Video showing color errors with 16 bit color depth using Flash

This is a known issue, documented in the readme:

  • Using SMP:

When running a system with the SMP kernel and having the /SMP switch defined on the PSD=ACPI.PSD in your config.sys, this might result in rendering problems with the Panorama video driver, like:

  • some text in Flash content might not be displayed correctly
  • Flash video playback when running in 64k colour mode will have strange colour patterns rendered. Switching to 16 million colours for the screen display fixes this problem
  • general stability is worse than when running in non-SMP mode

  • Milestone changed from 0.8.3 to general enhancement

Given that there is an easy workaround (and that the 16-bit color depth is kind of useless anyway), we are not going to work on this defect now.

  • Priority changed from major to Feedback Pending
  • Version set to 0.8.5

is this still a problem with latest panorama? or is that still a problem with latest odin at all?

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

as this is a panorama issue and even the reporter is not interested in it anymore i close it.
