This was my second Chicago CocoFEST. I had a wonderful time, it was great seeing everybody again. I’m thankful I didn’t get stuck in the elevator.

Temple of Rom RGB Workaround

I discovered if you press clear after Temple of Rom starts it switches to PMODE 3. I wrote a short basic program that switches the palettes to make it look more like the tv artifact graphics colors. Download the disk image here.

A quick video of the workaround in action

A quick videos of the alternate color modes you can get with the clear, shift and enter keys before the “patch”.
