    @Rubenerd have you received the new chip yet? I’m looking forward to seeing a functional 80 column mode, as I didn’t even know it was a thing!

      Hi, and thanks for the invite :). Not yet, it came from Germany so might be another week or so. I’m super keen to try it out. Screenshots show Desterm128 really pops with all that screen real estate!

        I’m looking forward to seeing a functional 80 column mode, as I didn’t even know it was a thing!

        But it is one of the primary features of the 128 (!).

        80 columns is a big deal for productivity.

          I used to have a 128 as a kid and while I’d booted into the green 128 mode, I don’t remember the 80 column mode except as maybe a hazy memory of the unit doing something extra weird.

          Maybe if my dad had been aware it existed he might have used it instead of upgrading to an IBM clone, and I might not have had access to it for games, so swings and roundabouts.
