FM Towns II

The FM Towns II is a follow up to the FM Towns (read this entry for more info).

The FM Towns II could read CD audio. 5 LED displayed the sound volume and two buttons was used to change volume.

Graphics video features were very powerful:
- One could display up to 800 sprite (16x16) on one video frame, - Zoom and screen rotation were hardware features. Display could be rotated to any angle using one single command.
- Texts, Sprites and Graphics used three different RAM areas. They could be easily displayed simultaneously.

We need more info about this computer ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system, please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.

I find the English language to be very unintelligent and with many gramical errors. Obviously PorkyR never took the time at School to learn French or is arrogant of his own language. This is why they teach you this kind of stuff in grade school. And also to stay on topic of the computer I find the casing of the FM Towns II very interesting and I really like it. Possibly my favourite design for a computer of this time.

Sentinelle_Divine (FRANCE) J''utilise un traducteur en ligne.

Je ne comprends pas complètement à votre question. Mais je pense que le système d''exploitation, il a été fait pour qu''on appelle le système d''exploitation villes, et je ne pense pas que vous y trouverez des informations plus sur le sujet, en raison de la rareté de cette machine.

porkyR I do not think that comment was called for, in any way, and would be classified as xenophobia in the least. Please do refrain from making such comments again, and if you can, try to learn another language yourself. And, I''d like to point out, you insulted them in English, when they speak french, which may also be a further extent of your xenophobia, hiding behind a shield of language and all.
