TOS Variants

Post by KLund1 »

In the Wiki there is a section that describes the different TOS versions. It might be good to add variants to each version.
Example: 2.06US & 2.06UK. Is the difference, just a couple words spelled different, or are there other things..

There is difference in initial framerate in color mode: PAL versions, so UK has 50 Hz, and US, of course 60 Hz. It is in early boot stage.

In NEWDESK.INF ? Or DESKTOP.INF. As I know there is no framerate at all (maybe only on Falcon ?) . And it is logical. Framerate is not much Desktop related.

All it is not some problem - switching framerate is easy, and can be done before floppy boot too with proper SW.
