Techniques for Games Using Tilesets

I found this gem while web surfing and thought it would be relevant here. With the Arduboy’s limited memory capacity, every byte is gold. I’m pretty sure more than a few of you use these tricks already, but beginners may not know what to look for when trying to make their first big game fit.


I don’t mean to rain on your parade, but @acedent posted this two months ago:

I guess it must be a pretty popular video.

Whoops! Well, the video(and the information in it) is good stuff. It won’t hurt to have it in one more place.
Sorry for the post-steal! @acedent


I watched the video and the techniques look really cool! :grinning:

I’ve got one question however: how do you convert tiles to meta-tiles to meta-meta-tiles with code?

Team arg has some examples in their technical sections.
