=The Blitting Processor is a component of the Wii's GX subsystem. It is responsible for copying the EFB to the XFB, doing the RGBA->YCbCr conversion and scaling/antialiasing in the process.==BP (blitting processor) registers===
The BP registers are accessed by writing a 8-bit value of 0x61 to the FIFO, followed by 32 bit value. This value is a bit weird - the high 8 bits are the register, and the low 24 bits are the register value.
====EFB source registers====
One can specify which part of the EFB is copied to the XFB or texture, using the following BP registers:
* 0x49: coordinates to top left of rectangle in EFB that will be copied (packed format, unknown)
* 0x4a: width and height-1 of rectangle to copy in EFB (again, unknown packed format)
====XFB destination registers====
The destination of the copy in the XFB is specified by the '''physical''' address of the XFB and the row stride (basically width of row, but no scaling appled).
{{regsimple | GX_BP_XFB_ADDR | addr=0x4B | bits=24 | access = R/W}}
* 0x4d: Low 10 bits specify row stride of destination.
====Copy control register====
{{reg32 | GX_BP_COPY_CONTROL | addr = 0x52 | hifields = 2 | lofields = 4 |
|8 |8 |
* bits 12-15: Set all to 1 to enable a copy.
====Copy filter registers====
Registers 0x01-0x04 are used for tricks like antialiasing. For a plain copy (i.e. no antialiasing) set all for to 0x666666.
====Beginning a copy====
The following must take place to do a copy:
* Setup clear and z clear registers (optional)
