Is it common for others to switch back and forth between solid white and a fine grid? Is there a standard test procedure that I can cite in that test's help page, analogous to the SMPTE standard defining color bars? If you are the only person who would use that feature, it would probably be better as a stand-alone ROM.

But if anyone else expresses interest, I could add Select to switch between solid color screen and a fine line grid.

Ya I'm not sure how many other people do those kinds of adjustments, not super common, I'm a power user :P

Could you make a stand-along that swaps between them, fine grid, full red, full white?

Also one other way to improve the fine grid is small the dot in the middle indicator, it's certainly useful to see the middle quickly without counting lines; however, certainly can be in the way when scrutinizing the very import static convergence.

a separate way to toggle it on/off would be nice, maybe ideal solution.

The standalone convergence test turned out to be 1.25 KiB, but iNES format rounds that up to 16 KiB.

Left: Switch to grid (or toggle center dot)
Right: Switch to solid color (or toggle white/red)
Start: Toggle help

Automatically detects PAL or NTSC, using 7x8 pixel cells on NTSC or 8x11 pixel cells on PAL.

I guess I ought to post the changes I made a year ago when I was preparing the suite for release as part of Action 53 volume 3.

0.16 (2017-03-13)

  • Grid: Select toggles gray or black background (parity with Genesis test 1.15)
  • Sound test: Added "Crowd", a bytebeat composition by Kragen ported to NES by rainwarrior
  • paginate_help.py: Specify UTF-8 encoding for input file (Python for Windows instead defaults to cp1252)
  • paginate_help.py: Fix NameError in error message formation
  • paginate_help.py: Helper to raise UnicodeEncodeError, whose constructor argument order is undocumented outside interpreter source code
  • makefile: Work around %Path% quirk in Python for Windows
