hadn't heard of it, but found it on Asimov

I found a copy of it on Asimov (ftp://ftp.apple.asimov.net/pub/apple_II/images/utility/graphics/hi_res_scroller.dsk.gz). Nifty little graphics manipulation utility.

re: Super Hi-res Scroller

Well, now I've heard of it -- thanks for sharing. You are right it is an "old" apple ][ graphics utility that scrolls the "hi-res" screen, as opposed to the "Super hi-res" screen of the IIGS. Super!

I recently wrote a little program to generate 6502 machine code to do a fast fullscreen hi-res scroll that scrolls "up" only. There is an optimization in this routine: the more "space" characters on the screen the faster that it scrolls. This routine is used by the "Apple-1 for Apple II" program (in hex format) that I submitted on April 1, 2006.

Ask Tom...

Searching on Gurgle seems to turn up lots of hits for folks looking for it, but no downloads. Ask your new friend Tom E. Hawk if he has a copy, maybe we can post it on Asimov...
