SK>Hello again... does anyone out there know how to <maybe in Quick Basic> SK>change it so instead of having flashing text in text mode you SK>have hi-intensity backgrounds? Anyone? SK>Thanks, -=[SIMON]=- Again, This is the assembly language echo. But, to answer your question: Bit 5 of the CGA's Mode Control Register ( 03d8 ) control Blink / Hi intensity backgrounds. For Hi-intensity backgrounds: OUT &h03D8, INP(&h03D8) OR 32 For Blinking Backgrounds: OUT &h03D8, INP(&h03D8) AND 223 Hope this helps. -Matt P === * SLMR 2.1a * Press any key to continue or any other key to quit --- InterPCB 1.50 # Origin: CENTRAL BBS -Texas' BEST BBS! 214-393-7090 HST 3+GIGs (8:930/21) * Origin: Gateway System to/from RBBS-NET (RBBS-PC 1:10/8)
