As you can set the palette and then run any existing game, everything is supported.

The latest version of b-em supports it if you want to "try before you buy"
Yes indeed I had one of the first Nula’s.

But what I was looking for was a list of stuff people had actually enhanced, I was thinking of ideas for schools (to be posted in another post when I get around to it). And a videonula game machine sprung to mind. But due to limited time (same as most) I don’t want to either reinvent any wheels or put in lots of pallete changing effort.

So hence the question about a list, so I guess you and Rob have just started the list. :)

Just to add to tricky's summary, I've modded Killer Gorilla, Hunchback and Dare Devil Denis to use 16 colours. Stewart (sbadger) modded Galaforce.

I've tried to put the demos and modded games in the support pack but it needs updating as it's missing Frogger and a couple of other demos.
So the list is in effect the demo pack at the moment + frogger. That could be enough for what I sort of hand in mind.

We need the videonula prince or persea :)

That would be awesome!

I have another demo/project on the go but it's in the very early stages. Feel free to PM me if you want more details :wink:

I've finally got round to updating the support pack. I've included the MMC compatible versions of the Bitshifters gallery demos, the updated Spectrum emulator and tricky's NULA enhanced Frogger. The link is still: https://tinyurl.com/y75cmrxe

(Don't be put off by the February 2018 in the name - I kept it like that to ensure Dropbox preserved the link.)

Hi Rob, that's the old version of galaforce in the pack, there is a newer one with nula loading screen in the thread.

Ah - sorry I missed that (and it's a great loading screen too!). I've now updated the pack to include the latest version.

It's available under the same link.

Thanks,

Rob
