Re: Mode 7 BBC4W

Well this works.....(without backgrounds). It would be cool to get the middle strip to run 2x characters faster and the bottom one 4 x characters faster...like a parallax scroll effect.....if anyone can suggest how to do that.....I think that will be my last question of the night you will be relieve...

Re: Mode 7 BBC4W

Ok I tried with a plain teletext screen - it just doesn't like that background colour control code. The first 1 is VDU 28,1,24,39,0 The 2nd is VDU 28,2,24,39,0 The 3rd is VDU 28,1,24,39,0 None of them work ( well no1 works but the background paper gets destroyed but in theory it works) I'll just hav...

Re: Mode 7 BBC4W

Hi Richard. Well normally in my teletext pictures I use about 3 characters for colours on the left ( that is a coloured background then a coloured graphic ). If you set the viewport 3 characters into the image from the left - it just blanks out the image as it scrolls - it does not wrap around. I ju...
