Unofficial Name: curBGColor

Memory Address: A017h

Length: 2 bytes

Stores the current background color for fixed-width text display routines.


This is used by PutMap, PutC, and many other system routines that call PutMap and PutC, such as PutS, PutPS, and DispHL. It only has an effect if the putmapDrawColor flag is set.

Colors are represented as a 5-6-5 value (5 bits of red, 6 bits of green, 5 bits of blue.) For example, 0000001111100000b, or 03E0h, would be dark green. 1111100000011111b, or 0F81Fh, would be bright magenta.
