I was thinking what this section is for, now I have a first game that behaves differently under emulator and on the real ST machine.
I just discovered this game and the manual, which is quite a piece of interesting read. I can play the game on `Hatari' emulator alright, when copied to floppy, I experience one missing colour in background, it is `ready room' screen, grey is missing, `pilot cockpit dashboard', grey is missing. Grey colour is not rendered in pictures probably.
I have tried many archive images of the same game, no difference, grey missing in screens.
Many thanks, Tom
Grey is missing - and what color is there then instead it ?
I keep `Hatari' reflecting real ST machine, so the config is the same for both.
RainBow TOS v1.04
Floppy, no HD
Blitter ON/OFF - has no difference
Gray is rendered as Black in `menu screen', `ready room', `pilot cockpit' screens, only on real ST machine.
Please look for the difference in pictures?
Landing deck, Battle ship turrets.
It may well be the case, although I doubt as the darkish gray appears as normal black.
Not the case with other games. The game engine seems decompressing images before putting them into display buffer, perhaps if, if I can somehow manage to touchup game image gray in a drawing tool, compress them again (not sure how), and save back to the game image?
I have turned monitor brightness quite up, black now appears as dark grey where it should, black remains black, so I can at least tell two colours appart, but my eye site suffers.
EDIT, now contrast slightly up, so the brightness, better now.
So I dismissed The idea of modifying game pictures, seems silly.
