Oh yeah, this thing. I should see how much work it would be to try this on the CE... Since I can activate 1bpp mode, I imagine that I could get some nice results. The speed would be far greater. Could be an interesting idea...

Well, I finally went and did it. Smile I opted for 8bpp mode in order to have faster updates when enlarging the screen, and here are the results:
(NOTE: I could also probably enlarge the screen again and still get decent results) In 1bpp mode; it was crazy fast, but no where near the amount of pixels to look at comfortably.


Compared to the original:

Here is just the screen update code; I also copy the program to safeRAM and jump there so that way I can use proper z80 mode if needed. Kind of fun, I guess. You could even probably attempt grayscale, as it has a color index, so that might be kind of neat. Going to see how fast it goes in Mario now. Razz If you notice any optimizations, feel free to mention them! Smile

That looks very good! I wonder how well Supersonic Ball will play?

MateoConLecuga: Will the Mario game you are trying out using this be an actual game for the CSE to download?

It'd be impossible to get SSB working with mono2color because it was written with Axe, not in straight assembly.

For the CSE, yes:

Nice! That is an impressive concept; I might try to see if interlacing can be taken advantage of in some more ways... In addition, I had to relocate some sections of code for this program as it would not work on an actual calculator due to the $C000 limit. Anywho, here's the updated file if anyone wants to play around with it some more; should be working quite nicely! (Also, ionDetect also includes AppVars now, simple fix, so now you can use JamesV's converter to make all the level packs AppVars in case you don't want all the programs populating the screen.)

Also, I am not sure how these programs should be released; I believe that efforts to email the original creator are a definite must.


For the CE, not for a while. I'm a little out of commission at the moment, but I'm sure that someone can adapt it to work. The foundation is already there.
Thanks for that Mario game!

What does prgmSMALL do?
Please don't double post,there is an edit button in the topc right corner of each of your posts.

SMALL is super mario land levels, if I am not mistaken. Wink
When will a download be available?

A download for Mario? There is one available here
Wow this is really cool! I wonder how exactly do you port a ti-83/84 plus assembly program to work on the ti-84 cse?
