BlowUP030 is the expansion that will double the success of the
                     
Falcon030 (at least). It is designed especially for the Falcon030,
                     
ATARI delivers at the moment. If ATARI increases the bandwidth of
                     
the video-bus you might even get better results with our expansion
                     
or get an update (if possible). We (three students at the Technical
                     
University of Munich) have developed three versions, giving you the
                     
best results for the lowest price possible:
                     
                     
                     
BlowUP030 Soft:		29DM
                     
	This is the simplest version consisting only of the software
                     
	necessary to increase the resolution and manipulate the
                     
	Desktop, so that you can switch between the resolutions you
                     
	installed with our software. You are able to configure a
                     
	resolution for each colour-depth (2,4,16,256 and TC) in the
                     
	configuration-programm. With this programm you get a list of
                     
	resolutions suitable for different monitors from TV, SM124
                     
	(144,146...) to VGA,SVGA and Multisync-monitors. You either
                     
	pick one out of this list or extend your Falcons resolution
                     
	manually: In comfortable GEM-style you move sliders to get
                     
	the resolution and refreshrate possible on your monitor and
                     
	suitable for your eyes.	Doing all this with the software-
                     
	only-version will increase your	resolution but the refresh-
                     
	rates won't be very high (Like the PD-program SUPER_78 you
                     
	will get e.g. 640*480 in 76.4Hz nI or 880*480 60Hz nI).	With
                     
	the included Accessory (*) you can select between the default
                     
	resolution of the Falcon and the configured HI-res modes of
                     
	BlowUP.	You then can change the resolution from the Desktop
                     
	without rebooting your system. If you want to run a program
                     
	that is not compatible with that resolution, you can still
                     
	use the compatibility modes, which remain unchanged.
                     
                     
                     
BlowUP030 Hard 1:	99DM
                     
	With a similar comfortable software you get a small plug to
                     
	put between the Falcon and the VGA-adaptor. From this Box you
                     
	plug a cable into the joystick-port 2 extending the port out
                     
	of the bad place under your Falcon and supplying the Hardware
                     
	with power. Now its possible to reach the maximum resolutions
                     
	(see appendix) in up to 16colors. With standard VGA monitors
                     
	or MultiScan Monitors with very little range you maybe cannot
                     
	reach the middle resolutions, because this hardware has not
                     
	that much variability.
                     
                     
                     
BlowUP030 Hard 2: 	129DM
                     
	Now the hardware is so flexible that you can take the best
                     
	results out of the Falcon with a VGA monitor. As with Hard 1
                     
	you have a plug for the	monitor-jack but a cable to the STE-
                     
	Joystick-port B which cannot be used any more. This hardware
                     
	also improves the 256 colour modes in comparison to the
                     
	Software-only version.
                     
                     
                     
Demo-Version: 10DM
                     
	This Versin includes the driver program with one resolution
                     
	suitable for all VGA-monitors. Furtheron the disk contains
                     
	the installation Software to show you the look and feel. To
                     
	show you our other Projects you get our DSP-Fractal and our
                     
	PD-utility SUPER_78 (only for SVGA/MultiScan)
                     
                     
                     
Here some examples for resolutions possible with BlowUP030 ... but
                     
remeber: It is freely configurable and you might get better results
                     
by varying the parameters:

	1280*960  | 68i     68i     68i     44i
                     
                     
                     
	480*480 TC 61 N.I  (31.5kHz)
                     
	480*960 TC 61 I
                     
	640*480 TC with approx. 23kHz horizontal Freq. 
                     
                     
                     
                     
                     
The software is able to take out the best of your monitor. So you
                     
might set the resolution a bit lower and get a better refresh-rate
                     
or increase the resolution if you aren't very flicker-sensible. To
                     
use these high resolutions you need at least a SVGA monitor, but
                     
better a real MultiScan-monitor.
                     
... and all that from 29.- to 129.-DM
