Layer

From NeoGeo Development Wiki

The NeoGeo's rendering priority can be seen as layers. From back to front:

  • The backdrop: a solid color.
  • Sprites: their order in VRAM determines their priority. First: back, last: front.
  • The fix layer: a full-screen steady tile layer above everything else.

As chained sprites are always adjacent in VRAM, their priority isn't a special case.
