.write_pod JSR tube_get \ Get the parameters from the parasite for the command: STA ESCP \ JSR tube_get \ write_pod(escp, hfx) STA HFX \ \ and store them as follows: \ \ * ESCP = the new value of ESCP \ \ * HFX = the new value of HFX RTS \ Return from the subroutineName: write_pod [Show more] Type: Subroutine Category: Dashboard Summary: Implement the write_pod command (show the correct palette for the dashboard and hyperspace tunnel)Context: See this subroutine in context in the source code References: This subroutine is called as follows: * tube_table calls write_pod
This routine is run when the parasite sends a write_pod command. It sets the I/O processor's ESCP and HFX flags to ensure that the correct palette is shown for the dashboard and hyperspace tunnel (ESCP affects the dashboard and HFX affects the hyperspace tunnel).
Configuration variable: ESCP = &0386
The flag that determines whether we have an escape pod fitted, matching the address in the main game code
Configuration variable: HFX = &0348
A flag that toggles the hyperspace colour effect, matching the address in the main game code
As the I/O processor, fetch a byte that's been sent over the Tube from the parasite
