As a (lazy) ARM coder I have developed what I believe is a good 'generated code sprites' generator.
I would like to know which solutions you chose on the ST and later machine with faster CPUs.
My technique and ideas for the Archies are described here :http://www.stardot.org.uk/forums/vie...ilit=generated
Mode 13 is the 320 x 256, 8 bits per pixel screen mode on the Acorn Archimedes.
Thanks for your comments, it will be highly appreciated.
I think I have re invented the wheel and it has all been done already on the ST ; but if, who knows, that wasn't the case, I would be more than happy to give even more details to some programmers out there to port the technique to the ST.
Please note : this thread isn't intended to start a 'My machine is much better than yours'.
Contrary to the other well known other 68000 machine at the time, I do praise the ST for being the 1st available, ultracheap, and gifted with many games and great apps, and easy to use.
