Drawing lines
« on: October 12, 2010, 01:48:31 pm »
Hi - quickly, could somebody explain how Axe draws lines (as in, how it chooses which pixels to turn on)?

Is there a formula of some kind, and how would the routine-thingy handle turning on multiple dots in the same column or row?
My website: Currently boring.

   > Memory: Need write code to add constants.
   > Graphics: Rewritten.  Needs to integrate sprites with constants.
   > IO: GetKey done.  Need to add mostly homescreen IO stuff.
Croquette:
   > Stomping bugs
   > Internet version: On hold until I can make my website less boring/broken.

Line(X1,Y1,X2,Y2) Draws a black line from point (X1,Y1) to (X2,Y2) on the buffer.

pixel start Top left to X=0 and Y=0, and finish bottom right to X=96 and Y=64.

Next you need dispgraph.

Ah - not what I meant.  Sorry.
I know about the line command, but I would like to know at a more indepth scale exactly which pixels the command knows to turn on.

(What I will end up trying to do is check along a line to see when it encounters a pixel already on, then draw the line only to that point.)

This doesn't answer the question, but what you could do is simply do a pxl-test( loop where you constantly change the position of the pixel. When the test returns a one, store the answer to a variable. Then all you have to do is draw the line to that point.

Doesn't it use an OS b_call? If not, informal feature request: Line()r.
