Half Bright Colours

Unread post by TheCorfiot »

Hey all

I've noticed on the ZX Spectrum core that its not displaying the full colour range, ie 8 bright colours and 8 lower intensity.
I'm using the HDMI out as the display.

Is it just me setting it up wrong.

Thanks

How do you check that? I think the only proper way is to capture a screenshot on the MiSTer itself. When I do this (ZX-Spectrum_20220620.rbf), the difference in colours is visible. For example, #FFFF00 for bright yellow and #C0C000 for normal yellow.

Assuming the screen capture shows proper colours, I'd suggest: 1) re-setting mister.ini to defaults (make backup, of course); 2) moving to Display Devices section.
