forcing 512x384 resolution on system 7

Sun Feb 25, 2018 12:27 pm

Is it possible to set Operating System to 512x384 resolution on System 7 on real computer?
Fusion PC 3.0 only allows the choice of: 640x480, 800x600 and higher.

I seem to recall that the screen settings depended on the attached monitor.
The Mac Plus and similar, of course had 512 by 384 as only possible setting. I would have to dig out the specs of my Mac monochrome and colour monitors to see whether 512x384 was an option, but I guess it was - if only for compatibility reasons. I know my NEC Multisync could do it, though I hardly used it. :)

BTW, Basilisk II may be set to 512x384:

MiniVMac runs with a 512x384 screen by default too.
I guess much depends how screen sizes were patched into the MacOS for emulation.
Real Macs had sense pins at their video output to determine which screen resolutions a given monitor could do.

I just used univbe and 512x384 works in Fusion PC 3.0 now. :)
