I have to agree with Kalms here, posting random suggestions without displaying any knowledge of the subject at hand is better suited for the other Wolf3d-thread.

If you mean having the chunkybuffer rotated 90 degrees, then currently mainly the fact that I haven't felt like tinkering with my c2p routine yet, but at some point I will :)

With bitmasks this wouldn't be a problem. But there are of course other issues to also consider with sprite rendering.

I would definitely make a separate routine for these cases.

That's a really nice idea, and would definitely make the rendering faster as also sprite rendering would benefit from this. Will definitely try it out when I have some time :)

Yes, it runs on a A500 512k+512k. Currently the rendering doesn't even make use of Fast RAM, as both the screen buffers and the wall rendering code is in Chip RAM.

Untextured walls with depth shading would indeed be a lot faster on A500, as they wouldn't need to be drawn on a per-pixel basis.
