I guess from the discussion that the demo is using intra frame compression, that is, it's compressing each frame separately; using inter frame compression, that is, just storing the differences between each frame would probably yield better results. About the bankswitching: well, by designing a cust...

In GINCS there are commands. And for making game there, you need to write code, in same meaning like in SGDK, just another syntax. Yes, it's a DSL (Domain Specific Language); as such, it allows people to program in a more declarative way, with a simpler syntax, but can also be quite limiting in com...
