[MZ-80A] Pixel Finder V1.0

When I was making my short demo "1000 FOLLOW" I needed a quick way to find patterns of pixels within the CGROM. I created this utility to help me do this. You can plot a pattern of pixels and it will search the whole CGROM for you to find that pattern of pixels. It will then tell you which...

Re: [MZ-80A] Short demo

Here are the files for the short demo. I know the code could be more efficient but I was pretty happy to see this working (both on my emulator and on my real MZ-80A)

[MZ-80A] Short demo

Hi all,

Just a very short demo I made (inspired by recent excellent demos I've seen from others) celebrating reaching 1000 followers on Twitter:

Display Codes

Here's an interesting question: Why are the display codes in the Display Code Table ordered in the way that they are? For instance, it would have been nice if Sharp had put the numeric symbols before the alphabetic symbols. That way if you wanted to print the number "5" on the screen you w...

Re: Sharper by Genesis Project

I doubt that the straight vertical line character is being used though. I'm sure it must be a mixture of different characters :)

Re: Sharper by Genesis Project

Thanks for the explanation :) For a long time I have been thinking through doing something like this (on a smaller scale) on my MZ-80A. I think it would be near impossible on the 80A though. Great to see it finally done on the 700 though!
