PED81C - pseudo-native, no C2P chunky screens for AGA
« on: March 05, 2022, 10:29:14 AM »
PED81C is a video system for AGA Amigas that provides pseudo-native chunky screens, i.e. screens where each byte in CHIP RAM corresponds to a dot on the display. In short, it offers chunky screens without chunky-to-planar conversion or any CPU/Blitter/Copper sweat.

These videos show a few examples:
* https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4eikEo45v1I
* https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLtLhJXInOY
 * due to the nature of the system, the videos must be watched in their original size (1920x1080);
 * YouTube's video processing has slightly reduced the visual quality (i.e. the result is better on real machines).

For the details, please check out the documentation included in the archive.

Originally I had planned to use PED81C to make a new game. However, I could not come up with a satisfactory idea; moreover, due to personal reasons, I had to stop software development (which I hope to return to one day). Given that I cannot predict when/if I will able to produce something with PED81C and given that the war started by Putin has put the world in deep uncertainty, I decided that it was better to release PED81C to avoid that it went wasted and also as a gift to the Amiga community.
