New tutorial on BOBs

Hi


For those who need some basic code to start with BOBs in assembly language, I just published this article :


http://www.stashofcode.fr/afficher-s...s-sur-amiga-2/


Written in french, but if you don't read french and are looking for code, just download the archive that contains those basic samples :

bobRAW.s for displaying a a BOB in RAW format

bobRAWB.s for displaying a BOB in RAW Blitter format

unlimitedBobs.s for using BOBs in the unlimited BOBs FX

vectorBalls.s for using BOBs in the vector balls FX

Have fun!

Cool tutorials. Thanks!

I've tried compiling a couple but am getting compiler errors using Devpac 3.

I've attached a screenshot. Anyone got any clues about the errors?

In the first errors you should change addi.w in add.w;in the others you should use dcb.b instead of blk.b

I added perfectBob.s to the ZIP file.

It is an enhanced version of bobRAWB.s: it displays a BOB that is masked (ie: the BOB may contain transparent pixels) and that is cleared from the background between frames (ie: the whole background is not cleared between frames, which saves a lot of time when there are numerous bitplanes).

Note that using masks to recover only the pixels of the rectangular area of the background that the BOB hides is certainly not the fastest way to recover the background if this background did not change between frames. A better option would be to recover all the WORDs that the BOB hides even partially, which means copying a WORD-aligned part of the background without masking any part of it. Still, a precise recovering routine may be useful. Moreover, it is another interesting example of one usage of the Blitter.

So, the code contains three routines that use data structures :

_drawBOB draws the BOB

_clearBOB recovers the background behind the BOB with a pixel precision

_clearBOBFast recovers the background behind the BOB with a WORD precision

The files bobRAW.s and bobRAWB.s have been updated in the archive. Sorry guys : the previous ones were bad versions, with no masking.
