Slideshow explaining what it does and is -> https://smcameron.github.io/space-nerds ... how.html#1

There have been a few previous threads about this stuff on here, but he's just now split it into a separate repository on GitHub.

Video describing how DMA and HDMA were used for visual effects in the SNES. Really interesting watch, nicely explained.

I just read this article on the wavefuction collapse for procedural generation of content. Very understandable, if one has zero knowledge going into it.

https://robertheaton.com/2018/12/17/wav ... algorithm/
Most implementations and explanations of Wavefunction Collapse are of a full, performance-optimized version of the algorithm. These are of course important and necessary, but can be challenging to make sense of from a standing start. This post keeps things clear and simple by focussing on a constrained version of Wavefunction Collapse

That's a great use of Portal rendering tricks. I also feel his pain at asking "Why am i always writing engines?".

Neat video on fitting a game into 40kb

That was very cool. I love those optimization stories of how they squeeze out the most out of every single byte.
