November 11 SCCAN meeting

Revival Studio's Mayhem on screen
Matt D. concentrates on Avalanche for the VIC-20

Though I had brought the SX-64 with SuperCPU and the AmigaOne XE G4, at the Nov. 11 Southern California Commodore & Amiga Network meeting we concentrated on the new games for the VIC-20, the NTSC versions of Avalanche and Mayhem from Revival Studios.  Fun!  Hopefully, member Matt D. will have a new bit of hardware to use with the VIC-20 for the January SCCAN meeting!

C128 VGA adapter development continues

After a long wait, the engineer on the C128 VGA adapter came back with good news. He recalculated resistor values and installed new resistors on the board. Now the 16 colors on the screen are brighter while still maintaining accuracy! This is what the engineer said, "...the color palette [is based] on the description of IBM CGA at . My new resistor values should represent this very accurately (with about 0.5% deviation, vs. up to nearly 70% deviation with the original values)."
