If your programs check MM.DEVICE$ for compatibility, you may need to make a small change to cater for the Second Gen.

MM.DEVICE$ = "Colour Maximite 2" for Gen 1 and "Colour Maximite 2 G2" for the Gen 2 devices.

The easiest way to cover both versions is to use

IF INSTR(MM.DEVICE$,"Colour Maximite 2") THEN
   ' we have version G1 or G2
   
or

IF INSTR(MM.DEVICE$,"G2") THEN
   ' we have version G2


I have updated my video mode test program to suit.

The full colour modes look great in the test program but for most purposes, the existing faster modes will continue to be the best choice.
