Back on topic:
Attached is a "lite" version of the composite CGA patch, which may be more suitable for the dev team to commit, as previously discussed. (Qbix?)
No new config options or machine types; only two extra key mappings compared to official DOSBox:
- F12: set composite output - auto/on/off (default=auto)
- Ctrl+Alt+F11: select CGA model (early/late, aka "old/new")
There hasn't been much to add on the composite emulation front lately, but a couple more games have turned up that really call for artifact colors in mode 4 (see the other two attachments), which drove me to revisit this once again.
This "lite" patch takes away some of the fine-tuning options such as brightness -- not really a concern for most games, but if a full monitor patch is ever implemented in the future, all of those extra controls would optimally be incorporated into that.
[Moderators: is there any way to have this visible in the Patches forum? after all, a working patch buried beneath 27 pages of discussion isn't too easy to find.]
