Background Color
« on: June 16, 2012, 12:31:00 am »
Is there a way to change the background color of the screen without storing a gigantic sprite?

You mean memset.
Due to dissatisfaction, I will be inactive on Omnimaga until further notice. (?? THP hasn't been much success and there's also the CE. I might possibly be here for a while.)
If you want to implore me to come back, or otherwise contact me, I can be found on GitHub (bluebear94), Twitter (@melranosF_), Reddit (/u/Fluffy8x), or e-mail (if you know my address). As a last resort, send me a PM on Cemetech (bluebear94) or join Touhou Prono (don't be fooled by the name). I've also enabled notifications for PMs on Omnimaga, but I don't advise using that since I might be banned.

Yup, i was tired and sleepy

So, you use memset like this:
void * memset ( void * ptr, int value, size_t num );
Ptr will be a pointer to the screen, value the color, and num the number of pixel to change.

Also, memset returns the first argument.

Actually, get the RGB value for brown, then encode it in 5-6-5 RGB.

So, according to my calculations, 0x9A60.

0xA8000000 is the pointer to the screen, I got confused, sorry.

So, you use memset like this:
void * memset ( void * ptr, int value, size_t num );
Ptr will be a pointer to the screen, value the color, and num the number of pixel to change.
memset works with bytes, so you can use it to fill the screen, but only for few colors, where the lower byte equals the higher byte.
Black or white is OK, but brown (0x9A60) not, because 0x9A != 0x60.
Also the num is NOT number of pixels, but number of pixels * sizeof(unsigned short), because 1 pixel (= 1 unsigned short) == 2 bytes.
