Video: Lesson P10 - Tilemap graphics on the MSX1
Posted: Wed Apr 24, 2019 9:05 am
We tried to use the MSX1 VDP as a bitmap display before, that will work fine for text adventures, but it's a bit slow for faster stuff!
The MSX1 VDP is really a Tilemap based system, and will work far 'better' if we work with it in the same way as the Gameboy and Mastersystem...
Also like the Mastersystem, the VDP is controlled with OUT commands... we select a memory address with the Control port (&98), and send our data to the Data port (&98)
