Re: Port system documentation updated

should_draw_pixel(x,y) = ((x1 < x2) ^ ((x1 <= x) ^ (x <= x2))) && ((y1 < y2) ^ ((y1 <= y) ^ (y <= y2))) (^ is XOR, && is AND)

Does seem a bit expensive when you can easily do ( and its a lot easier to read )

should_draw_pixel(x,y) = (x >= x1 ) && (x <= x2 ) && ( y>=y1) && (y<=y2)

Re: "Pimping" old games to have no attribute clash possible?

No is the simple answer , the more complex answer is the game would have to be taken to bits , the drawing code removed and replaced with 8 bit drawing functions , the old 1 bit graphics removed and replaced with 8 bit graphics , the game then needs to be rebuilt ( things have moved about ) and / or...

Re: How Many Units in the 1st Cased Boxed Run?
