That's caused by a limitation of the Amiga SDL port. The Amiga SDL port is built around the cybergraphics.library, which doesn't map 1:1 to the P96 screen modes. This is especially visible in the 32 Bit RGB modes, where ARGB,BGRA,RGBA etc. pp. can be supported by the graphics card. Problem is: only a subset of these variants is used* in the Amiga SDL port to write the pixels onto the screen.

*also a limitation of the respective cybergraphics call.

Bottom line: Wholesale screen mode support would require a rewrite of parts of the SDL port specifically for Picasso96.

All the elites run/ran CGX anyway. None of this P96 stuff. ;-)

So there is no chance to make it work on P96 for now?

edit: i am working on a port to completely remove SDL from the code

Yup, I got 320x240 in all possible variants - 8, 16, 24 and 32bit defined. PicassoAPI.library has version number 2.310, so it's Picasso96 2.1e I think... or something near.

PS It can be open-sourced, but beer is always a beer ;-)

Hi Lantus,
thanks for your great work.
when do you think a new version will be available ???
Could you make an aga version even if it's just playable on winuae for the moment ??? It could be a great test for saga (new aga enhanced vampire cgx) developpers.
For converting the music in mod, adrdesign http://eab.abime.net/member.php?u=48665 did great job for others conversions perhaps you should try to contact him.

About music conversion i can point to the work of TurricanEd, he did a pretty good port of the Outrun songs!

Can't get it to display properly either. I made sure I had 24-bit screen modes in 320x200, 320x240 and 320x256.

Hi MVG...

After Pressing F5 to get into options menu, what button allows you to select the settings?
