GRP2 and GRP3 mystery

  • #1 ✎ 592 random_god Intermediate Programmer I can make programs, but I still have trouble here and there. Programming Strength Zelda Is Awesome! I love The Legend Of Zelda! Express Yourself Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies Hey, guys, have you ever wondered what happened to GRP2 and GRP3? I think they are just extra graphic pages, but idk. Thoughts? Posted

Express Yourself Any graphics page can be used for any purpose. By default: GRP0: upper screen graphics GRP1: lower screen graphics GRP2: none GRP3: none GRP4: upper screen sprites, lower screen sprites GRP5: upper screen BG tiles, lower screen BG tiles But you can use GPAGE, SPPAGE, and BGPAGE to change these.

Express Yourself The reason you're given two extra pages is for page flip buffering and scratch spaces for drawing/compositing graphics, among other things. Posted

    Because you can use any graphic page for drawing and displaying images. SBGED is programmed to use pages 2 and 3 for its interface because they wanted to make the images on 0 and 1 editable (since those pages are more likely to be used.)
