I only have one idea at the moment: would it be possible to do sprites and the tilemap in a similar way that Omnicalc does, using any height, and any width divisible by 8 (so you can have 8hx8w or 12hx8w, or 12hx16w), something like that. Or even just make it have to be some factor of 8 for both, that way if I make a game using 16x8 sprites, I don't have to think too much in order to make it work well.

I think that i will be able to add support for tiles > 95. But i wouldnt get too excited about isometric tilemaps.

Oooh... too bad, that would make my old isometric Lego Creator actually usable (takes Omnicalc ~10 seconds to render the screen, depending on the number of pieces).

If I had a isometric tilemapper, I probably would have made my metroid rpg

Yeah, not actually that hard to make... and slow as hell. Plus its Kerm Martian. He's the reason we get no respect.

Easy way I just thought of to hack around using only two pages for sprites... First off, have pic0 and pic1 be filled with sprites you want, and also a blank pic9 or something. At the beginning of the program, have it copy pic0 into the first page, then recall pic0 to the screen, save it to pic9, clear screen, recall pic1, save to pic0, copy to page 2. Now, you want more pages? Recall pic2 (also filled with sprites), save to pic0, copy to whichever page you want to overwrite, and etc. with pic3, 4, 5, so on. This could be useful if you want different tilesets for different areas, like forests, caves, towns, etc.

Of course, the option to copy any pic to one of the pages would also be nice...

but it would be handy if it could do this by itself without consuming any extra clocks...I had starded an isometric metroid rpg...but I never got far into it because of screen rendering speed

I certainly hope you were using Omnicalc... I tried to do a similar thing once (a Lego Creator game) but it was too slow, it took several seconds just to render the screen.
