Re: Chroma 81 - SCART and Colour interface for the ZX81

so i guess this might work somehow (i’m going to test it soon on Boriel’s ZX-Basic Compiler): for eee=0 to 767 seed=smsrnd(seed) dfile=peek uinteger(16396) poke dfile+$8000+eee,seed next another question: the colours available from chroma81 are those like from zx-spectrum’s bright 1 (or bright 0)?

A description of the colour modes can be found at the end of the document available from here . i guess it is where it says "Colour Attribute File [Colour Mode 1] (appears in memory map between $C000-$FFFF, at DFILE+$8000)" so if we poke randomly between 0xC000 and 0xFFFF we will have some colour a...
