#549 Limit V99x8 VDP VRAM access in MSX1 modes


Currently, the limits on accessing the VRAM in the V99x8’s MSX1 modes are not emulated.

As I understand it this information is available from the openMSX team’s V9938 measurements, just not interpreted and implemented yet.

    <wouterv> kanima, grauw: (very preliminary results) i started looking at some (old) logic-analyzer measurements we took on a v9938, more specifically for the msx1 modes (i mostly ignores those for my VDP VRAM timing article) ..
    <wouterv> .. it seems that on v9938 both text1 and text2 follow exactly the same vram access pattern
    <wouterv> so text1 is doing the same number of vram reads as text2, but more than half of them are dummy reads
    <wouterv> similarly all character modes use the exact same access pattern. So even though multi-color mode (screen 3) doesn't really need a color table, it still fetches dummy data at those moments in time
