This is a new video development series I am currently doing on stream @ www.twitch.tv/OldSkoolCoder
This development series is about creating our own set of BASIC Commands that will allow us to do graphics with in BASIC programs for the Commodore 64.
We will discover how to make your own BASIC Interpreter extensions for the commands we are about to develop as well as understand how we can store and retrieve bits in memory and display on the C64 screen.
In this episode we continue to develop the BASIC Commands for this BASIC Extension, this episode we look closely at how to work out the pixel points required in the bitmap, and how to read back the byte location of the pixel points. This then creates the second two commands in BASIC we need, which are “PLOT” and “RPOINT”.
I hope you find this interesting, as this is more of an application style development instead of game style development.
