Looking for grayscale packages
« on: May 28, 2009, 09:48:16 pm »
I admit it. I feel rather lazy, but I *have* tried to use Google to look for these things with little or no luck.

What are the more popular 4lv grayscale packages out there and, if possible, a link to them.

( The purpose of getting one of these packages is NOT to actually copy and paste them. I need to have a look at them to figure out how they work so I can implement a version of it myself. The grayscale used in CaDan just won't cut it for the bigger project... )

All grayscale kits from Omnimaga that are located in the "Our TI/PC products" section are for Omnicalc, xLIB and Celtic III.

The best one would be Jim E revolution grayscale package, but it was on Revsoft, which is gone. The other one is from Duck, but it's slower, as it was the first gs attempt on calc and Idk if it's still on Maxcoderz, since they trashed their downloads 3 years ago. You might want to ask tr1p1ea or calc84maniac if theirs are finished. Maybe they could hand you a copy or help you. Or you could e-mail Jim E on Maxcoderz, but I am unsure if he will respond right away

If you want a very extensive talk on how it works then check out tr1p1ea's response on MaxCoderz.: http://www.junemann.nl/maxcoderz/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2692

It gives a bit of history, explains the advantages and disadvantages of some of the processes, and also gives an in-depth explanation of how interlacing achieves greyscale.
There are 10 types of people in this world-- those that can read binary, and those that can't.

For "modern" ones there is RGP and GGP. Actually there one more lib. (not worth I think) And other programs that do gray...
RGP is better but it never had a complete release. But the betas are very usable and has the essential. Jim e's code is easier to follow that GPP, I think. At least I understood Jim's.

For GPP see ticalc and RGP, I have most packages jim e released in Revsoft. I can zip to you.
I did a bit use of jim e pack... tr1p1ea has its own routines and he will be releasing code for the rewritten Desolate. (basically talk to him)


And more than seeing code, could be good to see some posts in Maxcoderz... Revsoft had too. At night I can show the links.

He sometimes visits most TI forums and leave some replies. ;)
Also he is a "successful" coder. Most well know projects are xLib and Desolate.

Thanks for the information. The most useful thing to me was Halifax's post, which contained a link to how 4 level grayscale is achieved.

Again, Thanks!
