EVE Screen Editor - Flash Storage Options
« on: April 05, 2019, 05:39:49 PM »

Hi

Testing EVE Screen Editor (BT815) with  different storage options, Embedded and Flash options. Msvc_Emulator under MS Visual Studio works 100% OK for Embedded option but the same image is not displayed when I changed it to Flash options.

Is Flash options supported for Msvc Emulator? Do I need to change code manually in Coprocessor list to make it work? I also notice that for both Embedded and Flash options the generated coprocessor list is the same, listed below:

BITMAP_HANDLE(0)
CMD_SETBITMAP(0, RGB565, 240, 423)
BEGIN(BITMAPS)
VERTEX2II(0, 0, 0, 0)
END()

When Embedded options is selected a constant array is generated in .h file. However, for Flash options there is nothing generated to represent the data array. Any suggestion?

Hello,

Eve Screen Editor does not currently support the generation of a flash block containing selected assets.

Our Eve Asset Builder utility can be sued to generate flash images:

It is important to note that only images in the ASTC format can be rendered directly from flash. You may
need copy other format bitmaps into RAM_G by cmd_flashread and render them from RAM_G.
