57 bytes for the effects. 199 bytes for the interpreter that runs them.

oh! it's a vm :) probably didn't pay off in the end, but nice to see people attempting crazy stuff.

Inspiring and nerd-sniping!
I've found a few bytes to save in the interpreter: link

Oh wow! You managed to remove quite a few bytes. And even decipher the 3-bit programs! Excellent work. The dithering indeed looks nicer :)

I'm going to release the source and the live editor with sources in a while.

Replacing X, Y with X-64, Y-64 and reading bits in the other direction saves a few more bytes, but it's slipping away from your original: updated link

Great job! Nice colors, many effects.

Crazy... ;)

These are very interesting developments! With these optimizations an intro could easily be written with eight effects, or four even more complicated ones. You're bringing the capabilities right into Memories territory ;)

There are some really interesting things yet to be done, like implementing more complicated instructions, different opcode streams (2-bit, 4-bit, prefix code?) Maybe an editor that can drop custom VMs depending on the instruction set required by the effects?

Cool idea with the interpreter!

I've combined X and Y into one opcode (+9 bytes) and experimented with deeper stack reads (+16 bytes) and subroutine calls (+25 bytes): updated link
The added complexity isn't worth it for these effects, but the calls should be useful for something more complex.

tech&idea thumb =)
i discussed this idea with dojoe and LJ at deadline 2022
curious how small the VM can get, and if it pays of in the end
