Picasso96FixV2
==============

TL;DR: Install Picasso96FixV2 in C:, Call in Startup-Sequence after Loading of
Monitors/Replacment for Picasso96Fix, set UAEGFX-VRam to 128MB and add
128MB Z3-Ram, be happy using upto 8k Resolution.

As i played around a bit with WinUAE4.4 and my Amiga-Wb i noticed Picasso96
limits the screensizes to some strange values for higher resolutions,
first i thought "Not enough VRam", but that wasn't the fault,
then i found the rather old Picasso96Fix which isnt included in WinUAE since
a long time, i sets the maximum for width and height to 2048,
so no 4k resolution for my emulated Amiga???
This why i made Picasso96FixV2, it allows you to use Screens upto
7680*4320 (8k Resolution) Pixel in Picasso96.
With this version you can set up doublewidth/doubleheight-4k-Screens (or both)

Ram-Usage:
For 7680*4320 16 Bit you need 64MB VRam on UAEGFX
For 7680*4320 32 Bit you need 128MB VRam on UAEGFX

*** NOTICE ***
You need at least the same amount of Free Ram to test any of these modes !
So the 128 MB in the WinUAE's Processor-Slot is not enough.
My suggestion: Add Z3-Ram the same size as VRam, this works fine.
*** NOTICE ***

In case you wonder, yes larger displaysizes are possible, but Picasso96 is on
its last legs here, i can open 15360 width testscreens, but the Testscreen
created by screenmode is warped/buggy maybe it's only "screenmode"'s fault,
but imho everyone should be happy with these new "limits". :)
When you get an error while trying a high resolution, increase your fastmem.

Source-Code is included.

This program is giftware, send me something if you like it. :P
