Re: [hatari-devel] It seems I encounter a bug into hatari

You're right Thomas.
It seems I can abuse these registers in word size (Racer works well to confirm that), but not in long words.

I've written a little program based on Nicolas 's asking which displays the values of the registers $ff8240 and $ff8242 when I first write a long word into them.

I'll send you the result values on both my falcon and Hatari tonight.

I don't think that you can abuse the color registers for storing
arbitrary data since there are likely some bits in the register that
are not implemented in hardware (either tied to zero or random when you
read them back). We likely just lack the masking of the color registers
in Falcon mode in Hatari, that's why it's working by accident there.
