Question about chr to chr-ram!

Question about chr to chr-ram!
by on (#103527)
I try to convert a chr to chr-ram!
here is the code:
Code:
 LDY #$0    ; starting index into the first page
 STY $2001  ; turn off rendering just in case
 STY $2006  ; load the destination address into the PPU
 STY $2006
 
 LDX #$20   ; number of 256-byte pages to copy
 
loop:
  LDA ($0000),Y; $0000 is address at 0x8000
  STA $2007
  INY
  BNE loop  ; repeat until we finish the page
  LDA $1
  ADC #$1
  STA $1  ; go to the next page
  DEX 
  BNE loop  ; repeat until we've copied enough pages


But some time the cram is wrong!
some data is malposed!

Probably didn't turn off rendering, you can't touch the PPU Data Port during rendering.

His very first two lines shows a 0 write to $2001.

But NMIs might still be firing. Try disabling NMIs as well, if they aren't already disabled in unseen code.

Always wrong :(

Sorry, I use labels for those ports in my code so I didn't think he wrote to any ports like that just giving it a 5 second look. But yeah, NMI's could fire, you may not be declaring CHR-RAM in the header...hmmm...would it be impossible to get a source?

ETA: You can make the outer loop INC $01,DEX,BNE btw.

Another issue could be it's incremented by 32 instead of 1. If you end up writing to $2000 to disable NMIs, make sure you also set it to increment by one. Another issue is this:

Code:
LDA $1
  ADC #$1
  STA $1  ; go to the next page

You don't clear the carry flag before this add, so it could be adding 2, not 1 sometimes.

Also, in this case inc $1 in place of the load, add, store would do the same thing.

It‘s ok now!
Thank you and the same to Kasumi!
