I've just uploaded another small update to PaletteEd, fixing the all-black menus, and adding colour recognition. The colour recognition causes a bit of a slowdown when selecting colours on a slow...

It would be very simple to produce a small add-on module with just a mixer on it, based on any one of a number of designs already out there. Maybe I'll look into this shortly if nothing else shows up.

Sounds very odd. Can you write programs from scratch and have them work? What version of Blitz is it? Is it from the 2.1 floppies, or the Blitz CD or where?

Or, you could take it as it is - a music decoder card, much like the MAS player but greatly improved. And yes, other programs do support MHI. If you want AHI, get a sound card, not a music decoder.

I find this a little confusing... To emulate 4MB of chip RAM? It most certainly can be done - as I said, WinUAE lets you emulate up to 8MB, and has done for many years.
