Verdraith has a new repo on his GitHub page. I hope he stops by when time permits. His NeXT repo's are top-notch.

Quote from: MindWalker on December 23, 2023, 04:27:04 AMA correction to my earlier post; I didn't realize I was then (needlessly) running in 32-bit colour (I believe? The mode that says RGB:888/32) and now that I dropped it down to 256 colours (RGB: 256/8) I get much better results: NXFactor between 6.04 - 6.49!

(Although now I am confused; most pages say that the HP 712/60 would require extra VRAM to do even 256 colours @ 1280x1024. I don't have any extra VRAM and can still do 256 and even higher?)
