From SMSQE Manual...
The DISP_TYPE function is used to find the type of display. For standard QL
style displays in MODE 4 (any resolution) DISP_TYPE returns 0. The value
returned on other display systems may vary according to the hardware and
colour depth. In general, on SMSQ/E versions supporting higher colour
modes, and on Atari emulator cards, the following values may be returned.
0 – QL style display (MODE 4)
1 - Extended mode 4 emulator (standard and extended display sizes) on Atari.
2 - QVME mode 4 emulator on Atari.
3 - Aurora LCD
4 - Monochrome display on Atari.
5 - Aurora QL mode
8 – QL MODE 8 display
16 – 8-bit (256 colour) mode
32 – 16-bit colour mode on QPC, QXL and SMSQmulator
*33 – 16-bit colour mode on Q40 and Q60*
64 – 24-bit colour mode (no hardware supports this at the time of writing)
The DISP_TYPE function is used to find the type of display. For the Q40,
there are two values that may be returned.
0 Original ST QL emulator (this value is returned on QL based hardware).
*1 16 bit colour mode.*
Which of the two is the right one?
