TX Library 1.4

This is my version of microtext. It's much easier to read due to the camelCase described here.

I didn't include the raster trick (it would increase the available rows from 16 to 18). By omitting it, the lowercase letters are separated (the "pixilation" doesn't blend everything together).

Most "TX" subprograms extend the LowRes NX instructions precisely, so there's no reason to explain them in detail...

Version 1.3 is a vast improvement! The escape sequence processor now runs so fast that strings don't need to be pre-processed. Since they can be processed on-the-fly, all the extension instructions now do so, which makes the demo source code so much more readable.

Version 1.4 improves a bunch of things, but mostly word wrap and scrolling are now pixel-perfect consistently, and TXRECT rectangles may now be adjoining. This is finally ready to use in a game!

I just realized that the program I made yesterday looks similar to this, but these are probably vastly different under the hood
does this program use raster effects?

Yes, this program uses raster effects. Another upload of mine does too, it's probably the most similar to yours.

The tutorial I'm working on also uses a 4x4 cell size at this upload. Access the 4x4 size by pressing [PAUSE].

4x4 cells at a good performance has really opened up a lot of possibilities
