Playing with the 4884 shield for the Arduino, Graphics, done in Assembly. I hate Assembly. However, an app does exist that will turn a .bmp file that is monochrome in to the code for you.
So this is my first pic (not animated, just a pic) that i did by my self. Graphic done in the Gimp, use BMP2ASM for the raw data values, adjusted the code for Arduino and the LCD shield.
here is a pastebin link if you want to see the code. The Graphics ASM code is fricking huge, just for that simple picture [link]
UPDATE: Moved the "mariobmp" to a seperate .h (mariobmp.h) file and load the graphic by a call. Very nice as how it frees up having to see a top of ASM code in the Arduino IDE.
And Yes, I drew the pic in the Gimp, it is an 84x48 black and white BMP file, done the old fashioned way, Pixel by Pixel.
The final plan for this thing is for me to get a working Pong on this thing... See that one small button in the bottom left hand side? Thats a "5 degrees of freedom" button, AKA a mini-primitive joystick. the 5th "degree" is actually pushing in the stick, you know, like a button.
Anyway, more soon i hope.
