I'm working on generating a valid VGA signal for the first time today.

Successful first VGA test. Next is to display a bitmap, then start working on displaying characters from a bitmapped font.

Success drawing bitmapped characters, so I'm off to write a program to convert a font sprite sheet to a Verilog memory file.


The first version of the VGA controller will support an 80x60 monochrome character cell display. This is actually reasonably close to the finished product, so I'll table it for now. There's some more work to do on the computer before I integrate the VGA controller with it.
