An issue I am really grappeling with is… Is the propeller really the best choice? I can’t seem to find a good video chip to make an argument for. If any of you know of one please let me know.
The problem with the prop is quite frankly memory. I keep thinking well maybe I create a circuit that uses an external memory chip that could pump the propeller with bytes based on an adress counter. You pulse it, another 8 bits appear on the propeller for the chip to read, translate and send out to the RCA jack. I really want he whole 64k instead of 32k from the prop… that would make me at least somewhat happy.
I do love the idea of programmable hardware but I don’t see people who would use the fez to write a game actually wanting to mess with the video driver so much as drawing on the screen.
Just weighing options. Any thoughts from you guys?
