Hi, from what we known as Bitmap Multicolor Mode here:
http://www.unige.ch/medecine/nouspikel/ti99/tms9918a.htm
i could not see the difference with the regular multicolor mode .

Is this mode supported on openMSX?

It's not a new mode, it's just the regular tile mode where all the 3 banks are filled with tiles in their numerical order.
. bank 1 filled with tiles 0-255
. bank 2 filled with tiles 0-255
. bank 3 filled with tiles 0-255
And of course, the same is done on the color banks.

This allows to draw everything you want, everywhere on the screen.
Hence the use of the "bitmap" name.

i know it is not a new mode. there can be only 8 different mode combinations on TMS vdp, and we already seen every possible configuration.
Just asking why i could not get a bitmap mode of 40x24 in three sections like some docs say on internet.
In this mode i should also have sprite sub system enabled

no color banks here, no color at all. the doc i've found on internet say that there is no attribute table, colors work like in text mode, from vdp(7)
