Congratulations to Yzoer who is this months winner for his VDP-1 (Tile and sprite based Video Display Processor) project which has been released under the MIT licence.
A quote from Yzoer's project is as follows:
Once again well done to Yzoer who will receive some free XMOS kit for his efforts. Please do check out his project here!"In case anyone’s interested, here are the specs:
1024 tiles of 8×8 pixels, 16 colors per tile for a total of 32K
16 palettes of 16 colors for a grand total of 256 colors on-screen out of 32768.
2 independently moveable backgrounds, pixel scrollable on both X- and Y
32 sprites ranging from 8×8 to 64×64 pixels
Horizontal and vertical flipping for background tiles ( hopefully sprites soon too! )
Currently the whole thing runs on a single core, in only 2 threads and memory to spare. The ‘plan’ is to clean it all up and add audio at some point, but we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it."
Looking towards September, please submit your nominations to the main POTM thread here (please ensure criteria are met detailed in this post if you wish to be considered).
