In the course of making 8088 MPH, I wrote a program for converting arbitrary sRGB images to data for displaying on an IBM CGA card in various different modes and palettes. I have continued to develop this program (on and off) ever since. It's still not finished (there are a bunch of controls which don't do anything yet) but in the modes that are working I think it does a pretty nice job of showing off just what CGA is capable of. Here are some of the best results that I've come up with, in the course of development/testing.
I believe that all of these can be displayed (and will look pretty much as shown here) on a IBM PC 5150 with 4.77MHz i8088 and IBM CGA card, but some require more sophisticated code than others to display.
Please feel free to add your own favourite CGA images to the thread, whether they were created with CGAArt or some other way.
