O? OK th en, let's try the world's longest sentence: What we're doing here , in plain, but lengthy English, is POKEing the alternate character set, START, plus room for each character, (LOCATION) • 8, plus the 8 bytes that make up each character, plus the offset of letter you'd like to begin with, with the SHAPE of the character you're redefining. Think about it! You don't really have to understand why this line works to program arcade games! Just use it as shown. ) In this example I've used 264 as the offset to redefine the letter A.

If we were redefining more than o ne character , the next character would be assigned to LOCATION 1. I've subracted 1 from CHARACTERS (CHARACTERS - I ) because computers don 't count like we do. Your Atari thinks that LOCATION 0 is the FIRST location , LOCATION 1 is the SECOND location , etc . Who says that co mputers are smart? Whe n they count to 4 , they start with O. So , in a FOR / NEXT loop like FOR X = 0 TO 4, the computer will count FIVE cycles- cheeez! 90 FOR BYTE=O TO 7 56 CHARACTER GRAPHICS Now we make room for each 8-byte character.
