Resolution ][ includes the following features:
Full support for the Apple ][ double-high-resolution graphics mode
560 x 192 monochrome resolution, 140 x 192 color resolution
Color graphics with up to 16 colors
Graphics primitives for filling backgrounds and drawing pixels and lines
Support for all versions of DOS 3.3 and ProDOS
Minimal memory and zero page footprint wherever possible
Interface for writing 6502 assembly language programs
Support for all versions of AppleSoft BASIC
The following features are planned for future releases of Resolution ][:
Easy-to-use interface for AppleSoft BASIC programs. Currently, AppleSoft BASIC applications must use a series of POKE, PEEK, and CALL commands to perform a Resolution ][ task.
Routines for additional drawing primitives: ellipse, filled ellipse, rectangle, and filled rectangle
Support for "blitting" -- the ability to move regions of graphics within the display or across a memory buffer
Support for streaming the display into an uncompressed bitmap image using a popular file format
Support for rendering text using fixed-width and proportional bitmap fonts
Speed enhancements and improvements. Even though many speed optimizations are implemented in Resolution ][, pixel rendering can still be optimized further to guarantee fast graphics performance.
