Very good graphics, on uae it is cool game on real hardware too slow.


It's pretty smooth on Amiga 500+Wicher 508i's 68000 from 25Mhz to 50Mhz. I run BitplaneBG sample demo on Amos Pro 2.0.

Thank you, guys!

Last week I analyzed the code produced by the AMOS Professional Compiler and changed the ALS code in order to have the compiler output the most efficient code it is capable of. Contextually, I have also added a new little feature (palette segments), updated two demos and improved the documentation constantly.
This week I'm continuing the review of the documentation and constantly improving it. Once done, (hopefully) it will only be a matter of preparing a web page before ALS gets released.

VIDEO PREVIEW #5

Since last time, I improved/fixed a few things, revised greatly the documentation and updated the programs shown in the video. I also prepared the project web page: https://www.retream.com/ALS (redirects to https://retream.itch.io/als).
Currently I'm continuing to revise the documentation iteratively: when no more corrections are needed, ALS will be released - and I hope to make that happen this week.

@saimo

demo is pretty cool...

just for understanding... you use AGA for it (256 colors)?

How does it integrate with "standard AMOS" commands?

For example regarding sprite or bob handling? Normally all AMOS commands do not support AGA

ALS adapts to the chipset of the machine it runs on. If it finds AGA, it can do more.
The "ghosts" demo (the first demo in the latest video) runs on OCS/ECS.

The answer is in the description
"ALS" stands for "AMOS Layers System" (formerly "MLS" = "Multi-Layer System"), as it turns the screens of AMOS Professional ("AMOS" from now on) into layers that can be laid over one another, with complete control of order, colors and trasparency, while keeping them renderable as usual.
It is easy to use, does not require much knowledge of the Amiga graphics hardware, does not require installation or extensions, and comes as a set variables, arrays and procedures written in fully-commented AMOS code - it can be thought of as an AMOS source-level library.

It took longer than I thought, but finally ALS is out!
Get it for free from https://www.retream.com/ALS.
I hope that it will be useful to somebody, and that some day I'll get to see a cool game made with it ;)
