How to get a fast 2x2-FLI routine
on 20 Jul 2011
How to get a fast 2x2-FLI routine by Wolfram Sang (Ninja/The Dreams - www.the-dreams.de) ====================================================== Shortly before X2004, Oswald/Resource asked me if I could do a 2x2-FLI routine, which is fast enough to have some extra cycles for the main routine while displaying the FLI. That was an interesting problem, so maybe the things I came up with may be inspiring for you, too. To see the routine in action, have a look for the demo "REAL" by Resource and The Dreams. If it wasn't for such a routine, no one would probably have dared to do a tunnel and the julia-effect in such a resolution, because it would have [read more]

When built by oneself, the following memory expansion should have costed 300–400 Finnishmarks. [read more]
