AnyMode

Post by JonAbbott » Thu Feb 02, 2017 10:30 am

Written by Steve Harrison...

AnyMode does away for the need to use 'mode definition files' on RISC OS 5 on the RPi. It simply allows any screen mode X and Y resolution to be used automatically. Try entering a mode using any dimension in the DisplayManager, and providing X is divisible by 16 and Y is divisible by 2, then the mode will work!

Download AnyMode from http://www.pi-star.co.uk/anymode

It works because the RPi graphics processor fits and scales (if necessary) all graphics output to suit the attached monitor - so monitor-specific mode definition files are completely redundant. AnyMode will not load or run on any other RISC OS hardware - only the RPi.

Indeed, which is why I've hosted the local copy above.

Are the sources available somewhere?

It happens that during the tests I noticed that in 64K mode on the PI 3 the mode flags reported is 0x80 instead of the 0x4080 that should be reported since PI 3 use RGB instead of the standard BGR for 64K.

Probably best to PM Steve (steve3000) via stardot.org.uk and ask directly. I expect he'll want to fix it and release an update.
