VGA Coloring Book  1993

VGA Coloring Book is an easy-to-use coloring program for children, the successor to EGA Coloring Book. After selecting a color, simply click on the page to fill an area with color, and use the "oops" button to undo your actions. There is no pencil or any other tools for freeform drawing. VGA Coloring Book uses Mode 12h to add 130 vertical lines to EGA Coloring Book's resolution of 640×350, which allows the palette to sit at the top of the screen instead of overlapping the picture. Unfortunately, Mode 12h has the same limit of 16 simultaneous colors as EGA Mode 10h, so dithering must still be used to create the illusion of additional colors. VGA Coloring Book adds many more patterns, increasing the palette to 3000 colors and patterns. The only new feature seems to be the eyedropper tool, which allows you to click on a color in the picture to set it as the active color. VGA Coloring Book loses the option to save a picture to PCX format. Fives users can color the same picture and their work is remembered between sessions. Pictures can be printed, and drivers are included for dozens of printers. The shareware version contains a preview coloring book with six pictures – adding a cowboy picture to the five available in the shareware version of EGA Coloring Book. The registered version adds the ability to load your own PCX files for coloring. There are 80 pictures in this game, with only 6 available in the shareware version.
