While messing about with the new firmware for the Turbo Chameleon V2, I once again looked around for other people’s experiences. I came across a post on the EAB forums about entering the service menu of the Benq BL702a monitor and disabling the popup about the native resolution. This is a huge convenience, because I haven’t succeeded in making the Chameleon display a nice image on a resolution of 1280×1024.
The new firmware does allow for more options that look good though. I’m currently running 768×576@50Hz which looks really good for C64 mode. I also tried the new MiniMigAGA core. That also looks good, but not as good as the InidivisionECSv2 running beside it on the same monitor. The difference being that the Inidivsion fills the whole screen, while the Chameleon only part of the screen. While starting up, the core says something about fixing the screen resolution, but I don’t know exactly what that means and if there are any options there.
The other interesting thing I noticed while browsing around the menu of the monitor was the option to choose different display modes. Right now, it’s fixed at FILL, but it seems possible to also choose OVERSCAN or RATIO. I’m not able to change that though. I wonder why.
