That's really cool, too bad about the OS ram thing. Did you see the multithreading they had there though? cool!

I can't imagine how hard it must be to have interrupt-based grayscale while the TI-OS is running. So much stuff to watch out for ???

I think that was part of the problem with it. It didn't perfectly avoid TI-OS, so TI-OS occasionally crashed because of it.

Yeah. I remember after I released Reuben Quest: The Lost Mirror, someone e-mailed me a program he was working on that did something similar, for use in BASIC games for grayscale, supposedly better than Omnicalc's grayscale (at the time xLIB APP didn't exist), and it kept crashing all the time.

Wow, backgrounds are possible... And it looks great! Too bad it crashes.

Is it possible to do it stably?

That's a good question. I think custom interrupts would have to be used as well as RAM areas that are never used during TI-OS execution.

So it would get killed by certain routines, right?

Unless there was a hook to reenable that interrupt...

We really should try :D
