Software-driven Graphics Modes For The Atari 8-bit Computers

This article describes software driven graphics modes for the Atari 8-bit computers. That is, graphics displays reliant on CPU intervention and additional software that enhance the inherent capabilities of the Atari 8-bit computers' ANTIC and CTIA/GTIA graphics chips. These modes use combinations of mixed display lists, scrolling, page flipping, and display list interrupts to achieve displays with alternate resolution and increased color that are not possible using the hardware alone.

Famous quotes containing the word modes:

    The human condition is such that pain and effort are not just symptoms which can be removed without changing life itself; they are the modes in which life itself, together with the necessity to which it is bound, makes itself felt. For mortals, the “easy life of the gods” would be a lifeless life.
    Hannah Arendt (1906–1975)
