I was reading at RGCD about an Amiga game currently in development. I did not expect to get lectured on coding, but I that's what happened!

[quote]To use the 32 colour mode, Powerglove uses a second way of generating a parallax effect, which makes use of the largely unknown fact that the same sprite can be displayed multiple times in the same row when reset by the copper.[/quote]

I had no idea you could fill a scanline with just one sprite like that. Thought it was worth sharing!

Nice read.
but i would not go as far as calling this a "largely unknown fact", as this have been used in several games before, and even in some demos.

some games with this trick explained, can be found at codetapper.com
