Adventures in TV land
The goal of this project was to play a simple game outputted to a television via direct NTSC signal generation into a composite video input of a television. Obviously, the outputting of material to a television is the most challenging part of this project (and not one to be taken lightly). Much of the information needed to produce the NTSC signals were derived from http://www.efd.lth.se/%7Ee96rg/mc/video/rtvideo.html which is also linked off the course home page. After many arduous attempts, we were able to do a few simple things at first and eventually built up to having a nice screen buffer and character library for which many applications can be found above and beyond Tic-Tac-Toe.
Why do this project?
