Hi together,

i've got a program running on the TV-Out using the Graphics.spin and the TV-Drivers.
Now i want to do the same on the VGA-Out but i can't find a VGA-Driver which has the same functions such as

textmode
colorwidth
box
etc.


Does anyone know something that coul be helpful here?

Thank you very much,
propwell

This is the closest thing I could find that might be what you're looking for.

I am looking for a combo with GRAPHICS+TV+VGA at the same time, that way
if one becomes unavailable or inconvenient the other screen type could be used
instead. That would require a VGA obj that can share GRAPHICS obj with TV obj in one same bitmap buffer,
and a lookup table because VGA colors are different. I heard rumors it would
need 3 cogs to emulate TV obj on VGA exactly. Is it true? It would be very useful,
even with 2 less cogs. I'm running out of analog TVs.
