A500 16 colour screenshot - YAM and colourfonts
A500 16 colour screenshot - YAM and colourfonts
Previous Image | Next Image
Description: The point of this screenshot is to show what can be done with colourfonts. Usually you're limited by what background you can pick because if it's too dark you can't see the black text and if it's too light you can't see the white text (why does MUI use "shine" instead of "highlight"??). So I made a white font with black outline and black font with white outline (using ColorType). Now I can pick whatever background I want and text will still be readable. Colourfonts are slightly slower than regular fonts, but in an email program it's not much of a problem.

This screenshot was taken on my Amiga 500, 16 colour NTSC highres-laced, 660x436, WB 3.1.

@ mr_500

Thats why they Don't call you A500, but Mr. "A" Five Hundred :-)


Don't fret about Amikit....they are great....Just talk to them and I am sure the issue will be resolved.............but then again, if you got an A1200, there is no hope for OCS users to see whats possible on A500's.

You should make an AmigaSYS/AmigaKit type of thing for OCS users so their interfaces could look lik yours.

You never seize to amaze me what is possible with an A500. And you never seize to make me feel sorry that I ever sold mine...

I really wonder what you will will push out an A1200 if you will lay your hands on one


Thanks, McVenco. :-)

Unfortunately, I never will lay my hands on an A1200. I ordered one from Amigakit last year, NOS with accelerator and USB and wireless ethernet - all ordered online, ready for final confirmation. Amigakit just delayed and delayed and delayed and repeatedly didn't do what he said he'd do.

I haven't gotten any response for about 5 months. So now I'm sick of the whole thing and don't even feel like getting an A1200 now. That's the main reason I haven't logged onto any Amiga sites for the last 3 months.

Actually, I had a hack on my A1200 for the M1438S Mikrovitec monitor - I ran it at 1024x768 for a while... 'course it ate Chip RAM like Homer at an all-you-can-eat night, and the interlace was horrendous, but it did it...
I went down to a quite pleasant 800x600 after that.

Mr_A500:

I think your screenshots are amazing.  If Commodore had hired you as a designer perhaps things would have turned out differently.  Great work, man.
