Where "A" has one of the following values:
|*Remember that the BANK ADDRESS of the VIC-II chip must be added in. You must also tell the KERNAL'S screen editor where the screen is as follows: POKE 648, page (where page = address/256, e.g., 1024/256= 4, so POKE 648,4).|
Color memory can NOT move. It is always located at locations 55296 ($D800) through 56295 ($DBE7). Screen memory (the 1000 locations starting at 1024) and color memory are used differently in the different graphics modes. A picture created in one mode will often look completely different when displayed in another graphics mode.
Exactly where the VIC-II gets it character information is important to graphic programming. Normally, the chip gets the shapes of the characters you want to be displayed from the CHARACTER GENERATOR ROM. In this chip are stored the patterns which make up the various letters, numbers, punctuation symbols, and the other things that you see
