Maybe you should allow rectfill so that people can easily have background colors for text?

Or if not, I guess they could paste Glyph "A" (solid block) a bit to accomplish the same thing..

@enargy

You can make cls() be any color

try putting in "cls(7)"

@PixelBytes that's true, but I meant something a little different. It's easily doable without using rectfill though, so not a big deal:

What's an "image hack"?

Is CURSOR allowed? I'm thinking you could (albeit inefficiently) build up an entire image just by coloring and moving a fullstop character around.

(Perhaps this is just "against the spirit" of the Text Jam...)

That's what I was curious about. :)

Maybe they mean peek and poke starting at 0x6000..?

@PixelBytes, the people wanna know! :P

Might be interesting if there were a limit to how many characters you can draw per frame.
