Issue L61105     [previous patch]

'Game uses colour' bit is always set
Submitted by: David Kinder     Appeared in: Library 6/11     Fixed in: -
Problem

Every game compiled with the 6/11 library has the 'game uses colour' bit set in the Flags2 header word.

Solution

The 6/11 parserm.h includes four @set_colour opcodes, which weren't there previously; using this opcode automatically sets the header bit. The code in this area should be enclosed in some form of #IfDef CLR_ON wrappers (clr_on is currently a global variable performing a similar function).
