Re: DKC 3D Modeling/Animation Project PHASE ONE COMPLETE

Well the computer build was a success with a few scares.

Now I just need some 3D software. Either Blender or 3ds Max. However 3ds Max is too expensive. But Blender is free. However all my project files are for 3ds max.
Confused!

Re: Sprite Graphics

I thought that the tiles go in this order...

TL
TR
BL
BR

with each tile 32 bytes after the previous one.

Does that make sense?

Well according to that screen shot that isn't true.

the 1x1 chars come right after the TL and TR of the 2x2 chars

Not your fault. That was a detail I missed. When a row has no garbage, you carry on counting with the next row. In my example, the first DMA call encounters a garbage cell after 0xf chars. I like that. That is a better way to explain things. A DMA group counts chars left to right until you run into...

Re: Sprite Graphics

Since you don't want the bottom half of the 9th 2x2 char to be loaded next to the last 1x1 char (if you did, the bottom half would be garbage), you need a second DMA group to place these last two chars on the fourth row, where the belongs (chars 0x30-0x31). Hence, the last two header values of 0x30...
