Amiga 500: New blitter c2p routine implemented. Need help to speedtest

category: general [glöplog]
I wish Pouet had more respect for code. :)

I actually have timing = script somewhere. ;)

Well I guess most people have written such tiny demosystems, they surprisingly give lots of control :)

Do I get this right? You are basically coding a VGA emulator to run all your effects on an A500? Isnt that somewhat wasteful of resources?

Emulating VGA and showing effects at the same time! ONLY AMIGA MAKES IT POSSIBLE!!
To be this good would take Sega ageS! ;p

Sealthz: due to the bitplane based video modes of the Amiga ( and the Atari ), some effects are a PITA to render. Doing a c2p is often the only way to get a descent framerate.

p01: Chunky effects on Amiga is kind of silly though, but hey - isn't making demos silly in the first place? :)

So the native amiga modes are useless? Are you insinuating that the amiga is inherently inferior to a boring PC?

Not useless, just mostly unused. That's a different thing. :)

bitplane modes are a blast for flat 3D and similar effect. You can write 16px ( or even 32px ) in one instruction.

you have to understand that when the amiga HW was invented it was ~1983, realtime texture mapping was out of question, and the planar modes were really useful for flat polys. They save even memory bandwidth, cpu power, and makes your screen highly scalable.

Looks like there won't be a production from me on Breakpoint afterall. I have to go to Cambodia on a Visa-run And I probobly end up on a beach drinking lao-kao with beatiful women. he-he. \
Demo for assembly (I hope.)

you could also make a visa run to germany, and end up drinking beer in the garden with skilled demosceners...

...hmm let me think...

...have lots of fun in cambodia! :P

Ok, I understand. So all my amiga friends who tried to sell my the amigas supremacy in multimedia at the beginning of the 90ies were still wrong.

No amiga 500 release on BP :(

Damn time is running fast.
Looks like there wont be an assembly prod. by me for assembly. Maybe a THX tune and a rotating object ;D

So, the this a500 demo will be at assembly 2007 or... ? :)

It's just bullshit :) Like the rest of the Amigaaaa scene.

Those who think the Amiga scene is bullshit should of course release something for Amiga that impresses Amiga coders. I mean, how hard can it be? ;)
