Specialized Graphics

I and many VIC users in my area feel that it is time to start offering many "draw" and other graphic routines in both BASIC and machine language for the VIC-20. We would also like to see some animation techniques such as moving stars in the background or rotating characters in place on the screen. These and other arcade-type animations are what I'm sure a large majority of your readers would like to see. I am asked by friends how to do some of these things, and I have no answers. Would you please ask the readers or would your magazine please do an article or articles on this badly neglected topic?

We are always interested in articles which describe various graphics techniques. "Understanding VIC High Resolution Graphics" (COMPUTE!, December 1982) is one such article. A good source of graphics information is also to be found in the explanations which accompany the games we publish every month.
