Hmmmm it could work, how about it just lets you supply a pointer to the buffer and the programmer can figure out where to get his RAM :P

It's a thought. You get 8000 bytes for the prog, without any L* messing around, right? That might be enough if I use appvars for map data.....

What? I didn't say anything!  :-X

Indeed ^^ I wonder if 16 scale greyscale would be fast enough with 4 sprites to display per object to get good speed though o.O

I wasn't wanting it for greyscale. I wanted it for overlays, basically ORing one buffer to another, for a secret project I'm working on. But I don't want either buffer corrupted.

Oooooooh in that case we don'y need to bother with this because there is enough memory in L1 L3 and L6 for 3 buffers :) I imagine that Axiom would be fairly easy to make too! :D

Yay! Now I can has my 3 buffers! that's enough for me. I really only need two, but who knows, I might need three later :P

You can actually do all of the sprite commands to any external buffer by using Pt-Command→BUFF. If you need to use one of the L6-only commands, you can also use Exch() (expr() in the Catalog) to swap your buffer into L6.

I didn't say you couldn't?  What do you mean?  I just meant we don't have to allocate any new memory to get 3 buffers :)

@Compy Is there a way to OR two buffers together? Also, does that work for DispGraph?

There is definitely a way to do it in Asm, although you would have to get an asm guru to help you, I am not leet enough :P

Hence the axiom request I guess. :P So, I need a way to do bitwise-ORs for entire buffers :P

Also, how do you address the sprites put in as a tilemap using [PICr]? I figured I might as well ask.

Not easily. You will have to OR each byte in turn. However, you can store that directly to the LCD by using Runer112's LCDKit:
Code: (Axe + LCDKit) [Select]
For(I,0,767
{I+L3} or {I+L6}→imag(I
End

umm, shouldn't it be a +, since or is only 8-bit?

From manual,
EXP1·EXP2
EXP1+EXP2
EXP1☐EXP2    Returns respectively the full 16 bit "and", "or", and "xor" of the two expressions. These are the plot style tokens.

You mean like the small + one, right? Personally I've never used that. Thanks for the example for where it would be good to use it xD
