4096 Colors

Daniël Mantione

Well, personally I'm not sure if 4096 colour HAM6 is superior to a mode with 256 out of 16 million colours. The number of unique colours possible on the screen is obviously higher, but only 6 bit fidelity is a major drawback and the loss in horizontal detail comes in addition to that.

On the Amiga it was a different story, because the Amiga could display only 64 colours in bitplane mode, so HAM6 was a welcome addition to display photo-realistic pictures. For the Mega65 on the other hand, which can do 256 colours in textmode and bitplane mode, I am not so sure if it adds anything usefull.
