 Reading, storing and writing screen values oblo Member Posts: 97 Threads: 23 Joined: Jul 2011 Reputation: 0 03-05-2013, 05:33 PM Hi all I'm starting to learn how to manipulate screen directly at memory address level. Right now, I'm messing with this code Code:```rem screen values paper 0: border 0: ink 7: cls dim conta as byte dim x,y,n,adres,dirb as uinteger bucle: y=RND*10 x=RND*32 adres=0 POKE attrAddress(x,y),RND*256 Print at 10,0; "X="; x; " - "; "Y="; y; print at 11,0; "Attrib address is.......: "; attrAddress(x,y); print at 12,0; "Attrib value is.........: "; PEEK attrAddress(x,y); print at 13,0; "The 8 screen addresses..: " for conta=0 to 7         poke scrAddress(x,y)+adres,RND*256         print scrAddress(x,y)+adres;","; PEEK (scrAddress(x,y)+adres)         adres=adres+256 next conta pause 0 cls goto bucle rem funciones FUNCTION scrAddress(x AS UBYTE, y AS UBYTE) AS UINTEGER ASM ; This FUNCTION returns the address into HL of the screen address ; x,y in character grid notation. ; Original CODE was extracted by BloodBaz          ; x Arrives in A, y is in stack.          AND     31          ld      l,a          ld      a,(IX+7) ; Y value          ld      d,a          AND     24          add     a,64          ld      h,a          ld      a,d          AND     7          rrca          rrca          rrca          OR      l          ld      l,a                END ASM END FUNCTION FUNCTION attrAddress (x AS UBYTE, y AS UBYTE) AS UINTEGER 'This function returns the memory address of the Character Position 'x,y in the attribute screen memory. 'Adapted from code by Jonathan Cauldwell. 'Rebuilt for ZX BASIC by Britlion from NA_TH_AN's fourspriter, with permission. ASM          ld      a,(IX+7)  ;ypos          rrca          rrca          rrca              ; Multiply by 32          ld      l,a       ; Pass TO L          AND     3         ; Mask with 00000011          add     a,88      ; 88 * 256 = 22528 - start of attributes.          ld      h,a       ; Put it in the High BYTE          ld      a,l       ; We get y value *32          AND     224       ; Mask with 11100000          ld      l,a       ; Put it in L          ld      a,(IX+5)  ; xpos          add     a,l       ; Add it TO the Low BYTE          ld      l,a       ; Put it back in L, AND we're done. HL=Address. END ASM END FUNCTION``` Questions are: - Are there any better options to read and write given a X and Y coordinates? - What is the best way to storage screen memory addresses and their values? Integer (for addresses) and Ubyte (for values) arrays, right? Thanks and regards « Next Oldest | Next Newest »
