Data -> ADPCM -> Data

16th May 2022

I have an idea to check how well I should expect it to work, I plan to load the raw image data into cooledit, save it as adpcm, reopen it, save it raw, redraw in blitz. Then I should at least know if this test is even possible.

Data -> ADPCM -> Data

15th May 2022

hmmm..... Can't tell if better or worse :-P

[code]
; Blitz3D
Graphics 1024,900,0,2

Dim IndexTable(16)
Dim StepSizeTable(89)

For t = 0 To 15
Read IndexTable(t)
Next
;/* Table of index changes */
Data -1, -1, -1, -1, 2, 4, 6, 8
Data -1,*snip*

I also thought of something that might make a difference, adpcm expects signed 16but audio samples, whereas my pixel data is unsigned, so it maybe needs to be -32767 before and +32767 after the conversion...

OK, I've been trying to decode ADPCM audio using the many identical code examples online, but fail each and every time. So I thought I'd give it a go in blitz, using image data so I could SEE whats going on.
Turns out, it either doesn't work O*snip*

Capaldi could have been a much better doctor had he been given a good writing team. Best episode was the one where he was locked inside the pocket watch thing and was on his own for the full episode. I was looking forward to him being quite a grumpy doctor*snip*

The only part other than the pi pico is a https://www.waveshare.com/wiki/3.5inch_RPi_LCD_(B) lcd. It's slow so not much use for playing games on, but more than god enough for something like a keyboard which wont animate much.
