Hi.
It’s something like that; in 4 colour mode (360 x 256) the index colour is simply each 2 bits group (00, 01, 10, 11 are 0, 1, 2, 3 respectively). Same for 16 colour mode (180 x 256).
In attribute mode (360 x 256), reads 16 bits; 8 for attribute (4 background, 4 foreground) and 8 for bitmap. It’s similar to Spectrum / Timex, MSX, Thomson, etc. where you have only 2 colours in each 8x1 block, but could use all 16 colours at the same time without rasters at the same resolution as the 4-colour mode. It also facilitates ports from those platforms.
Nice ! i love the simplicity (not in conception i suppose) and power of the 4 colors mode, do you plan to distribute this card ? does it will need modifcation of the PCW ? do you estimate the cost of the modification ?
"NOP" is the perfect program : short , fast and (known) bug free

It’s just a prototype at this moment; I’m using a cheap FPGA board (about $10, link) and using about 1% of it.
I don’t think I’ll publish a finished version in the near future because I want to make a bus interface, integrate DK’Sound, HDMI, ... But if you want to experiment by yourself I can send you the code, instructions, etc.

no problem, i'll wait , my PCWs are well protected in their boxes and i don't have time and space actually to get them out.BTW, are you the guy who made a fast RAM expansion for PCW ?
