Looks good but... if we process .png from archive via TinyPNG result is 6 360 bytes - ordinary compression is very close to 4k in this prod

Nice but yes, gets even down to 5700 bytes as an optimised PNG so perhaps could have some extra procedural tricks.

Well, it's done in 4k which was the goal. IMHO it doesn't matter how "large" the picture originally or even in crunched form is.

Not sure if many sizecoders would agree that 6360 bytes is "very close to 4k" :) Cute one!

Aye cute indeed. Lovely palette

6360 bytes? Is a KB 1590 bytes now?
added on the 2017-09-08 15:02:02 by cruzer cruzer
@cruzer: exe file size = 4064B - please check the archive before commenting :)
@unbeliever: fullsize screenshot filesize (.png) = 13kb - of course its possible to compress image better but:
a) our release is gfx exe - not png
b) it could be hard to display 720x576 (hi-lace) 25 color png on stock a500 without tricks :)
...btw - there is no bitmap gfx in this exe
@magic: nice ref!

thanks for nice comments guys !!

Is the mirrored floor done using the copper to flip the top part around? :)
added on the 2017-09-11 05:59:55 by rloaderro rloaderro
@rloaderror: yes, via negative bitplane modulo.

On the technical side - copper is also used to set up background bars. There was a small challenge with crossing the rasterline 256, as with 4 bitplane hires overscan (ddfstop=$d8) copper never reaches position $ddfd. DMA is just too busy fetching bitplane data to give a copper free slot. So there is a quick switch in line 255 to ddfstop=$d0 just to recover value to $d8 in the line 256. This way copper wait works as expected. Run an exe and you'll spot a small thing out there ;)

Also, for tech-savvies, vertical bars are composed of DMAless sprites (sprite dma disabled, SPRxDAT loaded).

Anyway, thanks for nice feedback everybody!
