## Movie Player

This board is to show, discuss and archive useful combinator- and logic-creations.
Smart triggering, counters and sensors, useful circuitry, switching as an art , computers.
Please provide if possible always a blueprint of your creation.

### Movie Player

I built a full color movie player. See it in action:

Or download the save: sandstorm.zip

It has a 178x100 display, and 34MB of memory. In theory it could run at 60 FPS, in practice it runs at 1 FPS in Factorio 0.14.

I designed the movie player in 10 sections, then built them all from the same blueprint.

Each section has 3 parts: display, decoder, and memory.

Display

I use this combinator design to fit many color signals on one wire.

The processing time is O(n^2) where n is the number of signals the wire. So I split the signals between 5 wires to improve performance. Three wires can run along a column of combinators, and the other two hop along lamps to reach the distant combinators. The wire diagram looks like this. (They are really all green wires.)

Decoder

The decoder takes 5x 30-bit signals as input, and produces 50x 3-bit colors as output.

Here is how it works on a binary level:

Memory

The memory uses a simple lookup scheme, with a frame select signal on the green wire and 180 data signals on the red wire.

This decider combinator setup has poor performance when used with a high number of signals. Here are my performance stats:

You really should put this save to the Performance optimization - post your saves Thread. This really makes my computer burn

I'm out....

srs tho.

I consider myself not too un-smart, heck sometimes I get a little swell of pride when I do something moderately clever. But this, this blows my freekin' mind.

But before we talk about the circuit network, we have to talk about parallel universes.

Holy crap, 34 megabytes of memory! With that you could store the entirety of Doom 1 and 2 and still have 8MB to spare. That's seriously impressive!
