Graphics modes

  • 640 x 200 mode has colour attribute byte for each 8 pixels. Difference from Profi (computer) is that ATM has full 16 colour set for both ink and paper.
  • 320 x 200 mode (16 colours) is ordinary raster mode, but not similar to EGA (it is two-pixel chunky, not planar like EGA). Two games for this mode were converted directly from PC: Prince of Persia and Goblins (computer game), and one from Sony PlayStation: Time Gal. Some other games for this mode exist. The latter one is Ball Quest (August, 2006).
  • 256 x 192 ZX Spectrum mode.
  • Palette (16 colours from 64) is set for all modes.

    Models

    Many models exist. Models < v6.00 are called ATM 1, later models are called ATM 2(2+) or ATM Turbo 2(2+) or simply Turbo 2+.

    IDE is available since v6.00.JIO0UBH9BY8B9T7GVC6R

    The latest model is 7.18.

    OSes
