improve Color cycling Speed range
|Reported by:||Thomas Bernard||Owned by:||pulkomandy|
Color cycling speed can be adjusted from 1 to 64.
1 => 0.2856Hz
35 => 10Hz
64 => 18.2784Hz.
I think that dates back from MS-DOS times where GrafX2 color cycling code was based on the system timer at 18.2784Hz
But on today versions of GrafX2, the color cycling can work much faster, around 50Hz I think (every 20ms).
color cycled pictures are originating mainly from amiga and Atari ST which have 50Hz (or 60Hz) frame rate. Maybe the 70Hz 200/400 lines VGA mode should also be considered.
So I think there is no reason to limit the speed to 18.2784Hz
In fact, I've loaded a file with a color cycle set to 69Hz and everything works well when color cycling, except the slider in the GrafX2 GUI :)
(it's showing 242, but I can only lower it;)
So my proposition is to allow this slider to go from 1 to 255 ...
Or else we could also completely change the range used, but I don't think that would be very useful.
