Re: 'Dixel' scrolling... Ghosts 'n' Goblins

oops yeah

yeah you've got a call to a sub twice instead of just jumping over the set command if no pixel needs to be set

I assume the advantage of dixel techniques would be if you are storing pre-rotated bytes, you only need half the amount

Re: 'Dixel' scrolling... Ghosts 'n' Goblins

I read that R-Type book again recently
I think it uses 2x2 (a.k.a. 16x16) blocks i think, for the scenery, it saves memory

Re: Poll: Manic Miner vs Jet Set Willy

Would anyone say MM 'saved' the spectrum?
ie
it was the first game that wasn't a bit crap, and had that long term playability.
