HTML viewer for MSX proof of concept (2)

This time I write text with (unoptimised) direct VDP access (which I just implemented in the hour since the previous video). I’m also viewing a larger page than before, one of the msx.org threads. Turns out the scrolling of the screen is actually the primary bottleneck. Unfortunately I can’t use the VDP scroll register for this as I’d originally hoped (considering that, screen 6 may actually be faster than screen 0!).

In the second half of the video I clear the screen after each page of text has been displayed rather than scrolling, which shows more of the raw processing speed. Note, still unoptimised, though I’m sure a real proper implementation would have additional processing overhead as well so probably it somewhat balances out.

Grauw your example is very cool to see! I'm surprised how good it works and how fast it is.

thinking it further, it quickly goes out of RAM.
what about reading the .html again and again.
a html GET can go from a file offset?
I imagine that ethernet is as fast as an ide drive.
