Spectrum-Style Graphics by Evil Roy Ferguson | No Votes
Does what it says on the tin.
Written in

This isn't exactly what I'd call optimized, but it more or less works for putting basic Spectrum-like graphics in your games.

You can download this file, plus a small example program and the font file you'll need to get it working here.

Include this file:
-->

Loading an image becomes:

-->

Your main loop will look something like this:

-->

The difference between the 2/regular versions is that the "2" versions are marginally faster but also are constrained to drawing 8x8 pixel images to coordinates that are multiples of 8 pixels.

I tried this, but was unable to get it to work. I just get a black screen. Perhaps you could upload a folder with a BB project all written and ready to run.

I'll write up a more complete example soon. In retrospect, not including a complete working example is something of a glaring omission.

Does Zieks also show a blank screen? If so, then the effect itself is broken on your hardware and I will need to fix it. (This is something of a concern, since the buffer stuff it's doing IS kind of weird.)

Yes, Zieks worked fine.
