Posted by zilog_z80a, 02 April 2018 · 100 views

 
Remember, i was looking a tutorial about Atari 2600 programming.... my idea in that moment the same that now.
 
YAY!! AYE!! WANNA KNOW HOW TO PROGRAMME A VCS PYJAMARAMA!!!
 
i was a little less anxious than now, lol, and i think i was reading :
 
 
 
 
Session 21: Sprites

so... IS POSSIBLE TO READ A TABLE GRAPHICS?! WOW!! 
when i read the excercises on Session 21 i wasn't able to do them all, but.... that table thing..... wtf is a table?!! read a table? 
 
 
:-o  :-o  :-o  :-o  :-o  :-o  :-o  :-o  :-o  
 
 
 
then i remember my hunger of code, just to see what is all this about, graphics....sound!! BUT HOW?!! (we are always on the run)
 
then, i read code... and code and code, being a newbie is something stresant and sometimes even confusing.
 
and may be--- that afternoon i found a table related to a playfield, then a playfield editor, so i think i found THE TABLE WORD.
 
That was enough to lead me at google and search again about graphics.
 
there it was, the SKIPDRAW thing!! jesus!! was too much for my newbie brain so in a matter of days i did at GOOGLE a new search .
 
 
 
SKIPDRAW site:atariage.com
 
 
 
SKIPDRAW couldn't use or understand it so i did it work my way, a bad and erroneous version of skipdraw, but it did work lol ...... the important thing was that I had learned my rainbow (from davie's tutorial) and my first graphic.
 
funny to remember. pure  anxiety
