Dear visitors and members, with the staff having moved on to other life interests and as a result of changes in people's internet usage habits, the CodeWalrus community have migrated almost entirely to Discord, IRC and WalrusIRC and is now essentially a place where to hang out, chat about gaming, programming, music, anime, and chill. As a result, even though the CW forums will remain open for posting, for faster TI, Casio or HP calculator help and news we recommend using the bilingual TI-Planet forums instead.

##### Help with ASM Christmas Tree project
« on: December 31, 2015, 07:35:39 pm »
Hello! Because I am still learning ASM, I'll need a little bit of help here on a Christmas Tree project. It's on Cemetech, but I'd figured that it would be better to ask on other forums, and not just Cemetech.
Code: [Select]
`HL is the sprite dataSomehow get A to be the sprite height and BC to be the sprite widthDE must point to the top-left pixel of where the sprite will go.(Put the loop label here)    push bc ; Save the sprite width for later on    push de ; Save the current pixel for later on    ldir ; Does "ld (de),(hl) \  inc hl \ inc de \ dec bc" until BC=0 (so effectively it copies BC bytes from (HL) to (DE)    pop de ; Grab the far left pixel of the current row    ld bc,320    ex de,hl ; Swap HL and DE temporarily so we can add a number into DE    add hl,bc ; Add 320 to the screen pixel pointer (normally DE, but we swapped it with HL) to advance to the next row on the screen    ex de,hl ; Swap them back to normal    pop bc ; Retrieve the sprite width again    dec a    jr nz,LoopLabel    ; "dec a \ jr nz" is basically DJNZ but using the A register instead of B.nolist#include "includes\ti84pce.inc".list .org userMem-2ProgramStart: .db tExtTok,tAsm84CeCmp;...;---> 8bpp picture ld a,lcdBpp8 ld (mpLcdCtrl),a ld hl,christmastree_paletteStart    ; palette mem ld de,mpLcdPalette ld bc,christmastree_paletteEnd-christmastree_paletteStart ldir ld hl,christmastree_sprite call drawSprite8bpp;... ld a,lcdBpp16 ld (mpLcdCtrl),a ret#include "christmastree.bin"`And for reference, I would like it to look something like this, but minus the curves.

Am I right? Or am I doing something wrong in the above code?

Sounds like a good start to ASM! Will the lights be blinking?

Thanks. But please... Next time, if you don't know anything, please don't post. Just trying to point something out.

Note, @caleb1997 , that CodeWalrus etiquette is different from Cemetech.

Yeah, encouragement is welcome here. There is nothing wrong with his post, it's not counter productive so it's a valid comment.

I apologize.

In light of that, I ask a question: Can somebody please help me develop a sprite routine? Because it looks like it'll be a while until I can get to a generator (I know of a few, though) that can make one for me, and rather than waiting for access to a generator, I've decided to write my own sprite routine. Plus it'll give me something to do.

So... How would I get started?

Hm you might need to ask on Cemetech, since CodeWalrus doesn't have any Z80 ASM programmer currently active. But in case one passes by I will rename your topic so that it looks like an actual help topic.
