I already have it on PC but how about support for RTG cards?

Although this sounds great, this is for version 1 of deluxe paint, which would have been the very early version used to showcase the A1000 at launch and was only slightly more advanced than the ProPaint software used by Andy Warhol.

In my opinion, math used in that specific Dpaint is probably ancient for most of well educated people, as well as coding. I used much more advanced math in my progs. So, I wonder what would be benefit of looking that source code?
Dpaint for RTG is good idea.
Cheers!

Well, it is a point in history, so for historical purposes it is good to get an insight into how they coded it. And it was always going to be basic by today's standards as this was one of the first proper 16 bit art packages.
