I know i posted a lot but this one should be my last in this thread, it took me awhile to understand but I totally get it now but for anyone reading this that still dont get it i guess i can give you my take on it in as well. (pic related)

16 bytes all together
First 8 is the lower plane that creates its own version of the 8x8
Second 8 is higher plane that creates its own version of the 8x8 as well
Each 1 byte in the 8 represents a line across on the tile
Convert each byte from hex into its binary and put the planes in binary format on top of each other as in the picture
When layed on top of each other you get 4 different possibilities (the colors) between the two planes
--------------------
0 1 0 1                                                                                                               
0 0 1 1
---------------------



0 = black
0

1 = green
0

0 = blue
1

1 = teal
1

for some inane reason

Simpler hardware design.

You can have a different shift register for each plane, and can change which bit you extract depending on the fine horizontal scroll.  You could accomplish the same thing with a more traditional 2bpp graphics format but it would probably require more circuitry.

but to have someone tell me an editor isnt changing the hex values in the rom makes me laugh.

I think it was pretty obvious that I was referring to the address...  It makes me laugh when someone completely misunderstands my post right after I completely misunderstand theirs  :D  :crazy:.

Fair enough, but i have to admit i didnt explain what i was asking about very well to begin with. Take in to consideration that i was clueless about the topic when i started this thread. Everythings good now, aint nothing left to do but implement what iv learned here.

Still?!?!?   :banghead:

Rotwang just fixed the permissions to allow non-members to view imagery...   :huh:

This has nothing to do with members or non-members of a site.

Most servers, including that one, block hotlinking to prevent bandwidth stealing.

Just use a image hosting server like everybody else in the world. Imgur is the best and most popular one, you should learn how to use it.

Hotlinking has worked just fine before. Rotwang turned certain permissions off last week to experiment with blocking Russian spambots.

Yeah, I already tried Imgur twice and it sucked lobster dick both times (see prior thread). PostImg seems to be working, though.  :)

I know you did. That's why I said "you should learn how to use it."

PostImg is a huge piece of shit and it doesn't work at all for anybody else. Only works for you because, again, you already have that image in your browser cache.

My final advice: Stop using shitty servers and learn how to use Imgur.

Que?

go to imgur.com, click on "upload", drag+drop image (or click browse and select it), copy/paste link.

It's about as simple as possible.

Also if you are using PostImg it does not appear to be working, because I still haven't seen any image you have posted.


EDIT:

See how easy it is?

Have I been rude or unprofessional towards you?

I'm sure it is. Which means there's no learning curve involved; Imgur simply isn't working on my end. I gave it permissions via No$cript and AdBlock and it still wouldn't cooperate. I tried a different browser. Still nothing. Exactly how much time am I supposed to waste before I'm allowed to just try some other imagehost?

weird.  Have you tried tinypic?  They're my #2

Thank the great good Lord.

And thank you, Mr. Disch. I'll be using TinyPic henceforth.

Error happens if you don't use a mouse click at all when selecting a picture. Just don't use the keyboard for everything.
