    Well itīs between high color(16 bit) and true color(24 bit), wich means 20 bits = 1048576 colors. Got it?

    How do you get 20-bit color setting on your computer?
    Usually it goes like this:
    256colors
    16bit-true
    24bit-true
    32bit-true

    The controller card should be able to do it. The CHIPS controller I have better be able to do 12 bit, becuase that's what my lcd is

    looks like I am somewhat talking to myself, well it at least makes me feel better .....
    I was thinking about swapping the vertical and horizontal sync, now relastically would that switch it on its side, or would I have a real nice frisbee made of glass....

    by the way found the pinouts for it ... http://www.inside-usa.com/documents/d00040-0.htm posting it cause it makes me happy ... woooo hooo ....

    Respond on wether its possible....

    Flipping the horiz and vert sync woulnt't work.
