AMOS Professional native support for 2x16colors DualPlayfield ?

Hi,

I started play with the AmosProfessional source code from the marc365/AmosProfessional GIT repository ( available here : https://github.com/marc365/AMOSProfessional )

All the changes / comments I made are available in my own GIT for AmosProfessional ( main branch that contain finished work : https://github.com/AmiDARK/AMOSProfessional-X?organization=AmiDARK&organization=AmiDARK )

And I get good *integration* results :

These changes are not yet available in my main branch (AmiDARK one) but in the working branch 'Dual-Playfield' ( here : https://github.com/AmiDARK/AMOSProfessional-X/tree/Dual-Playfields ).

So everyone can test these changes.

Regards,
AmiDARK

@AmiDARK

I thought you was asking if AMOS has this support. So you are adding this support yourself?

That would be good. So in effect you are adding an AGA dual playfield mode?

Yes, the title was a bit confusing but it was chosen for that.
For people that may came and tell "no Amos cannot support AGA Dual playfield" and that may discover that now, it can ! And more to this, it can do this natively with its initial command set.

So yes, I've added support for AGA dual playfield in 2 fields of each 4 bitplanes (16 colors each) by modifying directly the AMOS.library Source code and recompiling it :)

I hope to be able to do more than this ... Dual playfield was the easier task but it helped me understand the mechanism under AMOS screens and copper list :)

Regards,

@AmiDARK

I think this is great, because if Screen Open can do 256 colors, then this means that Amos Kittens and Amos Pro will be more compatible, and it be more likely we see more colors in games.

@NutsAboutAmiga

Thank you for your comment :)

Adding AGA (8Bitplanes/256Colors) will be more difficult than adding 2x16colors dual playfield but I take the challenge ! :)
