Under WHAT operating system? Under OS-9 level ONE I know nothing
about what options are built in to the sytem… there probably ARE none.
All that will offer is the worthless color composite striped signal
on the monochrome monitor. Tho a patch or module for OS 9 level
one may be available eventually. Under OS-9 level TWO I am told
there will be a mode command that will allow you to set the output
of the composite port to monochrome. Under RS BASICK, we will
eventually find the appropriate SHADOW REGISTER in the base page
that can be POKED in order to set up for monochrome output.
Dale Lear has both a CoCo3 AND a monochrome monitor, and he may be
able to enlighten you further.
That’s user name DALELEAR.
