I get black and white bars in the 'green & purple' areas when I try it with
a CoCo 3 too, but my CoCo 1 shows very definite green and purple - even when
hooked up to the exact same TV.
It appears some CoCos show very different colors than others. It may also
depend on the model of TV you use as well. That's why I'm trying to figure
out if the green and purple are consistent, or reversed on some CoCo models.
If we're going to simulate complex artifact colors in CoCo emulators, I want
to make sure I get it right!
So, the currently collected data is:
Model box 1 box 2 box 3 box 4
-------------- --------- --------- --------- ---------
CoCo 3 red B&W blue B&W
CoCo 2 red pale-blue blue pale-red
CoCo 1 red green blue purple
CoCo 1 purple B&W green B&W
Anyone else? Please, if you have a CoCo 1 - let me know which four colors
appear on your TV and what order they appear in:
20 FORY=48TO143:FORX=(Y AND1)+65TO191STEP4
