VASYL registers

Read/write registers accessible to both 6510 and VASYL itself.

Address:bit(s) Name Width [bits] Description
$D031 CONTROL 8 Main control register. Also used to activate BeamRacer after boot or Run/Stop-Restore by writing values “B” ($42, 66 dec) followed by “R” ($52, 82 dec).
$D031:210 RAMBANK 3 Number of a memory bank (0 to 7) accessible through ports.
$D031:3 DLIST_ON 1 When set to “1”, display list execution will start at the beginning of the next frame.
When set to “0”, display list execution stops immediately.
$D031:4 PORT_READ_ENABLE 1 When “1” data can be read from both memory ports.
$D031:5 GRAYDOT_KILL 1 “1” disables HMOS VIC-II grey dots visible on CPU writes to currently active color register.
“0” - dots are visible as usual.
$D031:76 RESERVED 2 RESERVED.
$D032 DLISTL 8 Lo-byte of address from which execution of Display List will start at the beginning of the next frame or after a write to DLSTROBE ($D03E).
$D033 DLISTH 8 Hi-byte of address from which execution of Display List will start at the beginning of the next frame or after a write to DLSTROBE ($D03E).
$D034 ADR0L 8 Lo-byte of address in VASYL memory to read from or write to
$D035 ADR0H 8 Hi-byte of address in VASYL memory to read from or write to
$D036 STEP0 8 Value in range [-128, 127] added to ADR0(LH) after each access to PORT0
$D037 PORT0 8 Writing stores a byte at location ADR0(LH) in currently active bank of VASYL memory.
Reading returns a byte from that location (provided PORT_READ_ENABLE bit in CTRL1 ($D031) is set to “1”).
$D038 ADR1L 8 Lo-byte of address in VASYL memory to read from or write to
$D039 ADR1H 8 Hi-byte of address in VASYL memory to read from or write to
$D03A STEP1 8 Value in range [-128, 127] added to ADR1(LH) after each access to PORT1
$D03B PORT1 8 Writing stores a byte at location ADR1(LH) in currently active bank of VASYL memory.
Reading returns a byte from that location (provided PORT_READ_ENABLE bit in CTRL1 ($D031) is set to “1”).
$D03C REP0 8 Repeats latest write to PORT0 given number of times. “0” repeats 256 times.
$D03D REP1 8 Repeats latest write to PORT1 given number of times. “0” repeats 256 times.
$D03E DLSTROBE 8 Writing to this register will start execution of Display List pointed to by DLIST(LH) from the next cycle.
On reads returns VASYL version in bits 3-7 and VIC-II autoconfiguration data in bits 0-2:
000 - NTSC (6567R8 or 8562)
110 - PAL (6569 or 8565)
100 - PAL-N (6572)
011 - NTSC (6567R56A)

Write-only registers, accessible only to VASYL (have to be written to by a Display List).

Address:bit(s) Name Width [bits] Description
$D040 PBS_CONTROL 8 Programmable Bitmap Sequencer control register
$D040:210 S_RAMBANK 3 Number of memory bank (0 to 7) that bitmap sequencer fetches data from.
$D040:3 S_ACTIVE 1 Value of “1” activates the bitmap sequencer.
$D040:54 S_UPDATE 2 Controls when sequencer's bitmap pointer is updated:
00 - only on manual writes,
01 - at the right edge of current sequencer window,
10 - at every byte processed by the sequencer,
11 - reserved
$D040:76 S_SWIZZLE 2 Controls the order of bits that sequencers output to the screen:
“00” - bytes are shifted out by the sequencer as is (76543210).
“01” - bytes are shifted out in reverse bit order, e.g. LSB is the leftmost, MSB is the rightmost (01234567)
“10” - bytes are shifted out as reversed bit pairs (10325476)
“11” - reserved, do not use.
$D041 DLIST2L 8 Lo-byte of address from which execution of Display List will start after a write to DL2STROBE.
$D042 DLIST2H 8 Hi-byte of address from which execution of Display List will start after a write to DL2STROBE.
$D043 DL2STROBE 8 Writing to this register will start execution of Display List pointed to by DLIST2(LH) from the next cycle. If MSB is set, also the RAM bank used by the Display List will change based on bits 0-2.
$D044 S_BASEL 8 Lo-byte of address of memory location to fetch bitmap data from. Writes to this register by default do not update internal 16-bit bitmap sequencer register.
$D045 S_BASEH 8 Hi-byte of address of memory location to fetch bitmap data from. Writes to SBASEH update internal 16-bit bitmap sequencer register with both SBASEL and SBASEH simultaneously.
$D046 S_CYC_START 6 Number of the first rasterline cycle to perform bitmap sequencer operation.
$D047 S_CYC_STOP 6 Number of the first rasterline cycle to cease bitmap sequencer operation.
$D048 S_STEP_L 8 Lo-byte of a value added to bitmap sequencer's internal memory pointer after every fetch.
$D049 S_STEP_H 8 Hi-byte of a value added to bitmap sequencer's internal memory pointer after every fetch.
$D04A S_PADDING_L 8 Lo-byte of a value added to bitmap sequencer's internal memory pointer at the end of every line.
$D04B S_PADDING_H 8 Hi-byte of a value added to bitmap sequencer's internal memory pointer at the end of every line.
