About This File

I needed a test program for the graphics routines in Prog8 that now also work in highres 4 color screen mode.

I thought it would be fun to replicate a classic Amiga Workbench desktop screen, using just the graphics drawing commands.


Note that the text font is actually the built-in iso charset. It is fairly similar to the Amiga's topaz font, so I just went with it and didn't bother to replicate the font pixel-perfect.
Also I didn't bother to make a nice white/red sprite mouse cursor, maybe I'll try to add this in a later version.

Here is a screenshot of a real Amiga Workbench 3.1 in action:

Now this is promising! Makes me speculate on how functional a 1 color, 4 color, or 16 color OS would be on the x16, not bad for an 8 bit CPU effectively as fast as the amiga.
