Which reminds me... On TNI Windows '95 are 2 interesting MSX2+ programs. One shows all 131072 YJK values at the same time (using a scrollable 256x512 interlaced screen) and the other allows you to zoom into a SCREEN12 picture without color bleeding.

Doesn't mean it isn't nice Smile. I knew how screen 11/12 basically works already, but this explains it nicely, and I didn't know about the 131000 colours thing Smile.
