Drawing pixels: CTWOS (6502SP version)

Name: CTWOS [View in context] Type: Variable [Compare versions] Category: Drawing pixels Summary: Ready-made single-pixel character row bytes for mode 5 Deep dive: Drawing colour pixels in mode 5
This table is not used by the 6502 Second Processor version of Elite. Instead, the CTWOS table in the I/O processor code is used, which contains single-pixel character row bytes for the mode 2 dashboard. There is one extra row to support the use of CTWOS+1,X indexing in the CPIX2 routine. The extra row is a repeat of the first row, and saves us from having to work out whether CTWOS+1+X needs to be wrapped around when drawing a two-pixel dash that crosses from one character block into another. See CPIX2 for more details.
