Moving a big banner behind a static object

Hello Amiga coders,
As the title states, I am trying to move up and down on the screen a big banner behind a static object on top of it.
The big banner cant be a sprite because it's too large (sprites allow maximum 16px width X 8).
I can't use the double playfield mode because the front image has too many colors (16 colors in 4 bitplanes) and I dont want to reduce them to 8 as the double playfield mode requires.
At the end I come up with a simple trick, I activated playfield 5 and reserved it to the banner, that means that the banner could only contain background + 1 color, not a big issue for me.
Then I replicated the palette from color 1-15 to 17-31, in this way, when a pixel of the banner goes over the pixel of the picture, since it's the most significant bit, it adds 16 to the current value and because of the replication, the same color is used resulting in the static image displayed instead of the banner.
On the contrary, when there is no overlay, the color 16 is used to print the banner.
The animation is then performed working on bitplane 5 pointers, adding or subtracting "#1" everytime vhpos is FF.
The result is shown in my adf : http://adf.ozzyboshi.com/the_crows-inkazzato.adf
Do you know a better trick to achieve this behaviour? Palette duplication is a waste of resources and the superfrog head (which is a sprite) cant wander through the entire screen because when it leaves the top of the screen he's forced to share the 17-31 colors of the duplication.
Thanks in advance for your help.

The only viable alternative is a smart blitter usage (with a 4-bpl screen).
Foreground image is not spanning full screen, so you can make cookye-cut operation in the center and a store operation in the sides.
In this case, better if you use an interleaved bitmap to minimize blitter registers setup operations.

However I would not reject the dual-playfield mode. In that case you are full of opportunities.
Even if you only have 7 colors usable, you can changhe them every line with the copper, the effect could be very good.

The image doesn't look like it would be too big to be drawn as a 'bob' / blitter object.
Although the background is moving you could actually make the background stay still but scroll the bitplane pointers to make it move. And you can draw the overground character with blitter in every frame at a position that makes it stay still.
With this approach it would make sense to use more colours in the background banner too since it's possible.

You can draw the character with one blitter call if you use interleaved bitplanes and then you use sprites and cpu for other things in the meantime.
Also if you use interleaved bitplanes the blitter should draw it fast enough to be ahead of the visible scanline and you don't necessarily need double buffering.

There's an undocumented feature that might be handy:
http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?p=1145422

Basically it gives you a 5-bitplane mode where a 1 in the 5th plane gives you always color 16, regardless of the other 4 planes. So color 17-31 are free for sprites. But it involves setting an illegal playfield priority, you may want to check how it works with sprites, I've never tested it.

Oh, and OCS/ECS only, does not work on AGA - so you'd need to detect the chipset and for AGA use a different setup (but there's enough colors to do so, plus you can choose the sprite palette offset).

EDIT: I may have gotten wrong what you are trying to do - are you moving a 16-color pic behind a single bitplane one or the other way round? In the latter case the trick mentioned above probably isn't of much use.

You could probably get away with doing a straight copy blit of just one bit plane from the front image into the back ground scrolling image, you'd just need to adjust the Y source each frame. This way you only use four planes leaving the high colour registers for sprites.

Another way to do it which way you are doing it now but have your sprites with the attach bit set on - that way you only use 6 colours from the upper palette.

I am moving the 2 color banner behind the 16 cols man figure however I will give a look to your link, thanks

at the end the suggestion of ross was very good, i made another attempt using the dual playfield mode ad it wasn't so bad.
You can see the full code at

Hi, I was just playing around with your code.
At first just to get it running and see what you made.
I had to replace the stopOS/startOS code with Photon(tm)'s code to stop it from crashing on exit.

Apparently you use the blitter to copy 14 words of jaw-data, which works fine.

But it uses 2 btst's, 7 move.w's and 2 move.l's to setup the blitter and then the blitter has to start doing it's job. Isn't this a bit overkill?

So (after some trial-and-error) I replaced the BLTCPY-MACRO/routine with the following CPUCPY-MACRO/routine:

Warning! This MACRO uses registers d1 to d7, so save it's contents if necessary (which is not a problem in this case)
Code:
CPUCPY:	MACRO
	movem.l	\1,d1-d7		; 7 registers = 14 words
	movem.l	d1-d7,\2
	ENDM
To use this MACRO:
Code:
	; open skull jaw - pasting data using the CPU
	CPUCPY	JAWLOPEN,JAW2		; left
	CPUCPY	JAWROPEN,JAW3		; right
and
Code:
	; close skull jaw - pasting data using the CPU
	CPUCPY	JAWLCLOSED,JAW2		; left
	CPUCPY	JAWRCLOSED,JAW3		; right

Ok not I realized what you did, you use the cpu instead of the blitter to copy data because it's not a huge amount to be copied so the blitter is not so essential.
I used the blitter only because I just wanted to try this feature for the first time but probably your cpu macros is more appropriate. I think i will replace your macro and use the blitter for a scrolling text that I am about to implement.

where can i find the photon startos stopos code?
maybe you are referring to this [ Show youtube player ] ?

Yes, that's the Photon(tm) I was talking about!

The stop-OS code I use is:
Code:
Start:	movem.l	d1-a6,-(sp)		; put registers on stack

;--- save machine state

	move.l	4.w,a6			; a6 = execbase
	move.l	#gfxname,a1		; a1 = gfxname
	jsr	-408(a6)		; open gfxlibrary with oldopenlibrary()
	move.l	d0,a1			; a1 = gfxlibrary
	move.l	38(a1),d4		; d4 = copper state
	jsr	-414(a6)		; close gfxlibrary with closelibrary()

	move.w	$dff01c,d5		; d5 = INTENAR state
	move.w	$dff002,d3		; d3 = DMACON  state

	movem.l	d3-d5,-(sp)		; put registers on stack

;--- turn off OS

	move.w	#$7fff,$dff09a		; disable all bits in INTENA
	move.w	#$7fff,$dff09c		; disable all bits in INTREQ
	move.w	#$7fff,$dff09c		; twice because of amiga4000 hw bug!
	move.w	#$7fff,$dff096		; disable all bits in DMACON
	move.w	#$83a0,$dff096		; enable necessary dma bits
					; blitter off
					; sprites on
P.S. I use this DMACON setup code for this particular program:
Code:
move.w	#$83a0,$dff096		; enable necessary dma bits
which turns-off the blitter, because I removed the BLTCPY-MACRO...

- After this I have all the necessary Initialization-code for Bitplane pointers, sprite pointers, music etc...
- After the Init-code I have the Main-loop

The start-OS code is:
Code:
End:
	movem.l	(sp)+,d3-d5		; pop registers from stack

					;--- restore machine state
	move.w	#$7fff,$dff096		; clear DMACON
	or.w	#$8200,d3		; set bits of DMACON state (d3)
	move.w	d3,$dff096		; restore original DMACON

	move.l	d4,$dff080		; restore original copperlist (d4)

	or.w	#$c000,d5		; set 2 high bits INTENAR state (d5)
	move.w	d5,$dff09a		; restore INTENA state = turn on OS

	movem.l	(sp)+,d1-a6		; pop registers from stack
	moveq	#0,d0			; nice clean
	rts				; exit
Because of the code above I could remove:
Code:
	include exec/types.i
	include exec/libraries.i
	include exec/exec_lib.i
	include graphics/graphics_lib.i
and a lot of MACRO's like:
Code:
	DISABLE	; Disable interrupts 
	OPENGRAPHICS	; Got on GfxBase variable the base of graphics lib
	OWNBLITTER	; Get exclusive use of the blitter

	DISOWNBLITTER
	CLOSEGRAPHICS
	ENABLE

I tried replacing my code with yours and the crash on exit is still there...

here's what happens when I launch the executable

http://adf.ozzyboshi.com/P_20180516_..._vHDR_Auto.jpg

I am not sure it's my fault, I suspect that producing an executable with devpac causes this problem regardlessly of the code.

The error message is in italian but it states that the program was interrupted and to wait the end of the disk activity.

This problem doesn't appear if executind in devpac with ctrl+x.

Do you have the same problem running this file under workbench?

https://github.com/Ozzyboshi/AmigaDe..._crows_dual_pf

Another thing, the instruction

move.w #$83a0,$dff096 ; enable necessary dma bits

was also in my code at line 119 and as you stated this instruction disables the blitter dma, however the subsequent bltcpy macro still works but it shouldn't because of the disabled blitter dma, how it's possible?

binary form is 1000001110100000 , the BLTEN bit is the 6th which is zero, the 15th is one so I am sure it's disabled.

As you can see I changed a LOT of things as I went along. Especially the Movebanner routine, formerly known as the MuoviCopper routine


About the DMACON settings; i'm pretty sure BLTEN is the 7th bit, even though it's called bit 6... see: http://amigadev.elowar.com/read/ADCD.../node002F.html

Update: I wrote the assembled code as a standalone object from AsmTwo and started it from the CLI; it works fine and shows no errors on exit.

Problem here is that you need some Workbench startup code, see:
http://amigadev.elowar.com/read/ADCD.../node0248.html

You can google for an asm version, i've mine but too lazy to search now

Another thing, the instruction
move.w #$83a0,$dff096 ; enable necessary dma bits
Ok, in this instruction you did not activate the blitter DMA, but did you make sure you deactivated it previously?

Without something like
move.w #$40,$dff096
it could be active from a previous situation.
Remember that bit 15 is a SET/CLR bit..

Ok, I looked for.
It's only a snippet from a bigger startup code but the relevant WB startup part is here:


Code:
	movea.l	$4.w,a6
	movea.l	ThisTask(a6),a5
	tst.l	pr_CLI(a5)		; test if CLI
	bne.s	_cli

* we were called from the Workbench

	lea	pr_MsgPort(a5),a0
	jsr	_LVOWaitPort(a6)	; wait for a message
	lea	pr_MsgPort(a5),a0
	jsr	_LVOGetMsg(a6)		; then get it
	move.l	d0,-(sp)		; save it for later reply
	moveq	#0,d0			; no args
	bsr.s	_cli			; call shared code
	jsr	_LVOForbid(a6)		; it prohibits WB to unloadseg me
	movea.l	(sp)+,a1
	jmp	_LVOReplyMsg(a6)	; reply to WB message and exit
	

_cli: ; shared init code...
