google translator keeps spawning windows (may be it's my firewall issue??).
