Topic: NES/SNES Graphics Rendering

Posts 1 to 4 of 4

I know someone who thinks that the graphics on pre 64 bit (primarily NES and SNES) consoles were all prerendered, while I say that all those games drew their graphics in real time. I can't really find anything online that explains how the NES/SNES renders their graphics, so I thought I would ask here how the NES and SNES render their graphics.

Where am I going! Nowhere, unless if I say otherwise!

NES and most SNES games used sprites. Which is basically like moving clip art on the screen. The art is already rendered, just being displayed like a paint-by-numbers image.
