PED81C - pseudo-native, no C2P chunky screens for AGA

PED81C is a video system for AGA Amigas that provides pseudo-native chunky screens, i.e. screens where each byte in CHIP RAM corresponds to a dot on the display. In short, it offers chunky screens without chunky-to-planar conversion or any CPU/Blitter/Copper sweat.

Download: https://www.retream.com/PED81C

These videos show a few examples:
* https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4eikEo45v1I
* https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLtLhJXInOY
Notes:
* due to the nature of the system, the videos must be watched in their original size (1920x1080);
* YouTube's video processing has slightly reduced the visual quality (i.e. the result is better on real machines).

For the details, please check out the documentation included in the archive.

Originally I had planned to use PED81C to make a new game. However, I could not come up with a satisfactory idea; moreover, due to personal reasons, I had to stop software development (which I hope to return to one day). Given that I cannot predict when/if I will able to produce something with PED81C and given that the war started by Putin has put the world in deep uncertainty, I decided that it was better to release PED81C to avoid that it went wasted and also as a gift to the Amiga community.

@saimo

Thanks for sharing PED81C. Can you tell us any more about it? I'm interested in how you technically made it possible?

Yes I downloaded it and watched the videos but a brief description would be good before I unpack it.

An idea? How about Doom? Yes it's been done to death but Amiga people seem to love it.

3d tends to come to mind first when chunky is mentioned.

Of course there is possibility of interesting 2d using chunky methods.

The documentation in the archive contains all the information you could possibly ever want

I don't, though!

Sure, plenty of possibilities...
