Cool stuff, thanks Tim. Regarding COLOUR_QL, etc. this mode switching is a purely internal SBasic concept. The other colour modes are implemented by different TRAPs from the QL colour TRAPs, so by setting COLOUR_24 you just tell the basic commands like PAPER to use the 24-bit TRAP instead. Usually a bit of assembler is needed to interface TRAPs to the C compiler, but this way you should be able to make your own paper24 function, for example.

Cheers, Marcel
