Chocky, you missed my point. I was saying that 32k colours was generally preferable on VRPC to 16m or 256colours. Average users would most likely assume 256 colours would be faster than 32000, but (certainly in desktop apps), 32000 gives best performance level. This was really advice for potential RISCube/A6 customers, so they get the best out of their computers. 16million works nicely too, BUT 32000 gives best performance (at least in the tests I have run here).

  • RISC OS 5 pictured running on ARM Cortex-A8 kit
    Picture exclusive - This grainy photograph shows a port of RISC OS 5, sourced from the RISC OS Open project, running on a Beagleboard - a device powered by a 600MHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor with a built-in graphics chip. The port, developed by Jeffrey Lee with help from Uwe Kall and ROOL staff, is seen as a major breakthrough for the shared-source project as it proves the OS can be ported to new hardware without the need for a large team of engineers.
