Display » H-Blank effects module

Contents

They allow to change how things are drawn in each screen horizontal line, since they transfer data to the GBA during each horizontal blanking (H-Blank) period.

For example, with a H-Blank effect you can change the transparent color every screen horizontal line, which is how games like Chrono Trigger fills their menus with a color gradient.

They differ from HDMA in that only a register can be written by a H-Blank effect in each screen horizontal line, but since multiple H-Blank effects can be displayed at the same time, non consecutive registers can be written with them.

They are also higher level than HDMA, so they should be your first option.
