I've been given a fully working ColourCard Gold for free to use with my
A5000. Looks like a Viewfinder-equivalent for RISC OS 3.1.
I just thought I'd gloat a bit. :-)
Major advantages so far are that the screen display doesn't break up
when accessing the floppy drive in ridiculously large 256-colour desktop
modes, and that my brand-new copy of Speak (see, some of us *do* spend
money on new software for RISC OS 3.1 machines!) no longer goes woozy
on the low notes in said screen modes.
Also, being able to run large 256-colour modes as standard. I've moved
up a notch from my old 1024x768 16-colour desktop to 1152x848, with the
option of going up another couple of notches before the desktop text
simply gets too small to read. The 3200x2400 mode is just silly :-)
Hmmm... I think I really need a 15" monitor. Unfortunately I've only
just bought this one! (Anyway, I haven't got room.)
Am I right in thinking that, from a practical point of view, only the
Publisher and Scanlight software is likely actually to recognise the
32,000-colour option? How much VRAM does this thing have on board
