 Help - Virtual Graphics Screen (320,000x200,000x256)

hate to be a wet blanket but i think your being just a wee bit ambitious
this equates to about 1000000 mode $13 pages . Also if youg don't want any
disk accessing you will need 640mb. why not scale it down a bit to say
32,000 x 20,000. i know this doesn't answer your question but i
implemented something similar a defined a screen buffer .
drew to that then put that onto the screen.
{ this routine i did myself in assembler it's not that hard }

10x10 is a bit small for background tiles a better size is 20x20 as the
bigger the tile the faster to fill up the screen because you don't have to
use as much excess code.

i know this probably won't help much but if you do need the world that
large why not divide into separate worlds and completely load a world as
the player moves into it?
