Yep, in theory they are supported on the CoCo3FPGA. The only 256-color mode I’ve use on it is the 640x450. And I believe Gary has already implemented the 256-color 160x192/200/225 mode and, I assume, the 128x192/200/225 mode on GIME X.

Both 128x192/200/225 and 160x192/200/225 with 256 colors should be feasible. Dave - are any of those modes supported on the CocoFPGA? If so, I am hoping that Gary and Ed also add those to the GIME-X.
