Post by: jevicac on 23:28, 11 August 17
Good afternoon, our friend HabiSoft, is testing a fpga board to give Amstrad PCW color. Here you have the link

Do you think it deserves to create a board?

We can play in color any game of our Amstrad PCW

I guess this is different to the pcw16 or the "arnold number two" in operation?

The images belong to a PCW8256. This is in evidence. 16 colors can be obtained. The color change is automatic through the fpga board

The board looks actually great!  :) On the other hand, I can only wonder what kind of hardcore solo-party lover would find that Strip Poker videogame sexually arousing. It probably had its audience, though.

Our friend HabiSoft prepares the new version of the emulator CP/M Box for PCW's color. Some images.

is there information about how this interface operates?

It's still in development, but basically takes the video signal as a bitstream and every two bits give 1 of 4 color or every 4 bits give 1 of 16 colors.

When I looked at the pictures I did think it was done this way. In some of the pictures it is obvious there was some automatic method being used, because some looked like colours from "artifacts" showing hi-res pictures on a ntsc/pal display (same way PC does it).

It's also easy to see that the graphics were ported from CGA or EGA versions.
