Any news from a 'battlefield'?
Time passes. Thorin sits down and sings about gold. (Who had thought that quote would ever become near-current again!)
Inspiration happened. Code didn't want to happen - how much you forget. After much googling and testing I got a tiny proof of concept coded.
And next to nothing happens.
It looks like it is spending cycles writing to registers without nothing happening at all. Kind of like the blitter isn't listening. The colours change for nearly 2(?) lines before it looks like it is done and idles again. I could take a picture if interested.
19 bobs of 2 A writes, 2 D writes, 1 size write = 190 cycles which rhymes with less than 2 lines?
