Looking for 256-color image slideshow disk


Recommended Posts

Ive seen the set of images shown here, along with a few others, linked together in various forum posts on the web, searching this morning on the APAC software approach to high-color on the A8 using various clever tricks.





Does anyone know where this or a similar slideshow can be downloaded as a disk image? Thanks.

Well, the shown pictures at atarionline are from Technicolour Dream demo/picture disks. You should know that there are various formats for Gr. 9 + 11 (256-colour) pictures, e.g.


- 80x96 pixels, non-interlaced (uncompressed 62 sectors), Paint 256 (dutch version by SAG)

- 80x96 pixels, non-interlaced (uncompressed, 62 sectors), Apac-2 (same as dutch Paint 256)

- 80x96 pixels, non-interlaced ? (uncompr., 62 sectors), Apac

- 80x119 (or a little less 80x112 ?, uncompressed and compressed, non-interlaced Technicolour Dream)

- 80x192 pixels, interlazed Pryzm (uncompressed 123 or 124 sectors)

- 80x192, interlaced Digi-Paint (uncompressed 123 sectors)

- 80x192, interlaced, Paint 256 (german version, Happy Computer magazine, uncompressed 123 sectors)

- 80x238 pixels, interlaced, Bug-Biter-Pictures (BGP, later BGA for Apac and BGC for CIN; compressed and uncompressed)

- 80x??? pixels, interlaced, Apac-3 (APC or AP3, compressed and uncompressed)

and various other formats.
